    Re: Direction of the new theme: Glow Red

    I'm by far more taken with Idea 1 than Idea 2. Regardless, I'll probably be keeping to the Silent Blue theme as blue on white/grey is more pleasant to me personally than red on black/grey.

    Still, between the two, the first one feels better for me than the second.

    I could see something like #4e4e64 working as a color for the post body and possibly other parts of the menu.

    I like option 2 more. always liked being able to see beacon's background pic

    I get that the background image for the variation of idea 2 is probably dota related, but the red to black circular gradient is really coolio. Also I totally think having the banner centered would be nice too, like the variation. Some logo with transparency to place on top of the background.

    Idea 1 is a little too bright for my eyes >~<

    Idea 2 variation sounds err would look good with a dash of gray; black and white have greatly differing contrasts would add to eyestrain~

    Hmm maybe make the red a dash more transparent or a little melower~ish... I can't put my finger on it but it's a little too red for me~

    This. I'm using Silent Blue theme mainly because I really hate reading stuff on plain white. If you want to remove the current dark theme and put this one with white body, plz consider a third option with this theme and a grey/dark grey body at least.

    Re: Direction of the new theme: Glow Red

    I think that the 2nd draft looks the best actually. Could it be possible to darken the categories window to keep writing in luminous and bright coulours ? Actually, drafts are still too much divided into dark and bright colours (only personnal thought). In comparison of the actual theme, where only writing are kept dark, our eyes don't need to search where is the information to read.

    In comparison of your drafts where we actually are actually attracted by the categories windows colours first, then have to search the informations in secondly.

    Not sure if you understand my point of view, I don't find the right words to explain it..

    Re: Direction of the new theme: Glow Red

    If I am forced to pick between idea 1 and 2, I would pick idea 2.
    But as some users have mentioned above, Is there a way to make the theme as dark as Beacon?
    In the screenshots there are a lot of light grey and grey that has pretty high contrast.
    I'm no graphics designer but when I'm programming at work (which is pretty much roughly half of the time I spend in the forum), pretty much all my terminals and text editors are all black background.
    Beacon is easy for my eye because there's less brightness/contrast switch between my work windows and the forum.

    It'll be interesting to add a third option in the forum in the lines of 'make it darker than idea 1/2', but if you guys think it's too much work or are unable to make the colors play well with each other, forget what I said.

    Re: Direction of the new theme: Glow Red

    Since the choice are between those 2, I prefer number 2 since from the way I see it the first choice isn't giving much difference than the current Silent Blue theme

    Also I like @laser's color idea for the main body color since it's not too bright, nor dark and both white and black colored text still can be read easily

    Re: Direction of the new theme: Glow Red

    I personally prefer the style of the second draft. However, as others have already stated, it still looks rather bright. A more muted red in the headings, and a light/medium grey in the body might be easier on the eyes. Currently, there is just too much of a contrast between the background and the foreground.

    Either way though, both drafts appear to be heading in the right direction. Thank you all for your hard work.

    @Saya
    idea 2 look far more better than idea 1

    but background color of category title (9e0000) is quite strong

    i think 9f1f1f is better
