NEW: Board Theme

Post by submariner » November 14th, 2009, 12:39 am

I've updated the board theme, with an actual custom banner.

Thoughts? Reactions? Better ideas for a banner? (suggestions and entries welcome!)

UPDATE: Plan B. The new theme lacked contrast, so I've gone with my second choice for a new theme. This one includes better contrast along with a fresh look.

I'm also soliciting submissions for a site logo (post forthcoming)

For what it's worth I can not distinguish between posts I have already read and those that I haven't. The graphics are so similar it's almost impossible to tell the difference. Otherwise, nice improvement.
Let's get back to work! Test. Trace. Isolate.

Agreed... Everything looks too similar

I agree, I've been tinkering on Photoshop and should have a replacement soon.

I've updated the icons. The new set is much easier to discern new topics. Hope this works for everybody!

If you don't see the new icons right away, hit refresh.
