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. :(

I've always enjoyed the white site more. Though it's an odd design choice to have all that jet black on the top of the front page that goes straight into white or dark grey without any sort of gradient. It honestly looks weird to me on both versions of the site, though especially on the white version. I always thought that'd be changed from the beta.

I'm all about making the internet more black.

Black for life. The white continues to blind me.

Black looks really sick, I really like the colours that they chose. I think Im keeping the black.

You enjoy being blind?

#59 Posted by T1000 (45 posts) -

The whites better. In my opinion.

You know what they say. Once you go black, you never go back.

Black4Lyfe. Doesn't strain the old retinas.

#62 Posted by Osaladin (2579 posts) -

I'm finding the white easier to read things on.

#63 Posted by PeasantAbuse (5094 posts) -

I'm dumb, someone tell me how to switch. I miss the black background.

#64 Posted by mpgeist (649 posts) -

Tried white for about 5 minutes and couldn't take it. It just doesn't feel like Giant Bomb! Back to black for me.

#65 Posted by Silver-Streak (1509 posts) -

@peasantabuse: Upper right corner of the window, you've got a button with A | A, one black, one white. Hit that to switch.

Black power!

First thing I did when the new site came up was swap back to the black theme. Defaulting to white is the work of a crazy person; I enjoy my retinas, thank you very much.

#68 Edited by bobafettjm (1500 posts) -

I tried the white one when I first was trying out the new site, but I still prefer the black one.

Once you go black you never go back. [/originaljoke]

It's because the Red text over Black looks pretty bad, they should go back to the yellow for links on black, and let us choose a colour for our user names. Not just the 5 from before but say like 20 different colours.

#71 Posted by Cloudenvy (5874 posts) -

Black, of course. Do you think I'm some kind of savage?

#72 Posted by NekuSakuraba (7200 posts) -

Black Giantbomb for life!

I think Maddox said it best, web designers think a white background is like looking at a piece of paper, when in reality it's more like staring at a fucking lightbulb.

#74 Posted by Neonie (438 posts) -

I like the white better, but I did on the old site also. It's not so much my preference for the color so much as that it's easier for me to read black on white as opposed to white on black.

Once you go black you never go back.

I liked the white design on the old layout, but not so much now. Strange how I'm the inverse of everyone else.

Plus, white hurts my eyes at night.

#77 Posted by WinterSnowblind (7595 posts) -

Dark backgrounds with light text hurt my eyes a lot.

So yeah, I prefer the white site by far.

#78 Posted by egg (1556 posts) -

Black is better because the forum sections displayed under each topic title is more visible.

So if you like white, you are wrong and therefore need to be "taken out back"

You are bad and you should feel bad.

Might be time to see a doctor.

#81 Posted by cclemon36 (181 posts) -

Fuuuck, it's just so bright.

#82 Posted by supamon (1339 posts) -

Always bet on black.

#83 Posted by probablytuna (3973 posts) -

This is weird because I was a fan of the white background in the old site but now I prefer the black background here.

#84 Edited by Bigheart711 (1240 posts) -

The Black version still looks waaaaaaaaaaaaay better, even on the new version.

#85 Posted by Intro (1213 posts) -

My eyes burn from the light given off by the white screen, but I look when layouts and stuff get revamped, so I don't mind it I guess.

#86 Posted by papercut (3748 posts) -

You know what they say, one you go black...your eyes have a better time adjusting to the brightness of the screen and the damage you would otherwise have staring at a white screen for long periods of time gets reduced.

Black websites just look so damn nice though. This site looks cool.

I wish all websites were black to be honest.
