Which Gray Wolf Skin/Style?

Which Wolf-Gray style or skin do you prefer?

Wolf-Gray-1 which lets the background picture show through slightly.

Wolf-Gray-1b which is just like the previous one in every way except the background does not show through the board stuff.

The plain, blue vBulletin default style which isn't all that creative in my opinion.

Right now Wolf-Gray-1 is the default style. I may change this, depending on the outcome of the poll.

The problem with the translucent one was that you couldn't see photos very well.

I voted 1b. I just associate Wolfs with the background and like it

?? When I voted and the results came up again there were no posts underneath - I had to click out and back again to be able to post ??

Same if you click "show results"
And results don't show up at all unless you click "show results"

Worked fine for me, Lily. Maybe you haven't had your morning coffee yet or something.

Anyway, most boards have "Other", the KT has "Purple Monkey Dishwasher" and we have "Sleeping Wolf Puppy". It's our "Other - Will Explain" choice.

If there was a way to make the pictures opaque on the transparent background then it'd have to be the first one.

I shall have to await to see whether you can do that or not before I vote.

I'm sorry, Mayhem. I don't think it's possible to have a photo or other image in the post not be transparent when the background in the post area is transparent.

The default style does not let me scroll smoothly. It jerks and is slow so every time I sign on I have to change to 1b. Please change to 1b!

I choose 1b, it's hard, to even read the texts and everything for me. Better, and I don't do the board's default.

I really like the translucent one, but tend to use the 1b as it is easier to read. Can the level of translucency be changed?

Short answer, "yes".

Kind of longer answer, yes, however, any less transparency and it'd be pointless because you wouldn't really be able to see the background much at all. I did "play" . . . . . . experiment with it before the board went live.

What I discovered that practically required me to include a non-transparent version was the opening of the drop-down menus in the nav-bar. (Community, Search, Quick Links.)

The opened very slowly. But when I made the non-transparent version, they opened up as quickly as they should. Wolf-Gray-1 will probably be the only slightly transparent style I do. All of the other ones won't have the transparent feature. (Well, if I get around to trying to do more.)

I like Wolf-Gray-1. I used to think it was a shame I couldn't see the pics in the background. I like this one and I am not having any trouble seeing posted photos over it.

I voted 1b

While it's nice to see the pic through the posts, it's gonna be somewhat of a problem with greyscale or pen and ink drawings if they are posted.

I don't really see these results changing much between now and when the poll is set to close, so I shall make Wolf-Gray-1b the default style. (As always you can always use the style selector at the lower left corner of the page to change to a different style if you wish.)
