So what is the effort involved to set up a new theme?

The current version is actually rather limited. I've hacked in the ability to support a background graphic as that wasn't originally supported.

Other than that it's a matter of selecting text colors and getting a banner graphic (the dragon with Campaign HQ Forums) to look good on it (or some other type of banner graphic).

The next version of the software wich a couple boards on our server (3 now) use, uses a template system whereby we basically design a static layout with some special variables that are parsed and expanded by the system. I have an idea for when the board get's upgraded, but frankly it hasn't gone very far and the idea is so graphics heavy most people aren't going to like it.

Do you have some ideas on a new theme? I'm more than willing to work on something with you if you do.

Well, the default theme looks good on my home system, as the color scheme is similar to the map of aldurian (my desktop background).

But I've recently set my personal theme to the darker blue/black/grey (don't remember theme name).

Ideally, I would want a theme that sort of matches what I've got going on desktop-wise. I'll give it some thought.
