You just want board graphics and buttons in black and white? If so, i'll pm you my email addy. For a lo-fi version, why not change the buttons to text links?

Since come of those will be semi hard to make into text for example are boarders :P as well as a pic can be this big

|¨¨¨¨|
|¨¨¨¨|
¨¨¨¨¨

But text is big and long so that pic would look like this

"new post"



Which doesn't work to well

Also besides being black and white maybe making them a bit smaller and since they are black and white they load faster(those are 2 fastest loading colors followed by blues)

Like this: Image
It's only 513 bytes, instead of 1627 bytes of the original image.
Reduced to 16 colours, and size reduced to 80%

You'd need 2 colour logos really before converting to black and white - I converted the original "new topic" image and you couldn't read it properly (the "topic" vanished!)
