We've recently upgraded our forum software, and it has a good number of very handy new features. The problem though, is that our skin, IP-Duo, is incompatible with nearly all of them! So for the last few days we've been toiling over a new, up to date skin to use for everyone, and have come up with the following options:

 

We believe that everyone should find something they like in this list, so click the links, check them out for a bit, and post your votes! The sooner we have a definitive answer, the sooner we can all enjoy the new skin!

 

Edit: Note that Graphite is currently installed to the forums, and can be selected via the drop-down menu at the bottom of the page, or by clicking This Link. To go back to IP-Duo, click here or use the dropdown.

I'm gonna have to say Velvet, Deflection or Thoreau: Dark. I really like Velvet's banners, but I like Deflection & Thoreau's topic icons. I really don't like the banner down the side of Graphite. Chameleon's harsh black-on-white contrast hurts my eyes. However, Thoreau: Dark and Deflection remind me of other forums that seemed to be trying to hard to be cool. So Velvet it is (even if it does remind me of the rather clinical Ubuntu forums).

Graphite and Thoreau Dark for me. Although I voted for Thoreau Dark.

Actually, I tried Graphite on the forums, and whilst I still hate that banner down the left and the top banner is too small, I do love the darker background. I don't like the smilies on Graphite and Deflection and Deflection has that same clinical feel as Ubuntu that doesn't suit nom. :/

 

So I'm changing my vote back to my first thought: Thoreau: Dark

 

EDIT: Didn't mention that I think it's really important that the skin lets you tell one post from another really easilly, which IP-duo does and Graphite doesn't.

Thoreau: Dark all the way.. Just seems alot easier to read than the others.

I personally hate Graphite, which is how we ended up with choices and this poll. I'm more partial to brighter themes because reading dark forums gets old pretty quick. That said, I prefer Chameleon or Deflection as I feel they have an easy to use layout.

 

I'd like to reiterate that we'll likely get more than one theme if there's a strong runner up.

I really dont like ANY of them. They are either too dark or too bright. I like IP-Duo because its got a nice in between Blue-Gray, but I dont really have any such option here. Too dark is preferable to too bright, so I have to vote Thoreau Dark. :/
