Just had a slight shock

put my old CRT monitor back on in place of the TFT, the color of these forums shows up as way different. TBH worse IMHO i would prefer a lighter shade of green as background as indeed it was showing on the TFT.

So what do people think about the colors now?

I don't like it much, I think it needs to be a warmer and slightly paler green

Not sure that warmer and paler isn't contradictory, but then I know b'all about color.

You should have seen the original colours on a CRT monitor. I'm using the laptop at the moment, and it looks much better than it does on the PC.

I've changed the Green text colour on the front page, I think that would probably work for the green text here as well. Could we try it as the darkest green in the logo fadeout to see what it looks like?
