This really is a question for the admin.

1. Can you guys give us the option of choosing what "look" we want.. This black is killing me and makes it hard to read.
2. Buy and Sell. Are you going to allow members to buy and sell firearms and ammo now?

Thanks
Mike

I'm not sure in regards to personalizing the look. We will have to check into that. It's more of a blue color though. In regards to the buy/sell, we are a lot more flexible on this new forum not having to deal with the Terms of Service from ProBoards. However, at this time we'd still prefer people list on a site like gunbroker. But unlike our old forum, you can list guns for sale and discuss current sales of firearms available from FFL retailers. We are going to look more into allowing private sales though and the legality of it. Thanks.

The Gray on Gray may have worked better with white (or very light Gray) borders separating things.

I think that we are getting there. The black borders make it much easier to navigate. Maybe a slightly darker gray shade of accent.
