Anyone remember all those years ago when we were first adopting this forum and changing the color scheme every 5 minutes.

I'm not personally fond of the shades of blue we've got at the moment but this project is still in the hands of our I.T.. Once the bugs have been worked out rest assured I'll be having a chat with him and we'll sort out a more appropiate color scheme.

give us some thime though...

It's looking good though, I must say.

just please god no light fonts on dark backgrounds!!!!!

dude...

studies show that white sans serif font on black is one of the easiest things to read on a computer monitor. With yellow sans serif on black scoring marginally higher and the best being black on yellow cream. (opposite).

for print it's black on white with a serif font all the way for best legibility.

the worst? It is Red on Blue. Pretty much completely illegible, as well as it's opposite. followed closely by pretty much any other combination of secondary colours or mixes of primary colours.

Both of those sound painful. :eek:

Personally, I liked the Old sceme better. This has too much of a Dragon's list feel to it.

I would however like to see a huge assortment of Smilies.

My two cent's...

There are quite a few other boards on VB3 using this colour scheme.

Give us back a little yellow.

It's so.............Game of Death :D

Greetings,

It is nice to be back at the forum. I have been away so long that my hands have been shaking from withdrawal.

The colour scheme will take some geting used to. The yellow was nice on the eyes.

The only thing I do not like is where you put the replies listing--Holy Panavision Batman!!! It is so far over to the right that I have to turn my head and that hurts. Hurts real bad. Please bring it back over. I'm in pain.

well gene, i also noticed that the private messages folder is better organized, and actually gives u a heads up about when your box is full. perhaps more people will finally start clearing out their boxes when they're full and not let them collect like the trash around their desks :p that way one doesnt type a message just to get a failure to send.

oh, and any thread replies are actually shown in the email (like in russbo). that's convenient. let's you know whether or not to waste your time with a trivial reply ;)

Good news! The yellow is on it's way back. Design Sifu has located out old style sheet. We just need to make a few tweaks to adapt to the new features, so it'll be yellow again soon. Yellow like the Yellow River. Yellow like Yellow Fever. Yellow like Game of Death (http://store.martialartsmart.net/992003.html).
This is where my yellow analogy stops...

Hey I like the new format here. The color scheme though, i would have to say, it needs some personality.

I have often wondered what WOULD be the right color scheme for a Martial Arts Forum. I mean i was getting kind of used to the old format,,but you know,,i wouldnt mind seeing a change in color,,i just have no idea what those colors would be. (guess im not as great a color scheme decorator as say "the queer eye for the straight guy hosts :eek: )

You guys could solicit their help maybe? :p


hehehe PEACE,,TWS

It was the other admin dude, Design Sifu. But I fully support his move, especially after the Game of Death comment.

Mat - still in Japan? Im a bit closer to you now, in Sydney and ummm... shacked up with Tae Li. Miss my Sifu though and havent found a school im happy with here yet.

Mr Punch
02-26-2005, 04:29 AM
THE Tae Li who used to come on the forum?! Did her sister ever come over here? She asked me to look out for her then never got back in touch... could it be that she didn't trust me...?! :D

A genuine KFM romance??? Spill the beans!

What are you training these days?

Still Moslem?

Mr Punch
02-26-2005, 04:30 AM
And yeah, I know the last one's a weird question but people do change... I mean you weren't born a Moslem were you?! ;)

dang - were in trouble now (at least i am :p) Thanks very much RTB but you should know by now i eat plenty :mad:

I am not sure if this is the correct place to ask, but - is there going to be a multi-quote button? I have noticed on some other VB forums they have the ability to scroll down the whole thread, and press quote on however many folks you like, then when you click reply at the bottom, it lists them all so you can reply one by one. I found it incredibly useful, especially if there were some really long and intense thread "discussions" going on ;)
