    Woh, all of a sudden turquoise is making a strong show against purple! The race is on...

    Just noticed that - We may have to have a blend of turq & Purp

    I voted for the red as for me it was the easiest to read. Purple and variations there of is my favorite color, but I found that option hard to read. Not enough contrast in the text portions. I like a dark font on a light background; it's just easier for me to read.

    The purple is beautiful; but, the color contrast is low and will be hard to read by more mature forum members and lurkers, as well as much harder to read on small screen mobile devices and devices outside. (I work in a field related to these concerns. There are more and more people using mobile devices, reading the forum in bright sunlight, and many wonderful dancers with greater wisdom who should not feel excluded by a design decision.)

    The darker blue ("shiny") and turquoise are easier to read. The red is just similar enough to what is already here to be meh.

    Of them all, I like the turquoise for readability, accessibility, and aesthetics.

    My 2c.

    This is not easy! I ended up voting for both the purple and the turqoise... No particular reason...

    Ack, I much prefer the current format. The new ones look so cluttered.

    Hate the purple. I voted for blue, but the turquoise would be okay. Didn't care for the red.

    Well... given the choice I would keep our current skin.

    I already voted though.

    I think I would like upgrade to vb 4. It will have multi quote and a bunch of other updated user end functions that people in the community have asked for.

    Since I will be doing that, it is an optimal time to make a visual change. We've had this skin forever. Though for those of you who were here in the very beginning, like 2003, know that there have been a bunch of different skins over the years... I feel like it's time for a new look. And I don't think the current design will even work for vb4...

    Ultimately, what I would like to do is another custom skin but it is about 500 bucks outside of budget.
