  • Multiverse Theme

    Just wondered what theme everyone uses for browsing the Multiverse. I'm currently using Black Blade which is fab. I'm probably behind the times here as I've only just found out about the ability to change which theme one can browse Multiverse in by following a thread Berry posted elswhere on the forum. :roll:

    I use whichever one the default one is... sort of greyish blue with nasty orange text. I did look through the other themes, but I couldn't decide which one to have, so in the end I just stayed with the default one.

    This anecdote will not be appearing in my autobiography ('Dee for Dee-lightful') (or possibly 'Dee for In-Dee-cisive').

      Where and how does one view the other themes? I tried through profile and all I get is one option - Board Style: SubSilver. If that's it, how do I get more options?

        Krunky, I found it from the 'Your Account' link on the bottom of the sidebar on the left in the Modules section, then the 'themes' button on the next page. There was the option to choose from a drop down list of about twelve themes.

          Yeah, and they all suck except for ExtraLite (the default) and Black Blade, which is sweet. It does have a couple of flash tidbits, so you may have to download that, unless your are using Microsoft Exploder.

            Yes, Berry is absolutely correct. BlackBlade is at least very "designed." The others seem somewhat thrown together.

              I found that I can't use blackblade. Too harsh.
              just using the computer with more normal, generic graphics and layout
              is hard enough on my eyes and brain!

                :!: Okay, well, I follow Grey Mouser's instyructions to a tee and when I click the "Theme" link, it just reloads the same page. No dropdown for themes, just the same old one for selecting a site from which to read the Headlines. I shoulkd add that the url in my browser indicates that it has loaded the "chngtheme" page...

                If I click "Edit User" I get "Access Denied".

                I would like to see this Black Blade Theme of which you all speak.

                  Mmm, that's odd. Perhaps the Black Blade theme is mystical, like Tanelorn, and you can only get to it in the right frame of mind. Seriously though, I just tried again and it seems ok, perhaps Berry, Chris or Von might be able to shed some light. If all else fails PWV I'll take a screen print and post it here.

                    Oh, hey. It works here on my home computer. Looks pretty cool. I'm going back to the original now; this is too much to get used too.

                    It does make me rethink the use of colored fonts in my posts, though. Dark Blue, for instance, is nearly illegible in this (Black Blade) theme.

                      Your computer at work probably has a content filter on the network smacking cookies down. Or your IE prefs are different. Or anything really could be fux0ring with your ability to mess with themes.

                        Yes, these oppressive work environments are a drag. Though it may be my IE settings, because my login cookie seems to work (most of the time, anyway).

                        Oh, and it's "get used to," not "get used too." Sheesh. I really should be more careful. :?

                          Glad you got to try it out at last Psychic. Yes, it can jar the senses a little when you first use it, as it's quite a contrast to the default. After using it for 3 days though I don't think I can go back now. :twisted:

                            Hmmm, the "Black Blade" does seem to have that affect on some...

                              I use the Black Blade theme. Though right now with a motherboard puking out on this POS computer, Im stuck with 16 color 640 x 480 res and blade black is atrocious on that setting. Im using who knows what now, just something to tolorate until I get this system fixed.

                              Actually whatever site Im on, if theres an option to customize, I always use the black theme. My desktop is set for black *shrug* Its my fav color so you can be sure thats how everything is set up if I can help it. ^_^
