Your VB4 site is one of the best VB4 sites I have seen. You have done excellent work on it. However your playdepartment site's theme is a little difficult on the eyes. Maybe you should consider a lighter theme.
Yes it does. The color variation between orange and light blue is a strain to my eyes, but then again I don't have any high hopes for any default theme on any forum software. That's why there are dedicated theme producers around, and I have high hopes Miko & co can pull something wonderful out of their proverbial hat.
