New Skin- Optimized for Speed! (JUOT Express)

I like this (aside from the green). But can I bring avatars back? I like avatars. Makes it easy to find certain users' posts.
It would defeat the purpose of "express" - I can't start cherry picking features here and there, there would be too many styles to support. I suggest using "Very Basic" with sigs turned off to approximate "Express" with avatars.

love the speed
the look is what I had with very basic and every thing shut off'

but both the green and dark are not good for those who visit during work
i liked the blue/gray version - make it look like microsoft product
doesnt draw attention to it at all

OK, good point... I added "JUOT Express Classic" with the classic vB default colors and a logo that doesn't stick out either.

actually i like usingg mobile on my laptop, if you could shutoff smilies on that
I will work on a global smiley shut off option that will work regardless of style.

I like both the express versions. Thanks! :thup2:
:beerchug:
 
Looks much better with logo removed.

--edit--

I also removed report thread buttons and rep buttons. jjj

Everyone is going to be running express now which makes all your add-ons only useful to yourself. jjj
The 'silent majority' has always used 'default' and I'm sure will continue to do so... In a few days I'll check the database and see how many are using what.

I realize using the Express styles you can't use the "off topic" post icon so if you have a thread you want to stay in OT put "[OT]" at the beginning of the thread title, like:
[OT] This is my thread title

Classic



Mainly, I want to get rid of the big icons at the top of the screen. I hate having to scroll down.

But I'm just being picky, really.
You are perfectly describing "Very Basic" it's like default but without the icons on top- have you tried it?

Love it. Using the Express Classic on my Dell Mini 10 and it's great.

Thanks Joe! :rockz:

A tweak I would consider for the express skins would be to have pictures not display and instead show a link. We can do this from the control panel of course. But I can see myself using express on one computer, perhaps at work and using a normal one at home. If no pictures show up it's less likely to get one in to trouble. :shrug:
