        I was checking a hub's stats, and I stared at it, wondering how long it had been that way.

    The black bar isn't bad, I preferred the silver bar background more though, it felt more sleek.

    Yes it's new.  We just rolled out some changes to the site a few minutes ago which included the color change there.  Most of the other changes were bug fixes or administrative tools that you probably won't notice.  But, we do have some bigger things in the works ... so stay tuned.

    I don't like it... Looks unfinished. Like you didn't know what to put there, so lets put a big dark block. Hopefully, the big changes will make the little things more professional, and less "new website" looking. I love the site, but there are a few little things, that just give the unfinished look, like the new dark block.

    Sorry... :-/

    Either I'm extremely unobservant, or I'm completely losing my mind.  I just now realized what you're talking about. ::smacks head::

    I'm really trying to get used to it, but it's such an eye sore, especially on the profile page when it flies all the way across the screen.

    A light color would be so much better, or just blend it into the white.

    I think using the same gray color that is on the profile page that outlines the blocks on the right side would be better than the black.

    Can we spread out the three tabs on the hub black bar? There's a lot of space and they're squished together.

    I saw it when I ran into one of my duplicate-content Hubs (I kept some duplicates for my own reasons).  The new black bar is very professional-looking - but a little scarier/meaner-looking too (at least when it comes to the duplicate-content warning.  smile  )  (I do think it's attractive, though. )
