Colors are too neon

So I just logged in now, and I see this neon green on white background for the site... This hurts my eyes. Can this green be toned down at all because it's just WAY too bright for me to actually look at the screen?

Re: Colors are too neon

I agree. I like the idea but it's too much. Maybe something closer to #008000 than #00ee00. The blue font on green isn't the best either. If you go darker green maybe try a different color font too.

Re: Colors are too neon

The fonts seem to have gone to a pale pink over neon green on mine ��

Even if it is, it's bothering people. Change it back to the original colors and it would be better.

Re: Colors are too neon

Right now, I kinda like it at about 2.30 EST. the colours are subdued enough not to hurt any more but follow the JEM theme.

Oh, and that's on my iPad with Safari.

Re: Colors are too neon

So instead of doing something constructive and fixing the main site they decided to screw with what wasn't broken, so you can barely see the pink on green, or the pink subjects on white, so we'll all talk about something other than how broken the main site is?

On Edge it is still nasty! Marginally better on Chrome.

Re: Colors are too neon

It's not only the colors but, also how they match to each other, on iPad/safari, username field is so pale that it's not always obvious who the poster is.
