The first new skin option we are working on will be one for the Chicago Bears. Some of you have requested the old CBMB layout. Does anyone remember what that looks like or have any screenshots from it?

If you want, I can try to get it close to that. Otherwise it will just be team themed with colors. Any ideas on how you guys want them? Throw it in here.

I don't have a screenshot from the original CBMB, but the CBMB skin that VB CCS had looked like this (from a thread in announcements forum when Vbulletin was acting screwy).

I was good with the old CBMB skin. For me personally, it more about the color scheme than any specific layout stuff or graphics.

I'm all about that dark navy blue. Though the black Bears logo in the background was cool.

This is the skin I used. One poster, cant recall who it was, would regularly change his font color from the default white to black to make it near invisible unless you highlighted it to cut and paste. Cheeky bastard.

How long has it been since CBMB died? 8 years now? All I remember is the Navy Blue borders.
A true CBMB skin should be pretty easy.

Navy blue background, Orange banners and then make everything else look like 2006.

(Basically like a LiveJournal page)

Yep. I actually like the color scheme as is. I worry when they try to Bearify it with orange and blue, it will be hard to read, and look like a .jsp page from 2005.

Yes, the Bears skin would be OPTIONAL. You would be able to choose from the current skin or the Bears skin.

I'll send over some ideas to the designer for a Bears skin.

Noted:

- CBMB skin...sucked.
- Old CCS bears skin was better.
- More navy.

thanks for the effort on this

I know for some the appearance of the site doesn't really matter, but for a lot of other people having a dark theme is a big deal and if its bears colors, then all the better.

What if I told you we could possibly have a dark theme and a Bears theme..
