Now you have me baffled. Why would you exclude the classic yellow?

Not sure why you got the idea that folks hate it, I changed back to the yellow it as soon as the 'new and improved' switch was thrown. I've been very happy with it, primarily because it's so easy to see where you've been, spotting new threads, easy on the eyes etc.

Just my opinion,
Steve

Also, not sure why but all the examples you provided looked pretty much the same to me. Gray background and white text boxes.

I don't think it's the background color that's bothering people. For me it's the childish graphics and fonts. I think the classic version is more appealing. If the classic showed bike model etc. in the profile I'd simply use it, and suspect many others would do the same.

Because a few people have voiced their aversion to the color certainly doesn't mean everybody hates it. But I am hating the new smilies.

I don't see the option to leave it as it is... the "classic" works fine for me...

No trees were killed in the posting of this message.
However, a large number of electrons were terribly inconvenienced.

94 GL1500 Aspencade - for Us.
04 Valkyrie Rune - for Me.

Right I'd like to see the site open in Classic colors including the background.

Jeff
The new editing software has x number of skins surely more than 4.

Are more colors are available?

Can you send us some screen shots? or links?

Whats the new editing program I may be able to get a copy and help find a skin.

If we are stuck with the above colors.........

I'll just use classic and hope you will add the model to the user info.

The LORD is my light and my salvation--so why should I be afraid? The LORD is my fortress, protecting me from danger, so why should I tremble?

I voted for grey or black, but, the example was NOTHING like the old dark background that I really had a much more ease reading. I would have chosen to remain with this yellow if all the examples are correct.

Hello all,

Keep the feedback coming, those sites are just examples and not 100%. You may have to choose the skin color in the bottom left hand corner of the sample sites if the white or other is the default there.

I am looking for a general consensus on which color or shading you guys want for the site. I know we can not please 100% of the community all the time but we try.
