    Default New layout! Woooooo

    Hiii everyone!

    Okay, well, about a week or so ago I put forward an idea to pretty-fy the front site and make it more visually appealing. Now, thanks to Rantz and his totally awesome coding skills, my vision came true!

    We're hoping this will be the new default, so change your themes to Sasquatch and take a peek! If any of you have some suggestions on how the layout can be improved or it's name, leave your comments here! :3

    I like it A couple issues I've noticed right off the bat, though:

    *The left side of the theme runs off my monitor and cuts the beginning of things off. So "New posts" says "w posts", for example.

    *It's difficult to see the Quick Reply box because it appears to be the same exact color as the surrounding area.

    This is using the latest version of Firefox on my laptop; the operating system is Lubuntu Linux 12.04.

    Hate it. Don't like lightning. How come when you put forward an idea, it gets done within a month, I put forward an idea and get beat up by psycho midgets?


    Make it zack and it'll be awesome. Even better, add an option in settings to choose a background color and character.

    kNock that white back, it's too bright and makes it difficult to distinguish certain areas. Other than that its an nice clean layout.
    You hold my heart in your manly hands I wanna feel the throb of your handsome gland. I wanna hold you tight like a newborn kitten, against my flesh like a cashmere mitten. Tickly tick, I'm makin' skin bump heaven and all the way down it's lookin' cleanly shaven. Prickety pricks, it's stubble on stubble I better slow down or I'm in real trouble. Want you, touch you, feel you, taste you! Knick knack whacky whack 'till I see the man stew. spin you around let me see that hole! I'm a tunnelin' in a like a short hair mole. Once I'm inside I'm gonna leave a trace, half in there and half on that face! One finger, two finger, there fingers gone! Mano a mano I love you John!

    It's awesome. Though, make a few changes, like darken the color on the left of the posts since some of the titles really clash with the current color.

    I am just... that ace!

    Please keep in mind that people have volunteered time out of their lives to try and make a nice shiny skin for our forum in honor of the new game so everyone here will TAKE WHAT THEY ARE GIVEN AND LIKE IT.

    Well considering she's been a star of two, now going on three of the latest final fantasies, you're going to have to deal with that because it's a no brainer for us to have a skin based around her.

    Perhaps because she spent a lot of time doing graphics work herself working constantly and closely to see this come to fruition? If you have an idea you'd like to propose to the staff, please do so in the feedback forum. As for the Psycho-Midgets, sounds like you just need to play less Borderlands.

    You pretty much described the skin system already in place

    This is a very good point and should be taken into consideration and fixed.

    This is pretty great tbh

    And there are like a million dark themes already, so just use one of those if you're a weirdo who doesn't like nice clean bright ones like this.

    Disregard my notes from earlier in this thread; both of my concerns have been addressed! I love this theme! Possibly my current favorite

    It's so pretty and girly!

    I most know: can you see rep in this skin? For example, Fluffy Puff you cannot, which is the reason I'm not using that skin. If you can't in this skin, I won't use it either.
