After restyling the forums twice, once for the then new Lithium Version 9 software (here), and the rather redundant Jive forums (here), I've decided to once again take on the challenge and restyle the forums once more!
Now, I would've normally waited to complete it before I posted any info on this, but I've decided to get some user input on what you guys think the final product should look like. Below is a screenshot of the current board appearance (10 July 2012 @ 21:10-ish) and a full 1080 screenshot of what I have now.

NOTE: Due to the way the forums are currently coded, rank colors are currently out of the question, for the exception of differentiating "special" ranks.
That's a LOT of blank space you got there...
Which is also an issue with the current design, but I think it looks better with the blank space on the sides rather than in the middle of the page.
I was just about to bring up only the sides having blank space. That's only because the middle section is so long. Dodgers has side-middle-(large blank space)-side in his layout, which is why I said he has a lot of unused space.
Not exactly directed at you, dodgers, but more in general. What's with the shields with triangle, circle, et cetera on them next to our names? Seems like a useless little icon that only clunks up the user area.
I remember that area has a name, but I forget what it is. Anyhow, I think it should be as clean as possible, and the shield serves no purpose.
quick edit: Appears that it's linked to how many posts you have / rank. Regardless, it's still useless, and I don't like it.

Am I missing it, or do you not have the new stylish code posted here somewhere? I'd love to use it just to get the yellow text. That's got to be my favorite & easiest color to read on this dark bg.
I used both, your old Lithium code & the Jive one. I'd like to add this new one.
