Post by zebadee on Wed Oct 05, 2011 1:13 am

Hi smile
Happy with current.?
Prefer this?
http://mcstylists-overclock.forumotion.com/?theme_id=172477


N.B. Forum header - icons can be changed (obviously Header will be McT's).
As can font size - color etc.
Background as is now or similar.
Depending on visibility of forum topics/posts.

SW version is cool, but not as easy to read as this one.

Hi smile
Story so far.

N.B. Interesting 4 viewpoints, yet only 3 votes. lol!

This feedback is much appreciated.

Things to further to consider.

The "Star Wars" transparency.
Shouldn't be a problem.
Why?
Firstly the intended background will be darker.
e.g.


Current active forum width is say 80%.
Increase this to 95%+.
This has the same effect as increasing font size from 12 to 14.
Font size 12 is used in "demo" 14 here.
Of course font size can also be increased (not in demo mode).
Font color too can be easily changed (maybe green as is now).
If green is used then background maybe more like this.



Personally it makes little difference to me.
Other than ....
By changing from current (mainly CSS code)*.
The suggested format, is more click & save.
Making it far easier to add - edit etc.
Could be easier for new founder to ease in.
(Should this ever happen.)


*CSS style sheet looks like this.
* {
margin: 0px;
padding: 0px;

}
html {
background-color: #1a1a1a;

font-size: 100%;
height: 100%;
}
#min-width {
min-width: 750px;
}


body {
background-color: #1a1a1a;
background-image:http://i62.servimg.com/u/f62/14/82/60/83/extrem10.jpg ;

background-repeat: repeat;
margin-top:150px;
background-attachment: fixed;
font-family: Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif;
font-size: 75%; /* This sets the default font size to be equivalent to 14px */
margin: 0px 0px 0px 0px;
padding: 0px;
border-color: #862121;
border-width: 0px 0px 0px 0px;
border-style: solid;
}
Refers to font size background.

When employed it restricts what can be done via the alternative.




To sum up then.
Just try to conceive of the theme, as merely a template on which to develop & build.
I shall not vote.
If you look the story so looks like.
Votes 3 > 1 in favour of change.
At best 50/50 on views posted.
No-one will have a greater say.
ie. Length of membership - # of posts etc.

Hey it is pretty cool just find the starship a bit too busy and distracting.Maybe more of a planet and void of space background I know it's a poll but here some feedback ...
some newskat ' posted in another forum recently :
Earth's water may have been imported from the far reaches of the solar system
http://arstechnica.com/science/news/2011/10/earths-water-may-have-been-imported-from-the-far-reaches-of-the-solar-system.ars

so maybe some dark less busy space the earth of course light and planets may be apropo with the hydro cooling theme of the forum.

Hi smile
When in demo mode it is not possible to make further changes.
As soon as one enters the Admin panel.
You are in default.
So what you see now.
If you click on thumbnail it gives a better idea though. Wink

I could make it this formats background.
But as it is no longer transparent.
Not sure that would help.

Hi smile
See here.
Obviously blue font doesn't help.
Would be different color here.
But the overall picture might.

Link removed:

Screen shot:-



N.B. Background remains static while forum "floats" over the top.

Yes, that would look good with a different font for the text.

Hi smile
Seen those via different site.
http://hubblesite.org/gallery/wallpaper/
Most are too busy.
Those that aren't.
Difficult to tell what it is when used as background.

Hi smile
Maybe OK.
Probably best to limit to two colors.



Is simpler.

The thing to remember is it not only has to work on homepage.
But all pages.

Hi smile
But it shows the diversity one could have.
Once you decide on keeping current or changing to SW.
If SW is loaded you can tweak from there.
Changing font size/color to overcome any visibility problems.

Hi smile
Proving I am senile.
You need Founder access to change skin.
I could take this on (temporary).
Make changes to simplify administration.
Then if & when some one else shows interest.
Hand over to them.
In order to do this.
We would need to do the following.




The OP/Poll was about breathing new life into the forum.
Hopefully attract new blood.

Alternative is to stay things are.
This is not a problem.
Just trying enhance prospects.
