Just wanted to say I'm loving the new look today, and it's cool that it's so extensive. It was fun to click around to find all the pictures that were changed.

At first I thought my browser had scrambled some of the images. tongue.gif

It was a very fun diversion for a certain day of the year

The new cover pictures for the FFT and CT guide sections in particular were very touching. Lavos has never looked so apocalyptically threatening.

OMFG ROFL THIS IS AWESOME biggrin.gif

Win.

I only have one suggestion: the thick hairs behind some boxes in the generic theme are not conducive to reading the text in the foreground. Apart from that, we're good to go!

We've certainly had some people complain about this, so we'll see if we can't make it a little bit better soon. Give us a few minutes.

I'm glad people enjoyed it. I drew all those MSPaints and had a blast doing it. Some of them were almost "traced" - I had the two images open and alt-tabbed between them. You can see that a lot in the Red XIII face, I thought. The rest of them - think most of the landing page images, like FFT's weird Ninja/Baseball duo - were just me being insane. I am also campaigning for this to be a selectable skin!

The meaner part was mine. I thought that as awesome as Neal's work was, it was too obviously our April Fool's joke. So once people had started to noticed, I slapped this over the top of the whole thing: http://blokkfont.com/

Normally I don't like gags that appear to "destroy" the site, but this one made me smile because it didn't actually do anything harmful except to the minds of the users. smile.gif

For those of you who missed it, for a few hours yesterday the site looked like this: http://i.imgur.com/Gk2U9aC.png

With regards to making Foolsglade a selectable skin, I think we can probably work that out!

I understood that the MSPaint headers and images (which were awesome, by the way) were an April Fools joke but when I saw the block text suddenly cover the site I thought you guys had some how messed the site up when trying to put the headers back or something.

So I was fooled!

I would just like to say I would probably change over from digi, which I've used for as long as I can remember, if this became its own skin.

I would also like to comment that the bars with the bars -- i.e. the "1 User(s) are readnig this topic (0 Guests and 0 Anonymous Users)" and "<< Next Oldest | Comments and Suggestions | Next Newest >>" bars, and others -- I never noticed that they weren't monochrome, until that crazy theme dropped.

You want it, you got it. Foolsglade is now a selectable skin on both the site ( http://www.cavesofnarshe.com/style.php ) and the forums ( http://www.cavesofnarshe.com/forums/ipb/in...=UserCP&CODE=06 ).

Have a fun.

Nice! Changed it straight away. I agree with Tiddles in the cast that the FFT picture is the best.

I had totally forgotten that I made a Foolsglade version of Father Christmog. It's like a gift from my past self.
