Yeah a new theme or something would be nice. If we want to do a logo redesign I can set up a contest thread.

Not just the logo, it's not enough. The whole forum is dull and needs something fresh.

Can't really do a contest for the theme. That requires some coding and it would be too difficult to set up. Just a logo contest. As far as the theme goes we need to get together in the staff forum and discuss it.

Yes, new shiny and tempting buttons will be fun! But is chaging Gimper.net's layout will be difficult? :wilber:

Nah it's not at all difficult. Making a theme is difficult, but downloading one and installing it is easy.

PR.. for Profile of the forum? The appearance of the forums looks simple indeed yet friendly. A flashy one is another step to improvement.

Sometimes my brother gets on my account... he does that because his halo ranking is really high and he hates playing with the higher ranking people, so he uses my much much lower account haha

Yeah anyone can download gimp and then right click the installer and have their antivirus software scan it. Mac and Linux users shouldn't have to worry about viruses cause, well, they don't get them haha.

Alright so, this should help.

I'm admin now. Hooray!

What should I do first? I can't do the theme, etc yet because I still need the ftp details from Gimper. He's working on it. ^-^
