113w ago - This is just a quick PSA that we have now completed work integrating the PS3 News Quick Style Chooser into our Forums, Portal and 17 Subdomains hosted here which allows you to change the colors based on your preferences while browsing the site each day.
It can be found in the bottom left corner of each page here, and we will continue adding Styles to it frequently.
If anyone wishes to take a screenshot like HeyManHRU did HERE and fill in the colors you'd like to see we will do our best to add a Style under your UserName to pick from as time permits!
Finally, we are still offering $100 US for a new Site Logo... so far we have had a lot of GREAT design ideas in the ongoing thread with the criteria outlined below:
The logo should look decent with a transparent background, or able to be made that way upon being selected (most are).
The logo design should be unique so that when seen the first thing that comes to a viewer's mind is our site, not "Sony" or "PlayStation 3" so try to avoid using pics of the PS3 itself or accessories, font etc.
We prefer round, curvy fonts such as those attached HERE over square/boxy looking ones for the "PS3 News" name in the logo.
The logo should match the default site/forum colorscheme (white, black, grey, silver and our blue shades) to naturally blend/fit in.
The logo should be visually appealing/friendly horizontally at 150x90, vertically at 46x180 and as our default Forum avatar at 50x50. This is the biggest issue as the same exact logo likely won't work in all three placements just by rotating/resizing it so we need a basic logo design that is versatile enough to work for them all.
Post any design ideas / submissions in the ongoing PS3 News Logo thread HERE.

Ah ok now i understood better thx for that. To begin i was also a little bit afraid off getting into it (maybe it has some thing to do with getting older in years) but they have a very smart intelligence system which will display you the possibilities to write the code in form of drop down fields. I dono how i should tell it in english but if you have some time give a try and look into it. I'm sure you will like it
I am not familiar with what you mean on the WEB Basic, but what we had to do was port our old Portal / Subdomain code from Pligg to vB4... so it is now fully running on vBulletin 4 using custom templates to display all the pages.
I wish vBulletin 4 offered something integrated like that for Forum end-users, we would definitely use it and +Rep for the idea saviour07.
The reason we can't just import files made from there here is because our style has several hundred template and php mods done to it (most to integrate our Portal/Forum) so any of their Styles imported here would not function properly (they basically would be broken 8 ways to Sunday) on our site even though they may display the colors chosen.
As for the speech bubble not being completely uniform, I say leave it the way it is. You've already done so much to the site (all great improvements btw!) that something so small like that is negligible in comparison.
I like the idea of the Poll and in future (or leading upto the poll?) a self-service style-maker. You enter 3 or more hex colour codes relating to various parts or aspects of the page (i.e. Text, Title Bar, Navbar, etc) and create you're own style.
