[Approved] [Suggestion] Theme style
« on: June 11, 2013, 12:10:33 AM »
Since there are so many themes available for this forum, i was just going through a bunch, i'm curious if you'd be interested in grabbing one of the free ones with a darker contrast easier on the eyes at night time.  I figured there is some custom coding such as the top left bar and few other things but it's worth asking.  If not, no biggie but i thought you needed to be challenged a little more :P

Hmm... I'll think about this one. :)

I don't want to have multiple templates as that would create performance issues, and feature issues with different feature sets per template. (It's a pain to do upgrades too when you have multiple templates).

For this topic, is the current template good? Is this easy on the eyes? Let me know. I'd like to keep the forum at a universal default for performance reasons.

Putting in my 10cents (or pence here in Blighty!)  I don't like the look at all.  The logo at the top also could do with an overhaul.  However, the looks don't detract from the functionality and purpose.  But, for some reason, I preferred the old look to this - and wasn't that keen on that! 

I am fussy.  Thats my problem.  Its a sickness really.  ;D
Kind regards,
Bradley Porter

Agree. This theme is actually quite ugly.

Whelp, I'm no graphic artist, any suggestions? I could revert back to the original if you'd like. Maybe I'll have multiple templates available for users, who knows haha.

They're down for emergency maintenance, so can't check them out until later.
