    with the stable versions i hope we can see commercial forum skins which great customized skins. So far i only know forummonkey will do the release of it but who else will attempt to do this?

    Theres alot of talk that vb company has stopped making skins for vb4 but would they go over to ipb/xf?

    there are nice skins out already but not that it impress me as much as commercial skins usually do

    It will take some time. Two weeks at the most.

    More will come in a month or two's time. Pending the lawsuit and all.

    Forummonkeys has only stated he would...nothing more and no time frame. There are plenty of us commercial providers out there now. Perhaps you should do a little more searching ;)

    but i do wonder if other forum skinners are hesitant to go all out with xf due to the pending lawsuit

    I don't think so. I know some have been busy with custom work and other's have been preparing for the final version to be released. I think you'll start to see the selection expand rapidly soon. ;)

    Waiting to see Miko's work at http://themesinc.com . I always liked his vb skins aka vbstyles.com.

    http://xenstyles.com/ is a great site for custom high quality styles and I know with john being the ex-owner of vbskinworks his support, and style updates where and still are excellent.

    Themesinc - miko's site will be another great high quality style provider.

    Completevb who styled http://forums.wtf.com/ seems to be good judging by the work they did at wtf.com. I don't know what their support is like, or how quickly they update their styles but the work seems to be of high quality.

    I also know Dragonfly (kim) is working on styles and almost sure she provides a custom service. She's an ex ipb styler and in my books was the best ipb styler with stunning style releases. http://www.xenique.com/forums/index.php

    If your willing to pay these are the people who I would recommend. Most 3rd party sites not dedicated to styling usually do re-coloured jobs so quality is compromised, and updating them isn't their highest priority which is something you ought to bare in mind. If it's high quality styles your wanting the list above would be a good start. ;)

    im really hanging out for his 'default rewrite'. it looks to be the perfect skin as it will allow me to create recoloured children.

    Thanks for giving me a good idea. I'll try recoloring too.:D

    I am hoping Hanafi Jamil aka napy8gen at http://sultantheme.com will change his mind and start skinning for XenForo soon. He has by far the largest and the most affordable selection of commercial vBulletin skins.
