As you can tell we uploaded a few new skins. We're trying to make things as visually appealing as possible for you guys. What do you think of each skin? Do you hate a certain one? What skins to you want to see kept and worked on more? Nothing is final with our skins and they are just at the 'base' level so take that into mind. They might change a bit. Tell us what you think so we can better your experience here at Knightly Gamers. Thank you for your time.

I personally like Executive and Utopia for the "light" skins and Coldspace and Fenix for the darker ones. Coldspace needs work, though. It has problems with quote text and the edit box looks atrocious. Fenix needs quite a bit of work but I think it has potential. Utopia needs a banner and stuff, but banners can be worked on AFTER we finalize what skins we want.

I love Fenix, Royalty and Coldspace. Royalty and Coldspace are nice and cool dark skins while Fenix has it's own level of awesomeness with the dark colours it has. It kinda reminds me of a racing game kind of theme though (? Maybe I've just been playing too much Forza). Executive is pretty sweet for the light skins. It's got it's own smart and classy feel to it and off course it looks like one of the more professional kind of skins. I don't know much about Utopia. I like it but it needs to be more personalized (like the icons and background). Yeah, I like these skins you guys choose. Good job with the banners and stuff btw guys. :x

You guys are terrible at feedback. Make up your freaking minds so that we can cut off the skins we don't want and I can make some fucking banners for the other ones.

Maybe more people besides me should vote in the poll so that we have a quantitative measure of which skins are liked and not liked. When I voted I was shocked like WOW EVERYONE AGREES WITH ME COMPLETELY until I realized that I was the only vote. Come on, guys.

 

I think Utopia is a great basic/default skin for the forums. It needs new "new post" icons, though.

Executive could look a LOT better with a small splash of color in there somewhere (likely just adding a color to the "new post" icons or the headers)

 

Coldspace is easily my favorite, and Fenix is nice since it's a really pretty warm skin.

 

Nightfall is pretty bland, color-wise, and has a rather outdated layout/image base to it that would be tough to fix. Royalty just has too many colors for my tastes, when compared with Coldspace and Fenix.

Well, I'll look at the results of the polls tomorrow at 8 PM EST. That'll be the cut off date for the skin voting. I'm not gonna vote since I don't want to be biased about this based on which skin I think would be the easiest to make banners for. o.o So yeah.

No skin is greater than the main/utopia skin. If removed, heads will roll.

Based on the votes. No one seems to care for Nightfall, at all. Royalty seems to be hated as well. So It's safe to assume those guys will be gone alright? That leaves us with Utopia (our lightskin), Executive (our Neutral skin), Fenix (Our warm skin) and Coldspace (our Dark skin). I think those four skins are great for us and we can do a lot with them. Now, which do you want worked on more/first? What would you like to see the skin have? What do you want the banner to look like? The new and old post icons? Give us your thoughts for feedback please.

Eh, I generally hate lighter skins because that means more light in my eyes, and higher frequency photons, so I stick to the darker ones that look nice. Helps my body fall tired so I can go to bed and have an excuse to be on the computer even though I told not to be.

What would you guys like to see in each of the respective skins? I know Fenix needs work, but what characters, themes etc would you like to see? Coldspace will remain a nice dark skin, but I was wondering if Iggy/Kai/Blade/Val could do something about the quote boxes in it. They're all blurry and gross. Aside from that,the edit box could be changed, but I'm not complaining if it wasn't. Executive seems nice to me, but people want to see new new/old icons, so yeah, we can throw some of those together. I was thinking since Executive is our neutral skin, we could do a nice light/dark concept with it like we did with Dissidia, which was one of my favorite skins in the old forums. Alternatively, I wouldn't mind making it a FFXIII skin, since it has that nice sleek look that FFXIII's menus and HUD etc have. What do you guys think?

COLDSPACE

I can remove the drop shadow in quote boxes no problem.

That background for the banner up top is pretty gross. You mentioned liking to make nebula and the like, so if you could scrape something nice together, that'd be really awesome.

Banner-wise, I think the current font face/style looks nice, so mimicking that with our site's name would probably make the skin look really sharp.

This skin also needs better new/old post icons, since it doesn't even have custom ones. Not sure exactly what to do with them, but if the new background banner up top has a non-blue accent color, the new post icons could pick up that color and make it look cohesive and sexier than it currently does.

 

FENIX

This one is one that needs more work on the back end, rather than the gfx end. Gotta remove the duplicated Forums button and get rid of the non-english parts.

As far as a banner for that skin goes, I think the current one's style (in the background) is neat and really nice, so duplicating that (and changing it a bit) would be good. Over the top, though, I'd like to see something along the lines of (but executed better than) the current Royalty banner. I think fire and that red Knight would look really nice there, as long as the fire is kept MORE toward the orange-yellow side and less toward the red side.

 

UTOPIA

I think Utopia is 10000% sexy the way it is. Adding a serious "banner" to the skin could very easily take away what makes the skin so nice. Simplicity here is definitely priority 1, I think.

It DOES need better post icons, though. Those default ones are just ugly.

Aside from that, I don't think Utopia needs any work.

 

EXECUTIVE

This skin really only needs a splash of color to make it not so bland. Even if the color is desaturated and barely visible, it needs to be there. I suggest coloring the headers for each section, since that's something that pervades every page of the skin, rather than only appearing on the index. The color could then be picked up in the shield in the banner and it would be a more interesting, nicer skin (at least in my opinion; feel free to disagree).

Yeah, I wouldnt mind throwing something that's all spacey and nebula like. What colors should I use? Make it cold since Fenix is our warmer dark skin? I can use blues and silvers etc to make it all nice.

Yeah, we can definitely re use the stock from "Deviant" for Fenix. I can give the fire a phoenix like shape to make it look even nicer and tie into the whole theme of the skin.

Yeah, I don't mind that at all. New icons can definitely be something we can throw together.

I'm all for that, as well. Can I ask you to do that, though? I don't even have the files for the skin o.o

For Utopia I was gonna do some shield icons that could be white/blue like in the banner for new posts (New Posts would be a bright blue color). I think that would work nicely.

For a dark banner I'd love to see Warrior of Light in his red ff1 costume. He's a knight and stuff so, yeah. Go Chivalry!

 

Also, a school themed one. Go Crusaders!

The green and orange ones look nice. They actually would blend really well with the skin overall. They arent too dark either like the purple is, but thats just me.

I really like the orange. I think it's a nice tone, and I'm super fond of grays with orange. Silver and green is another of my favorite color combinations, but I tend to like bluer greens with the silvers, and I don't think that would really look as good as the orange does, so yeah.
