I was referring to the "sidebars" aka bookends. As far as I know, John never said that the "content blocks" on the front page would not be used for advertisements because that was pretty much part of the game plan from day one (it pays the bills).

When I got on yesterday I was like "what the ****?" Because everything was so white and I hated it compared to my usual blue/grey theme. But I tried out all the current new options and the 2013 greys (fluid) seems almost identical to what I'm used to so I'm happy with it. Could use some blue though.

It seems as though a lot of people are unhappy with the new themes.
I like them! I use the new pbnation greys theme and it looks great!

Personally, I don't see what all of the fuss is about. I happen to like the new layout, mostly because I really don't even notice that anything has changed. Now, if the dark layout that I use (PbNation Greys 2013 (Fluid)) gets taken away, then I'll be a little irritated, mostly because forums with white backgrounds hurt my eyes after a while.

What I said was that we wouldn't be accepting money from people who want to promote their BST threads. We never have.

Glad you like it now.

It doesn't have to be a quality mock up. Just something to get the idea across.

Haha, sorry, no PbNation bus anymore.

And you're living in fantasy land if you think you can drink me under the table, much less Simon and some of the other PbN mods...

On Topic: The fluid greys are working for me. i still miss the dark red but as long as 2/3 of my screen isnt useless sidebar, then i guess its ok.

Ed, the old owner of the site, still has it to the best of my knowledge. He listed it for sale at one point but I don't know if he sold it.

The only person who ever put any money into it was Ed. And he kept it. It was his after all. He chose to put "Play Paintball" on it real big because he wanted to raise some awareness.

I couldve sworn that ASM money/donations were used to fund part of the bus project. of course i cant find the thread about it because "pbnation bus" provides terrible results in google. I could be wrong though but i remember an uproar of pissed off people because their donation money was wasted.

You'd be wrong.

This...mods and members alike have gotten edgy and mean in the last few years.

The shades of grey could be a touch lighter, assuming this is what we will be relegated to.

What specifically? That's a pretty general comment. Do you mean the page background? The other colors are the same as the greys theme we've had forever, for the most part.

The text box where the posts are and the text box with the forum > sub-forum > thread


A color to go with it like the original blue would be killer, break the look up a little.

I much prefer the original "Greys" color scheme and layout, but I tend to hate change. I personally don't see a need to change anything, and the fixed width themes are annoying to me and don't seem better in any way except apparently easier to code for.

If this is what we're going to then so be it. I'll get used to the new 2013 Greys since it is pretty similar, but I'm not excited about it.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
