How about this one? Name? Suggestions on how to improve it?

Hmmm! ValenFud? Laughing

Try using the Buttons I uploaded earlier with it and make it a more complete theme, or would you prefer something different?

These buttons have a black background, and will thus not work well against the theme's white background.

PS: It will be great if you can include a "Quick Reply" button for future use.

Excellent idea! should that be a 100x25 gif or 71x18? I have added it to my boilerplate as 100x25 pending recommendations (there is a size consideration because of the number of letters and current text size, Quick Reply will be saved as quick_reply.gif).

Any others? Currently I am considering a mapped toolbar, a home and contact button, as well as additional user ranks and tags, it would be much more better to make more rather than less as it saves hassles later.

And of course you are right about the background also, the transparent backgrounds I tried so far did not look or work so good, but that is unacceptable to me so it will be done, count on it.

Sounds great! The quick_reply.gif button should be 100x25, you are spot on.

Heh - the name that came to me was "Beaujolais", I drank one in Paris with a similar color once.

I'll drink to that! it has a nice ring to it, and like FUDforum it just gets better with age (and the proper care and treatment), I withdraw "FUDintine" in favor of "Beaujolais".


Frank

here is your quick reply button, can you add it to the zip file or should I prepare another file?

Belay my last Frank

I forgot that my ability to edit is not time limited here, and I have already added the image to the zip file.

I also edited the display image to give credit for the software I used to create them, and added a read me file to the zip with some basic instructions for use.

You might want to check it for accuracy (save trouble later)

Here are your buttons for the Maroon theme, I did not do any rank or user tags, figured they could wait until we had a proper list and save effort and time, we are already getting ahead of ourselves (PPPPPPP)

These are really pretty simple text only, on a colored image, they could probably be done with paint. But I am thinking we should shoot for sets with embedded icons like the default Fudforum buttons, so if you happen to have a copy of those Icons handy I could try and embed them.
