Man, you guys are killing me. Who gives a shit about the color when most of us (using IE 7 & 8 ) CAN'T MAKE NEW POSTS. The colors are IRRELEVANT when posting functionality is Screwed!!!
From what I've seen the colors all come down to our Personal Tastes, our individual Opinions. I could say that I think only the old people with bad eyes are whining about the color change. Or I could say only nerds don't like Black Backgrounds with Red text....but I'm not going to say that and that's Not how I feel on the matter. It's also Not Cool to down people or call them names (even indirectly) because they may or may not like the new colors. I think we're all mature enough (or should be anyway) not to down on each other because some of us like the new colors and some don't. The Colors, no matter what they are, are IRRELEVANT When We Can't Post Or Navigate The Forums.
As for Personal Preference, the combination of Black and Red have ALWAYS been my two favorite colors and they Always Will Be no matter how old I get or bad my eyes get. When it really comes down to it though, white text on a black background is much easier to see and read for me. White background with Black Text is ok too. Bottom line is though I think we can refrain from flaming each other based on our own personal color tastes, wouldn't you all agree?
Let's Concentrate on WHAT'S REALLY IMPORTANT HERE... FIX THAT DAMN LOGO SO WE HAVE FUNCTIONALITY BACK WITH INTERNET EXPLORER. Microsoft's Internet Explorer is the MOST COMMON WEB BROWSER, Period. Stardock customers should NOT Be Forced to install another web browser just so we can get forum functionality back.
