My name is irrelevant, but if you must, feel free to call me BD or acatalepsy. My life is an endless spiral of veiled truths, snark, and multiple noms de plume. I’m a college student going for my degrees in Computer Science, Web Design/Development, and English Language and Literature. I make Blogskins in my free time. — { i’ll be back to edit this soon. }
as of february twenty-third, twenty-fifteen, a total percentage of fifty-seven of my skins have been made SOTD (4 of 7) and all of my skins have been downloaded over 1,280 times. i’m terribly grateful for you all liking it and commenting/rating.

I really love your layouts, in general. I would say for this particular one, that I would recommend you table the layout, make everything 100%, and add a border in between the sidebar and the content area. The sidebar not being 100% makes the layout look a bit disconnected since the backgrounds of the content and the sidebar are white. If that makes sense.

Still I like this layout a lot.

@chiisanamelody; thank youuu. honestly, i do too. i'm kinda hoping i can get into touch with myles and see if he can least fix the image previews. i think the image previews being fixed would make things a lot easier for people. and thank you for the compliments. i do hope that it can be revived though. that would be absolutely amazing. *o*

@dorkisticc; thank youu. i'm trying desperately to revive this site. yeah, this template was quite a doozy for me, to be honest. the grid setup wouldn't work for like two hours and i when i finally got it, i danced all over my office. so i feel that pain.

I’m gonna give my opinion. I have to agree with some of the point @veteran made, but not all. Let me explain (and hopefully, the three star rating will make more sense), I do agree with what @veteran said about the fonts. In particular, the post title fonts. It doesn’t fit in with the rest of the layout whatsoever. I also agree with @veteran about the navigation, sort of. If you wanted to lower the opacity on the background colour of the navi only, I would suggest you find a hex-to-rgba generator like this one and input the background colour, lower the opacity, generate the colour, and then copy & paste the RGBA code. The problem a lot of skinners (and coders, in general) don’t realise is that lowering the opacity of an element, lowers the colour of everything in the element meaning any text colour, any background colour, anything that appears in that element will have their opacity lowered the same. To avoid that, use RGBA because the opacity bit in the RGBA (or the alpha) will lower only the opacity of the specific area you want it to. The navigation is fine because the colours are dark, the fact that you used the opacity attribute is what makes it fade.

Another problem, is the fixed banner at the top. It doesn’t really fit with the layout and it’s massively annoying when you scroll down and try to read the posts, but half of it is blocked because of the huge banner. The welcome banner at the lower left hand of the screen doesn’t belong either. If you wanted to include that, you should have made it smaller and made it to fit the layout’s colour scheme.

I do agree that the triangle is out of place, but it’s not annoying. It’s just too big. It would fit a lot better if it was smaller and fit the colour scheme as well. I can’t complain about the autoplay music because I have the same thing. At least you didn’t hide the player, so people have the option to stop it. It’s not worth complaining about if you can stop it (I mean the stop button is right there).

Everything else is pretty okay. The colour scheme is fine, the background is fine, everything else, but the things I pointed out.

This is just my opinion though, so...(shrugs)

@-엑소: Thank youuu. ♥♥
@shinku: Me too. Makes me sad that I couldn’t actually use this skin like I intended.
@cумэя: Yeaaah, I think that’s the case with most of skinners on the net, which I totally don’t fault you for at all. And I really do apologise if I sounded condescending or anything like that. It was completely not my intention.
@xx-rin: I’m glad it could find a home with you. *\(^o^)/*

@cумэя: I can’t code things messily, like I have huge OCD when it comes to coding and I just can’t. So I’m glad it comes out as clean.
I don’t want to come off rude, but there’s a misconception about the colouring of the layout, there are only three places you’ll find grey text: sidebar section, blog title, and textarea which all fit because the colour that is the background there leans more towards white than it does any colour, therefore rendering it pretty much neutral. The actual layout is not filled with pastel colours (the coor bit your screen has may or may not show it as a pastel brown, but it’s not). The browns used are close to earth toned/pastel browns, but they are, in fact not. They are either mid-toned browns or extremely light browns bordering on white. Also, to debunk that rule of thumb with something most people learn in any graphic design or web design class is that layouts are supposed to use fonts like Arial, Verdana, Times New Roman, Georgia, and Courier New because every computer has those fonts. The moment a computer doesn’t have the font you chose to use in your layout (unless you’ve made a PSD and are slicing it or an image based aspect of said layout), the font will automatically revert to whichever one of those fonts is closest to the font used or whatever is your default font for the browser. @font-face is actually frowned down upon using in CSS as it only works cross-browser when you are able to host the font on a server that belongs directly to the site/blog you’re using. Oh and the actual base size of fonts are not any smaller than 11px (they tend to be between 12px and 16px). So the ideal that using Arial font at 11px is terrible, is false especially when you take into consideration that most major website like Tumblr have Arial combining with another font to make their site look the way it does. And also the ideal that using grey tones to pastel colours is terrible, is also incredibly false. Grey tones, blacks, and whites are neutral colours. Unless you are using a grey tone or a white tone that blends in with the pastel colour you’re using, the aesthetics aren’t compromised. Greys are just as neutral as blacks and whites that’s why people use them so frequently. In actuality, using a harsh tone with a pastel colour is what messes aesthetically with a layout.
@pelont69: Thank you,
