Is everyone ready for a color change? We know the whiteness has been an eyestrain and you have voiced your complaints about it since last year. We're so sorry for the delay shy.gif  but we are finally ready and able to move forward with a change. We want this to be a community decision so we need your input!

 

Here are the color treatment choice options. Please vote in the poll for your favorite one. You can click on any image to see it in a larger size and then click through to see each with the arrow.

 

Once we narrow down to the favorite color treatment we'll work on the white background to match.

 

The poll will be open for two weeks so please vote by July 15th.

Too bad you can't offer them all as skins so each user can pick his/her own.

I'd love to see a light purple. smile.gif

this- as someone with vision issues, the inability to choose skins is very limiting to say the least.

*most* other chat boards I frequent have the ability to change skins.

I'll be the voice of opposition - I don't like the brown at all. Brown is a color I typically do like, but I don't know, the message board option just is completely unappealing to me.

Limey with purple works for me!

It blends some much easier with the green we already have going..

Took me forever to even notice a difference.  I like #2 after I zoomed out in my browser and could see the subtle changes in the colors.

I voted for 3, only because it seems to have the darkest background color. Stupid eye floaters. I'm one of those who would use a black background if it was an option, like I do on Wikipedia.

Thanks for looking into this!

To be honest, I can barely see any difference between those choices. Even compared to what is currently in place.

So, my vote is for option #5 (not available in the poll): indifferent.

Or option #6 (also not available in the poll): none of these.

Ditto.

 

I don't really like any of them - I too would use a black or even medium/dark blue background, also for vision problems. But #3 is the darkest so it gets my vote, even though I detest brown.

Okay, those all look the same to me, and apparently I'm not the only one. What's up with that? Not only do they all look the same, but they look the same as it is now. I don't get it!

 

Even if there are subtle differences, why not make some more widely varying choices? They all seem like variations on a theme.

 

Honestly, I don't like any of them. Blech. nono02.gif I didn't vote.

I like Lemony with purple. I to would love to have the ability to choose between them at any given time. I like to change my background when possible every few weeks according to my mood.

I had to scroll up and down quite a bit before I could perceive any difference.  Are there supposed to be two different colors in each of the 4 examples?  The green Mothering banner is the same color of green in each one.  The 'Welcome to Mothering dot Community' banner is the same blue-grey-purple in each one. 

 

I see slight differences in shade in the forum title boxes.  They're all fine.  I'd choose #1 if I had to. 

 

I still like the old MDC tan theme best, and miss it.  It was easy on the eyes.

Add me to the list of those who can't tell a difference. They all look basically like what we already have on my screen. I see purple on gray, purple on extremely light pink, green on gray and green on extremely light pink.  lol

ETA: No, wait, 4 is purple too not green; it's just like 2......... and they both look exactly like what we have now.
