Any way to get rid of that annoying dark red of the background? :P

And it's not that annoying as a frame, but more when going from one page to another, and the color takes over the whole screen.

None of the new skins will have a red background (see above :up: )

What's wrong with the red background? It's not that red...

Anyhow, is there a possibility of showing which was the last page from a thread that the user viewed? So for example if I viewed page 80 on the Praise Thread yesterday, and until today 2 more pages were filled with spa-- ahem, comments, the "80" beneath the thread title in the Active Threads page would have a different color.

Actually I find the white pretty friendly. It's the dark red that's burning my eyes. :p

But I guess it just depends on everybody's personality...

it's not the personality that matters ;)

after spending 8-12 hours each day in front of a monitor for the last 10+ years, my eyes preffer black/darker colour as the main colour instead of white or anyother bright colour

The various "function"-buttons related to posts and users (quote, pm, edit, profile, etc) in the necro theme is a bit to red for my taste. But otherwsie it's a nice change, less brightness :D

Well, I've tried them. First I jumped for the Haven one, being sure I'll like it. But I ran into an overly catholic one, full of spiked crosses, which more gave me the feeling I'm in cemetery or a modern (artificial) catholic church (sorry, no offence I hope, just personal beliefs/tastes). Then I went for the Necro one. It was strangely better, but maybe a bit too dark and too full of skulls. So I ended up back here, with this read annoying background.

I guess all that's left, is waiting for sb to come up with a Sylvan theme, maybe that will finally not annoy me anymore. :p

Love the skins! I've taken the liberty to ask AngelSpit to do the Dungeon theme if nobody minds.

Well, it would be unfair to the other alignments to have only some of them there. :D

Well, the background we have now on 2 of the 4 is already a first step. :D

How much room do links to pictures take up?

If I post artifacts in my Auction (Post #1) would that be okay?

Example...

Or will the post eventually be too long?

Also, what is the maximum post length? Will I hit it before the end of my auction?

As for the red buttons in the necropolis layout, I also think they're too red, so they'll probably been changed at some point. When scrolling down a page, the red ones stick out too much.

The various crosses and spikes are all taken from H5 beta material. They've been used to keep the style in thread with the faction.

Actually, the dungeon skin is nearly finished.

I don't think you'll be in trouble if you use those small images.
Maximum post lenght? Good question, I don't think there's an actual limit, but time will tell.

Pity ;|

Since you didn't reply to my mail fast enough I decided to get on to work immediatly and made the header (that is the most time consuming, in my opinion):

Feel free to use it if you want. I had plans for the rest of it but, it's not of utmost importance I guess.

I have to say, I really really like both skins. For now I'm going with Necropolis. The colour scheme in particular appeals to me.
