    Hey all, I know the dark design isn't completed but I have noticed one things that is bugging me to no end. That is the portal. The front/home page if you will http://gbatemp.net

    This is how it looks, using the dark design
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    What really bothers me is all the grey on the sides and inbetween the 'headlines'. Some of it is alright but overall, there is too much of a difference between the black and the grey. Ofcourse this is just my opinion but I would greatly appreciate it if there wasn't such a contrast difference.

    When viewing a thread, it looks absolutely incredible though. Would anyone consider making the portal more like the view of a thread?

    I changed some paddings yesterday, but other than that.
    Must be a side-effect.


    Also, people actually use the dark version? :blink:

    I used if for a little bit, but becuase of the unfinishedness, i thought it looked horrible.

    I think that the dark design needs a few more changes. Would like to see a really light grey background with a dark version of the GBAtemp logo! Infact, I might PM the admin about a few more changes that may be needed, like different GIFs for the dark design!

    Don't bother because they won't reply.

    Also the dark version is only a CSS change, nothing else.

    I'm still using the dark design (have been using it since it was first introduced) and the only major complaint I have is that some sections of the site, like ASK GBAtemp are still in white, but with grey sidebars and it looks absolutely horrible.

    I use the dark theme as well.

    News feed looks nice now, solid black.
