    I am talking obviously for the site's design.

    Why there is blue background instead of white?

    It makes the text difficult to read.

    Shut the fuck up. It's one of the few websites that you can read at night without wanting to claw out your eyes.

    We can keep the old look as an option for people who prefer it.

    I guarantee this text would be harder to read if the background was white.

    OP, it sounds like you prefer RPGWatch's background color. We can arrange for you to see that color if you want. :cool:

    I recommend going to your profile->Preferences and changing the theme to *New Codex* or whatever it was called. It's great and has white background.

    This reminds me of that one time the site changed to eye burning yellow piss.

    By the way, I like blue, so shut the fuck up.

    Once everything on the Codex has been merged into one giant megathread, it can easily be copy/pasted into Notepad for a white background. Win-win.

    In any case... embrace it, hater.

    I still see blue but thanks for the brofist Mr.Undertroll.

    BTW since everyone loves this shitty blue background I guess we can keep it.

    It enhances the smell of rotten corpses and dissolution that this place exhales anyway.

    A white background color? What are you fuckin' gay dude?

    White text on a dark background is best, was best, and shall remain the best.
