Didn't know Rob and Jamie were fans of ubuntu, I wonder if this is part of an automatic update.

It's a bit harsh for my taste. The blue was easier on my eyes.

Man, I sound old.

It better matches the style of the banner across the top of the home-page, though.

It doesn't make you sound old. It makes you sound coddled and weak, like your eyes are somehow being irrepairably damaged by staring at the wrong combination of colored lights. Also, I agree wholeheartedly.

The contrast for the dark brown text on the darker of the 2 brown backgrounds could be the issue. One option would be to darken the text (or lighten the darker of the 2 backgrounds).

Also, the colour for forums with new posts doesn't stand out quite so much.

I think it's a little weird but I'm getting used to it.

I like it. Browns are good colors.

I like it better than the blue. I think it matches the front page better too.

I agree that the overall look definitely matches the site better. I think its the text colors, particularly the red text, that bothers me.

And, now that I think about it, most of the forums I've spent a lot of time on have had blue themes. That might have something to do with my reaction to this.

Oddly enough I seem to be getting used to it, now. Maybe the reason it was jarring at first is just because most forums have a white/blue color scheme.

I'm digging it. Decent mix of colors. Pretty streamlined too. Now we just need a banner to replace the phpbb. Any takers?

Using a browser with site-specific user stylesheets (Opera), this one helped:
Code: Select all
div.content {
    color: black !important;
}

Maybe instead of black a darker brown would do, too.
