Very easy on the eyes and easy to read IMHO not to mention unique!
Yes you are beating it to death and it already has been dead.
As mentioned SEVERAL times, we will not be making a retro skin as skins as a pain to maintain. People using the BLACK skin already have noticed issues that need to be fixed as they carried over colors from the default skin when being created and missed being edited. Each time we may make a change that affects the appearance of the site, we then need to be sure to check each skin. It's a lit of work. Seeing that only 450 (or so as I forget the #) had the Retro skin ON it was a choice we needed to make. Even the Black skin only had 2500 or so but I required a dark one as people use the skins in their theaters. We are the only Huddler site they did this for that I am aware as it is very time consuming. But they understood the importance of a dark skin to the community.
All in all, their are TOOLS you can use with your browser to make a site LOOK like you want color wise. Feel free to make your own skin colors and once you start, you may see why. (And understand, you may be using point and click to change colors and save them...not sure as I do not use such a tool. But on this side of things, it is all hand programmed and even a lot of the images needed to be done to work on the dark vs default color. You may have seen some great right here in this very thread.... http://www.avsforum.com/t/1413952/really-miss-the-retro-skin#post_22115279
Maybe ask that member for help in how he does it. Also ask how long it takes to get it to where he likes it. Could be 10 mins for all I know. Could be he is still trying to get one he likes.
I really think I am done saying this now.
I really hope this helps.
