Remember "Simple", from Adium 0.7 and before? Well, it's no longer bundled with Adium 0.8, so here it is instead! It's also had a couple of minor fixes.

This is not my work, I am simply reposting it for those who are interested.

Thanks! I was wondering why they took it out of .8.. it's always been my favorite theme.

It's coming back AFAIK just once they make it compatable again :)

Actually - nope, it's gone from Adium for good. That's why Evan asked me to post this here :)

Sweet. I was looking for this. It's always been my favourite; simple with a splash of colour. Thanks.

Thank You!! I reverted back to 0.77 because I wanted this message style... Now I can use 0.80 !!

Actually, it looks like "SimpleSeparateLines" is the message style I wanted.

i love this theme, and have used it in previous versions of Adium. However, I wish we could change the color scheme from the blue and green. providing other combinations (blue, grey, red, purple, etc etc) would make this really perfect.

Thank you! I was asking about this on the forum and now here it is. It looks great.

Two minor points. I think someone on the forum mentioned they preferred the option where additional messages could be indented. I would like that too.

Also, I BELIEVE in the original you coould have the time appear unobtrusively over to the right of the message, instead of appearing directly by the user's name. If I'm misremembering, I apologize, but if not, that would be lovely.

Thank you!

I tried this, but settled on SimpleSeparateLines. The reason is that the behavior for adjaced messages from the same person just isn't what I wanted. Look at the two adjacent lines by "Evan" in the screenshot here: the second doesn't have the name.

# by bob_the_gorilla on 05/10/05 at 20:08:56

Entirely deliberate, luis. ;)

# by Wes on 06/20/05 at 22:04:35

Why does the line of user text increase in font size once it's entered? The other Simplicity style does this also, and it's driving me nuts.

I'd really like to see Retro get updated... I'm still using it even though it's slightly broken, that's how much I like it :-)

I love this message view. It's the only one I like to use. save screen space and is atractive with out being distracting.

Is there anyway to change the color scheme? I was hoping for a Blue vs Grey (me being blue, person I'm having the conversation with being grey). It's a great theme nonetheless. Thanks ^-^
