I think the blue layout is very pleasing to the eye and goes better with the pictures at the top of the page. I also feel that the contrast between the background and the text will make it a bit smoother to read than the amber (although in that arena, it is tied with the green).

I have been wishing for you to change to the amber every time I see your pages since you teased us for a few days with the last switch. That was until now....

I may stop reading anything you write until you give us the blue pages!

Blue is sooooo awesome!

I don't know why you are waiting....

I think green makes me angry.

Further more, I think you like the blue too...

I don't care for the amber but I think I've told you that before.

I vote for the Blue.

Amber licks ass. Blue is the new green. How cool is that? Thanks for your vote!

Actually, I voted for the green.

But taking a second look, the blue does provide a nice background for all of your Air Force and other military material and of course the all awesome Union Jack. I know the avatars change, but after looking at the amber - I again decided the blue would definitely look best.

I'm not wishy-washy. I just had to take a moment to think. But that's me. A man has a right to change his mind, does he not?

If not, the world would be in serious peril.

I appreciate your input. And thanks for walking us through the decision-making process. I personally find it fascinating how your mind works.

I did like the amber and have recently found myself wishing that you would switch to it. That having been said, it was rough on the eyes. I'm a fan of blue. Just look at my blogs.

If you ever compare my gorgeously crafted site again with your basic point & click BACKGROUND="0000FF" I will stab you in your eyes!

I personally, like the green. It's a cross between the old school monochrome look and something out of The Matrix. Some of the blue blurs into the black and the amber is a little too bright for me.

I say stick with the green (but that's just my opinion).

And of course that's exactly what it was supposed to be. Old console WYSE terminal or something to that effect (you should have seen version 1.0!). Thanks so much for your input.

Ok you have not implimented the blue scheme I voted for. I do love the ble but why the voyager pic. The previously presented blue design was perfect and unified without being symmetrical. It was just perfect. I can only handle one change at a time. First the color, let that settle in, then if you must and only after a waiting period then experiment with changing the image design. Sheees! I would think this would go without saying...


Big, Big, HUGE fan of the blue BTW!

My domain? http://darkvoyager.com? Ring any bells? I'm working on integrating everything into a single site. It's going to be a lot of work. "Blue" was a part of that.

Big, Big, HUGE fan of the blue BTW!
Glad you like it!

Blue vs. green

I like the blue. :-D

Also like the green. It's your site Eric. Do what you want. :-D

I think I vote blue for a time. :-) And if you get tired of it, change it back! :-)

Me too!

I wasn't asking permission.

Excellent choice!

And if you get tired of it, change it back! :-)
Solid plan.

I can see the forward section of Voyager!!!!

It was there - then it was gone! I was using the background I'd created for my example, but it lost out, and now its back again.

Hint: Different resolutions will reveal more of the ship.

OK here is a question for you. Why can a smart guy like you not implement a scheme where you have three sites, one for each color, where the content is mirrored? I mean besides not caring... ;-)

Discuss...

I most certainly could! If I were running the server. There's nothing at all stopping me from installing my own blog on my server and having:

  1. amber.darkvoyager.com/blog

  2. blue.darkvoyager.com/blog

  3. green.darkvoyager.com/blog


But then that would destroy the sense of community I have on livejournal.
