ZZ comes in many colors, a lot of which are rather dated. Not that that's bad! In fact, that's why I'm asking.
As you may have noticed quite a few design changes have been sprinkling around the forum. Many are for info pages and guides, of which are mainly only considered for the default theme. I'd like to, over the course of the year, finally get around to properly updating and incorporating our other ZZ Themes so that these changes are readable and enjoyable no matter what theme you're using.
The non-default themes have been neglected for several years at this point; save for quick image patches and haphazardly enlarging their widths to be more in-line with the default designs. What I hope plan to do is to revamp whatever other themes you guys are using, focusing in on the most loved/used of them first. This'll probably mean colors and images will be adjusted, but I'll keep to the general feel as much as possible and go through a voting process with you guys before retiring the old version.
Sound good? Let me know what themes you guys are using now or any that you wish were improved and based on popularity I'll start working down the list :3 It may take a while (as they do, haha) but I'd like to give it a try!
I'd love to hear any particular feedback about any of the themes or features/things you'd like to see incorporated anywhere too ^^
I have used the Hardcore one for years. I haven't noticed any major issues over the years besides the lighthouse symbol for evolving Magneton and Nosepass being really dark. I already knew what it was but for another member it might be hard to make out if they see it as it currently is. If I happen to come across anything else that appears off I will bring it it but to date that is the only thing I have noticed. I would love to see a few more themes that are darker like the hardcore skin as it is easier on my eyes to read things.
For sure! I too tend to like darker themes so will definitely keep that in mind. And that icon problem is exactly what I hope to try and fix with some theme adjustments so thanks for bringing that one up ^^
A side note, you guys can choose more than 1 answer in the poll :3 Feel free to select any and all that you like and/or wish you could use but for whatever reason there's just something that makes it unenjoyable.
Had to look through the skins to reacquaint myself with the possibilities... and figure out the name for the one I'm using.
I'm using the ZZskin2016, mostly because I'm used to the grey colours of the background. I don't like it too dark or too bright. I avoid pink and purple so the "Cute'n' Fluffy" and "Halloween" is out for me. "Characters" has potential but still feels a bit off. Originally I think I passed it up, because it was too narrow. Before "ZZskin2016" was made, I used "Zap". I like the images on that one But unless something breaks on the 2016 skin, I'll probably stick with that no matter what happens to the others. Creature of habit and all that
For the zzcharacter I'm using, it probably should be a bit wider since some codes people uses removes some of the text or tripple battles get messed up so it is hard for me to see, in which order they are standing
As a Halloween gift I have updated the relevant skin for everyone! It is marked as Halloween 2020 so the old version is still accessible. I'd like to get any feedback on it on what people like/dislike and if I've missed anything they really loved from the original version.
Color scheme is mainly the same, though more purple focused than red. I had to switch out the top banner as the original one was too small, but it does change the 'feel' of the theme to be less sinister.
