I miss the old RogueTemple theme
« on: October 02, 2013, 01:13:46 PM »
I don't know.. this new blue and white theme doesn't feel "roguelike".. I loved the white on black theme with the logo on top we had before.
And there's no avatars.. why this?
Slash, will the old graphics be restored?

Hm, even though I don't feel like it's a big issue – and the new theme is comfortable enough – I actually did enjoy the slightly idiosyncratic feel of ye olde white-on-black theme, so I'll throw in a +1. Same goes for the avatars, actually. "Ein bisschen Spass muss sein", after all. By the way, I don't know why, but a select few seem to have kept their avatars, such as Anvilfolk. (Which reminds me: Anvilfolk, where did you go with NausicäaRL? Come back, we still loves you!)

As always,

I preferred the old theme as well, though the added functionality of the current forum version is much better. It'd be nice to get a re-skin. As I recall, though, avatars were intentionally removed because they are a common security risk.

My thoughts exactly. The current theme... well it works, but it's so... common :(

The old theme really felt "Roguelike".

One of the reasons I like this forum is the clean, sparse design. A rarity these days. If the old one was even better, bring it on!

But avatars = tiles, surely?

Hello all.

I'm running through pretty hard times with work and stuff, if anybody could work a SMF2 theme based on the old one that would be great... I can send the template.

IIRC I removed it fearing that it had been hacked and had evil code injected... seriously after the past 2 hack attacks I was pretty depressed about that and just decided to throw this "default" one, to conserve it functional.

It's not that important. This theme is fine too.

Yeah. Black themes are childish and I really hated that huge logo. I have installed a browser plugin just to get rid of the logo, seriously :).

I still really miss the old theme.. I don't know, it feels quite cold and aseptic now, light blue with that SimpleMachinesForum logo, and no avatars..
Could we go back to the old skin Slash (maybe after starting a poll)?

I vote against avatars and tons of "flare". I want content and something that doesn't look too suspicious if I happen to browse a bit while at work.

Configuration, then. Current colors or white-on-black, truetype or fixed font, avatars or not.

I think everything should stay exactly the way it is, including the fact that only super awesome cool people can have avatars.
