So we have loads of new themes for you to choose from. The question is whether you like them or not...

I've got used to the new look of the forum now, but will be getting a background?

Why isn't the artwork on all the themes? Sort of no point having all those options if that's the case...

Because the other themes all work with light backgrounds. The default theme is the only one with the background image as per the official site. We'll end up having double the themes otherwise (white background and the artwork background for each theme)

Easiest would be just to have one theme

I changed to the Black & White option and there's barely any difference anyway. :P

With regards to what? All I changed was the background image. What other artwork is there?

The background image is only up the sides, which are very thin strips.

I have a tiny laptop, so not really an option. :P One day when I'm earning money I'll buy a proper laptop.

The actual theme despite the need for a little more customization is nice enough i just cant use it because its too bright, was on all of the colour options before

The old theme was nicely broken up with the black background to the text boxes behind the forum, the nice dark red writing for the links on black is nice on the eyes and the slightly gray boxes for the actual forum areas is great.

the newer one, other than the dark main background is white on white on white and is kind of hard to look at for me

but again the theme itself is nice enough its just the colours used that make me not want to use it
