Nice work!

I hate to see error messages in my log and had several pop up with your skin related to some typos...
I hope you don't mind a suggestion to look at these:

In 'Skins\Rain Forum\style.inc':
You missed a closing variable hash # on line 105 causing 'Formula syntax' errors.
Shape2=Line (2*#formScale#),(1*#formScale#),((#formWidth#*#formScale#)-(7*#formScale#)),1 | Extend widthAndColor2

Line 81 has a section name [MeterBG] but your other skins are using a section variable expecting [MeterBackground:W] causing 'Formula syntax' errors. I renamed the section:
; [meterBG]
[MeterBackground]


In 'Skins\Rain Forum\rainforum.ini' you have unmatched brackets on lines 1476 & 1477 causing error messages; an extra bracket at the beginning of the formulas.
X=(([MeterBackground:W]/10)
Y=((([MeterBackground:H]-[#CURRENTSECTION#:H])/2)


Also in that file, longer THREAD titles overlap the REPLY column. I would suggest changing the clipping value on line 64 from
W=(220*#formScale#) to W=(170*#formScale#)

Now there were no annoying errors message ;-) and I can really enjoy your skin :great:
Thanks for sharing a very nice skin! :thumbup:

No need to be sorry... I really like your skin, but my "Log Phobia" had me hunting for the cause(s).
Happy to help.

If you post an update I'll definitely check it out (remember to check the log! ;-) )
