We appreciate all that you are doing, Nils and I wish we - or someone - could help you more. I also sympathize with those who do have problems with the site and obviously would prefer something different to make it easier for them. What other than the picture issue is different with the other skin?
Maybe we should split this thread and move the discussion to the "Help Desk" section
It's a substantially different 'view' of the site, different layout, different graphics, the user avatars are on the left, etc. It also requires a totally different graphics set to be loaded on the back end. As a result the header and footer aren't 'branded' with the club logo, and all the little graphics that are needed to access the add-ons, bb scripts, and other customizations that have been done (and will be done in the future) all have to be duplicated or created anew. Then when a user using that skin says "Hey, how do I <foo>" and me or another user replies "Oh, you just click <bar> and then you'll see <foobar>", the user and everyone else reading it get confused because nobody thinks to mention that they are one of the 5 people out of 1500 that are using the other skin.
It's a nice idea, and if you ran a totally vanilla instance of the board software, then in theory these skins would be 'plug and play', but even then they are not - they still require tweaking. Remember the 2 months after the cutover and all the bugfixes I had to chase down? Multiply that 2x to maintain a separate skin.
I don't want to do it. I'm in the middle of scanning and PDFing 70+ old printed copies of the CBXPress, and then I want to get back to finishing the construction of the club website, and a few more little projects and by then I will have been working on the club web stuff for about a year straight.
Is everyone OK with my selection of my priorities and the use of my time?
