Hey everyone! As you can see, there's a new default theme for GTAForums. The old theme was bland and lacking in contrast. Admittedly it was rushed, because when we launched it we had just completed the big upgrade and the old skin was no longer compatible. The new theme uses space more efficiently and is more pleasing to the eye.

You can of course switch back to the old skin using the "Change Theme" menu at the bottom.

Some other things:

1) Flags are back! Select your flag in My Control Panel > Profile Settings.

2) There are still plans to port over the GTANet 2k4 skin, but it won't happen until later this year. A new version of IPS is being released soon (v4.0) and IPS has indicated that old skins won't be compatible. If we did it now, we'd have to completely redo it again in a few months.

3) We've made some improvements to the mobile skin and will continue to do so. Please post any issues or suggestions that you have...

4) More themes (darker themes, lighter themes) will be added in future.

Is there any idea on when we'll be able to pop to the old theme? I FINALLY got used to it.

 

At least the flags are back.

Leave then. Everytime something changes people hate it immediatley. If you dont like it wait a couple of days to see if it grows on you. If not, then complain.

 

EDIT: Well that skin didn't last long :lol:

I like that it's similar to the old skin. Plus, no more GTA V dominating the entire top bar. Not crazy about the ad for solar roof panels on the first post of every topic, though.

Lmao Before trying to be an a-hole actually read the post first. "its not bad but not that good either", it means I dont dislike (or hate as you say) it but I dont like it that much either.

It surprised me when I refreshed the page, I was so used to the other one that for about 10 seconds, I was thinking "this new theme looks weird", but pretty soon I'll get used to this one, and probably will end up liking this one a lot better.

I'm loving the new theme, not a big fan of the banner, but atleast it's better than the full-on V one!

It's great. Old theme was too 'flashy' and quite confusing, this is simplistic, easily to distinguish content, and more pleasing to look at. I know it's hard to make a background look nice but not distracting, you definately nailed it. 

 

edit: I was the only one who liked the background? Give it back!  :(
