Which new theme to move to? (POLL)

Postby TRshady » Dec 21st, '13, 09:34

The current theme we have is outdated, both visually and technically. So I've scanned the recent suggestions thread, and picked out the only two that I feel are worth considering. Each theme requires work to maintain (especially if there's extras features we'll want installed) and so there will only be one.

The options are:

Alpha https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/style/alpha/demo/

SE Gamer Light https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/styl ... ight/demo/

Make your choice over the next 24 hours or so and if there's a clear winner, it'll be moved to. Don't let the fact that the SE theme has a banner - whichever we go with, they'll be a slick banner created to go with it. So, your thoughts?

I have doubts, but I think I like more the gamer one. I'm always with the minority... :unsure:

I still think we could have something better, and maybe more hip hop related...

yeah, I also find it very flat.

I don't want a new theme, the current one is the best.

My only concern is how bright both of them are. Will they be changed to a grey color? They are both VERY white.

This grey text area color/colours: http://foros.vogue.es/viewtopic.php?f=69&t=206319

That'd be lovely :wub: Not too light, not too dark and the layout that TR likes :y:

I posted this ^ not so much because of the layout link, but the grey text area link. If the layouts are going to stay pretty much as is, but with an Eminem banner added, I'm voting for Gamer Light. Alpha is verrrrry flat.

Thanks for voting people. I wouldn't be too concerned about it being simple - gotta remember we're gonna have our own banner, plus most of ya'll have signatures looking like album covers so it'll benefit from the actual layout not being a distraction of it's own.

Oh and HeySamantha, I see you mention the issue of things being too bright - but I'm not sure if that's an issue. For starters, most, if not all sites I visit (such as BBC News, Google etc) are all what I'm sure you'd consider very white - it's the internet norm for most part. Without meaning to sound flippant, could it be that you simply need to turn your brightness down? Or that you're particularly sensitive to it?

Speaking of signatures though, I'm going to go on a banner culling session shortly - please respect the rules and be sure your's is no bigger in height than a small banner. The large, messy signatures are an eyesore and distract from the conversation. Thanks :flower:

You're OK - just about. It's a little bigger than it should be but otherwise quite neat.
HeySamantha on the other hand, you're signature is definitely too big.

We're a discussion board, it's a conversation here - can you image including a signature into every text message you sent? or rapping linese from an Eminem verse after every sentence you utter in a conversation in real life? Signatures have their purpose and place - in a forum of strangers, they help people recognise and get a glimpse into your personality - but when the size of the signature is multiple times larger than you're message, and draws people away from what you're actually saying - then it's a problem. No one wants to scroll through dozens of images and quotes when trying to take part in a discussion. Anyway, I'm rambling, keep voting!

My sig is too big? The banner meets the requirements. The quote size it set by default. I can't make it smaller, or I would.
