    Hi I will like to introduce my new site
    More content will be added. I just wanted to add the theme and get everything set up. Thoughts and input appreciated.

    I'm not keen on the colours. The grey and blue/purples used don't really compliment each other which is resulting in a blandness. The logo could also be a little more exciting and spacing applied to the top and bottom. I'd suggest, in taking the time for your theme it'll be a big part whether people choose to remain on your site. Take your time with it, but first think about the colours more that you want to use that will compliment a design which will yield better results.

    Sorry, I'm not liking the style, nor the colours at all.

    I agree with Shelly about the non-complementary colours and the the logo. You might find this online utility helpful with colour choices: http://colorschemedesigner.com/ I think the changes you need to make are very minor but they would have a major impact on the general look of your site :)

    http://kuler.adobe.com is also a good choice (I use it as they have an AIR app I can just use to download from that).

    I have contacted someone to make me a theme. It should be ready in a week.

    I agree.
    The colours are off.

    Good idea !

    The space just seems too big. I made a mockup of how to make it smaller.
    Trophy points and likes isn't something people need immediate access to.
    I kept message count, as lots of people like that.
    and space for one more.

    If you feel your members need immediate access to this information ... maybe see if someone could make a hover over effect as pictured above.

    Thanks for that, it's new to me and looks very interesting and potentially very useful indeed :)

    You basically can search for phrases/color names and it'll bring up swatches that have been created by other members (Many of which are professional designers).

    You can also grab colors from an image, and use similar features to the Color Scheme Designer website posted before. This just allows you to save them (public or private) for later use, with tags so others can use the swatch if they need it.

    You can also download the Adobe Exchange file to import directly to photoshop etc.

    This would be very nice to have.
