vote on which color you'd rather see the site themed as instead of red.

Don't care what color, just something a bit softer that doesn't contrast so hard with the white.

I liked the black/green combo of Pendlay. But, I could go with a black/red or black/blue combination.

a black option would be nice and easier on the eyes

Yes and red is a bit bright for when I am trying to sneakily using this forum at work.

I like the red, but what about red with just a little darker background than the white?

You should have the ability in admin controls somewhere to create multiple styles and have them available to switch at will. Commonly there is a light and a dark version for people's eye preference and whatnot. You can see the selector at the bottom left of every page, under all that 'posting permissions stuff', it says 'quick style chooser' when you click it. If people think the main white-ish background is too bright, you could change it to more like #dddddd which is a fairly light grey that black text will still look good against.

Black and gray seemed the clear winner here.

You now have the option to select a more discrete black and gray theme by the drop-down box at the bottom left of the forum.

if you so choose you can use this to switch to the mobile theme, it sounded like a few people were still getting the desktop site on their mobile devices so this will give them an easy way to switch to the mobile site.
