I'd like to bring up this topic again. Since there was a lot of discussion of blues, I've installed two blue styles so you can test them out and give your thoughts. Depending on the general consensus for them, we may try other styles or experiment in whatever direction you all wish.

Just keep in mind that these styles have not been fully incorporated with the site, because that could take hours. You can visit any link you see, but certain things like the store, rules, and site information are not accessible. The logos are default, as well.

Just ask yourself: Would I rather view the site with one of these, or the current one, and why not? Constructive criticism.

Visions Blue

Classic Blue

EDIT: Click here to return to the default style. You can do this at the bottom-left of any page, too.

hmm... I like the original better... well the reason I say that is that I can't get back to the original layout, and I can't get to literature or anything. How come it won't change back for me. I'm stuck on either Classic or Vision Blue now...


EDIT: Oops... nevermind

If anyone is wondering, my boyfriend's internet is the absolute worst piece of shit in existence, and it causes my computer to slow down significantly anytime I enter the Chatroom. It also causes the chatroom to freeze anyway, so it's a bit futile to attempt to log in while I'm at his place.

Oh crap..I'm stuck on classic now...how do I get back to orginal?!

As for constructive crit...I like the one we have now better than both since they just look to cliche and the one YWO has right now is way more unique.

Nyx, just go to the bottom of the home page and click default style on the little tag window. (Bottom left corner)

For me those two are too hard on the eyes. I like the original it's like a serene winter theme.

Sorry if I don't get on for a while. My computer has a virus, and I can't get on it.

*Note* It still has a virus, but I can get on a bit more then before on my mom's computer. But if I don't get on for a day or two I am really sorry.

Maybe it's because I'm used to it, but I really prefer the silver theme.

Who was talking about blue anyway? -glares-
