Yep.

Load them into cannons, load the cannons into bigger cannons, launch the cannons into orbit, then launch them back down into the Marianas Trench.

@  Patchouli Kn... : (06 December 2016 - 06:12 PM)

Load them both into cannons and fire them into orbit.

@  BlackMax : (06 December 2016 - 05:19 PM)

We'll load Trump into the cannon and shoot ~him at~ Bieber. Problem solved.

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 December 2016 - 04:08 PM)

Oh yeah, like I had enough left over for a safety net after buying the cannon. I work retail here!

@  Telly : (06 December 2016 - 03:12 PM)

so long as theres a safety net i can land in sure!

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 December 2016 - 03:09 PM)

Hey man, I didn't get this comically large cannon to NOT shoot somebody out ot it. So unless you're volunteering to take his place.....

@  Telly : (06 December 2016 - 03:02 PM)

cant we just shoot him, full stop??

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 December 2016 - 03:01 PM)

Can't we just like, shoot him out of a comically large cannon or something?

@  Paladin : (06 December 2016 - 02:59 PM)

first you agree to throw Justin Bieber out into the cold & let him freeze to death...

@  BlackMax : (06 December 2016 - 02:14 PM)

Say, give us all the Tim Horton's and about 700 kilos of Coffee Crisps and we'll take all the cold. How about it?

@  BlackMax : (06 December 2016 - 02:13 PM)

Well hey, let's not be hasty. Canada and the US are allies, we're all friends here on this board, maybe we can negotiate.

@  Telly : (06 December 2016 - 02:11 PM)

@  BlackMax : (06 December 2016 - 04:37 AM)

Well not any more I'm not.:(

@  Telly : (05 December 2016 - 07:59 PM)

@blackmax-cold leads to snow. snow leads to delayed shipments. delayed shipments lead to a paranoid blackmax. are you SURE you want the cold??

I'm just glad the regular Decepticon theme was an option, but yeah the new theme is a bit lacking. Also, I question having it as the default theme.

The layout and use of patterns is pretty cool. I'm all about the checks and hazard stripes. But, I will not be using the skin with the current color combination. The lilac and fuschia really are entirely too much in combination with the purple.

It's nothing permanent and if it bothers you that much you can change it in the bottom left hand corner of the page. I go with Gears myself.

Right, but is there any interest in revising it? The overall sunniness of the theme is quite likeable, it's just... man. That combo of lilac and fuschia is really unfortunate.

The theme is a week-long promotion for Botcon, based on the color palettes of the Animated Stunticons. Send your complaints to Motormaster. icon-fire.gif

But yeah, if it's too eye-searing, go ahead and change back. I like it though, it feels celebratory!

I created the skin. There's a thread in TFD about it.

The theme is still up for tweaks. I've been using it permanently for the past few days so I can tweak problems as they come along. If there are readability concerns, by all means let me know and I will change them. I made a dozen tweaks based on Allspark staff feedback and a few more after it went live. I'd like to solidify the color palette for a longterm (optional) theme at some point.

If you have a problem with "garish-ness"--well, I won't apologize for that. icon-fire.gif

Also, I do plan on making a pony theme at some point. Also optional, but only because the rest of the staff is stopping me. icon-arcee.gif

My biggest issue with it is that the values are almost all the same. If you take a screenshot and desaturate it in photoshop then it all blends in together.

I would darken the background to push it further into the back. This will save some eyestrain from trying to focus on all of it at once.
