    Okay dokey peeps - all the colour schemes should now be available within the new community style - they are the ones at the top of the lists.

    Also I'm going to change the default style for guests and new users - if yours changes (don't think it should) and you want to go back to the old style it's 'Ruby Red'

    All this stuff at the side of the page is slightly annoying, though it's something you'd probably get used to.

    How things have changed sice the 2001 blue and white colour scheme with stars instead of avatars.

    I know.

    Wish we could roll back :(

    Change is the enemy of complacency people.

    I think it looks good.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    And for all those happy with their complacency you should feel free to change to the previous style :)

    Skive - If you want Blue and white I could have a pop at doing it if you could find the way it looked from waybackmachine or something similar. Don't think stars will be back but blue and white doesn't sound like a terrible colour scheme... My head still hurts from acidentially looking at the clubbing colours this morning... :grump:

    By the way - at the moment I'm paraphrasing a quote from 1983 on the About Us homepage - anyone got anything they'd like to say about TheSite that we could use there, or save up for the future.

    (Oh and for those really curious about the changes and decisions we've made we'll be posting some project documents and bits of pieces on the blog for the huge redesign to come in the next year or two - changethesite)

    I remember when the boards changed appearance (years ago) and everybody was complaining about how bad and terrible it was. How the world was going to end, but a comparative 5 minutes later, everybody shut up and got on with it.

    Kinda reminds me of all this bollocks with facebook.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I see change and I like :)

    Oh and shut up ya moaning James :razz:

    You know nothing newbie. You come along thinking you know what TheSite's all about, well I got news for you mush, you don't.
    It's not about flashy design, it's about the people, the posters, and what they write and it's about stars like what JsT has. Back then it was good, it was the best.

    Loser.

    No. I remember the stars.

    It wasn't that long I don't think!

    Besides, we are old school so we shouldn't be arguing :p

    Is it me or did the traditional ruby red change too? The top bars of stuff look shiny.
  • JsTJsT TheSite Graduate Posts: 18,265 Incredible Poster
    A lot of the skins have gained it for some reason, it looks good though.

    What can I say, I got drunk and lost my glasses on Friday - so after a weekend of squinting at the boards and having my eyes bleed as I fixed articles I had to do something to make them look a little nicer :p

    Bit delayed but I reckon I can have a go at the skiver colour scheme tomorrow :)

    I havn't forgotten bout this.
    I somehow won post of the week last week and instead of a toy octopus or a wrist band (both of which I already have), would love to see this scheme.

    Cheers Jim. ;)

    Okay dokey man, because you asked so nicely and I am sorry it's taken so long for me to get to it - go select 'Skiver' for your style...

    It's rough, tried a gradient to help with the amount of dark blue at the top, and I'm on holiday till Wednesday so can't change buttons (no ftp access from here).

    But... I reckon it's a pretty nice starting point. Just let me know what you'd change :)
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Oh and if anyone else has any suggestions for other colour schemes, or especially if they want to help out making buttons and icons just let me know here. Can't promise anything'll get done fast, but the wheels will turn eventually :)

    Hmm - can't decide if in a thread the light blue should be the colour for the user rather than the post... mind you that would alter the main navigation pages...
  • JsTJsT TheSite Graduate Posts: 18,265 Incredible Poster
    Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeettttttttttt!
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    And you should now have at the very bottom of the style list something called

    'plain ol' skiver' - a version with expandable width and a stripped down nav bar

    If it's not too much work: Could there be a wide version of Blink 2.0? The listbox problem is solved there, as opposed to the old blink. :)
