I was bored, so I made this. Maybe other people might like it. Feel free to steal styles or ideas from it. And just remove the font if you don't like it, I got addicted to it a while back.


non-!important version of the style without colors: http://pastebin.com/DVkakFTD
like a few colors need !important, but I can't remember which.

Links are not the right color for the Luna Theme :P they're bright red (ow.. my eyes..) instead of purple.

!!Littlepip 6766

Whoops, think we had broken that while cleaning up the code. (User styles stack on top of the site's currently selected theme's rules, and themes added to the site stack on top of the base Yotsuba B / style.css theme; rules shouldn't be duplicated from it.) It's been fixed now.

Pegasi's Clousdale theme has also been added in addition to Soarin' Wonder's Wonderbolts and Luna theme.

And they are amazing, thank you both for your work on them!

Just did a Pinkie Pie theme, since we were missing something for best pony.


/ef/ page gets borked, and opening a new pic shows the pink background with the Pinkie vector, something I'm also tagging as an unintended cool feature.

These two pics should be hosted locally in order to not kill my dropbox:

…though the whole update theme in stylish is a bit iffy. Sometimes it still installs the old version.

Anyway, only change is the pics being hosted somewhere else.

Little update to the Luna Theme.

Added a shadow so email names stand out a bit better on highlighted posts.

BigToughMcGruff!!42NuTQdLO3 6775

So I'm using the Luna theme, pretty nice. Except for the borders along post boxes on the bottom and right sides. Is there a way I can remove them for just me? 'Cause I think they look terrible and add a clutter of lines that make the style busy and distracting. The contrast between the blue of the post box and the blue of the background is more than enough to clearly distinguish the post boxes.


File: 1345160278712.png (62.29 KB, 360x411, chat6.png)

Ahh, yeah.. I think I was planning on changing that back when I was making it but guess I forgot, heh.

Do you use firefox? If so, download the Stylish add-on if you don't already have it and then write this New Style. If you have any problems just let me know (or send me an email).

*Note: this WILL effect all Themes and will need to be disabled when switching Themes if you do not want it to change anything else.

@-moz-document domain("mlpchan.net")


div.post.reply {

BigToughMcGruff!!42NuTQdLO3 6777

I use Chrome actually. Does that change anything?


File: 1345160494303.png (136.21 KB, 357x358, What (5).png)

Whoooooaa. Just noticed the Hide feature on the Wonderbolt theme doesn't have the right colors.. can someone look into that? Also, could the Luna theme be updated with the removal of the borders?

Yes… yes it does… umm, let me see what I can do.

BigToughMcGruff!!42NuTQdLO3 6779

Alright then. Chrome does have a Stylish add on btw. Never used it, but it's the same one, just nabbed it.


File: 1345160708713.jpg (22.57 KB, 272x231, Sad.jpg)

Yeah, I just haven't figured out what the code is to apply styles to sites yet.

BigToughMcGruff!!42NuTQdLO3 6781

Hm, alright then. The theme looks pretty spiffy otherwise. Either make the borders the same color as the post boxes or make them very similar like the other themes. Just stands out way to harsh as it is presently.

Right, but I don't have the ability to update it for here :P. Just noticed that the color wasn't the one I set for it, heh.

Derpy Theme - http://pastebin.com/HgbaE3M0

Please feel free to test it out and let me know of any improvements that could be made.

Anonymous 6785

Just a note; if you put these on userstyles for instance people could add them more easily until they're added to the site.

And the font is a bit much if it's used for everything - would make things hard to read if that's how things are in the body of messages too. Is it?

!!Littlepip 6786

File: 1345425406465.png (380.29 KB, 1545x891)

Noted, prepared to push to the site soon.

Not sure I like the look of no borders (left). How's this look with a 1px and darker (#434B58) border instead (right)?

>Just a note; if you put these on userstyles for instance people could add them more easily until they're added to the site.
Heh, right.. forgot about that. I'll do that next time.

>And the font is a bit much if it's used for everything - would make things hard to read if that's how things are in the body of messages too. Is it?

That was my thought initially but so far it has been alright for me so far. So far I had been avoiding changing the font for everything because of that reason… but for the Derpy theme I felt like it didn't feel "different" enough due to its color scheme. I'll be sure to ask around and get some more opinions on it.

>Noted, prepared to push to the site soon.

>Not sure I like the look of no borders (left). How's this look with a 1px and darker (#434B58) border instead (right)?

I did like the contrast between posts the borders added. That border definitely looks better but it's hard for me to tell in my current situation. I'm out on the road with a laptop that the colors don't quite look right on… I'll get back to ya on that tomorrow.

!!Littlepip 6788

I think I'll push the change for now as I think it's better than the current border. If you come up with any tweaks to it let me know and I'll see about pushing those then.

There are two themes I think would make MLPchan just look swell.
One would be a remake of the Colgate theme for Ponychan just for that "Close to home" feel.

Secondly would be an Octavia theme.
Who doesn't like to feel classy?

Sorry for the irrelevant post, I just wanted to make my two cents on the matter.

BigToughMcGruff!!42NuTQdLO3 6791

Just throwin' my two cents in as the original person who made the border complaint. The new darker borders work fine. I personally like the look of no borders better but the darker borders at least don't stand out as much.

!!Littlepip 6792

Our default Pone theme sits on top of Tinyboard's base Yotsuba B theme and just tweaks the font and text size to be like Colgate's post font. Though on second look, I see that the post numbers stand out from the datestamp pretty well in Colgate, and in the Cloudsdale theme here. I think I might try doing something similar for the rest of our themes.

What are people's opinions on the post borders in the Wonderbolts theme? I already made them a bit dimmer when I first placed the theme on the site, but I think they're still a bit too bright. Current thoughts are some combination of maybe making them dimmer, a different color (some sort of dark blue or gray?), or thinner.

The Wonderbolts theme's border is still a little too bright.
It's a bit distracting when you're trying to read textwalls.


Would it be perfectly acceptable to create some non-pony themes, such as a CLEAN theme or a BRUSHED METAL theme?

Anonthony!EEEEEEEE2c 6795

Absolutely. Anything that people put together that we think users will appreciate having as an option, we'll likely add when we can.

Your sheets will affect the whole World Wide Web.
You've forgot "@-moz-document domain(mlpchan.net)"

Do like this
@-moz-document domain(mlpchan.net)
Code goes here


File: 1351317962198.png (50.52 KB, 908x869, wat.png)

you can limit what pages stylish affects per theme you add with it :I

I figured most people would just do that.

File: 1351324911993.jpg (256.99 KB, 600x527, 170649 - artist quiss Chrysali…)

type what I did and people who use Chrome won't have to limit the sites it affects themselves.
And Firefox users won't have add the line, not to mention most people don't even know what to type.

Adding that little part to your code won't take longer than 10 seconds of your time, and you'll end up saving a lot of peoples time, not to mention make their life a whole lot easier

Well, as I'm the one responsible for the color scheme on the nightmare theme, and seeing how it got a great feedback, i might try a Fluttershy theme.
Not sure how good I'll do though.

!Huponyda2Y 6804

Is it possible to change the size of everything to something like the Yotsuba themes instead of the Pone theme?
Everything just seems a bit too… big

You mean on the Nightmare theme or on the whole site?
I assume you mean the nightmare theme. I can't into CSS, I actually just designed the color scheme for the main elements, Macil did the magic part.
So I'll ask him.

!Huponyda2Y 6807

body {
url("img/nightmare/bggradient.png") repeat-x bottom fixed,
url("img/nightmare/moon.png") no-repeat 100px 70px,
color: white;
font-family: serif;
font-size: 16px;
header h1, #settingsScreen h1 {
font-family: sans-serif;
font-size: 30pt !important;
.subtitle {
font-size: 14pt !important;
.homepage header h1 {
font-size: 40pt !important;
.homeblock h2 {
font-size: 24px;
div.boardlist {
font-size: 11pt;

change "boardlist" font-size to 9pt;
change the "subtitle" to 8pt;
change the "header h1, #settingsScreen h1" to 20pt;
And last, change the "body" font-size to 10pt;

There might be something else I've missed.. Just putting this out here

So i just realized I posted this in the wrong thread.
It's never too late - Fluttershy theme now available!

My theme's color scheme is now included in Hupony's Nightmare series of themes, as the Fluttershy theme there.
Screencap in the link!

Legendary!!VhZ4lFrash 6810

this theme is awesome, was it ever fully written?

Anonymous 6811

most of them are pretty good, and I'd like to see fully written and added soon.

there's also some http://userstyles.org/styles/browse/mlpchan

!Huponyda2Y 6812

The site is still under development, new features are getting added and everything, so as long as it's not implemented, it will only be partly written.
But it works right now for both Firefox and Chrome. I haven't experienced any issues nor have I received any negative feedback so I guess the story is the same for everybody

Moving this to /site/ as it's a bit more suited for a site-matter.
