    Any chance we can get rid of the Pepto color schemem in here? I don't mind the reddish orange, but the messages backgrounds are too peachy pink.

    Perhaps a tan or rust color instead?

    Opinions?

    Edit:
    Wow, "Pepto color scheme" was a bit harsh. It seems that the "pepto" color is only on LCD monitors. It actually is much nicer on CRT's. I will be testing the color scheme on BOTH to make sure that colors are nicer on both. No offense was intended toward the previous artist. And I do say "artist" because putting all of this together is turning out to be much more difficult than I had thought! :D

    Well, you could completely redesign the banner and the colors.... Ask Grimby where the info is... I understand you are something of a graphics person as well ;)

    I've messed with the color scheme a bit. Here are samples. Ignore the images, they are just placeholders.

    Are you trying to match the current Banner?

    No. The banners, reply image and possibly the ad holder images will all be new.

    Then I would concentrate on those before playing w/ the colors... You can make the colors compliment the new graphics... It seems to work best that way. :)

    you can do it either way really. You can just put a tint on the graphics so they match up w/ the color schemes.

    Well, you know how these things can evolve...
    I was doing what I could when I could. Didn't have my graphics software at work until today to play with pictures.
    Scary having this much free time at work.

    Well I did fail color theory... ;)

    Actually I would have passed it with flying colors (pun intended) had I actually showed up to class :D

    Okay, here they are in all their glory. Well, almost, don't have the ad holder imaged done, and may just leave them as I think they go okay as is.

    Check em out and let me know what you think!

    Zoo, there is a method to my madness! I am a guy. Figured there should be a little eye candy!

    JGoC, I just checked the links and they are working fine. Did you get any errors??? If IGN is having trouble serving up the banner ads then sometimes it hangs up, but that is their prob. Let me know if I can help.
