Default Theme Contest?

This is a contest idea. Who can design the best theme for the forums. Winner gets there theme published. It would be fun for the creators and give us one more theme to choose from.

Default Re: Theme Contest?

When it comes to themes, we are going with a different approach. We are keeping the same layout over each theme but using different colors via CSS. We are going to get your feedback as to which colors you would like to see and present you with a mockup, hopefully, so you can see what it looks like before it gets implemented. After that there will be a vote on the best color scheme and the one that wins gets implemented along with a light and dark version like we had previously. So there will be 3 themes in total.

Light
Dark
Member Voted Color

This way the members can have a skin they like and we can keep the layout the same.

It might be up to a week if not more before we implement skins or anything else. You have to give us time to get the kinks worked out of the update and so on. It is already a work in progress. We have Baez developing a skin, and as far as i know there will be 2 versions of it as well. The option for the member skin was brought up and it will be presented when we feel we can do it right for everyone. So please be patient. We are working as fast as we can and as hard as we can to get everything done and done right. Not like the last major update we did to the forum software.

I just ask that you give us a week or 2 before you start to harp on us about the skins. We know and we are going to get it done. We are not going through these changes cause we want to. We are doing it to show you that we do care about your input and we want to make this site better for everyone. All good things take time to get it right.
