Hi all-

I've been making changes to the site design/color scheme. As I go through this, if you want to add constructive criticism or suggestions add them here. Obviously the goal is to make this site able to support multiple skins but this is your chance to add your input on the default skins. This will be one and the previous one with the white backgrounds will be another. Even if you have a favorite site that you think has design qualities you'd like to see in LT let us know. We'll take all suggestions and do our best to make a kick a$$ site.

Thank you everyone.

If you have an Mac display please let me know if the colors in the title bar are the same. On every PC display it looks fine. The lite green in the logo looks the same as the green on the left hand side. When I looked on 2 different Apple displays they look like 2 different greens.

So please if you have a mac display let me know if you get the same results.

PS - I think we should also add styles to all the text boxes and text areas on the site, too, especially with the dark themes. The white input boxes are a little out-of-place, IMHO.

I Agree. Maybe even just a more off-white or gradient. We'll see.

Just some basic thoughts right now, and I'll help with some of this, of course.

-- Text beneath the "search" area on the left nav has black letters that need a color update.

-- Text on these reply pages and stuff is often darker in color as well

-- Links on the bottom bar of the page to the privacy policy and terms of use are white on the orange background, and should be updated/changed.

-- What do you think of the gray background? On most pages you can't notice it because the page extends beyond the height of your screen, but on pages where there aren't any follow up comments to forums posts and stuff, you can see the gray. I'm still reserved on what I think of it at this point. It's not bad, but I wonder if maybe it should be adjusted.

-- I'll definitely be getting theme support in at some point in the future.

Sounds like we're on the same wavelength. I'll get cracking on those soon.
