Hey that's pretty cool! I'd definitely give these a try. A modern look to such an old kinda forum. I dunno about the blue though. It seems too... too... Keen:Moddish. :crazy

Yeah, I was just going to say that the blue theme looks like it would be appropriate for Keen: Modding.

Very nifty, the blue would make us a nice twin to KM.

I like the orange one, though I'll miss the oldschool pixelated logo.
It just might be done someday. The chance is always there.

I'd be okay if it were optional and not forced on us. I like the classic banner.

Never heard of a forced forum skin. They're always optional, no?
I assume members will be able to choose the skin of their choice in the Profile page (i.e. Board Style: keener)

I like both of them well enough. Would you consider other colour themes given their popularity?

Color is not a problem if you have something in mind.

Bear in mind this forum has the ability to switch themes on a per-user basis, with the user setting their preferred theme. If adopted, people could select a different colour option.

Not in particular, you already made the blue one. :p It's just a good idea to get more than two going. Given that it's Keen, purple and green may be good colours.

Nice work.

What do you guys think of the idea of a theme coloured after Keen's watch in Goodbye Galaxy? Here's a preview of what it'd look like (by estimate):

Please don't pay attention to the horrible quality; I just made this quickly by applying colour replacement to wiivn's image. Again, it's just a preview.

I think the grey is way too heavy looking, candyjack. I would vote for wiivn's orange theme in the original post. And vote is what I hope the pckf does on this issue once there is a shortlist.
