It has happened to even the best of us: you've registered for a forum that lacked the finess visually to match the wealth of information it provides. When managing your own forum, how much preplan work do you incorporate to the visuals aspects such as theme colors? Do you hire a graphic designer to adhere to the general " style " your trying to achieve with the forum or do you utilize the graphics provided by the forum theme? This may seem like a somewhat trivial question but I find myself marred with color selections, designs and functions. Do you simply concentrate the colors and themes based on a suggested logo? or Do you simply choose two colors and allow the two colors to translate into something more as you build the forum? or Do you simply feel the color scheme and visual aspects can be improved at a later date as your progress?
