Rather then picking one skin what do you think of uploading all suggestions and let atomicans choose what they want.

We should at least narrow it to a short list first so we dont end up writing more skins than we need to... i think they're all concepts atm

Looking at some of those ones that basically clone the old look, I can't help feeling like something a bit different... given the choice, I'd go for something similar to that quick mock-up I posted.

 

I'm sure there are heaps of folks who want it to look like 2.5, and so there'll certainly be a skin for that, but I'm digging the new yellower green the links at the top of the page are in; I hope just as much effort is put into a slick evolution based on the new green...

I've been playing around with making a 2.6esque skin...

Incomplete, and a work in progress... but yeah..

Looks great!

 

(but then again to me anything that is dark would look good :P )

 

My only suggestion would be to tie the "greens" you're using in with those in the graphic...

you make a good point there Kimmo. much like how Australia should become a republic AND get a new flag, amirite? ;)

 

it IS a bit naff to only look to the past. we must move on. but atm i would much rather be contemplating Atomic's edgy new look from the relaxing surrounds of classic V2.6 comfort...

 

so, do you feel we should go 'military'?

 

i mean, your mock-up just needs an ammo belt down the side and a garland of silhouetted razor-wire and it could be the new Soldier Of Fortune forum :P its definitely an improvement over what we have now, and might be more stylish than the old toxic-waste/snot-green, but i cant help associating those shades with looking out for Charlie up in the trees!

Ick, 2.6 does not marry up with 3.0 at all.

looking back now, while v2 and v1 looked great as a whole, it does now look pretty ghetto and worn.

time to move on. but if you want to use old faithful. i believe you should be able to.

 

Mr a bomb's skin or whatever it was he made with the black on white, with greens and Grey's looked great. that was by far my favorite so far. but I'm very much open to see what everyone comes up with also.

Mr a bomb has my vote for the new atomic skin. Don't go back to 2.6. Looks way too dated.

I agree, i just know people have been bitching about not having a 2.6-lookalike skin :)

Nah, I was hoping somebody would take my tweaked screencap and add a bit more colour in the form of different shades of green... I'm sposed to be busy with other stuff.

 

I can see what you're saying about the khaki thing, but I was just proposing it as a start; with a couple of bluer hues of green sprinkled through it, I reckon it'd look awesome.

 

Different coloured Os like I the ones originally proposed for thread icons for 2.6 would set it off nicely, I reckon...

 

If someone wants to see about improving my first stab, here it is again:

My two cents: I don't think the links should be the same colour as any other text

eeek, it's a toss up for me, they both look great.

 

My only suggestion for all is, with such dark backgrounds the text doesn't need to be so bright...

This is more like what I meant: http://i37.tinypic.com/19a59h.png

 

Be nice if the height of the quote header could be halved like that, too.

 

EDIT: fair call, Mac http://i36.tinypic.com/mlqeld.png

The plain text isn't as in your face.

 

Got me thinking if there is much difference between CRT & LCD viewing in terms of brightness...

To be honest, I'm not liking the seriously green themes. I like the darker greys, with green highlights personally :)

Gah, I always forget about that. Its hard to get a colour scheme that works nicely across a wide range of monitors, especially since some LCD monitors like my samsung have a large amount of light bleed >.>
