Spreading some Valentine's Day love

February has arrived, and Valentine's Day is approaching! Whether or not you have a special someone in your life, we thought it was time to spread some love - in the form of a new seasonal theme :P .

This is a theme that myself and Nilla have put together. Normally, this is where I'd say "but Nilla did 90% of the work" - although, that's not really true in this case: she did closer to 99% of the work on this one :P . The theme itself consists of quite a few elements of previous themes: it's based largely on the Easter theme (with red replacing green), and the font comes from Obsidian Metal. It also presented an opportunity for us to improve our CSS skills: the hearts in the page background are an imageless CSS effect, for example.

Of course, if pink love hearts aren't your thing, then all of the usual themes remain on the theme chooser. But, otherwise, enjoy :) !

The buttons are also CSS effects as well, so this theme is mostly image-free aside from a few things such as the topic buttons (add reply, new topic, etc) and the forum markers you see on the main page. :) I hope all of you like it!

CJ you give me too much credit, you are always there to help fix my horrible mistakes so without you helping with that none of these themes would look as amazing as they do <3

You know, I'm starting to think a dark version of this theme might have looked quite nice. But, I guess we can just do that next year :P .

Thanks for the kind words, everyone :) !

BTW, since I made a pink base for the Cheshire emoticons a couple of days ago, I've decided to put that onto this theme. IMO, it fits better than the red one which was there previously!

Very thematically appropriate! Only the post listings are a bit hard to read when searching.

Now that Valentine's Day has come and gone, I've switched the default theme back to the usual TCH theme. However, I've left the Valentine's Day theme on the selector for now, in case anyone still wants to use it.
