    Yes good idea and i agree with it fully but with only one little issue, many members here like to have colour in there texts, if a member changes there skin to a colour like the writing is, you wont be able to read that post, also how hard will it be for admins to do this...But sure i would like a new background on AO but may i ask if this does go out is there away to make the change stay when you next sign in on AO or will you have to change it everytime you sign on?

    Once we have a skin designed, its actually quite easy, we simply install the skin to the theme directory for the forum, and change the style in the Admin Control Panel.

    Again, You just don't get it do you.

    Its not going to happen unless the community helps us out with it. The average price for VB theme is over 50 dollars.

    That and the choice font colors will not change, since they are unrelated to the theme.

    Planning a skin may be the only long part. but installing a simple CSS file, is easy as pie. But Its designing that takes the planning as Ace is saying repeatedly. When it comes to designing a forum skin you have many things to consider. Such as the text compatibility, then the colour scheme, and only then it is ok to start the process of designing bars, buttons, and banners. Believe me, it takes a while, I make my own forum skins so I know. It might seem simple - yeah just choose colours and change them in the Admin CP.. But for those who have studied CSS, will understand that there are many components to be considered and that requires knowledge of CSS so you know where to edit, and how to alter the style of the forum.

    So if someone were able to make it, the $50 is what? one time pay or a continual thing?? If it's an one time payment of $50 then it's not too bad.

    It's Just a one time payment. But I will try to code it. But if you buy it it will be better wont it?? And Aceman I GET IT. It's just a little saying^^ I'm tired of it.But not that tired of it to leave.

    Disregarding all the politics over this... I, personally, like the skin. Of course it gets repetitive, everything does after awhile. But the purple/gray color has been a part of AO since forever. Maybe some changes, here and there, to how everything looks (and the main page), but I say keep the colors and overall feel.
