Trying out a new theme: No. 2

This one has a similar look to the first one. It has a certain simplicity about it which I like enough to make it one of the finalists here. What do you think?

UPDATE (10:46 AM): I’m starting to like the feel of this format, so I’m going to start implementing some features that work in this format. Be watching the sidebar through the afternoon before rendering a final verdict.

EDIT (12:31 PM): I’ve put in all the features I can think of. Now what do you think?

  1. Um, uh, this is like going to the eye doctor and having them try different lenses that look almost the same! This one is a little cleaner, presentation-wise.

  2. Don’t worry – #3 will be quite different. If I find a #4 and #5, they will also be different.

  3. I like yesterday’s better!

  4. :shakes head:

    No doubt, but I think there’s no way I’ll come up with a theme that even 50% prefer to the others. I guess I’ll just have to go with a plurality.

  5. Thumbs down on this one too.

  6. between the 2; #1 gets my vote

  7. Daniel, is there a way to show not only the date the thread was created; but a date of the last post within that thread?

    Also, the date of the post must be set for eastern time; ’cause the one that says 10:06 (there is no am or pm); it’s really 9:06am.

  8. Yolanda, I’m not sure as to your first question. I do know that you can access the latest comments here:

    As to your second question, I guess all times on this blog show Eastern time since I’m in EST. I believe that is a general blog issue, nothing theme-specific.

  9. Is there any way that the stuff you wanna read isnt halfway down the page? Other than that, I like this one too and can’t wait to see the others.

  10. I’m not completely certain I understand what you’re talking about, Aaron. ❓

  11. I definitely prefer yesterday’s as well.

  12. I’ve put in all the features I can think of. Now what do you think?

  13. Still not as good as the green version…..

  14. Well, I didn’t see theme #1, but I really do like the green one you had before better than this one…the format seemed a little cleaner and easier to read. Just my two cents. (Sorry, I know it’s frustrating trying to find the perfect template!)

  15. Sorry, I’m still liking that green one! I prefer primary type colors (or dark colors) over pastels for web reading myself.

  16. I liked the green, too.

  17. I vote for #1 so far…

    This one is too stale.

  18. I liked yesterday’s better myself!

  19. I agree w/ Hannah Michelle on why I like the green one better, the format seemed a little cleaner and easier to read.
