Mr Grim ... that's nice of you to think about how to improve the color scheme.

It looks like the blue has become very intense and the white has been dimmed down in your screenshot.

I was more thinking of leaving the blue part as it is and changing the white into a pastel color ... maybe a soft creme tone like this:

(Edit: I have replaced this screenshot with that one in posting No 17)

Hmm, that just remind me on some other idea. We have Windows touch coming up soon, but what about Windows smell ?
Wouldn't that be the next logical step ?

A smelly OS ... hmmmmmmmmmmmm ... lol

It looks a little blue...

It's not bad. Not sure if I'd like it more than the current skin or not. I do like darker skins...

Relax dude ... all great ideas have started small, right ?

Ok, and now I have tried to duplicate what I had in mind ...

It's a suggestion in progress, so we will have to see what to do with the white frame for example.

See, I was using a very dimmed down screen over last night and it was a pleasure for the eye ... honest, you should try for a few hours and you would see what I mean.
Anyway, the bright white does affect me and the suggestion above is 100% serious ... unlike the implementation of smell, lol.

The new v2 design is just right imo. Maybe people could submit their own themes and then we'd have more choice?

Ok, now I think that it would make perfectly sense to use a default color scheme which is up to the developer.
And let forum users select and save one to their own taste from a drop down menu, next to the one located on the very bottom left hand side of the index screen.

I was happy that Barman58 pointed me to this the other day, because by default SEVENFORUMS seem to be set to 3:4 screens.
Using this drop down menu I have changed it to 16:9 and it looks and feel definately better for my 24 inch screen.

So, to avoid any arguments whatsoever, wouldn't this additional option be a welcoming feature ? ... making SEVENFORUMS even more awesome than it is already anyway !
