    It should be very easy to make a "lite" skin for this forum, for faster loading etc
    simply by removing all the "extras" like bottomcatbg.gif,footertbg.gif, etc all the extra "decoration .gifs" to make a faster and lighter skin and simply show the Core VB.
    It could be nice to have as an option.
    yes?
    no?

    I'ver adblocked the horrible green things and the icons I don't like, so I have a lite skin, of sorts.

    That's mainly for aesthetics tho' as the board runs pretty quickly for me in any case.

    ok i just did it by inserting "chromo_kt8c/cats/" and "butbarbg.gif" into Adblock.
    just thought a light version could be optional (without the use of adblock)

    with internet speeds growing faster every day, is there any point? the difference will be marginal in any case.

    ya i never have any problems with load times either.

    but still a good idea for those who hate the fancy graphics, and those with 56k.

    freedom of "choice" that is all :bush.gif:
    i just thought it would be so super easy to do - copy any present skin you already have - name it Lite - delete contents of "cats" and any other .gif enhancements
    and
    Voila
    "Fst Lite"
    I thought the world loved to "diet"?

    the board is fast enough for me, it doesnt take 1 sec for me to jump over the forums(using FireFox), unless u got 56K connection that u want a lite skin.

    I think it's a good thing to do, occasionally I've accessed the board from 56k, as well as via cellphone, and it's been slow as feck.

    I'm all for a lite skin.

    good point but arnet today's cellphones supposed to be connected via broadband connections, thats what my mobiles says(nokia 9500 Communicator). i know it depends on line quality but where i live the HOTSPOTS r DSL.
    anyway am al the way with the idea, why Not!!!
