Hey guys,

I am in charge of a clan on the Xbox and we are moving onto MMO's too, Darkfall will be our first hopefully.

I made this website around 3 months ago. And I am wondering, how did I do with the skins and stuff. Never used vBulletin before. And I was hoping some of you may be able to give me some tips that will improve it

Thank you!

While I like the white background because you can see text easily, it clashes with the dark black background which is a bit off-putting. I'd try and find a more mellow background for the text like a light gray or something?

Thank you for your suggestions. I will look into things I can do, I will also open a thread over there for my current users to have some input :D

This.

Go with a dark or light theme. Having both clashes and hurts the eyes.

Yeah, I got a suggestion when I was making it to make it lighter. I personally liked it with a black background. But now I think about it, I should make a gradient behind it, going from a nice green to a dark grey at the bottom of #333333 :D

So far my users do enjoy the Arcade I added in. http://www.rawrnation.net/arcade.php

but the downside is, everyone was joining to play the arcade games, and the forum was empty. So I made it so you have to post 10 times before you get in. And I delete anything I class as spam :D

Remove that guy holding a gun, it makes the website look cheezy, or find an image of a better quality.

I am working on it, thank you for pointing it out. Any suggestions. I am going to make a multi image logo.

I am however having problems applying a new background. It seems every time to apply one, it just goes white, even if the background colour is set to black (as example)

Hmm, here's an idea. How about you guys make some logos (500 x 200 px) and I can work on a BG that will work. And lets just see what people come out with, like a contest :D For a bit of fun!

Xbox MW2 player? Well, aint much challenge there with auto aim etc. Fucking game is like arcade version of a FPS anyways, its a joke.

Heh, my KDR in MW2 on the 360 is like 1.9 (over like 50 hours of gameplay), but whenever I played it felt like I was playing like shit. I felt totally noob. And I still got those kills somehow. The only games where I felt like I was actually playing well were the ones with a KDR of 10 or so. That's gotta say something about the game.

I like when Microsoft did a trial test of Xbox playing against PC players and the margin of victory was so overwhelming that they scrapped that idea.

FPS = PC

Period.

I turn my auto-aim and auto-centre off, and I do not have any psychical mods (aimbot, 10th ect), I only mod visual, like modded names :D

I play FPS's on both systems. I have MW on xbox and MW2 on PC. I find xbox much harder.

Autoaim or no, some guys are scarily accurate with those control pads.

You can't turn the auto-aim in MW2 on consoles off. The option you're most likely referring to is for the lock-on system in single player. I wanted to turn it off because it got me killed many times (my aim being dragged away because an enemy suddenly runs in front of me right when I try to snipe someone etc), but it's not possible.

Nope, does not work for MW2 multiplayer. The auto-aim is still there. There is absolutely no way to turn it off, ever. You probably just don't realize it's there. It is in fact hard to notice, and very easy to think you're just a good player. But subtle hints will betray the auto-aim. That, and when you play a non-autoaim PC game with a controller, the harsh reality of how shitty your skills are will finally reveal itself.

Please, before making any more judgements on my site, read this. As it gives the low down on what is wrong.

I have this same issue on my 360 and I miss so many fucking headshot from the autoaim snap-on....

Even though I classify myself as a PC gamer I still hold an up to date console for old times sakes, currently own an xbox 360 and have fps games on it and I must say they are quite fun, you can't expect the same precision or acrobatics performed with a mouse and keyboard but it remains enjoyable but if I am in the mood for serious gaming back on the pc I go :D

Getting back onto topic of Wickots forum you should try looking at some skins for php boards, a quick google search will give you a decent listing.
(keep in mind you may not find the perfect skin but something to work off and edit to your liking)

I have done so before, when it first started, to get away from the vBulletin basic skin. Then, I thought it is time to work on a secret skin. And then applied it to myself. It worked, and then I made it public.

I am back to work now I have slept. And the website should be back up and going in a couple of hours.

I hate the name so much I deleted my internet history and browser cache so I would never have to see it again. Made me feel like I was George Michaels saying 'Raaawr' and pawing the air for some man dick.

Great job on the updates. :ninja:

No. The site started 3 months ago, we became a clan back in CoD 2, but didn't really play much together, was just a group of friends until CoD 4. Now we have around 15 members from UK, USA, and Canada.
