Notes about the new forums

Post  VengefulTorture on Sat Jun 18, 2011 3:36 pm

Yo Geist, i thought we could start a list of things to help improve the forums. I know it's new but nonetheless i figure we could start something to help them progress ya dig?

Fixes/Changes
Title length? Remove restrictions (if possible)
Font Color scheme with background. I know this is planning on changing but pay attention to everything, it's easy to miss things that are hard to read.



P.S. i like all the topics!

yeah, theres still quite a bit of work to go. i know the font is hard to see. theres an option when making a post to change your fonts color, but i still haven't figured out how to change the font for the whole forum yet. onc ei figure it out, i'l change it.

From what i can tell, i cant change the Title length restriction, but i did change the font to make things easier to see. this green and red color is just temporary. i'll change it again once we have a more suitable back ground image.

Ive also gone ahead and made you a mod so if you want to, you can start writing up forum rules if you like.

i'm also gonna leave this thread here and sticky'd so that any new members coming in can help shape the look of things around here like a community project.

Ok sounds good. Yeah thank God this is temporary lol. I figure we could get a black middle background with something Monster Hunter-y on the sides. Making the text easy to read but still classy. Whaddya say?

I made a new banner for the site, lemme know what you think! I can add a border around the edge if you'd like too, that is if you want to use it haha. I increased the height of your banner but it's the same length fyi

damn PS forum mods deleted my thread and warned me. forgot that we cant post links to other forums there. i might get banned cause i told the mod to screw off because they were so quick to delete my thread and warn me, but let that one dbag troll his shiz for months(rememeber that?)

i like that. thats actually perfect for a forum banner. i'll throw that up ricky tick.

Is it possible to get "so many new posts since last visit" somewhere? I'm a part of some other free forums (for my clan) and we have that, show's the new posts since you last logged in, it's reallllly nice.

Just an idea! Wink

i like how that pic had a discussion box on it with you saying blah blah blah on it lol.
the only problem i would see with us using that pic as a background is the fact that its overused everywhere. sure its recognizable, but to recognizable you know. i think we need a little something more unique. i like the black transparent box over the pic though, it would make us capable of using nearly any pic we want and make text easy to see. what might be a good idea, sence the forum is called the guild hall, or banner is a guild hall pic, i say theme? maybe. like get a pic of minegard, or dondruma halls? possibly even the loc lac GH(tri).

i was wondering if it had a new messages type deal myself. i'll look into that as well.

Yeah i feel ya. Only thing about the Guild Hall theme is there aren't many HD pics out there with the guild hall (i looked.. none that i could find). Maybe something of the town but a PSP screen shot aint gonna cut it ya know? Idk maybe you'd have more luck. If you find something feel free to send me a link i can work on it, make it more presentable and all.

Ha yeah i thought you'd like that conversation lol

Not sure why, but it wont apply the image correctly. everytime i try and fix it, it keeps f'ing it up. i even changed the to another image because i got so tired of it screwing up, and it wont even display that image. i'll leave this one as is then until i can figure it out.

Right now? not much works with the black and white combo. A solid or similar color background would help. For the meantime try red maybe.

until we can come up with a suitable background that doesn't over power the text, we'll go with this.
i think that transparent black boxing infront of the image might do the trick, but i haven't figured out how to use gimp enough to do that.

oh and about the (x new messages) option for posts, i cant find anything that allows me to do so. what we need to do is come up with a list of concerns/ideas and i can basically check their ADMIN Q&A deal to find all of it.
