    More interested in solid background color choices. Like shown above in the mockup.

    I don't like black on an IPS screen because it's not really black, and white is cool but would be nice for options.

    At the end of the day it doesn't affect the usability of the OS itself but come on, give us a little more customization theme wise.

    If User Voice has this voted in, then We can all expect it.. I doubt MS will give us this option by themselves!

    A slider and/or color palette would be nice. And this isn't just WP, it's Windows and Xbox too...

    windows 8.1 already has a color slider/picker, accent slider/picker, background picture option (but no skinned tiles) so I don't see what justification they have to leave those out in WP. But im under the impression that the Windows 8.x and RT team do not communicate with the WP team at all.....until they merge of course, at which point we may finally have real speedy progress since RT and 8.1 I believe are being developed parallel to each other.

    I just don't care too much with changing the theme color, but will be nice if users had a choice about it, right?

    It will improve user experience.

    Are you satisfied with the present Limited Accent Theme colors?
    Yes.

    I'm a busy person.

    *If* you can change the background of the Tiles, one could just set a plain colour background of their choosing. Although that's a clumsy way to go about it.

    What i really want is the dual-colour themes of Windows 8, or the ability to change the Tiles and Background to replicate that look, as demonstrated in my unfinished Amateurish mockups.

    I haven't really focused on that as much as I have notification. Now that its finally here in 8.1, I still don't think the color pallet rises to any significant level of importance. If MS opens it up to developers, I'm sure I'll take a look but right now...I can't see how it enhances my experience.

    Me personally, I don't mind the current selection. I can see where people would want a color slider, and I think it should be provided. I still think they should give the current "suggested" colors though for people to fast pick through, and then fine tune after (similar to MS paint :) )

    That being said I am using emerald and I love it a lot...

    Nokia blue and a few other new color accents would be nice as well as choosing lighter or darker shades of each accent. A color picker or slider is too crude for WP.

    It's something that people want since the release of WP7.

    Of course it wouldn't be hard to implement that, it might be not too easy to implement it in an intuitive way. But regardless it's a design decision to not have it, similar to the missing battery percentage for example.

    Personally, yes, I think I'd like to have custom colors.

    No not satisfied. They should add background colors (that mockup looked sick). Or even just shades of gray- similar to the background in the music hub. I personally don't have too much of a problem, but a lot of people do want more customization. It seems naive of MS to not offer more options for people. Having palettes would be cool too. Maybe two accent colors and a background bundled together? Or you could customize them. If it's not your thing, just stick with the standard ones we had for WP8. But 8.1 should definitely have more customization.

    Somebody has to say it: Yes, yes I am satisfied with the limited choice of accent colors.

    Would like more colors.

    It's not as simple as turning on a slider. MS highly values user experience, and if someone accidentally chooses a color they can't see, guess who they're going to take their ***** rage out on?

    I'd like to see more choices, or maybe a slider and some intelligence to prevent stupid people from screwing up their phones.

    So what's stopping someone from choosing a color they can't see to.just simply sliding the slider back to the left or right to a color they can?
