The background is way to dark for me,can't see.
I'm currently working on refining the color scheme choices down to two selections (2 were intended from the beginning)... one will be optimized for the dark background and light text, the other for lighter backgrounds and darker/black text.
The default will be for the dark backgrounds, with obvious options to alter your settings, and even guests will be able to select their desired option.
-panes' are far too dark for the lighter settings, reverse the text and brighten the background.

Tell me how this 0000EE blue works as font-color at different settings at different monitors.

This new website layout is an effing mess. There's no other way to describe it. It's unreadable. The fonts and font sizes are messed up. The website leaves about 5 inches of blank grey space on the far right side. You have insane colour choices of black text on a dark grey background - or occasionally a bright red on the grey which looks downright nasty and makes one's eyes bleed. The white on the grey is horrible too. Your eyes have to be like less than a foot away from the screen to be able to read any of it. Say goodbye to leisurely reading pages of brilliant research, if the layout continues to look like this, then I will simply not read it anymore. Even a one-liner is an uphill task to cast eyes upon, let alone try and read something worthy of one's time. With a site like this, it's important that the information is presented as clearly as possible - ideally, bold black text on a white background, with colour via user avatars. This new look, while "cool" and "uber" and "L33T" or whatever these so-called high contrast labels are spun, is just not working.
Here's a screenshot from my pc. Windows Vista, 1920x1200 native resolution on my Dell 24" widescreen, Opera 9.02:
It's simply ugly. Unworkable. Look at that big black ugly bold heading at the top. The blank grey space on the right. The lack of contrast, despite the "high contrast" intent. Good Gawd.

I agree... Also, the dark - darker - ligheter whatever has NO EFFECT as far as I can teel. Still too dark. Don't mean to be dissing the designers, but you really should read up on colour combinations!
