Hey, how does the forum background or skin look to you... Is it too dark.

Yes. I think it should be lighter if possible.
Maybe solid color of blue?

I like the way it looks now. It looks very science related and unique.

I think it looks good, it's unique and matches the content well.

A perfect match would be impossible, just use what works best over a wide range, and I guess you could change it a few times a year to make things interesting.

Doesn`t look as real to me anymore, the insects etc. need a little color I would think.
If you like it that`s fine with me.

Still working on it. We will have to do a poll, see what the majority likes.

Sure. Some before and after pictures. These colors aren't permanent. Still working on everything.
I will try to get like the Ad feature/latest topics/Sites widgets back on the forum face.

Let's all vote on a color. You can change it to your personal liking where it says select theme on the left upper side of the forum. I need to choose a default color, and likely will do something custom.

I should mention what I have done here was a little more than changing the forum skin. It was almost a complete makeover that I am still working on.

Sometimes a little change from time to time makes for a more interesting place, if it works good for members. I doubt any golden rule could ever be found. I have a lot of material that I hope to have time to share.

Insect rod

I like it because it is more modern and advanced. And it will only become more so advanced as I keeping going. You see these emoticons we have? Even those will be improved. I am also thinking a rearrangement in sub forums, their names and their appearance. (Not affecting the threads/posts of course.) Just an overall modern look. I will also be adding new features like a "Tag" system. Which is where you can mention someone in a topic using the @system. Then it will notify the person they where mentioned or "tagged" in the topic. I do ask everyone share's their opinion so we can get an overall opinion on how the site should look. Opinions like yours InsectRod and some others mean a great deal as you where all a huge helping hand in getting IB started.

I like the clean look. But lets see where you take it. I bet it will look great.

The new theme is great, but so was the old one. I guess they're both good in their own ways.
