So far I have:
red and black

pink and green

blue and white

grey and dark grey
"Suddenly Frodo noticed that a strange-looking weather-beaten man, sitting in the shadows near the wall, was also listening intently to the hobbit-talk. He had a tall tankard in front of him, and was smoking a long-stemmed pipe curiously carved. His legs were stretched out before him, showing high boots of supple leather that fitted him well, but had seen much wear and were now caked with mud. A travel-stained cloak of heavy dark-green cloth was drawn close about him, and in spite of the heat of the room he wore a hood that overshadowed his face; but the gleam of his eyes could be seen as he watched the hobbits."

Oh i'm gonna get rid of various, once i filter them out, probably, there are some that did catch my interest immediately. The watermelon one, despite the silly preconception, CAN be made into a cool theme. But i want to see the suggestions of everybody before i pick a few. :D

Sometimes the best suggestions are unawarely made in jest.

Well, shit. And here I thought I'd be helping when I made a thread about making up a stylesheet.

There's a couple people who have volunteered to help with stylesheets. Three of you now, I think. Mir@k, Soulchild and you. Stuff also offered. Honestly, BR was looking for as much help as he could get, so don't worry.

Agreed.

Can we not go with the optional layouts option?

Yes, I agree with the option to choose skins. Other forums have been doing it for years, even CodeTwink. But that was vBulletin. Is it possible to do with phpBB?

There's supposed to be a drop down box to select a forum template in your user settings, but it doesn't appear in this version of phpBB.

I see the dropdown menu, there's just only one option

That's what I thought. In the administration panel there's an option to force the default template for all users. Either I'm blind, or that setting is enabled and it preventing me from seeing an option to change my style.

Ya, sorry. When I go into the Administrative control panel and look at people's profiles go Board Preferences > Global Settings there's a drop down menu between "My Language" and "My Timezone" which says "My Board Style". I guess the option was just removed from being visible when the forum updated last time, since the got rid of the other board style you could choose, and made the option pointless
