This will be our new forum default theme, if anyone has trouble seeing with this theme please don't be afraid to ask and we will turn the select themes back on. This new theme has a completely new design to it, all credit goes to Cavey who has spent this past weekend working developing it, great work Cavey thanks so much for your hard work. The top menu consists starting from left to right the:

HOME button, will take you to the main home page of the site,

HELP button for any questions you may have of how to do something here on the site, if you can't find something don't fear to ask someone on staff for help,

THE RULES button is simple all have read them upon signing up, in case you forget we posted as a reminder, break them and and staff will be forced to make a decision about your stay here at the zoo, so please just don't break them and everything will be lots of fun and all good,

LOGOUT button is very simple, it will log you outta of your account on the zoo,

ARCADE button will lead you to the main arcade section with old games like frogger and pacman and donkey kong and also a bunch of newer games you may have never played before some are really fun and others are just simple and silly for a great laugh. Have fun competing against the rest of the zoo for the arcade champion spot  ;D,

GALLERY button will take you to the zoo's library which will house the entire library from futanari doujins to non-futanari doujins and other randon art work, eventually the movies will be back too. When you first enter the library it will show you all the latest additions since you were there last. Mark all seen and then you can return to the main screen of the library or sit back and enjoy all the latest additions totally up to you. All the zoo's material will remain downloadable as it was on WoF and WoJ all those years, the zoo's library is dedicated to both those sites and will take a bit to reupload all those wonderful things so please be patient during this process, after all is back up, it will then be reupdated with yet more doujins and also organized better as alot of the former unknowns doujins now have know artists and will be sorted properly then. Do to previous leeching causing us to hit daily downloads limits which is actually a very high download size, we implemented a new rule of 100 posts till you can use the mass download feature at the zoo, you can download one file at a time till then, but this this should help in keeping us running and not be down do to some one abusing their downloads privileges, anyone caught doing such or causing the site problems will be banned from the site forever. Happy postings and keep checking back to see all the new material that has been uploaded to the library on a regular basis,

SEARCH button will help you search through the site and all the posts and material here at the zoo pretty simple,

MEMBERS: button will take you to the members list, which will help you find other members that you can add to your buddies list to make it easier to find when they are on, or to block someone, if you find you have differences and can not socialize together well, don't take any disputes into your own hands you will be placing your own account at risk of penalties, report to someone on staff and we will take care of the issue the best we can,

PROFILE button will take you strait to your profile page and customizable options list, to change your profile, your avatar, your signature, or your password, ect..., so have fun personalizing your own space here at the zoo,

MY MESSAGES button will take you strait to your personal email here at the zoo and by gosh when you got mail in there it will even have a number there to let you know how much new mail you have,

MY ALBUMS will take you to your own personal album here at the zoo, to upload some of your favorite pics and things to share here at the zoo with other members.


Any other issues or problems or confusion please ask staff and we will help you best we can and as soon as we can, or any issues with the theme or things that you believe we should address and look into feel feel to reply a post below.

Also anyone interested in making a banner for the zoo is free to do thus, please just make sure the Zoo's name is somewhere on it, preferably on the left hand side, and yours as well for creating it if you like, banners should only be 150 pixels high and width at 1050. Feel free to post any new banner creations also below or ask staff if any questions. Thanks for everyones help, hope all are enjoying the day  ;D

also there is different color schemes to this theme, easy to change for those who are not to particular on purple. First you go to the profile button on the top menu bar, from there you go to looks and layout preferences, scroll down the screen and you will see "What color scheme do you want:" and then the four different color schemes as of right now of purple, green, teal, and gray scale and our test which is the one we use to make different color themes. We will be implementing more at a later time, any new color schemes you like to see eventually just drop a line below and let us know :yeah:

To be honest, the color schemes are a bit puzzling. It seems obvious if you look at much of the current theme that the base color is intended to be blue. But it has blue with black borders and a purple background. Puzzling to say the least. Granted cavey has said that he's not a big creative or aesthetic guy but still.

Nothing is ever actually finalized around here SRB, things are always changing lol. Cavey has done just a few basic ideas in showing me how to also do this process, as number one I was unaware how to do it with our software, plus the purple and black theme was my idea, my favorite colors  :hehe:, I'm still learning. My main priority has been the gallery lately and trying to add some new little features that everyone can enjoy their own little personal touches here, till bigger and better things come along for the zoo later. Plus at same time, I'm trying to finally revise my story and also working on my piece for your Halloween challenge. Needless to say been bt busy lately but we are trying give it time, we'll get there :yeah:

My problem with creating different themes is that alot of the colored items are images. They are not that easy to change for each color scheme. That with my lack of design skill is hindering the design of the site. If you or anyone you know would like to help around here we are always welcoming.

What I wanted for this site is something custom, not a theme that half a dozen or more sites already use.
This is a very small site and because of that we need to make ourselves unique and a custom theme is the easiest way to do that.
If its Broke I'll fix it, If I can't fix it then we are screwed and not in any good way.

But um, and correct me if I'm mistaken, didn't you just say that you can't customize the buttons due to your 'lack of design skill'?

Maybe cavey can and or he can't, but I can design stuff, customizable buttons are far easier than building products in secondlife or in  IMVU. Which I have done both, so to answer your question Srb in regards to cavey is waiting for me and the massive library to go back or someone that likes doing graphic designs to jump in and give us a hand. I like the progress here so far it seems pretty good to me, in less two months time we have grown a bit with many changes since we started. Those banners aren't even complete I just threw something together to fill the space and make it look somewhat aright till I can finish them or others decide to make some too. Considering cavey and I both have way over seven full days, including the root of time in on the site, I'd say we are doing the best we can and doing pretty good. So I'll say I need help, who has any graphic ability's and would not mind helping out here, or good things come to those who wait. Cause I don't see anyone even close to a day but maybe Geo with close to 17 hours, I'd say we been both working hard in or spare time, cause we have big dreams for this place and will see them thru, it just takes time. I hope I offend nobody but please anyone like to help send me a pm, I need people that can design and have great vivid imaginations and experience cause right now not much time to train.

As dewguy said we have both put in alot of time in this site and some of the graphics are not really at the top of our priority list. There are other reasons for me not to use a pre-made theme. We have a few mods that edit quite a bit of the forums templates including my own custom work and as of right now it would be easier to continue to work on what we have then to try to bring in another theme and try to get it working without any errors.

I appreciate your advice but please do remember right now its just two of us and we can only do so much.
If its Broke I'll fix it, If I can't fix it then we are screwed and not in any good way.

There has been quite a few additions recently to the zoo besides all the new lovely banners thanks to d.a.f. and morbo , we have added a commissions spot for the artists located as a child board of the artists room. We also have a new languages spot, for those of other native languages (not English) to enjoy open speech in their native tongues located in child board of general and off topic chat. Also a special group for artists that wish to showcase their works in the main gallery, upon approval from staff. There also has been a new added Japanese honorifics system to our names, that change along with your membership status, the more posts you have, your rating will go up, as this happens your honorific suffixes will change. We think it's pretty cool and hope you all enjoy as well. Many more changes to come in the new year hope you all enjoy your stay here at The Zoo. Have a smiley day and Happy New Year  :hehe:

As previously noted: http://www.futanarizoo.com/index.php?action=profile;sa=theme ,this link here will take you to the look and layout preferences, there you will see the option, "What color scheme do you want, ' there is several options at present of Purple, which is forum default, green, teal, and gray scale and the test, which is what we use for testing different color schemes.

Currently we are working on making new buttons and different color schemes, to make our very own customized forum theme, our theme is modifiable by changing it''s color scheme, we don't want to be like everyone else out there, and thats why things will take time to design and do, Many plans and many ideas in works all take time to finish and test, so keep your eyes pealed for new added additions to the site on a regular basis.
