    Ok, so i'm doing some concept work for one of my web sites and not sure if I like the darker theme or the lighter theme. So I was wondering if you guys/gals can tell me what you prefer.

    No need to apologize, Kronnie. Everyone has the right to their opinion, even if they are wrong, like you. :p

    I want the site to be complex, but only if you really pay attention to it. Otherwise it's just a pretty background or something. Ja know?

    I'm blond... and I'm the Evil Twin... so I really don't quite get it?
    The dark one.... I really kind of liked
    The light one.... had additional detail (i.e."She's fat. And in other news, women all around the world are cheating on their husbands and boyfriends")

    ...oh, hell.... I'm just going to bed - Rose will be very pissed in the morning :rofl

    [banana]Did I miss something? - Or am I just very drunk?[/banana]

    Well, I have decided to go with the light one. And I just got the domain today so now i'm just playing around on a temp server until the entire site is copacetic.

    I took a few web design classes. They always stressed to us that it's sooooooo important for the viewers to be able to read the material easily without having to strain their eyes. So, keeping that in the back of my mind while I make a decision... I choose dark.

    The contrast with everything will be much darker and most likely stroked. And the text will be a dark dark grey or black itself. What's going to suck is the recoding and RSS feeds. *Shudders*
