A new theme?

Post by Nico0020 » Tue May 27, 2008 8:54 pm

I've always wanted to see a more Dreamcast related board theme here. Nothing too fancy, but I never did care too much for the way the board looks. I love our logo on subsilver/prosilver, but the rest of the board is bleh. As my art skills are limited as far as creating such a thing, I'm curious; With all the talented people here is anyone else out there would be willing to try and create something? (Yea i realize this should probably go in Art, but traffic there is wayy slow.)

The funny thing is that the original reason why I became admin here was to make a Dreamcast custom theme for this board.
But we were on phpBB2 then, and right after I became admin they announced phpBB3, so I thought "well, I'll wait until phpBB3 to make a theme." After years of delay, it never came out until last year, and even then it was in RC so I couldn't make one because of potential incompatibilities. The upgrade earlier today finally enables me to do that, but I don't know if I will bother. I've got so much more on my hands now. I probably will, but it will most likely be a color scheme change to subsilver2 and some changes at the header of the theme to look more like the site design we're trying to target. fackue's doing a good job working on getting that theme working with the wiki.
It's thinking...

Ugghh, good luck man. It can be a real bitch at times (not as easy as when I was making themes in phpBB2 before I upgraded my forums). Lemme know if you need any help on it though.
