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.
Empire>a bunch of Jedi!
It fit the initial color scheme I developed for the new boards, so we went with it. A change couldn't hurt though.
And so we're moving again.
If we do change it, can we perhaps still keep the Mighty Empire theme as an option?
I quite like it.
I remember 3SA changed their theme every month or so.
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.
No way, dude. BSG!
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.
Yarael's still in there. Hover by Vader.
Oh, blessed be!!! So he is. Who could possibly want to rotate backgrounds and risk losing our greatest totem in the transition...
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.
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.
Why change the style when we could change the name Grand Moff Forums anyone?
JCC changed it more often than that... kinda miss that, to be honest. The mighty empire has gotten pretty old and stale.
Wasn't there a Rick Astley theme Christmas of '08?
Who are you?
No no someone mentioned that there was when I joined back in November. I mentioned that I lurked too for a period of time.
I remember. Since 2006, right? That's a long time.
Yeah I was too shy to join until I finally did.
