Gray text on a gray background. No thanks.

Some mates of mine threw this together, and the first thing I told them was that someone on HN would complain about the colour scheme

We have a user voice account, we're posting on here looking for some useful feedback.

I'm guessing you changed it since this feedback, but I really like the current color scheme. The lighter-grey bubbles around the actual code do a nice job directing focus to the important bits.

It was a very subtle change but yeah we lightened it up a bit after the feedback from this thread. We made quite a few changes actually and summarised them here: http://alias.sh/thank-you-hacker-news-community

I was instinctively looking for a modal window to close to make the colors vibrant again. It's a somewhat jarring experience.

A very easy to read grey on a very nice grey background.

Yes please.
