Poll: I THINK I LIKE THE WHITE SITE OVER THE BLACK ONE WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME? (270 votes)

I prefer white 20%
I prefer black 80%

Guys, I think I like the white version of the site over the black version what is happening. :(

Racist obviously. Fucking white supremacists.

The white site in infinitely better with this new design compared to the old one that's for sure.

I'll try it for a while i think. I still like the black site a lot though.

Color doesn't matter (well generally white on black is easily the best to read but the colors are okay here) but phone friendliness tends to kill or severely hamper browser friendliness.

You're suffering from "new site post traumatic stress disorder".

I've always used the white site.

I'm not sure if I'm the only one that voted here, but that looks funny. I like the overall site format. Its fucking fantastic! Just the layout, is great. ~ But, going from black to white: is like turning on the lights in a dark room, and finding a legion of giant rats (being us) with giant yellow eyes, trying to get used to the light. I think white is alright, I just can't use it much, at night.

I just switched to the light version of the site. Looks more clean.

My vision is bad, and I can see better with the black site rather then the white.

#11 Posted by Pr1mus (3907 posts) -

Actually to be more accurate i'd say i like white for the forum but black everywhere else.

On the front page the white site kinda looks like crap because of the black background behind the top 4 videos/news.

When it's just the dark header at the top it's fine.

WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU

also the new polls look effing sweet.

#13 Edited by Weltal (2273 posts) -

Black all the way, white looks okay, but I need that sweet,sweet darkness.

#14 Edited by CaptainTightPants (2834 posts) -

This was their plan all along, obviously. Make the new site look better in white so that we all make the switch.

#15 Edited by TheSouthernDandy (3867 posts) -

I kinda like white too. I might ride it out for a while see how it feels.

#16 Posted by MooseyMcMan (11004 posts) -

Black is WAY better. White is just plain ugly, and it doesn't even change the top bar! Ugh, it's the WORST!

Once you go white, you'll be alright...

#18 Posted by Pezen (1604 posts) -

They're both nice. News/Reviews look stylish in white, but the forums feels better in (the) dark. I'll probably go dark most of the time, but somehow the articles look a lot more professional in white. No idea why.

Jeff will not be pleased.

#20 Posted by RandomInternetUser (6789 posts) -

White text on black will always be easier to read for me and therefore my preference. White is better than it used to be, though.

#21 Posted by JohnDudebro (924 posts) -

You are a fucking maniac.

#22 Edited by ConfusedOwl (940 posts) -

I'm with everyone who says the black version is better. White hurts me eyes.

#23 Edited by Marzy (675 posts) -

Still prefer black, for me.

#24 Posted by JeanLuc (3583 posts) -

I still like the black better, but the white is certainly better then it used to be.

#25 Posted by YoungJustice (9 posts) -

Black FTW!

The white looks like we are trying to copy IGN lol.

#26 Posted by big_jon (5727 posts) -

YES!

#28 Posted by MyNiceIceLife (622 posts) -

I've always preferred the black site just because it's easier on the eyes.

#29 Edited by TooWalrus (13197 posts) -

It's not a white theme, it's a light theme. Big difference, this seems way less bright than the old white site. I'll still be using the black site though, until, you know.

#30 Posted by Joeyoe31 (820 posts) -

Black is way better when browsing at night.

#31 Posted by McGhee (6094 posts) -

The fact that they made white the default greatly offends me.

#32 Posted by Phatmac (5726 posts) -

Never mind guys, I love black now!

#33 Edited by Mushir (2389 posts) -

The main reason I went with black on the previous site was because that the white site looked plain ugly. Now I'm using black just because I'm used to the dark design. They both look nice now. Good job Dave. And Alexis. And everyone else.

#34 Posted by sixpin (1291 posts) -

Black is still the best version. I can't do white. It is too harsh.

#35 Posted by Apparatus_Unearth (3149 posts) -

I like the white one but this dark one is dope.

#36 Posted by thevigilanteoflove (504 posts) -

Definitely black. So much easier on those eyes.

#37 Posted by DarkShaper (1333 posts) -

The white version of the site still hurts my eyes so I'm sticking with black.

#38 Posted by Monkeyman04 (1130 posts) -

The white theme is less offensive than the old site, but I still prefer the black theme.

#39 Posted by TooWalrus (13197 posts) -

Also, this isn't the beta anymore, chill the fuck out with the caps.

The contrast of white text on a black background is better for your eyes on backlit displays. This is even why the tablet version of Amazon's Kindle app allows that for a reading mode.

Unless you're reading on some sort of future transparent and/or e-ink display, the White Site will slowly kill your eyes. However, if you enjoy it more, then use it. Don't worry about what others feel.

#42 Edited by L44 (560 posts) -

I am glad I was reminded I could change it. Black is so much better.

I prefer darker sites in general. I even have a chrome extension to apply dark themes to sites with bright backgrounds.

#44 Posted by Milkman (16786 posts) -

I think I'm going to stick with the white.

Also I like the way polls work now

#48 Posted by habster3 (3595 posts) -

Dark, all the way

#49 Edited by FirebirdINF (275 posts) -

Dark easy to see and looks more badass

#50 Posted by JJOR64 (18990 posts) -

I still prefer the Black Theme, but the White one actually looks good for once.
