I created this separate thread to discuss specifically on themes, and so any dialogue about this wouldn't get lost in a contest thread. As most of you know, I'm entering in Jon's re-Imagine CB! contest. Some of you have already seen my BattleTech theme applied to my new code, as well as my newest theme dubbed Jet.
I'm only going to make two more themes, a default theme and another more "robust" theme. Why only two more? Well, first off, I have to have a default theme anyways. Secondly, I want to do even more experimentation with the theme engine I created. However, I'm only one among many (there's many, right?) contestants, and it would be utterly useless if I created 324587 themes but didn't win. Anyways, I would like your opinions.
What should the default theme look like? Similar to what the default theme new, with a red/gray color scheme?
Now, the more robust theme. Today in art class (oh, how I dread that class), I sketched a mockup World of WarCraft (or World of CarnageBlender, if you will) theme, and I think it'll turn out nicely. Of course, I'm open to more ideas. I previously had one commission to make a paladin-like theme, which I ended up giving up on because the current theming engine is just too restrictive, though I could easily do it now. I can make virtually any type of theme you guys want.
So, throw up your ideas. I will probably do my World of CB theme unless I find another idea I like.
Have fun =D
