A simple and well-rounded message style.

This message style has been obsoleted by Glow Light and Glow Dark, and will be eventually removed.

Notice that the preview has trouble reloading the corners every time you change the variant.

# by desp on 09/05/06 at 18:41:18

Yes, that's right. Unfortunately, that seems to be a bug in either Adium or WebKit -- the lower corners are located in :before/:after pseudoelements of an empty div, and perhaps that's the reason why the preview doesn't refresh them properly. However, after closing and re-opening the window, the style displays without any problems.

Great message style, 5 ducks! Nice and simple, but it's still pretty to look at.

My only request is that you add a few more color variations... in particular, I'd love to see blue vs. grey instead of just grey vs. blue (or whatever other color I pick). Other than that, no complaints!

Thanks. I'll do that in the upcoming update.

OK quite frankly, this is the prettiest message style I've seen for a while. Would love a blue vs. green colour variation but this is still a wonderful style!

# by desp on 09/05/06 at 18:42:17

Thanks. You'll find that variation in the upcoming update.

Excellent! Reminds me of Automator's nice interface. :-)

5 Ducks.

yeah big one, if you make it a little bit smaller it would be a default theme..

having problem with font colors when using it.

Can you describe in some more detail the problems that you're having? I'm not aware of any problems with font colors; however, the current version doesn't support font sizes larger than 10 pixels.

This one gets four ducks from me. I just wish the name bar were a little thinner.
