Flames of Simplicity


A new style for you guys. Click here to switch.

Just something simplistic, that doesn't go to everyone's tastes but enjoy it, it's just a small project before I get around to making a more feature heavy style! <3

Note that the header is not yet clickable, Jake is gonna do that soon n__n

Sweet stuff, Gavin. I'm not a complete fan of the mono colour scheme (and the index Poké Balls are a little drab) and it could've done with a little bit of red accentuation, especially as you chose to wrap around Arcanine.

It's still good, though.

I like it! The simpler the better in my book. I love how spacious it is and how it looks like everything is placed on a giant scroll. If you get what I mean? xD Anyways nice work! I'll be using this for a while.

Not my favourite theme. A little TOO simple for my liking. But yeah, it's all right though, so I'll try this one for a while

This theme is the one on The Pokemon Board also, right?
Anyways, nice job Gavin. I like it.

Not my fav for comp, but this will be nice for iPhone, since I don't like the layout of the "simplistic" skin. It would also be nice if the background wasn't in .jpg...

Well, actually, it would look the same if it was in .png. People simply have negative views on .jpg because of pixel art which should be saved as .png to preserve hard edges, but normal images work fine saved as a high quality .jpg.

Yay! Now I can hold off on finishing up my beta style. n___n

The buttons are a little big, though, but I'll be using it none-the-less.

This theme is pretty good. I've been using it for quite some time now. It loads a lot faster and it's pretty easy to navigate than the others to be quite honest.

This style demonstrates why mixing serif and sans-serif fonts is not generally a good idea (unless it's only me getting that?). Also, the colour scheme lacks effective contrast; I'd try making the background grey darker so the yellow borders don't blend into it, failing that it might be better off white. Lastly, two small things, but along the top, Home, Blogs and Chat are underlined (I mean like this, not the yellow lines), but Oekaki is not; and the second matter, the quick reply button's text goes into the yellow bar on its right edge, rather unsightly. Sorry, but your style really does seem poorly thought out.

Watch out there, high quality JPEGs can end up with larger filesizes than PNGs, and yet still minor artifacting.
It's called portable network graphics for a reason. Just saying, though — usually JPEGs are smaller.

I quite like this style. The colors and design are easy on the eyes and pleasant, nothing to bright or dark. The only thing that seems a bit odd to me is the lack of contrast between the avatar/info area and the post itself, but I have begun to get used to it and I don't mind it as much as I first did.

I would've preferred the "Quote", "Multi-Quote", and "Quick Reply" a bit smaller, y'know?

This is really awesome, I'll use it for a week!

I'm liking how I'm not blinded by a set of bright colors on this style. The Soft colors and the type of background you use with the combination of Fonts and the golden borders give it a bit of a Royal-ish look. I think I maybe using this theme for a while =)

I like this theme alongside some other themes. What do you do if you wanted to make your own Pokecommuntity theme? I wouldn't mind doing one

I don't think you can make a theme for PC unless your part of the Staff (Unless I'm wrong)

No, some people have an emblem that says they helped with a theme and they aren't/never were staff.
Maybe they check out your graphics and recruit you to help with a skin if they think you're good enough?
Does it matter?

I don't really like this theme that much. The buttons are far too large and tacky, and I really would prefer a fixed-width version.
However, it's one of the better themes that have been put out as of late. I love the choice of art.

One wonders, though, if themes are simply being put out just to be put out. Most lately just feel empty as a whole.

I like this theme!

Particularly the grey patterned background. I like patterned backgrounds - this is quite alike the one in "Simplistic".

And it does look quite sophisticated, what with the fancy writing. Yes, it can be described as "Tacky", but who cares, provided it looks good?

I agree with this, the buttons are too large. But other than that, it's good~
