Now this isn't an official poll on which changes will be made. This is just for me to get a general idea of what people think about the subject of updating the skin. I know we've had this one for ages but I feel it's the CGS identity now and updating it wouldn't really help much at all. We'd have to get new icons and stuff made too, and for what? I don't really see the point when this one is neat-looking and pretty cool. Anywayz, vote away...

Didn't I always annoy you for being emo? lol


Anyway... I like the skin of this place. I'm like used to it I guess. And when I first came here I joined because it looked cool. I think the banner was just a picture of CM Punk at that time.

I'd actually not mind a change, but I still like the dark colours and I don't think it really turns away new members. The darker colours to me give it a more contemporary look to an otherwise bland light-coloured skin.

Its a deadlock right now, but with some people going either way its really a toss up. First off let me explain, we will have to upgrade to pbpbb3, which is something we've needed to do for a long ass time now (Alex), so we will see slight changes in the forum...however, they will all be good changes. Right now here are the front running templates.

^^ I like the second one. The X-Treme that is blue. If you are definetely going to change it I reccomend going with that.

Right now its possible...we do need to upgrade a bit. Culture or no culture 3 years of one skin is way to many...most forums upgrade yearly.

^ This site was dead for like 8 months though, remember. But most forums update yearly? Okay... that isn't really a reason to do something. That's like saying the Jonas Brothers are very popular Seth so you should download their music based purely on that. That's not a legitimate reason in my opinion. Most forums seem to die in under a month...

As for pbpbb3, don't say it like I haven't bothered or whatever because in fact I have known about the option of pbpbb3 since the WU days. I haven't gone ahead with it because doing that would mean we'd need a load of new icons as the current ones don't fit properly for that style. I previewed it this morning and was told by Brett/Kyle Deathlocke that it didn't look very good at all. I agreed.

If it's not broke then why fix it? This skin is hawt and the people that are asking for a new skin are veterans who've been around a while. So it's clearly not putting new members off.

After seeing the potential replacement skins in their tacky generic 'glory', would anyone who voted yes like to change their vote? ^_^

I'm saying no. Mainly because I'm use to this skin and I love the color scheme. I will say this...

We should go with this one if it's going through. It's the only one that looks good at all. I'd much rather stick with the current skin though.

No, because if we know who voted indifferent then we could ask them to choose one or the other, because now we're deadlocked.

Even though most people have said if we do change they have a new favorite Very Happy

If we're deadlocked then it's a draw and as they do in wrestling, the champion (in this case, the original skin) retains. As for CGS with that ghastly red skin... over my dead account! xD

As one of the peeps that voted indifferent, I'm changing my vote to no. The skin is fine as it is IMO and really doesn't need to be changed.
