Mucking around with the forum theme.

All things space. Also things not space.

Mucking around with the forum theme.

I have to admit, I never loved the forum theme we had. It seemed too dark and gloomy, and the colors never quite worked for me. I'm trying out a new one, which I like better. Maybe I'm just being nostalgic, since the colors are more reminiscent of the old forum. Let me know what you think. I can go back to the previous theme if this one is unpopular.

At first, I was like, whoa...did It crash?
Ah, either way for me. I liked the spacey dark feel but that is just me. I will work with anything. Thanks for the heads up though.

I don't have much to say, but I like this brighter look. =)

I liked the spacey, dark feel well enough, BUT I'll take the improved clarity of the text against a plain background any day. :csmini:

I like it - it does match the old forum. My only problem is that new posts are hard to see - the red color is not so visible.
NEW: I have a flickr account! Check it out!

I'm planning on tweaking the theme a bit more. I found the classic-space-themed icons used by the old forum on the server, and I'm going to reuse as many of them as I can. Stay tuned for updates.

That won't be a problem once I replace the images. :csmini:
