I have added a new Yesfans skin. Called Yesfans World. At the moment it is the site default.

Wow! What prompted the change? This is really kind of weird yet cool at the same time, albeit kinda confusing when you're used to the last one.

The freaky thing is, I was replying to a message just as you must have changed it. I hit "submit reply" and suddenly entered a metallic world where nothing was quite the same. As long as you don't change this into a spaceship like they did to Soldier Field in Chicago! LOL But give us a couple days and I'm sure it will be as familiar as the last format.

BTW, I did notice that you earlier added some great new emoticons. My favorites are this series of crazy little guys:

:dgdbll: :jammin: and the rest

The new default is not set in stone. I will leave it for a day or so or not if folks complain a lot.

Ha ha ha, you cant right now. have to switch to another. I have yet to get some other functions in this one. 3 days posts, log off, and so forth!

Hey Tim,

Play as much as you want, but please don't ever eliminate #7

I do like it a lot. After you tweak it I just might change over.

Oh! You can change the skin? I'm not used to this kind of stuff so please inform me how. I'm dangerous when it comes to experimenting with computer settings...

Go to Options in your control panel and scroll clear to the bottom where it says forum skins. Choose one and click save changes. It's also on the bottom left of this page in the little drop down menu.

Yes. Click "User CP" (near the top of every page) click "Edit options" (on the left of that page) and near the bottom of the next page, you can select the skin number. Until a few moments ago, skin "7" was being used. Then click "Save".

This will use the skin you chose, once you're logged in.

Update: oops. Cinders already posted the answer. :D

Or scroll to bottom of any site page, bottom left, there is a drop down to change them on the fly also!

I'd love that one but it's too green.

No offense Dominick. You're a very nice shade of green. :winknudge

With this skin every time I click on 'new posts' or 'three day posts' it opens up a new window which is rather annoying.

yeah...I agree. The green is to light....If it was emerald green or deepforest green it would be perfect.

Remember folks you can go into your PROFILE and change the skin to what ever you want.

OMG I love the purple one!!!! I am keeping that one on today. I almost went for "blue fusion" since I like royal blue, I'm a Colts fan and it's football season, but darn it, purple is my true favorite color. Must follow my heart!

Hey Tim...on the purple skin the banner up top says "Your Forum Name" instead of Yesfans. No biggie but can you fix that? Thanks!

I just spent about 20 minutes cruising around in here as a guest, reading posts, seeing how I liked the new World skin. Then I logged in and it converted back to good old #7.

I have to say that when #7 came up it was like a huge breath of fresh air, like the clouds cleared away, like the lights came on.

After only 20 minutes with the World skin, #7 by comparision is much easier on my eyes. But then you knew I'd be the one that disagrees!!

I'm curious to see if my response changes over the next couple of days with increased familiarity....

Hmmm.... I have mixed feelings about the new layout. I much prefer the color scheme of number 7 but Yesfans World has a much nicer layout of all the main page elements. I particularly like haveing the PM info on the left. Could perhaps the color scheme of number seven be combined with the lay out of World? That would be ideal IMHO..

I've always used 7. It's been the best of all for me, but I really like this new one! I'm using it and so far I love it. I feel so -- 21st Century! http://img.photobucket.com/albums/1003/Cinderella528/N99%20Smileys/pinkiesmiles.gif

The only problem I've noticed with this new skin, is that I can't change the color of the text in the quick reply box. I have to click the 'Go Advanced' button, which really isn't that much of a problem.

I like it--way better than that weird metallic 'welcome-to-the-machine' Yesfans world. Too robotic.

Wish we could have the option to customize the site layout (membership plus?).. like you can at myspace with a layout generator/editor html? Or would that be too much of a resource hog or too complicated?.. just a thought.

You mean we're supposed to log off?

Let me sound in with my continued vote for #7. It is the best, and the easiest to work with for me.
