I noticed that the two current skins may be a little slow, especially for 56k users. I think a new skin should be placed on the site that is easy for 56K users to load so the forums do not loose traffic due to slowness.

I suggest something based on the default IPB skin. I actutaly could do that myself, change the IPB colors some.

The two current skins are nice but they can even be slow for me and I have DSL internet access so you might want to consider getting a skin that loads in less time.

6 Skins I like. The last one goes with a VC Theme I think.

Why would the color make it difficult?

Well I'm on 56k but this skin loads quite quickly for me, I don't mind if these new skins are added but i'd like you to keep the current ones and keep the drop down menu

Hey Chris, yes, its a lot of days later, but I made my forums a skin.

Maybe it could be used on the forums. It is pretty fast plus I can make it faster by removing the tile images.

Ah... pink just doesn't work for me, regardless of its VC theme.
I play City of Heroes. You should too.
Trust me. It rocks.

My FanFic, the Vercetti Gang, is awesome: Read it.

yeah its a good skin but pink wouldnt suit this forum, what would suit this forum is a san andreas themed skin, by that i mean wiht red colours and such
red and grey and white/silver would be good colours to use, if you do that and we decide to use it i'll give you lots of forum $$$$

Many people hate the pink. I am actutaly having a friend of mine (Darren@IBSkins.org) to make me a SA Skin so I will post it once he finishes it.

He is a great skinner and you can check out some of his work at IBSkins.
