stay with Leatherneck colors

too many other USMC web sites trying to match or look like the Corps, by using those colors.

We at Leatherneck.com are the Corps and that makes us unique

The color are not bad, its just that bright white background.
How about testing it with a light or very light shade of this gray in this test form.
That will lessen the brightness...

Tell you the truth...


The color scheme SUC KS BIG TIME!


I wouldn't join or sign into this web site, if I wasn't already a member, just because of the colors.

A web site like Leatherneck.Com had a certain appeal to it once you pressed that enter button. That appeal is gone with these new colors.

It has nothing to do with who is a member.

I wouldn't know who was here or who wasn't because the color are not at all appealing and I wouldn't be interested in signing in, on something that does not appeal to the eyes.

The colors suc k... Big Time.

Just an honest opinion, by someone that will view and visit web sites that are appealing... same as my wimen... LMAo



Look at my signature below, would you be interested in a serious conversation with a Marine that has PINK and bright green in his signature/

Besides, thought you liked Jalapenos.

It is brighter and more along with the corps colors.

Jerry I like the new colors. I always wondered what the blue color was all about considering this is a Marine Corps website. I like it, these new colors definitely keep me awake behind the keyboard. lol

Semper Fi Jerry!

Hey the red is awesome, looks more Marine-esque. Blew my eyes right out o' their lids when I first saw the change. The blue was okay, but red is better, I personally think.
