112w 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.

Yea, that bugs me also hehe.. it's the default graphic image. We could remove it, but then the bubbles will just be round and not look like quotes.
I thought about making one of these (http://www.ps3news.com/forums/images/misc/quote-left.png) for each Style, but that could get annoying real fast... perhaps what we can do is see how many Style variants we have in a few weeks time, then run a Poll on them to see which people prefer most (require all users to vote) and then the 10 or 20 most popular Styles in the end we can make them for.
The site has certainly changed a lot in the last couple of months. There is only one minor "error" that I encountered, as you can see in the picture below the circled area of the quote is still the default color compared to the rest of it. Other than that, everything seems and looks perfectly fine.
Hi GrandpaHomer, if you check the attached pic I made 3 black boxes in it... just fill them in (in white, so I can read it) with the hexcode colors you'd like for those three areas and the rest I can probably wing to make it how you want easy enough... and +Rep!
Nice one - like Silver and Blues - but I'd like most to have the same as Blues but in Greens - would you do that boss or do you want me to play with paint as well? Same shades / dark levels just in green will do
