I think we'll have to wait to see what level of customization is allowable with the software or if its limited to certain "skins"...I'm not a huge fan of the tan and brown, but the initial default version was a lot of dark and light greyish blue that wasn't very Superman-like either...I figure it'll be worked out soon...

I chose a different version of the forum through the profiles menu. There are one or two different versions there (skins?) that you could choose from. The forum I have is blue and white.

But anyway.... Surely the point of the forum is scintillating discussion. Does it matter so much what the forum looks like? It's the words that count.

Yes, we do have a few different themes installed and you can pick which one you want to use.  The plan is to install more of them down the line, and have some sort of Superman banner on each of them.  Right now only the current default theme, "DilberMC," shows a forum banner.

As for "the long haired guy," he's been in the latest couple issues of Superman.  I believe Kurt Busiek already talked about the story elsewhere in the forum.

Yeah, I played around with the options for myself...I like the Dilber that is now being used as default, but for some reason, the blue instead of the brown makes it harder for me to see the "sheet of paper" icon on the far left that shows a sub-forum has new posts...it was easier for me to see with the brown.

Great Rao, something missing from the little profiles beside the posts are the dates when each member joined.

I used to enjoy seeing those. Will they return?

They might, I'll have to see how much would be involved in adding that functionality.  You can still see members' registration dates in their profile though.

Something else is missing too-----the "location" of each member. Some members treat this as a joke, but as far as the rest of us are concerned: I like to see where each poster is from. This is the World Wide Web after all.

I quite like that too; as a rule, I've found it quite practical to know where people come from so that you know if there might be a language or culture issue that could lead to misunderstandings. (Though having said that, I always get a kick out of people who put stuff like "bottled city" as their location.)
