I'm sure this is the default skin for PHPBB forums... I'd like to see a change in the colours and graphics..

I assume that BC uses the current theme mainly because it is useful on the eyes (especially for elderly people as they come here often). Also, there are only two skins that are actually free here (IP.Board.Default which is the current one and the IP.Board.PRO the one at Thoughtvent :thumbsup: )

Maybe we could have it so that we are able to change our skins? As in, have the option enabled to select the current skin we have here (default) and the black, sleek IP board one? But have the default one set as default though?

Also, Bleeping Computer runs on the IP Board engine and not the free phpBB :flowers:

Because of my age and eyesight, I find the current skin excellent. :thumbsup:

I've always found light colored fonts over a black/dark background more soothing for the eye (especially at night) but I don't really pay much attention to that ;)

Wasnt saying to change the contrast of the sight, but different light colours, if thats what everyone think would be more aesthetically pleasing. Change the buttons, member icons, gradients etc.. :thumbsup: I'm just curious to see what people think, its not going to happen :flowers:
