    Silver skin is now 'live' and the default

    News isn't finished yet, that stuff is just a placeholder and there's a problem with long thread titles overlapping behind the search box but other than that, everything should be good to go.

    DN is the one who designed this whole thing, from the images to the placement of the elements. All I did was implement the design, so all kudos go to DN.

    Post here with your comments/suggestions/questions. Thanks for bearing with us while we got this done.

    Much more appealing than the old skin, thank you.

    Wow, I refreshed the page and thought I was on a different website!

    Very well designed, just like the website. Aesthetics pwn!

    It's nice, but all the white kills my eyes. You should probably consider making an alternate darker based skin.

    One is already planned. I'll leave it up to DN if he wants to reveal any details.

    I like it, which is odd seeing how usually I hate light blue and whites together. Only suggestion I can make is merging the forum/website/faq/user stuff bar with main logo to save up some space.

    For now, you can revert to old skin by going to Settings -> General Settings -> Forum Skin and setting it to default style. It's still light, but less heavy on eyes.

    Hey Zero,

    I like it alot but I have a couple of nitpicks:

    1. The header bar isn't linked... why? My urge to click Pokemon Online to go to the site is strong haha.
    2. New Group Messages links is gone.... although I'd prefer if it were just merged with new posts, I use that feature alot.

    Well they couldn't be 'merged' as there is no room anywhere on the navigation area for anything of that size. I will see what DN thinks about adding a simple logo (with text) to where the smaller Lugia is now and getting rid of the banner altogether. I don't think he'll like it but now someone else has mentioned it (I did too) maybe he'll consider it.


    1. fixed
    2. I just switched to the default skin and couldn't find that link anywhere. I don't think I've ever seen it. Can you post the link? As for merging it with the new posts search, you'd have to talk to vBulletin (Jelsoft) about that. ;)

    Thanks, that link helped me find what you were talking about.

    I changed the Groups link to a Community dropdown which has the Groups and New Group Messages links in the dropdown menu. Will that do?

    Let me know if there are any problems or if you guys have any other suggestions.

    Tell me what you want written on the sig, what pokemon you want on it, what kind of backgorund you want, etc etc etc.

    And yes, I know the sun is in the background and the shadows hit the ground behind them, imagine the sun as being above them.

    NOT GOOD 'NUFF. COME BACK WHEN YOU GRASP 'ASPECT' NUB.
    No, but really I think it's cool, but I just don't like pictures in my sig.

    Yep, pretty satisfied with my corny one liner.

    And a dark background with lots of black

    Just so you know, recoloring pokemon, is time consuming, very.

    But here's him so far:

    Hi, I´d really like a sig like this, but i suck at anything associated with drawing, so i ask you.

    It should have a darkrai (this artwork, with G I R written under its left arm, from the top to the bottom, golden and in this font) a Jirachi (this artwork) a Latias and a Kingdra(official art), close together sized at around 500x100 with a dark blue/black-ish Mist/fog as the background and no clear frame (i hope you understand what i mean my english isnt perfect)

    Thanks in advance

    Um, hey, I'm not sure if it's too late to ask, but I have literally no idea how to make a sig, or anything like that, so would it be possible for you to design me one?

    I just wanted to ask before I rattled off a design for you to ignore :P

    Many thanks

    Mod can close this.
    I'll try to get to the one within the next week, but I've got other priorities atm and I need to reinstall my graphics software.

    Sorry about the delays, having to move to a new computer takes a while since I had about 100 programs on it. <.<
