for me, it's the grey color. it's just bland (imho) which is why i prefer the plain blue-white color of the classic skin. but you know do what you have to do. no biggie
It's too bland, so you'd prefer something plain?

(Okay, maybe I shouldn't have had coffee at 11 PM, but that struck me as pretty funny in my current caffeine-induced insomnia.)

I also dont like the bland grey color. Its not only that its a little bit too bright to comfortably look at for long periods, but it makes the whole forum look boring.
The "Prime" skin is blue on my monitor.

Also, Prime has the members list, which I like. It's missing in the Nexus version.

Yes, it's blue on mine too, though my laptop color settings aren't as good, so it looks grayer on that.

Oh, sure, make me switch back to Prime to see what you're talking about. I guess it isn't anything I've missed.

Edit: Oh, okay, that. Maybe Greg can stick that into the menu options in Nexus so we can get to it without needing to add another button to the toolbar?

I get used to Nexus' colors, so I'm not going to switch to Prime right now!

If I was a mentor, I just picked up some names from the member list and start issuing warnings whenver I was bored!

I dont think it qualifies as blue, but as grey :)
Is there any way to check?

I know when the RGB values are all equal then its true grey, and here its:
216 - 223 - 228

If you take a look at your own attachement, you'll notice it IS a hue of blue

It looks grey to me. So does PF Prime when I look at it (It looks very blue on my regular computer)

The RGB value is 216 - 223 - 228.

This means it is extremely close to being completely grey (228-228-228 being grey)
Just to put things in perspective:

In other words, it might aswell have been a hue of red or green, it would still look mostly grey.
And this is what i think makes the site look bland.

Nope, it's got more blue than red and green, so it's blue. You can tell by the columns it's appearing in in your attached image.

Edit: Here is a comparison of various combinations of those "number values" and the associated colors, all placed on a 228-228-228 gray background for clarity.
