as of this morning I think there is a definite improvement as far as readability goes. I noticed there don't seem to be any test of codebox or quotes though, so I don't know how those look on the new colors.

Something that may help (or completely fail to) in choosing some colours:
http://www.nativewin...ware/index.html


Designing web pages (or any type of user interface) for individuals with color vision deficiencies can be a challenge. Descriptions on what colors are confused by individuals with color vision deficiencies abound, but are difficult to apply in practice. What does it mean that a particular type of color vision deficiency causes individuals to confuse reds and greens? What colors do such individuals actually perceive? This file explains a little about color vision deficiencies and gives you a full 216 web color pallete showing how different colors are perceived by those with color vision deficiencies. The color chart also gives you the hexidecimal and rgb values for each of the 216 colors as seen with Normal vision, and those suffering with Protanopia, Deuteranopia and Tritanoptia vision problems.

...but it's anyway an interesting read... :hyper:

For me on the first view it looks very readable. (I did not try to browse through all possible items).

In no particular order:
  • it's light blue
  • it's pastel
  • it's readable

In one word it is VERY similar to the default (real "classical) skin, example:

;)

Not exactly an example of a "breaking news" type of design ;), but EXACTLY for this reason, allright. :)

There won't be a new customized theme soon. The designer moved forward onto other projects as we won't be moving the forum software anywhere soon as well.

Thank you for your suggestions.. :dubbio:
