hay guyz

Unread postby pd Rydia » Thu Apr 14, 2005 1:47 am

So I'm thinking about redoing the RPGWW website.

Which means I could totally redo the colors.

Which means the board could get a matching make-over, if'n y'all wanted.

Whatcha think? <p>

You know, FD, that's exactly what I said when Dia first suggested it in chat. "Oh, she just misses the color scheme we had on April Fool's Day."

Oh, and here's my suggestion as I made it in chat: we could have all the different forum subsets in a different color scheme - RP forums one color, Spam and Discussion another, etc. <p>__-__-__-__-__-__

Black and red = no.

Uniformity = yes.

Spleen has yet to expand on what he meant by "subtle differences" between the subforums.

And why the heck was this post moved to the spam forum in the first place?


[edit] Black and red = no in the April Fool's/DP sense. I mean, if someone can show how it can look good... o_o <p>

Okay. My opinion? ezBoard should implement CSS. That way, everything will be easier to change around. But it doesn't, because they're backwards troglodytes. <p>-----

We can use CSS. Due to being Gold and all. We do, to a very limited degree. I was planning to exploit it a great deal more on both the board and website if the colors were going to be changed around.

Also, the corn bullets were done with CSS.


I don't mind pink, so long as it's not pastel. I'm not sure if our board hasn't seen enough blues to last a while. <p>

That's why I said delicate shades of pink and blue.

I think we should keep the blue. I, for one, have come to associate the board with shades of blue, and psychologists have found that blue (and in particular Robin's Egg Blue) has a very calming and uplifting effect on a person's mood.

Ah, so that's why we get posts about hugging kittens all the time!

Also, colored text on a black background has been shown to produce less eyestrain than black text on a non-black background on a monitor. <p>-----

Are you sure? Cause all those websites with black backgrounds and bright letters really cause my eyes to sting after a while.

In other news: "Using Blue: A deep royal blue or azure conveys richness and perhaps even a touch of superiority. Navy blue is almost black and is a bit warmer than lighter blues. Combine a light and dark blue to convey trust and truthfulness — banker's colors. Although blue is a year-round color, pastel blues, especially along with pinks and pale yellows suggest Springtime while deep blue is a colder weather color. Create a conservative but sophisticated look with subtle contrast by combining light and dark shades of blue."

From http://desktoppub.about.com/cs/colorsel ... p/blue.htm <p>

I have to agree somewhat with Gus on the light letters/dark backgrounds thing. And I also like the current color scheme, though I'll probably like whatever ends up getting chosen anyway. :D <p>

I prefer more black or darker blue, perhaps. Anything but white, to be honest. Since white BURNS MY EYES. ;_; But since red is kind of harsh looking on Black...
