[quote="Ashley":24db59ar]Hmm... I looked for a different style, this is the closest to the old design:
http://demo.phpbb3styles.net/Czar-Orange
But they don't have it in green for phpbb3... thoughts?
Or you could have a browse through there and see if you can find a style you like![/quote:24db59ar]
Well, out of the ones I looked at...

http://demo.phpbb3styles.net/SimpleLightGreen
http://demo.phpbb3styles.net/Serenity+Green
http://demo.phpbb3styles.net/Avalon+Green

...Those three I find to be the most pleasant on the eyes, whilst still retaining the green colouring.

I'm interested to see what else we can come up with though.

I really do like the Czar theme, and I'm not just saying that because it's what I'm used to. It's a really readable board style. If you like, I can fiddle with the images and .css to recreate the Czar Green theme out of the Czar Orange. Or hell, I could even do Czar Blue or Czar Charcoal or Czar Periwinkle if anyone wants one of those (not Czar Periwinkle).

But as far as existing themes go, I like these two:

http://demo.phpbb3styles.net/Avalon
http://demo.phpbb3styles.net/ktukblack

Because they're clean and readable. After some thought, I'm not really digging the color highlighting on the posts with the current theme, and the icons are rather ambiguous and confusing. I mean, what does this mean: . Haven't got a clue, but it sure is big and blinky.

It's fine. Blink three times and you're home!

... or maybe that was something else?

The link for 3.0.1 skins only is
http://demo.phpbb3styles.net/?phpbb=3.0.1

I'm liking Serenity Green best so far:

Ew, really? That green next to that orangey-brown is icky. The plain Serenity is nice though, if a little plain.

My offer still stands to tweak Czar Orange back to Czar Green though. Maybe this as a header? It's different from the old one, but it matches the front page:



Edit: Huh, this stylesheet just straight cuts your images off if they're too big. Well, I guess that's better than table-breaking.

Edit 2: Or I could tweak this scheme so it has better icons and more subtle coloring on thread posts. It's not a bad layout, and I like the green-and-gray overall.

I think that sounds great! And when you do, be soure to take away the plain white background! Do you have somewhere we can look at the old forum Ashley? I don't really remember exactly how it looked.
