And the winner is.....

Postby alyssa » Sun Jan 29, 2012 10:50 am

Our winning design in the Mick banner contest was created by our very own MIMT. Congratulations, Hannah!!!

This design in going to be used to create a new skin for the site. Shortly, the new skin will be in place and will become our default skin for a day so that everyone can see the beautiful new skin. After that, we will default back to the current Alex skin we are using now. If you choose to use the Mick skin you will have to set it yourself, which is very easy to do.

Step 1: Click on the User Control Panel
Step 2: Click on Board preferences
Step 3: Under board styles, use the drop down menu to choose the Mick option
Step 4: Click submit

*note: you might have to refresh you screen to see the new skin
**Also note that if you use Firefox as your browser, you may need to make sure that you have selected British English as your Language in the Board Preferences section of the UCP

We hope you enjoyed this contest and are looking forward to another one with another of Alex's characters.

We would also like to take a moment to say a great big THANK YOU, to all that submitted a banner(s), we appreciate it very much.

Fondly,
Alyssa, Sharon, SirenSong, Moonmad, Kath40

I went to user control panel and then to board preferences, but I don't see anything about "board styles". Anything I'm missing?

Just for today, in honor of the announcement of the winner, we programmed it so that everyone would have to use the new style with the Mick banner. Later on tonight or early tomorrow, we'll reset the controls so that you can then choose which style you would like. So for today only, there is no style choice as Alyssa outlined above.
