I'd like to see a book-themed skin. Of course, there are not so many book and writing forums, but still. Might be fun to have around.

Alternatively, a plant / tree themed one.

What do you think? emoticonnc:

With book theme you mean a skin the looks like a book.. or different genre types? Like parchment for a fantasy board and so on?

Also do you mean like tree/earth type colors?

Both are good ideas. another thing with themes i was thinking was like for example instead of just a music looking board, making a board skin for a specific band.

I've been wanting to make a Harry Potter themed board, I was even going to make my own HP board.. but with the last book coming out next month i decided not to lol. Though i did add some theory forums about it at CP.

But yeah both good ideas. I could see the idea i had for the HP skin if i would just change a few things it would look good for a Fantasy type skin.

A fantasy type skin would also be nice. I tried to go that way with MA, but that's mostly in the banner, and a little in the parchment type color.

A plant scheme could have a leaf border, for example. Or vines. It doesn't have to be just green.

A book skin could work with the parchment color and have curled edges, for example. Or even books sitting in the background, or a background with handwriting ... Do you know "Writer's Block"? That has a typeface as background.

I haven't heard of 'writers block' well of course accept the real writers block lol. Good Idea with the Vines. I was going to do something like that for a board called 'Panthers Lare' but I think I quit doing it when i had started going back to school.

Was it you I was helping with a skin once that I was going to use parchment looking images as a background? I was helping someone do it can't remember who but think it was you.

Anyway good Ideas. I'll see what i can do, after I either figure out what I am going to do with this skin I am making, or stop making that skin lol. The thing is a mess right now lol. see here


ah just runsearched 'writers block' thats a nice looking board. Even though I am a fan of darker layouts I like the colors.

I just posted under Jinzy's post about tropical themes and said too I think alot of fun could be with a band themed board. I hadn't seen this post yet and thought I might possibly be laughed at~ glad to see we are both possibly nutz emoticon

Love the idea for plant themed one too I think alot would be drawn to that.

When I looked at the one you put a link into calling a mess instantly I thought RoboCop ~ not that I know anything at all about this stuff but it has a RoboCop feel to me and I can't really describe that but I feel that could really finish strong.

What kind of bands you got in mind?

And thanks about that skin lol. It's not even close to finished.. sort of had "Skinner's Block" right after I started it lol. But yeah I'll finish it.. but may look just a bit different, but use the same images/color tones

Easily the first Obvious 2 that come to mind for me are
Ac/Dc and Floyd

And I think with either of the 2 you could do something pretty funky and it could be used for anything.

The Floyd on in the right hands that had the right vision could be absolutely amazing & I like to think I could do an Ac/Dc that would do them justice~ you have to remember Rock an Roll Aint Noise Pollution emoticon

I think those two have some songs that could be played with a good stuff could come from it

Lol. One of my Good Online friends is obsessed with AC/DC. I made her a Skin.. though it was before i really understood much about CSS and such. so it's not the greatest. AC/DC Fanz is what it was called.

Pink Floyd would be cool to do too. I could think of 3 or 4 skins just by thinking of some of their Album Colors

I think you did a great job with it. Floyd could be totally amazing.
