I now find this template a little heavy and hard to read because of too much contrasts and a messy CSS (which turned me mad in the past).
I still am on my position, saying that some dark texts over bright background eases the reading and rests the eye, so I would have liked to relook the forum in accordance.
Also, even though I would keep the dark ambiant line, maybe one or two complementary colors, or scales, may help and give to the whole a little plus.
Once I have a bit of free time, I'll try and post a roughly template here on this thread. Thus you could give your opinion.
In any case, please consider that some things have to change with time, and now that 2 years have past since the forum's creation, it may deserve a new skin (a straight third actualy).
That would go along with my resurrection...
