xx Message board standard starting colors
« Thread started on: Jul 18th, 2011, 09:06am »

I was thinking that the standard colors for our forums the yellow and greys are really not that appealing. I know you can change them to any color you want, but that takes time to do. I was suggesting that we change the standard starting colors to that of support colors, so it will be more appealing for people as they are starting out.

Oh yeah, I'll admit the default colors is pretty hideous! I had thought about, since we were thinking of implementing board templates, that we could have a much more appealing default template for start.

That would be great. It will help with the people that don't know that much about changing the look of the forums, and it will give them a nice starting out look.
