how bout yoursI hope you enjoyed my little pranks yesterday! I had a lot of fun planning them. I'll keep the bees skin up, but I will not be updating it. SO if you would like to have updates, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make sure you are not using that skin 24/7.
Well, Anrui, I officially present to you my first skin made specifically for our site! It's called HOW BOUT YOURS. You can find it in your profile > edit profile > settings > forum theme. You are more than welcome to choose between this one, BRAVE NEW WORLD, and reborn. The inverted reborn skin will be removed since we now have an actually-functioning dark skin.
I would like to know what you think about the skin! What do you like about it? What do you love about it? What do you dislike about it? What do you hate about it? PLEASE the more feedback, the better. I will not get offended if you have anything negative to say - how else will I learn what Anrui wants, after all? I may or may not change the skin based on your feedback, but I will certainly keep it in mind for the next skin I make (probably around the summer time).
Likewise, if you have any issues with the skin - you can't read something or something isn't showing up - please tell me! Things that inhibit you from using the site are things that I
wantneed to know about so that I can fix them. Screenshots are usually very helpful, and also let me know which browser you're using, especially if it's different than chrome. (Screen resolution would be wonderful as well). I've been beta-testing this skin for about a week or so and have edited a few templates and whatnot, but please let me know if I missed anything!
please tag @ jello with any questions, concerns, or comments! This will be made an announcement for about a month or so, but after that any members (new or old) are welcome to still chime in. Like I said, I want feedback from anyone.new mini-profile fields
in our new mini-profile, you have three more fields to fill in. You can find these in your profile > edit profile > personal.
As with the other skin, you have your application link and your pc link. These two links are necessary - please fill them in if you haven't already! I also added in a link for your plotter. This one isn't necessary, and it won't effect the mini-profiles on any of the other skins.
The other two fields work together. Where it says "Your Choice Link" you can enter in any link you choose - on site or off site (please keep it appropriate though). Where it says "Your Choice Name" you can enter in what you want that link to be labeled as. I recommend keeping it short, i.e. "shop" "music" "email" etc. If you have any questions about this, please let me know!mobile
i have had on and off success with this skin on mobile. I have an iphone 6s and I use chrome as a browser. At first, I couldn't get the main hover up at the top to work (which is why I have those links outside of it). Now that I've played with it a bunch, they work just fine. The only other issue I can find is that when you create a thread, it makes the forum width much smaller... I might be sending in an ask to support about that bc I have no idea why it would only do it then.
I also have a droid tablet, which I use chrome on. I can actually get the hovers working perfectly and without issue. However I still have issues with creating a new thread.
If you share any of these issues, let me know. If you have other issues, let me know!default???
so as you can see, I went ahead and put a poll up for this thread. It doesn't expire so you can vote at any time. basically, I never really feel my skins are good enough to use as a default skin, but I also know that I'm very critical when it comes to my own stuff. so I figured I'd let y'all decide.
some things to consider when you're voting:
- this is the first thing guests - potential members - see;
- is it aesthetically pleasing?
- does it relate to the theme/feel of the site?
- is it functional?
- does it function on mobile?
- does it give off a good first impression?
If there's something else you think we should think about before voting, feel free to add that in as well! reborn is not an option for voting, as that is a skin that I made for the new mysste and just reworked for anrui as well.
