    Thank God for that. It took me ages to find the little box, on that horrible color combination. Men shouldn't be allowed to pick these things; they can't really detect color very well. As my husband says, "Men only have a few more rods and cones in their eyes than dogs do."

    SR has been up until midnight for the past week making this place nice for us and then there is the expenditure.
    It doesn't all happen at once, there is tweaking to be done.
    How is obama working out for you?

    What is with the "cut-out" appearance on some of the smilies?

    I'm going to change the editor colors next, I had to take SLW to the docs for an appt.

    Also, although I like this skin alot the instructions assume you know vBulletin like the back of your hand and that's not good. The designer needs to come up with a better set of install docs.
    May the FORCE be with you!

    The quality of the smilie. The difference is the cut to transparency and I am just guessing, but the clean one is probably a PNG and the rougher one is probably a GIF.




    EDIT: Ayup I checked and, as usual, I'm right.

    I was sort of digging the brighter light. Black is usually CU's color though. Sort of makes it exciting. lol.

    Have you considered the possiblity of having a format which allows multiple skins to choose from?

    Um...at the bottom lefthand corner of this page is a drop-down menu with the option of this skin or the light one. :wink:

    Yes, you have the old tech smilie vs the newer stuff. We'll work it all out but THAT ain't high on the list. :biggrin:

    Sorry, can't blame SR for this one. He asked me to pick out the colors. We reviewed what's available for purchase. Everyone was complaianing about the bright, blind your eyes color that came with the upgrade.

    SR posted the sample before he purchased it. The problem is you get only a sample, don't know the glitches til after it's purchased.

    Funny thing, people gripe if it's too bright or if it's too dark. We're trying to do the best that we can with our resources.

    The color choices done by techies aren't that great. Believe me, this was one of the best that we could find that combined the new features that SR wanted with a color that wouldn't blind people. SR has put in a lot of time on this. I guess "volunteers" get no respect.
