View Full Version : The LPA Goes 8-Bit!

In honor of Linkin Park's brand new iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch video game "8-Bit Rebellion!", the LPA Forums have installed a brand new skin titled "LPA 8-Bit". Themed after the graphic style of 8-Bit Rebellion (while featuring sprites from some old NES classics), this new design is not only a nice new look for the LPA Forums, but also a tribute to the video games that we grew up with, and also of which got us into gaming in the first place.

Since we do realize that many of you may be partial to our original light colored LPA4 design, we are keeping that available as a choice at the bottom of our forums that you can revert to through the use of the simple drop down menu (select "LPAFourskin"). Since this design is intended to promote the video game, it will only be the default skin temporarily, and after a month or two we will officially be reverting back to the original design. However, much like with the original LPA4 skin, it'll forever be selectable as a skin after the promotional period is over.

So while you are posting on these boards enjoying the new skin, why not buy Linkin Park's new video game "8-Bit Rebellion" through the iTunes store, or listen to "8-Bit Theory" made by our very own Keaton Hashimoto here (http://www.lpassociation.com/forums/showthread.php?t=30666)? :)

Enjoy!

Notes:


Some smilies may appear with white halos around them. This is due to those smilies being made for white backgrounds. There is unfortunately nothing we can do about this.
If you encounter any bugs (i.e. parts of the forums that have not been recolored) please let us know so we can fix the problem.
In addition to re-designing our boards, we have also re-written the band bios to keep them up to date for 2010.
This is only the beginning...more cool updates are planned for the next few months...

A lot of people wanted a darker skin, so this was our way of achieving that.

It's a lot softer on the eyes to be honest, and way to get in the spirit of the new Linkin Park!
