I think the current skin is very dull. You can do better and still keep the current theme. Ex, Black, Dark Grays, and Orange insted of Light Grays and Orange.

Oh, I suppose there could be a better skin made... I personally like this one, the colors are nice and it's very Big O-sy. I think one with blue instead of orange would be cool, also.

I have a Big style set for this type of forum... Big O ironically being the worst with Duo Inferno the best. Odd but true.

As it stands, you can make a decent style out of a Big's color scheme.

The main problem with multiple styles comes out if certain people use certain colors that clash on one style and do not on another.

That said, I like the current style... Except that the orange background image on the topmost table cells is rather clearly gradiated, not smooth at all. *Shrug*

Thanks for the suggestion. I have a few ideas for additional themes, but unfortunately I don't have the time to work on them right now (since making them and testing them is somewhat time-consuming). But if people could list what kinds of themes they'd like to see here, I'll take them into consideration for when I have time to add some more.

Thanks for reminding me. I had originally worked on this theme on my old computer which had a graphics card that could only display 16-bit color (65536 colors) instead of 32-bit, so the gradients might be a bit off. I'll replace the gradient with a new one that looks better.

Edit: Done.

How about, since this is the Big O look, make a Big Duo (original) look and a Big Fau look.

Big Duo having black, red, and white styles (along with some grey).

Big Fau having white/ivory, red, and silver. (with the occasional black trim)

I love the orange and grey! I would personally keep it! Its brgiht enough to get attetion but still dull enough so you can read fine. Also these colours have a more calmer effect in my opnions. ^-~" Peace OUT!! ^_^""

I just switched to the "default" style setting...and man this is feaky @_@

It looks alot like what I had in mind for the Big Fau type style, except that the white back ground would be toned done a bit for that ivoryish look, and the orange headers and such would be replaces with a crimsonish red. (like a blood red)

Why red, though? Just because it looks good or is it something connected to Fau... like those little head doo-dads that were missiles in the manga.

*Sighs* I would like Inferno's Colors

*Refers to User name*, But , I think I am alone in this, But, Red and Black Would Be Awsome, but on the other hand Blue and black would be good too.
