I like where that is going. Typography isn't great though.

I agree. However, the default HB skin should be agreed on by most seeing as it will be the "face" of the new forum.




Also whoever made the current HB image I think did a decent job all things considered. A thought for the group, do we what to make the HB default image a bite of FFVII or something of our own?

ahahaha Ok I love this post and was the only reason why I will post in the SPAM forum one more time. But for reals, nothing important should be in this board.

I can change it to the black version if you want, it pretty much does exactly this but instead of grey headers it uses light-black one's.

I was looking into it before for the bee theme, but it was utterly disappointing.

Yeah, just a placeholder.  Since Uganda Pikachu has made the current banner which is pretty good, I have shamelessly copied it and stuck it in place of the previous text.  Although I think maybe a different, less-photorealistic background would be better, I would still like to hear what you guys think

can we do alternating banners, like for example 4chan does?

theoretically yes

A chocobo one and probably some more Final Fantasy related ones would be good to cycle through. But they would have to be a standard size

we should do alternating banners. make one with the PD blastoise, one FF7 honey bee inn inspired one, etc.

How are you going to attract the artistic homosexuals you desperately crave with a banner that has WOMEN on it?

I changed it, but now it is fucking with the logo.

Don't anyone freak out on me, its literally a one button change, I can change it back in like 2 seconds.

I explained it in another thread, I literally clicked a button that changed it to a more black header lay out as by Law's request.

If you don't like it, just say so, I can change it back like SUPER easy.

You guys can use this chocobo I drew

I mean I LIKE the changing banners, but I don't think it should be a default option. I think we should focus on a "pure" default HB look, the rest can be custom skins. This isn't going to be an overnight thing but I personally like the directions everyone is heading. Although Rayne, your's looks like a Hooters ad or a cheap Pokemorph porn site. All great places of course but is that the true "HB vision?"  Huh Huh Huh Huh Huh Huh Huh
