Graphite is my favorite, mostly because its compact. Note you can collapse the sidebar.

Yeah, that collapsable sidebar just made that skin a ton more awesome for me :3

Ah well. Anything dark suits my taste

I like deflection, also there's a thread called "anus" in the velvet one. it's asking for the most common size.

OH! You can customize the header color in Thoreau Dark and Graphite! I like them a lot more, I have a nice cerulean. :D

We have both Thoreau and Thoreau dark installed, we're still fixing it up, but its usable now if you guys want to switch to it.
It looks like Thoreau Dark won, and we decided to have Thoreau also as the bright alternative, since it was a discount if we buy both. The only one left we're going to add after this is Slate, for mobile phone users. Spending spree over.

I noticed the forum software you use is commercial too. There's plenty of free software out there (we toyed with phpBB, but went with SMF), can I ask your reason for choosing this software?

Thoreau-Dark is the new forum default skin, complete with sandvichly delicious new logo. If you're not a fan of dark skins, Thoreau-Dark's light colored counterpart is available by using the drop-down menu at the bottom of the page.

A handy feature available on all three of our new skins (Thoreau, Thoreau-Dark, and Graphite) is the ability to set the text size, typeface, and the color of the headers individually. Access this by clicking the small pallet icon (Posted Image) and play with it to your heart's content.

I'll update this with a few of the new features available after a bit.

Whaa, it just changed my skin to this new setup, and IP-Duo isn't on the list anymore. Any chance that will make a return in the near future?

My eyes just came.

On a side note, the ad banner is much easier to spot now. Sneaky sneaky!

Hey Neh, would it be okay for me to recolor some of the icons to old ones? (Eg hot topics red, locked yellow, etc)
Otherwise, I love this skin too much.

Meh, it's okay in my opinion. It's just going to be really hard to get used to this. I loved IP-Duo so much. :wacko:

Thank you good sir.

Let's give it at least a day or two for people to get used to it, it hasn't even been around for more than an hour yet.

The sandwich on the banner looks jaggedy. Needs some gaussian blur or AA or something

Also, the smilies have a white outline around them, a tad annoying

Other than that, I fucking love this

I guess I'm weird, but I kind of like it.

It has this 8-bit pixelated sandvich look to it.

I'm probably just not used to it, but the read/unread of non-popular just seem kind of too similar =/
