I was thinking to myself today and we had some of our best posting activity when we were using our white/orange skin back in 2003-2004. Could it be that dark skins put people in fear of posting more? Maybe it makes them feel tired, as the night has arisen, and the sun has gone down? I have definitely seen more members online than usual. Also, I noticed this computer I'm using can handle this new skin we have a lot better than the one we had before.

Perhaps it's just me and my silly observations... we shall see! :P

I didn't vote because I don't think it really matters.

but I do find that the lighter skin (not white) is easier on the eyes. a white skin is to bright, and the darker skins can tire my eyes out over time.

I would prefer a dark skin, but preferably not the one we had before. Ordinarily, I prefer dark skins on every forum I visit.

A bright skin actually encourages me not to post as often. I would also guess more people are online because 1Emu is back in action after a rather long hiatus.

I would prefer an option over the two :P.

But if you had to pick, light skins are harder on the eyes but visually appealing. Dark skins are easy on the eyes but look....

Anyways, I voted light.

I've always preferred dark skins but an option for either is always better for a better user experience.

You know if you didn't read the topic of this thread it would be very interesting just reading the posts...

And I don't care about forum color.

While I universally prefer dark skins, now that I've had to put up with this lighter version for while now, it's rally nice.

Whether or not a lighter skin actually makes people want to post more, who knows. Perhaps some are more susceptible to the psychology and metal angle of colors, tones and such.

I voted No. Light skins do NOT make me post more.

I miss the last skin, but... Is it posable to have a good amount of skins? That way there are choices?
