New Site Styles! (December 22 - Avanna Theme)

Hey guys, it's been a while, but alternate "styles" (site skins/themes) are finally being implemented. We have one here today and another one coming very soon. These styles will be character focused, like many of you wanted, and will have character(s) in the banner. You can expect to see more come out as time goes on.

The first two choices for styles/characters were decided by staff members, but there will be opportunities for users to let us know what Vocaloids or other synths they want to see. We will have a thread up in the near future asking for suggestions which will influence what future styles will come to the site (though others still may appear randomly).

As well, we will be launching contests so that users can create a style which will work similar to the current default, where art from multiple artists will be used together. There will be a prize! However, this will come a bit later, as we are still working out a few glitches/mastering the interface and need to make sure all the issues are figured out before we go asking for artwork from artists.

Potential and Known Issues:

As this is a new theme, there will likely be some other issues. For any issues you find (hard to read texts, visual glitches, etc.), please report them in the [Feedback and Suggestions] section. Either in the Known Issues thread or its own thread will do.

About the theme

In celebration of Daisy's anniversary, VNN has released a theme featuring their UTAU mascot! The main art is by Rikumuro featuring a strawberry background using a brush by mini0714. Happy (late) birthday, Daisy!

Very cuuute
I"m so glad u guys listened to the comments bc that just goes so far with community projects like this
I'd recommend one thing; maybe have the VVN logo change colors as well? It looks a little funky in contrast with the Daisy skin :"D

As the logo designer, I'll give my thoughts on this if it would be alright. Above all else, it is the staff's decision, so please keep this in mind.

I do agree, the contrast is strong between the logo and the theme. I believe this is both a pro and con. Pro: It helps the logo to stand out more compared to the default theme. Con: It does not blend as nicely and feels out of place.

The problem is: If the decision goes forward to change the color of the logo, this may need to be done with all future themes. Now, I do not know the staff's plan with themes, so it is possible that only a few themes have this change, or some themes will not have our logo in place.
I'm not for or against the idea, as it makes sense. It just means that if we are to go through with it, many versions of the logo may need to be created, which then may seem unnecessary or make it confusing as to which is the true logo.

I hope my words make sense. Again, I'm not against or for the idea, I think it's a good idea, I just wanted to share my concerns on it.
I will agree to what the staff decides to do about this.

(Sorry for the long post, just wanted to share my thoughts/concerns)

I don't think the colors of the logo compared to the banner art bother me (I don't think I would have noticed, to be honest). But I think you're right that it could be an issue down the line with other artwork.

I think it would be easier to just put some sort of white border around or white gradient behind the logo in order to separate it from any potential clashing colors. OR you could make a talking bubble around VVN so it looks like Daisy (or any other future character) is saying the website name, I think that would be so cute. ^^

Hey guys, a new style has been launched! This one features artwork of an alternate outfit Luka drawn by Superstellar. This is the other style that was decided by staff before we started asking for suggestions, but ones based on user suggestions are in progress! If you head over to Superstellar's twitter you may even be able to find a preview! :sora_lili:

As usual, if you see any visual issues/hard to read text let us know!

A new site style is available just in time for the holidays! This time, it's a custom, VVN themed Hatsune Miku designed by Superstellar. You can find it by the name "Hatsune Miku - MikuVerse." Miku was easily the most requested character in the Suggest a Style thread so we hope you all enjoy! If you have a style you'd like to see, please leave a message there.

As usual, if you see any visual issues/find text hard to read, please leave your feedback either here or in the feedback and suggestions section!

We have more themes currently in progress, with art from multiple different artists! We hope you look forward to them.

Awesome, Miku even has star hair ties. Superstellar's art is really nice for these banners so far (the Luka one is so dramatic, I love it), I can already tell I'm gonna enjoy using the Miku style next. : D

Thanks for this! The turquoise colour felt a bit hard on the eyes at first, but you get used to it quickly^^
The art is good too, but one part of me is somewhat disappointed that it's not very moe, as I'm a devoted fan of the cute moe art style rather than the slightly more realistic take seen on the header. (I'm not talking down the artwork, it's great, just not quite what I hoped for personally. I'm sure a lot of people enjoy it and maybe it'll grow on me too^^).

Oh, by the way, in mobile view, the latest posts normally shown towards the bottom of the home page don't show up on the MikuVerse theme. Not really an issue, just wanted to point that out.

Not sure why they aren't appearing, but we'll look into it!

We're not restricting any particular art styles from appearing in future themes, nor are we against having multiple themes for one character (though our main focus right now is diversity in character and colour), so it's definitely possible we'll have something more like what you're looking for in the future!

Hello everyone,

Today, we have a new theme to feature!
This one is a Fukase theme. It features a more neutral color scheme, consisting of browns and tans, as well as muted reds!
Enjoy the new theme!

2200

We have some more themes in the works for everyone, please look forward to those as well!

You can look at the first post of this thread to see how to change styles for the site. This one is titled "Fukase - Lead the Way"

About the theme

This theme was created inspired by Vocaloid Fukase. You will see a lot of "Point", or チビちゃん. In other words, Fukase's companions are everywhere to guide you throughout the site.
It's time for Fukase to lead the way!
The illustration of the banner and nodes are created by RazzyRu.

Wow! It's very cute!
Just curious, I have this idea: what about FukaFlower (Fukase and Flower) as its theme?

Hello, everyone!

A new site style has been added!
This time, it features more than one character - in fact, 6!
It's none other than the Crypton Crew themselves!

Our new site theme artwork is created by Move->Forward, a former staff member on VocaVerse Network.
Move has been a wonderful part of the community; I believe having her work continue with us as a style for the forums will be a wonderful addition!

Please enjoy the new theme, titled "Crypton All-Stars"



About the theme

This theme features each Crypton/Piapro character: Hatsune Miku, Kagamine Rin, Kagamine Len, Megurine Luka, MEIKO, and KAITO.
Each artwork used for the banner and nodes is created by Move->Forward.

Artwork

Each artwork is created by Move->Forward, and uploaded on behalf of Move->Forward.
