I *love* the resizable icons. :)

# by Joebob on 04/10/06 at 16:07:07

Brilliant zooming icons thingy, if you could make the text backgrounds into speech bubbles, that'd be class.

# by Spookster on 04/10/06 at 16:32:26

this looks really cool, but any chance u could make a variant that can blend in on dark or black backgrounds? (black & white or so?)

# by MeDiCiNe on 04/10/06 at 17:51:03

For you kind sir *Done*

Blatantly one of thee best themes ever

# by kjdenison on 04/10/06 at 20:02:54

I would like to see better design. the zoom effect and the rollover time stamp is REALLY nice though. Mix that with a better layout, and WOW!

# by Bouba on 04/10/06 at 20:29:09

A huge thank goes to MeDiCiNe for porting it!! I didn't had time to rewrite it for Adium... I must say that I'm really amazed by your reviews!!! Thanks!

And by the way, kjdenison, you could always use some of the javascripts in it and integrate it in you own theme (the resizable image is a javascript, include it in a table for better layout manipulation to push the rest around. CSS won't do the trick...

Amazing! love the pic enlargement, and the time stamps!!

# by ascarinthesky510 on 04/10/06 at 22:38:06

Definitely my new defaul theme. This is awesome.

# by jms1223 on 04/11/06 at 00:21:42

awesome, can you maybe add a variant where the icons are alternating?

# by dancriel on 04/11/06 at 23:51:58

i second that

# by Maverick on 04/11/06 at 00:33:10

Wow!! the zoom and roll over effect is great!!! i would like more color options or maybe something like ichat bubbles or with a minimal style. Great work!!

# by Cortez on 04/11/06 at 02:28:29

Wow, great work on this messege style.

# by jms1223 on 04/11/06 at 17:08:34

can you also include "Autoreply from" or something to that effect, that would be great

# by drfloppy on 04/11/06 at 20:53:48

Awesome work on the zoom and roll overs. Could you add alternating icons variant and allow for the text to have a clear background? I really like to have my custom backgrounds and the colors around the text makes the window a bit too busy. Thanks for the great work

# by RAPMANkev on 04/12/06 at 20:56:01

Don't you want to make somthing like this: with the zoomable icons,
display for time and client in first line, where the name is, haha,

No, okay, I wish, would be to great :)


# by subsol on 04/15/06 at 23:37:13

i can't explain exactly why...but i simply love this one! i guess i tried most of the messagestyles, but this one... is simply the one for me and i can't explain it rationally, it doesn't even really fit what i was looking for, but it's so clean+clear.... sorry for this useless post, i'm not usually so 'irrational', but, hey....

# by gottacoppafeel on 05/16/06 at 01:42:38

lol i feel the exact same way

# by gottacoppafeel on 05/16/06 at 01:44:31

maybe a variant where it alternates blue and white like the list in itunes, etc?

# by skellener on 07/05/06 at 16:47:13

I've been looking for a theme like this. Thanks so much!

The fonts don't seem to work correctly. In particular Apple LiGothic does not work. Any reason for this? Other themes seem to work fine. This is the first that the font doesn't seem to show up in (for me).


# by skellener on 07/18/06 at 19:58:01

Just wondering if the fonts will be fixed anytime soon?

Great theme!

# by Bouba on 09/08/06 at 21:31:50

I've never experienced this... and I don't see why it behaves like this (it's in reality just a web page..)
Do you have any screenshots??

Maybe your font is corrupted :

# by skellener on 09/09/06 at 04:04:49

This happens on multiple machines. Font is fine.

Apple Li Gothic properly displayed in iChat...

Apple Li Gothic selected in Adium but displayed only as plain text...

Kinda wish user colors were available as well instead of preset ones.

Still a great theme!

# by gottacoppafeel on 07/12/06 at 01:25:27

any way of rounding the edges of the pics so it fits in better with the 1.0betas? and perhaps modding it to stay large when you click on it, then shrink when you click on them again? just a thought :)

# by Bouba on 09/08/06 at 21:30:03

I'd like to, but I don't think it is feasible... sorry

# by icemonkey004 on 04/29/07 at 14:17:02

This theme is awesome and I've been using it for awhile now. But i recently tried to mess with it a bit and apparently I don't know what I'm doing because I can't figure it out. I can edit CSS just fine and change colors and sizing and such, but what I was really trying to do was to make all the messages from one sender in one box until the next person IMs. you know what I mean? so that if someone types one thing, then types something else before other person types, it comes up in same window with maybe ">>" before it and no icon. What do you think? Could you fill me in a bit as to how to do that?

# by jr98664 on 06/03/07 at 18:42:58

This looks great.

# by n8n on 10/03/07 at 13:17:21

I registered just for this message style which I really prefer above all others I've used. The only thing i would really like is a 'both white' and 'both black' message style. and that with the same color for incoming and outgoing messages. Plus the color of web-links in messages are pretty unreadable, it would be really nice if you would show url's as in [url=]GAIA[/url].

I hope my comment is use-full and implantable, cheers

# by Leech on 06/09/09 at 23:06:53

It's great. I love it.
But in IRC you've no way to know who sent the message.
