Yes, absolutely. The ability to make Forems more distinct is necessary to provide character to the ecosystem.

There are difficulties with how much freedom we can/want to provide while also allowing the system to continuously evolve.

We have one core style option with the main brand color which affects links/etc. In order to provide more distinction it's probably a matter of baby steps to add to the customization interface. It would be good to ship this soon to give folks something new they can see.

Yeah, definitely. More and more communities using Forem will lead to a situation with several instances looking alike. Setting up a more nuanced customization interface to change style themes and the like will be a huge feature for more communities adopting Forem.
