    New themes/skins & header is Live!

    I have made a new -- well two actually -- theme for the Spring contest winner.



    This is the first time I've done this...

    The first is similar to the older ones, with a colorful background, etc. It's called Spring2012Colorful.
    The other is like the previous one, with a white background with a pop of color. It's called Spring2012Other.

    I used the newest computer monitor (LCD) to create these themes and on the (and my netbook, which I checked it on) there things look just fine. On our really old, dying monitor (not LCD) it looks dark. It's still read-able, view-able though.

    I can't change the whole theme for a few with a dark/old/dying monitor, but if people are consistently telling me something is off/too dark/too light/etc I will look into it and try to fix it. I want people to be happy with it, so if there's issues that aren't apparent on my 3 monitors, please let me know!

    I hope you all enjoy the themes. I wanted to have nice, warm and sunny like colors rather than black, etc.

    If you want to make sure you have this or the other version of the theme as your main one, just go into your User CP and check it in the options area.

    The old theme will still be available for those that want to use it, btw.



    Let me know your thoughts. Though don't be too harsh

    It looks great to me Agaliha... And I have an older monitor so it doesn't look dark on my monitor at all! Love the banner and the color combination, awesome!

    The colors are purdy... I can't see the MW logo pic at top left, but I'm at work so I'll look again once I'm home and logged on.

    The new skin is colorful and pretty, but I was glad to see that we have a choice, and I changed it back to the previous one with the gorgeous graphic on top in teal and purple, my favorite colors.

    Yeah, good move to provide options. That yellow is too loud for my personal tastes.

    I like the warm golden colours. Unfortunately though, I think the top background picture where it has the forum's logo is too babylike.
