NEW THEME BETA

Post by Kirby » November 28th, 2010, 5:50 am

I don't have much to say about it, so this will be quick.

You're looking at the new theme, Celestial Dawn. It's taken long enough, and although it might not be what you would expect out of eight months time, it should be better than the old theme we previously had. The theme was a few weeks work by Spero78 and I, and is not the original theme ALPHA101 was working on due to a twist of drama I don't believe is necessary to be explained.

There's still a fair few things about it I still need to change/fix, and chances are that if you see something that's broken or looks weird, I know about it already (but it might not be a bad idea to let me know just in case).

Yes, the forum icons will be replaced. The private messaging module looks unsettling but is still functional, and the Spoiler tag needs to be restyled. I will be making necessary changes whenever I have the time for them; school has kept several constraints on my free time.

Please give your opinions on the new chatbox - whether it should be on the top or the bottom of the forum, shorter or longer, do you like it, etc.
If you don't like the new chatbox, you are free to cite alternatives. We won't be going back to Chatango.

Hope it was worth the wait!

I LIKE THAT CHATBOX!!!!!

other than that, I think it is a great work in progress. I think the icons on the left of each forum folder (is that the "spoiler" thing?) should be changed to something more consistent with the theme.

but really, excellent work!

The new forum is damn sexy so yes, it was worth the wait :3

The chatbox is quite neat too. I like that it's at the top rather than at the bottom since I actually notice it when someone writes in it x3
I'd prefer to keep it at the top and maybe a little longer.
Other than that, Good work! :3

Yeah, I'm liking this.
Nothing has moved places so I don't have to learn it either
and the I prefer the chatbox at the top, it looks more 'professional'.

Chat box on top is pretty neat, but my purple writting seems sooooo dark now D: As such, I'll start writting in pink

Also, contact list is still of the old forum's color (blueish-white)

Aside from that, I think it's a good theme, one that will take me a long while to get bored of. Gj Spero!

I like that I can finally use my old font colour again. It makes me absolutely ecstatic.
I do really enjoy that the chat box is at the top, and I like the features the mods have in it. Useful.
Not so fond of the yellow blocks that indicate new posts...I don't personally think it goes. But if no one wants to change it, they work fine.

The yellow blocks will be changed; they're what I meant by 'forum icons' in the first post. They'll probably be icons with music notes in them unless someone has any other ideas.

I realized the timestamps on the chatbox can be inaccurate if you don't refresh the page. So, I'm letting you guys pick:

The highlighted option is the one the chatbox is using now.
