Full Version: About the new 'look'

Jutom
Its horrible! Did you not attend the basic class of coloring? Hmm.. maybe you did, but you forgot to take the test. It could be worse, but it sure aint good looking at the moment. It was good enough, but you had to change it. No offense, but forums should be light background and dark text, not the other way around.

Please do something about it, this gives me a headache.
Gore
This is a temporary skin, which is atleast a little bit closer to the colorpatterns used by the actual www.bat.org site. In the long run, we'll use a custom skin for it.

There's no rule that says that forums have to be light background and dark text, just like webpages can be dark backgrounds and light text. The important part is to have a contrast so that the text is easily readable.
Jutom
Yes, but the contrast has to be actually a working one, not something that looks like some colorblinded ADD scriptkiddie thinks is 'cool'.
Favorit
Come on, it's a nicely readable scheme. At least I can read no problem.

Default Invision skin is just boring.
Jutom
It might be boring, but it works.
Favorit
Well, this is gonna work, once we get a custom skin. For now this one will do, and as Gore said, it's at least a bit closer to the color scheme main site uses.
Jutom
Im not doubting that it wouldnt work eventually. Just pointing out that this particular step is not so great.
Gore
On the contrary, I atleast find this much easier to read when there's not a bright white background.
Jutom
Argh.. So can we get 2 different themes then? Or theme per what background / guild your in?
Calmar
This new skin is much better.
Minni
Yeah, shut up Jutom, this is great now =)
Hrolf
I like it too. I think part of the problem is that it was initially very jarring to jump to this rfom the other quickly. It took a little bit to get comfy but now it has grown on me.
Femko
I like the colors :( *bush jutom*
Brurin
You can use the Lo-Fi option for simple light bg dark text.

I hate the current skin.
Nosunrise

But this new skin is way better! :)


A question: is it possible (or acceptable) to rip off this "theme" to our own little bat-pages? If so, how? :)

Just download all the pictures you see here and construct your site using them.

New look rock 'n rolls! :]

The new look is great, but the only thing I dont like so far is the thing on the left side.
Alll that info and avatar and stuff are nice but they make all the replies look very big, even if the poster has written just one line.. looks silly.

Other than that, good job.
