Logo vs color scheme

    I made a Stylish theme based off of/requiring the Alt Color Scheme (brown/gold). I just uploaded it up to User Styles.org, so if you want to take a look at it, go here.

    Probably not completely finished with it, but I'm at a point where I need to take a break from working on it, and it'd be nice to get some input. And... also show off a little while I'm still pleased with it and am able to not be irritated by the little details I ended up missing.

    I love that one @Carcosa !

    I like the logo colors there - the gold stands out more and the background looks less busy and more earthy, which is fitting.

    @Carcosa It's super pretty! The only issue for me is that the background in the reply box makes what you're typing really hard to read.

    Any chance you could elaborate on that? I think I need more context as to where the reply box is located on the page to better understand what I might need to fix to make things easier to use.

    Edit: Okay, nevermind, just had a chance to try it out in Chrome, and I see exactly what you're talking about. Bleck.

    @Carcosa would you like me make your color theme one of the official alt themes?

    finally, a color scheme other than default that is color coordinated

    thank you @rorleuaisen

    my aesthetic on any site or platform that allows it is dark with light text [example tumblr:


    and i think that also helps with computer performance? i forget the logistics behind it, i just woke up and am doing my daily puttering around on the internet, but a neutral grey/black theme with gold/silver accents might be a good idea? i'm probably gonna stick with teal and gold, but this would be a nice alternative

    I love the teal and green theme so I'm using that now, but I read stuff better on light text/dark background so if that was an alternate theme that would be great too

    trivia point: xenforo's default is to have the textbox background and the main page background be IDENTICAL, like, they are literally the same color, not just similar.

    @rorleuaisen, I adore the teals and greens. The gold outlines around things are interacting weirdly with the pale green background for me, though. Maybe because the colors are both pretty light and fairly close in value? The gold looks a little like it's trying to glow but it's also hard to see, and it's freaking my eyes out a bit. This may be a me problem, though.

    -sniffs new colourscheme, gives it a good whack to see if it will bite- I like the colours a lot, Would purrfur if the textboxes and stuff that is lighter in main theme was lighter here too to make it more visible.

    I LOVE the color scheme but seconding @Codeless on the lighter color bits @_@ I also had some trouble reading the profile post sections as distinct sections ngl

    hrmmm honestly it's really kinda soothing which I appreciate, the blue gets a little glare-y when I Night Kintsugi?

    FWIW, I don't think relative brightness should have any impact on computer performance. And usually won't even on power consumption, because with rare exceptions, backlight intensity doesn't actually get varied for color changes.

    @Verily Imma have to play with colors on that cause some objects have connecting pallete and I may need to fiddle with it so that I can get the lines a better color without altering the other things that I want to stay gold toned.

    Also adjusted text box color. You guys want even more contrast?
