I'm still missing "new post" icons (the small ones that looks like a sheet of paper) that are distinguishable from the ones used for old posts for the Sylvan skin as well...

I really loved all themes. Most of them are perfectly done. "Most" since IMHO Dungeon banner does not fit, or lets say it's somewhat boring. Also, I think the Dungeon icons are less detailed, compared to others. Color are awesome though...

The two final faction themes are ready.

As you may already have guessed, it's: Academy and Inferno.

I think that in the Sylvan layout the color of the fonts is too close to the one of the background, especially in the Topic column in the Posts-since-last-visit page. And in the Academy layout, the highlight color or whatever it's called is too yellow and with the bright background, it makes the text hard to read. Of course, one could just not highlight the text when reading it, but I just thought I'd mention it, because its improvable.

How about you lighten up the darker blue in the Academy theme. It contrasts to much with the other one, and is to close to the color of the letters.

Nice, now we have themes from all 6 factions. I checked them all, and my favourites are Sylvan and Necropolis, although all are nice looking. I'm currently using Necropolis theme because it is most relaxing among all themes (from too much white color my head hurts :ill: )
Keep up the good work ;)

He's right, there is a bit too much white it other themes.

If I can make another suggestion: in the Inferno theme, the poll "bars" have too little contrast with the red background. I would suggest making the bars some other color, like yellow. Or perhaps like the multicolored (yellow-orange-red-black-red-orange-yellow) bar right here that I am looking at now on top of the window when you are posting a reply.

It's not that I haven't paid any attention to all of your suggestions, but I'm a bit hung up at the moment. I hope to get some time to fix some of the small annoying things at the end of the weekend.

Any idea what the next board project will be? What about making a skin of each magic school? :) Or of the different 7 lvl creatures or.... ;|

Wow, I just noticed the change in Academy. Only took me 3 days... ;|

Thanks, it's way better now.

BTW why this colours for Academy, the oficial colours are orange (saffron) and gold...

Yeah those colors would be more fitting than pink/crimson.

Some gold-orange would do great. Also the current color is more of a light Mauve!

I'll try and puzzle an orange/golden theme together, it might take a little while. The color gold is hard to reproduce, though I'm quite happy with the Haven header it's much harder to apply as a single color.
