Heh, yes this is just the standard vBulletin skin, and others are available. However, most free skins are lame, and the good ones cost money. It would be a neat project though to get a team together to do some graphic design work and get a new theme together.

Yes, this is the default skin. Larry, the owner, is looking at some new skins/themes right now (he posted about it earlier today in the Admin forum). I don't know the timeline for getting a skin/theme but I do know he wants to get one soon.

We need a dark themed skin....grays and blacks are nice and would make this forum stand out.

The plan is, last I heard, was to let the membership vote on which theme Tech-Forums will use. Larry was thinking of choosing three candidates for it. Right now he is looking.

I would rather the avatar problem was looked at initially, however I do agree with Rican up there as a dark them would look nicer than the bright one we have now although I dont mind it it would look more snazzy.

I haven't heard anything regarding the avatar problem. I'll send Larry a note on it.

I tried to add in some new default avatars, but it wouldn't work. I tried JPGs instead of GIFs. If I get a chance tonight I will convert them to GIFs and try it again. I doubt it will work, but it is worth a shot.
