    Alright folks, the free style has served its purpose and gotten us through the first few days but now I'd like to settle on a "Forum Facelift" so I can get some back-end development going that wont break style properties moving forward.

    I'm going to attach a poll with a bunch of demo links to various XenForo styles. A few of them are the original MTG themes, though personally I'd like to steer clear of just copy/pasting the site as much as possible if people just really love one of them I'm fine adding it in for nostalgia sake.

    YOU MAY CHOOSE UP TO 3 STYLES, BUT PLEASE TRY TO PICK AT LEAST 1 PREFERRED LIGHT AND 1 PREFERRED DARK THEME.

    You don't "have" to - I for one never use dark styles so I wouldn't pick one. But it'd be nice if you could weigh in if you do have an opinion :)

    Default/Light Styles
    Beryllium/Chrome are my personal favs in this category. Either would offer lots for future design & are highly customizable (can be turned into dark themes with ease, for instance).

    Beryllium [Brivium] - Demo
    Good base colors & options, very lightweight, and it has a cool name.
    Pros: Subforums displayed on home page, sliding notice area would be primo for feature development, small top nav bar
    Cons: Link nav isn't as nice (no button effect), boring old icons

    Chromium [Brivium] - Demo
    I love the icons on this one, but the base colors need a lot of work.
    Pros: Awesome icons, link nav is very clean, very nice notification area
    Cons: Bad base colors (purple & green? Ew), subforums not displayed on home page

    Flat Awesome+ [PixelExit] - Demo
    Clean, minimal load times
    Pros: It loads quickly
    Cons: Lots of dead/wasted space. Pretty bare-bones feature wise as its meant to be a minimal design.

    Zipped [PixelExit] - Demo
    This is the default MTG theme.

    Dark Styles
    I have no skin in this game, I don't particularly like dark styles so here they are without bias:

    Titanium [Brivium] - Demo
    Pros: Can change colors & themeing easily. Highly customizable.

    Flat Awesome+ Dark [PixelExit] - Demo
    Pros: Lightweight like its light version. This was available on MTG.
    Cons: Same as its light version, a lot of dead space.

    Apex Dark [PixelExit] - Demo
    Pros: This was MTG's default dark theme (I think, this and Flat Awesome Dark were both available on MTG)

    Beryllium's awesome AF, Chromium to keep in touch with my feminine side, and Titanium because Bumblebee.

    Ok, now that I am in the right thread..... :confused:

    Anything but a dark style (last 3 options). It would be highly irritating for this site to be a black background when every other page/tab in use is white/light gray.

    My understanding is that a light style will be default and any others optional.

    I don't really like dark themes, but I think Flat Awesome dark is #2 out of all the options for me. It's a little easier on my eyes than the other dark themes. Flat Awesome light is my favorite. I think both are just cleaner looking than all the other options.

    Chromium and I like the dark- Titanium ( and the 0ther ones, too)- it is easier on my eyes- but whatever you guys decide is fine with me and thank you for asking us. On the Titanium you can change all the colors- is this available to us, as users, all the time or is this a feature that gives you, Chris, the ability to pick colors and create the look that will end up being the look?
