    Hopefully this isn't considered spam.. I don't wanna get flamed or anything. :confused:

    Here it goes.. I've recently started up a forum created for iPod users and those who may have some presale questions. I would like some opinions on my design/skin, and if any of you would be interested in joining, feel free.

    What do you think?

    Technically, your thread is more opt in this section rather than the community area. I'll let you get away from being flamed this one time...

    Now, seriously, this iPod icon stands out among the rest of the graphics on your site in a negative manner, because the distinct black pixel outlines take away from the soft feel of the site and the iPod itself. Otherwise, focus on keeping the theme of the site pretty much as it is - very few forum graphics stand out a lot, and the text is fairly easy to read without standing out a lot.

    Thanks for the kind comments and constructive criticism.

    King Cobra, I agree with what you wrote, but i'm also wondering if you have any suggestions of what I should use rather than the iPod icon? I've been thinking about just using the Apple logo.. gray apple for no new posts, and black apple for new posts.

    Opinion?

    Period, not a question mark, by the way. My first and only solid recommendation thus far is take a picture of the current 40GB iPod with red lighting and resize it. Forums with updated topics can have that icon. Older topics can use that same icon, but 50% transparent.

    If you don't mind me doing a side by side mirror comparison of the new/old images, I want to make some observations:

    I think the no new posts icon needs to be a bit lighter/more transparent, by about 30% more.
