Ikaruga theme. You can switch between black on white, and white on black! Also future mouse theme looks shitty. please go with something that at least looks good.

cyan stop gaying up my thread



Here's an idea of what the layout would look like. I can't guarentee you everything will work exactly as planned until I get FTP access from Arc or whoever has that, but by all logic, if the forum layout works like I think it does, it should look like that.

The header image there is 900px, but there's ton of wasted space on my monitor. I'm going to see what I can do about just completing the back end of Bronto and curving his tail around, so that the image has no discernable "end." I also want to add a pterodactyl up there up but can't draw pterodactii.

The text colors would obviously be changed to something more visible, probably brown.

For the thread icons, I'm using the dinorun dinos. I was thinking maybe Frocto could send me better scans of his T-Rex sketches and I could make the sleeping dino as the inactive thread icon, and the stomping one as the new post icon.

Next up is sometime this weekend. I don't know about Saturday because I'm going to see Gwar's halloween show, maybe Sunday. WE'LL SEE.

I like it, except for the tree banner thingy under the main logo.  I think a simpler design that doesn't clash with the background could work.  The blue sky looks really out of place.

I think the choice of white as a color for the Home/Search/Login text directly under the banner is a bad one when the sky is light blue. Blends right in.

So you're saying we need a volcano...

And yeah, I'll see about blending the two together at some point today.

[17:01] Lee-Ham: but yeah, like whenever I drew a dinosaur picture as a kid
[17:01] Lee-Ham: I always made sure to have at least one volcano in the background
[17:02] Lee-Ham: so you could tell it was dinosaur times

this is fucking GOSPEL

also, I tried setting up my scanner today, but it was being a cunt, so I'm going to use a different scanner, Kabbage. You will have to wait a few days for those pictures!

I like the new header image because now I'm not forced to scroll left and right on my android phone when surfing the site.

you're killing me here

I'll see if that can be changed. If it can, yeah, I'll be sure to match it up with whatever the background of the tool bar ends up being.

If it comes down to sprawling majesty verses usability on iPones, Max...  :shrug:

Then again, I'm not sure how many folks around here do that. I know Det sometimes posts from his phone. Maybe it's more than I think?

Gonna try changing the blue sky to a red/orange sunset color and having it flow into the header. Not sure if it'll look any good, but I won't really be able to mess around with it until after work.

Some changes:



Changed the layout to flow a bit better. Made the color scheme more dusky.

I'll clean up the artifacts on the trees if folks like it, and again, I'll get Bronto's backside to come to an end if there's a finished product.

OK. That is pretty sexy Kabbage.

I feel like maybe we should explore other options before settling on that brontoforums theme.

If for no other reason than I want to see more of your arts. :wuv:

Can it please be left so half the banner just says "I'll make some sort of repeating mountain pattern for this part"?

I like how the look of mild interest at the erupting volcano on the face of the Brontoforumus. I also like how the current Bronotoforumus seems vaguely curious as to why someone wrote his name on his back.
