I wonder where the setting to disable the snow is located now. It no longer lags in browsers that I use, but...
Due to the number of reports we were getting about technical issues, we disabled the snow we were using before and switched to a simpler version. This one is only enabled on the Christmas 2005 skin, which should be the default skin on the forums currently. There's no on/off toggle with this one I'm afraid, so if you want snow off you'll have to manually switch skins. Hopefully this one won't cause people any issues.
I'm glad you removed the snow. I'm using Chrome and it's much easier now even with the Silver Ball redux skin. :]
It's working fine for me much like it did on day 1. Much better than yestarday. It's also a nice touch to 2005. I wish I could it make my defult skin year round.
Yeah, I'm not having any problems with the snow now.
Though that Bulbasaur does look a bit like a teletubby to me for some reason...
Yay no more snow and toggle button on the Misty Skin!
It's possible for you to change which skin the forums use in your user CP. The Christmas skin is currently set as the default skin, meaning that you see it if you haven't made a specific skin selection in your user CP.
So you guys are keeping these year round? sweet.
Maybe I'm not making myself clear. I want the skin year round. I have already set it as my skin default.
I think you may have misunderstood the terminology we're using then. When I'm talking about a default skin, I'm talking about the skin set in the admin panel for all users who haven't set their own preferred skin. When you set a skin as your preferred skin, it specifically overrides whatever the default skin is. When you're saying that you've set a "skin default" for yourself, that's what I mean by you setting a skin as your "preferred skin".
In any case, just like all our other holiday skins, the Christmas skin is available for people to set as their preferred skin all year round.
No more snow that follows the mouse? ;A; Darn, I loved that. The Christmas skin really hurts my eyes. OTL I'm sad.
Actually, the snow we put in still has the follow the mouse effect.
Just gotta say, love the site, wish I had discovered it sooner. Still having a tough time navigating; there's just too much to read!
