Hello everyone,

I have temporarily taken on the role of redesigning the site to give it a more appealing look that will hopefully be more welcoming to newcomers and current members alike. I think we can all agree that the current look is a bit on the overwhelming side, especially with the background. I will leave the colour scheme of the site as it is: Ocean blue. I think that sits really well with everything else. I might invest some time into recreating some of the material so we can use them during special times of the year such as summer, spring, autumn, winter, halloween, easter, christmas, new years, and so on.

Below is the order in which I will work on stuff.

1: Navigation buttons. [Done]
2: Forum icons.
3: Affiliate icons.
4: Site banner.
5: Site background.
6: Recreating different sets for special events.
-6i: Seasons (autumn, spring, summer, winter)
-6ii: Events (halloween, easter, christmas, new years)

I will update these as I complete them. In the meantime, I need ideas on the banner and background. What would you like in the banner/background? Feel free to say whatever you want. (I will not be posting samples)

Also, if you experience any problems with the banner, buttons, icons or any other image, please let me know. Thanks in advance!

Will the Inbox icon change in appearance when we have an unread message?

Here's an idea Biorn, you could use an image of the letterbox from Paper Mario as the Inbox icon. Very Happy

The inbox icon is similar to the previous. Once you receive a PM it will glow yellow.

I actually had the idea of using the letterbox from Paper Mario, but couldn't find a clean enough copy to use. Sad

I realize the improvements are far from over but I must say the new icons are ravishing.

As for the background, simplicity might work better than another image (especially considering the varying screen sizes of users). A single tone color that matches the blue or a slightly fancier patterned color would be my personal choice.

I'm glad to hear you liked the icons.

I agree with you on simplicity for the background. I didn't think the board would stretch on different screen sized displays because I always use the same screen dimension. I guess I was wrong.

I'll let Zack create our classic background available from March 16th-April 16th "except easter week" which will be in celebration of us reaching a new year anniversary of our website, but I'd love it if you create the season backgrounds and holiday backgrounds and everything else you listed. Wink

Sorry for the delay. I've been very busy with work and other stuff getting in the way. I was hoping to take care of the small stuff before I move onto the bigger stuff. I'll see how it goes. Will start producing something tomorrow.

No worries, Rukia.

Looks like I have to fix the ads as well. The current images are really oversized. Sad
