Skins

Post by Omphalos »

I have added a bunch of skins today. Feel free to go to your profile page and browse them under the "board styles" button at the bottom.

Let me know if you want me to add something. Just be prepared to send me a .zip or a link.

Just curious, but you intend to leave the default as an option, right?

(I assume that Freak intends to do likewise on Jacurutu. I noticed him asking Irulan for assistance. That's cool...but her sig of 145KB is a bit worrying. ... )

It's no problem with the fast connection at work (oops) but a lot of pretty-pretty would be annoying from home.

(I think I've commented before about how heavy Worm's place is for me on the home machine. :( )

Absolutely subsilver will be left as the default. Id actually have to code to fix that, and I don't want to. You all can pick a theme and keep it local, AFAIAC. And I don't pay too any much attention to sig sizes, because the only person who let me know that it was a problem has turned sigs off locally. I am however looking into better banners, so we shall see what happens there. Ill keep it small though.

I tell you, with Worms, its those damn Google ads that take so long to load on mine. Everything goes quick, then it hits google.ads and slows to a crawl.

I like this DAJ Glass theme. Cant wait to find a cool image for a banner.

Yeah, I plan to leave the subsilver as the default. I've really just started playing with the themes.

Eventually I hope to have a few to chose from.

I like the Arcanian skin. The darker the background the better.

The Arkanian one is nice, but I'm going with Getaway for now. ;)

Sorry Mandy, was quite sick this weekend so I didnt get them up. I need to add some code to them too so that I can follow what is going on with Google Analytics, so probably next weekend at the earliest for those skins you want. I will get going on them though.

Is the issue with large sigs still OK for you?

That's alright Omph, no hurry. Hope you are feeling better.

The sigs are fine, I just adblock the ones that are huge. I don't know what I'm going to do if I ever have to go back to Internet Explorer!

Just a bump to let all the new users know that you can change the skin of the board by going to the "Board Style" line of your profile.

I kinda like the VereorLCars because it looks like Star Trek, but I also liked the first one (the aeolus) because I'm fond of blue.

And to show my computer naivity, I did not know we could change the skins. Thaks for this thread. I like learning something new.

I just downloaded some skins off the internet, and did not change them at all. What they give is what we get.
