Dark heat looks soooooo much better... I don't see why we can't choose between both though.

The Dark Meat version would enable me to view more comfortably for longer periods of time.

Those sample pages were helpful in confirming my preference. Thanks for letting us put in our two cents worth before any changes are made.

I prefer the dark background. Lighter colored backgrounds hurt my eyes. White backgrounds are brutal.

Of those two examples I prefer the LIGHT background one.

I'm using the dark now, and love it, but on the new post, the dark is not as dark as the current dark and the text not as contrasting... It seems a bit fuzzy and the letters aren't well-defined. So if these are the options (and having the current dark is NOT an option) then I choose light.

I vote for dark. I have grown to really like the light text on dark. Adds to the ambiance of ats.

You guys are doing an overhaul? I just managed to figure my way around the site a little!

ugh.

perhaps you could rather ask members if they would like the option of both. i know you want to avoid giving them the option of both but at least members should be asked if they prefer the option of..

1. dark
2. light
3. all members having the ability to be able to choose between the two

as was mentioned in the other thread - www.abovetopsecret.com... some members have problems with light text on black backgrounds and participating members should be aware of this before answering a rigged question, where most but not all people will choose dark.

i would like the option of light, not 'just' light

I find the dark easier to read.......too much light makes my macular degeneration go nuts!

Please, leave it as an option for those of us who need it!!

Dark, definitely... It is soooo much easier on my eyes.

I would like the dark meat.

Because many read ATS very late at night, and the darker the screen the less light will fill our rooms when others are trying to sleep.

edit to add I am being a hypocrite with my bright avatar image, I need to go darker.

Well I use the dark option myself, and I am down with the lorem ipsum but I see that you have been reading what I and others had to say...and that your preferences are set on Mountain Time.


Heck, I am just happy to be the poster boy for light/dark samples.

"There is no one who loves pain itself, who seeks after it and wants to have it, simply because it is pain..."

Interesting

That may be due to SO's personal screen setting for the screen capture or a result of the jpeg formatting and artifacts from the compression.

While there are many good reasons (most from your optometrist) to display light-gray text on a dark-gray background for text-heavy content on a computer screen, the fact remains that our eyes/brain have been trained since soon-after birth to recognize black text on white (or near-white) paper.


While that may be true, a computer monitor is light based (additive color) and a sheet of paper is not light based (subtractive color), it's reflection based, so it's completely different. If that doesn't make any sense, the bottom of this link explains the difference between additive colors and subtractive colors: www.uwgb.edu...

So when you add all the colors up on a paper-based media, you get black, the usual color of text. When you add all the colors up on a monitor, you get white, the color of text on ATS with a dark background. So in both media, white paper with black text, and a monitor with white text on a dark background, the text is the addition of the colors in both cases, so dark meat on ATS is more consistent with white paper in my view than it might appear. And it's definitely easier to read on a monitor.

Dark meat is the best option!

Although A.T.S to me is compulsive reading I do often leave the site with a slight sense of despair due to all the doom and gloom e.c.t that is posted so I'd like to see a lighter visual style to help balance things out a bit.

I suppose a "buffet" is out of the question right?

Okay, it depends on the PURPOSE for the change.

Dark meat is certainly easier on the eyes; but, the light meat is psychologically CLEANER.

Light meat is more optimistic and welcoming.

Dark meat more like a smoke-filled, dark, dank, backroom.
