One problem is that the menu buttons on top are blue, and wouldn't blend as well into a dark red theme forum. Blue and red are a nice combo of course. But they just wouldn't blend as well as they do now.

Oh go ahead, dare to be different. I think the red would spice this place up a bit. Of course with the blue it might change things.

Ok well it's done. I changed it to the dark red theme. Hope you all like it :) hehehe

What a contrast heh?

I wonder if I should change the link color in the ads to dark red or brown too, to match with the theme. lol

Here is a nice blue theme we could consider using in the future:

There's a little something for everyone with the choices. So far I like the one we currently have.

Should we change the forum theme? Do you all still like this red theme? Or are you tired of it?

I was looking at these blue and white themes below. They look really good. What do you think? Should we change to one of these?

Artodia Elegance
https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/styl ... ance/demo/

Artodia Ultra Blue
https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/styl ... blue/demo/

Artodia Phantom
https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/styl ... ntom/demo/

Proglass
https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/style/proglass/demo/

SubAndreas
https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/styl ... as08/demo/

SubSilver
https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/styl ... ver3/demo/

Personally, I like Artodia Ultra Blue and SubAndreas the best. What do you all think?

Or we could go back to the default blue and white theme that we started out with again, which is Prosilver. What do you think of it, in comparison to the other themes?

The thing is, I'm not sure how customizable the other themes are, since they have different designers. But Prosilver is easier to customize for sure.

I basically went with the two that seemed easiest for me to read. :geek:

Ok I tested out both SubAndreas and Artodia Ultra Blue.

Here's the thing. SubAndreas only looks great on the forum index page. But when you get into the topics, the font is too small, and the avatars are placed above the posts, which is kind of weird, and are a small size. So that theme would be hard to read. And it's not easy to try to change the default font in a forum.

Artodia Ultra Blue looks the nicest. But I'm not sure how customizable it is. And I don't know how to remove the top blue background. But it's the nicest and easiest to read with nice easy to read fonts.

What do you all think of just going with the default theme of Prosilver though?

https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/styl ... lver/demo/

That one is ok too. Maybe we should just start with that, then see if I can customize Artodia Ultra Blue. If not, we will just stick with Prosilver. Sound like a plan?

Are you all tired of this red theme?

I prefer this red theme to the prosilver if there are no benefits to switching.
