Any chance you're working on getting some skins/themes for the forums?

The 'Gates Default' don't cut it for some of us old-timers.  :P

Yes, the admins have been working on them.  Hopefully we'll have some changes made soon.

Better though to launch ugly and actually be here! (Damn, never thought I'd hear myself say that)

Heh... Reminds me of when Cap first put out Shadowland in Beta. Ugly as a SINner off his soykaf.

Of course, then Slamm-0! fraggin' vandalized the damn thing. We were pulling virtual cartoon wabbits out of the iconographs for MONTHS...

Would it be easy enough just to install a basic one from the SMF CBT forums? Not everyone plays both games but it couldnt hurt to pretty this place up a bit in the mean time.

How about a main Shadowrun one and maybe a different one for Missions??

hehe, Bull brought that up... we're still investigating that option.  Although it might take a bit more than CSS magic to do.

Any word on this? The bright white and light blue gray just don't say "Shadowrun" to me.

Please, whatever you do, don't take the bright theme away. Reading dumpshock, as fun as it is, is just painful in a brightly lit room...

When I look at skins, what I tend to like are black borders but white backgrounds for text. I like dark accents for a forum, but not dark domination, if that makes sense.

It does. For Shadowrun forums I like themes that set a dark mood... not kick me in the face with steelplated darkness.

So the css I sent wasn't light enough... ;)

Still playing around with the demo site with creating a theme. It's... interesting, how it works.

I like the Flagrant skin/theme here and am using it at present.

Nicely dark, gray-black-red is a cool combo (even though it looks more like CP than SR)
