Not real happy with the pink for O.P. and green for "my posts", too much of a discord...

I would say changing the look is fine as long as you make it simpler and cleaner rather than more complex and cluttered. I think it would be possible, with skilled design, to make the site look more modern, easier to read and more professional by making it simpler and messing around a bit with typography and CSS.
imho, there is too much whitespace in short posts due to the 3 button images in the left pane. (user profile, sticky mail, and print msg) Here is where some of that new-fangled jQuery stuff can come in handy with "show tools" to click on or something which shows the 3 buttons.
