I posted basically as soon as I knew.

Glad you all managed to survive for the week though- thanks for the dozen or so concerned emails <!--emo&:D-->Image<!--endemo-->

If you go to 'My Controls', under 'Skins & Languages' you should see a couple more skins too choose from. Haven't quite finished modding them (i.e. adding the Strangeways banner), but 'Orange Dreams' looks pretty darn nice.

The 'Boo' skin is using a slightly modified forum banner. Lemme know if it looks alright.

Have you made them yourself, or do you just download them or what? <!--emo&:blink:-->Image<!--endemo-->

Downloaded, free from an IPB community. Very simple to do, so I'll add a few and y'all can use whichever you like.

Okay, should be Topic Rating facility at the bottom of every thread. Only the default skin at the moment. If people could try this, let me know if there are any problems.

I think the avatar/info should be on the left, the right seems so.......weird!

Nice improvements though. <!--emo&:B-->Image<!--endemo-->

I agree, im so disorientated! The new skin (is that the right name?) reminds me of itunes a bit. Like it.

It is a Mac based theme. I'd be interested as to which of the four you think should be the default, though.

Born and raised in an English reading society, my eyes naturally drift to the left of the page before travelling to the right. In such a fashion, when I read posts now I don't know who is saying them until I am done with the first line. That is probably what is disorienting everybody

Is THAT the best you can do ?

Point taken. I've edited the templates so that it's using the default IPB templates- this means that the rating system seems to be working okay, but it could mean there are some little faults around the place. Please make me aware if this is the case.
