I always use Incarnate. It's the default look, and the one that the website is "supposed" to look. It's bright and flashy, which matches with the crazy posts and rants on this website.

Nether looks calming, but looks way too relaxing for a website full of people arguing and ranting.

If you take Nether away from me, there's no telling what I might do. I just might be the kind of guy to hunt you down and take ALL Y'ALLS nethers!

I like the polls. They are better than having the shoutbox. I wonder if there will be new polls in the future.

I have used incarnate since it was deployed, but i do love Nether and I used Nether before incarnate came along.

I'm staying out of this I can't decide.

So... what are these changes?

Just some design changes I'm contemplating... We've had the choice between these two for a really long time (even with previous designs) so we may still carry forward both the red and the blue...

Extrapolating the data of the poll tells me cool people use Incarnate and losers use Nether. Interesting.
So you use Nether then? :rotflmao: ( I am such a jerk. )

I did not know the colors red and blue had such fancy names.
I use the one with the red navigation bar, which ever that is. I never bothered to try to change it. :shrug:

OK, I bothered to look into the Incarnate / Nether options. For those of you who do not know (like me a few minutes ago), go into your Preferences page. At the top there is a Style field with a drop down box with three options:
Use default style: WTF.Next - Incarnate
WTF.Next - Incarnate
WTF.Next - Nether

The two Incarnate options are the red color scheme.
The Nether option is the blue color scheme.

@Jason, since this information is stored in the wtf.com database, could you just query the database instead of taking a poll?
Maybe you could only include the Styles of members who have been a member for at least a year and have posted something in the last three months.
:twocents:

For those of you who do not know (like me a few minutes ago), I looked up the definitions of the Style names:

incarnate = embodied in flesh

nether = lower


I do not see the relationship between the names and the colors, but maybe I am just blind / dumb.

(Also, I could not find these definitions by scrolling to the bottom of the page.)

Although I much prefer the color Blue over the color Red, I prefer the Incarnate style, because the dark blue background of the Nether style makes it more difficult to read the text. Therefore, I propose a hybrid of the two:
