I was planning on making a Koi the Kecleon-themed skin that would be pale greens and reds, but I could never figure out exactly what I'd have to give Kuno to make it happen.

Disclaimer that these are crude concept models meant only to demonstrate what I think would make for a nice or appealing pallet for some people. Obviously some of the letters in some of the examples below are impossibly difficult to read because of how certain color fields are interacting. This would be ironed out in a final draft.

Control. Black Smart



Exhibit A. Green-leaning Turquoise foreground on Black/Dark Gray background



Exhibit B. Deep Sky Blue foreground on Black/Dark Gray background



Exhibit C. Any sort of "peaches and cream"-esque color pallet, usu. involves pastel yellow and orange (as seen here, though it doesn't look quite right ... painfully bright, I want to say)



I've always loved the look of A and B, and I know people in the past have indicated that they thought B would be awesome too. As for C, I feel like this is a popular option for people who like the color pallet but I've somehow horribly botched it (it's so bright! @[email protected]) so I guess I'd say you should look to how other forums have implemented the style to see which shades work best together.

I would like a variant of B just with less black in it and more blue, but still keeps a basic feel.

Less black and more blue? You mean like UPN's default forum skin in late 1999, 2000, and early 2001? Possibly with the white replaced with black/dark gray but otherwise this?



Note: this is a BMGf skin inspired by the UPN skin, one which I just took a picture of. Had I known that they fucked up and put a vBulletin banner at the top -- that's Summer 2001 at the earliest, not 1999 as claimed -_-; -- I'd have just linked to ChaosRocket's archive.

Now I like b the most of all of those, because the others hurt my eyes after a while.

I still think a Canada themed skin is in order.

Do you happen to have a BMGF account? They made one for April fools, just putting that out there.

Now that's a good looking forum skin. I might actually post there now.

Bit late, but I'm pretty sure I haven't had the opportunity to post in one of these before so doing this anyway. Got a fair bit to say.

I joined just under 5 years ago, drawn here from SPPf's PASBL like so many others. Back then I was incredibly immature, self-important and just generally irritating (IIRC). So not a load has changed. I tried to blend into the community but I'm pretty sure this took far longer than I could have expected. Over the years, I grew surprisingly fond of the pixels and usernames representing the other members, even seeing some of them as "friends". This had turned a website I had only seen previously as a convenient means to take part in a forum-based game into a safe haven for me to flee to. It helped me get over some of my recent failures and has rebuilt my confidence both in humanity and my ability to communicate with said humanity. With that in mind, thanks to those of you that put up with me in my earlier years here.

Fast-forward to now and UPN is a crucial part of my life, whether or not I'm actually active. It remains, for the time being at least, the one place I can meet up with friends. It is my second home, so to speak, where things like "autism" and "epilepsy" don't feel so important. Even without the ASB, which is still where I spend most of my time, I'm not sure I can see myself leaving any time soon.

Lighter skins would be wonderful. We also need a union flag skin that periodically steals the data of non UK users

Yes, that would be great for me. Still dark and easy to read at night, but with a splash of color.

I think I missed UPN Day last year too, oops.

As I'm becoming more and more busy, I seem to have less motivation as well as time to spend on the Internet with Pogeymans. But you guys help to make it a fun time. Thanks.

For the people who want lighter skins, this is in the realm of "Duh!" questions but I figure it wouldn't hurt to ask: Should making sure that lighter text colors are readable be a high priority or not?

I'd say so. Speaking for myself, I'm not going to use any forum skin if the text is illegible, in the broadest possible sense.

Most definitely, we don't want a situation like Serebii has where half of the text colors aren't legible on some skins.

That is going to be unavoidable, I'm afraid. You can't possibly insist that Hana only design forum skins which use black, white, and dark gray for the post body background colors.

I am so pissed I missed this again.

That's six years of being unable to gain a colour.

GOD DANG.

I don't think colors were being handed out this year. (One seat-of-Kuno's-pants exception, it seems, but aside from that ...) The promise was custom user titles. Which you've already got, it would seem. (Unless you asked someone to change that for you manually? )

It isn't just the bonus though, otherwise I wouldn't care - I did want to participate in UPN Day but it always seems to come at the worst time, when I'm busy and/or asleep. I mean holy fudge, on 18 June of this year I attended class for 4 hours and slept basically for the remaining 20. I did watch NGNL but I fasted on that day and so slept through most of it.

I also made sure in May I wouldn't miss it my jotting it on my calendar. Hey, I didn't turn the calendar to June. That's how busted up I've been.

Hana, if you could make a skin that makes the eye burning red that some people insist on using more legible that would be grand! Also a skin that cancels out font sizes :p
