Hehehe I might have a crack at one just for fun... I have a pretty neat idea for a banner scheme... I dunno, I'll see if I get inspired over the weekend perhaps... after my daughters birthday party on Saturday 8)

[quote="vinny":26ll00g4]the green for the czar-green theme isn't quite right; it either has a bit more yellow mixed in the overall colour or it had parts that would fade into a lighter green; it could also be a combination of both! the green is throwing me off, that's pretty much the only reason i'm not using that theme, sorry, deadeye =P[/quote:26ll00g4]

Yeah, looking at it now I think you're right. Like I said in the other thread, all I really had to go on was Doppel's signature and my own (poor) memory. I think it did come out a little too olive. It's close, though. And I agree with Rich, the header is a little to dark and drab. I'll change that when I get around to it.

And I'll see if I can find the old Czar Green theme for the previous board version and compare it. That's probably what I should have done in the first place... oh well :P

The new scheme takes some getting used to. I don't really like it at first glance. It pushes me away. While the posts are still fine to read, none of the other navigation is really very pleasing. The colours for text and links just doesn't pop out... and there are so many different colours, it lacks harmony; like, you just chose random colours for each link type / information object, because you can. The subtle differences aren't very good. In my opinion it should either all be the same, or totally full of pleasing, but limited-in-quantity, contrasts.

The Czar-Orange scheme is pretty nice... colours harmonize well and its pleasing to the eye. The default scheme does need more work still, but I'm happy with the orange theme personally.
