I'm currently testing a new theme based on Halo. I'm going for Navy color, grays and dark blues, the red is from Halo's Red vs Blue. I have to make some exceptions so that we can see the works though because it's a darker than normal theme. Let me know what you think. This is just a test to get the wallpaper right. Though we can switch to this if you like.

Three versions to chose from this one, 2nd next repeats the wallpaper, and 3rd doesn't have the huge UNSC symbol at the bottom, the 3rd one can repeat too if you like.

BTW what about a theme thread?


EDIT:


Here are the previous themes

2014:


Christmas


NYD


2015:

This was the short run original. It was changed slightly on JCS's suggestion because it made us look as if we were a Halo only themed Clan:


This is the revised version, and below is an image of the complete wallpaper:

Now that the themes are coming faster, a theme thread sounds like a good idea. I like this Halo theme. Although, your right, it is a little dark, but still, I like it. You do a good job with the look of the site. Thanks again for all you do.

Here is the area we can discus the themes of the site. Falconer has been our site designer for several months now and has done a great job with keeping things looking good. Post you thoughts about the themes, likes, dislikes, and wants.

Thanks :) Do you want to change back to the other one? Like I said this version was a test.

I added our previous Themes to the first post, and everyone else should try and make some. Also if there is a theme you want can't make yourself, let me know and if I can I'll make it.
I also have another one ready.

I like the theme layout & colors, some of the others too busy to read the words. This is better. But this is a bit to game specific IMO. Someone visiting that is not a fan, may pass us by thinking we are specific.

Good job in any sense of the word though.

Very matching, the Blue and Cyan Texts. and the Banner of Nightfall. although, In my opinion I think having a Space Background is much better but that's just me. I'm quite excited the next time to edit the page.

I tried an amazing wallpaper with thousands of stars, but I kept getting an over the MB Limit message.

While I'm good at themes I'm not so good at sigs. How about we make this a Theme and sigs section that we all can partake in :) I'll try to make some to keep busy, but I don't know if they'll be any good.

Falconer, let's lighten up the hyper-link color a little bit. They're awfully dark and I'm having trouble reading them with this dark background. Thanks.

I really like the four game squares in the banner. It helps show the diversity of out interests. I hope we can continue them in the future.

I'm not in a hurry to change it. I love the look. Thanks again for all you do.

Thanks :) I'll change it sometime next month. The next one in Final Fantasy and Batman themed, but I'm currently making a muli-game one, that's taking a bit longer as I have to carefully edit the images while splicing stuff together.

Ok I'll try and change at the start of every month if you like. Unless it is a special occasion, Masiv wants a new one, or one of you guy's try one. Let me know whether you want it like this or not. I don't want to tread of our leaders toes after all.

I'm currently working on a multi-game one for next month, but this ones theme draws from the old Final Fantasy menus. I also figured you'd like more than one game again so I created a wallpaper with Noctis alongside Batman as we've all been playing Arkham city lately. The Batman model is from the upcoming Arkham Knight game.
Oh and I link to think that's us having a BBQ in the banner :)

If you don't like it let me know.

EDIT: I've updated the first post.

I like it, it really pops out at you, especially the sword, if that makes sense. Great job and thanks for the work!

I've finished our next month Multi-game theme. It's the toughest one I've made as I've created the wallpaper and banner custom for us. It's coming with themed sigs.
