The new design is terrible.Maybe if you change the colors it will look better.
Also i realized that when im typing a post message and i try to focus in my words i see the the red bolder witch is killing my eyes!
I made some red & black color combinations so you will see the difference.
Please change those colors coz im here for about 10 minutes and my eyes hurt!

Vote for one of these color combinations so your eyes dont hurt!

numbers 1, 2, and 3 look exactly the same as the previous design.

Maybe you'll get used to it in a few days, who knows?

Davo, amybe your monitor color preset is messed up.Like you are using a high contrast or maybe a lower gamma so you don't see difference between the 1-3 color combinations.And maybe thats why you like the 4th color.

I use the sRGB (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SRGB_color_space) preset on my LCD monitor.That means that i dont need to config my colors.They are configured by the graphic card and the DVI cable so they are 100% correct.Thats why i may see the difference and the 4th color is killing my eyes.

Use anything but 4. i don't really care as long as it's not this one. it's hideous and really hard on the eyes; i've been on the board for maybe 5 minutes now and i'm already getting a headache.

seriously, who designed/implemented this, are they using a calibrated monitor and did they consult anyone beforehand?

I like the fact that it looks simple but I would really prefer the colours (especially the red) to be less bright. The contrast is putting a lot of strain on the eyes.

I had almost forgotten what it was like to talk to "alternative" teenagers on AIM, thanks for the friendly eyestrain inducing reminder Admin.

Seriously, the new colors are horrendous. The features are nice, but the colors are just fucking terrible. An option for different coloring would be neat, to be honest.

At least put the old forum design back!And set this new skin as default.I know vBulletin support multiple skins.So users can choose between the 2 skins.

The only thing that bothers me about the new layout is the thin red boxes surrounding EVERYTHING. If they got rid of that, I don't think the color combination would bother me as much.

I like the current version, but if it could be made somewhat less "bright" that would be better.

I think it's a combination of the red being too bright, and the heavy use of black that's annoying everyone. If they would lower the brightness of the red, and add a lighter shade of gray to put behind the messages, then it would be fine.

Those are words of wisdom. This new combination sucks. I hope this combination is temporal.

Black backgrounds on forums look terrible. I can't read anything properly. It makes the site look less mature.

when I see it, I was like "what the hell is going on?" but it doesn`t bother or me or something- come on, it`s a offspring forum and it doesn`t matter what colourse are here...we are going to get used to it. I hope because the red colour is really soo bright for my eyes...

#4 is obviously supposed to be colors of the album, or else they wouldn't have changed their entire website, myspace, and youtube to match it.... so #4 is my choice.

ROFL

Although it doesn't hurt my eyes, I'd hate for it to bother others', so I voted for 3. The blackness has to stay.

I made a very cool signature. I worked hard on it. I hope you guys like it. You can use it as well, I don't mind.

Cool quote buttons!

"Colour is an aspect of a website that is often picked haphazardly and without any thought from a beginner web designer."

Red
Symbolises: Passion, fire, love, lust, war, violence, blood, and aggression
Suitable Uses: Where the aim is to motivate an individual to take action, convey a warning, or stop the user.
Some believe that: It stimulates the appetite and makes objects seem closer and larger.

When using different shades of red on a website, be careful. Because of the way the eye sees red, pink (which is a light shade of red) does not go with red. Also bright red can be quite irritating if used over large areas.

Black
Symbolises: power, elegance, and sophistication, death (Western culture), evil, anger and sadness.

Just to be on the safe side, do not use over a wide area.

I like the current colour setup, and hope they don't change it for a while.

I've gotten use to it now. I think HeadAroundU needs to give it a rest between this and posting in every thread that needs moved that it needs to be moved. It got old as soon as he started.

Besides...the forum looks crisp and fresh now instead of old, faded, and worn out.
