Several people feel that We Universal is just too grey and Prosilver is just to cluttered. Below are 3 potential styles that we can add as options. I tried to pic options that are less cluttered then Prosilver and have more color then We Universal. I will be adding the top style, and if there is enough interest possibly to the top 2 styles as options. We will run this poll for 4 days and everyone can vote on 2 styles. There will be a separate thread to add a new dark style for saving phone battery life.

Not wild about CleanSilver. Proflat is so-so. Elegance is nice. How much choice do these styles offer as far as color is concerned?

Elegance offers 7 color variations. Proflat offers 18. CleanSilver just the one.

The main reason I included clean silver is it simplifies the screen the most. Putting most options into a single menu similar to more modern interfaces. I knew some people would like that. I'm pretty utilitarian, I like to have a screen full of one click options myself.

I started working on a bunch more How-Tos. I guess I'd better hold off until this is done. Will you be testing the new styles on devtest first?

They are there now. I had to make sure they worked with our extensions and that they all were mobile responsive. I will remove the one's we don't chose, but if you want to play around with one more they are there as options.

The style you have now is fine. In fact, I prefer it to any of the new options.

No style goes away. We are just adding more options for those who wish to use them. Every user can select their own style without effecting others.

I like Elegance, but I also like the current default We Universal just fine. I understand the appeal of Clean Silver, but I think it's too simple to be really appealing except to a small subset of users.

Either Proflat or Elegance seem to be good choices. A nod toward Proflat for being simpler layout for novices to view and perhaps navigate.

I find that interesting. They are nearly identical layouts, with slightly different looks. The only difference is that proflat adds Members and Team into the hamburger menu and elegance adds those two as a separate dropdown. Other then that everything is in the exact same place.

Matter of perspective I would say. I'm trying to look at this like a novice user and turning off the experienced or technical knowledgeable view point.
While they may be nearly identical layouts ,it's the slight difference in looks that may be easier for novice users to navigate at first glance that Proflat offers, in my opinion. . Of course, you know what they say about opinions. :D

Not saying you are wrong. It was just clear that you had meant things differently than they read to me. Thank you for clarifying.

I'm currently using Prosilver so Proflat looks good, but that or Elegance works for me.
Boils down to personal choice obviously.

Just out curiosity , how much impact will all this have when Tangle redesigns the site?

None. They are just giving people options until he's done.

There is not a finer, more exquisitely expressed piece of condensed melancholy anywhere, although Tom Waits "Waltzing Matilda" comes close...

I dunno. I've spent a lot of hours of minor depression soothed by Pink Floyd. Usually Wish You Were Here, but certain tracks of Dark Side of the Moon and The Wall equally apply.

Perhaps "melancholy" would be a better description.
