Ohhhhh! This is the reason! After I visited this board yesterday, my head started hurting real bad!!! And I couldn't even sleep at night. http://geekvillage.com/ubb/frown.gif

Steve... Maybe you should change the colors again! http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif

you guys don't like the grey? I think they blend much better, kinda draws you toward the middle of the screen. hrm, just my thoughts, (i like it).

To be honest, this color gotta go. Grey is a great color but it does not match with green, yellow, and blue tables. Plus the logos don't mix too with that blue border. Also, what happened to the old light bulbs?? I like changes, changes are good, but this will make me wear glasses steve.

The grey is alright, I think it's the icky green and yellow that have to go. Though I suppose someone could make an argument that it is grey's fault http://geekvillage.com/ubb/wink.gif.

No problem...! http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif

I don't know. It's rainy outside so the grey background just seems to go along with it very well. Haahahaha!

I never actually noticed the background color until it was changed to this ugly gray. I think it's almost gloomy personally. Not that it'll ever effect my opinion of the board http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif but i liked the old colors better.... heh, like i said it doesn't really matter http://geekvillage.com/ubb/tongue.gif

Hello friends, members, visitors, color guides, decorators, promoters, and designers.

LOL

My girlfriend thought you wouldn't notice http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif

Boy was she wrong! Anyway, I'm still working on the style changes and graphics. The "dododo" green is history. Replaced with a soft yellow which should eliminate any headaches.

geek/talk has always been a colorful place with a distinct and unique "culture". I'm trying my best to carry this into our new styles. My girlfriend is still amazed. I had no doubts that you would notice and "yak"

Colorful members
Colorful posts
Colorful language
Colorful "characters"

Thanks very much for sharing your thoughts.

Best Regards,
Steve_S

I dont like the new colors. http://geekvillage.com/ubb/mad.gif The grey is ok but this ugly beige/cream type color is gross. Thats just my opinion though. http://geekvillage.com/ubb/tongue.gif

I think the original colors were much better...

A grey background with beige and blue just seems a little dull. Bring back the original colors!

How about a chartruce background, with alternating pink and turquiose table colors? Throw in some "Fire Engine Red" text, and we have a color scheme! Woo-hoo! http://geekvillage.com/ubb/wink.gif

How do you know "you can't make EVERYBODY happy"?
How do you know "there will always be SOMEBODY that isn't satisfied with the colors"?

Have you ask EVERYONE, past, present, and future to draw this conclusion? next, you'll be stating that you know the exact number of hairs on your head...

I don't have to ask EVERYBODY to find out that not EVERYBODY is satisfied,,, for instance, i don't like this yellow color I'M NOT SATISFIED,,, i'm just not complaining, i only have to ask enough people to find ONE person that isn't happy, because if ONE person isn't happy then NOT EVERYBODY is happy... and i don't claim to know everything, its just common sense,,, people are different, they like different things, some like the colors, some don't, but most of the time people don't complain because they know it doesn't really matter... http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif

But, how do you know "you can't make EVERYBODY happy."? ...unless you have tried to make EVERYBODY happy (past, present, and future) and failed? How do you know there will "always be SOMEBODY that isn't satisfied with the colors" if you have not lived 'always' and polled all the somebodies to find out? http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif Think!

imo, This is sad, really sad! so, according to you, "most people" are wimps and just lie down and take whatever is dished out? hmmm, there you go again... http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif How do you know most people don't complain? What sort of world do you live in? are there a lot of people giving up and being walked on, so to speak?

Shane, I take it you are or have been married??? That is rule #1 they teach us married guys.....always let the woman think she is right.....and rule #2 is always let them pick out your colors. When you get married, you seem to forget how to dress properly. No, you can't wear black sweat pants with an orange shirt and grey tie to a wedding....even if you tuck the shirt in!

Alright first of all as long as ONE person is unhappy than its IMPOSSIBLE for EVERYBODY to be happy (the reason the colors were originally changed is because somebody posted about them needing to be changed, he was unhappy http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif and so the colors were changed and now even more people are unhappy)... and its not that people are wimpy and don't want to stand up for themselves (no its much worse) its that a lot of people don't really care (cuz its not life threatening or anything, they are JUST colors http://geekvillage.com/ubb/tongue.gif and you won't die if you don't like them)

No offense, but this topic (how there will always be one unsatisfied member) is really not worth arguing about. Out of 1,112 members in total, there will obviously always be at least 1 unsatisfied member. Everyone has their own opinion and taste in different colors and styles.

I dont like the grey background because its the EXACT same color as my verticle scroll bar...Makes it a little confusing...

...gray can look really nice if you mix it with the right colors. Burgundy looks good with gray, but not too many webmasters use it because one of their lighter colors would have to be a shade of pink. http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif Anyway, today, I set up a message board (http://pleasuresofthemind.community.everyone.net)to compliment my Pleasures of the Mind site and used gray, light blue, medium blue, and white. It's tough to find 4 complimenting colors on that silly (web-safe) color picker.
