It's seems very....clanish (if you understand?).

Blast is right, the theme at the moment loses the "UKCS" feel..would be good to have a few themes uploaded so a vote can be done to distinguish the best one.

Also it says posts are queued for moderating....do posts have to go through an approval network before being visible?

I love it, the amount of extra features that come with Phpbb3 are awesome both to the users and admins/moderators.

It will be set up so that only one group will need to have their posts approved by moderators. If users are spamming too much or post crap they'll be added to that list and won't be able to leave on their own accord.

like crakin said that skin was the default skin, they are changing it

Don't worry about the colours, I'm editing the theme to tone stuff down. Group colours were just a proof of concept to see if it was worth it.

Chaps, any of you gifted graphics people are welcome to edit/create a theme for phpBB3 - and keep these colours.

You have about 3 days - GO!

I think that will be fine when we change it on the live server. Its because the test server is set up with slightly different character sets.


As I said in my opening post, don't get hung up on the style/colours, as thats just a tuning option. We have plenty of time to mess with colours/layout.

Aha! Good idea.

TC - Sounds good, had some more fiddles and it's a definate step in the right direction for UKCS!

Change is good. After they have played about with the colours etc... I bet its gunna look really good.

Give it a couple of months or even weeks and it will just feel normal :D
