With the wonderful addition of new forum skins, I wanted to know what people used for this skins, so I decided to make a poll. (I like collecting unofficial data, I guess.) So pick your favorite skin for both the archives and the forums, and comment below why!

As for me, I use Fruity for the archives, because I like the green, and I use Burning Bright for the forums because I like reading black text on white (and also because the orange/black color scheme is so cool).

I use Night Sky and Dark Ember. I prefer the light on dark as it's easier to look at. It's also sort of a dyslexia thing? For me, at least, I find it easier to read things on a non white/light background. Mixing up words is a bit less frequent with a darker background haha. ^_^ Other than that, I love the orange and black color scheme so much too. It's sooo good.

On the archives, I use Sommerbrise. It really takes advantage of the widescreen view, which can be a little annoying sometimes :P But the colour scheme is just wonderful. The colours are so bright and fun, yet soothing at the same time. I sometimes just open the archives to look at those colours.

On the forums, I'm using Burning Bright. I tried Dark Ember and was surprised to learn that I find white on black writing incredibly annoying. I'm really enjoying this particular shade of orange, too. It's not too much at all, which I was worried about when the theme was first released.

I've always had Night Sky enabled on the archives, and it looks weird to me to change it to anything else.  As for the forums, at first I thought I liked Burning Bright a little better, but after one full day of Dark Ember, I'm hooked.

My favorite things about the new skins:

  1. The ticker tape!
  2. How lovely our icon stands out at the top!
  3. Clicking on the icon to get back to the hope page!
  4. The flash of orange as you hover over each subforum!
  5. And my absolute favorite part is how amazingly colorful the usernames look at the bottom of the page against the dark background!!

For the archives, I love to switch it up between Night Sky, Sommerbrise, and Fruity varying on the mood  or if I'm on my phone or desktop in all honesty.  I feel that Night Sky is really easy on the eyes for me so I'll definitely be using that for whenever I read fanfictions especially on the desktop as it's harder for me to focus on reading on the desktop at times as opposed to my own phone.  I will say that I ended up choosing Night Sky because of those reasons but I feel Sommerbrise and Fruity has really nice color schemes. Autumn days as well since I love the colors green and orange as well although the latter is my favorite color.  I do love how the Fruity theme even has a picture of kiwi or some kind of lime in the water too or at least seems like a stock photo or something as I can't really tell. I feel that one has the picture on it which looks fitting for the themes in the archive.

On the forums, I really like Dark Ember since I love orange and black since it's not two colors that goes well together but also it's personally easy on the eyes for me. I also love how the orange contrasts with the black since it's very bright colors when clicking and or hovering on the buttons which is set against the dark background.  I like the Burning Bright too since orange and white looks good even though I don't use it as much in all honesty.

i use night sky on the archives and dark ember on the forums because i'm such a dark person :P

just kidding! i just find it easier on my eyes than the bright background so i almost always use a darker theme where possible (or at least one that's not too white/bright)

I use Night Sky on the archives. I find that reading light text on a dark background is easier on my eyes for longer pieces. For the forums, I use Burning Bright. I thought I would like Dark Ember, but there wasn't enough contrast between the text and the background for my liking. (Maybe it's just my screen? Idk.) The forums require less extensive reading than the archives, though, so I don't mind the using brighter background here. :)
