Forum Theme

Postby Neal » Sat May 03, 2014 9:43 pm

I spent the afternoon optimising the website, and wouldn't you know it - the forum broke.

I will fix it tomorrow - what do you think of this new theme? Should we keep it?

It's alright. I don't hate it, but I'm not 'Wow!' about it, either. Having just lived through the massive theme change over on Talkbass, I can take another forum upgrade with ease.

I do tend to like having dark text on a light background, as opposed to the opposite.

A bit ordinary looking but not a problem for me

I'll see what I can do. Definitely want to move away from the dark background

At the end of the day, the theme isn't important. It's the fun we jolly folk have that matters. Even when it's slow, I like hanging out here.

Okay!! We're back in action with a new, lighter design. I will continue to tweak but I have spent my entire Sunday afternoon working on this and am taking a break :P

Everything should work exactly the same as before whilst hopefully being a little easier on the eyes. This design is also optimised for mobile devices (try resizing the window), so it should be much easier to use on the go. Let me know how you get on.

This also gives me an excuse to make a post on the main site about the forum and push it out across the social networks. So how about we get a few posts going and hopefully entice a few more beautiful people in here? :)

To celebrate I have a new avatar, huzzah.

I dig it, no complaints here. Before the forum looked exactly like the Marshall Roadhouse so I don't mind the variation

Yes! I dig it! The light font on the dark background was very tough on the eyes. Plus my favorite color is orange...so there ya go.

Awesome work Neal! Keep it up!

Even though I'm new here, it seems to be just fine. One great thing I have noticed, it seems to be a troll free zone which is really quite nice indeed.
