Seems I missed some postings here - I will see what I can do tomorrow - doing something so late in the evening is inviting mistakes.

The theme change works for me now in the User Control Panel, but the banner with logo and text does not show up. You'll need to refresh the theme and imageset in the Admin panel.

Admin->Styles->Themes->SE Gamer Dark->Refresh
Admin->Styles->Imagesets->SE Gamer Dark->Refresh

Then -

General->Purge the cache->Run now

New Optional Theme is installed (currently un-branded - meaning completely unchanged defaults)

New Banner is up for review.

Thanks guys.

@Elfwyn - The banner and text I suggested is only a first draft. And I'm not an artist. So I have to work more with it - if you like it, that is.

You could also keep the current banner (with the planes, which looks a bit like Hornets) and only try new logo+text on top of that. It'd replace the default "SE Gamer Dark". But perhaps the text would work better in white on that blue-ish banner though.

BTW, what's the name of the font in RSQ's logo?

The Dark Theme had a different set of images for the Banner (different Dimensions, CSS-Backgrounds instead of IMG and so on), so I had to rework them completely with Gimp.

Hope that's ok for now.
