I like this new look Razz I'd say that the only issue that really sticks out here, is the logo. I'm not sure how this could be fixed, maybe a tranparent background? :O

Though apart from the logo I think it looks great, and I like that we have a quick reply now Very Happy

:] Thanks, Arca! Yeah... I'm working on a new logo, but it does take time. XD

If ANYBODY has an image they think is worth considering, I welcome them to post it. I'm a great editor-by-way-of-gIMP, but I'm not the only person here with the ability to have ideas. XD

Another double-post:

I've massively re-done the banner icon.

Opinions?

(This is something like the twentieth version, after a craptonne of adjustments and fixes. Razz)

Triple-post! Going for a record, Tegid? XD

Anyway, if you like the current icon, thank Rabbit, who found the higher-resolution font. Razz

XD Also thank me, because I did the rest. haha

Really liking the new phpBB setup. ^_^ I like the look of the fleur de lis/luce, but I've gotta say, the contrasting fading effects of the header background and text make it kinda hard to read.

Anyway, I was messing around a bit with the logo/header last night and it looks like our concepts turned out to be rather similar. I figured I'd post a couple here to see what y'all think. (Actually, these two are both the same design, but with different background colors. I think I like the purple one, personally.) So again, just dumping my ideas; take 'em or leave 'em.





I'm not entirely sure how the coding and setting up of the header works, but in the event that people do like either of these, the background color codes are #696969 (grey) and #4A1C4A (purple) for reference.

I'm not a big fan of the bevel on the Fleur, looks very "sharp", like it would hurt me if i poked it..and the font is difficult to read and too "tall". I wasn't going to say much until I was ready to pull out photoshop and try my hand at it myself, but as long as people are commenting I figured I'd might as well throw my two-cents in.

Fae, I just noticed that there are actually several "Back to Top" buttons on the page - they're the little dotted upward-pointing arrowheads. There's one in the bottom left-hand corner of the page, above where it says, "Quick Reply," and there's one in the bottom right-hand corner of each individual post (along with a "down" button). It took me a while to build up the curiosity to click on the arrows and figure that out, so I'm not surprised no one else has noticed it yet. =P

Regardless, yay for this discovery!!!

I'm playing with the displays on the admin panel; current project: see if I can set up multiple forum skins, between which users can choose.

Frankly, I adore the current header, but that's because I like the shapes and aesthetic of the writing and the fleur... not their legibility. XD
I know not everybody else is fond of them, and if I can set it up where everybody can look at one they prefer, without me actively altering it to a majority preference... then I'd like to do that.
Not sure if I can yet.

Oh, and I'm back from break, by the way. Smile

Double-Post:

Dagnabbit. User-changeable skin sets are not apparently an option, which makes us a bit sad, since we like it when they are an option. :-/

Gweh. We'll set up Torr's most recent purpley icon for our banner, for now.

Thanks, Torr!

Can we possibly get the backdrop of the header to color-match the purple on the banner or is the gradient kind of a done deal?

I think I'd have an easier time getting the banner to colour-match the header, honestly. XD

I'll fidget with it after I clean up the formatting on the dictionary.

The hex color is #4A1C4A if that helps anything.

Thank you, Saint Mel. Smile

EDIT: Changed; I saved the old form just in case there's a random preference for it.

Opine?

Not sure if it's like this for anyone else, but on my screen, the banner is larger than the purple section of the gradient and it sticks out into the other colored sections. Perhaps resizing the banner or the gradient sections would fix this? (I don't know if it's like this for everyone or if there's something funny about my screen, so I won't push the issue just yet.)

The banner IS larger than the purple part of the gradient; I personally prefer it that way, because expanding the gradient means making it waaaay longer a banner, and dropping the other colours is (in my opinion) boring as Hell. :-/
