    I use GBAtemp v3 the most, as should most people, it's the default and it looks the nicest IMO

    v3 is FTW.

    We need a Dark Colored GBAtemp theme. Maybe like a Midnight Blue, or Red, mixed in with Black. [​IMG]

    I use Lite mostly but v3 a lot still since it has options Lite doesn't have.

    I would like a skin where the background and the text in the message area is basically inverted. It would make it easier on the eyes after hours of reading and posting. Maybe make the background behind the posted messages the shade of blue that V3 uses, and make the default text color maybe a light-gray or something like that. The bright white of this message area gives me a headache after awhile.

    I use V3 currently.

    I use V3. I used to use the old ones, but then I just switched to V3 and never switched back.

    It's actually better to use white on black for computers since the light will "bleed out" light-to-dark instead of "bleed in", however most people are used to the black-on-white of normal paper and writing since ink, unlike light, has different properties and bleeds out dark-to-light and other such things I CBA to get into and damn this is going to turn run-on if I keep talking.

    Because of this thread I've considered making a simple inverted skin for the forum, but there's some issues.

    1 - It'd be a simple design, I prefer clean lines and such. Some people like flashy stuff as it signifies being new instead.

    2 - Idunno' if the admins would accept and add it.

    3 - I've never made a forum skin before so while I'm learning which graphics are used for what and where for this forum system somebody else that knows might make another one in the meantime and it might not fit the goals of mine so I'd be disappointed.

    4 - The problem of text colors. While switching the default text color to off-white to make it show up on a dark background is simple, that brings problems for user-set colors. If there's a way to make all colors show their inverse that would seem to solve it, but then there's hue issues (the eye picks up more shades of green than any other color, for example) and the fact that people would have to make orange text for it to show up blue, since AFAIK setting a timestamp cutoff for the inversion is not anything a current forum system has implemented since a useful situation for it is so incredibly rare.

    If all the features of the forum were available on all the skins I'd use classic or lite.
    As it is, I'm forced to stick with v3.
