As it stands, the default skin for these forums is just okay. If there is an option to change skins, I can't find it under my user preferences.

I would be willing to rework and improve everything about it on my spare time, just so that I can look at something nicer for hours a day.
I don't have any experience with skinning Simple Machines Forums, but there's lots of resources online, and, I mean, how hard can it be?
Basically, I would just need a copy of the default skin, which can be made by installing a new copy skin through the admin panels.

An updated look might help breathe some more life into the forums too! (It won't. But it'll be nicer to look at with the same amount of breath)

Any suggestions for look and layout changes from the community would be welcome.
And if that doesn't work, try focal meditation.

I like the look (easy on the eyes) but adding some dynamic color patterns around the frames with some sigils or psionic symbols might be intriguing, but I am quite okay with the current look.
