  1. Welcome to the new boards! Details here!

How come the background is Empire if it is named "Jedi Counsil Forums"??

    I think it makes more sense if it was something related to Jedi?

    That's a good question. I do like it though. I hope they leave it!

    I dunno. I think it should be a collab of Star Trek pictures.

    Grimby set it up. I think the banner/style was originally called 'Mighty Empire' on the IGN boards.

    It fit the initial color scheme I developed for the new boards, so we went with it. A change couldn't hurt though.

    If we do change it, can we perhaps still keep the Mighty Empire theme as an option?
    I quite like it. :)

    That's not tremendously feasible with the new software because... well, feel free to ask about what happened when we broke the style management system on the Temp Boards. :p

    I quite like it, myself. Not much represents the grandeur of Star Wars as much as the Empire does.

    The b/g is fine aside from the godless, criminal absence of Yarael Poof.

    The boards were basically a non-functioning mess for 72 hours, and that was caused by overwhelming the board style controls. Then later the boards became a non-functioning mess for another long stretch of time because there were too many styles.

    Xenforo really hates style changes, is what I'm getting at here. :p

    The Xenforo site advises that you only have a minimum of styles. When you add or do a major update to a style Xenforo rebuilds all of the style templates. And if you have a lot that can lead to issues - see posts above about breaking the temp boards.

    JCC changed it more often than that... kinda miss that, to be honest. The mighty empire has gotten pretty old and stale.
