... new look on the forums. Tell me if you hate it and I'll change it. I find it soothing, personally.

Paint the walls white. Let the decorations (toys, photos, etc.) provide the color...

It's looks great, and it goes very well with the rest of the forum layout. :) It is also good on the eyes color-wise, however, I think it would look better if the colors were somewhat inverted to how it is right now. :cool:

Mind if I try my hand at a banner? :p

To be honest, I think it's hideous - but then again, it's your guys' site, Kirby and Whitney. Way to straining on teh eyes... but oh well I come here for the content not the forum design :)

How much more black could it be? The answer is none, none more black.

Yea, I don't know how much black it can be. I think that a lighter background would look much better, IMO. I thought the recent background went more with the black banner. :)

How about this: the site would have two layout designs, one for the day and one for the night. The daytime one would have light colors, and the dark would have dark colors, like how it is right now. :wink: :idea:

I'll probably change it. The greys are a little too light. And the black sides are kinda harsh. I dunno. Just having fun with it.

I like what do did to the actual boxes of the forum. :) Nice. The background isn't so harsh either now.

Also, it would be cool to add a little chat box on the left or right to the pages. :cool:

sounds like you pushed things around a couple times today -- looks nice now though. i like the two tones of gray alternating every (other) post.

it'd be reallly fun if the background faded to grey at night and blue in day!
