I've noticed that some of the other SE sites have moved away from the "default" theme that DIY is now on. I think that as we grow, we should create our own theme as well. Any suggestions for what this should contain?

You get a theme when you graduate from public beta. We're still waiting on a huge traffic jump to get the green light.

I think the existing theme is pretty close to what I would choose. I like how it resembles a blueprint (thanks to the graph paper background). Just build it up a little bit so it's distinct from the beta theme, dotted lines, callouts, etc. Definitely like the "Under Construction" feel.
