  1. Tan with blue, definitely. It looks much more dignified. Too much blue on the blue on blue. Need to keep it very professional and let the content do the talking :)

    1. Hi, JasperBob —

      I made the decision when this new Poker1 was launched for beta testing that flashy color wouldn’t be appropriate. My plan is to let the content take center stage.

      Having a large number of colors isn’t in keeping with that vision, although I’ve seen many quality sites with color splashing everywhere. I like those, too — depending on the purpose.

      I want Poker1 to remain a quiet rest stop for learning, research, entertainment, and more. There will be plenty of color, but it will thrive in photos, illustrations, videos, and wherever it’s needed. We want to keep the surroundings relaxing.

      Thanks for leaving a comment.

      Straight Flushes,
      Mike Caro
