  • Nearly Didnt Join

    But did... couldnt resist...

    Anyway to my point. I dont want to offend anyone but the skin of this forum is really off putting in my opinion... There are tons of free ones out there that could make this place look REALLY good.

    Just my thoughts

            No idea what a 'skin' is either in this context but hopefully my education will be completed soon.

              Its how the forum looks, the colours etc. You can get some really beautiful and fancy ones. I would post a link to some examples but I dont have enough posts yet...

                I, personally, am quite happy with the way things are. The colours and layout do not detract from some of the serious issues we discuss, also. when showing our projects a fancy background could be a disadvantage.
                We also make our own fun, don't need fancy 'skins' for that. but, hey, anyway. we are all entitled to our opinion. lol.

                  I didnt mean it like that! Content of forums means much more than the look of it. All I am saying that having a forum that doesnt look that good, it can potentially put of new members. Just talking from experience tis all, didnt mean to offend. The sites great

                    Yep and I think that sways people to join here rather than the skin. I'm a member of a few other forums (non craft) and have to admit the look of them never even occured to me - it was the fact they covered the area I was interested in, were busy and didn't contain loads of spammy posts that made me join

                      No offence taken. Its just that we have been around for quite some time and you are the first member to mention it. Made me think a bit but I still prefer it the way it is and that is only my opinion. You might have opened up an interesting line of discussion.

                          Of course it is! I'm just saying that it put me off a bit when I first saw it, I was searching all different craft forums, a not so pretty forum always makes me wonder if the admin put any effort into it.

                          It was just something I thought I would mention... Didnt mean to cause offense.

                              What do I like about this forum? It's friendly, helpful, educational, funny, inspiring, and exceedingly well moderated with hardly any spam getting through. The colour of the skin (ugh!) has never even crossed my mind. Those of us who've been on it a while feel we're in the company of friends.

                              Just a thought, would you go into someone's house for the first time and say they'd be better off with different wallpaper? (Not exactly the best way to Win Friends and Influence People I'd say ;-)
