    Forums look phenomenal. Really need to get the main landing page back to the news like it was though. I miss that bigtime.

    About time another site went to Xenforo.
    Any plans on another style? Little hard to differentiate between gray and white.

    We are still tweaking the skin. What different would you like to see in the new skin? Can you give me some examples?

    Look at my sig as an example. The text that doesn't have a link is quite light.

    Wait... one more. lol
    I think the logo up top looks kind of bad now. Too dark. If it's staying like that with the wide bar, it should be centered.

    *Idea* Logo Contest?

    Is it easier to read with a white background?

    lol! Yep! It looks like PereDroid read our minds danDroid. We are probably planning to have a logo contest at some point after we iron out the bigger issues.

    The problem is a lack of contrast, Same goes for reading the text under thread views. I don't feel the white needs to be changed but maybe the system font.

    Xenforo likes to use a lot of light gray and white. Not sure what really works best but I like darker backgrounds to offset it.

    The main news landing page is up now. You can access it by either clicking on the news button above or simply clicking on the DF logo above that.
