Why cant we get those now?

Zenai [Ministry of Pain] February 28 2013 3:36 AM EST

Correct me if I am wrong anyone but if I remember right is was because all of the separate themes were causing server load errors. Also this was before we got the shiny new server so I am now wondering the same thing SHC.

A while back, Jon and I were rewriting the HTML for CB to better support custom themes. At some point, Jon decided it was taking too long and pulled theme support in light of new developments.

hmmm well not anything big in the way of new development so maybe something visual for the ppl left? Not trying to push you into something you may not want to do but if you have the capability and NS is willing hell I would scratch up some cash to pay you for something like this bro!

This is just a temporary personal project. I don't really see myself committing too much time into this. Perhaps unless I see the game really take off.

Anyways, for anyone who's interested in trying my skin as I screw around with it, you can! You just have to install a plug-in, then install the skin. I've just revamped the forums so it's a bit easier to read and slightly more compact.

Plug-in for Firefox Users

Plug-in for Chrome Users

Get the skin here!

Just a warning, it's a little weird in Firefox =P. Guess they interpret CSS differently. Bah!

The main font has a very Comic Sans feel to it.

Anything for mobile users that has Opera or Dolphin?

I use Stylish, been using it for a while. If I'm not mistaken I think there are different Themes available in the wiki somewhere. Pretty sure that's where I got the Monochrome CB theme I use most of the time.

nvm this is how I found them.. it was via stylish

Dunno about the rest of you but on my phone it looks like CB is getting a bit of a facelift. Look under the stats section of the home page. User & Clan Statistics and under seem to have a update theme in comparison to everything else. Thanks for whoever it popping this off it looks good!
