What do you think of green and orange, something like this:

Its a nice feeling when people can agree on something. Don't you agree?

That one screams vegan, but not philosophical. Would you consider a more earthy color?

Not sure, that one just seemed too saturated to me. Not that I don't like it, it's good but doesn't exactly reflect the nature of the forum. Or maybe I can't handle change very well. :D

Maybe something like these? http://img14.deviantart.net/e8a7/i/2015 ... 95ff6z.png

I also like the colors of veggieboards.

I like that green less. I would sooner lower the saturation than changing the hue to a more yellowish green.

Can you do an edit for your idea of the right hue and saturation?

I quite like this:

Note that the text is still in the old green, I was too lazy to change the text too. I made the orange slightly darker as well.

I also added red as an accent color as an experiment, I thought it'd be a nice nod to TVA. The orange looks better to me though.

Color codes:
Green #557f4b
Red #da4545
Orange #ff7035
