Public Beta Theme: Swift (in General)
December 21 2005 11:22 PM EST
Hey everyone, new theme. Swift
Help me make it fantabulous =D. I actually created this theme a while ago, just never put it to use. I was preoccupied with another theme that gave me trouble (and it was a commissioned one too), which I ended up giving up on. This one came out pretty well though.

i tried it .... it works well with Firefox's Silver theme...and window's silver color template background. Nice!

Nice clean theme, it is a little light on the eyes. Maybe some darker contrasting colors?
December 21 2005 11:37 PM EST
Matrim, I agree. After using PsionicBlue for so long, this was like... woah, my screen feels a little brighter today.
December 22 2005 12:03 AM EST
Alright, the overall coloring is a tiny bit darker now. Still bright compared to most skins, but use it a day or two and you'll get used to it :). Hopefully sooner than that, of course.

you sure you don't want to help re-CSS CB? :)
December 22 2005 12:33 AM EST
Haha. Well, I'd be glad to, but I'm not familiar with the CVS stuff, and I don't want to end up bringing CB2 to an ending crash of doom... oh wait, I have a friend who knows this stuff who (barely) plays CB2... I'll ask him about it and all. I just need to know that if I accept this type of job, I won't let you down. Plus, I have to find a way to prevent old skins from displaying awkwardly after re-CSS-ing the code =D. Did any of that make sense?

Looks good, I will try it out for a bit. Nice work.
December 22 2005 1:13 AM EST
as for the old themes, writing a converter may be feasible.
otherwise, losing the less popular ones is a price worth paying, really.
December 22 2005 1:22 AM EST
Alrighty, I'll ponder on my decision after my calculus final tomorrow. (And while I'm studying for my final, my theme magically updates itself.)

"harry potter spell list"?
December 22 2005 1:42 AM EST
So, any bug reports or suggestions? Should we submit this to see if its worthy of becoming official? =D
December 22 2005 2:00 AM EST
doesn't seem to work well with IE..tried it out first time it said couldn't load the css..tried 2nd time everything but the drop down menu was black..=s
works in firefox though..^_^
December 22 2005 2:11 AM EST
CSS isn't that difficult (I think) :p
though having said that, that comes from a former HTML newbie :D
December 22 2005 2:24 AM EST
Man, that retarded IE... can't do anything right. I tried loading CB on it a few minutes ago, it said it couldn't load sidebar.tcl. Then when it did load after a few attempts, pretty much all but the opponent list was unreadable, blank.
Guess that's why MS stopped developing IE for mac. They couldn't get anything right, and with Safari taking over, they would have looked like fools... oh wait, they already are =P
December 22 2005 3:38 AM EST
Safari doesn't work worth a crap either ;)

I love it. The first real competition to modern mono. One tweak I'd ask you for, A:visited + A:link look very similar(at least on my screen), could you make them a bit more distinguishable?
December 22 2005 7:31 AM EST
Why would you need to have those 2 in a different color? I mean, i don't need to see which pages i have visited as i usually visit a lot of them :)
December 22 2005 8:07 AM EST
Hey, that looks nice...
though, could You put a bit more color in it ?
Im missing some blue touch ^^
Otherwise it's great
Mabye a combination of this one and Ultrablue would be great
I like it lots!! ^_^ It's like cake with purple sprinkles....=q** mmmm

Shade: Forum threads...
December 22 2005 12:11 PM EST
Ahh yes, forum threads, good idea indeed :)
nice Job, I almost want to switch from MM...
December 23 2005 8:17 PM EST
Okay everyone, I made some subtle changes to the link colors. They're more "colorful" now, and the coloring on visited versus non-visited links is more distinct.
Suggestions/comments? What needs to be done before I submit this to Jon?

I'm using IE 6.0 on Windows Xp, and the background img doesn't seem to load, because it's just black. LOL. The image of the theme looks nice though. :)
December 24 2005 1:37 AM EST
Anyone have any clue why IE6 is acting up?
December 24 2005 1:42 AM EST
You mean other than the fact that microcrap touched it? Sry no idea then.
December 24 2005 1:45 AM EST
Yes, other than that :)
December 24 2005 7:39 PM EST
All right then, since I've received no response to my previous posts, I have asked Jonathan if the theme is ready and worthy to be "official".
December 25 2005 1:58 PM EST
It is known that the IE has some problems with png images...
