New skin

The forum is kinda bland colorwise, maybe something a little brighter and a new logo thing up top?

I agree about the opening photos. We had a thread a few months ago with lots of people submitting new photos for it but that never happened.

I liked with the old server or w/e RF was running before, had the choice of the two different color schemes.

Theres only one owner, Christian. There's 3 admins though. It would be cool to see a change, but everyones so busy I doubt it will happen.

I like these colours. Bright loud colours (like over at GE) is just too much. Bright yellow and red, too much.

I can spend a lot of time reading posts in this forum and not have to take a break from the screen.

There used to be a white skin (best one) but it was lost in one of the updates to the site.

I say keep the skin, I love this skin because of how easy it is to read and see things for hours with out taking a break.

I agree with the 3 pictures on the opening page of the site. I think those should be kept but more added to them, like a wile back there were so many you didnt see the same one very often.

The skin is fine. Like others said this is the only forum where I don't have problems with eye strain and headaches after a few hours on here. I too would like to see others trucks at the beginning. I like the idea of a bunch of trucks so you hardly see the same one. A perfect place to get those pics is the before after thread that is currently open or start another thread for opening pics. Just an idea.

we're gonna leave the skin as is for now... too many hacks to resolve issues through numerous skins.

i'll make another thread and update the main page. i'll shoot for having 50 trucks to cycle through...

I like our colors too. I have a hard time reading things in bright colors or looking at sites with white backgrounds and black letters. My eyes suck!
