    EDIT: My previous post was about having a new and more modern looking forum skin but after some thought, I decided it wasn't a very great idea. Perhaps we could do what @Finally said and add a "night mode" darker forum skin.

    There's absolutely nothing wrong with the current, rather simplistic design of everything. I've not seen another community run a forum that looks quite like Chronet's, however, almost every other community forum i've seen looks the exact same as the next one.

    I think we need a more vibrant forum skin almost like compactgamers

    Sorry to say, but that looks unfitting.

    The only forum change i'm looking for is for the Chatbox to be moved back, something tells me that that isn't happening however.

    Staring at a plain theme has burned out my eyes enough. Something more modern would be nicer

    I heard Kai was working on a dark Xenforo skin. Not sure if that's true or not.

    I don't know about a new one. I like the look of this, it's simple and sleek. I don't think we need to change it.
    Yes. Please.

    It's quite a popular Xenforo Skin actually.

    Just saying, in the numerous rants where I did research on the top Gmod RP servers, I never once saw that Skin upon going on other communities' forums.

    Leave layout as is then make one light and one dark theme, will use dark theme all the time.

    Being able to change in settings for them.

    While I certainly have no plans of ever using a night mode (I can stare at a monitor the entire day and really not have any strain, so long as it isn't pure white), I certainly understand the use of a Night Mode, and if possible, I suggest having it added.
    Perhaps in the future, if it is possible to do, there could be a settings option for people to customize how the forums look, with a given number of backgrounds, themes, etc.

    Some people like to use their phone at night and the forums easily strain your eyes.

    I'm aware... I was simply stating that I for one do not have that problem?

    For those that do have that problem, just turn your brightness down. It's bad for your eyes to have the brightness up in the dark anyways. Hope that helps ;)
    Besides, you shouldn't be on the forums right before you go to bed, or you phone in general. The light messes with your melatonin making it harder for you to go to bed. Try actually going to bed at a reasonable your instead of staying up for hours later doing something unproductive in every sense.:facepalm:
