    I've noticed this complaint is pretty common so I just made a thread about it.
    Example:
    Code:
    [16:43:22]  the new look is actually give me a headache, I'm not joking
    [16:43:32]  MY EYES MY EYES
    [16:43:37]  I had to close out
    [16:43:47]  *giving
    [16:43:53]  its not easy for my eyes too lol
    [16:43:57]  but possible
    [16:44:02]  It
    [16:44:03]  contrast between colours is shit
    [16:44:05]  too much clutter
    [16:44:05]

    I agree, it's pretty bright. I'd like smaller contrast, specifically a darker shade of white.

    Its not too bright, there's just too much empty white space. There must be a way to decrease it

    The whiteness of the theme is the problem.

    Agreed. A darker theme would be good.

    Anywhere you think of me.
    I second the motion that we need a darker theme. This bright new look is gonna make browsing in darkness/night quite troublesome.

    I don't want to be rude or a grammar cop (okay, yes I do), but since this may actually affect you in real life I'll correct you.

    It's notion, not motion.

    Good to see I'm not alone in thinking this new theme is too bright...

    Also agreed that a dark version (or even just a darker white version) is needed.

    EDIT: Just realized there was a typo...

    I wouldn't mind a darker theme too, but not due to my own complaints about brightness.
    It doesn't look much different to before, as far as I'm aware.



    Grammar cops have to be right.
    Motion is actually valid in this case.

    Bright? :\ I don't find it bright at all. I find it really good actually.

    I know, but notion is more correct!

    *Proceeds to slap Protokun's Time Machine*

    EDIT: Seriously though, I noticed it was right about 5 seconds after I posted. I guess I was both right and wrong, but when you mix the words they both come out sounding like each other, so I'll just go with wrong.

    It may not be. Well, not until there is more negative reception, that is.

    In other words, if you guys have something to say, say it. It can only do good.

    I think you guys just don't like change, the colour scheme has barely changed with this new skin.
