Just saw this skin and it looks exactly like Evanescences other skins. Why remove the look and feel of the 3.2 software, almost looks the same as the 3.1 skins ... I have to admit that I like the 3.2 "clean" version of the software the IBSkins just seem to look the same as previous versions of the forum software.

I would have changed the aesthetic style because with the new skins, it's definitely lacking. Don't get me wrong, it's a gorgeous skin, but it lacks the feel of the 3.2 software. I just think that the skin designs should change with each new release of the forum software because there is no change between the 3.1 skins and the 3.2 skins, they just look the same.

I don't know how else to say it, but your 3.2 skins just feel too sterile ... too clean and the skin is the same or identical to the designs of 3.1, 3.0 and so forth.

:lol: sorry no offence but are you wearing beer goggles ? of course everyone has entirely different tastes and for me personally I detest the 3.2 skin "look", who wants to have half there widescreen filled by a blank coloured background because it sure ain't me. I'm glad to see sherri is using what is clearly a mix of the best from both versions which has resulted in a top notch skin, nice work sherri :D

I agree. Sherri does excellent work and this skin is a clear example of that. To me, 3.2 is a bit bland and if it weren't for Sherri's skins I'd be very hesitant to upgrade. She does some of the nicest work I've seen in quite a while...

I'm not saying that her skin is bad, I really like it. However, I'm equating it in the context of someone walking into 100 different rooms and while they are all decorated a different way or have a different color, they all basically the same. I would like to see some variation between the different versions of each forum in correlation with her skins. It's just that I see the same design with 3.0, 3.1, 3.2 that's prominent with all of her skins.

You would expect to see some variation with the newer version of the forum software.

When I look at this skin, it feels as if I'm looking at IPB 3.1. That's all I'm saying. The 3.2 skin looks like IPB 3.1.

Yes, her skins have a certain thumbprint and style to them. Like anything else you either like it or you don't. I personally do. I don't like how 3.2 looks to be honest with you. In my opinion it is very bland and boring and way too basic looking. At least with a good looking skin this jazzes it up a little. I like the 3.1 look as do many others. There are lots of skinners out there. Just find the style you want and like and go with them. However, in my opinion there is no reason to go onto Sherri's thread that is promoting her skin and take shots at her work. It's counterproductive...

Volstate, exactly. I would just like to see more variation instead of seeing the same basic skin design for every version of IPB. While I use mostly free skins on my forums, I've been considering purchasing premium skins but I would like to see more skins that are similar to the default design of IPB. I don't know, while Evanescence has put out some truly beautiful skins, I'd like to see some skins where the image icons aren't so large on the board index and where we could see a design similar to that of the defailt IPB 3.2 skin.

I'm not saying exactly like the design but something close to that aesthetic value.

If it sounded like I was posting a bitter critique, I wasn't. I was just saying that maybe produce some skins with a more aesthetic value and which the designs of each different skin don't all look similar. I had noticed that this skin, IP.Tech, IP.Pro and various other skins look similar in design. It's something I've noticed with a lot of designers and developers that a design they create tends to carry on over to all of their skins, or most of them.

I think the only ones that have had some different alternating designs are Skinbox and Forum Flux ...

issue I see, even on your test board, is hover over member name and the card has sizing issues.


was going to report there but no idea wheere to do it, the tracker had php error.




She has a temporary tracker set up and this issue has already been reported and acknowledged. She said she'd have a fix very soon..

Just signed up on her website.. Paid for the skin through PayPal, on return to her site I got a "transaction error". I'm in the process of waiting on a reply from a ticket I had to open on her website in the hope I receive the skin I paid for.

Conclusion: If you want this skin save yourself the bother and spend the extra $5 and get it from the IPS Marketplace instead of buying it directly from her site.
