As you may have noticed, things are looking a little bit different around here, depending on what board styles you use. We've had to toss a substantial number of the old display styles, because they are no longer supported/compatible with the current software. This has left us with a total of two usable styles right now, and they are ugly. Zombie Squad is all about form and fashion, so that means it's time to find more options for our aesthetically-conscious user base.
"But wait, Shrapnel," I can hear you asking, "what if you pick styles that are ugly and make my eyes hurt? You have the design sensibilities of a colorblind whelk! Who put you in charge of this?" The answer to the second question is, Crypto, and I'll add that KJ4VOV is also at fault for any displeasing choices co-heading up this deal with me, so don't blame me for anything. The more salient point is that assigning blame doesn't matter, because you, yes, YOU, will be voting to determine the ten styles that we eventually go with!
Here is your mission. Visit this site (https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/styl ... styles-12/) and look through the various themes and styles that are there. Click on a theme, read the description, and click on the 'Demo' tab on the right side of the screen to look through a sample forum in that style. Don't just look at the pretty colors- pay attention to where user interface buttons and links are. Do you always look to the bottom right side of a post to find the quote button? Perhaps you should look for themes that contain that functionality. That kind of thing.
Having found one or two themes you want submitted for voting, post your request in this thread, with a link to the theme, like so:
You have until Saturday, October 26th, at whenever-I-wake-up am, to submit a theme request. We have a maximum of 40 poll options, so submit your preference early. Any submissions that are not formatted like the example up there, are going to be ignored, because it makes my life easier. I will keep an updated-daily tally of the submissions in the first reply to this thread, for ease of checking.example wrote:Bl@ck https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/style/bl%40ck/demo/
Once the first part is done, I will make a poll in this thread. Each person will get up to ten votes. The top ten options, will become board styles.
tl;dr- we need new looks for the board. Click on the first link, find one or two styles you want, post names and links to the style in this thread. You have until 10/26/13 to submit options. We will then vote on the top ten.
