This is a test...

After getting an increasing number of complaints about the 'light on dark' character of KV I am playing around with alternatives that are 'dark on light' and yet true to the original character of KV. This is what I came up with.

I'd appreciate some feedback, if you have any. Is this better readable?

[UPDATE001] Welcome to the new KV!

I was pleasantly surprised by the positive tone of all feedback. I've had a couple of good points of criticism. I've reworked the template to incorporate them. I think it is finished now. But if you notice something don't hesitate to drop me a line.

Thanks to all who responded for their feedback.

The new colour scheme looks good, and it's easy on the eyes. I hope you keep it.

It is better like that, Kleinie. Keep up the good work.

This looks very good. Thanks for changing it.

I prefer Black on White, but your new selection is fine, too.

KV is doing a great job.

Personally I prefer the old one with dark background and light text. Half-way into spring and to almost half into fall I cannot be outdoors without shades. The light hurts my eyes and gives me migraines. But that's just me.

Great change but I'm not convinced yet by the use of green in the header of the articles. It's not as much an eyecatcher as it should be (in my humble opnion) The comment from DP111 about the tab is a good one.

Better. but being the traditionalist that I'm, I prefer black on white or light grey.

The tab for the comments is too light and is hard to see unless the mouse ,mover it.

Much better for me too. Remember that Andrew Sullivan had a white on dark blue background on his blog, and he turned into an anti-semitic conspiracy monger. I would hate to see that happen to you just because of your color scheme.

I think I prefer this one although I never had any problems reading the original

Hi KV,

I must say this one is much better. Because I generally catch up on the news at night, the "light on dark" seemed particularly hard on the eyes.

I think you've stayed true to the original theme though.

It looks clear,i liked the previous also since i'm using also a black background,perhaps now for your links a dark blue?Will.

I like this color better. Please keep up the great work you are doing with this blog! You are my window on what is really happening in europe. You may feel like a voice crying in the wilderness, but some of us are starting to hear you and similar blogs in France, Germany,Britain and here in the USA.

This is so much better than black with white letters.
