    Default New Look

    I found the print and background that has changed color is tireing on my old eyes.

    Will we have an option to choose between themes?
    This one's too hard on my eyes.

    >>I like the new look, but then again I mix chocolate with my honey...call me crazy

    I also add some peanut butter and call it 'quickie fudge' - guess that makes me crazy also.

    The new look is nice.

    The dull tone is kinda, well, dull. I like the yellow though.

    Why the change? The old scheme looked fine to me.

    Not that I'm against change. Ha, ha.

    The blue was a color I'm not using in the site. It really didn't go well with the new beesource colors.

    Barry, you might want to go to this website, take the vision test and then see what they have to say about the color yellow/orange/gold. It's interesting.

    Thing is, I made this test in Illustrator and used all different colors in the first box. All colors had the same result when you look at the dot on a white background. It's not just yellow. Sorry.

    I find this scheme less harsh than the previous one. Everyone is different I guess.

    I like colors. This site is drab. It is about as visual exciting as a battleship-gray warship.

    Bees and their nectar sources are all colorful. Why not reflect these colors on Beesource.

    Here is a forum that appears to use the same software as Beesource. IMO it is much more visually attractive with it's earth tones.

    By the way, San Miguel is a great, inexpensive place to visit.

    Default my 2 cents

    I like the logo change and yellow color bar, but the white background is hard on my eyes. I find my self squinting because of the "brightness" and then turning my monitor contrast way down. Just need to remember to turn it back up when I'm thru for the other family members that use the computer after me.
