[Forums, we have them, is a monthly series where we look at all the going-ons in the Destructoid Forums.]
Welcome to the March edition of Forums, we have them. This month isn't going to be about things I've updated or additions to Forum (although there will be a bit) so much as it will be about pointing out some of the amazingly cool stuff the community have been up to over there. Things you might have missed if you haven't visited us, such as the header image.
So without further ado let's get this party started.
Let's get what changes I've done out of the way first. I made a change to the greentoid skin to bring it more in line with the standard look of the Forums. It now has a proper header with banner image along with all the links and tabs. It still retains the overall color scheme that people like about it. Along with that, I've removed the UltraGreentoid skin. That skin was obsolete and was not being used enough to compensate for the time and upkeep it took to maintain it. I also made a small adjustment to the layout of the main skin. Nothing major, just some spacing issues. I'm currently working on getting some kind of solution to color coding threads. It's proven useful to a lot of people but the code being used to do it wasn't robust enough. It's currently in its default state and I should be changing that as soon as I can find a solution that doesn't make the Forum look like a clown threw up all over it.
This has been a fairly thrilling Electronic Entertainment Expo in a lot of ways. Hard not to be when two out of the three major console competitors are showing off brand new hardware and all the new games which come along with that.
