I suggest you ...

Provide a different color theme option (dislike the green)

I really don't like the current green color theme. I'm sure some people like it, but it bugs me. Any chance of introducing another color theme?

        This would be great. To expand upon this we should also have the option of editing CSS for a custom layout.

        Premium member here. Would love a dark theme for night reading.

        I'm very OK with the current color scheme, so please do not change this theme. But if there's another option, a change from time to time would be welcome too.

        So many applications refuse to have a dark color theme. I don't understand it. I would love it if Old Reader had color customization options. Even alternate color themes would be helpful.

        Fully customizable color options would be best, so I could color-code folders, sources etc.

        a number of alternate color options would be appreciated. the green isnt so easily distinguished from the black. i think a number of options would be better than another static color because everyone has color preferences.

        Please, more theme options, I love the interface but the Web 2.0 style is not my absolute favourite. Something more compact perhaps?

        The only thing I want is for the links to be a better colour. Having them the same colour as the text is bad.

        I personally dislike dark themes. Actually makes it harder for me to read the content. So, as long as any new theme is truly an OPTION (as the original comment says), I'm fine with any such aesthetic changes. :-)

        I don't dislike the green, but the grey background on the articles bother me. Also, the waste of space in too much border, margin, etc.

        So voting for general theme options.

        I do like green but overall the site has too much white. No good for long term viewing. A variety of skins/color themes would be great.
