Re: Forum upgrade

Well, Ramses, Im not going to sit here and do cartwheels and pretend that I like the new look, because that's just not how I get down - but I will begrudgingly make this one concession: it does seem that the forums are getting a lot more hits these days. Maybe its from the children? But then, that could be because its summertime......

Re: Forum upgrade

Big thanks to the Big Man!
The new lay-out is... slowly... embedding itself in the neurological recognition paths as a good thing.
I think.

Anyhoos - so glad this site even exists - as it whiles away the tedium at work!

Wow. Man, this site really has changed. Luckily that doesn't mean what's in it, but how it looks. Personally, I think it's somewhat... lighter now. More like Gattaca style - if the old style was more like Star Wars'77 style.

Re: Forum upgrade

I dunno, this style could be loosely associated with Star Wars '77 if you think about it. I mean ... it's white ... and the stormtroopers ... er ... they wore white ...

Ok board ate my post AGAIN saying it had to be at least 10 characters long. It was about 5 flipping paragraphs long, never mind words - this is using quick reply again and yay it wiped the post. Yes I sound p'd off, I was ranting in the job frustation thread

Re: Forum upgrade

I think the site has this retro look about it now. I really actually thought of "A New Hope" when I first saw it. I always thought of the old look as being gritty and tough (in a VERY GOOD way) like Alien or Blade Runner. It had a semi-Naval feel like this was a navy fleet and Ramses really gave the aura of being in a fighter squadron with all the ranks, flights, etc. I thought the old theme rocked!

But change is inevitable, and this is a very good change. I think we should all applaud Ramses for his efforts.

Re: Forum upgrade

Thanks Ramses.

Given the av is now 100, can we have the height of the sig extended to make them flush? Or at least a bit bigger, as opposed to the 3 lines of text at the smallest size?

Re: Forum upgrade

That's not good, what IE are you using? Definatly needs fixing (particularly being IE), but if you want to play now, try FF.
