If you're not a fan of the colour scheme for the new forums, and you use Chrome, have a look at the Stylebot extension for chrome, which allows you to manually change all colouring and such on the page quite easily.
Its quick and easy to do, and should save you from the insane amounts of white until they get a few more styles made up.
(The page load speed is a heck of a lot better now!)
