Does anyone feel the site looks too plain/boring with all the gray? Does anyone think we should try to add more color into it?

I like it too, but I think having a few more colors in small doses might be nice.

For example, these. It's really plain:

I like it, but there's no harm in playing around is there?

I don't mind it, but toying with some colors wouldn't be a horrible thing?

Maybe we could turn this into a contest: find some cool icons to use when making a post?

I think I'm going insane. Sometimes it looks pinkish to me on some parts O.O

Reasons I hate xBox live:
-I sound like a 12 year old boy
-If I'm playing CoD4 or Halo3 and people find out I'm a girl. They T-Bag me.
-I get downsized for having a vagina if I speak one word into my head set.

Reasons I love xBox live:
- I can act like a lesbian, and for some reason that angers people ;D
- It's really funny when guys downsize you, then you blow them away with either, a noob tube to piss them off, or you just beat them with an AK-74 ;o

It's soothing, and I like it as it is, but a little color wouldn't hurt. I don't think. It depends. You guys do know about colors, right?

Yeah, I remember some of the things I learned in preschool. Even though it's been awhile.

But there is also color in people's posts ie. avatars, and signatures and whatnot.
So no going really overboard on it. I like it soothing to the eyes.

I mean -- you guys won't stubbornly stick to an orangle-blue-pink-gray theme, will you?
