Dear people of deviantART and the internet, I present: Bubble Gum, a Skype Chat Style.
My friend and Designer James and I decided over a month ago that we would enter the Skype Chat Style Contest. After his amazing job creating the design it was my job to turn it into CSS.
The Skype chat CSS is a pain. It's cluttered, nested in a way that is inhuman and not very easy to understand fast enough IMHO. I had that confirmed by James, who heard a lot of complains about it all over the web.
The reason we decided to release it already is simple: We tried hundred of times to submit it to the Skype contest but all we got were auto-generated rejection emails indicating either that it just didn't work (without any explanation WHAT didn't work) or that the CSS was missing (which is bogus, we've checked several times. It's in there!).
Eventually we got fed up and even though we won't win anything now (tbh I doubt anyone will win anything. It acts too much of a scam if you ask me) we didn't want to throw away the big effort we put into the theme and instead share the wealth.
Enjoy this theme like we're enjoying it. And feel free to tell us about any bugs or importances we forgot to add.
