    Being a vampire, I'm still using the old, dark Platform theme. The new one is too bright for my tastes.

    Hmmm... Wilfrey the Wilson says:
    WHERE ARE THE BEAUTIFUL PIXEL PENGUINS!? WHERE ARE THE MEMES AND HIDDEN DRY HUMOR, SUCH AS THE TWO GENDER NOVAKIDS SHOOTING EACH OTHER? WHERE IS THE JUSTICE IN THESE CRUEL FORUMS!? Okay, back to lurking through the muck of random posts to snatch up unsuspecting threads and engulf them in terror. Good day, Gentlemen/Ladies/Roos!

    AaahhH! Nooo!!
    Now I'll have to log in every time I want to browse the forums, because this is extremely painful.
    A lot of people seem very put off by the brightness (for obvious reasons) - perhaps when it is ready, make the dark theme the default? It just seems to make sense since more people like the dark than the BLINDED BY THE LIGHT!

    No really though, I'm sure lots of time went into this theme but I can't actually see any details it's so bright.

    Edit: OH, GLORIOUS DARKNESS OF THE GREAT EMPTY VOID, I CAN SEE AGAIN!
    This is so much nicer. I wonder what I'll think of the darkCF theme when it comes out...

    I happen to enjoy reading things off my computer without having to use sunglasses. Old theme is much better. also portrays the game better.

    ^ exactly, Starbound as a game has a spectrum of dark, enjoyable colours (even in bright planets) and having a white forum is a bit of uhh... a huge contrast that does justice to none

    Wayyy too bright for me. Sticking with original until the darker version comes out.

    I like the new layout, but not necessarily its colour scheme. Instead of being so bright, maybe it could be in different colour styles we could choose, such as this one, neon blue and black and a red theme.

    The new one looked nice but for some reason I can't quite explain I found it hard on the eyes. I don't usually have issues with mostly white pages since Facebook and Twitter are ok with me but this one was difficult for me to read.....again not exactly sure why. I think it had something to do with individual post borders not being distinct enough and blending with the background too much. So I had to revert it back to the old style. I hope you guys at CF take no offense, I still love all the amazing things you guys are doing with the game and very much look forward to 1.0 and beyond.

    I love it and all but damn it did nearly blind me when I went to check for any new notifications.

    (Edit) People say it is "too bright" Have you really never been told to not look at a screen with the lights off? I was raised on it so this doesn't bother me just caught me off guard.

    My issue is not brightness.......I am used to staring at 95% white pages.....it's the formatting that makes it hard to read.

    There should be a black text on even blacker background - everything must be black!

    I imagine myself waking up, then going on the forums and it is too 2bright4me



    so, old one
    for now

    I agree with that, and it sort of portrays the game's sci-fi feel. the new one just makes it feel like it is for a different game, in my opinion..

    Though the design may feel compact - the advantage is it also is a bit more mobile friendly when compared to the older theme.

    The new theme was as generic as a cheap message board.

    I changed it back to the old yet far superior theme immediately.
