So guys Sozin needed a thread design, and I have never made one so I thought I'd make one for him. It helped me practice and learn about it.
graphicx helped see my mistakes and improve the design. I do not want people rating my design. Just leave your opinions. I know this is very simple.
This is my first try, only reference I took was for bitcoin and paypal box. Thank you guys :

The font is good for titles, yet does not seem to work with main text. Also play with different elements to make it look more interesting, right now it looks boring to me.

I have used same font everywhere except for the copyright. And by elements can elaborate what do you mean, it will be helpful as I am noob here.
Thanks in Advance.

There are a lot of good free to use / free for commercial use fonts, here is a good source for those http://www.fontsquirrel.com
Regarding the elements, what you can try is put the text into more interesting. Bold for important parts of the text or titles, italic for less important parts or description. Also could use more pictures to illustrate the thing, it will help with making the whole thread design look more full and fill those blanks. You can get very creative with different layouts as well, does not have to be 1 column text all over it. Look around for different thread designs, find elements from each one you like. Keep note of those any try putting it all together in one thread design. It will take a lot of tries before it will start looking good, simply keep going and start all over again if needed. You might have to redo the whole thing about 4 times which is good since every time you will discover a way to do something better or different.
Feel free to PM me your Skype if you feel like you could use some advice from me in the future as well. I'll gladly provide feedback or advice when possible.
