    Boring Colors

    I've been looking over the comments about the forums and have been talking to some of you via PMs about how to make the site more interesting.

    One area is the color scheme. It is really bland.

    Would anyone be willing to do a mock up of a scheme that would be more interesting?

    We could then have a poll to vote on the best scheme.

    I know some of US are really good with artistic imagination. I'm NOT one of them though.

    I wish I could say I am, but I am not :/.

    Are there any vBulletin themes/skins available?

    I'm autistic, I am can help!

    Heh, eh, no seriously. I could do some mockups, but I am so back logged right now, I probably couldn't get to it for a couple of weeks. There must be some VBulliten themes that you can use for a little while, yes?

    I took jro's advice and did some hunting. The vbulletin.org site had a number of freely available, attractive skins. The main thread is (sorted by rating):

    http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/forum...c&sort=voteavg

    Suggest some from the first three pages and we can then take a vote on it. Remember, the skin has to be for version 3.5.3.
