I want YOUR input on the forum style!

Postby Sneke_Eyez » Fri Apr 26, 2013 1:48 pm

Alright, the "skin" we've got on the forum software now is just what it originally came with, which is nice, but I am not overjoyed with it.

phpBB is an easily skinnable forum, with many "styles" having been created for it.
I am interested to hear what the members would like to see for a forum skin. We only get to choose one, I know some other software packages allow you to choose multiple skins, multiple colors, etc, but that isn't an option with phpBB.

So if you'd like to see what options are out there, check out this link:
http://www.phpbb3styles.net/db/?sid=667 ... f5c7e5b67b

I'd really prefer if people could keep to those specific styles, as they have been approved by the makers of phpBB and are set to work properly with our version of the software.

Personally, I like this blue and black style here, called, AcidTech:

The colors just seem very Mopar to me, which I think works well.

I very nearly installed it on the forums before I finished setting them up, but I would rather have your input.

So, do you like the stock skin style? Do you like the AcidTech style? Is there another style you prefer?
Please let me know!

Something like Absolution? A skin that would go well with the blue Mopar M logo.

Dunno if Absolution is my favorite, but I certainly don't dislike it.

Do people generally prefer white backgrounds with black text or black backgrounds with white text?

Whatever will show up easier on a phone. Seems like I rarely use our PC these days.

Well that probably won't go well with the Mass Mopar logo. :oops:

Maybe something Mopar color related. Plum Crazy, Sublime, Hemi Orange...

The problem with a more off the wall colored skin is that there's always someone who doesn't like it. Someone who doesn't like orange, purple, pink, green, whatever.
Usually I find that blue and black or blue and white, white and red or black and red combos are acceptable to most people, but the reception to my Plum Crazy Purple Skin was not good on LHForums (but I leave it on there because I love it and use it!).
I suppose if you guys wanted to blaze our own trail and go with a more polarizing color, we could do it...
