Not a big deal, but i certainly think we need some new skins.

Right now, there's "default" and "dusty green."

I use dustygreen so that I can verify easily that I'm logged in just by looking at the screen, even from 15 feet away.

But i seriously think we should get some different skins. Not a priority, but please, keep it in mind.

I am officially a huge fan on the skin that is used at these forums, as it is simple, elegant, and modern. I'm not sure if that's doable with PHPBB, since its Invision Power Board, but I would love it if SCU had a skin like that.

Another reason why I like it so much is that emphasized 'search' key. >.>

The font used on that page is 'Segoe UI', the font for Windows Vista, if anyone needed to know.

Anyway, I guess more skins would be cool. The skins I currently am into are 'BBTech' and 'AcidTech', both in the Hi-Tech section at phpBB.com.

If by that you mean 'utterly eyeburning', then sure.

Tsk tsk - that's just your opinion. I think that one looks alright, but then again I'm not a big fan of the way most InvisionFree forums look. I myself quite like the standard "charcoal" skin SCU has, but I do think that having a few more choices would be a great addition to the site.

I think the standard charcoal colored froums here are the best of what I've seen. I don't like the white-clolored ones....it seems too plain.
I guess it would depend on the alternative choices...

Charcoal is OK, but boring. I'd like something simple and light, a cream colour or something. The grey is drab.

Yeah definetly New skins would be appreciated. Brighter, darker, anything new. Maybe even multiple skins so we can have choice and not complian on the Drab old ones.

More skins = more MODding for PE. <_<

Up to Millz really though, although he has other tasks for me that he still hasn't replied to my PM's about. Wink

Well, If anything gets considered, I've been looking at a couple of skins. A little editing may be called fore here and there, but the bulk of it looks good.

http://www.phpbbstyles.com/viewtopic.php?t=1451 There's a selection of colors available for this style.
http://www.phpbbstyles.com/viewtopic.php?t=10252 This one's pretty good, the Tiger color reminds me of MP:Hunters

I really don't like either skin. Artemis, I found to monotonous and bland, even with the recolours. We've already got a grey skin, and I really don't think we need another. In the second, I found it to be too dark, and any other colours stood out harshly from it. The forums I posted, had wonderful complimenting colours with a glass effect to add depth. Aside from KP, you wouldn't burn your eyes out looking at it.

I'm, personally, a huge fan of DustyGreen. I think we should make that the new default, but add on some more Metroid-based decor.

Or not. I just love this theme that much. Also, could someone PM me the javascript for that nav bar? I wanna put it up on my board.

Can anyone tell me why it's even called dusty green? It's not even green. Sweat
