Hello everyone here at Arcanta. If your new, then you should know I'm pretty much the webmaster around here. I do all the coding and add skins and scripts. I host all our files and the chat. I also moderate forums, so be nice to me. tongue.gif

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
First I'll explain what I have added since we started the site.

Affliates- This little feature is located above the chat box. It has a button that links directly to any site we are affliated with. Currently Genesis is the only one.

The Chat Box- This is so far our most used feature. It is located at the bottem of every page and updates each post/reload. It allows you to chat with everyone here on Arcanta. Do not abuse it, and by that I mean follow forum rules. I can and will ban you from it and give a warning to you on the site. Impersonation is bad, I can chack IPs. Also i ask everyone puts in their email address, not a requirment but its something I'd like.

The News Box- This nifty little feature appears right at the top of the site. It contains useful information that everyone should follow. It will be updated frequently to point out pressing issues. Do not ignore this box, it may have important stuff in it. Hovering your mouse over it stops the scrolling feature. Admins must PM me if they want to know how to work it, or at least give me soemthing new to post in it.

Forum Skin Changer- The Skin Changer was added by popular demand. It is in the updating phase, but it works for now. It's located in the bottom under Affliates in the left corner. Not to hard to miss. I will always keep 5 skins in it to choose for the forum. To see more on skins read the next part since this is still a W.I.P.

I think a brighter gold would look cooler.

*sigh* Figures, I try to make it easy on me but someone has to have a problem. tongue.gif Just kidding... anyways you don't know how to do it? Or you don't know what I mean by putting a number and whether you like a skin or not after it?

Example for you:

CODE

1) Sucks, too bright
2) Brilliant, default skin for sure
3) Eww it looks like garbage
4) Nice, too bright though
5) Awesome


To do that you type [code] where it starts, then you do it again but like this [/code.] without that period inside it at the end of your post.

Oh the names of the skins in the skin changer, they will be numbered, they are not up yet, but thats what I want to happen when I do set it up, should be shortly. Sorry for not explaining that better. tongue.gif

@ Rhineville - Hm, well I wasn't planning on it, but I will. I'm no photshop/PSP master, but I could still do it. I keep thinking twitch is doing it, then remembering he is on Genesis.

NOTE ~~ Skin Changer will be up in 5min.

I could do it, but I'm quite busy, plus I think it could be done better.

1. It's alright, but too similar to my Genesis forums for my taste, plus, I don't like the blue contrast against the black and green.

2. This is pretty sleek and awesome, but a bit light for my tastes. I may get used to this in time.

3. This is alright, but plain at the same time. I could get used to this, though.

4. Oooh, I'm liking this, though it's not Arcanta-oriented. Still, it's a sweet skin.

5. Although this is nice, it needs new icons since they contrast so much, and it isn't Arcanta-oriented.

6. My views toward this are the same view I have toward Brown Sugar, or numero three.

7. Of course I like this, but I want to differentiate between Genesis and Arcanta.

8. Ooooh, very sleek and nice, very...a bit light again, but I could get used to this.

9. This is alright, but not Tabrien-oriented enough for me.
---------------------------------------------
I'm going to have to go with number eight on this one.

1. cool
2. thats great. like steampunk
3. eh... little like the runs for me...
4. I like. nice and dark for the emop rpers smile.gif
5. extremely hard to read. no go.
6. I like it, kinda greek in the look of the bronze and background.
7. nostalgia is always fun
8. It would be my favorite if there was more contrast overall, even just in the text.
9. cramped? why? otherwise its good, kinda like 4.

Overall I think there needs to be a more aged, rustic looking one for the 'main' look.

Also, for the beigr tech some of the type is too light, especially on the main page.

Also Biege Tech is way out of place, like nothing appears in the heading spots, which sucks. I'll start looking for more. EVERYONE GO HERE!

http://forums.ifskinzone.net/index.php?showforum=20 to find skins, PM me which ones you like. It makes it easier on me maybe. smile.gif

CODE
1) Cool, but would not at all fit Arcanta.
2) This is cool, but a little too metallic/futuristic looking.
3) This one has potential, but I think it needs to be a little lighter, and have some texture added to it.
4) To futuristic and metallic looking. Also, a little too dark.
5) This is cool, but again, to futuristic/metallic, plus it makes it hard to read the text.
6) I like this. My main gripe is that it's slightly too shiny for something medieval-fantasy-esque.
7) Cool, but would not at all fit Arcanta.
8) Cool... something about it just doesn't feel right though... I can't quite place my finger on it though... if this were tweaked just a little to give it a more medieval-fantasy feel, this would be perfect.
9) Cool, but it doesn't fit.


I'd have to say my favorite is 8, followed by 6, then 3.

Not sure what can be added to medival-fantasy it up, IMO though the text eeds changing to black.

Lol people have a tendancy to not follow rules. Surprisingly Sirence followed them, no harm done I guess. Shouldn't have bothered typing them up in the first place. laugh.gif

Surprisingly? What's that supposed to mean? sad.gif

And yeah, I think the text needs to be changed to black. If possible, a very, very dark brown or yellow would look better than black.
