    The Geek District is my community. Recently converted to XenForo, and loving it.

    Let me know what you think :)

    My first impressions are you have a nice logo and it's a good use of colour (very minty). As with so many other forums I think changing the forum icons from the speech bubbles to something related to your subject would set it off nicely :)

    I'm not sure which skin is supposed to be the main skin? Or isn't there one? When I clicked on your link, I was shown the minecraft skin, and I thought oh no no NO! lol

    My only suggestion is to change out that orange category strip on the Flexile light skin.
    I also don't like those particular speech bubbles, but that's just a matter of preference. I think they're too large.
    You might like to use these, which Shelley made by request, for my forum. http://xenforo.com/community/threads/xenforo-styled-forum-status-icons.7744/page-3#post-208782

    Of perhaps you could find some computer icons? Or have someone make you some code-type icons.

    Other than those 2 things. I like the site, and LOVE your logo.

    Hmm, just tried that with inspect element and it looks ok, where's that tutorial on how to remove it just from the forums page again?
    Thanks :)
    The minecraft skin was for you because i linked it for you as a demo in that skin thread ;) Flexile Green is the default. I'll look into changing the orange.

    The logo does look very nice but the reflection at the bottom get's cut off sharply, It'll look much better if it gradually faded which can be done using masking and a gradient overlay.

    Don't worry Peggy, we all have our moments :)

    In the template "forum_list" remove the code between the
    Code:
    <xen:h1>
    tags at the top :)

    You must have clicked the link in the Minecraft Style thread somewhere or somehow, that skin has never been really default and I installed it to see how it looked :). Here is the default style.. http://thegeekdistrict.com/misc/style?style_id=6&redirect=/ :/

    Doesn't that remove the thread titles from thread pages too?

    I just clicked the link in your first post... I have never been to your site before.

    Can you try the forum status icons below Mikey? Just to see how they'll look on your site. I think with the touch of grey they will look better and offer up a temp solution until something better comes along.

    They will look great. It's what I have on my site.
    Mikey I made a "green" folder inside the Flexile/xenforo/widgets directory on my server, uploaded them there, they changed the path in the acp.
