I started to get attached to the 'lifein19x19' forum style. For those that are unaware, you can set this style when you're logged in by going to:

Code:
User Control Panel --> Board Preferences --> My Board Style


By default when you're not logged in, the forum uses 'subsilver2' style, which is the blue/grey theme. The 'lifein19x19' one has a "yellower" tone. If the 'lifein19x19' style is more popular, I was thinking of changing the default, but I don't want to do this unless it's something that people want.

Currently, around 1~2% of users use the 'lifein19x19' theme, but it's not clear to me if it's due to lack of preference, or if people just don't know that it exists.

What do you think?

Hi Kirby,

Thanks for asking.

I didn't know about this preference until your poll,
so I switched to the desert sand to take a look,
and I like subsilver2 much better --
the blue-grey is much easier on the eye for me;
I find the desert sand 'loud' and the textured wallpaper distracting.

I prefer the clean, minimalist, and simple-and-good subsilver2.

( If there's a nice 'forest green-grey' theme, I might like it even more than subsilver2. :) )

You can actually create custom styles, so that's also a possibility.

I also prefer the clean subsilver2.

When I first created this account I set the style to lifein19x19 but changed it back relatively quickly due to the noisiness of the design and more importantly a noticable increase in loading times.

But when it comes to design I also prefer the 'outdated' KGS client over 'modern-and-slick' OGS, so what do I know. :D

I liked the lifein19x19 style, but switched back because the like this post button doesn't exist in that style.

Tried it, but switched back because it doesn't work properly on Android phone.
