***(Cancelled) Forum downtime***

Post by Sparked on Wed Aug 04, 2010 7:19 am

We unfortunately need to change the skin due to the discontinued service of our images being hosted for this skin hence the photobucket images around the skin. Its beyond our control but we need to make changes.

***The Forum will be CLOSED for approximately 1 hour on Wednesday 4th August 2010 beween 11am-12pm UK Time (BST).*** THIS HAS NOW BEEN CANCELLED.

We apologise for the inconvenience caused but thank you for your patience. Smile

That's to bad. Also, we could also choose a new theme since the images got deleted, but that would require to change the logo since it looks good with this theme.

Indeed, i dont really want to change the theme if possible because as you say the log etc looks good plus the Website http://clanserv.moonfruit.com has been built with similar colours.

I will go ahead with the changes if it works out and see how it goes. If the image hosting becomes a problem, then we may have to change skin.

I have actually found a skin thats exactly the same as this one except its Nav bar is a bit different but i could change that. I wonder if it was done in preperation for this.

If i can sort this out, it may mean i dont need to mess about with photobucket or CSS now. Smile The downtime will go ahead but it may only be brief now. Smile

Sure thing: http://en.hitskin.com/search-a-skin/gaming-forum-158384.htm

New posts are more clear too. The Navbar is rather ugly but if i can take the links from the Navbar on this skin and put them on that, all may be solved.

The person who made the skin is different to the one who made this one so we wouldnt need to worry about photobucket. Smile

However, what do you think of this one?

Not quite with the added orange however it looks very very modern. Infact this skin is very new to Forumotion too. Very Happy

I don't think that one looks good.

1. It doesn't have a black background.

2. It doesn't have orange text on index.

We are actually going to have to change skin i think because this skin doesnt have a CSS i can modify.

There isnt any other decent black and orange skins around.

Looks like your going to have to change the skin its the easiest way to sort the problem not something we all want but it doesn't look good when you have photobucket images all over the forum.

Sorry it seems we are going to have to lose the black and orange on here Marine but a dark grey/black one will do just as well on here. Smile

Hopefully we will accustom to the new skin. Smile

I have actually found the CSS stylesheet to this skin. Have never seen it before.

Now we can actually keep this skin if i apply the changes. How does that sound or would you rather have a new skin to keep here "fresh" ???

I would want to keep this skin, but it's your choice.
