First off, it seems that "Grey" is busted. Not that I care, I'm now using "beehive."

Second... anyone still have a copy of the photo of Mik with the frappacino bottle? Somehow I stumbled across the MikSkin™, and wanted to see his Starbucks-asswhoop mode again.

deit: can someone move this to Forum 13? I'm a tard

If the forum theme breaks, you can fix it by deleting all your pr0k cookies, clearing the cache, and restarting your browser.

Maybe he didn't know about this method.

what is "busted" about the "grey" skin? i'm using it right now and it looks fine to me.

however, the mikskin is phuqued. however, i've never used that one before, so i don't know if we are missing any files or if the skin was just a piss-poor design.

everything in the grey skin below the "cap" or "head row" or whatever that thing ^^^ is called was displayed in Times New Roman characters, and special formatting didn't exist (font resize or italics). Pictures displayed fine, and the frames were in place.

It was just odd and weird, but it's not an issue anymore now that I'm using the beehive thingy. Maybe I just wanted to complain, and I got that itch scratched.

It's a cookie/cache issue. It's happened to me several times.

I normally use the beehive skin, and just two days ago the formatting went away like you describe. No amount of closing the pr0kforums tab, or compulsively hitting F5 will fix it.

Here is what I do when it happens: (i'm using firefox)

1. close all pr0kforums tabs

2. tools > options > privacy > pulldown menu "Use custom settings for history" > show cookies > type "pr0k" in the search and delete all cookies it finds. > close > OK

3. tools > Clear Recent History > only check the "cache" box, uncheck the other boxes > Clear Now

4. Close browser

5. Run CCleaner in Cleaner mode-- the default options are fine, just make sure the "Internet Cache" box for your browser is checked. (I know you just cleared the cache, do it again with this anyway)

6. Run CCleaner in Registry mode. Delete everything it finds. Repeat - keep re-running the registry scan until it doesn't find anything anymore. (I don't think you actually need to do this step, but then i'm not sure which of these steps actually fixes the formatting, and its good system maintenance anyway)

7. Restart browser - your pr0kforums theme should work now.
