Out of curiosity: does this forum have another skin besides the burgundy-and-parchment?

It currently doesn't, but I am certainly planning to add some more, mainly House-themed ones.

Of course if you have any other suggestions, let me know and I'll see what I can do ;)

No real suggestions. I was just wondering what the plans and options are :).

House themes would be amazing, as well as an overall Hogwarts theme. Maybe also a dark theme (dark post BG with light text) that would be easy on the eyes if you were laying in bed in the middle of the night with your tablet because you are unable to keep from checking the forum?

Not that I do that or anything.

Oh, I second the idea about a dark theme.

Maybe there could be an "Order of the Phoenix" theme and a "Dark Arts" or a "Death Eaters" theme? Just a thought...

While I appreciate the sarcasm, I would rather outright admit that yes, there was a week this summer that I posted at least once between 1 AM and 4:30 AM every single day, from my kindle in the dark of my room. Colors that are easy on the eyes and easy to read are much appreciated.

I'll make a dark theme a priority over House themes, as I'm sure those who have spoken up about it aren't the only ones browsing PFF late at night ;) The other ones mentioned are just fun, while a darker theme could actually be better for the eyes!

As you'll notice when you enter chat, I've been working on some styles. The standard chat style is now a PFF style.

Aside from those, I've made two styles which are intended for use at night: Order of the Phoenix and Death Eaters.

Then of course there are the four House styles.

Please do give me your feedback on them! Once these are good, I'll be making forum styles based on them. So make sure to give me your feedback and help me improve them!

I would also like to make a general Hogwarts-themed style. However, before I do that, I need to know: which colours come to mind when you think "hogwarts"? Try showing me the actual colours if possible!

*edit* Ah, I forgot to mention. The old styles are not available for now; let me know if there was one you really really loved and want back!

I really like the background of the OotP skin, but red is hard to read against it. Might I suggest an ivory/bone color or a light gray instead?
