Revamping the messageboard


Hello!

The messageboard hasn't been fiddled with for - ooh, months now.

We're thinking about maybe applying a new design to it, as below:

Topics page example

Comments page example

Would this revamp be nasty and wrong? Shall we leave the messageboard in peace?

Or should we do something... else?

I like the style, but the writing is too small for my poor, aged eyes...

I'm with Kitty Fire on this one! Good design, just small, small text, too small.

Yes, teeny writing is for teeny eyes like what a spider has. Not for human eyes.

WELCOME, KITTY FIRE!!!!!!

Just noticed that the chatbox has been extended slightly biggrin.gif

Unfortunately, just a very brief visit, I know, I know, I need to get back to some people, however, we had workmen round yesterday to refit the bathroom. Which starts out by tearing out the old bathroom. We now have a drafty room, with a toilet bowl and a bucket. The bucket is our flush. That's all. No bath, no sink, no nothing.

So, bit busy, but still around... (You'll be able to smell me...)

Black? Black? But I like colours!

Perhaps a board where we can change the colour?

To be honest it kind of looks like every other board on proboards or freeboards or whatever it's called. Plus I'm not feeling the black. COLOURRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!

But I'll keep coming here whatever happens so it's all gravy. :)

I quite like it as it is. There are loads of other boards that look like the black one, whereas right now we have our own unique purpleypink colour scheme.

I'm not sold on the all black either. Something that made me want to post here in the first place was how colorful and well thought out design-wise the board seemed to be compared to most other run-of-the-mill ones I've traversed that this new black one resembles (why this was a criteria required for my communicating for others is a mystery to me to this day).

I love it, but I love changes for the sake of it, so...

What about dark purple instead of black?

As long as the messageboard works in exactly the same way and all you are changing is the colour/font etc then I am fine with it. If I have to click in different places I WILL freak out... just sayin'

I like the new idea. The black looks all sleek and nice. I love how it is now, but I vote for change! Evolution and all that jazz :)

I like this system of asking first.

If we *do* end up having a fiddle, we'll be sure to give advance notice and get some feedback. We will keep things colourful, though perhaps neater and slicker - that would be the main aim of a redesign.

And yes, how it works will not be changed, nor where things are. Just the lookyness of it.

:)

I like the look, it's really elegant. Could we have the option of switching between two designs or would that kill the servers?

I don't want to sound like a demanding prat, but I think that a pretty grungey colourful flower vector thingum at the top and maybe on the sides would liven up the black design. Just a thought, mind.

Out of interest, it's a little scrappy, but how would you feel about something like this?

(if the writing is teeny-tiny, that's just my machine)

That's better! I would suggest more consistency between font colours, but otherwise that's pretty good.
