I'll make you a mod if you want.  It is a HUGE responsibility, like being a jedi, though.

I know, I hate this theme.

Overall, I like the Forum layout OK but this themes all have problems.  Of course, the same thing is true of the phpBB forum too.

I don't know - I don't mind the blue so much.    If you like the functionality - keep with it for now.   You can always tweak the theme later...

ah... I see you've tweaked it a bit already.

Yes - you have to read all my whining in the secret forum.   Run while you can.

Yeah, I sent you an email complaining about the blue. Too washy/faded, and messes with the white text.
And the blue on posts blends the different posts too much. I'd look for a theme with a bit more differentiation.

And as I also said in the email, I don't mind being a moderator ... I'm checking the forum a lot and wield a mean lightsabre. Everything I know I learned form Obi-John  ;D

This new purple-ish theme is better than the blue. For sure.

The emoticons are too small to be clearly recognizable on my monitor.

Yep, I think this current version is quite usable and pleasant enough.

Agreed.   Big improvement over the other one which was harder to read.
