The Forum needs to be uppdated!
« on: March 19, 2012, 12:35:24 PM »
I just hate the dull gray color that is on the forum when you log in. It must be possible to change it to a more modern and fresher look, which is a bit brighter. Is it just me who dont like the colors or do you agree with me?

I'll see what can be done.  I wouldn't mind a color change.  Thoughts, gang?

I like the current color scheme.  Very easy to read, and no garish color to ruin my pre-coffee morning browsing!   

However, a change would not drive me away.

As long it is not too extreme I would like to see some more colors.

I don't mind the current scheme but wouldn't be closed to a change

The current scheme doesn't bother me, but as long as a color scheme change doesn't make it more difficult to read, I'm cool with what ever changes happen.

I don't even know what the site's color scheme is. I'm visually impaired and it hurts to try to read anything on a blindingly bright white background.
So I found an add-on for Firefox called NoSquint that allows me to change the background and text colors of a website.

If memory serves we picked this one due its sci fi type look. we tried other available but they all came out too garish or way off for feel of wargames.

Grinder, click PROFILE then when that opens on the left hand side select  LOOK and LAYOUT

The very first item is theme, click CHANGE to the right of it and it will bring you to a page with a selection of themes.  However the only ones that work are the Administrator Default which is Dirge and the Forum Default at the top which is a blue/silver/white scheme.

If someone could give me administrator access again,  I could create a few themes and have them available in that area as options for people.
