You may have noticed the site change to be a blue version of this stye as default. I retracted the change a little bit ago as I just wanted to see if I could get a feel for it. However that was not the case. Green is going to stick. I just wanted to see if I could appreciate blue as being better. In my humble opinion green has already given this site it's feel so it will remain.

As for the logo I've decided on keeping the green color logo across all colors and light or dark styles instead of making it the color of the theme. This is so that users can see our logo and know what it is without any confusion. Light bulbs are popular but only a green light bulb can stand out as our logo :p

The blue theme is great and so far my favorite, just because it looks nicer in my head not really gonna argue with the identity of the site :p

This xenforo thingy is kinda cool.. i still miss those IPB back in the late 00's. 2.x.x and stuff were THE best forum engine ever.

Thank you Laifot I'm currently working on some more touch-ups for the site. I will be doing this work on Mind Piff Light Orange before making it span across the entirety of the styles. Have already set up the dark style forum areas to look much nicer. The gradient needed some touch ups as well as the box-shadow. Also I believe the post area padding could use some more embossing. I think you catch my drift.

Anyone who uses the dark styles or light orange may notice small changes. Will have it done tonight and I'll update my touch-up thread with details. May possibly make a better breadcrumb too.

I thought it was supposed to be like that but nope so I will fix that as well and I also need to update the post editor boxes to be dark as well from the software update (still not 2.1 yet but will soon). Thanks

You may notice slight changes possibly. I'm working on the dark themes still only slightly. Just made it look cleaner last night and finishing up some touches. Anyways I plan to do the same on the light style soon i'll be editing the orange until its ready then move it to all the colors that way it's a clean transfer. Nagato seems to be the only one so far I know of that uses the light orange. Anyways just getting us ready. Once we get a lot of people this would be done on my local install first. :p

The dark theme could be a little bit more darker to make full contrast with the font, imo :p
I don't want to go too dark because then people can't read it. Anyway the styles are finished being touched up. Let me know how you like it in the UI update thread. Also I'd like to add the online indicator is supposed to be that way as I've come to find out.
