Yes, but I clearly said it was my own.

Well, if you don't want to try your own skin, then you can't complain if not everything is exactly how you want it.

No, the problem is one person saying it's too bright, another it's too dark. Why not this color? Why not that color? The font is too light. The font is too curly. It's too boxy. It's too round. I seriously can't please anyone. I don't expect people to say that they like something if they don't, but people aren't just judging the overall skin. They're nitpicking every tiny little detail.

What the hell exactly do you want a few shades darker, Spirit?

that part was for Noin, but I mean the center part of the skin.

yes, i know you said that. it was surprising i guess, since there was no activity in here and suddenly you're making your own skin (yeah, yeah, i know it was a spontaneous decision and you didn't know it beforehand...)

why the hell would i make my own forum just to try out some skins? there has to be an easier way
and i'm not complaining, i'm stating my opinion >.>

look, i never said you have to please everyone. but if i look at the test skin, i can't help but notice the things that bother me. the overall skin is alright, but if i just say that, it doesn't really help you improve it, does it? i just think if a lot of people have a certain opinion about something, there has to be some truth in it, so stating it, can only help. obviously you're not supposed to change every little detail. there's a thing called compromise

and besides that, I think me and Noin are the only ones that really said anything. everyone else just didn't like the original buttons.

Well just as you other gfx people do with set requests, I felt like doing some gfx work today and just thought I might as well try doing a custom skin.

It IS the easier way. Making the forum takes like a minute, and then you can actually see what the admin pannel and customization is like. Otherwise, you're doing it blind.

I can't compromise cause even when everyone agrees on what they don't like, they don't agree on what they would like. So I have nothing to go off of.

The original buttons were from this forum, oddly enough.

Yea, they just didn't fit in with the new skin.

and besides that, all we said was that the font on the new buttons was wrong, that most of us couldn't see the first background(that one wasn't our fault), and I said you should darken the central part.

3 suggestions.

It's not a waste. It's a free hosting site. Besides, if you really want to try it out, just make a profile on the test forum I made and I'll make you an admin. Then you can just try using that one.

Well since everyone's saying different things, no.

You CAN'T darken the central part. That's the one thing you can't customize. It comes with the chosen skin, and you have to chose an entirely different skin to use a different central part.

Well that sucks. Anyway, I should go to sleep now. I have no other objections other than the button font.

Well its very bright. I personally always liked the darker themes.

See, And I KNOW Ghosty isn't gonna like the brightness.

addressed to Prisma:
Buttons are good enough
So is the text Font (Except for FAQ [The "Q" become unreadable. Maybe using a lowercase "FAq" or "F.A.Q." would look better])
So is the Text Color
So is Logo
The Background with the large Crisscross pattern is fine... doable... acceptable

Now I know, that you prefer light(bright) themes, so I am not going to complain about the "Gray field" .... but just saying... with the purple font theme, a much darker background would blend more than the current shades of gray and off-white combination. Though if you do make the background, black... then you will need to change the black text font into something brighter. Which if not white, would become a challenge as what to keep. I would prefer lime, neon-blue or teal, but that would most likely be quite inconvenient as a whole.

That's all for now. the other smaller things like the "black boxes" or the "section borders" could be looked at after the background color is finalized. Because as the color goes more towards black, they all will be affected.

well i've messed around with it for a bit, i did change a few things, but feel free to change them back
i did a few buttons with different fonts to see how they look, but since it's quite late, they're only basic stuff and i admit they look quite boring, after all we don't wan the forum to be completely black and white

so i'll definitely help if you want me to, just not tonight lol but i should have a few hours tomorrow and maybe on sunday to work on a few things

Is it like a scroll bar at the bottom of the page that allows me to change to the new skin similarly to the old forum?

Or is the new skin complete?

No, we're working on making one on a test forum page.

http://rpbskintest.forumotion.com/

Unfortunately, it doesn't seem possible to add multiple skins to one forum here.

It looks much better now~

But just a question: you leaving the buttons all with different fonts, or are you finalizing one font? If the latter, I vote for the Members button font~

I don't think blue buttons go with the colors though.

With the central part darkened now, the grey background all seems too monotone too. :/
