While I like the green color (seems real close to the real Packer Green), the light green letters are very hard to read.

And while the mouse-over red is kind of cool, but the un-mouseovered black is next to impossible for the eyes of a geezer like me to find.
None of the above. It wouldn't have been a wasted vote. Obama and Romney -- Those were the wasted votes.

There are two skins, one for the site and one for the forums. I didn't touch the forums, yet.

Yes, the black on dark green is hard to see. Maybe it is only happening with certain Internet browsers. I use Safari.

I switched it back. Even clearly stating the forums skin had not yet been done, several folks ignored (didn't see) that statement and pointed out the few unpleasant colors that were lingering around.


It's going to take awhile to finish the forums skin, so maybe next weekend I'll get to it and finish it. Until then, we'll deal with the "Light" version.

Yes, but the white background nis much more practical, because all the links are visible. I think Kevin has been having problems because a lot of the CSS fields are used for multiple objects, making the color overlap excessive.

Slowly, I'm figuring it out. I'm using multiple CSS to figure out the Class names for all of the Objects to use. Then give each one a strange color and then play match maker.

Kevin,

I guess I was one of those. Probably because I'm a bit hazy on the vocabulary of "skin", "theme", etc. And, ahem, too lazy to worry about the difference.Tongue

Let me try to be more precise about what I like/don't like, and y'all can fit it into your plans for development, or not, as you see fit.

1. I much prefer a light (white/gray/light green/whatever) background when reading and writing posts. I'm a geezer -- white on dark printing is much harder on my eyes. ( I was one who, in the old site chose the "light" background option as my default. And the dark background in the chat was always frustrating to me, though the multiple colors of print helped there a bit.) However long it takes for everything to get settled is fine with me -- I haven't a clue how to set up a professional website this complicated, and I can wait. I'm fine with whatever timetable or order of doing things you choose.

However, if the long term solution ends up being white-print-on-dark-background, I expect I'll be hanging out here for shorter periods. (I am not threatening to leave PH, post less often, or anything like that. Just that my bad eyes, and my grumpiness when they get fatigued, will probably mean each visit I make will be shorter in duration.

2. And black on dark green (as with, at the moment, user names to the upper left of that user's post is worst. In fact, as it is at this moment (8 a.m Sunday), the only way I can tell who has a particular post is if I recognize the avatar.

3. I do like the dark green color elsewhere-- as borders, button backgrounds, places where there are a limited number of words, etc. It looks Packer Green, after all. And it provides nice contrast between the parts of the page.

There will be two versions, Light and Dark with the latter being the default. You can select Light if you want.

Hate to tell you this, but they haven't yet figured out a way to have a computer piss on itself. Not even with purple piss.
