For reasons that I am not aware of, I can't edit the poll to close it. Rather than locking the whole thread to prevent comments, I'm posting a snapshot of the votes as they stand at this moment, for posterity, and these are the numbers that we are going with. Problem solved, but here's a screenshot anyway.
Old post wrote:As you may have noticed, things are looking a little bit different around here, depending on what board styles you use. We've had to toss a substantial number of the old display styles, because they are no longer supported/compatible with the current software. This has left us with a total of two usable styles right now, and they are ugly. Zombie Squad is all about form and fashion, so that means it's time to find more options for our aesthetically-conscious user base.
"But wait, Shrapnel," I can hear you asking, "what if you pick styles that are ugly and make my eyes hurt? You have the design sensibilities of a colorblind whelk! Who put you in charge of this?" The answer to the second question is, Crypto, and I'll add that KJ4VOV is also at fault for any displeasing choices co-heading up this deal with me, so don't blame me for anything. The more salient point is that assigning blame doesn't matter, because you, yes, YOU, will be voting to determine the ten styles that we eventually go with!
I apparently have a liberal definition of the date 10/26/13, but let's pretend it was on purpose. It's time to vote for your favorite ten board styles. You have until November 6th, 2013 to cast your vote. Unless I forget which day it is again, in which case, you have until then.
Listed here are the styles that were submitted by users for consideration. Look through them, if you are so inclined. Don't just look at the pretty colors- pay attention to where user interface buttons and links are. Do you always look to the bottom right side of a post to find the quote button? Perhaps you should look for themes that contain that functionality. That kind of thing. Having chosen your top ten, or top whatever number, cast your votes for the ones you'd like to see.
Keep in mind that Prosilver and subsilver2 are going to stay as they are, so you'll have those options if you hate all of the listed styles. Also keep in mind that the display styles listed are as-is. We can't modify/customize them with a different background image or color settings, as that causes problems, apparently.

In order first of interest and then of first to be mentioned.
