The non-gaming part of the forum has a white background and the games part of the forum has a black background. Now we are looking for a bit of feedback on which you prefer.

Please vote once only, which is your preference, Black or White background to the forums?

Awesome :) Think it does look better!

I think an icon was needed as sometimes the stickies get hard to distinguish between the normal threads.

Ditto.

Although I still don't like the black background, I think I'm getting old, it just messes with my eyes and I cant look at it for long. :(

I'll second that - picture is a bit....meh and although the white background looks tidy, I do like the black.

I hacve to say it struck me when I saw it. Myself, I don't like the picture/icon...but not enough that it bothers me. An icon of a pin or a lump of blu-tak would be better :p

And after using the new site for a while, I still prefer the black background!

I think Shadowdream quoted you and then he said "and this" and then I only copied it partially just to add to the confusion.

Anyway, I think it's all straightened out now.
