    Skin I just recently had coded. Going to be selling it professionally, so any suggestions in terms of changes and what not - please let me know! I know the text is hard to read in certain areas, working on that.

    Coded for the latest version of IPB3.0x..

    Wow, general feeling is really neat.

    But change the colour of the green. Choose something more neutral because the green doesn't fit in at all.
    Also change the default forum icons of course. Look for a free to use (commecially) icon set that's about magic and stuff and work that in.
    There are plenty free icon sets to be found on smashingmagazine.com for example.

    Also change the grey of the bottom bar (with mark boards as read links and stuff). Make that a brick bg as well ( or just transparent).
    Also change the colour of the search button (again the green has to go :P)

    And also work the icon that's for opening/closing the sidebar. It doesn't fit in with the theme either.
    And btw, an image with sidebar view would be nice too, so we can see the header for that :)

    But nice skin though, nifty theme :D

    Thanks for the feedback. <3 I will work on incorporating most of what you've said. Any suggestiosn on text color? I've tried a few different things, but it's hard to find something that 'fits.'

    Thanks,

    Not really, the transparecny isn't making it any easier :D
    Perhaps the dark brown from the navigation menu?

    try that greenish brownish colour from the sign in the header and I would use a font like georgia or something serif for everything instead of the arial or whatever your using now it would fit the theme better
