Long Overdue Forum Updates

Postby marr0w » Tue May 28, 2019 11:42 pm

If it's not blindingly obvious by now, I updated the forum's theme finally and did away with that super bright theme we used to have. I admit, the main reason we've kept it so long was simply that I didn't want to dedicate the time to fixing it. It took me about three hours to dig through everything and reeducate myself enough to get things looking like they do now. If for some reason you're not seeing the new layout first try ctrl+F5 on Windows systems and do a full refresh of the page. If that does nothing you may have somehow overwritten the theme by selecting one of the older ones. If that's the case - congratulations!! You're not supposed to be able to do this!

Your reward is a one way trip down into the BLACK HOOOOLE!!!!

It makes me really happy that you're still putting effort into the forum marr0w, thank you!
I love the inverted dark design, it looks so much more fitting
The only issue I can see is that the smilies now have white borders but I'm guessing that's a phpBB issue, other than that it looks amazing!!

I was a fan of the previous color scheme. It was very reminiscent of the scraps of paper we have to fill out with our greatest fears. That being said, the new one is very fitting as well. Good work! 8-)

Hah! That was actually why I originally picked it! I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought that! I could try to mix and match it a little better to preserve that paper look (these comments are supposed to be stapled pieces of lined paper and the stuff at the bottom where sticky notes for example) but the white paper was a bit too bright against the darker background. (That and fixing font colors across light and dark backgrounds is always a challenge.) Maybe a gray or something...?

The other reason I went with the style of changes to this inverted style was the background. I really like having the Nightmare board, but I don't want to leave up an easily copied page for pirates to steal and bootleg for obvious reasons. This way we get to retain the colors of the board, the board itself, and the negative look to it makes it not only harder to steal but more unique.

Honestly that and I've always been more a fan of darker themes than lighter ones.

I'm tempted to try adding the background I added here to the main wiki, but I worry that might be too busy. Don't be surprised if I do it anyways in a few days just to see how it looks.
