I'm sure this has been talked about on here already, probably several times... but it would be VERY nice if you could just choose your color theme. I'm not talking about being able to customize everything about the site... just color themes. Please.
This is something that has been requested in various forms over the years and Jeremy has always said that he is sticking to one theme. The colour theme is part of LQ and has been the same for quite a while.
I usually prefer a darker theme if I have a choice... or one with contrast and nice colors like maybe grey/blue/black/something. I'm not an artist or anything, but I think you might call it "soft" colors?
For example, for my theme I use SphereCrystal and for my gedit highlighting I like Tango. Aside from the "soft" colors, it has a "soft" and smooth look.
Not that I don't use vim a lot...

With Python code from "Dive Into Python". Smooth. Nice.
Maybe not the best, but it comes with either the gnome-themes or gnome-themes-extras package, so I don't have to search around for one or take a chance on something working or looking funny. I like darker themes a lot, too. Variety's really better than just one kind.

I too think it would be nice if we could set the site colors. I like to have my GTK theme set to a white-text-on-dark-background style, so I figure it would be more fitting (and easier on my eyes ) if I could set my LQ colors to be similar or the same.
I'd also like to be able to have little kittens instead of penguins and colourful flowers all around the LQ site. AAh, and it should also display some information about my star sign in the top left-hand corner
Sorry, I couldn't resist. This is LQ.org, not some trendy site for teenagers.
For myself, I have been staring at computer monitors since 1980, starting with the light-blue-on-dark-blue color scheme of the C64. If there is an option to go with a darker color scheme than the default black-text-on-bright-white-page on a website I frequent, I will always go with the darker color theme that causes the least strain on my eyes.
I really appreciate the alternating light-blue and grey sections for posts here on LQ. The only thing I would change would be the default background from bright-white to dark-grey.
Just my 2¢.
As a note, for those that prefer the darker backgrounds with lighter text over it and are running Gnome, in the gnome-theme-extras package, there is a theme called Darklooks that I've been enjoying for a while now. Real easy on the eyes.
