Its the opposite of what you want in a forum.

A forum needs to have a nice inviting feel to it.

Even I can sense when I have the choice of posting something elsewhere vs here it comes much easier to me to post elsewhere it looks more inviting.

As long as that default skin exists any ad campaign will have little effect.
Forums are about encouraging posting.

Everything facet of a forums design needs to support that line of effort. ..
and the dark skin does not support that.

A nice camo pattern maybe (not a real dark one) say ATACS FG or some such would make an excellent skin.

Warm + lots of green (perceived by the human brain as a friendly color)
Where are you getting all this info? I understand that some people have different tastes as in having a white background rather then a dark background. I hear about it all the time with all my other forums and members. When I do decide to change the forum to XF, it will have 2 different color schemes, light and dark. To please everyone.
