    I have been playing with adding some third party styles to the site. I love this one:

    http://www.horrordvds.com/vb3forum/index.php?styleid=29

    or

    http://www.horrordvds.com/vb3forum/index.php?styleid=28

    If you look at the style dropdown box at the bottom, there are a few others you can checkout, too. But I think the one above is the best. I'm thinking about porting it to the whole site - right down it only works on the forum.

    Note: These styles break the main portal (main page). You should switch back to default before going back to the main page. Worst case: clear your cookies and restart your browser.

    I'd still like Rhett to get off his ass and make a Phantasm style.

    The first style "29" looks really good!

    The second style looks a little thin horizontally on my monitor, but maybe that's because I am using a widescreen ratio.

    Looks good but it's too dark for me.

    I prefer the black background - a new style that retained that might work for me, otherwise, I'll stay with the current default. Still, always nice to have a choice.

    I will third the "too dark" comments. I like the cobwebs, though.

    So dark, Dave! So dark. I can barely see the B, I, U icons above my post.

    Yeah it's funny how many love the default style. I guess it's just what we are all used to. These have been the forum colors ever since we went to Vbulletin I believe, plus it's on the rest of the site, too.

    I've toyed with trying to make some more styles for years now, but I'm wondering if it's worth it. I still think it would be fun to make some horror movie themed styles.
