Finally, I was a bit worried..
I even looked around for other pixel art forums, but they were either too inactive or lacked in quality..

I'm so glad it's back <3

It just doesn't feel like pixelation to me without that chunky gray/purple/yellow scheme.  ;) and these smilies are so green on this blue scheme! By the way, http://pixelation.wayofthepixel.net/ no longer works. Just wondering if the new host allows you subdomains like that.

Subdomains work a bit different on the new host. But I made a subdomain called pixelation now and put an index file there which just redirects to the normal url.
There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

Awesome, thanks. I wouldn't have known the forum was online again unless I got desperate and clicked the alternative urls chrome provided, as I've used the subdomain address pretty exclusively, and I imagine there were others.

You should probably just drop an .htaccess file in there and add some rewrite rules.

Do you guys need any assistance with anything? I'm working for a webhosting provider as a part time job, also fixing up things for our customers, so I could help you out if you want. If you don't have a backup of the theme I could at least install the image zoom stuff, I have that lying around somewhere.

The "plain white" and the "blue-tinted white" as background make it less comfortable to judge the quality of posted art. I hope at least that can be fixed soon. Keep up with the good work.

Well, from a color/contrast point of view, is a white background really optimal for displaying art? Not a rhetorical question. :P
I assume it depends on the work itself, but I doubt a lot of pixel art is intended to be viewed on a light background.

Anyways, I hope we'll get the old skin and the zoom function back soon :)
