I use the white Giantbomb site but it seems from screencaps people post they use the black one. Am I the minority here or do a lot of other people use the white site?

Your right. I'm so sorry for wasting everyone's time. I just thought I'd make a fun topic to take people's minds of the whole subbing thing. I apologize to all the users who saw this topic, the bandwidth it took up, and too you Ryax. Please don't make this topic damper our friendship.

I always use the dark pallets on sites if possible, feel like my eyes are strained otherwise.

#3 Posted by ComradeKritstov (693 posts) -

Yes you are weird. I use the black version because it's easier on the eyes.

#4 Posted by MrCandleguy (822 posts) -

I prefer the black one, but I know ur not the only one, I do think most people use black
Why would you use white anyway?

#5 Posted by Buscemi (1106 posts) -

I use the exclusive premium member rainbow-version because I'm just that fabulous.

#6 Posted by Popogeejo (601 posts) -

THAT'S RACIST!

#7 Posted by natetodamax (19169 posts) -

I kinda use it on and off. In fact, I would probably be using it right now if I didn't have a headache.

#8 Posted by RedEyesBlueBunny (1011 posts) -

Click your name and next to the facebook login you have the option to change the colour.

@Hector: 
 
click your name in the right corner box and it has little boxes on the bottom with F's in them, click the white one.
 
I use the white ofc, I hate dark websites.
#13 Posted by TayIor (25 posts) -

I didn't even know I had the option between a white and black layout. I wouldn't use it anyways, I always go with the darker option whenever given.

#14 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19305 posts) -

I'm using the white one right now.  Don't know if I prefer it to the black one.

#15 Posted by Rockanomics (1150 posts) -

Yes, you are weird.

#16 Posted by animateria (3252 posts) -

Even the site is white!

#17 Posted by Ghil (229 posts) -

no you're not, I use it most of the time :)

#18 Posted by EVHKwick (452 posts) -

If they'd change the header color from black and red to something different, I'd consider using it. 
 
Otherwise, the off-white underneath the black and red is simply madness.

@RE_Player92: Yeah you ARE weird. We don't like your kind 'round here, WHITEY!
#21 Posted by Warchief (650 posts) -

I know you guys are kidding, but man, the badges under the profile pictures turn users into pretentious assholes.

Don't be so insecure.  No one thinks they're better than anyone. At least not me. 

And white/yellow text on black is easier on the eyes.

Please don't think of me as one of those type of people. I was doing it for comedic effect. I don't care about badges and what not, every user is equal. I'm just trying to make fun of all these subscription topics that have been popping up or people thinking they are cool for subbing/not subbing. The worst is the people that have fake badges in their pictures... seriously who cares. Again it comes to my rule about religion, you can practice whatever you want just don't preach it to me. 
#25 Posted by kmdrkul (3476 posts) -

I use the white site also.  Way easier on my eyes personally.

Your ways are twisted and blasphemous, revoke your vile traditions, lest they be the death of you.

when white came out i tried it. However I'm sticking with black. As the saying goes once you go black you cant eat a lemon. Wait!

#30 Posted by Pop (2593 posts) -

yes you are weird, it looks weird to me in white wonder what the giant bomb mascot would look in white hmmm... someone needs to make that.

#31 Posted by Hershey07 (157 posts) -

The white just looks awkward. 

#32 Posted by Meteora (5787 posts) -

I can't even see the option for the white site anymore. Not that I want to change to white at any rate. White might look nice on some sites, but spending a large proportion of your time there is not great when you use white.

#33 Edited by NoRemnants (378 posts) -

I use white mostly because large blocks of bright white text on a dark background tend to mess with my eyes. Almost as if the image of the text gets burned into them from looking at it for too long.
 
Anyone else get this or am I just weird?

#34 Posted by BeachThunder (11645 posts) -

No, you are doing it correctly :D

#35 Posted by Peacemaker (1101 posts) -

We can be weird together.  I guess I just like reading black on white.  

#36 Posted by LackingSaint (1764 posts) -

White text on black background is alot easier for my eyes, but I can totally see how for some people it can be the other way around.

#37 Posted by Zidd (1836 posts) -

I like to be able to read the website so thats why i use the white background version

#38 Posted by President_Barackbar (3416 posts) -

#41 Posted by wefwefasdf (6729 posts) -

I love dark colored sites. My eyes feel like they are bleeding with the white site.

#42 Posted by Green_Incarnate (1788 posts) -

Yes, that shit burns my eyes, and I'm a programmer. I'm supposed to be used to staring at code on white background.

Ya I could see that. I dunno I used to flip flop but I just like the red text on white.

Black version is easier on the eyes. Your eyes don't feel strained sometimes?

I guess I've gotten used to it. I squint a lot on the black site. 
#50 Posted by LordAndrew (14417 posts) -

I use white site on my main computer because I can't configure my monitor to make the site readable on the default black skin.
