I noticed that the site has a banner of the gang but why not the forum as well? Maybe if there was an image of the gang circa Pup/WNSD (as that's the ones that most are familiar with besides the pre-85 ones) we could get more members, also a more Scooby-centric layout such as stills of the characters run cycles could be added as the forum background and finally on the content and buttons switch it to more appropriate Scooby related graphics and colors such as the default purple and orange scooby logo colors along with making the folder icons being magnifying glasses over fuzzy ? Marks with the question marks becoming clear whenever a new post is made. I've noticed that when a forum mimics the show its dedicated to, it performs a lot better such as buyavowel aka the Wheel of Fortune boards actually looking as if it were on the puzzle board or vidwall on it's front page. If we looked like a part of an actual scooby episode then maybe we could get more Scooby lovers out there to join.
We actually used to have a really cool banner on here but ProBoards (the domain that hosts this forum) deleted it back in June 2013 when they did their upgrade of all forums. I can see if it's possible to re-upload that same image (although I don't have access to it, you would have to ask ScoobyAddict).

Thanks, I was just getting ready to ask you, it would be cool to have something new. I remember when the proboards update happened, some were rotten but buyavowel (wheel of fortune boards) had to suffer through it but they recovered. Another thing that might be cool is having color changes to the layout that corresponds to a character (i.e this default could be Mystery Machine, Purple for Daphne pale blue for Fred, orange for velma, and green for Shaggy & Scooby)
