Hey guys I know I am a newbie but i have been a fan of xp-erience and lately been outta town and just got back and went to xp-erience and was redirectd to here and saw the new skin i must admit it is a nice skin! Although it really makes me doubtful that we made it or downloaded it? because i remember seeing the same thing somewhere else before to..so i investigated...and the results amazed me...thought i might share it..the admins will probably hate me for this but you know...also i liked the old skin better it was easy to read and view..this is a little hard on my eyes..

So if we didn't make it download it, did it just appear? We purchased the skin (among others as my signature indicates) so that we could concentrate on restoring the rest of the site to it's former glory. All the hacks were removed to ensure that the issues we were experiencing were not related to my fiddling (turns out they weren't.. heh - waitng for vb3 tho)

There is no shame in paying good money for a kickass theme, I do prefer light colours myself but thats what the future themes will bring.

Ever hear of "out sourcing"?
All large businesses/organizations use it.
That's where they got me from.
Then I just wouldn't leave.
And they were stuck with me.
Sad. =\

We didnt make the default vB skin that was on the old site either.
It doesn't matter what skin the site uses as long as its functional and looks good.

There's no trouble.
I can see why people are curious about the skin as it IS used elsewhere and was purchased un-exclusively.
But im sure if these people took time to look around that there are plenty of sites that also use the default VirtuaNews and vB skins as XP-erience used to.
When the site was re-launched as NTFS.org we could have left it as it was, or invest even more money into it and make it look that little bit smarter.
So it was an obvious choice to make it look nicer for the users.

well said, every forum has a theme but its the users and the posts that make them worth reading and posting on. Fair play for getting a theme says me.

No, I made it from scratch ;)

:) EP with all those hacks you added, I saw that xp-erience looked like, then when you reverted to regular VB for a few days, I was dead shocked.

All those modifications you did, really showed. Without them, xperience looked like crap.

vb3, which release is imminant, features all the hacks I previously had installed. Not worth installing them now when we will upgrade a little while after it is released.
