The Mod team has hit you with a lot of information recently, and we’re about to pile on more, for which we apologize but hey, it’s all good stuff.
Those of you who were active last year might recall that we retired a number of skins, including some that dated back to EF’s launch in 2006. These skins were replaced with a selection of new skins created with the support of some of the amazing artists that comprise our current membership.
While perfectly functional, there were a few glitches in the new skins resulting from inherited issues from older programming and the shift in border size for desktop users. Lucky for us, these kinks were ironed out in mid-2023 by cawthraven with the creation of the Drabblemania skin. One of our goals was to implement the improvements to all the 2022-era skins before the end of the year. As of today, that has been done. Members who are using a skin developed in 2022 might notice small changes upon flushing your cache, but the result should be an improved user experience.
We have likewise added five new skins: two by cd85, and three by bewildered, one of which showcases the logo we had commissioned earlier this year, and another that uses the same main color scheme of the retired skin not without a fight* by popular request. These banners have also been added to the rotating banner for our 1,000 authors celebration.
The new skins are:
- a little romance (artwork by cd85)
- celestial (artwork by bewildered)
- date night (artwork by cd85)
- elysian (artwork by bewildered)
- his hero (artwork by bewildered)*
Thank you to our artists who keep Elysian Fields beautiful with your artwork. We are so lucky to have such amazing talent within our community.
