Default Gaters Art Direction

I got asked to redo the colours on this site so it looks like gaters.

There is a lot I don't like about the look of vbulletin forums, and I was hoping to go for a bit of a goofy web2.0 style site that really opposes the hard boxes of vbulletin.

I figure gaters takes itself less seriously than most stargate sites, so I've tried to take away those elements of the design that make it look either a bit corporate, or too much like a hardcore scifi fan site.

The default templates are horrible to work with (as there are plenty of things to change), and I haven't been able to find any kind of replacement, so possibly at first I will just change teh colours, but I would really love if it looked like this:



The logo is just a quick dirty drawing i did of the gate, it would be better, but this illustrates the non-realistic look of what it would be like. Bit of a throwback to the gaters tshirt drawing too.

Also would need matching icons or something.

That looks great! But what would a thread look like?

Now make it happen! *hides*

I doubt anything Stargay related could tempt me away from my plain vanilla vB style. But if anything could, it'd be this. Nice one.

I like the gate. It's funkeh.

Good luck *salutes*
