    Default Mac skin is back!

    Back in 2012 when the hacking drama began by the glorious Gaza hacker “Foxy”, I decided to upgrade to vBulletin 4 as a way to secure the forum. vB4's security was arguably even worse than vB3, as we came to experience in the coming months.

    One of the drawbacks with upgrading to vB4, was that the old Mac OS X-style forum skin, made by Aqua Soft, had to fall out of use, because it was incompatible with vB4. As I explained in the old thread, Timan just stopped updating it for no reason. It took me a while and I should have done this much earlier, but now I've ported a loosely based version of Timan's Mac skin, to vB4:

    http://www.forumbiodiversity.com/?styleid=101

    It will be the default forum skin again, from now on.

    Hope you like it, I remember the old Mac skin was quite popular. I'm not entirely finished with this new port and I'll continue working on it until I'm satisfied, but this thread will be open for feedback.

    For those of you who can't remember the old skin, this is what it looked like:

This is also true for all Baltic countries

    The forum layout (which got destroyed) was bugging me for a long time. Finally I am proud to say this forum looks as polished as when I first joined.

It is no more than the (...) resort of minds (...) that, for them, a revival of Stalinism is preferable to the pain of a glimpse of self-it's the last sigh of the beast that Nietzsche identified as ressentiment."

    I may eventually bring the old skin back, depending on if I can update it for vB4. But personally I prefer this one better.

    Yeah, this one is much easier on the eyes than Geek Out, which is still available here for those of you who prefer it:

    http://www.forumbiodiversity.com/?styleid=90

    Geek Out looks cool, but its small text and almost same link/text colour is a pain in eyes.

    Yeah, ABF will walk out of this stronger than ever!

    I added a couple of screenshots in the first post, of the old forum layout, for nostalgia reasons.

    The skin makes me cringe a bit with its slight resemblance to Aprishitty, but it's presentable and efficient.

    What a shitty skin. Looks too much like apricity, hate the gray color (makes it look ancient), the font is too large (or is it my computer?). Overall, it's shitty.


    Looks alright on mobile though.

    After giving it enough time to form a real opinion, I must say that I like it! It makes it easier to read links imbedded in the text and it's also less dark and depressing, fitting for spring/summer time
