Nao... please don't get me wrong I like the color.... It's just too much of it, and allot over kill in the unread department, if you know what I mean... if you place only the number of post or unread, that will be cool to me. I know this not the place But... I feel too many forums just look the same to me and I get bit bored ... and the WEDGE and another system or fork we both know, are different and look more social than just another forum. Now I don know if some here are trying to see you fail at this but I want very much for it to be, and to be OUT of the Box, of the ordinary, if get my thoughts.
Now Like mentioned earlier Word press is nothing but a Header image, until it get the user's content in their, and that what I'm saying, I have done at least 30 theme from WP and does nothing for the system until content is added. I'm seeing through my testing that there many skin possibilities, However if they are too complex, after the content is added pictures ads and what not it will be a mess.. or Cluster of distraction.
Now if the Above poster want pink, he's free to make it pink... too many want things that have no value in a community, as the content has and the great framework the system is built on.
