i love it! Nothing better than a good ol' color scheme of red white and black...

but if i could change one thing, i'd make the white like background of the forum (i don't know the technical name) a little darker. maybe towards the grey side? just to make it a little easier on the eyes and then the buttons and text boxes would stand out more, etc.just my opinion.

but i am a fan though... good job on the graphics, nat!


EDIT: much better

I posted this in the other thread, but you said this is where you want us to make suggestions.

Can I make a color change suggestion? The red is beautiful (my favorite color in fact) but it is still too bright and hard to read things because it is so vivid... perhaps you could make it a deep maroon color (I think you had that as an accent of the last site). If you make them a darker color then you can keep the type size smaller like the old site.

Other than that, it feels weird to see the site all "bubbly" (which isn't bad, it's just not what I'm use to) but I think it looks great and can't wait to see the other version when you get it done.

My thoughts exactly. Other than that it's great.

Yeah, the red scares me a little but I agree it was time for a change.

Woohoo!

I can't really claim too much credit for it. Natalie did the top graphics and the actual "skin" for the forum was designed by somebody else. I just edited a few bits of the layout, made a couple of new images and changed some font sizes. All the credit goes to Natalie and vbmode.com.

whooo Red name! :D

i'm like a frickin moderator!!

i've been using OOTV a while too so this was like a punch in the face. Pheebs shares my thoughs, the red is a bit edgy. It's cool though.

oh yeah, and just a suggestion, dunno how useful it might be. Could the 'The Village Churchyard' text go to the middle of the graphic header on top? it's beautiful, just seems a bit empty in the middle...

I also think all the bright red is a little overwhelming, but besides that, it looks good!

lol lets not be petty now... functional suggestions are reasonable, but adam didn't even make the graphic. i think you'll live to see another day if the text on the graphic stays the same ;)

I was told to make the middle blank so that a repeating black bar could stretch to fit any screen resolution.

I love the new top banner, but I'm not the biggest fan of all the red. Still, as long as the site is around, I'm happy.

Definite improvement!! Still wish things were a little better separated and organized by headings colors and fonts.

Uhh so when I originally took the poll I didn't like it as much as the old one. Mostly because of the bright red. But now that a few things are changed around I'd change my vote. I really like it.

Yeah, I was going to ask, did the red get toned down a little? Because at first I thought it was too much, and now it seems perfect. I wasn't sure if I adjusted to it, or if it was changed.

I changed it a few days ago, you're not being subliminally influenced into liking the design, don't worry ;)

I don't like it. Call me old time, but I don't like the change at all. Sorry Adam:sigh:
