a new LPA skin? KETCHUP THEME
i'd use that xD
I'm not so sure that's gonna happen . Keaton does most of the designs, and he might find spending hours working on a forum for ketchup a bit odd.
but when mike comes of the forums hell be like "omg lol and jump out of his char"
But just think how awesome it would be. It would be so...red . Hell, I'd do it if I had the power/knowledge haha.
Can we at least keep something that doesn't relate to fucking ketchup please?
Derek could take away your admin position, then you wouldn't be red anymore. There, that's one non ketchup thing .
...and it would be a POSSIBLE theme. You wouldn't have to select it
couldn't you just copy this theme here, but change it all to red and change the images and then uplaod it again?
keep all the file names the same even if they are changed, that would be easy
Not as easy as that. It was that easy with vBulletin 3, but then vBulletin ignored the whole "if it aint broke don't fix it" mentality and made forum skinning an absolute nightmare. While we have more custom designs with LPA4 than we ever did in the past, each design took a lot more than it seems to create.

Again...the making of the images is not the problem. It's the fact that vBulletin has added a LOT and I mean A LOT more things to be recolored in vB4 than there was in the past.
To give you a good idea, I'm not sure if you were here when we launched the ATS skin, but for at least 2-3 weeks later...certain things kept popping up that we forgot to skin (error messages, parts of the profile pages [which still don't look perfect], and hidden things we wouldn't find without heavy testing). When vb3 was out, recoloring was a cinch. We could literally just recolor some images/links and we'd be good to go.
Sadly that isn't the case with the new vB. Todd can explain it likely better than I could. He's the one who crawls into the fetal position and cries for a few hours at the thought of having to code the new designs .
I'm not going to fight for it like Necro is. I was half joking . But it would be cool...lol
Basically, vB 4's skinning system completely sucks. I'm not entirely opposed to making a new skin, but it has to be tasteful and something people will use. I'm not going to bang my head against the wall making a skin that will be all red, looks like your screen is covered in ketchup, and is so fugly no one will actually use it for more than 30 seconds for a good laugh.
would be great if everyone got the ketchup joke to begin with failing that it's a major fucking eyesore and a waste of visual trash for the forums appearance.
I was wondering when Sarah would be back with her bashing of everything
I had the most witty comeback but my phone stuffed up and deleted it. Bottom line I saw your girlfriend on the Harry Potter marathon last night and then I thought of you and then I puked a little in my mouth.
The ketchup joke gone too far.
I missed you, too
afraid to try the ketchup are ya?
