Situation on this is fluid, so with the new options I'd like to ask what people want to do.

Sehson's shown quite a flair for creating decent skins off the base style with the inbuilt generator. We can use those quite happily, and there are two so far (Dark and Dark-Red, the second being pretty close to the strip's theme) that are pretty nifty. We can develop those if need be, perhaps generating more as time goes on.

I can happily buy in other skins instead (or as well). Sites for these are www.extremepixels.com (http://www.extremepixels.com) (possibly not as reliable as once were) and http://vb4style.com/icart.php is the other contender. If you vote for that option, please state in this thread which style and from where - even from another skinner, but please make sure it's up to 4.0.4 version.

I wish this wasn't happening quite so erratically, but events are beyond my control.

I kinda like the Dark-Red option, so voted for making the inhouse skins.

When You think of colors, consider the colors Jennie uses in the devil and angle. Not all reds go together nor light blues.

I'm no help really, I just want it to feel "warm"/comforting/welcoming.... I will try coming back to this when I'm awake/using the rest of my brain.

Looks like people seem to like these skins Sehson's come up with. If anyone has any comments or requests, please make them known.

Give me a color pallete and I'll give it a try, I'm visually oriented and not very heat resistant, I get too warm if its 70F, so Warm unfortunately means something different to me then most, show me what a warm pallet is to you is and I'll work with it.

I am liking the new thread icons. They match nicely with the logo, keep Jennie's theme intact and seem to work with most of the skins. Thanks for your work.

Very good I approve. Is there any way to work in the Pretty pretty princess as one? Just a thought.

Sehson

There is mainly the 4 thread icons, If I had a good pretty princess image to work from I could make that the moved thread icon.

Can't you just ask Jennie for one?

Possibly, I'll do that once I get these done, there is 30+ icons, even though you only see the 4, each little addon is actually a completely different Icon.

It's not hard but time consuming, dealing with layers then saving into different files, and making sure the names are right, and all the icons are there. And after about an hour your eyes are going batty :P

I would help but I doubt you want to make me a mod.

I can upload those quite easily to replace current icons if everyone's happy with them. A two-minute job, though it's likely to be tonight after work. I'll need nudging.

Let me finish the entire batch and I'll let you know. I'm only about half way done.

OK Raps will be uploading the new icons to the server tonight his time.

here's a preview of the new icons in addition to the ones you've seen and yes they look better then the contact sheet like the ones above.

And as you can see the Pretty Princess made it in there with a moving van for the moved threads. :dp:
