Here is how you may change the individual appearance of themes on this site:

Thought I'd pass along this info that bluebird sent to me if the background makes it hard to read.  I posted it on another thread, but figured more people would see it on a new thread:

Go to profile, account settings, modify account settings, select modify profile, look and the curve theme....the public display will stilll be black/grey, but your logged in view will be easier to read.
