New Skin

Oct 31 2006, 11:21 PM


I have been working for a couple of days on this new skin, I have been wanting to make a white, fresh new style for the site for a while now.

I've been with the old black skin for the past two years or so, maybe more, and I thought it'd be great to do something new. biggrin.gif This is the first time I've ever really had a white default skin, too, in the entire site history.

Also, please give a thanks to my brother, Jeff, without him this skin wouldn't look half as cool as it does. He did all the images himself, especially touching up the gradients and new posts marker.

Anyway, I know the skin is not perfect yet and probably has a bug here or there. If you find anything please report it here. Also, give me feedback on the skin; try it for a good while and see how you like it. I understand that the first reaction going from a dark skin to one like this can be a little tough, but please give it a chance biggrin.gif

I also know that there's probably going to be some people who just hate this skin no matter what. I will get the PHPQA skin added as an optional skin in a few days.

One final thing, you've probably noticed instantly. Where are the name colors? They're all still stored on this forum, on a wrapper copy. But when I put them on this new style, not all of the name colors looked very good anymore. This doesn't mean death to name colors; but you guys might want to pick out some new ones that won't look invisible or hard to read on this new skin. Test name colors if you want by just posting a new thread in spam or something.

Comments, suggestions, questions, feedback, etc all appreciated, post here about it. Thank you.
