    any chance we could get a new forum skin?
    the banner up top is looking incredibly dated with each passing day [​IMG]

    Yes that contest didn't yield anything we were willing to swap with the current skin.

    But of course there are constantly changes to the board being cooked up backstage. You'll have to wait.

    I thought it was going to be added as an alternative skin, so the current one will still be the default skin. TBH I don't really see anything that special about the skin, even though it's still nice.

    Meh. I still tink we need a new skin. You can find websites and skin databases all over the net.

    But that's the point, I'm pretty sure that no said that the current skin should be removed, only thatalternative skins should be made available for those who wish to use it.

    I think it should be on the skin menu at the bottom.

    No offense, but it's a tad generic (not to say that the current skin isn't) and the blue text is a bitch to read - don't worry, just reread Opium's post [​IMG]

    Dark blue text on light blue background.... I can safely say I do like that.

    Would a whole bunch of new skins a) potentially not go to use and b)create a few more bandwidth issues.

    I have noticed a few bugs and glitches here and there in GBATemp but on the whole I think the current skin suits it if anything a slight layout change or a few buttons added and there would be all it needs really.
