Added a new template style

Still needs some tweaking but it's a little cleaner and easier to read I think. Graphics need work still let me know what you think. I called it "simple".

how to find the styles:

Go to the bottom of any page - on the bottom left you'll find a dropdown. That's where you can select from different styles. With enough work I can make the board appear completely different depending on the style people choose.

I don't really like how the forum headers just kind of fade out. The bad post report is just a red x also. It looks good otherwise.

What about Rickman orange or BRG(British Racing Green) with gold text.

I like it.

There are some red x's in a few places, but I assume you're working on that?

yes, it's still in development. just something i got to playing with the other day. It's helpful for me to hear where you're seeing the X's because I use mozilla and rarely see the broken pics/links.

hmmm... didn't know that. Looks clean. Is it any faster or just something to look at?

I guess while were on the subject, why is it that some links to pictures open, automatically in new windows, and some don't? I sometimes close an image from here and it closes down the site.

attached pictures will open in the same window, you'll want to backclick out of there. offsite or linked images will open in a separate window and can be closed without affecting the forum window.

Some of my thoughts in developing a simpler style was to unclutter it from unnecessary imagery, multiple colors and enlarge some of the text. I kept thinking "clean - neat - simple" - changing colors is quick enough, recreating all the tiny .gif files so they color coordinate can take more time than I can invest in one or two sessions.
