    1. borders are poorly define on the thread page, and the editing box when you type your reply is still light grey and white.

    2. The buttons are gone. reply, edit, report and all that biz are just text now.

    3. the column that tells me how many times i've viewed a post today makes my page hard to read.

    IGNORE ABOVE I'M HAPPY NOW.

    Actually, so long as the color theme doesn't blind me when I wake up (like the default does).. I think it'll be fine :p

    I'll be honest, it isn't that bad, better than the default blue and white. Well dash hit the obvious gripes so there isn't anything else to complain about, except that instead of buttons I am seeing text links for things like rep, report and contact (like msn.)

    I think I agree with Crae but I can't actually read his post to see what it was he said. :p

    Please, can we at least have a lighter colored font ASAP so that we can actually read forums without having to highlight the text?

    Somehow the thing that says what threads/forums have a new post in them is gone

    Hmmm... yeah, it is a shade too dark, though I think if the text was brightened it wouldn't be quite as bad. Maybe white text, Green borders?

    Edit: Ok, the new graphics definately make this look nicer.

    Text should be a dull orange and we'll be good to go. Or, "SandyBrown" as the forum likes to call it.

    much easier to read, but maybe a notch duller.

    Well, is that doable? I really wasn't planning on keeping this one so I didn't want to tweak the poo out of it...but I guess if it works for everyone, I will.

    I actually really like orange. the darker the better though IMHO.
    grey's/black's/orange's can make an awesome looking color scheme
