Greetings again, everybody. Welcome to the Style and Skins post here on Pushing the Envelope. Some of you may be used to having to be stuck with only one skin for the forum that you are on, well not here at Pushing the Envelope. We know that not everyone has the same tastes. So, with that in mind, we have added a possibility of "8" different looks for the forum depending upon everyones individual tastes, moods, likes, etc.

To Change your Skin Style:

1) Click on your "Profile"

2) Now, if you haven't been here yet, this is where you can add avatars, include contact info, reset your password, set your clock, language, and choose the style you want. The default is SubTrail - the green skin. Choose one of the other styles and apply. If you don't like it, you can always return and change it again.

Remember, this is your board too. Who are we to tell you what you are forced to view. Change your Style as often or as little as you like.


Happy posting and have fun!


Phineas J. Whoopee

Just a quick reminder for all those here......

Many of you may have overlooked this, but there are several styles/color schemes here available.
I was tinkering with the settings myself a few minutes ago.
Its easy to change the color , just as Phineas directed above.
It is also noteworthy to realize, that a change like this may slightly affect the layout. Specifically across the top, or along the side of the board's main page.

My personal favorites are the default "subtrail", and the "redsilver".
For something really different, the "neverwinternights" is interesting.
For those that liked the soft blue of the "other place", then the "subsilver" might be the way to go.

One more note- about the PMs here on the board.
As a default, we have opted NOT to have a pop-up announcement alerting you to PMs.
So in some cases, unless you are specifically looking for PMs once you arrive, you may overlook them.

I personally like the "pop-up" notification when I log in, so I simply changed the setting. Once again, this is located in your profile, and is easily changed.

Be aware that DrM and I decided to make this place more customizeable/user-friendly, right from the beginning.

Yeah I like the subsilver best, for some reason I find it more comfortable to gaze at than the others.

Its good, but I had enough of the blue over the years, although it is easy on the eyes.

I am now partial to the dull green of the default "subtrail". I think the type and posts stand out nicely.

But I do like having the ability to switch back and forth a bit, and I am sure not everyone here knew about this, or possibly had forgotten.

Yeah, I really found the dull grey of the Outer Limits Cafe offputting, even though it does suit the black and white image of the show.

Funny you mention that Rorschach.

DrM actually designed it to be much more "simplistic", and plain, in comparison to the "That Other Joint" and other boards.
The black and white scheme just happened to match TOL logo perfectly, but it was plain by design.

It was only added as a "subforum" to the other place.

Too bad that board never really had a chance, because of many factors, including the sourness of the "That Other Joint" associated.
But everything worked out for the best, and as my signature said for a brief stint at the "That Other Joint", before the exodus.............."sometimes things work out perfectly, and everyone gets what they want,and what they deserve".

That raised a few eyebrows. :twisted:

I took a peek at these right after Phineas' initial post and really felt quite acclimated with the subtrail style. I would say my second favorite is the much different 'neverwinternights' TZ DZ spoke of, and third would be 'illusion'. As it turns out, I preferred subtrail most and really have not strayed from it.

Have Fun & Happy Posting,

Just a quick bump here, to mention something to the members.

A few of you may not even know that the ability to change your "board skin" (or color and layout) is available.
As noted earlier in this thread, you can change it to whichever you want, of all of the choices. This is located in your "profile", and is very easy to change. Phineas was nice enough to post small examples of many of them.

Now what many of you may NOT know, is DrM and I have been talking a bit about the next upgrade, and how its going to affect us.
I don't know too much yet, but there are a few surprises, that seem interesting.
There MAY* be a small "arcade" section, where we can play a few games etc. etc.

Anyhow, the reason I bring this up here, is because we are choosing some new skin colors and themes for the new board and upgrade.
We are trying to make an effort, to get several of the same, for those of us who want to keep somethig similar.
Also, if you have any suggestions or preference for colors, state it here and we will try and get something close to what you might like.
Obviously, we won't be able to post every choice of skin here, but if you give a vague description, we will see what we can do, and maybe we can find something close for the new upgrade.

For what its worth, I am still using the "subtrail" currently, which is the default green, that everyone first sees when they join.

If you haven't already done so, I suggest that you go and tinker with the different setting/colors above. You might find another scheme/layout that you like better.

Nice bump, TZ DZ Fan! :D

Being that the upgrade will be utilizing PHP3 - we are currently using PHP2 - most of our currents skins will go bye-bye. However, below is a list of available skins that we have to choose from. If you do a google/Yahoo/Ask search for any of the names presented, you can get a better idea of how they will look.

Keep in mind - this is your forum too! We are not here to restrict your personal layout by forcing only (1) skin upon you. We would like everyone here to have a choice in their viewing styles. This is how we have always had it setup since day one. Freedom of choice is what we are all about. So, please, take a look at the names and do a quick search and let us know. After all - if you don't tell us - it most likely won't happen.


How to Find:
Copy and paste the template name into your favorite search engine and then add: phpBB 3 template behind the name. Example: 610nm phpBB 3 template

A vast majority of these templates can also be found here: www.awesomestyles.com

Greetings All,

Although it is not included on the above list, I believe we can still make template requests too, as long as they are version 3.0.4.

I'd like to request both of the following:

Pro Night. It fits well with our TZ and TOL themes
http://www.awesomestyles.com/demo/pronight

Getaway Green. It looks like an updated version of our default skin now.
http://www.awesomestyles.com/demo/getaway-green

I strongly encourage all our members to take a look and see if they have any preferences from the list above or that they may find on another site. As DrMoreau alluded to, we can't provide you with what you want if you don't speak up.

Have Fun & Happy Posting,
Phineas J. Whoopee

Both GetawayGreen and ProNight have been added to the FreeForums Style schemes - so we will have these when we get upgraded.

Does anyone else have any requests?

I am bumping this up, in the hopes that others will see this once again, and take a look over the thread.
Here we have all the skin styles, and even a glimpse at quite a few of them.


Now is the time to speak up and make a choice or two, to add in to our options for available skins.

Phineas, please add in "BrownCom" that you have pictured above, to our choices.
It is a light brown and green, and isn't too far off from our old green that a few of us have become accustomed to.


Speak up now people! It is all of our board, and YOU have some input as to what you can have as choices.

The skin I was using before the changeover was "Aliens". So if that one can be brought back, I'd really appreciate it.

BrownCom is a 2.0 skin we used to have. Can't use that anymore. Matter of fact - I am removing the old images as to not confuse anyone.

Here is a list of the 3.05 skins we have to choose from. http://pushingtheenvelope.freeforums.org/post24009.html#p24009

Not quite Aliens, but yes, pretty close. I like the X-Treme Green and will use this skin.

Those are some of those lovely guests that we would see lingering around.

Basically, they are search engine crawlers and bots - which is a good thing. We are being indexed for easier finding on the World Wide Web.
