It's fun. Seems like I'm chatting on DOS mode. Great.

I love this theme - especially since I use IR_Black in both Terminal and TextMate. What I'd love to see is a buddy icon added, similar to the aNon theme ( Perhaps a miniature version to replace ~ if the icon exists, with either a default or the ~ if it doesn't. Preferably this would respond to the Show User Icons checkbox.

Just for kicks, I actually modified the theme to do so on my own. Quick and easy and now this is about as perfect as it gets for me!

I'm new to themes, but I'm fine with editing CSS files, what I would like is for the color of the message to match the username. what CSS file would I edit. and how?

Hyperlinks are set to default color, which is really hard to read on the black background. Can we get some easier hyperlink colors?

i just submitted version 1.3 to address this issue. thanks for the suggestion.

Hey, just curious if there was any way I could make each member of a group chat (IRC channel) have a different colored username?

I find it quite hard to differentiate between usernames, and find it easier to pick out messages if the usernames are different colors. Is there any way I can modify this myself?

Hello, I was just wondering what the license was for this theme. I've made a couple of tweaks and put it up in a github repo, but realized that I wasn't positive it was GPLv3 with the rest of Adium. Can you please confirm the licensing terms? I will modify or remove my repo as necessary.

Thank you!

Whoops, meant GPLv2, sorry.

# by tbremer on 10/24/14 at 17:27:08

Do you take pull requests? I'd like to add a new theme to the project.

I like this theme because it's fast. Stockholm looks great but is just too sluggish these days...
