    As you probably already know, BF has adopted a new original default skin. It's been tested in both Firefox and Internet Explorer browsers, and seems to work great with both. If any problems come along, please do report them to me, and I'll try to get them worked out ASAP. Aside from that, I hope you all enjoy the new skin.

    Other skins will be added in the very near future, including fixed versions of SCGhost and our Dark Diablo skin. I will also be creating a few others, just for fun (and added as selections).

    That is all.

    Yes the new default skin is nice, also the banner in the upper part of the window.

    As a problem or something that is not right, I think that when one posts and needs to copy and back (in order to avoid double posting), in the selected text area, the text is not visible anymore.

    Can't you change the read threads symbols and already posted symbols ([​IMG]) to that of SC Ghost or usual Vbulletin? I can never notice the bloody arrow except by looking well...

    Other than that, nice skin. Reminds me of the first time I came, with the StarCraft Forums blue skin :D

    Eh... the Message Box at the bottom... that will take me a day or so to get used to.

    Nice colors and all, but i'm still waiting for the VB3 White skin.

    I made it. Thank you.

    I'll start making those changes soon @ x42 and tronga.

    As for the message box, I can try to make it 'prettier'. Problem is, I can't seem to find where to change that damn white border :mad:. If anyone knows, do tell me ;).

    Well, I know what white is, but the border doesn't seem to be in the CSS stuff (in the ACP), but somewhere in one of the template files. I'll probably find it...and yes, maybe you know, sicloan?

    I also just fixed an issue, where some versions of IE seemed to not like the image map (navigation links under the logo). I tested, and it seems to be fixed...so if you use IE and had a problem before, it should be elimated. Although, we all know firefox is better ;).

    -edit

    x42, I implemented your suggestion =o

    -edit edit

    New images for tronga.
