The site is at the default Classic Blue theme for all Guests but members have the choice to change their theme. Which one are you using?

Also, are the sizes fine for you? I can reduce the sizes of the background images if people request it.

How do we change Themes?

You go Dashboard > Customize Dashboard.
It's right near the top of the screen on the right side.

Anyway, I'm using the one with the girl with the chainsaw thing.

Using the one of Luffy (is one of the most neutrals).

Can you put a only black theme or something like that? because I get annoying with to many colours and draws in the background.

At the moment, you can only use the preset themes. I dunno if Rio is able to make it so that you can make your own theme. I can foresee things like theme contests in the future though.

Why not use the Orchestra of Machines one? That's pretty plain win terms of load colors. There's also the Urahara one which has a solid background behind the pages unlike most which has a certain opacity to it.

I thought in using Orchestra of Machine, because it was in a more netrual tone, but the fact of to many things showing up annoyis me.

I just want a more simple option (not the blue one, because its very confusing).

EDIT:

Also, the avatars need to be so small?

If you want to get rid of blocks and stuff, go to Cusotmize Dashbord, hit Blocks, and click on the stuff you want to disappear or remain.

You can also get rid of them directly in your Dashboard page. On the upper right of each section there's an edit icon. If you move your mouse over it, some other icons should appear including one that gets rid of the section.

If you want to move things around, you can also. A cross should appear - you should just drag and drop to where you want it.

Nope! I got them on the net.

I'd like to start a Skinning Contest soon where whoever wins can have their art as one of the choices to pick as a background.

Yeah, uh...Hiiiii. I know i'm probably speaking blasphemy here, but could you maybe get some...non-anime/manga related themes? Or at least give us the ability to upload our own? That'd be greeeeaaaaat.

Yeah, to tell you the truth... I really don't like any of the themes...

I'd be all over making my own, even if I had to do it from scratch

The default blue hurts my eyes for some reason. I'm using the bandaid girl.

Unfortunately, each user cannot make their own theme.

I've changed two themes - K-On Red is now Smexy Red and it's like Classic Blue except the background is a red color. Urahara has been changed out to a nice simple light green color.

Since Death Note Duo is not being used as well as the Elebits, I'm going to change those out later.

I like the idea of a skins contest! That'd be kinda cool to get people involved with the new forum.

But not yet! Still too many contest and Santas going! :)

Edit: forgot to say theme I was using. The machine one, cause it's pretty.

Cool, I'll wait till next year then when things die down. But if you want, you can start planning on the design.

@ Bya
Yup - Blue Chains all the way! :D

I'm using the Orchstra of Machines theme. It's pretty and the color scheme isn't distracting/bright. (I don't like it when I feel like the wallpaper's colors are burning holes into my retinas. D: )

Out of curiosity, what size are the wallpapers that you used for the themes? I think it would be very helpful for people to know if they want to start planning things out or start working on their entries.

Current theme sizes are 1920x1200 but the smallest size I recommend the image to be is 1400x800.

Is that inches or pixels?

Rio

Pixels. That'd be crazy if it were in inches! D:

Sorry, that was probably a stupid question :(

Rio

Ah, no way! No question is ever stupid. Sometimes I ask questions like that myself just to make sure. It's always bad to make assumptions, from my experience.

Is it possible to get a Gurren Lagann Theme? I sure would like it, and it seems to be a popular anime with the MT'ers.

Rio

Depends if I can find a high quality Gurren Lagann image. Got any places where I can get a high quality image?

Don't take out elebits! I'm using it and its awesome. It feels the most artsy to me plus I'm a sucker for fantasy jungle landscapes.

lol Okay. C:

....At least for now until the skinning contest begins next month.
