    I reaaaally like the new look of the site, huge fan of vectors and flat UIs, but it's too bright for me. I've been wanting to do my own take on TempStyle Dark for a long time cause I never liked the default TempStyle Dark that mixed gray and blue.

    Introducing TempStyle Shadow!
    An actual dark and clean take on the V6 skin!

    More screenshots: Profile, Main forum view, In-topic view.

    This skin mainly uses 3 shades of gray and white for most UI elements and links. The original orange color appears occasionally as hover color and poll stats, which works really well for my eyes.
    This skin also brings back full signatures.

    I spent last night and today skinning just about everything I could find ( huge thanks @TheKawaiiDesu for helping me search the site <3 ) and made it dark and nice.

    Obviously like with every and anything there will be bugs and quirks, feel free to report those, should you find them.

    The theme can be found on Userstyles HERE. To install it from here you need Stylish, but for your own sake, install Stylus (Chrome link - Firefox link) instead.
    Note: MAKE SURE YOU HAVE YOUR GBATEMP STYLE SET TO THE NEW SKIN!

    Best one yet, even the shoutbox is skinned, great job! The only things that aren't dark are the text formatting buttons in when replying and that divider line below posts in threads. And I would love if you made the text in threads and status updates just a tiny bit brighter. But these are just my personal opinions, thanks a lot for this skin!

    Thanks for the feedback! Glad you like it!

    I would skin the formatting buttons if they weren't fucking jpeg *sigh* - they're from a spritesheet, so I'd either have to make my own spritesheet or get new icons for them, since I obviously can't do black on black. In any case, they'd also have to be externally hosted.

    I'll bump the non-link colors up a bit for next update.

    That's because this is just a skin, the entire site is being revamped.

    Uh..this project skins V6, even official would just be another skin for it, granted it'd (most likely) be written a bit cleaner.

    This is great, but I'm going to stick with the old dark theme (because you can see full signatures). But amazing work!

    I'm pretty sure he was talking about V6 taking 6 months and your skin taking 24 hours.

    Just started trying it right now, I love it. Although maybe it's a bit too dark. Any plans on making a bit of a lighter one? (Nice orange on the text boxes!)

    my lewd corner
    Thanks, my eyes will no longer have to suffer. I do like the new Temp Style, but I hate white themes.

    EDIT:

    Also, a AMOLED version (Pure Black) would be nice. It would work great on Firefox Mobile.
