Blue. Looks a lot more fresh.

Smurf it good.

The actual page has too much green. I would change the background to a light grey like in blue version, bottom site map, to grey. and unify "Welcome back" and "Search" area to a uniform dark grey bar.

Most forum software allow the option for users to select from a pre-determined set of themes. Wouldn't this be a more suitable option for all ? It would allow Ashley to stick with the green while the rest of us go smurf

Seriously, though, I would think a choice of 3 or 4 themes would be more preferable, with the default one - the one the public and non-registered see - using the more corporate looking blue.

Anyone else notice the "early adopters" tab in the blue screenshot? :)

i say green.
it's not really a fair comparison with those images, because the blue all matches, and the green has blue scirra lettering, and also the minty background is very blueish, while the blue theme is completely cohesive, here's a comparison on more even footing:(maybe the background should be grey, on the green, too?)



imho
I do think blue looks more professional. but I don't think it needs to look more professional. scirra is not going to appeal to larger corporations until down the line. scirra needs to be cool, fun, and powerful. not cold, corporate, and calculatedlucid2011-08-14 15:31:46

I like lucid's all-green theme better than the all-blue one. Right now the site is mainly green, but with bits of blue.

That's my main worry about the blue one - it's good, but it does look very corporate and serious. The blue one seems very "technical documentation for Microsoft Office", whereas green is more fun and lively.

I'm still being outvoted though :)Ashley2011-08-14 18:45:34
