I like it actually. I was thinking that there was too much empty space. I was almost thinking of adding trees or something as well because it's kind of blank. Let me work on it later and see what I can do.

Dark blue text with a light blue background is too tough to read, especially when I'm reading on my phone. I can't read the user name, or the username/timestamp text when a post is quoted. It's much easier on the eyes when there is no quote since all the text is white. All the text was white before the change.
It looks nice, but would look really sharp if the royal blue text was white. It's like a jersey in sports, almost all colored jerseys have white text so the name and number are easy to read. The white jerseys have black text for the same reason. There are few exception (yellow on green and vice versus, purple on yellow and vice versus). While I'm betting maybe ya'll can find one, I couldn't find a jersey with the background and name/number a variation of the same color. Just click on a forum, and look how the thread page numbers are blue, with the comma/periods white. It doesn't look right.
EDIT: Changed post since the black text looks nice, it's the blue that is not easy on the eyes.
I can't for the life of me figure out how to get the logo into the gif layers. The only way I could get the logo in there would be to do the whole thing over again. I am not an expert on this so there might be something that I just don't know or understand about it.
So for now we will have to use the animation I made. If I get into a creative mood again maybe I will remake it with a logo and maybe some trees as well. There are still a few months until the festival so I have some time.
