Subject Re: Sidebar color scheme survey
Date Wed, 30 Jan 2013 04:07:02 GMT
Andre,
  Thanks for the great work!
  I search out the original sidebar post on facebook:
http://www.facebook.com/ApacheOO/posts/395424523873910
  And the result till now shows that B1 and B3 are more favorite, and A1 is
following.

  Here is what I counted out (some people voted for multiple options. And
if some one just say "I like 3", I will +1 for A3, B3 and C3):

A1: 4
A2: 1
A3: 2
B1: 5
B2: 1
B3: 5
C1: 2
C2: 1
C3: 3
