Description
This was done as a joke at first, but then I realized that this could actually be put to really good use. If you use the hack that Andreas made that allows you to only let certain usergroups use certain styles, you could really have some fun with this one. Maybe use it as a slightly banned usergroup. Who knows.

Basically, this style is pure white. Everything's white. All of the images are white. All text is white. Borders are white. The only things that are not white are the moderator check boxes, drop down lists, etc. Things that I cannot make white are obviously not white.

Use it. Don't use it. I figured that there are people out there who would enjoy this style. Now the reason it's still worthwhile is because if you hold "control" and press "a", it will show everything on the page. This being the reason you can have fun with users. Use it however you wish.

Styles to Upload: 1
Files to Upload: 234 images & index files, 14 folders
Templates to edit: 0
Install Buttons to Click: 1


Installation

1. Upload the snowstorm folder to your images directory.
2. In your AdminCP, go to Styles & Templates -> Download / Upload Styles -> Import Style XML File
3. Upload the XML file from your computer.

sounds cool, the only issue I'd have with this, is making sure a robot.txt is setup to disallow google bots, while that style is up, or you will break a number of google search guidelines. ;) even if you don't use google...

Google doesn't like the whole white text on white background thing. It thinks you're trying to "hide" keywords in your page and they will ban your site from Google.

Try explaining to them that your site was currently experiencing a "Snow Storm" and you hadn't gotten around to shoverlingthe snow yet.

Well yeah... but if it's used as the "Miserable Users Style", Google won't ever know.

I don't have one. It's setup on my board so that only a certain usergroup can view it. Sorry. =\
