    I didnt see it listed in any of the options, I was wondering if it was possible or if there are any plans to implement skins for the new board?

    Quite possibly, but it all depends on EP.

    Yeah I myself was looking for that today. It would be really nice if we can get more.

    Yes, but vB3 is an entirely new system, so please give it time.

    I will start seriously adding that stuff when vb goes final, adding a quick orbitz header and made it expanded (the popular choice over fixed)

    I think it looks nice as it is :D Some people will be glad to see Orbitz and Ekko re-appear though.

    "I think it looks nice as it is Some people will be glad to see Orbitz and Ekko re-appear though." Yup, can't wait for the themes to reappear, or new ones.

    I doubt the forums will be anymore orbitz than they are now.

    I will either buy a totally new vb3 skin or do my own, and then the frontpage will be updated to reflect it.

    I'd say go with own. Saves money, it's more unique, it'll be satisfying to see it in use once you've put the effort into it, and ...ehmmm.. bought skins suck? :p

    I like a slightly dark theme myself. It is more easy on the eyes ...

    Not forgotten, but it is going to take me a while to get to a stage where I am happy with the rest of the site, to get the new skin installed and in sync...

    The frontpage will then evolve to reflect the forums.

    I prefer something stable to something that looks pretty. I think we're doing fine on both accounts at the moment :)

    (although that xp-erience skin should really make a return :p)
