Funny! You are a living testament as to why the Post Merging was brought about. Glad to see it's working!

If I were you I would bench yourself on the sidelines, as it seems your already ruffling feathers around here.

absoltely i apreciate what thisguy is trying to do he has bold ideas and some of them arent bad but he cant expect to come in here and change everything the way he wants it,

as i said much respect to Cohen but i think you should calm down for a bit if you have a look through previous posts on suggestions then we have been suggestion a new theme for a long time but i think we all agree the white screens are a bigger issue,

(which by the way i havent had one in atleats 2 weeks?)

n e ways there are alot of members and mods here that are glad to listen to the odd suggestion but your coming across a little overpowering,

Once more with feeling this time.
It is complicated and time consuming and a real pain in the arse to make themes. Or to snatch one and make it work at your forum. It's not like a singled sided razor. Push, pull, click click. And the bigger the forum, the bigger pain in the gazootenblatz it gets.
You as the user can not change the colors from your end. VB is not engineered that way.
As for the layout, give it time. It grows on ya.
ZZZzzzz...

Actually I've installed vBulletin themes in about 10 seconds. It doesn't matter the size of the forum - if you find one elsewhere that's great, you just upload it and it enable that one in the Admin CP.

The whole attitude from the administration and people on this forum is that everything is so time-consuming and dreadful that nothing can ever be changed here. Some of these little things only take a few minutes and could dramatically increase the look of the forum and could make guests more inclined to stay around. If you start up your forum, it's your responsibility to keep it going strong, not have it crashing every 10 seconds with white screens, database errors and connections refused and actually make the forum appealing to new members.

Theme's fine...the framework isn't. The page is very very wide, on dual monitors...because of page selection.

If he rebuilds the theme, it would be tidier. As for the subject layout...since this forum is intended for computing support, why having board related section first? I mean, it's not a www.ratemyforum.org type of thing...

Computing goes first, then board suggestions and such, then socialising and other turd.

Embedding videos is a bit risky, a spammer would love to post the videos they try and link to
