Hello everyone,

You may notice that we've change the forum around quite a bit today with our upgrade.

Please keep in mind we're working on a new skin, the current one isn't quite what we like.

Overall, there's a lot of new features: a new, better editor, and topic tags (which you can see on this topic!), as well as the ability to select your RuneScape avatar as your avatar are some of the main ones. Explore, and get to know the new forum!

Happy 'Scaping!
-The RuneSlayer Team

Oo, seems cool! :D

Only thing I am currently not a complete fan of is the current skin.

I'm not really either, lol. I'm using the default for now.

We'll design a skin ASAP that looks better, I'm sure. :P

It will take some time to get used to as all upgrades do. Hopefully we can find a skin which will be of everyone's liking.

I guess IPB decided to drastically change their default look xD Cause this seems quite different than before.

Yeah, they tend to do that all the time. This is the 3rd major skin change since IP.Board 3.0 :P

It's certainly something different. I think it looks better than the last. The skin not so much :P

I like this forum look better. The skin isn't the best though.

How can you like the look better but not the skin? The look is the skin, so what you're saying makes no sense to me :)

I was under the impression that the skin meant the color.

The skin is the entire layout of the forums. The color is the color.

We're using the default skin, recolored. Technically, it's the same skin, different colors, but yeah, whatever :)

When do you guys think you'll be able to get a new COLOR in? I personally like the whole forum upgrade, just the color seems a little dull with a near white background...

As for the technical details, I think there is a lot of room for improvement. While I like the back end features, it would be nice to see them in a better layout. The new buttons in the top right corner are amazing, although when you hover over them something should happen, like change colour or something. :)

Color would only take a few hours to design, I'm away for a week though, so it's up to everyone who's not away how long it takes :P
