I know many of you liked that option but it was so full of bugs that I decided to disable it. It took some manual database manipulations (mysql) to clean some stuff that was messed up by that feature.

You can print my avatar and burn it if it makes you feel any better...

A lightbulb just ignited over my head.

Set the hello kitty theme in the chamber. Eh?

That's good. It was a shame wasting the Rad Portal skin on Jerks.


I can't read.

Can you at least change the default to something other than winter? It is April.

Well we don't have a Spring skin, so until it's Summer this works for me.

Thanks Captain Obvious. It's becoming Winter in Australia, we don't have skin for every season, so for now it'll do.

Hmm, the SW forum is missing all images except the banner; don't know if you're working on that.

No it's not! It must be a local issue as it looks normal to me.

...also, please people; don't turn this into a General Complaints About Skins topic.

Okay, sorry.  :blush: I'll see if I can fix it with the normal fixes on this end.

I also saw a problem with the SW skin, so I recached it. Is it normal now?

I will really miss this feature. Hopefully it can be put back in if the bugs can be fixed sometime down the road.

Thanks for at least keeping it around until the Hello Kitty theme was gone.

Any theme but the current one would be great. I don't think snow is appropriate anymore lol.

I liked the Hello Kitty one sort of, in the way that it was just a kitty in the top left hand corner. Maybe just have the Blue brick with yellow stars in the top left hand corner instead?

I noticed that it was gone the other day but I thought it was just a glitch.  Oh well.  At least it survived till after the Hello Kitty take over. :laugh:

Just realized that it has gone. I used to have mine set as the summer skin before it disappeared. but now we have the winter one which I'm not too keen on Posted Image, I'd love to have the option to manually change them back.

P.S On a side note do you think it's time to change it to the summer skin?

Well I didn't even know we could change skins till now which is too late! Well I don't think it should be the summer one yet because winter is still in progress in many contries, yet again it is up to staff.

The new friends summer theme of the forum is not to my liking to put it mildly, how do I change it?
I have seen the settings somewhere but cant find it again, searching brings lots of posts on lego themes but nothing that helps with the forum theme :/

I'd rather not add-block the forum banner if I can avoid it.

You can't change it manually. It has been possible to do so in the past, but I believe it was disabled because it was causing technical issues when the admins wanted to change the forum theme (from the Spring to the Summer theme for example).

This new theme is certainly not for me either, I miss the old one already... and wish I could change it manually.

Oh well, gotta suck it up. Any idea how long it'll stay?
