    I've been looking around at some of the other boards and getting ideas.
    There are some really neat color scemes out there, especially in Asia.

    What about some new colors for the board?

    Thinking maybe black text/gold background/red special text.

    Afraid to to do a black background which would look really good with gold and red but probably be too heavy. Anyways gimme your thoughts and ill start writing sheets.

    Lets try the Black Background with Gold for awhile, see how it does full screen not just the little bit. we can always change it later.

    I think gold background would be too hard on the eyes.... Something in pastel greens, perhaps?

    Going to try gold on black, should have it up within a few days, depending on things like tech admins and such.

    Hey... sorry I didn't get back to you on this. My internet connection went on the fritz all weekend long. Anyway, you can find a CSS sheet simply by clicking on "View -> Source" on IE, and "View -> Document Source" on Firefox. The following section is what needs to be changed:

    <style type="text/css">

    Play around with the colors until you come up with a scheme that you like, and let me know what the final design will be. Colors can either be in hexadecimal format, or the individual names of colors. For a complete listing of colors, visit [link=http:
