Personally I've never cared for it as it seems to violate a number of
usability guidelines... the watermarked logo hurts readability, the
links use the same color for visited and non-visted links, the heading
that labels the search area is redundant, no description in the title
bar, no summary of what the organization is about.... can you tell I
used to do website usability for a living?

I also think the color scheme is a bit drab, but given the slonik logo
you don't have much to work with... did you see those shirts the
brazillian guys made up? those were nice.
