White style
Its easiest to read black text on white (or nearly white) background... And the colour problems (as long as they are not very light) may be solved too...
So I'll be suggesting a white style for TSG..

Not for everyone. I have no objection to having a while style available for those who want it so of course I'll vote yes but I prefer something softer on the eyes. It's all a matter of preference. The important thing is there's something that works for all or most, because you can never please everyone.

I believe (and will verify via the database) that very few people use the Khaki style. Originally, that was a white style, but it got changed to be softer on the eyes. I think that in the new version of TSG, we'll start with a Blue theme (very similar to what we have now as default) and then quickly add a Dark and White theme (dropping Khaki).

I disagree. You know what, I am using specs and FULL WHITE COLOUR makes a pain in my eyes.

You'll always have a choice, my friend...
Addition of a white style does not mean elimination of all other styles.

I hope you can have Grey Night or something very similar. I love it!

FYI, we will soon be changing the Khaki style to be the White style. There are 6 users who use the Khaki style so I will be putting a warning up for them. I am open to any input on what the White style should look like... other than obviously having a white or light gray (rather than light blue) background.

Ahhh, but I'm one of those 6 and the other choices look really bad to me, never liked the blue or black; both are way too dark. The Khaki is very easy on the eyes, if the light gray was similar I'd be OK with that.

Unfortunately, the thread starter is no longer available in TSG to see the change, and I got no communication media to inform him too

Looks like it's time to get used to a different style.
