I don't mind the white in the actual forum, though if you want constructive criticism on it here it is: I do think there needs to be more contrast. As I am typing this I see a lot of grey sections, either they need to be darker, or everything that is completely white (the outside edges) should be green.

Also, the white on the homepage is what bugs me. I realize the site is nowhere near finished, but the homepage just looks like it. It looks like it was half done, simply because there is sooo much white. That's ok for the forum, but for the homepage, it just doesn't work. Adding grey for contrast in the text boxes would work nicely, I think.

I really hate the HTML editors that we have. I know that it is nice to have a choice of editors.
But I do not see where any of them have the "quote" button. So I type in the [quote" "/quote] myself.
Some of them do not have spell check squiggles. That is manditory for me since I am such a lousey speller. (mistakes here where intentional.)
When I copy and paste an article all of the editors put way too many spaces between paragraphs. I find it annoying.
I know you have tried to help me with making code columns but with this new site I just can not seem to get it down. It is very frustrating for me.
Some of them will arbitrarily highlight a sentence or paragraph and cut it off when I try and paste additional info or type in some other information.  I have tried them all so many times I can not remember which one does what.
Of course the time out is annoying as well.  Sometimes I head out to other sites looking for info and comeback to a timeout.  Sometimes I get tyied up with other times (Like work) and get timed out. 

Some of the editors make me post to a security box.  That is pretty lame.  Others won't let me cut and paste.  But I can if I use the "edit" button on the browser.

The text editors I'm told are third party, except the "YAF" and "DNN" editors. That means, I can't really do much about them. I too noticed the lack of spell check with HTML and the stupid extra spacing and the lack of a quote button, and ease of insert an image too.

I'm not sure what you mean by posting to the security box.


Finding a suitable HTML or BBCode editor is one of the things I tend to do. I just don't know when unfortunately.

first I get this in a popup box when I want to copy-



Quote:
Your browser security settings don&#39;t permit the editor to automatically execute copying operations. Please use the keyboard for that (Ctrl/Cmd+C).




then I get this in another one.





Quote:
Because of your browser security settings, the editor is not able to access your clipboard data directly. You are required to paste it again in this window.





Please paste inside the following box using the keyboard (Ctrl/Cmd+V) and hit OK

I have 2 different computer that it shows up on. I am not smart enough to mess with the "settings". This in in CK Editor.

 

It also adds all the extra spaces between the lines.  When I look at my text in the edit mode there are no additional lines to delete.

Not having the links on each page that go back to the forum one is on is a pain - or am I not seeing it.

I can't see the user names when they are in black and the background in green. These may be the same colors as the old site but I used the light version in order to see better. Colorblindness is a b****.

The site looks MUCH nicer since you set the background to green.

I was a member of GameFAQs' social forums for about 5 years, during that time they went through a lot of graphical changes. Everytime they did, everyone complained and threatened to leave but never did. Then they did the same thing when they changed the new graphics.

The point is, things like this just take a bit of adjustment as long as the changes aren't very radical.

I do kind of miss the shout but I'm guessing you got sick of people using it for drawn-out discussions and in lieu of actually posting a topic.

Aaand, I think that's all I got for now.

Thanks. There are a few things I'd like to tweak yet on the Dark theme. I just can't figure out what class it is. WPR mentioned the one thing that's really bugging me in his quote below.

If folks choose to leave, that's their choice. I can only do so much in so much time and if that's not good enough, I do understand their decision.

I think I finally fixed this on the Dark theme.


Edit, nope, it fixed the Dark, but then made it harder on the Light theme.


Edit, okay, now I got it.

Haven't logged on for a while.

Love that we've got our green back.

Just one small minor gripe.

When you hover your mouse over the white title of the thread it changes to a pretty sickly pink / damn purple colour (proper spelling of colour note).Is there anyway this can be changed to yellow or is this just because of the default skin setting?

No purple on a green and gold site.

Don't let vikes or formo see this lol!!!

History would beg to differ, my friend. Color was the original spelling. The u was added later as a British affectation. There were solid historical and linguistic reasons why Noah Webster insisted on spelling the word as he did.

I've checked and I can't find what you're referring to. I did throw a lot of random non Packer colors (please note the non queer spelling of color Razz ) in to help distinguish this color from that color. Specifically for cases like this. Wink
