    Looks very slick indeed. Personally i would like to see some more of the blue incorporated into the actual forum structure but thats just my personal opinion1

    I agree with glenplake, looking very slick but incorporated some more blue is always liked by the human eye

    *Going into strict mode*

    This is not a review forum, so please stick to the question asked and state only whether or not the colour appears too dark on your monitor. If members expand on that and begin to post general comments about the site's design, this will be moved to the Website Reviews forum where phatronic will then be subject to the 3-1 review rule.

    Colors work fine on my monitor. It's a PC but a fairly bright monitor. It's worth mentioning that I'm older and have a harder time with dark color schemes than some of the younger people. For some reason they do get harder to read and view with middle-aged eyes but have no problems with your forum.

    Yup looks PHAT indeed!

    Exactly in my color palette, would definitely enjoy a little more blue but I think it's a pretty good color combination.

    My video card is a Radeon All-In-Wonder 32M Ram viewed on a 21" nokia screen.

    Keep it up!

    It looks good, but it does come across as a bit too dark to me. I also agree with glenplake about more blue. Maybe try lighter shades of blue-grey in the sections with #666666 and #CCCCCC. Also maybe consider lighter text against the darker background and vice versa. Love the colors you used though.
