I knew someone who got put in the calzone by a girl. Tomato sauce burns are no laughing matter.

@  TheMightyMol... : (05 May 2016 - 12:57 PM)

If you leave your mass graves open for random people to lie naked in, you're doing it wrong.

@  Paladin : (05 May 2016 - 12:53 PM)

isn't "friendzone" a made-up thing creepers use to comfort themselves when they get shot down by women who wouldn't willingly lie naked with them in a mass grave?

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.
