    Color choices for the forum...

    I am hooked on forums that have a black background. Jsut seems to be easier on the eyes than the light backkgrounds.

    Not everyone likes "Red and Black Toolbox" color scheme, so there are a few others. Basically the red changes to gold, green, blue, or purple. Check 'em out.

    Look at the lower left corner drop down box.

    I've tweaked the various color templates to where I'm happy with them. Added a few more now too. I think there are 10 total.

    Cebby:
    Great site so far. Hope it keeps gaining momentum. I "heard" about it over on shop floor talk, just in case you're curious. My question... is it always a black background. I played with the colors a bit but the black always stays. Is that the way it is or am I doing something wrong?
    Thanks and keep up the good work.

    All the schemes have black backgrounds currently. I personally llike the look of the black background, so that's why I started there.

    If there is a call for a light/lighter background, I'll create some new schemes. Do you have any suggestions?

    Cebby:
    No suggestions. I just prefer the lighter backgrounds and would switch mine if I could. No problem, though, I enjoy your site anyway. Just thought I'd ask. Seems harder on the eyes to me but I've heard others say they like the black for the reason I don't. Just preference or maybe even just because I'm more used to the light colors. Keep up the good work.

    I'll make a couple of light ones. There are probablly others who prefer it the way you do. I need to purge a few colors out to make it managable I think.

    Is a light grey background like the reply window light enough?

    Hey, don't worry about it. I'm sure there are plenty of more pressing things to do. I just thought I'd use it if it was available. I'm not complaining about it.

    Re: Color choices for the forum...

    I might not be quick, but I'm thorough...

    Two light grey schemes now (light grey 1 and light grey 2). I couldn't bring myself to do a white background scheme - hurts my eyes...
