Style ...

#1 Post by PixieGrl » October 18th, 2004, 4:32 am

I love the planet and space theme... is there a possibility of getting a blue planet/theme at some point?

Although the black/orange is very Halloween-y! :)

Looks great guys! Congratulations!

Fawkes has said there are lots of things he would like to do with skins, the problem is finding the time. As you can imagen setting the place up has been a bit of a crazy rush, and there are always a tone of nmodifications to do on opening day. It will come with time :D

And much like Martha Stewart's new wardrobe, it goes very well with the fall foliage outside. (thumbs up)

*tries it for thirty seconds*

Nicely done. I'm sticking with Solaris myself - more to my taste - but one of the things I loved about the old Terran was the choice of skins, so I'm glad it's here.

I'm sticking to Solaris as well, but I tried it and it looked very nice, the colours are soothing to the eyes... :shifty:

I like blue, so I think I'll keep using it. It's just going to take me a while to get used to where the quote buttons are.

One question: are other styles in the works?

Not at the moment, although now I know how phpBB styles work, I can produce them faster if there is demand.

Well, here's the thing: I love the Solaris style, but late at night it becomes sort of heavy on the eye...
Do you think you could make a theme (when and if you have the time) -exactly- like Solaris, only with a shade of light-blue instead of the orange?

:angel:

Edited to add: I think the colour that has the HTML code #4040FF would look great on the black and together with the white...

:angel: :angel: :angel:

Double edit: Or #436afc

Please don't kill me, I'm still young... :angel:

My only real complaint about the blue moon style is the font size is much larger compared to the Solaris one. Not that it's a problem late at night when your eyes aren't able to focus so well, it still feels off. Any way to shrink the size down some?

The theme doesn't really set a font size--it uses your browser's default for most things.
