Prepare yourselves, the old skins are going bye bye!

Once IPB3 hits, we are gong to do a major overhaul of the site, we will spend time making a new theme for it but it will be the only choice once we have upgraded.

The old skins simply are too much work to maintain and Finity is a stop-gap (kinda like Windows ME) :p

Sounds good, can't wait! I was a little reluctant to use Finity at first, but I come to like anything over time and it has definitely grown on me.

I might take this as a challenge and an advertisement opportunity. You may force me to donate a few of my skins. =)

I use IP.Board Pro. I assume that IPB's default theme will be kept?

Yes, because thats the base we work from as well.

If I decide to do a few skins for Neowin (totally free) on the side of my main projects, would I be able to donate them? Would I also be able to get a copy of the main .PSD's for the logo if I so decide to do this upon the IPB3 release?

It scares me that you are comparing Finity to Windows ME :(

Well, I loved Finity and thought it was pretty well integrated with the new Neowin, but if you're saying you have something better soon, I'm totally looking forward into it !

Yes of course :) In all our years we've never really had a member wanting to do this, we've had to force our developers to work day and night to realise my vision (usually ending up in fierce arguments and compensation claims).

So yeah! :D

Lol. Well when the final version of IPB3 comes out and I have the chance to handle a couple of my customers first (who have already made well aware they're a priority), I'll see what I can do for Neowin. I'll make a darker version of Neowin, probably. It'll be pretty. ;)

Sometime before June. It's in Beta-4 now. Sadly, it's an entire re-write. So every single skin I have will have to be completely redone. I'm very sad. On the bright side, working with IPB3 is like working on a Ferrari where-as working on IPB2 is like working on a Dodge.

Great, thanks!

Is there any difference between this.IP.Board Pro and the new IP.Board Pro theme? The reasons why I use this theme are: simplicity and decent contrast between text/background.

Sure, I can PM him. Do you have an actual .PSD layered?

What is the main benefit for using 3.0 instead of 2.3? From the looks of 3.0 I'm not that impressed yet.
