Inquiring minds want to know, which skin is your favorite---the red, pink or default? Hopefully everyone can vote this time.

And worked just fine, thanks.

This red is making me break out my old fart glasses! The red against the grey makes it hard to read.

Sadly, piggy is the only one I can read consistently.
Red, too often, has black on black. Default has light grey on dark white.

Holy crap....Red and black were bad enough but I want to know who chose "Hello Kitty pink"? Ugh, default for me.

I went red. Default is a little to bland for me. The Pink? No thank you...

The default is the least painful, but I'd have to say none of the above.

I'm voting for the default. The red & black is just too much of a contrast.

I'd prefer a skin like this one: http://www.completevb.com/demovb4/forum.php?styleid=82

But they want $40 for no branding for one year. So it's a bit of a ripoff.

agree. I voted for default...against my better judgement, but there has got to be other choices.

Unfortunately, none of these options are easy for me to read for anything longer than a couple minutes at a time. I select the "none of the above" option.

Sorry. :apologetic:

I have no problem AT ALL with the hot pink. Easy to ready, dark back ground, pops of hot pink. What's not to like?

Posting backgrounds are bright white, as is the "default" skin. Could get used to them, however, if I put on my sunglasses :lemo:

In reality ... it doesn't matter to me what we go with. Gave my preference for skin as asked ... chose RED but will go with whatever we get!

At the moment, default is winning! Rats! Had better keep a pair of sunglasses on my desk! Oh well!

Agreed - out of line on price but better contrast and readability than any of these three.

Don't worry, the red and pink aren't going away. After all the complaining about the brightness of the default (necessary when the software upgrade was made as the old version would no longer be supported), SR and others searched for a different skin. SR paid for the red; Rock graciously paid for the pink, which is easier for him to read when at work outside.

I guess if anyone else finds something that's appreciably better, they might want to donate it. We can build a library of skins, which admittedly isn't the norm on political discussion boards, but we truly were just trying to make it better. Sorry, we were trying.

Wow!

No need for apology SLW!!!

Don't even think of it! You two have worked hard enough, have you not?

We will all survive no matter the skin.

(now will get back to reading SPYDER's "Journal" story ... watching Greta ... and checking in on the "Skins Poll" all at the same time! Ha! Ha! Good thing I am pretty good at multi-tasking!)

No need to apologize SLW, you can't make everyone happy....I have a staff of 35 direct reports, not including about another 30 that I oversee, and they will ALWAYS point out an unintentional error that I make, or whine about a decision that I make. I learned years ago that you just do your best..and screw everyone else.:smile-new:

I say that with love.:love_heart::love_heart:

The smileys on the other hand...they suck. The green biggrin guy is gone and has been replaced by this ---> :biggrin-new:

I don't know what the hell that is, but I ain't feeling it. He looks like he has issues.

They weren't blending well with the background on the Red skin.

However, that really sounds like a red skin people problem. Bring back green biggrin.

They had sort of a white fringe like they had been cut out, we'll have to find some better quality ones.
