i find the green fine, after changing the background from white to grey ( so it doesnt hurt the eyes), if we switch to a dark colour the place will look gloomy imo

I like the green as well. The original forum (from 1999 to 2001) was green and white too, so we went back to our roots.

Woke AF!

Blue is a color,
Awful is its name.
Even the greeks didn't have a word for it,
Keep it away from our domain!

Slightly darker shade of green, yes. Doesn't have to be dark green or any other color.

I'm used to this now so don't change it again. Unlike most people it seems, I prefer it on mobile. Just can't read chat which is gay.

Doesn't the forum have the option to have different skins for personal preference. It's been a while since I adminned a forum, but that was an option on free boards 5-6 years ago, so I'd assume you can do it with this.

It's not that the green is bad, it's just that it doesn't work with the site the way it is currently outlined and it's current colour combination.

White, grey and green just doesn't go very well. We look like Wolfsburg.

STAY AHEAD

The problem is not the colour.

Green, blue...who gives a fcuk?

It's slowness needs to be addressed, it's propa unresponsive.

I usually like green but this is a very ugly shade. Surely there are better options? Why not teal? It's both blue and green, so two in one!
