Still considering it.

How about those skins? Are they options yet?

Chronicles and Getaway Green are up as options. They were so far out in the lead on the poll that I cranked them out.

Prodark and Glacier still need to be brought up to speed on our code additions. But I'm not seeing any big changes in the voting, so I'll get to those soon and dump the other three from our options ...

:salute:

Really? I would have thought you'd not think that way, it being your antithetical color and all ... :cheeky:

Okay ... ProDark and Glacier are up, though I have to figure out how to tweak the logo on those styles.

Is it possible to at least leave on the the 'generic' looking skins, like subsilver, in place as an option? I didn't see it in the lit of preferences.

Looks like I'm going to have to stop reading from work. :dontknow:

Hrm ... Well, I was going to go with just the top four votes, but if it's a serious issue, I could probably put one of the two back in.

New default skin looks very nice, but I reckon you should really lose the chatbox at top.

Glacier is rather good but:

- the post backgrounds suck (easy css change)
- the hover effect on the board index is overdone (ditto)
- a fluid rather than fixed width would be an advantage (ditto)
- new post/no new post indicators should be reversed as the dark "receding" image to indicate new posts is counterintuitive (simple image swap)
- it doesn't go with your animated logo at all.

For all round, easy on the eye, general use the green one is still the best In My Opinion despite its antiquated style.

I agree about the chatbox too, although it should be possible to drop the entire thing in a div with a clickable header controlled by a basic javascript routine. This would make the chatbox collapsible.

My order of preference of the votes I made:

Getaway Green
Chronicles
Glacier (a bit much like proSilver)

I've found several sites that are full of phpBB skins, but I especially like

http://demo.phpbb3styles.net/
http://www.phpbbhacks.com/stylesdemo/

You select a skin in the top frame, and it reskins the forum page in the bottom frame.

After thorough research (both in the field & out), numerous data compilations, serious soul-searching, deep knee-bends, a romantic candlelit dinner & some woowoo thrown in for good measure (you can never be too careful), I have finally come to this conclusion:


I prefer the prodark :confused2:
