    Hey there's no other Suitable place for this (YET) So hope you don't mind if I put it here ^_^


    I would like to say Congrats for the layout! (not sure who's done it)
    Really like the colours and how 'open' it feels now.

    Um yeah... That's all for now ^_^

    It's kinda almost the same format as the Cosplay Forums. But the Administration panel doesn't appear at the bottom which is going to make things for difficult for Creature and I to change things..

    But when the Forum is done ask Creature what he thinks of the format style and if he likes it we will glady go and find the format again and make this the actual default format- style, or something close or just as open.

    Thanks for the suggestion Mandie ! cat

    Err. Dunno if this is an issue with the theme or not, but when I type in the post box, I can't actually see the text I type - it's as white as the background! Other than that, love it. Lemming, we can just bookmark the link to the admin CP. I already have~

    Okay Creature- If possible for the main format will it be okay to add a picture of Squall of Rinoa and maybe Squall in darkness and Rinoa showing the light with a feather or something..

    If- If it is possible..

    If you can't then will be happy with what is already there..

    Also when should make the Forum open so when people searching on Google/ Yahoo can find the site & Join ?

    & Rep is going to be changed to Karma points

    That is probably a little beyond my meager photoshop skills lemming. There are plenty of others that could do it easy as though.

    EditEdit: Creature, in spoilers the text comes up white so you can't read it. Is that meant to happen?

    hey just a general comment about the colours being used on the forums:
    There is a lot of grey writing on black background and it can be hard to read at times.

    The same can be said of any color scheme though. Have you ever tried to read a wall of black on white? Ouch! Proper spacing in posts is far more important to readability than tweaks to the collour scheme.
