Also I just noticed that posts with double quotes show up white on white.

Made some changes so the moderators can see the messages.
Let's see what else I've broken....

I find the green and blue much easier on the eyes than black and white :)

It also makes the forums look more a part of the site.

Actually I was thinking the white on black was a little harsh.
I was going to add a little blue or gray to the white to soften it slightly.

Only issue, at least on my computer, is that the "Quick Links" drop-down menu is almost impossible to read. Light green on white background.

Also, is there any way to fix the older forum threads so that all the posts appear? I've noticed that an older thread that shows 30 posts will have maybe 15 posts.

The search menu also has dark font on a dark background. I think its going to be a seek and destroy mission for a bit finding out where things are hard to read.

Do you think less neon-like colors and using more traditional colors might work? The neon blue and greens rub me the wrong way...

I actually love the color scheme. It's reminiscent of older web design, before everyone decided to make their websites black and white and streamline it as much as possible, and in the process, make it look very boring.

I preferred the previous color and font.

At least make sure that neon green isn't ever on a white background. The Quick links menu is almost unreadable.

The person who suggested this was a search and destroy mission was right, but I'm gradually getting this forum up to snuff. I think I fixed the drop downs and search screens. Let me know if I missed anything.

I also made the text blue-ish. It's the same hue as my reviews.
