I love this so so so much! Great job, Slasher!

 

I see no bugs as of now, but I'll let you know if I do.

The usernames aren't centered above the user icon.

 

Otherwise it's very surprising how much you were able to do. C:

I've tried centering them before, but because they're within the "header" for posts rather than in the "author mini-profile", they don't center like they're supposed to. But since I have a better grasp of how the skin is set up, I could probably try again successfully after moving some coding around.

two years what no

 

Also nice work! I don't think it's really fair to tell users to set up Stylish in order to get the font back to the way it was supposed to be though. :0

It's really been about a year and four months since the first release of the Skyward skin, but we've gone without any real nice skin for so long that it feels like it's been forever (at least to me).

Yeah and to think when you guys were originally testing the Skyward Skin the Marty Mole rank was one of the few with the surprise access to it and that MageLeif did not notice that originally til I brought it up in a different topic about new skin suggestions or whatever the topic was called and now it is here lol.

Thanks! and the font was always as it is though, so there's nothing to set it "back to" anyways. I tried matching everything up as close as I could according to screenshots. Plus I remember in the past, firefox overwrote the font here, and when I took a screenshot, someone noticed and asked why the font was different and that it was supposed to be 'Palatino Linotype', which is what it was and still is now.

So I just found this. You'll have to give it a few minutes to load.

 

http://web.archive.o...dopipeline.net/

 

Obviously some of it is broken, but it could be useful? The footer and search/userCP areas are a bit different, and the green font color seems a bit lighter.

 

Also proof that the font is the same now as it was before.

 

This other theme seems pretty intact as well.

And if you're just curious about looking at other stuff from the past:

Wow, I forgot about all that archived stuff. and yay for proof of the font. I just wish there was a way to see the forum index with that old version of the skin, so I could find out what font the titles used (like the Shoutbox and board/category headers), since I believe those were the only things to use a different font. It was similar to the font used in place now, just that it used mini-caps in place of lower case letters.

Edit: I think I managed to find it now. So now to test things out.

 

The user cp and footer were the only things I didn't find old screenshots of though, so it helps with that quite a bit. I kinda like the user cp area better now than compared to that though. But maybe I could align the search bar better with it and get rid of the green background on the magnifying glass icon (not sure what to do about the advanced search icon though).

As for the footer, I'll work on fixing that as well. I knew it seemed off anyways, but wasn't sure with what until now. So thanks for finding that!

Glad you could see it's resurrection. :p
Hope you don't mind the changes I've made from the original. Plus there might be some minor bugs here and there gone unnoticed. But it's still beautiful. <3
