We're getting a lot of mixed feeling about the current skin. I'm certainly going to make some changes, would be nice if you could all answer the poll questions so I can get a feel for what most people want.

It's alright, but I think you can improve it. I like fixed width but I'd like both 100% and 50%, also the main body is excellent

I think everything is alright except the colour of the body. I mean I know you just upgraded this and stuff, but the colour blue doesn't exactly fit in with the whole layout. The fixed width is nice. But some prefer it to be like the older skin.

If the colours are changed, I see no reason afterwards to change anything.

Not black, but rather a dark grey, a couple shades darker than that of the area where your account / ad background are.

I think it's okay as it is but to fit the background, maybe.

^ What Llama said.

It seems more suitable for this type of skin. Add a darker tone towards the bottom, and a lighter towards the top, just like the previous skin had. I think then it's reasonable to say it fits with the skin.

Yeah that's another suggestion, but if you ask me, the forum BG already gives enough appeal, adding that would be like more over-appeal.

Yeah, a nice shade of dark grey would do nicely with it I think. Maybe also make an effect like in the fast reply area where it goes from a lighter shade of dark blue to a very slightly darker shade of dark blue except in this case dark grey or light grey.

Alright I'll make most the blues dark grey and we'll see what that looks like. I'll make the background a little darker too.

I quite like it, though it needs some getting used to. My main problem with it, is that after a few minutes of using the new interface, I can't help but feel a little cramped.

Not only because of the width, but also because all the text is just a bit bigger and the buttons are much bigger now.
It looks nice, but it's a little less practical. At least, for me it is.
