    I was wondering whether there are any plans in the future for customizing color schemes. I remember that in a previous version this was possible..

    The blues are.. making me blue. I want reds and purple and pink!

    Reds and purples and pinks, eh?
    I have a feeling that my cynical side is going to make me say something very sardonic in a minute. I'm already starting to twitch.

    It's possible to have the user customize the color scheme to their liking.

    here's some Web development resources on color scheming, forum themes, color theory..etc

    EDIT: The link was intended in case the Admin would want to implement it, figured it will help in some way :wink:

    I've managed to refrain from sarcasm, you can too! (It's a good idea, but still, it warrants a good sarcastic remark! :wink:)

    nahh.... greg should just redo the colors. I really like moniques idea... some pinks would really be nice. some lavender would really help too.... or maybe a really deep purple... actually that'd be nice. Maybe the boards would draw a few more females if the place wasn't so blah... some pretty feminine colors would really be a nice change. Great idea monique!

    Well, exactly my idea! :wink:

    But I did think about all the other poor members, that's why I said customizing so that everyone can choose their own settings!

    So you are going to take care of the flower icons Greg? How about an inactive topic is closed tulip, while active topics are a full-blooming tulips and the really popular threads are red roses in full bloom. Locked topics could be bulbs..

    Maybe that is it! I need a break from the winter blues I've already changed my wallpaper to bright red, something to stimulate the mind.

    well i like the flower ideas monique, though maybe we should throw in some butterflies and rainbows. That'd really make pf much prettier. Much better than the drab gray-blues. Oooh or maybe Greg can decorate for the season. Have cute little penguins here and there, little prancing reindeer, Oh! and Gingerbread Men! how cute would that be!?!

    oh wait, maybe we shouldn't leave greg in charge of decorating really... lime green and hot pink??? obviously he's lacking in the color cooridination dept.


    Winter Blues?!?!? winter is the best time of year guys! Me... i like my desktop to be black.... then i can see my reflection, and thats always fun to look at!

    Silly girls, do not dress it up in flowers and prancing reindeer, this is science!


    Oh, and Gale, whatever happened to being sick of seeing yourself when you were on the computer? :wink:

    Sometimes I question the sanity of PF's members.
