    Some forums have a choice of colour themes which might be an idea but it would be up to @Josh to sort that out if it's possible.

    I’m gonna act like a smarty pants here hehe... This board uses XenForo services which can be upgraded but at a cost, not a case of the owner not listening more what can he do without spending more? I like the setup here but I’d like to change the background to black @Josh lol

    If you scroll down on the home page, right above "About Us", there's a colored bar across the whole screen. In the bar on one side it says, "Tarantula Forum." On the other side it says, " Contact Us, Help. " .Click on "tarantula forum." .This bring s up a screen that gives you four format or style choices in which to view the forum.

    It doesn't appear that the alert is working in the posts above, so I'll see if I can contact Josh for you.

    I think it would be cool to see private messaging tht kinda mimics facebook to make it quicker

    Beer emoji is an easy one! ;)
    I can try to put together a quick "dark theme" and people can use whichever they like.
    Instant messaging is a bit more challenging but I'll see what's out there. Donations and member subscriptions are always much appreciated and go towards server bills and upgrades
