Temple, as it's the one I started ZU with. (It also looks the best and I love how the names of the users and their staus is at the top of the post, not to the left)

Re: Which skin do you use? (READ THE OP)

I use temple, simply because I like it more and I can see who is online/offline in my User CP.

And I like seeing the stats above the posts and not to the left.

It looks visually appealing, but the problem tends to be how glitchy it can sometimes get.

Re: Which skin do you use? (READ THE OP)

Light Green. I tried them all. All of them. None sat well with me like the Light Green. Im rather used to vB anyway and the Light Green looks like most of the other vB boards i grew accustomed to. Plus its not loud on my eyes. Dark Green is too dark. Blue is a bit bright. Mobile sucks even when on a mobile device because certain options are missing. (like being able to jump to pages and junk.) White is just boring.
Temple is way too busy for me. It also kinda loads slowly on my computer.

Not that I'm complaining, but may I inquire as to why this is a sticky now?

Probably so that we don't get people making these threads every few months as has seemed to happen since forever. Or at least since the Temple skin was introduced, anyway; it was probably a bit less common before that. Also, if other threads are made, then they can just be merged into this one.

That said, I prefer the Dark Green Skin. Temple & White are too bright (And Temple uses that ugly serif font), I like the color green more than the color blue, and when it comes down to it, I prefer how wide the Dark Green is over the thinness of the Light Green. That's in a somewhat order of preference, in case you couldn't tell. Also, the Mobile Skin doesn't count.

Re: Which skin do you use? (READ THE OP)

I use the Light Green, because Solsetur convinced me to last summer, and now Temple hurts my eyes.

Have only tried the others once I think, but they aren't really my thing.

Re: Which skin do you use? (READ THE OP)

I use the white skin. Sometimes I use the other classics. I don't think Temple skin is that appealing but, it's not my concern since I don't use it. I just like the way everything is formatted on the white skin.

Re: Which skin do you use? (READ THE OP)

Temple, mainly because I'm too lazy to change it. Plus it has a decent color scheme. However, it is sometimes slow (because of all the images), and prone to breaking, so I'm thinking of switching to another skin.

I don't like how the others stretch across the entire screen, but white looks nice when you limit the width and center it. In fact, I might start using white from now on. It's got nice contrast and the colors look decent. Maybe a white skin with temple colors would be ideal.

First impression of the other skins:
Dark green - too dark
Light green - the grey/green combo looks messy/dirty
Blue - too dark, not enough contrast with borders/icons

I love how hitting "Normal Version" on the mobile skin gives the dark green skin.

Re: Which skin do you use? (READ THE OP)

I've noticed a 100% decrease in voter participation since this became a sticky. I believe it has to do with the fact that new stickies are usually at the bottom of a forum, but this one is at the top and hidden. Is there anything we could do to bring more attention to it?

Blue here.

I used to go with White, but it's gotten boring because it looked... too simple, you know? I tried all the others, Dark Green was another one I liked, but I prefer Blue in the long run and have been sticking with it since 2009 autumn. :3

Ignoring the exaggeration, what do you mean "new stickies are usually at the bottom of a forum"? Stickies are always at the top. :/

Question

I switch to all skins from time to time (yea 'coz I get bored easily) if I am not browsing using a mobile phone.

Question:

Why is it when on a big screen monitor (where the res is more than 1024 x 768) -- the Blue skin, the White skin and the Dark Green skin have the post area so wide apart? Not counting the Mobile skin 'coz that's a different context (as the name already explains it).

I didn't mean to exaggerate, I just had noticed that no one had voted since I noticed it became a sticky. And I'm probably not remembering correctly, but I meant that new stickies were at the bottom of the sticky list, not the bottom of the forum.

Re: Which skin do you use? (READ THE OP)

I use the temple one. I think I changed it once, just to see what it was like... I didn't like it. Thus, I have refused to change the skin ever since.
