Following much consultation with the moderators and extensive user testing we have developed a new coloured "Skin" for the Community Site. From all the research we undertook it became apparently clear that people were very keen on both pastel colours (specifically pink), and the colour green. Due to this feedback we have developed the "Skin" which you are seeing now.
The first phase of this was to implement it on the front-end of the website with the further phase being to implement the "Skin" on the Forum pages.
Please let us know your thoughts and comments on the new skin. We hope to implement many more "Skins" using the results that we have found so that we can ascertain peoples preferences.

PS. APRIL FOOLS! - We will be however looking at the skin in the near future (not quite so scary though!).
