A new flavor
« 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 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.

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. :)

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.
