Okay ... Vote for what you like. You can choose three that you like best (or less if you don't like three options).

Three of the choices are installed now, the Prosilver, Subsilver2, and Black Pearl Dark Blue (which might get some button color changes and other tweaks based on feedback). These you can check out 'live' by going to the user control panel and choosing a different skin at the 'board preferences' tab.

The other four are styles that have been suggested. You can see a mock-up of each one by clicking the name/link. These are interactive, so you can peek at what some of the thread-level views are as well. So check out:
Chronicles, Glacier, Getaway Green, and ProDark.

The poll will run for three weeks, and, if you decide you've changed your mind you can switch 'em about ...

I'm likely to keep just the top four scoring skins, and I think that the style that garners the most votes overall will become our default, though that can be discussed later ...

I was rather surprised to see that the skins did much more than merely changing colors and fonts.
That being said, I suppose I have become attached to subsilver2, especially considering that I know where all the links are when I am using it.

Some of those skins are radically than the one I use.
That means that this application is considerably more flexible thanI had orhinally thought it was.

Kudos to the designers.

ROFL. Taliesi n, it's just templates and css. You can move things around, add things and delete things. Not that hard once you have your head around the basics.

Pro dark pulls my eyes out of my head.

The rest I can read and are easy on my eyes.

And ... Please note that we can tweak thinks like font colors and button colors fairly easily (once I figure out what gets called where in the skin :cheeky: ). Right now we're looking at overall appearance ...

ok, I dislike chronicles because of font colors making it hard to see who's on.

Are you using Firefox and do you have any web dev add-ons?

Firefox yes, but no web dev stuff. Any suggestions? (or must-haves?)

Well, I'm stupid. I can't figure out how to vote. I don't see any buttons or anything to vote with.
