    So i am sorry but i have to say this. Blackhatworld forum has officially the most unpleasant design. Those black letters i mean and everythign seems so unorginized for me. It's hard to watch.

    Just my 50 cents.

    You probably have the wrong style on, go to the bottom of the page and on the left you see a drop down style selection, choose black and gold.

    I actually like it a lot. It's probably the best design I have seen on a forum. Simple, readable, fast. And it doesn't hurt the eyes.

    I like the black. It is easy on the eyes and save up battery on my phone and tablet.

    The first thing I do when I log in to BHW is change the theme to blacklight. Reading from black background makes me feel dizzy and hurts my eyes. Anyone else has this problem?

    Even for me Black and Gold hurts a lot.

    By the way, you don't need to change the theme every-time you visit BHW.
    Inside your profile, there is a setting where you can change the default theme.
    Whenever you are logged in you see the set theme (For Example Black Light).
    When you logout you will see, Black and Gold.

    My problem is the opposite of your problem; my eyes hurt when I read from a white background, so I find the Black Hat World design to be quite refreshing from all of those other websites that piss away my screen real estate on firing white pixels.

    I agree. The logo is bad as well. It breaks every possible rule using gradients and glares. Cheezy.

    The irony.

    You joined a forum which is all about breaking the rules.

    And your first post is to complain that the first thing you see broke the rules.

    To be honest, it is a bit dated now. I used to love it a few years back. But I think that it's mostly the default vBulletin styles that annoy me, not so much the colors.
