Well I was working on a new Theme, because I wasn't crazy about any of the current ones, but life is too hectic for me to have time to finish it now, so I'll make available what i've done so far.
It's simply called Eckels-Beta, and you can switch to it like you would any other theme.
A few features include the ability to minimize the forum details (description and thread/post counts) on the main page, for every forum. It has all the welcome information and handy links on the side of the page rather than the top and bottom. On each post is the exact time that the post was made, rather than simply "one day ago".
And that's all I can think of for now. Personally I really just wanted a simplified home page, with less clutter, and this is what I came up with. I also prefer a dark theme.
One day I'll finish it up, and do something a bit fancy for the postbits, and I know there are some glitches here and there with the layout as well, but I just dont have the time to screw with it for now.
Enjoy if you like!
