    Why is this site so ugly?

    Please, let us switch themes like most VBulletin forums do. The default theme for this is is UNUSABLY ugly. It literally looks like shit. Who designed this crap?

    You could always post some art and point out exactly why the contrast upsets you. Go on. Don't be shy...

    You know, I was just thinking about how I wanted the site to be hot pink with neon green trim. It's really too usable as is.

    The colour scheme of the CA forums is actually my favorite that I've seen on any forum. Fancy that.
    My Sketchbook

    And then God said, "Let us make man in our likeness and our image. Let us make him ridiculously hard to draw so that poor artists everywhere will have to spend 10,000+ hours failing repeatedly before they can begin to capture the form and likeness onto a two-dimensional surface." And there was man. And it was good. And artists everywhere lost their minds.

    Two posts and each so insightful. Did CA turn this guy down for a designer position?

    There's definitely better site designs out there. And forum ones. I find the Penny Arcade forum a lot more user friendly, and easier on the eyes. One or two of my friends that I've introduced to this site are frequent forum users and even then had difficulty finding a few things.


    THAT BEING SAID.... I'm not trying to troll. Just giving the OP the benefit of the doubt. I've gotten used to CA.org over time and know where everything is, and have really grown to like the colour scheme and how it houses posted artwork. But there are also reasons why people are waiting for the new CA.org forum version.
