Simple enough question - which forum look do you use?  WhiteGold or BlackGold? What would you like to see improved on the forums?

I use whitegold here to make it the distinguished cg/gt look.  I keep blackgold for OO because it's like GG.  Get it?

Blackgold for the GG nostalgia and also it's a little easier on my eyes.  whitegold is a bit too bright for me.

Whitegold. It looks better, reads easier, is more distinctive to CG/GT for me, and frankly I always thought the old GG look was just beyond tacky-thus no black gold for me.

Whitegold.  It's just been the look that has been synonymous with Console Gold/Gaming Trend, so I've stuck with it.

Black gold.  The dark screen with white text is easier on the eyes.

I don't even know what the hell you are talking about Ron!

Do I have some of beta version of the website or something?  Everything looks silver to me.

I normally use whitegold.

I would be happier with blackgold if there wasn't any gold in it. Make the "highlights" like the poll and sticky and the little symbols showing whehter a thread has new posts and all that a shade of blue that's easy to distinguish on the black background, or a bluish grey, or something.

I would definitely use the black scheme if it didn't clash terribly. As it is now, I'm not big on it because the orangey colors don't go with the rest of the website.

Edited to add an example.. I would totally use the black scheme if it looked like this:

BlackGold. WhiteGold is just too...white for my 'aging' eyes.

Why does this not surprise me?  I guess if you can't figure out passing in hockey you're not going to figure out a forums background.

Blackgold here.  White is OO for me.  Helps me know where I am easier; at my age I forget.

White (with no avatars) because it is easier to pass off as some technical article or forum so people here at work actually think I am working. slywink

I'd use ThinJGold if I could, to be honest.  That looks cool!

As we are currently working on a redesign of the site, we don't want to leave the forums out in the cold.  That's what this poll is for.

I can guarantee you that the design will be a lot more integrated with the new look and feel than this one is smile

I just figured it out!

It's in the Profile section.     nod

I switched to the BlackGold option cause it's not as bright.

Thanks for posting this poll.  I would have never known about this option.

WhiteGold.  It's just the way it's always been for me.  I am also surprised at how many are using BlackGold.

I hope there is an option for both so everybody can remain happy.

That makes two of us!  Both options will remain, as I see people's need for darker sites.  We may just opt for something like Thin_J_Black to get rid of the orange masquerading as gold. smile  I've never liked that color anyway.

Blackgold. Easier on eyes as been stated.

I DO like that Blue/Black scheme though!

Wow!  A real "go figure" moment for me!  :shock:

Whitegold all the way - for all the reasons people gave for Blackgold, lol... easier on my old eyes, less harsh, etc.  When I go to a black background site, I usually have to highlight the text to make it not hurt my eyes. frown

Hmmmm...
