Please keep the site grey, setting grey as the global default would be GREAT.

While this may take some getting used to, I find this design really cool, if you know what I mean.

++2, I wrote a long reason as to why, when I wanted to scroll down and focus outside the flash; then I wanted to scroll down to click the Post button, but instead got redirected to Cathode Raybots instead. And my browser lost the original reply.

Well, it's nice to have a different layout once a while.

I kinda like the oldschool calming effect.

Wish it were an option.

The gray is too green in some places. I think it should be completely achromatic or more icy blue colored like this boss text field for replies.

I'm digging the grey. For the reason you pointed out, it makes the rest of the content pop. It looks clean, metallic and gives me a feeling that I must create. It doesn't try to push me in a direction, it lets me float around effortlessly. Less work for the eyes, and leaves more room for appreciation of the content.

...Okay, I've been looking at it for an extended period now, and I admit the gray theme is kind of growing on me. That said, Scintillating has a point; it could use a slight nudge toward the blue end of the spectrum. Right now it kind of clashes with the gold and amber colored accents.

It is nice, i like the grey tones. I believe the little colour that the Portal buttons give and the background make for a nice contrast too.

If you aren't a supporter (or a supporter who isn't logged in), you may have noticed some pages on the site (ie game pages) are using a grey layout like the store. Do you prefer the site this way? Been pondering stripping the colors out of the page elements and just going with grey - it seems to make the content pop. During the redesign, Wade used to complain that the front page looked like someone took a shit on it and Rob used to say we should style the entire site with the store colorscheme... Were they right? Is it time for a change?

Tom! Are you that bored?, do we need to remind you on an old very informative flash cartoon, what would stamper say to this whole change.

    Tom n' Stamper hammer out the details of the redesign. Stamper is skeptical.

Hey Tom, I'm on Verizon (not FiOS) and am beginning to have problems. Not just with viewing movies and games, but slowness across the entire site. May need to bite the bullet and go back to Comcast, but that's to you.
