I'm probably not going to stick with a pre-made theme but wanted to get us to a more aesthetically pleasing place asap.

I want something that will work with blue because i love the blue smilies :D

I want bad people to look forward to and celebrate the day I die, because if they don't, I'm not living up to my potential.

I'm not too concerned about the look - it's good for me.

You might wanna turn on some of the anti-spammer measures.

I like the Charcoal2 and zerospace templates, but I'm partial to darker screens.

Freakin' spammers!    :upset:    And there's no way to report the post to the mods.  Is there a way to change that?

I need to upgrade to a stronger captcha...I've read that the default one is easy to get around.

I'll look into it...there shouldn't be any reason why I can't add that feature or similar back to the forum.

Captcha has been updated....that should fix the spam problem...if not, there is one more easy thing I can do.

Thanks for the quick response.  I just love it when site mods care about their forums.   :D

I'd love to have a matte black/brushed aluminium theme... Maybe I'll make one when I have the time if there are more people out there who want one :-)

That said, I think having a portal would be nice. Still, some people consider forum portals a huge waste of time and bandwidth so... yeah. Other than that, the place does look good.  :cool:

We use to have a portal...but we got hacked and I decided to scratch everything but the posts/members and start over.  I'm going to get a portal back up again eventually.  But this time I'm not going to use someone else's portal script...the old one simply had too many bugs and too many unnecessary add ons.   I'm not even sure if I'll make a true portal or just a home page that include the header so everything can be accessed easily....probably will depend on my mood when I sit down long enough to design something.

I've been out of the loop for a while. The site changed while I was away and my bookmark no longer worked. I thought Happy Atheist was no more...  :D

Personally, I like the forum. I think it looks great. Maybe a bit more customization would be nice, though. "Awards" for lack of a better term. Or possibly a large number of "statuses" (ie, Member, HAF Addict, etc... I can only imagine what we could do with those, hah)? Or possibly even something like PMOG has in the way of "badges." (Ten points to the first person who claims they don't need no stinkin' badges.)

Cheers to the admin for creating such a great, warm, embracing place for us atheists lost in the sea of believers!
