Hey egtrix,

i'm sorry, but i dont like that style. I waited a long time for a wow style, but i didnt find one.
The basics of your style are really good, but some grafics should be rewritten. I hope you will expand your style to a better one.

Bye

Curious, why the Thundercats logo for the forums, instead of something WoW related?

Thank you Robert for your opinion. As for this skin I made it a while ago and I had no intention to upgrade it but I upgraded it because of the people's requests and the number of downloads for this skin through vBulletin sites and forums. I received a lot of PMs asking for this release through the last year. Also keep in mind that it's a free skin but anyway if I have time to make it better in the future, I will certainly do.

Ulkesh thanks for your reply. I think there is a difference between:


and the Thunder Cats logo:


And it's not intended by anyway to make it even close to the Thunder cats logo.

egtrix, thanks for your reply. Don't misunderstand me; i like the style for the most part, and can definitely appreciate the hard work you put into it.

My mistake. It's been approximately 15 years or more since I saw an episode of Thundercats, so a misrecognition of the logo is not unreasonable, and several of the folks I asked agreed that it was close enough to the TC logo as to be recognized as such.

However, you didn't answer my question but focused on a tangent of it. As such, I'll rephrase: Why use an image that is not WoW related? Perhaps something that uses images that are actually related to the game, like:

forum_old:


forum_new:


forum_lock:


Not trying to be fractious, but attempting to help you improve the style.

No worries Ulkesh, I do understand and I know that you are seeking improvements for the skin
The idea is that when I did that skin I didn't have much knowledge about WoW and the style of graphics that is being used in it, so I passed by their official website and made the skin according to my first view to their website.

Now things are different as I have been playing WoW for over ayear now and I have a level 70 tankadin there.

And what made me a bit sad today is that the rating of the skin is dropping and I'm receiving negative feedbacks here which I find it very strange because the older version of the skin has more than 3000 downloads web wide on all vbulletin sites and I didn't have the intention to upgrade this skin until i recieved tons of PMs and emails asking for the upgrade. And here we go I did the upgrade using the same graphics and the same everything and then I recieve low skin rating, low installs and high downloads (for less than one day, 21 downloads is fine).

Such things depressed me for a while for the effort done but it's not your fault I do understand now that you want to make it look better
