    Ooh, new thing!

    I really like the gold accents.
    I second (third?) the other people who said that the background's too dark for text to be easily read, though.

    Is there any way for people to mock up color schemes for seebs to implement?

    @Wiwaxia I was planning taking some screen shots and playing with my art programs to do just that. Seebs would have to play a bit to find the exact colors, but it would give some general ideas/samples.

    I like the new colour scheme, but the green is a bit jarring. A light olive or khaki might work better

    Is there a new colour scheme? I've still got the blurple... o3o Is there a way to change it that I'm missing?

    I still have the purple. I like the purple. I don't see a problem with it.

    At the bottom of the forum there's a line which should say "Default Style" on the left and "Contact Us/Help/etc" in the right. Click Default Style, there's a pop-up with options.

    @sicknastyspades TY! I was wondering what I was missing, haha. The new layout looks nice, though it's going to take some getting used to (change, hiss). Def meshes better with the logo than blurple, at any rate. Works for me.

    Edit: Though now that I look at it, I think the links (like sns's name) are sort of hard to read on the background. I think they would be better darker?

    Played with colors for a bit and here's a variation on the alt. I had a hard time altering some of the text color and it's a bit of a rough job, but it's an idea for the color scheme. Critiques/comments are welcome.

    @rorleuaisen Oh that looks absolutely lovely :3 It also makes me think of the Life aspect colors.

    What if we went with greens and teals insyead of those warm browns? Then the gold would pop and the logo wouldnt stick out so much. It only has vague hints of brown.

    Failing that, if we're married to the browns, could we go for cooler, more olivy browns?

    I like the idea of having several options @Lissiel.
    If we all contribute colors it would cut down on the work Seebs and Luka have to do. This way people can choose what best suits them.

    @Lissiel The browns help the Logo not clash, so I am a bit limited by what goes with it, but I can try that. I don't know if Seebs minds creating several alts, but if we can get some Logo variations we could make several(we could make like six. That would be awesome xD)

    Where's a blushing emoticon when you need it? (;u; Thank you!)

    eta: Also, if any one else has some color schemes they want to see, I can try to whip something up.

    @rorleuaisen Holy shit both of those are gorgeous. Such pretty soft colours.

    Question, did seebs lighten the brown background or am I just more used to it now? Stuff's much easier to read than it was at first and I don't know what the deal is with that. Probably the latter but I want to knowww.

    @sicknastyspades Danke ^_^

    Also, It's still just as dark. I've been keeping with the original theme so I haven't adjusted to it.
