With the anticipation building in the wait for Linkin Park's fourth studio album, we felt the need to celebrate the soon to be released "A Thousand Suns" by once again, giving our forums a make-over. Along with our default LPA4 and 8-Bit Rebellion Theme, we have now added the option to select a third skin; A Thousand Suns.

With a fresh new look and creative influence from the current promotional artwork for "A Thousand Suns", we bring to you this uniquely designed interpretation that will give you a little more variety whilst browsing the message boards. We hope you enjoy this additional new look to the LPA and we thank you for your continued support!

To select "A Thousand Suns" simply head down to the lower left corner of the page and select the respective option from the Quick Style Chooser drop-down menu.

Will this theme be altered if it turns out the album art and theme become drastically different from the current LinkinPark.com skin?

Don't know. We wouldn't alter this theme, but keep it as is, and create a new one, if we decided to do anything.

Yeah, we'll create a new one if there is some awesome album artwork to work with. I guess we'll have to wait until September for that one if it does happen, until then, I'll use this one. :lol:

And vB 4's skinning system is complete shit, so I'll need a few months to get my sanity back before we can do a new skin anyways.

Yeah exactly. :lol: We should all thank Todd for working hard on this one, who some say he still hadn't fully recovered from the 8-Bit Theme yet. So yeah, thanks Todd. Doing these skins isn't as straight forward as people may think. :lol:

I didn't know we had the option to choose skins. That's pretty awesome and user-friendly :D I like the ATS one best!

Just thanking you again Joe for all this and now a personal thank you to Todd. This style is my personal favorite and I absolutely love this ATS styler. Though you probably won't, I wish you guys would do this style with ALL your pages. Anyhow, thanks a lot for the new style!

Give Keaton most of the credit, he did the design and the images. I just had to implement it in vB ;)

Thanks a lot for the comments, but you should probably also thank Keaton. He worked the majority of the design and does a lot of the graphics for the site, so without Keaton and Todd, this wouldn't be possible. In fact, don't thank me at al, all I did was post about it and gave my input during the design process. Todd & Keaton make it all possible. :lol:

Btw, pay close attention to the top of the site as the images rotate. This is a linkin park forum first as far as I am aware :).

Good work guys, thanks for the effort.
As soon as I've saved up more than $10 I'll be donating too, since I now have a credit card ;)

Derek

Yeah we deliberately went a little darker on this skin because many people had stated the default LPA Fourskin was too bright. This is our answer lol.

Great work on the skin as always Todd/Keaton!

I really like this theme. So far, the direction the band are going with the art for the album has the potential to be the best since Hybrid Theory.

It's actually a TV distortion effect. It's meant to look like video noise :D.

I know this may seem a little crazy, but when you make the next ATS forum skin using the album cover or something you should make an actual website one too. Then they could match........but I guess thats going to very difficult, am I right?

We'll have to wait and see. We try to take our time with design choices. Unlike the forums, the main site not only uses different coding but it also requires certain different design decisions. It's possible we'll do something, but nothing can be said until we actually see the art and can assess how it may be utilized as design elements. I'm just going to leave it at that. :)

We've considered it, but unfortunately the main site is set up a LOT differently than the actual forums. There's a lot of special coding that went into the main site you see, and therefore it makes it hard to just have a switchable skin that can be changed back and forth at will. However, as more art becomes available we'll certainly consider a small re-design if we can do it and if time allows. :)

What a forum skin for the album cover? :P

Yea man, it would be easier just to make new forum skins to add variety. If the new LP music video for TC has a lot of colour in it then it would add a new make-over with themes from that which could add a nice touch provided that it's easy on the eyes. oh yea and its gotta be sexy too.

Lol you could have an elephant at the top and vuvuzelas for button images. soooo old now but it totally has teh lulz factor.
