I use the default one (SubSilver I believe).

Actually, the default one is now skymiles red, which is the one I use. Subsilver was the old default until about 6 months ago.

I logged on in my school library, and it was using the SubSilver skin.

Well anyways, I just switched to SkySmiles again. The banner is kind of broken on top, it's just plain black. Maybe it's just me?

Pudge, what if I make a banner for this skin, will you use it? I'm thinking a simple one with a couple players in it maybe a rotation? And it says 'FALCFANS' across of it, and it'll be a black background to make it look simple.

What browser are you using. I use FireFox almost exclusively, so this site is designed to look good in Firefox, so it may look weird when using IE.

But be my guest. Graphic design is a real pain in my butt.

Okay, I'll give it a try tonight or whenever I have free time this week. So I don't know how to do the rotating players thing, unless you know how to? Like the one in the home page where the players on the top right change every time you refresh the page. I was thinking something like that but with newer players. Tell me if you want it to be like that or if you just want one .JPEG for the banner. (Any particular player that you'd like?)

And all the computers in my school use Firefox as their default browser.

I'm not sure these were how I wanted them to look. They look simple, but I think they look too simple, but I think they're better (no offense) than the ones we have now. But if I have time over the weekend, I'd like to give it another go if you guys don't like these.

Version 1:

Version 2:

EDIT: Actually, I'd prefer the banner to be shorter in terms of height. So if you guys determine you want to use one of those banners, can I shrink it a bit?

I like the banners.

I'm looking into what mods I can add to the forum to make it a rotating banner. I don't think I can just copy and paste the javascript code from the front page to the forums and it work the way it's supposed to.

Simple solution, assuming the banners will be the same dimensions would be to make it a single .gif image that cycles through them. If you don't have any way of doing that, just email them to me and I can set that up for you. I know we had problems with animated images on the signatures, so that could be something to consider, also.

That may eventually be the way to go Happ. I haven't delved too deep yet in the phpBB mods yet, but I plan on doing it this weekend. BUt I think there should be a mod available for a rotating banner that changes everytime the page is loaded or refreshed.

Do you guys want me to message my good ol' friend Mozzie from the AFMB to see if he can make us a banner?

He said he'll take a stab at it, but he'd like to know what size?

Well I just decided to tell him 'any size' would be good, is that okay? I was thinking we should just let him do his thing on that banner, and if we need to, we can just 'redesign' whatever we need to around that banner.

That was good advice. Yeah, size doesn't matter.

That's what she said. :lol:

About 87 times better than what I can do. I'll try to add the banners this week to the skymiles red template. One night this week, I'll tinker with it when the site traffic is down.

You don't have to add my banner. You can just add Mozzie's on top. Mine is bad.

I'm going to add it regardless of your feelings Libid, the more the merrier

If you use the skymiles red style, you should notice that the banner at the top now rotates everytime you refresh the page.

I decided to switch over to the mainly black layout... forget what it's called, but it looks a lot better than it was when I first tried it.

And the default layout is still SubSilver... tried it in both browsers, and both at home and in school and it's still like that. Not a big deal, but just letting you know.

Yeah, I don't know what the deal it is with that. Once you sign it, it switches over.

I'm sure it's something funky with the code and probably all I'd need to do is change 1 or 2 lines of code, but I'm too lazy to really sit there and go through it. It's not that big a deal IMO.

I'm loving the "RedSilver" layout. When was it added? It should be the default skin. :P

I added it a few weeks ago, but it seemed a little to "Tampa-ish" so I didn't really say anything about it. :P

Although I have changed what the default template is, for anybody that is visiting the site, they always see the "subsilver" style instead of whatever the default is. I don't know why this is but I tested it briefly today (if you were visiting the site a few minutes ago and was wondering why it looked so weird for about 20 seconds, that's why), and figured the only way I can get the site to appear as the default skin/style is if I mark the board setting that overrides users chosen skin.

So I'm wondering how opposed are people to having their choice of board skin overridden?
