Looks ugly just like the forums. What's the point of having washed out colours and low contrast text on something that is mainly about content only, and not about looking fancy? If we are going to change the theme for just one thing I'd vote for the forums.

@leper Thanks for the constructive feedback, i'll revoke my proposal and give a chance to someone else to do some fancy looking stuff.

Don't get ofende, the trac need be stay simple and primitive. Your design is good but no for a trac.mostly of  users aren't artist.

It would be great if you could help fixing the low-contrast text problem in the forums instead - I have posted some screenshots  with the problematic areas underlined:

There hasn't been really any complaints about the lack of color contrasts until it was put in.
To be honest, that is the first time I have trouble accepting a modern, minimalistic design principle.

I think the ugliness of the theme (the current one or the proposed one) is subjective and a bit irrelevant. The lack of contrast on the forums is a real problem because it can prevent people from participating at all. On the other hand I don't think we should care about people who think "oh this website is ugly I don't want to participate because it doesn't look modern". Those people are not motivated enough :)

@daker Thanks for looking into updating the theme though. What we could maybe do is installing that theme without making it the default? That way it is available to the people who'd enjoy it. I can look into that when I upgrade Trac to the latest version, if that sounds good to you.

I suggest to use the Stylus add-on (do not use Stylish, it sends your personal statistics usage by default, while the Stylus fork doesn't) to test new (trac and/or forum) themes.
One can also upload themes on https://userstyles.org/
 

@daker I prefer dark themes, have you ever thought of creating one? (for trac and the forum) ?

I am not really sure you can install multiple themes, if it can be done i can provide the CSS and the site.html

IPS is not free so i can't really test locally, also making a theme for it can be complex and time consuming.
