View Full Version : What forums skin do you primarily use?

I was thinking of making a banner or maybe even a new pair of light/dark skins to commemorate the FF 30th Anniversary. The problem with that is that we have so many skins that I don't really know what people use. So come on, hit me.

This does discount skins for specific purposes like Simplified and Mobile.

Also consider this notice that I have removed a couple of random skins with broken images or just generic vBulletin branding. RIP Kitty Fantasy.

There are several I like, but I've mainly used Aeris Reborn and Faded Fantasy. I like the darker themes, personally. My preference goes to Aeris Reborn (the banner is weird to me, though) because I like the pink and brown combo. But while it's dark, it's not a harsh dark. It's a gentle sepia and warm.

Faded Fantasy is my primary, but Kupo got some serious love from me back in the day as well.

Kupo is my main one, but I also like Aeris Reborn quite a bit. Like Jinx, I prefer light text on dark background. Mostly because it's just easier for me to read with my astigmatism, but overall, it just feels so soothing.

I use Fifteen. It's nice and light and I really like the border.

So I'm the only one who likes to pretend it's still 2004 on occasion, huh?

Not by a long shot, Fresno.

Old Skool. I just got too used to that look over the years. I know there is an option to make it even more old school, but I like the old skool setting better. I like the darker, calmer colors. I think that works better for this type of bulletin system.

Old Skool was primarily the one I used, but I only really use mobile anymore since my laptop pretty much died.

I used to use AeriS Reborn, because I like darker backgrounds, but I use Fifteen now because I got used to it.

Using Faded Fantasy right now and loving it- but I used Fifteen for a LONG time and loved it, so voted for that one. Think used it for about two years straight ??

I completely forgot about the forum skins for years until I seen this thread. I've always ran with Neo/EoFF classic but I'm gonna give Aeris Reborn a run for a while. Wasn't it the default skin for eoff years ago?

Simplified 2.0 is my favorite, but I generally default to NeoClassic. Just checked out Fifteen and it is actually pretty good. I can see why it is the current default. Good job to whoever made that one.

Old Skool. It was the skin I started with (I think?) but I don't know I really like it. I love the dark blue and the retro banner at the top. It has a really soothing colour tone.

That's a question actually: what has been the history of the default skins? I joined in 2007: was that Old Skool? Or the Aeris Reborn skin?

The default skins went Classic -> Aeris Reborn -> Old Skool -> Fifteen. 2007 was still Aeris Reborn.

Good job to whoever made that one.Why thank you. Although it was a joint effort and the super cool stuff about Fifteen like the rounded corners was not me! The colours and banner/background were my doing though.

Old Skool is just so nice on the eyes. And am I remembering correctly in claiming that black orb made the banner image or am I making that up? Either way it's a really pretty piece and it sets a nice mood.

I used Aeris Reborn for a long time, I think it may have been the default when I joined but I can't remember. It's nice too and it's kind of nostalgic to browse with it on.

Ooooh I do remember Aeris Reborn actually when I first joined. I also like the pleasing brown effect, but that banner image on Old Skool. Who made it?

It was indeed black orb.
