All,

Thinking of installing a new forum design as an easy first step in freshening up this place.

Take a look through a few of these styles (most the colours/template and any images can be swapped for more 'United' related ones)

Certainly looks fresh and modern.

Cool Ed - personally preferred the 'requiem' version.

Looking there Ed I feel that Ambrosia, Audacity, Iredescent or Vermillion could be in with a shout, it is basically red and the rest is as is. The forum doesn't need to be to fancy just be a little more colourful especially with regards to United.

Best thing folks look there get a list of possible themes then Ed makes a Poll and the masses decide which one.

Ambrosia is good- back to the red white and black

Ambrosia, Audacity or Vernilion are all good

But tbh I'm not that fussy, so long as the colours are United related and the layout is easy to use I'm happy

Why would I do that ?

Rocket produce some very good themes, most of them are just colour variations of the same template, Vermillion is based on the Metro theme which came out a couple of years back.

The only thing I woud say, is that whilst Rocket Themes are an excellent buy, it can be tricky to get some of the plugins to work with it, adn it with phpBB.
It's a long time since I worked with phpBB but I do know that if these themes are designed for the latest version, they very rarely work on older versions.

Not arsed... whatever suits you lot is fine with me... just sort out the most common posting annoyances, and I'm reet...
