It's pretty rad. There's a lot more depth to the board's appearance.

It is a fun design, isn't it? Wink

The folks who host our little board here give you options for backgrounds and graphics. This one is a pre-made layout that a designer cooked up, and it was in a list of about 600 designs.

I also didn't realize that I could set the width of the board! Laughing Before, it was a little compressed, but I accidentally found the width toggle function, and set it at maximum width. So now the pages are nice and wide. Wink

It's a little easier to visually navigate than the previous board theme. I don't know how in-depth this is, but I've been on forums in the past where there was a standard theme that the board was viewed in, but at the bottom of the site there was a drop down menu that allowed each user to choose and save their preferred theme out of about ten different ones. That would be pretty cool, but then again, it might take way more effort than it's worth. Who knows . . .

Alright already....there is one hot pink image that I will post:



Mollie Sugden as Mrs. Slocombe from the British comedy series Are You Being Served? Wink


And salmon. I love salmon.

But that's it! Laughing

Oh, Forumotion does have some really pretty/frilly/girly/pink layouts that I could use if I wanted to. But having the power to do so has to come with some sort of guidelines.

I often get such guidelines from art, and especially movies. Bear with me on this one, Guys. Ever see Jurassic Park? There's a very poignant scene right after everyone sees the velociraptor pit for the first time. As everyone looks on in horror while the raptors tear a steer to pieces, John Hammond asks "So! Who's hungry?". They go into some dining hall for a "lovely lunch of Chilean sea bass", and John Hammond and the "blood-sucking lawyer" launch into what a great place the park will be from a clearly profit-driven standpoint. Jeff Goldblum's character Ian Malcom shakes his head and engages Hammond in what I consider to be some truly organic wisdom.

Hammond: "But our scientists have done something that has never been done before!"

Malcom: "Yes! But your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could that they didn't stop to consider whether or not they should!"

I apply the same thought process when considering such important things as whether or not to turn the board pink. Laughing

That's one of my favorite movies.

A lot of ink sure has been spilled over the subject of a hot pink message board. Laughing

I was supposed to be mass produced from Dillion this year, the owner of the company changed his mind about the run for Christmas and sold it to me for 50 bucks for owning 3 of his older basses...I can't play it cause the knobs get in the way, but it is so ugly I keep it for uniqueness only Smile

it actually really sounds good for a cheap p.o.s., stays in tune and has a nice neck for a unit that was supposed to be sold for 199.95 this year, but again the knobs are in the way for me so I'll never use it.

I don't think I have found ANYONE on TB besides 2 or 3 people who owns Dillion units, and I am very proud to own 3 fine examples of "inexpensive" copies that serve the music well Smile

Those are actually pretty cool for being cheap, Mike. Which one has the knob issue? The T-Bird?
