Love that avatar! I don't know whether or not it's my Radeon X1650 card or my Samsung 713n LCD monitor, as I know I have (almost) perfect colour vision myself, but what you call purple, looks mostly blue to me....with a very slight lilac-ish tinge.
the new theme isnt that bad. The tealish green it looks like to me. As everyone else said i prefer full width. I know in IPB you can edit the CSS of the skins to get it full screen. I wonder if the same can be done with vB?:lup:
