Congrats about the forum. It was about that time..

Only downfall I see is the lack of themes. I am not a big fan of the red one, so if you can install a simple black/grey/white one, I will really appreciate it.

Thanks in advance.

I think if you click My Profile then Customize at the top you can change colours and stuff.

If this is something that a lot of people need then I will look into it.

Adding new themes is fairly simple, however it becomes a real hassle with future modifications made to the site as it then require making those modifications to and testing those changes on each theme. So adding a second theme essentially doubles the amount of work for all future developments, a 3rd theme would triple it, etc.

The alternative would be to custom create a new them based on this one then future modifications can be propagated from one theme to the other, however it's probably half a days worth of work to build a theme like that; not something I'm interested in devoting any time to unless there is significant demand for it (and perhaps a consensus on the desired alternate color theme).

Yeah. I suggest you change the default theme. Red is a little harsh to me. It also is the webs way of saying something is wrong

lol, FFF is the one who chose the default theme and colors so you'll have to take that up with him.

If we do go with an alternate color, or offer an alternate color what would people prefer?

Can we have a theme that makes it look like I'm working? :D

I've gone with grey because that is closest to one of the tools I use at work.

we have a gray and black theme now, you can change it through the drop down at the lower left hand corner of the site.

more info is in the poll thread.
