actually i don't know what the problem with this forum's layout is. i think this lightstyle looks fine. and i wouldn't choose the forum by it's look.
and those who don't like it can still switch to another style using the style chooser.
beside of that i like this forum, as most people are friendly and usually you will get a solution for your requests quickly. also a lot of long years dell users here.
only thing is, that activity here seems to get less. but this won't change if everyone changes to another forum.
Hopefully this winter with less fun stuff to do away from the forums, more people will return.
