Input on the layout
« on: February 14, 2006, 08:32:39 AM »

I've had this up a couple of months now, and I kinda like the colors, but I'm partial to blue. If we keep the colors, I could easily adapt graphics for it and such. But what do you think?

The colors are fine, but where have the links to the house cup and the gallery gone?

I guess I think I'd like something else, something a bit more, uh, interesting.  I mean, these colors are fine, but they aren't particularly, well, HPish.  I hate to say that I don't have any really brilliant or detailed ideas, but something with some HP colors (like the house colors) or images would be cool.  Keep in mind, of course, that I know nothing about programming and so have no idea what it would take to do anything. 

Sorry, that's about as productive as I can make my comments.

All things are possible, but not always through Ping. :D

It shouldn't be too hard to HP-ify stuff. Easier than with the other theme, probably. I haven't really looked hard into the details of this theme, which is why I haven't added the links for the house cup and gallery.

These colors are OK, but they're also a lot like every other forum I've seen. I kind of liked the old colors, but these are pretty cool. It'll just take a while to get used to.

I'm also partial to blue, but I agree with Cho that it needs to be more HPish. 

I'm also partial to dark green and silver......

People!  Haven't I taught you anything, yet?  Obviously, red and gold should be the dominant colors on the board.  Sheesh!

Just a quick update--I'm currently backing up the site via Dreamweaver, which will allow me to more easily fiddle with the layout and design and colors and pictures and stuff. Hopefully this will yield some more HP-related layout soon.

I was working on renewing the basic layout while running some boring programs at work, but the boring programs stopped working, so I had to stop working. A terrible state of affairs. Hopefully I can get it sorted out one of these days.

I am working on revamping the theme. This is as far as I've gotten so far, and it might not get much further, but hopefully it's a start.
