I don't think we should change the colour to blue. There are other writing sites that use blue, TW included. Blue is cold and a very common colour. Maybe we could use some warm colours? A nice orange or red, sun-setty colours but light so they aren't hard on the eyes. Also if we had a darker blue background and someone has a blue sig then you can't read it very well.

What about red (not pink). A lot of things on this site are already rad (look around the main page). Perhaps we could go for a gray theme with red headings?

I think that might be a little jarring, but it couldn't hurt to try

I'm quite liking the Sunset theme. Sounds quite interesting. But i agree, not pink, that would possibly make it a little ... OTT..?

Hrmm, I have problems with diverging too much with the way the site looks now...if we change the colors too much we have to do a new logo and everything...I like blues, darker blues, silver-blues, etc., because it doesn't diverge too far, but brightens things. I think purple and pink and red would really hurt the feel of the site. We don't want it feeling hippy-ish...

I just think blue is much too cliché. I would rather see a dark shade of reds and purples but again, its up to the higher ups.

It's up to you guys as much as it is up to us (the Admins). If people don't like something we'll change it. We're not a complete dictatorship here . You guys do have a say, I just might not personally agree with it .
