For a phpBB3 I think this design isn't very good. Drop shadows under the text...meh. User info on the right...meh. Way too much spacing between everything...meh. A maximum image posting size of 800x800...RETARDED.
If you want to use phpBB3 and don't want to use a GOOD skin, why not use the default? It works well and looks good. A LOT better than this one. And you can get some excellent custom skins in Frother colors on the phpBB3 forum. Oh well.

For Chrome there's also an addon thingy called Stylebot (link: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... pgmdaleoha )

Once you installed that, on the right side in the address bar there will be a little icon: the letters CSS in green (CSS stands for casscading style sheets, basically that's the stuff what tells websites how they're supposed to look etc.). Click on those three letters, they'll turn blue and you see something like this:

click 'EDIT CSS'

copy & paste the code below into the editor and check the box next to 'LIVE PREVIEW CHANGES', so you imediately know if the whole thing works. Click 'SAVE'.

Click the little x in the upper right corner of the stylebot editor.

Code: Select all

:lol:

I shouldn't have to fuck about doing anything to get this forum right. That's what admins are for.
Anyway, I had a look to see what better styles there were and after just five minutes of looking I came up with these:

Forum styles best suited to frothers:
https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/style/avalon/demo/
https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/style/etech/demo/
https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/styl ... 0%29/demo/

And a couple of others some might like:
https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/style/nexus/demo/
https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/styl ... roll/demo/

I must admit that I quite like the Nexus one, but one of the top three is probably better. They're all neatly laid out, easy to read, and have their avatars on the left where they should be :)

Now, unless the admins are complete fuckwits, all they have to do is go to the admin panel, download one of them and click on it to change the style. It might help if they release their hand from their cocks before doing so.

Nowt wrong with basements but personally I do prefer cellars- less sunlight & thicker walls... And what is this 'normal' you're talking about?

You can edit your posts now that we have an edit button. Here, have one of these-> " and one of these-> ] and put them where they belong.
Now go paint up some more chaos stuff or seizurebate yourself into oblivion while fondling a ripe and bloated goat carcass, should that be more according to your taste.

(Sorry, not in a silly mood today, can't think of anything even remotely funny to say. Time for some painkillers, me thinks.)
