Went through phbb33 styles database, ProSatin Gray (Demo) one I liked at all... and I didn't particularly like it.



I would just like less white everywhere and instead a light grey, nothing too dark.


I really do like that one, that one for sure should be added.



We need green skins!

I wouldn't want a premade one.



If we can use these skins for ideas then great, but I think the forum needs a group of designers and coders who can make each skin tailored for forum.tip.it

Unless it was removed, PHPBB3 comes with subsilver2 as a default. All an Admin needs to do is click Install and Activate :)



I, personally, would like to see the same colors around. I used a red style last forum, so I'd like to see a red one. Also green, black, and something related to Chronicals. Then we could work on some different ones. I don't mind which ones they are, but I'd like the colors on them to be relatively similar.

Agreed With Fed, SubSilver Is usually the only Forum 'Skin' That I use on any forum. It may be originial, but It's easier to understand rather than somthing that's Multi-Colored and Hard to understand. :lol:

My biggest complaint would be that god awful "phpbb3" thats sitting right where the tip.it logo was. Changing that would might make the baby blue color scheme a little more bearable.



If your going to keep the blue/white thing as you theme like the old forums (which had many styles, but blue/white was defult), then maybe you could atleast darken the blue a little bit? The light blue is actualy making it hard to see becuase there is not enough contrast (it one step above cyan which would be nearly as bad as yellow on white). That and I dont like the color baby blue on principle.



Maybe you could add Code Black which is really easy to see.



Also, Blue Moon is fairly similar to the current style but with a darker blue.



The other thing is that all the old smilies look like there sqished for some reason. Except for the drooling one.



One other thing. Is there ANYTHING that can be done about the new quote box. Seriously, the person who designed that needs to re think the design. Aside from being pink, those quotation marks are really driving me nuts.

Agree, a homemade style would be great. When I was looking through all the premade ones none of them seems to scream tip.it.

Meh I don't think any of the old ones screamed Tip.It very well either. :| A homemade one could be nice for some people, but tip.it would have to get suggestions from the community and they'd end up doing so many things it might not even look as good as we hope. Right now I'm just happy that the forum is up and that it is functional. The current theme is fine for me.



(and @ whoever said the smilies looked like aliens, you have to admit the laughing one looks better :lol:)

I'm agreed 100% on the homemade theme. The only two anomalies that I'd have with it are that it would have to flow with the design of the main site, and be appealing to look at on a consistent basis. Some people prefer bright themes, others (like myself) prefer themes that don't introduce so much eye irritation. Perhaps a poll should be had, listing 7-10 premade themes, and 2-5 homemade themes, and ask the community which one they genuinely prefer (as default).



I'll simply stand by a new, homemade skin, and at the same time, hope/suggest a similar theme for the main site can be used.

I really liked how the old forum had a nice selection of premade ones. It gave everybody a chance to get used to one that suited their eyes and such.



Personally, I was a big fan of the black and white, so anything not too bright and preferably dark is great in my opinion.

Please can we find a good old style that is close to the one that made PHBB2 look old and rustic? That was my favorite, and I was on that style for oh, pretty much everyday that I was on Tip.it. Starting day 1 I chose that style, I'm dieing without it, honestly.





EDIT: Chronicles was the name. Save it try to port it to PHBB3? I would be eternally grateful.

Out of the ones I've seen on here so far, I'd have to say that my favorite is "Springtime" (check the first post on this page). I like the combination of light brown/tan and green.



Also, the idea for home-made skins is great, but I don't think that, should the admins (or whoever decides on new skins) find a pre-made skin that they like, they should turn it down just because it wasn't made just for TIF.
