v4. deprecated, old, useless stuff. Discard.

www4. the real thing. Currently the externals are being worked on (theme, colours, etc.), but the overall layout is complete as well as the rewritten backend.

Didn't know about v4. Just off-hand, that looks really keen.

Then again, I've been using www4 not because I like it better, but because they've told us it's what is going to be used, so I figured might as well get used to it now...

Not only is it way more functional, but the v4 look is soooo 90s. While im not the hugest fan of the whole puke green and grey thing either, www4 looks alot more modern IMO

I hear a lot of bitching about "puke green." Is it just the background that annoys you or is it other colors elsewhere?

Where SPECIFICALLY?

Well, I was talking specifically about the background gradient near the top of the page. Its not really your fault, green and grey are sort of an odd choice for a color scheme. www4 looks good enough, unless you are willing for a complete and drastic change.

Im a big fan of http://www.colorschemer.com/ for choosing web layouts, it takes the work out of the color theory. There is also free charts, like http://www.visibone.com/colorlab/big.html, which work great if you just start somewhere and go in a straight line.

Ok, so if we change the background, would that help?

Also, where is there gray? I don't any grey on the site except in the prefs section.

How can you not? It's the predominant color in OSNew's color scheme...
