    I agree completely.

    Check out http://www.ndesign-studio.com for some inspiration as to how you can incorporate additional colors into the body of your content. They use pretty much the same colors as your header, but follow-thru very nicely to the body as well.

    Thanks so much for the help guys I'm gonna see about making the icons more colorful but also noticeably different between the no-posts and new-posts.

    Will update when I think of something (or dont hehe)

    It's getting there now Kiren I think you should do the opposite or something different other than grayscale for the icons. I'd like to see all that color on the forum, as a guest and not those boring grayscale icons. I'm sure you can think of something.

    It depends really. If you want people to register you need something that will jump out at them. I think adding a little more colour will give them a better initial impression of your forum.

    Took everyone's advice regarding the rest of the forum.

    I tried using the navbar gradient but it's too much.

    The greyscale icons are the "no update" ones, if you're a member they'll colorize. But maybe I should only go halfway saturation? But then I'm afraid you won't be able to tell the difference.

    What do you think?

    Looks nice but you have to pull some of those colors into the forums itself. The greyscale icons, the categories (use the gradient from the navbar maybe.). The header is awesome. And the forums look nice and professional. The two don't mesh well.

    Well personally, as I said above, I think it looks amazing as it is.

    So not everybody else agreed.

    Agree with the others, the forum board lacks colour because of the header banner being so colourful

    I can only echo what the others said...preferred the old banner and the rest of the forum could really do with being brought up to it's superb standard.

    I agree with Dean; I remember your header a while ago I believe (I think I liked that one more than this one).

    The forums seems to lack though... it's like the header takes all the luster out of the rest of the forums. Nice icons though.
