Have a look at this forum for example. While I think this forum is a little bland, it is much cleaner and easier to read.
I am not sure if it is just because I am tired and have just chopped up 4 onions, but the various shades of red were a little unfriendly on the old eyes.

I agree with you though, you want to get the message across as quick and as easy as you can to the viewer. Everything else is fluff. I am not sure what the stats are today but years ago when I was developing websites (as a main job) they used to say that the average visitor takes 6 seconds before deciding to stay or go on a web page/site... you need to capture them as best you can in 6 seconds or you risk losing potential business.

I think the one major turn off I find with some forums is super massive signatures, especially animated (like every other gamers forum). One to two lines of plain text is preferable (or nothing).

heh... I've seen christian sites which look worse than that. They look like the developers were on LSD when they made the site. I'm totally talking about, like, the colours man. Though I guess if they believe in a god then what else could one expect?

There are some sites whose appearance is completely over the top: http://bit.ly/9C4T3
That is way better than a rickroll!
