PerlMonks needs more Themes

I think something that Perlmonks is lacking in is more Themes. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy the red, blue, and dark just as much as the next guy, but every once in a while you just want some other colors. Personally, I'd like to see Green, but any other colors would be a welcome addition, as well. What do the other monks think?
Just my thoughts,

    If you come up with the theme, including all the associated images and color specs and so on, you'd be more likely to actually see it get implemented. (Hint, hint...)

    There's no reason for the people with graphic design skills NOT to create the themes themselves. I may be wrong, but the GIMPing probably takes way more time than loading a new theme into the code base...and it's something a volunteer could do pretty easily.

earn your Themes?

    I think it'd be pretty neat if, as you gained XP and ascended in monkly stature, you got access to more goodies, such as an expanded set of themes. It'll increase the incentive to be active in the community and, hey, everyone loves small prizes and milestones.

    I like the idea. But I would also like to see some combinations of colors like (blue and black) and (red and black). I agree also that green would be another good color to add.

      Combos sound sweet. Maybe do like a customizable one where you can pick text color and shading color.

    What's wrong with writing your own theme using CSS? Everything can be customised that way.
