Looks and Appearances
Th-hh. Well, I see 1 point to 'report' now, but it may be needed in the future as well - should some roughnesses or inconcistencies are noticed...
For example, with 150% zoom on Chrome, I now have the "Logout" link directly beneath the "Home" one (which I use quite often).  Unless logging out here requires sort of confirmation (haven't checked that so far), it'll be not very convenient to mishit a button there...
I suggest we could lose "My" in the bookmarks link.

By the by!  I've checked - in the poll options - the box allowing you to change your voting, so...  Let's see - and let us check that thing as well, oki?

I don't like the colors and I'm right.
A matter of attitude.

Something along these lines will probably remain for the time being, but you can always write a user CSS. What kind of colors would you have?

Blue is the easiest to look at on screen, for me. Most of my themes lean toward those shades of blue/teal.

As ensbb3 said, blue's nice. What I don't like are the tones being used, specially the header and the page's bottom layer. Also the orange is difficult to match with such blue tones. Being a complementary color doesn't mean to be harmonic.

See? It doesn't work in my opinion.


I would go more along these tones.

The orange looks pretty decent to me. I mean, it's not like I picked it just because some stupid theory claims it's complementary. However, my screen is a cheap LCD and your screen probably isn't calibrated either. :) As far as it goes it actually looks better on my higher quality phone screen.

Anyway, I'd forgotten to add linear-gradient support for older browsers (do you use Opera 11 or something?). You may or may not like it better now.

What Bel referred to looks rather pinkish to me. I don't like it either, but I can go with it.
What I meant (in another thread) is a set of chooseable colour schemes - either preset or customiseable. For example, if I don't like something, I could tinker about it - either choosing another preset or something like "x=1, y=2, z=3" (see how a user can choose his car's colour in this racing game).

Thanks to the changes I made it's easier to create a userstyle now.

Is it in the settings?

No, I mean there's less that needs to be overridden. Userstyles are a browser thing. I've already added one aspect of userstyles as a site preference, but I don't want to slow down processing too much. In any case I don't have the time.

The new Logo looks great, & the colors are comfortably smooth to the eyes now.

Good Job Fran!!
