Default Customizable Visitor Pages and New Skins

Well, I'll start off by saying that the first is really not needed, but, I don't see why we couldn't have it. It allows users to express themselves in using colors and fonts that aren't set by selecting a certain skin. It makes the forum seem more, I don't know, alive?

Secondly, I hope that I am not the only one that forces themselves to use Blue Commune and/or Vbulletin for the sole purpose of seeing when you have Visitor Messages, and stuff of that like. I suggest that we stock the forum with new skins that support the new VBulletin. That way, people (me) will not have to force themselves to look at bland skins in order to get alerts when you have VMs and such. Once again this isn't mandatory either, and it isn't going to kill me, it is just a suggestion~

Discuss or whatever.

I think this suggestion is stupid **** and I don't read my VMs anyway

This isn't myspace so that customizable thing is iffy. A change from Firaun might be warranted, however and none of the current skins please my refined eye palate.

I'm used to BlueCommune, have used it for three years, and tried to change. I don't like the other ones really. White and blue, IMO, are the colors of pe2k.

I 95% agree. The first fifty percent is the skins topic. There are several skins that I think are absolutely awesome, and before VMs came around I could actually switch between them on a regular basis to keep it fresh. Now I'm just limited to the two that allow VMs. Which sucks.

As for customizable Profiles, that's less of a 100%. It would be awesome, of course, if vBulletin supports it, just like it's awesome on Youtube, but as AS said it's not really necessary. So I pitch in 45% concurrence there. Would be lovely, but not needed.

Total: 95%

I don't see why this change shouldn't happen. It would be nice to have some more compatible skins, if it isn't to much work. I use Blue Commune, but I think, given some time, I could get used to and appreciate another one also. I think AS makes some good points, at the very least. :P

More customizability is always good :o

An other forum I used to go to had this capability and I'm pretty sure it was vbulletin as well. I don't see why we couldn't do this if some people wanted it badly enough.

I already talked to Ryan about this a while ago...



He said the reason he wanted all the profiles to be the same is because he thought someone might abuse this and select uber bright colours for their profile.. He didn't want that.. As much as I disagree with him, then I must respect his opinion...



Anyway.. Ryan already said that he was working on making it so that all the skins notify you of VM's...

Still it if you want to use a different style.. Then you can always just hit user cp button ones a day or more often...

Definitely. However, this could be a little complicated, so if it's impossible... how about letting us see others' profiles in the skin that they last used? Now that'd be nice. ;D Still too complicated? ... Never mind. :X

And you forgot to mention having the functions for existing skins as well. After all, it's not fair to the old skins, is it?

In short though... WE NEED IT.

True, but more compatibility is also always complicated.

And what's wrong with "uber bright colours" again? :O

Bright cyan text on a bright yellow background. I know AS too well.

I don't like the idea of customisable profiles, for the reasons Ryan's said.

But I do think compatible skins would be useful, although I've used BlueCommune since I came to Pe2k, so I wouldn't be changing anytime soon.

Or we can have a default uncustomis/zed version to go along with it... I guess. :X

If not, is it possible to view someone's profile in the last skin that person used?

This. I NEVER use custom skins. If the forum doesn't have BlueCommune I get withdrawal symptoms and just select vBulletin. However I think being able to have playlists and/or a Youtube video THAT DOESN'T PLAY AUTOMATICALLY X_x on your profile is a nice idea, and also uploading graphics as a profile skin, along with customisable font colours and background colours and such. I mean, if you don't want it, you don't have to change your profile, right? You don't HAVE to use it. If you want to, it's there, and it's fair on both sides.

If anyone uses cyan and yellow then they seriously have something wrong with them and/or they're trying and failing to be LOLFUNNY. Why would you even inflict that dreadful colour combination upon yourself? XD

Because the combination looks perfectly fine to them? Well, I mean, it's OK to me (not that I ever bother to change my profile page), so it might be OK to them too. :X
