    What Nightfire said. Also, I don't think that green is really a great color choice, especially that gradient bar.

    It is green as it was made for a forum of a site that I am making and it has very good reason to be green.

    Seriously dude, if you haven't gotten the general vibe yet, that green in the bar cannot be an option...

    I take no responsibility for the above nonsense.

    Contrast, color combos

    There is nothing wrong with green, persé, it's just that the pale green shades don't work at all with the whites. I guess it's because there's to little contrast between them, which makes everything look very glaring.
    Also, on the subject of color my insights are next to meaningless, but personally I don't think green and blue combine very well.
    There are a number of resources online on color combinations; unless you have a really good eye for color, I suggest sticking with more or less safe combinations instead of going for daring ones like green-blue.

    No dude, it is the shade of green that you are using... it is too flourescent. Try and get a more pastel shaded green.

    Tone done

    I tried to figure out what it was about the greens that put me off, but since I don't have any graphic design background I'm not familiar with the lingo. For me, the bright green attracts way to much attention for a background; as ionsurge suggested, maybe toning it down will help.
    As for the pale green shade, it still is competing with the white too much, making it hard for the eye, and therefore strenuous for the viewer, to find the boundary between the two, where the whole purpose of that background color is just that. Same goes for the pale grey/blue (?), by the way.
    If I recall correctly, the scheme allows for a border to surround the different blocks; see if a darker border would help to separate them from the white background.
    Regards,
    Ronald.

    The colors could use some work, they don't compliment each other and are kind of hard on the eyes. Keep trying!

    I've already started work on my next one, which will be called text and will be text only and unlike this one, it won't be a rewrite of subSilver, however, I will make changes over time on this one...

    Edit:

    I had second thoughts after making this post, and I am sorry if I hurt anybody's feelings. And, it was just an opinion. As I said, I am sorry if I hurt anybodys feelings, this post was not intended for doing that.
