The lack of me here is me fiddling with the css on firefox and then scraping it be because my creations look awful.
I think, around the posts especially, we need to keep cool calm colours so peachy shades and lime greens don't do it for me, while the blue does. Surprisingly the Tomgeeks forums also had blue around the posts, so maybe if we use a colour scheme with light blue, but also striking greens...?
I like the palettes Elcz put? I don't know, I'm horrible at palette building I just... tweak stuff till it works. And I can't get a site to look well at all, so I don't mind any palette as long as it's readeable (I'd like to point out that the only thing about the current default palette that really bothers me is the admins' yellow names... They are kinda impossible to read).
I'm sticking with this tan/turquoise on whatever this shade of green is that I made from Elcz's #7. It feels a bit treeish. I'm using pale test 2 as a base for the better blended rollover colors for now.
