So after reading the replies in the old thread, we understand that several of you would like something in between white and grey.

Therefore we try again. Please vote=)

Grey? Silver? White?

Silver. Curiously enough, in these windows the gray seems to be a lot worse than on first impression in the other thread. If silver wasn't an option, I'd actually have changed my vote to 'white.'

The forum compressed the images when I attached them, that's why they look so bad. Sorry about that.

Anyway, leaning towards silver myself.

I don't find very big of a difference between the grey and silver text examples but nevertheless, White is king :)

The images aren't very good. You should just post the text as is:

Black
Dark Slate Gray
Dim Gray
Gray
Current Gray
Silver
White

I say Silver.

White creates too much of a contrast with the black background, and could be slightly annoying.

Gray is too dull.

Silver is the nice medium between the bright white and dull gray.

Sorry about the images n00bonicPlague. I haven't got my staff ftp set up yet, and the forum compressed the images >_<

9 out of 11 seems to want Silver at this point though. So the two guys that want white simply have to turn up their monitor brightness ;)

Me likely da silva! Okay, said a little more intelligently, I like silver, because it's sleek and complements the rest of the forum layout, but isn't too bright or dull.

Silver is golden, in this case.

White would be easier to see for me.
Of course if none of those colors work.
Im a big fan of purple / yellow. :D

I have sensitive eyes and reading white text tends to burn... so silver for me. :)

silver is good grey is a little hard on the eyes on a black background and white wouldn't look good

Silver

Gray

White

I'm not sure what's going on, the text isn't gray anymore, it's lighter, but it isn't quite silver.

Nothing has changed.

You sure? I was pretty sure it was gray, because I have noticed that the text is easier to read than I remember, unless I've gotten used to it, because my screen settings haven't changed.

Keep it white, silver gets sort of blurred with the black background and its hard on the eyes!
