FORUM UPGRADE

Post by Ringo » Wed Feb 08, 2012 10:42 pm

Hi ,

we have sucessfully upgraded the forum a bit ... i hope u all like the new style

the style isnt finished yet , but the acid and the subsilver kindoff was a little outdated , but so was the forum itself ..

- this week alot of changes maybe noticeable since we kindoff merged in a hurry :)

currently active stuff :

- load time of forum ( mainly gfx wise)
- western font
- font colors
- icons , missing or not completed yet

for people hitting a bug or something not working .. post it in this topic please :)

Thanks for the effort (bot of you - Ring & Huche)! Looking still a bit unusual, but definitely better than it was before. :)

Zivs - Nice catch on removing the 2 spam posts. I think the new user captcha is working ok now from what I am seeing. I try to register a dummy account and see how it goes....

Hmm... I think Huche needs to rethink the icons :roll: lol

Seriously, working on that right now. The current ones look ok on their own, but are too messy in mass and the "new" is not obvious enough from "old" threads...v2 should be better :wink:

Awesome! Nice job gentlemen! Great work!

Huche, I might suggest a little more contrast or glow for 'new' items. Would help my poor eyes a bit, but otherwise I likey!!!

Gonna have to alter my siggie now to fit the theme.

But it looks similar to Huche's avatar! You see - there is monocle, mustache and a fancy hat! :mrgreen:

@Huche - Contrast = Much better. Well done. I'm wondering how you can see any of these browns and reds ;-)

One other nitpick, the text at the top [Logout, 3 new messages, FAQ, etc] that row... might need to be a little darker. At my resolutions they are placed on the parchment background in a region that is starting to fade and they are a little difficult to catch. That's probably a .css thing. Ringo maybe? In general my blind eyes (hence "Ciego") need as much contrast as possible in text. Might I suggest the same color as the "Last visit was:" text just below the breadcrumbs?

I love it though, looks great overall! Now Ringo can get back to mapping :-P pssst... Jailbreak...

lol pedo,

excellent remarks there .. yes it all has to do with CSS

i would love to get back to mapping!.. however i have this list which is in the way :P

so a brief status :

- Forum upgrade to v 3.010 = done
- Forum style upgrade = partial.( believe me huche knows best)
but other people can fix this aswell ( zivs,pedo,biteme) i can setup a webserver for people to test the layout if interested :)
- scanner : people nowdays just dont get dos .. so i need to make it easier infact it is functional .. but im too busy to write manuals

we also need some more people on the servers .. i havnt been around lately ( gee i wonder ) so i propose shootouts in weekends!
