New theme
« on: January 09, 2011, 06:36:59 PM »
Hey guys, just a short-and-sweet news post to let you all know that, no, your nerd-spectacles aren't fogged up, the forum theme really has changed. This is to reflect the new(ish) design on the main page.

However, we're also aware that many of you nerds are terrified of change, so if you "prefer the old one", the option is still there to switch back. However, we did automatically switch you all over to the new one just to rage you.

All praise goes to Thomas for coding the theme and RavenGT for the design principles.

Burd!

The new theme looks great, the only problem I can think of is that I can't really read any messages, the text's too light and too small. But then again I have a few learning disorders, including Dyslexiaids. But still, nice work Raven and Thomas!
/e: Switched back to the old theme :sigh:, the new theme looks really better then the old one.

But the point of the new theme is to enrage as many nerds as humanly possible?

I do agree that the text is very gray, hard to see. Black is superior in every way, textually and socially.

To enlarge the text, press CTRL + MOUSEWHEELDOWN.

The new theme is pretty spiffy, I won't be using it though because the banner takes up loads of screen space.

Yeah that, or just change the size in the stylesheet so it's consisted for every single page on the boards.
