    Nice ^^ Ammmm Can you make this " iMessage for Mac OS X Lion "

    # by bobjr on 07/13/11 at 02:10:04

    # by Igor10k on 07/21/11 at 14:39:00

    very smooth and nice animations.. suits Lion very well!
    btw, scroll does not work in HUD substyle )

    ты еще и русский что ли? )) спасибо )

    # by bobjr on 07/21/11 at 15:34:08

    что ли русский) для HUD пока отключил, так как iOS scroll еще не прикрутил.
    Спасибо, голосовать не забываем)

    # by Igor10k on 07/21/11 at 15:36:04

    так во льве же вроде и не надо подключать ниче ) стандартный скролл и так хорош )
    проголосовал )

    # by RedshiftMD on 07/23/11 at 04:18:21

    I love the style, but would it be possible to make it respect the font setting from the Adium message preferences? I'm on a high DPI display and 13pt text is uncomfortably small.

    # by bobjr on 07/23/11 at 04:21:52

    thx, yes, soon in new version =)

    # by arnie on 07/25/11 at 20:18:07

    I can't see to change my font..

    i'm on mac os x lion...

    # by bobjr on 07/25/11 at 20:20:01

    because now it is not available, soon in new version

    # by arnie on 07/25/11 at 20:21:10

    # by bobjr on 07/25/11 at 20:31:16

    this week =)

    # by ferri on 07/26/11 at 00:32:18

    hello, im havig problems to scroll through the conversation, is this normal?

    # by bobjr on 07/26/11 at 00:34:26

    hmm show me, in other styles too ?

    # by ferri on 07/26/11 at 00:59:37

    no, just with this one, too bad, i really like it, i think i'll get used

    # by bobjr on 07/26/11 at 01:02:29

    add me to the conference

    # by fo0tprintz on 07/26/11 at 03:23:24

    I'm having similar problems. Did not have this problem with other styles. I'm on Lion.

    # by fo0tprintz on 07/26/11 at 22:34:00

    v1.3 fixes this for me! Love the built in update prompt.

    # by ferri on 07/26/11 at 23:43:51

    another sugestion is to lock the scroll when there is nothing to scroll

    # by bobjr on 07/26/11 at 23:45:35

    reboot Adium

    # by ferri on 07/26/11 at 23:47:40

    the problem stills

    # by dtn on 07/27/11 at 02:50:36

    I'm not seeing this "iOS-like scrollbar." The scrollbar appears normal. I'm assuming the scrollbar is suppose to appear like it would on iOS devices. In any case, very nice theme.

    # by bobjr on 07/27/11 at 02:58:24

    OS version?

    # by dtn on 07/27/11 at 03:04:11


    # by bobjr on 07/27/11 at 03:05:47

    sorry, only for Lion OS

    # by CalmDriving on 07/31/11 at 06:09:50

    I just downloaded the update and now the Black and White background is not transparent like it used to be. Am I missing something? That was my favorite :(

    # by mtths on 08/01/11 at 00:28:49

    - Facebook bubbles added

    Are these special? I mean .. for me, after restarting Adium, it looks like the grey bubbles?

    # by bobjr on 08/01/11 at 00:32:17

    # by mtths on 08/01/11 at 00:33:12

    Quick answer. :)

    Ah, okay. Thanks for that!

    # by fo0tprintz on 08/09/11 at 21:11:36

    Great theme, but it stopped working when my system couldn't access:

    # by bobjr on 08/10/11 at 16:03:24

    fixed in v1.5

    # by fo0tprintz on 08/10/11 at 17:21:52

    Thanks for the quick fix! Was missing using my Lighty theme :)

    # by fo0tprintz on 09/06/11 at 19:39:03

    having some trouble accessing, still seeing a lag with the theme actually loading. running 1.5 in the latest adium release.

    # by bobjr on 09/07/11 at 20:06:14

    Lighty v1.6 is now available

    # by mathuaerknedam on 08/15/11 at 21:19:54

    It would be nice if the sender's name would appear when hovering over a consecutive message from that sender.

    # by vongrim on 09/07/11 at 08:02:19

    Hi, nice message style, but I have a problem, it just stopped working, I canīt see messages anymore, Iīm on Lion right now and the Adium version is the 1.4.3. thx ;D

    Hello guys,

    I tried the theme but had a weird problem with it.
    The theme is calling for "", i'm not sure this is approved by Adium :-) . It probably save data or send ads... I don't know but I delete it from my system.
    Be careful using it !

    # by berkleebassist on 03/06/14 at 19:04:15

    Actually, as far as I can tell, @bobjr switched his own website to be a Tumblr, and as a result, moved the "update" CSS he uses to inform users of updates to this other website, which I suspect also belongs to him. If you hit the URL it calls, you'll see it's just a bit of CSS:

    display: none !important;

    content: "1.8";
    color: white;
