Gotengo is the best to tango.

That is all I have to say.

This. Gotengo was always the best out of all the styles in my opinion.

I really loved the old Godzilla-Blue on the previous board, which I think was turned into Classic now. Though I find myself gravitating towards Gotengo. The only thing that I'll have to adjust to is the white text on dark background, and of course the lay out of buttons :P

Can we get a Ghidorah-themed one? Maybe with golden borders and such, but a dark background?

I'm going to have to disagree with the folks who say Gotengo is the best one. I have to say that I'm really digging the Kaiju Outline one.

I like the Godzilla Generations one. I miss the MKG theme so much.

I take back what I said. I like the Kaiju Outline, it was the old TK theme I used :P Were is my brain? I just really dislike the bars on the side. Really wish we can change that.

Yeah, the Kaiju outline is a close second for me. Also pretty cool.

RIP, Dark Coffee Godzilla board style (2010-2016). :(

That isn't to say the new ones don't look nice. It's just jarring to see this website be so bright when I had it on a darker style for six years.

Change to the Gotengo theme. It is pleasantly dark.

I like the Kaiju Outline theme best, mainly because it looks somewhat like the theme I used to use:

I'd still love to see that theme return however.

For some reason, I feel that something like a Biollante theme would look somewhat good. Have a dark foreground (such as black) with a dark green background, or something... Just throwing an idea out there. But I used the MKG theme for quite some time, so that is definitely one I'd like to see return.

If that were a theme, it'd be my default.

I like the look of the 20th Century White/Classic theme, but have a few issues with the details. Could we get a similar theme with avatars on the left side of the screen? Also, I like thread titles to change colors when the thread gets a new post. Makes it really simple to tell at a glance if anything has updated.

Gotengo (Blue - Dark) has avatars on the left hand side as well, I didn't really look into details with the others since I pretty much latched onto this one after seeing it. When a thread gets updated it changes the text from White to Red, which is a good heads up.

I prefer a light background, though. I used the MKG background from day one on the old forums. The new white/classic theme is pretty close to that one, but just needs the tweaks I suggested. Or, y'know, the MKG one could just be brought back. *shrug* Either way would be fine by me.

I played around a bit with all of them for experiment's sake. I like the feel of Gotengo except I don't think I can tell whether or not letters appear any different when bolded, which is a little important to me.

Right now I'm using Kaiju Outline which I also like pretty well.

As someone who needs to use a dark theme because of eye issues, can we have at one more option for that? The only one I can use is Gotengo, which is fine, but I'd like at least one more choice.
I will explain slowly why you are wrong.
