    How do I make a theme for this? is there anywhere I can find the specifics, or do I just make a background image and a header of any size?

  2. tormaid says:

    Looks quite a bit less ugly. Yay Horizon.

  3. Mushyrulez says:

    It makes Horizon look better than it should :|


  4. Anon says:

    And TK remains the best one.

  5. Tysonblast says:

    i don’t like this one bit
    i-i’ll just use it because it’s there, that’s all!

    Slight eyestrain, white text over white background (reply links, “Older entries” link, etc; at least they have a text shadow), random lines in the background image…

    Overall, not your worst theme but still nowhere near as good as Tenshi or TK.

    I might consider making a S;G theme, but I’ll probably be too lazy to bother. If I do, though, should I just send the CSS/images in a .zip to the usual email address or what?

  8. Selecao says:

    Cool, but I’ll stick with Denpa, thx.

  9. Nope says:

    Huge improvement. Between kicking Daiz out and this, I respect you guys again.

  10. Marche says:

    This is a really great theme. I’m glad I can finally use a new one.

  11. Teri says:

    >Not having Nenji in the foreground.

    Otherwise, this looks pretty good!

  12. Silly says:

    I apologize, but your theme fails, and here is why:

    I can see Gacchan and Margot, and they aren’t holding hands/huggling/snuggling/making out.

    Massive fail, guys, massive fail. I am disappointed.

  13. JustSteven says:

    Thanks love the new theme. Its pretty sick

  14. articuzwolf says:

    too bright…

  15. blankaex says:

    New theme is too bright. Doesn’t feel like Commie. Is there a specific size in Px for the Background and Header? Also, how many and which colours do I pick? Yes, I know how to provide in Hex.

    • Laughmaster says:

      Your questions are so idiotic that there’s almost no point in answering them, but I’m going to do so just so I can point out how stupid they are in the process.

      If you take a look at all the other themes, you’ll notice a trend in the header size that they’re all 980px wide and ~240-260px tall. It’s pretty obvious that you should stick to these sizes. (Header must be 980px wide but height is variable within a reasonable range)

      For the background, it is again pretty obvious that you should just look at what the other themes use. They’re all high-resolution pictures, with the newer ones being in widescreen. Think wallpapers.

      And for the colors, here’s what you’re going to need to do (assuming you don’t want it to look like crap):

      1) Download some of the content pages (i.e. the main page, a post page, and some other page like recruitment)

      2) Download everything else needed for that page (all the stylesheets and things of that nature) (Most browsers let you do this during the first step by selecting “save as web page, complete”)

      3) Go into the code of the web pages (.html files) and change the source of the first image in the body to the filepath or URL of your header image

      4) Find the theme-specific stylesheet. If you did the “save as web page, complete” thing, just look for style.css. If you didn’t, it should be pretty obvious (the filename is still style.css).

      5) Edit the line near the top that says “background: url(‘[URL]’)” so it contains the URL for your background

      6) Edit the colors for all page elements, text, links, headers, borders, EVERYTHING, until you’re confident that it looks nice and everything is readable.

      After that, you’re done. Email your edited stylesheet and header/body images to RHExcelion. He doesn’t like his email address to be picked up by webcrawlers, so just look for the image he uses to give people his address. It’s on the recruitment page, for one.

      I’d like to point out that it took me MUCH longer to type this post out than it took me to actually figure out the answers to your questions (And it probably took longer for you to read it, too). Common sense is a valuable tool.

    • RHExcelion says:

      Not really, banner width is 980. Background is centered unless otherwise specified, so something close to 1920×1200 that blends in well with a background color for larger monitors. You can pick any colors you want, just tell us where it goes (take a screenshot and draw arrows if you have to).

  16. shuff says:

    Great theme for an AWESOME animu ヽ(´∇`)ノ

  17. dust says:

    If you want Fate Zero or Shana 3 theme, then I could make it for you. Where, how, and when should I give it for you?

  18. daniel says:

    awesome, though a little on the bright side.

  19. cave john says:

    Mine heard u like white and u’ve put white on the white on the white so everyone can eye cancer while they eye cancer, but mine actualy does not dislike it.

  22. nINJAkECIL says:

    Anyway, If I wanna make a theme, what res would be the background?

  23. Saxon says:

    Love it!

  24. nINJAkECIL says:

    Here I made Iroha theme.
    But since I don’t even know how to make a style, I just made a background, banner and a screenshot of what it looks like ^o^.


  25. nINJAkECIL says:

    Do I get to make Nakochi mine if my theme were used? @_^

  26. Ara Ara says:

    I’ll stick with the Nura theme for now.

  27. IZEROII says:

    Finally!!!! this new theme is leaps and bounds better than what you had. and the horizon themed sub logo is a nice touch

  28. Shawn263241 says:

    Interesting change of pace.
    But those Japanese characters don’t really mean anything, do they? lol

  29. random says:

    not really related to this but, are you still doing guilty crown?

  30. nx6 says:

    /me goes back to Tenshi theme

    btw, I have a 1920×1200 monitor, too. Who the fuck uses their web browser full screen with a monitor like that? Biggest waste of space, ever.

    Shouldn’t it be 共産主義 for communism instead of 共産主義者 for communist? lol

  32. Son Goku ssj4 says:

    Oj my mother of hell… You really think this is for the best? I’m not designer at all but that recognise some goor or bad stuff. And this is bad. THIS IS BAD you know.

    If nothing, change this:
    Opacity -> less! The black text isn’t quite readable on the blue background. Or add some “white” background to the tabs with text…
    Reply -> the funny 20% opacity light blue glow CHANGE to 80% opacity black and the button will appear! Like a magic, my little pony.

    Please, … :) Or give us back your VERY GOOD design that was there before this cloudy-thingie appeared…

  33. misopsychia says:

    nice design. i like =) but still, haters have to do their part of the job in everything =.=

  34. Blarg says:

    This Pickle Skin is by FAR the best

  35. Fag It says:

    Looking forward to that S;G theme, because (SCIENCE)
