Colours are terrible.

When are the colours going to be changed on this forum? It looks as though it's been through the wash to many times. I much prefer the old forum colours, at least they don't cause eye strain. Pink, pink and more pink!!

Re: Colours are terrible.

I agree, the colour scheme is terrible but ISTR that SMF is skinable, maybe a few skins wouldn't go amiss.

Re: Colours are terrible.

I just found that you can change the skin yourself to one of the default ones. Go to Profile then Look and Layout Preferences then Current Theme: XXX (change). Just need to get Colin to add a few more Smiley

Re: Colours are terrible.

You might be able to but that option isn't in my profile as far as I can see

Re: Colours are terrible.

Nor me.  Is this something that has yet to be rolled out to members or just that the customisation is wrong?

Re: Colours are terrible.

Nor me. I've looked in the PUG forums and can see the option in my Profile on there so I know I'm looking in the right pace.

Re: Colours are terrible.

Got to agree, colours are not going to be popular!  Personally I think they are a little too light for a white background.
Any chance of some choices then?
Thanks in advance,
Rich.

Re: Colours are terrible.

Yes have to agree something definitely needs be done about the colour, it is drab and looks like something that has been through a car wash Grin.

Re: Colours are terrible.

another vote here to get the colours changed, much to 'soft'. We're not all 20-somethings with 20-20 vision you know ;-)

Re: Colours are terrible.

Why don't you just give us a choice of themes, just like the unhacked phpBB board etc etc.. being stuck with one colour is rather boring you know - and besides, what difference does it make to anyone else if you want your theme colour to be bright orange or similar?

Re: Colours are terrible.

Yep, agreed... the pink text on white background has to be the worst colour combination for readability. If themes aren't allowed, then can;t the default be changed to black text on white background - surely the best colour combination for text based forums?

Re: Colours are terrible.

What's all this about pale washed-out pink?
This is pale washed-out pink!
To me the forum seems to be using a slightly paler washed-out version of what I'm writing here in something that's described as purple.

Re: Colours are terrible.

I'd call it pinky-purple, puce-like. Not nice. Can't change them using the options available in profile so wearing coloured spex. Occam's Razor (google it  Smiley)
