many thx!

2024 CDT -- lag while trying to change pages...but maybe someone is 'tweaking'? :o

mastifflover September 21st, 2010 08:29 PM

Marko there is too much white if you toned the white with a little of the taupe it would reduce the brightness. But I think what it really needs also is a bit of pop lile a hit of orange. Also the blue box has got to go. But I like the taupe it just needs tweaking. But it is looking good and thanks for asking for our input. Even though you know we would give it anyhow

Well I'm sure glad lots of members feel the same way I do. :D

I logged on earlier and read 4 pages of the tjt to get caught up and then had to log off cuz my eyes were so crossed. :frustrated:

Marko, if it's not possible to change the two shades of brown bars to blue/green then would we be able to go back to the previous colours in the forum? :o

marko September 21st, 2010 11:33 PM

So members - tell us how you really feel :D

Ok, let me have a talk with the designer dude....this colour design took a quite a few hours to do. When we first saw it, Both Dave and i thought it looked great :shrug:
At the very least in the short term we can change the main text colour...

Thx for the comments!
Marko

So, Marko, are you sorry now that you asked for our thoughts? :D

If you and Dave were like some of us that read and post here [SIZE="1"](for a lot longer than I care to admit) [/SIZE] then you'd see how hard it is on the eyes. :o

And, also the type size seems to be smaller than before or else my age is really showing. :laughing:

I'm sorry you and Dave already spent so much time on this but we really do appreciate how hard you try to please us. :grouphug:

mastifflover September 22nd, 2010 07:06 AM

I agree us old folks need a larger font. I still like the brown it is the bright white background that is so hard on our eyes Good thing we are not opinionated.

ancientgirl September 22nd, 2010 07:27 AM

Oh wow, I just opened the site this morning and I love the colors!

Winston September 22nd, 2010 08:06 AM

You know I like the color scheme but I am tending to think its a tad hard on the eyes for some reason?? I am sure you and Dave will come up with something!

Great work so far Marko!

[/QUOTE]

That is my only concern , the text colour and also , it seems smaller ? So makes it hard to read.

But I don't have a problem with the brown and the beige background.

bendyfoot September 22nd, 2010 09:48 AM

I agree...I love the colour scheme but find the text a teeny bit hard to read...it does seem smaller

Frenchy September 22nd, 2010 09:54 AM

TeriM mentioned in the TJT how to make the writing bigger ... I have mozilla and went to the "view" option on top , clicked on it and zoomed in. I's much better now :thumbs up

Masha September 22nd, 2010 10:31 AM

I love the new color scheme. it looks very modern and classy. love it :)

Longblades September 22nd, 2010 12:11 PM

Are some of us seeing different colour schemes? In the main forum my backgrounds are light brown. I like the background but the brown type is hard to read.

It's only here, in my REPLY TO THREAD box, that I see a white background, surrounded by a grey box. With black type.

Masha September 22nd, 2010 12:18 PM

my background is pale grey/cream tone with brown font... i fid it very easy on the eyes :shrug:

14+kitties September 22nd, 2010 12:25 PM

I'm just finding the wording is smaller. But that is easily fixed. I just have to remember where. :D

That's the way I see it too. :)

I could get used to the brown bars but still find the blue/green a much more calming/relaxing combo. :cloud9:

But definitely need to do something to improve the text. :fingerscr

rainbow September 22nd, 2010 01:50 PM

The biggest complainer is back again. :D

If we keep the brown can we just get rid of the green bar at the top? The blue one is fine as it ties in with the Post Reply, Edit and Quote buttons but the green bar just doesn't seem to fit in to me. :shrug:

Then if the text was changed to dark blue that would be even better. :thumbs up

I'll go away now. :D

hazelrunpack September 22nd, 2010 05:25 PM

But I [I]like [/I]the green bar!!! I wish the bars were all green and blue...the dark brown is okay, but the mauve seems to be what's botherin' hazel's eyes... :o

Longblades September 22nd, 2010 05:41 PM

[COLOR="Plum"][B][SIZE="3"][SIZE="5"]Mauve[/SIZE][/SIZE][/B]?[/COLOR] What do you see in [COLOR="plum"][B]mauve[/B]?[/COLOR] I might also call this lavendar or lilac. On the colour font choice it's called plum. I know monitors differ, but mauve?

aslan September 22nd, 2010 05:58 PM

[COLOR="Sienna"][B]Still kinda like this one the best tho...and gotta say i agree with the liking the green and blue...the browns just kinda look washed out[/B][/COLOR]

LOL Okay, okay....so it's really not a purply-brown enough to qualify for a true mauve, but I'm referring to the mid-tone, mid-contrast tan/brown. I'm just trying to distinguish it somehow from the true brown. :p

I kinda like the lavender, too. :D

rainbow September 22nd, 2010 09:14 PM

Yikes ......you guys are really confusing Marko now. :D

Yes, I would prefer the blue/green theme much better but it seemed like I was out voted by other members ....so since I'm an easy person to get along with I could adapt to the brown but would really like the suggestions I made to go along with it if we did have to keep the brown theme. :fingerscr

And, Hazel. you need new glasses if you see mauve. :laughing:

hazelrunpack September 22nd, 2010 09:38 PM

I'd like green and blue bars...lavender...maybe even orange...or mauve. :p Just not so much mid-tone brown. :o

marko September 23rd, 2010 07:15 AM

Hi members,

Since there's so many differing opinions here, I'm going to let this sit till the end of this week so more people can give opinions.

Many thanks!
Marko

Marko[/QUOTE]

marko could you atleast increase the font size before then?

Longblades September 23rd, 2010 11:36 AM

If we had only two choices, the old and the new, I prefer the old.

:laughing: I don't blame you Marko .....you definitely need a lot of patience trying to make a bunch of women happy. :D

JennieV September 23rd, 2010 03:21 PM

I also vote green/blue or the old.. I cant seem to be able to stay on pets frmore than a few minutes at a time, which truly sucks... My eyes are not happy at all with the current theme... :2cents:

diandpat September 23rd, 2010 03:31 PM

Ugh...sorry Marko :o but I too prefer the blue/green from the top. The brown hues are not too too bad on my PC but they do not show up well on the Mac and the netbook I can't stay on but for a few minutes.

I bigger default font would be helpful too.
