    I love the new background, and I prefer the all lowercase with the "u". The whole site is much easier on the eyes. A++ WOULD VISIT AGAIN.

    The white background was pretty glaring. We are working on options there - I may set up an "old SF" theme that you could switch to. Maybe.
    How about all blue? I find the white/blue contrast a little distracting.

    What white? On the post space? Even that's a light blue. I don't want to make the place too dim though.

    Bring the "v" back.

    I'm not sure what I think about this new look. One thing I know, though, is I miss the v in styleforvm. Please bring it back.

    No kidding. I miss StyleForvm.

    Curious to hear about the v or u thing. I personally preferred the u. What's the consensus with you guys?
    We spent 2000 years developing that letter and you tried to drag us back. Never again.

    Now that you mentioned it, it does look blue when I tilt my laptop screen back a little. I suppose I'll get used to the new look in no time. I just wish there wasn't such a big contrast between the different colors on the screen.

    The current color scheme is rather low contrast. It is perhaps just a tiny bit too dim, but I think j struck a good balance.

    The blue's easier on the eyes. Wish I could say the same about the "u". And here I thought J was trying to bring class back to this place...

    I too like the new look, and the "u". Never did really care for the "v" myself. Nice work!!!
