I like the new forum colors/graphics. Very slick! What do the rest of you think?

Very Orangey-bluey. :)

I think they're good, but leaning towards busy-looking.

The present cheerful blue is a bit much against the darker colors on the rest of the site, IMO...

Actually, it's getting on my nerves, but that's just the migrane talking. LOL. :)

Denise... you always seem to be around when I tweak the forums... so I guess there's "migrane's a plenty" in your future. :cool:

The background blue is too bright, it really hurts my eyes.

Oooh, that's much better. :)
Looking good, overall.

And the headache is definitely not a byproduct of the color scheme, just made my reaction to it a bit more harsh. :)

There... that's as mild as I'm going with the background... seems to blend well.

By the way.. all these colors from the forums actually come right from Kyle's clothes.. if anyone was wondering.

This is a little better, but not much. What was wrong with the red and black?

Looks good Aristotle; its good to change things up a bit. I like hte chamber oriented scheme from the other thread (thats my fav screenshot so far as well) Nice job with the banner as well!

Carl,

The red and black was a fragmented format... A nice clean logo up top running smoothly into the forum tables looks more pleasing naturally to the eye.

Further, as I stated earlier, these colors come directly from Kyle's clothing... so they have a bit of meaning.. rather than just random colors... hopefully people appreciate subtle meanings behind things.

As I also said, I'll be working on several more designs, then I'll just let the forum pick which one they like best.

The chamber design seems a bit busy to me at the moment, but I will be tweaking those colors tonight... and work on 2 additional designs this weekend.. one being more jedi lightsaber red based as well...

I wouldn't mind the chamber setup one bit, but this color scheme is very appropriate. Good job Aristotle.:)

True, I enjoyed that version as well.

I like it as it is right now. Very slick. :)

Thanks for changing that awful light blue, Aristotle. The scheme is excellent now (dim grey with that dark blue, and that lighter, dusty blue in the background).

I dont like the 'chamber' version though - it's much too cheerful ;)

Please keep Kyle's graffiti as the banner cos it's the best!

I'm inclined to agree with you. ;) If nothing else, it's easy on the eyes, but I think it looks good anyway. 8)

Definitely keep that banner...it's excellent (I've got that wallpaper on my desktop right now. ;) ).

If you mean the "jediknightii.net" bit on the banner, then I agree, I'm not too keen on it myself. The rest is great, though. :)

Yeah, the main graphic is great except for the title. I don't like the font or the zebra-texture thing.

Do I smell a hint of Photoshop Mosaic Tiles Filter? But I agree, comes across like a site pushing the "Rythmic Styles of Nairobi." I'd go slightly more gothic with it, but not too much. Of course, I'm a graphics major (graduating in May, hint hint), and I like to pretend I know what I'm talking about.
