ok im now worried this is my first theme,

Its a mixture of SMF Default and Classical YABB SE, difference is it roughly what the Babylon would look like inverted.
Yet I have changed some colours to make it easier on the eyes.

Preview

I need to thank Tippmaster for taking a look for errors, Wix3l for pushing me in right direction and of course teaching me over last 3 years, and scottjess  for  helping with the  early problems, and of course both people who helped in fixing body.

thanks, I think I did well for my first theme considering I know NOTHING about PHP etc

It's too dark IMO, it's very hard to read. Also, you'll want to change the images of the linktree to adapt the backgroundcolor:

http://thelastbreathe.co.uk/test/Themes/Negative/images/icons/linktree_main.gif

And change the size of the images in the footer.

I agree with xenovanis about the things she says. I would also suggest changing the Who's Online image and the w3c/php/mysql images at the bottom ;)

As I said it is based on what SMF Default would look as a Negative, compared to what it looked like, i thnk it looks better, but as you said its "IMO", but I shall look into sorting those images... always thought they looked odd.  I am a person of the Dark Side so I dont think its Dark Enough but im gonna leave it.  But thanks both of you xenovanis and forsakenlad.

Its amazing how good effects you can get with such a simple cmd ... they fitnicely with the site ... thats the linktree fixed working on images now

you should replace the xhtml and css images with the ones from the classic theme, or make them actuall size. It gives me a "Count the pixels" effect atm...

But it's a very nice theme :)

Deaks

thanks both for the feedback,

They are al currently i think its 25x15 I reduced size as someone advised making them smaller to fit in with the theme

Kinda... modified text colors etc slightly... was bored and took a screenshot of SMF Default, and was messing about in PSP and went to colours, negative and liked what I saw, so i went through and found out what the negative of all the colours were.  Just waiting for two things then its finished, tippmaster kindly agreed to try and sort the banner he made and my friend is checking to make sure it works on his test board.

Deaks

I haven't tried this theme on my site or anything. Just wanted to say I like the colors!

Also I wanted to point out that your help button on your preview site is slightly higher that the others. I'm using FF 1.5beta
