My eyes find black text on bright white background (on a computer) to be headache inducing.


I do, too.  On those days when I'm here for hours straight, I reach a point where I can't read the screen and am forced to walk away...and then when I get back it takes time to remember exactly what I was doing, which increases the chances of making mistakes.


If I ever do replace the default theme, ease of use and readability will be paramount considerations.

Just for being such a lovely group of people...here's a little screen capture of the upgrade that's being built as we speak.  I've been installing a few of the branches as they're being worked on, just to play around with.

I have no idea what the final result will look like, but here's what they have thus far. :)

Nice to know it isn't just me!  I really do prefer the default theme, myself.  I know where everything is, can tell what's new at a glance, find it's easier on my eyes, and just more comfortable overall.
I used ipthe new theme for a day and then retuned to the old theme.  When I have  to, I will adapt but I really prefer the old theme.  I think the limited color scheme made it more difficult to find things.  It is ticklish, you want a theme bright enough so you see different things but not so bright it puts your eyes out.

I had been following this thread while I was gone so I could keep up on what was going on here :-)
I like the new theme. I haven't tried the others yet but the default is a keeper in my mind  :thumbsup: <<< love the little thumbs up dude!
