The only problem I have with that one is that the braces and ground under the tigerdroppings sign aren't visible enough.
I understand that and that's where the case for keeping the current colors is very strong. Only solution I can give is make it a much lighter smoke black, other than that, I don't know.
There has to be a color scheme that fits this board's topic and brings out the braces and ground enough.
BTW, I just remembered your old screen name. Weren't you TheCountingTiger? Control Cop is a pretty cool name.
