Can We Use Something Other Than SubSilver?

It hurts my eyes.
Baeleck

I'm not to fond of SubSilver either. It's too similar to loads of other forums I've used, makes it look too normal. This RP nirvana is far from normal, I think you'll agree...
Exachix

The Problem is then Avatars,
They are Anti-Aliased to White..
Vael

I'm checking through them. I've found one I somewhat like, but I'm not sure how well others would like it.
Jenova, in case you know of it.
It also seems to work for avis.
It looks perhaps a bit too sci-fi for us though.
Fax Celestis

I saw that installed, but it didn't do anything when I switched to it.
Vael

That's because my style overrides yours.
Exachix

Because it's set up so we all have to use this... there's a setting in the Admin Control Panel that does that.

We can't change ours... but the Admin's can change theirs.
Fax Celestis

...why?
Vael

Should I change it so people can each use their own styles?
I don't think it'll be that much different.
Exachix

Because there's an option for it... I guess phpbb's creator's thought It'd be a good idea to do that.

If you do that.. people have for freedom... but there must be a disadvantage or it'd not be an option...
Geomancer

Yeah let us use our own styles... that sounds like fun.
Vael

Might take up more space?
Wukei

Wow...the current alternative choices suck...
Vael

You should see all the others.
Fax Celestis

The Chrome EX is nice.
Vael

Ah... and I encounter a problem.
Okay, if we're going to let people choose their own styles, then there will be major problems getting ourselves a custom logo.
Fax Celestis

Why's that?
Geomancer

God... subSilver is the best of all of those... and subSilver is terrible.
Deadly

If not for the icons, and the fact that I can't see if I have new messages, Exposion would be ok with me. It's nice and compact, just like I want it.

I like smartDark, nice and...dark, even though it shows the rough edges of people's avatars.
SweetRein

I recommend Artemis Lite. It's very pretty.

Because the way you add in the logo is by editing a template...

Not necessarily. Find a common image (for instance, the PHPBB one above), and replace the source image.
Vael

The way they show you how to do it, and the easiest, simple way that I am capable of doing requires you to replace the template's logo.
If you'd like to give a tutorial on how to do another way, be my guest and write it up.
SweetRein

Open the template folder, then the desired template.
Open 'overall_header.tpl' in wordpad or other equivalent editor for your system.
Find the line name of the logo, for example 'logo_phpBB.gif'
Change this line.
Damon

I'm using Artemis Blue, but I'm not a huge fan of any. Marble just hurts my face.
Lykan

I like the smartblack one, or whatever it's called... 'cept for the stupid "no new posts," "new posts," and "announcement" symbols... But the ones on Softmetal look cool.
Shadow of the Sun

I use smartDark...it works well, and most colours show up well.
