Change Forum Appearance?

Hello,

This has been discussed before but I thought I would bring it up again.

For those of us in a work environment, the bright blue motif of the forum is a tad obvious to co-workers and management who happen to look over my shoulder.

In the interest of furthering my addiction to this site I was wondering what the status was for making new skins or layouts for the forum preferably less blue. I know this was touted as something that “might” be available once the forum was upgraded, I’m just curious if this is still something being considered. No pressure or anything.

turn your contrast all the way down, that way it looks the same as the rest

Surely they can just track your internet usage anyway?

Admit it. Your dream is for Interference to look like an Excel spreadsheet.

We're going to be getting a new skin design in the near future. It will be more 'modern' but most likely still be blue. Sorry.

You could always go to your browser settings/options and set everything to neutral colors.

Can't we have an option like on last.fm where we can just change how it looks on our end. Like how you can customize last.fm to Red or Black based on your own preference. And I don't mean change the layout or anything.. just a little option in the profile where we can select a blue theme or a white/neutral theme.

Damn I was hoping there was a way change it back to the old layout

Edit: For Last.FM, that is.

I really don't know. I'll ask Andy to respond.

What browser do you use? In Firefox I can go to fonts and color settings, set a page background color, then uncheck the setting to let sites choose their own color. It looks much less conspicuous like this, don't you think?
