As far as I know, Vekseid is still working on it.
I think the problem will be, for most people, is the contrast of the light blue and white we're used to and the dark blue and black header and footer. If the site was altogether one color scheme, then it would help and be better for the eyes.
It will take some getting used to, but I like it. I know some people have already said that they would rather it be less dark. I think that, if you suggest some schemes and other users agree with you, Vekseid might take it into consideration.
Also, Vek, if you're reading this: the reply box will stretch for as long as you type.
Just a minor site bug.
