Title: Board Theme
Post by: bustin98 on April 19, 2006, 09:29:13 AM
So, the themes are cool. Even cooler is that the themes can be created from scratch. I propose that anyone interested throw out some suggestions for how they would like to see the boards look and we can have our own 'VGMaps' theme.



Any takers?

I was gonna make a VGMaps theme, but i don't think many people will like an all white forum theme. It looks good on the homepage VGMaps..but it'll make the forums look cluttered. But still a good idea.

Through all my concerns that I've been throwing at Inty, I haven't had much time to actually look at the new features, or the different ways that particular features have been implemented.



Posts like this are helping me feel better about what we do have.



Back on topic, no, I haven't really looked at the themes, but I will soon, now that you mentioned it.

I wouldn't suggest an all white board, but the compass logo could be worked in, and some 8 bit images of characters or something.



Or it doesn't need to be based on the site. I just called it a VGMap theme because it was created by us, not some other board host.

Yeah, it's very possible. But you mapmakers are the graphics designers. So put some nice gradients together. And i'll incorperate it into a VGMaps theme wit the logo and everything.

I'm not sure yet how customizable the themes are, but I would very much like the offical VGMaps theme to look like the site as much as possible (yes, lots of white), and that would be the default.  I'm sure we could have other variants based off of that, but I have concerns other than the theme for now.  You guys can certainly start making a VGMaps theme if you want, but don't be surprised if I have "suggestions" for changes if I don't like it.  :P
