I had one comment that the colour of the quotations against the colour of the background, made them hard to read.

Since adjusting the colour of the headings would be insane. I decided to change the backgrounds. Here (http://www.geocities.com/freedomforfission/acc/chernobyl.html) is the new one. Here (http://www.geocities.com/freedomforfission/acc/tmi.html) is the old one. What does everyone think?

Personally, my main problem is with the question/answer style. Because you're always responding to questions, it makes it seem like you're always on the defensive and on the back foot. If I'd written the page, I would have tried to have done something that was more forward, presented your points in a positive way and on their own merits. I know this isn't what you asked, and you probably couldn't care less what my views are, but there they are nonetheless.

I was going for a Clavius structure; debunking the nuclear opposition. A Q&A also makes it easier to put in disconnected arguments without completely reworking a page, for example, when I added the comment about BNFL's botched running of the THORP facility to the waste page.

I voted for a new background, I though you were talking about the BAUT!
green looks fine.

I like the new one - it is a lot easier on the eyes.

Iīd keep the old one and turn the quotation to navy blue. The new one would work with brown quotations.

I don't particularly like either colour for reading large amounts of information on, but the green-yellow is particularly painful on the eyes. >_< Maybe try a paler and/or more neutral colour.

Okay, how about a cyan background with a darker heading colour such as here (http://www.geocities.com/freedomforfission/saf/reactor.html).

The other reason for this structure is that it intends to provide a direct response to specific arguments, which means that someone looking for an answer to a specific issue doesn't have to construct that answer from a long piece of prose.

Just use a 30% gray background and everything is gonna be fine.

Okay, try the new version of this (http://www.geocities.com/freedomforfission/acc/chernobyl.html).

And forget the poll.

I think the background is still too bright. I'd tone it down some more.

I appreciate all that, but the overriding impression I take away from the site is that you're not promoting nuclear power - you're defending it. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with that, it's just not the way I would have done it if I was trying to do my bit to get "freedom for fission".

I agree with this as well. I don't particularly like the colour anyway. Someone mentioned a light grey, or perhaps a very light mauve light mauve like here.

What was the old colour combination? well this one seems quite good and comfortable for the eyes, though this shade of blue reminds me of my middle school uniform and brings back bad memories....
