On page 14... it's called "Newspaper on the Deck" kind of an old school look like back in the day.

or maybe one like it with some colour... ehh?

Hmmm... I didn't like it much Rooster. Buuuut, I do like where you where going with that idea. I could see Newspaper On the Deck on pg.14 as he said.

Is there a forum skin that looks WW1 era-ish? Anything to give the feel of the early 1900's I think would add some atmosphere to the forum.

I'm looking through the search results now as my work allows (I'm sitting at work I mean lol)

I would like to see somthing from the period but it may be tough to find... can it be created or do you have to use what they have available?

Something more period-like would be preferable. Until then, the tan with green accent is very WWI-ish. Think Sopwith and Spad.

FYI,

Gents, we are never 'stuck' with anything.

Yes we can create a custom skin, but....It is currently beyond my abilities. The Skin is based on a thing call CSS Style Sheets and requires a solid ability in writing in HTML. At best I know enough to edit but not create! Anyone up for that task?

Of the many many skins available from HitSkin quite a few of them won't work. In some the Private messages notification is lame. In others the Porta doesn't work.

I have been through all 60 pages, yes pages of possibilities and our current scheme is the best so far. I have quite a few other tasks like the calendar to work on but our 'look' is a priority.

My best,

S!
Duff
