Nope, I sure didn't change anything. Weird. :teehee:

I've had a look at the skin on different monitors and it totally depends on what kind of monitor you're using. Different settings and different kinds of monitors give off a different shade of green.

Well whoever it was, you have made this girl who uses the internet server of satan (apparently :P) very happy.

Okay, I've decided. I definitely don't like the underlining. It works with short usernames, like Haldir's, but it really doesn't look good with a long one like Arwen's. No offense to anyone's usernames :P

Clearly this just means I should change my username! To something short...like Bob.

IE is satan, JF... :-P

BOB!!

That is the name that actually crops up to much in our house, which is odd as we have no Bob's. Me and my brother just think it's a great name. Bob. :P

Zounds. I am cavorting with the devil. Get thee to a bottle of holy water.

I might cry just a little bit (and also feel guilty) if you change your username to Bob.

How about Bob the webmaster? Is that any better? :bounce:

The underline's gone anyway, so we'll have to be Bob-less. Sad.

(Well, if you toss a bottle of water at your computer, holy or not, it will probably kill IE...and everything else on your computer... :-P)

I never go off-topic, never ever...

The underlining is gone. I didn't like it either.

But seeing as only a few of us have voiced our opinions on it, we could still bring it back if the majority of all forum members want it.

Hm, well I liked it because it made the usernames stand out, but I honestly don't care either way. -shrug-

Love the new layout. :yes:

I think the green is the perfect shade. Lovely, warm, dark. :happy: And the new "New Topic" and "Post Reply" buttons are gorgeous!

I guess to nit-pick over things, I'm not crazy about how the post background colors alternate. It's a little bit distracting, and it also makes me want to time my posts so that I only appear in the dark green 'cause I like that color better. :P (I'm on the light green now, darn it! :teehee:)

Also, the header font looks a little messy to me. I've seen it on the site header, and I think it looks alright there because it's bigger, but when it's crammed onto the forum header it just looks messy to me. But again, that's just my opinion and I also get the need for it to be continuous with the header of the site. :)

But those are just little things, and definitely nothing I can't live with. Mostly I think it's really, really, great. :D

Haha I see your point, but to be fair - they alternate on the blue skin as well though maybe not as noticeable.

Sometimes the difference is big, sometimes I barely see it. I like the darker one best though :P

And can I say, the new colors are making me happy. Bright and shiny (well, not really) and green and spring-y and DIFFERENT! I love it :happy:

Well I just changed them a wee bit, so that they're closer in shade.

Same here. :happy: I did like the blue a lot, but I really like the change. It feels so warm and full of life here now!

Ah, I went back and saw that it did indeed. :yes: (It's funny how I've been staring at that skin for 5 years and never noticed. :P)

Thanks for changing it, Eru! I like it much better now. :) It looks wonderfully dark and foresty!

It's strange how some thing you never notice at all. I didn't realize they alternated on the blue skin until I saw the CSS code, haha.

You're welcome, it looks better now to me as well. :)

Bring the line back!!

Joking.

That is true. As it's a new computer, I'll just live with satan. We've been in a relationship for years anyhow. :P

The colours look fine to me. I didn't notice they changed from page to page. I'm just happy we have a new skin. :D

And I can see what you're saying about the header Taur, but I am really in love with what Eru has done with the text, and actually if you swap back to the blue skin, you'll see the Arwen-Undomiel.com is far more crammed I think, to the point it's not really easy to read. The font on this header is bright and vibrant and I think really stands out as well. The only thing I would maybe suggest (in case more people feel like yourself) is that Eru could have Arwen-Udomiel.com on one line. I know the main site header won't be on one line, but a slight deviation won't hurt I don't think and it might seem to be less crammed.

But as I said, I love it the way it is. :-)
