    Provide feedback on current and perhaps new forum styles.
    I won't be making changes to Donkie's themes (dark, lite, beta, http://f.devinity.org/u9Ncpd) unless he says something about it.

    Post suggestions and feedback on how I can "try" to improve user experience on our forums. Please don't suggest ridiculous things or go overboard. At the moment, I'm only making styles that are parented from Devinity Dark style (so no styles that have a different layout than Dark). And no, I don't think I can alter or remove Decap's color names/tags so deal with it.

    Maybe can we make a feature where we can have a color swatch where we can choose the color we want the forums highlighted?

    Just because you inherit Devinity Dark doesn't mean you can't change stuff. You can change layout and everything.

    Names are the color they are set to, so for them it will be red.

    I think he's talking about the hyperlinks to the threads.

    My two cents though is that I love green theme, I will never again be able to use default theme.

    Ah, I see what you mean. Color Picker so you can change the layout of the theme. (Green ---> any color you want, lets say pink)

    Can you make it so normal player's names are the same as the green colour you use in the theme? And see how that looks in shoutbox ect? People complain about how boring the grey looks.

    Probably not something I can do, but maybe Donkie can..?
    I changed everything you showed except the leaderboards and server logs link colors because I can't seem to find their css files.

    I did that for a second and it hurts my eyes. I'll turn it back on for awhile.
    Edit: regular colors reverted.

    given this is a fucking stickied thread for some reason can we have somebody work on a lighter theme that looks like a community that doesn't have clinical depression with all the greys?

    surely it isnt me that hates the plain dark greys, surely somewhere between the sad grey and piercing white there are actually nice colours?

    So there are the Seasonal Forum Styles, Halloween and Christmas. I'm using the Halloween one and found some issues with it.

    1. Some Replies don't get shown in the correct (Purple) Color upload_2018-9-2_20-26-41.png

    2. The Staff List has every Moderator with a very Bright Red Background Color which makes it very hard to look at:
    upload_2018-9-2_20-27-21.png


    And the last is a little request, Is it possible to add the Halloween themed Forum Style as a Permanent one called "Purple" for every user?

    Okay thank you for reporting the issues. I was working on the theme yesterday but stopped halfway so everything will be done and finalized before October starts

    And yes I will most definitely consider making it a permanent style
