I'm also all for black, its a great colour to have, but I don't think it would do well as a default. The default like I said should be a bit closer to home, rather than the usual white, which btw, I totally agree with CF, is hideous. It reminds me of going through google with all the useless hits you usually get which have nothing to do with what you want Also its simply boring to look at, and seems so generic. No matter how much you spice up a forum/site, if the background is white, it still looks like someones first go at using html, even though it clearly isn't.

Don't mind the image that much though, but the background...

All that said, It'd make the site more appealing visually to newcomers, but if thats not on the agenda to attract more numbers, well then yea. I think it'd be nice though, even though I use Twinsun at night/Cave exit anyway. Unless its no trouble at all, I don't think its worth changing seeing as so many people use other backgrounds anyway

I always considered the opposite, that newbies to HTML always seem to use black because the colour is "cool".

Echomote - Have you ever watched a picture of a lamp on your monitor? Your eyes hurts even though the actual image content contains less white than a plain white screen.
I can't say I have ever experienced that. Wouldn't the room have to be like really dark too? In which case brings back the point that there's a brightness control on the monitor for a reason.

Black is easy and relaxed.

Btw, newcomers don't have a choice.
MBN is the only real, biggest, most visited forum/site for LBA.

I never tought about this... When I was a newcomer, I didn't really care for the design. I was just happy to find all these informations and programs about LBA. I think the default should be the white one, I just tried some different themes, and the white seems the most easy to understand, especially because it's so lighty (or whatever the adjective is).

I usually pefer lighter skins, but on the MBN I have always used a dark skin. You should make a custom skin, or download a different vbulletin skin to use. The current ones are just the default vbulletin skin with some colour values edited.

On my forum I have a skin with an LBA header:



it has a good mixture of light and dark.

I'm sure you're free to suggest any theme you want (if you made it). Upload it and if it's cool I don't see why El wouldn't add it to the selection.

Btw: Poll is a tie. 8 want to keep white, and 8 want a change.

Well, since El is on one side, I think that side wins.

One could say; since El actually bothered to vote, he somewhat cares about the poll
