I really like the new format, but the green on black... while very nice... kinda all bleeds together. It woudl be nice if there were other colors to clearly dileniate text areas, from labels, from borders, etc.....

Makes me think I am staring at an old Trash 80 screen again. Man that makes me feel old.

Laughing Oh, dear. You guys are bringing back memories! I remember programming "graphics" (and I use the word VERY lightly) with LOGO. Where's my turtle? Rolling Eyes

The first assertion is correct, though. It's one of the first things I noticed. The site has a very "futuristic" feel to it (kinda' that "Alien" feel) but the green on black is a bit tough on the eyes. Maybe Goribob can tweak it a bit Question

I like the green on black.

It's like happiness rolled up in a burrito topped with hopes and dreams. ^_^

The monitor I had was green on green. You must have had one of those fancy "16 color" monitors. 2 was more than enough colors.

FYI: That's not me. I wonder who would be using a handle so close to mine? Dunno.

Oh well..

Neat site here Guys! If you need any pointers with the software, just let me know!

I dunno either but if it becomes a problem, I'm sure a remedy can be found.

Its kinda lame, after a while things fade together and it hard to make out word.. especially if you cant read, or are blind..

i suggest gray and red... with white text..

or pink on white with purple outlines and heart smileys. Very Happy

I love this colour scheme. Its mellow because the black gives off a darker approach for the setting and the green is not bright enough to grip all your attention.
