New theme
« on: October 25, 2009, 12:17:40 AM »

Starting in the next couple of days, I'm going to be drawing up mockups for new forum themes/community identities and posting them for reactions. We've got Bronto as a placeholder until I start getting these out the door, likely beginning Tuesday, then I'll get a voting box up in this bitch and we can get to some sort of consensus.

UNTIL THEN:

For a heartstopping second, I thought we'd somehow been trolled by Terra.

Did everyone else forget that these boards started as the Brontoforums?

My vote is for that to make a come-back, unless of course we could have... OBLIVITRON!

Original Resistance forums were blue, when Pyoko officially died, the WFE inherited pink, but B.R.O.N.T.O is always green.

Oh, good. I was going to make a Greasemonkey script that made these forums look good, but this idea is better.

Alright, first theme:



Here's an idea of what the layout would look like if I wanted to go through the painstaking process of getting it all right before knowing if folks actually liked it.

The color options would all be neons, and it would switch whatever the primary color was (default would be pink) - I'll see what I can do about making different header colors for different color choices. I don't know if this is possible just yet.

Icons would be remade to match the style, though I'm not really sure what I'd replace the "new post" box-faces with. Probably a mouse sleeping and a mouse flying with a rainbow behind it, pixelized if I can make it work.


On all of these, tell me what you like and what you don't like. Like the name or theme but hate the look? Let me know and I can mix and match once I'm finished posting ideas. Everything can be easily tweaked, too, so don't be afraid to nitpick like motherfuckers.

Next up is a new Brontoforumus (Thursday? Probably?) Then a handful of others over the weekend.

I like the menubar area and nothing else. Well, the idea of FUTUREMOUSE owns.

Yeah, let's sort of steer clear of crazy, eye-searing annoying designs.

Yeah, I like the look of this thing:



I suppose less solids down there and more repeating shapes.

For the record, I hate wasted space. I like everything small and relatively close without being cramped. You may want to take my future criticisms against empty space with a bit of salt.

I'd also like if we moved away from a color chooser (which is this theme specific) and toward one style being one way, another style being another way, etc., but if you're looking to rebrand WFE entirely I guess a color switcher makes some sense.

I kind of like it, though I can understand how someone would think it's eye searing. But man, sign me up for some Future Mouse.

Less eye-searing color

Was shooting for "simple as hell", but there definitely a ton of black on this thing. Noted.
