Hey!
I think this forum is awesome , but the design is quite ... dark...
Maybe , we could redesign it , for example , each member could take charge of one forum section , or put a different colour for each subforum , or put some pics ...
What do you think about it?

This exactly. They're called "skins" and there's a drop down menu at the very bottom of the page, where you can change your skin. There's also a setting somewhere in your User CP, if you snoop around for a little bit. Personally, I use the Bingo! skin.

Personally, I'd like the ability to create your own skin for personal use, sort of like MS Powerpoint. I always use black and gold, but I'd really like to try something less...default.

If you're tech-savvy, there are multiple extensions for web browsers, e.g. stylish, that allow you to change the CSS properties of a page, being able to pretty much insert whatever colours/alternative images you desire.

Other than that, there are always the multiple forum skins you can choose at the bottom left of each page.

I like using Bingo! and Silver Blue, and sometimes Dark Inferno. The first two are not dark at all.

I guess that class I took last year was useful. I might try changing the code a little bit. :lol:

Dark Inferno is my favorite.

Good point, this colours sucks. I prefer more light and rainbow colours like on my avatar :P:whoops::wub:

If there isnt already one, maybe someone should create a noobie guide to the forums. How to's and such.

If you want to look around the internet for some vBulletin(version 3.8) themes, and you find one that looks good, you could suggest it to an admin and maybe they'll consider adding it.
