  • I liked Redsy the most but its forum display was a little too 'fat' for my tastes. I switched back to the default since it's the most innocuous of them all. :)

  • What is this fluffy bunny colors that has overtaken my Evul Laptop Command Center of Doooom™?

    What manner of villainy has the power of the Hat imposed?

  • This here ain't one of the ones I had to tweek the hardest.  ISTR a few days burned adjusting this and that, mostly minimizing pagetop space, a little color-fiddling -I think I added all the gold, because this was meant as sky theme, not springtime- and I think I made the leaf read/unread icons for the root.

    I don't know how anyone can like Redsy - I can't get to a single doggon bossman control there, don't have anyway to set to another theme from it - and can't even get at the admin panel to mod the POS so it works, minimally.  You kids and your phones get off my yard!

  • Well, the lack of color and underline for links in Ostara sorta blows, and I'd deem the black of the quote backgrounds and sketchy legibility worse - but it's truly a lovely theme to spend the day in, and no other problems I've found.

  • -Say, would anyone care to stump for a regular change of default to any other theme?  Anything but Redsy might be doable -retaining my veto, but I'll listen about any other- and would we be happy in SMAC or Firaxis, the most thematically appropriate, or are they both too trapped-in-the-90s?

    -Like, Curve here, the traditional default most of us are in, has been my home for over six years, and like any good webs nerd, I don't much care for change - but I expect if I was a lurker, first sight of this near-generic SMF look would not impress favorably...

  • I'm indifferent. I'm cruising with Curve regardless of what the default ends up being, in all likelihood.

    Is Curve the SMF default? It's a pretty good default if so. I didn't get an impression of "this is the basic SMF theme" when I first visited AC2.

    Obvious caveat that I tend to avoid SMF sites in general, so I wouldn't be intimately aware of the basics anyways.

  • This is actually useful and exactly the more important aspect of what I was asking- a nets veteran didn't get that 'lame site' stank off the look.

    This is the SMF default as of 2010 - sorta.  I've modded it to minimize top space -we're the anti-CFC that way- for maximum browsing efficiency and ease of use.  A flashy banner logo is probably carrying all the water a tight layout isn't, for first impression.  I no longer remember nearly all the differences from the original look...

    I worry it looks generic and like we're half-butt precisely because I love it just the way it is after so many years my comfy home, and know I've no perspective...

    Now, I fuzzily and vaguely recall when I first bothered to take a peek at sisko's little side-project forum in 2010 - and there was a faint Lame ping for me, absent changes I've put in since - mostly I saw he empty of it...
