I like the new blog, but I don't want a white forum. I think the black design is better here. But I think the designs for the blog and the forum should be the same. That's why I don't know if I like it or not...
We are not a apple freak forum, we are a programming/gaming/macosx-forum (It is a difference if I say Apple or MacOS, I think many people here know the meaning of hackintosh ;-) ), that's why I think we should keep the black one instead of a white one.

Tweaked the colors a little on the Blog.
And Korich, don't go solo anymore with this kind of thing.

About the Black Style:
I too like the black more than white, but statistics have shown that white forums get more members than black ones. (And people stay longer because black feels kinda shady)
The last style we had almost half a year ago was white and kinda ugly, and loco, doc and me spend a great amount of time getting something together that was functional and stylish looking.

Due to phpBB's bugs and limitations we will switch over to something new in some months (simplemachines), and most likely get a flashy new white style.
But simplemachines doesn't hurry getting their new board out of beta, and the required mods that we need aslo don't exist yet or are incompatible with their new board type.
So i think we will continue to be at home here on this board.
And we can't change everything every couple of months, it annoys the users and the admins. (i mostly have to do this)


...
I still think the old theme fit the front page better because the colors and the style matched.

Even though the darker color was slick, the white makes it easier for my eyes to read and process quicker. The darker one, obviously we could all read it, but it strained your eyes just "a little". Maybe, I am too self-conscious when it comes to these things.

I think the blog looks much better than the old one, but I'm not too fond of dark colors.

Agreed, black letters are less straining.....and the new blog style is actually quite inviting...if not from a personal point of view than from a marketing point of view.  I'm looking forward to a lighter board, preferably not a white board though. I've the seen the option to choose what board skin you prefer from a drop down list at certain torrent trackers. How hard would something like that be to implement here? I'm sure some people would be sad to see the black board go.
