Title: A new flavor
Post by: Walter on August 25, 2003, 04:19:51 AM
The BBS' colors were starting to grate on my nerves a little.  It looked like Bedrock, as Griffith told me once.  I whipped up this color scheme a few months ago, but never bothered to implement it until now.

Comments?

Nifty.  Change is good.  Default is bad.  ;D


Is the blue in the posting page gonna get done later, or is it gonna stay in the old format?
Is (http://www.skullknight.net/yabbse/YaBBImages/online.gif) this graphic new?

Didn't think about it till you brought it up. Fixed.

If you can tell where the image came from, I'll award you with 10 posts to your postcount.

(Did it really need explaining?)

It looks pretty strange in Mozilla but there's not much that can be done about that.

i'm not sure what happened but it sometimes acts weird under Mozilla.  It was fine the first time i saw it, but the colors tend to screw up every now and then.

Ok, let me give this a shot. The background image for the menu is a reference to the lost chapter 83; it's the double helix that connects to Idea from below. And the other image is from the place of the Beherit apostle, where you can see a cross with at its base a double helix in the form of a spinal cord and skull that spirals around a pillar.

By the way, I like the new color scheme. :)

It's great.

I'm so glad you decided to change to the old colour scheme to this one, and I'm honoured you're using the Griffith banner I made ;D Skullknight's BBS has never looked so great!! You done good, Walter!

How many changes has the BBS gone through now? I've seen 2... but I guess there are a lot more?

You win!  The theme of the new color scheme is "The Nexus".  It will make much more sense once Im completely finished with all the visual and functional changes here.

This is the third... I think?  It's been a little over 2 years since this BBS opened. So really, we don't fluctuate in color that often.

I like the new color scheme. It's real easy on the eyes. And the new custom graphics are kickass.

That was Uriel's work, not mine.

So far only 2 complaints.  I think thats the most positive feedback Ive ever gotten on a color scheme. It's been pretty much 50/50 before.
Title: Re:A new flavor
Post by: Locke on August 25, 2003, 07:28:21 PM
Yea, but this setup has a few new features, and probley a few unfound new features.  That and the fact that its really easy on the eyes.

Nice work Walter, it's a great change of pace.  I especially like the way individual posts are on contrasting backgrounds, it'll help me find messages when I need them.  8)

eh, it's okay. the purple and gray are a little too dark, otherwise it's better. I don't like that it's now "The Nexus" though. how about "Doctor Teddie's Funtime Adventure Board 700"?

Post by: Genn21 on August 26, 2003, 03:39:09 AM
I couple nudie dancer gifs certainly would'nt hurt. Man it does look more decent. The blue was kinda melodramatic after a while. and got tireing on the eyes. This blackish gloomy whatever the hell look is kinda more sweet. I dont know how ,but just a bit. Like a bit of sugar in your tea. I still think walt should consider the nudie dancer GIF's. ( or a porn page if he has the love )
