What do you mean by more colorful? I like it the way it is, but if there's something cool you could do to it...I would go for it! Smile

Yeah I like that idea....the forum would still be simple, but also colorful. It would give us something to look forward to with the color changes! Smile Like we could do red and white for Christmas....green and white for Saint Patrick's Day...pink and white for Valentines Day...and so on! Yeah I like the second link for the normal days. It seems modern and gives off a peaceful vibe. Smile

I like that Vista theme too! But I don't think it really fits in with a GoPets style website. Smile

Any chance of offering members the option of viewing the forum in the skin they prefer?

Unfortunately, I think at ForumMotion, you can only pick one skin. I could be wrong but I couldn't find the option to add more than one.

What a pity. It would have been a fun addition to the forum. In that case, a change every holiday sounds good to me.

ugh, please no?

sorry to be a wet sock, but a huge change in outlook will make it very difficult for me.

that being said, it's quite alright if we change the colours an only them, on say, a holiday. that's just neat Smile

Holidays would work for me. I like to be able to not have it too busy. So the less busy is good. But I want more Chickanda's Fritzy! lol

no. i don't, i had just gotten used to the old look.

the text is too small and i can't read it. can't add colour or font properly because the buttons line is cut-off at "add flash" when editing/adding.

No

my gods, it's looks more like the gpx+ forums now

AAAHHHHH Evil or Very Mad

i hate those.

can we please not have this?
to many shades of stuff for my distracted eyes.

atleast the old look was more like the bbcode used on the old gopets forum. this stuff is too "fancy"




ok look, I know I'm being difficult, i am sorry for that, really, i hate being difficult
but I *am* a difficult person.
i couldn't really get into the gopets game until it practically ended.

but there are atleast 5 other people that agrees with me...

I suppose if you don't like the layout, you don't like the layout. Razz But, you can increase the font size on your end to make it easier for you to read.

In Firefox, just press Control and the + buttons on your keyboard simultaneously to zoom in, or Control plus the - button to zoom out. Press Control + 0 to reset. This zooms both images and text. If you'd rather just increase the text, go to View > Zoom and tick "Zoom Text Only".

This works more or less the same in Internet Explorer 7 or higher.

Just curious, though - What browser and version are you using? Because the buttons should not be cut off in the post editor.

MrFritz - If you agree that the font size is to small I may be able to help you change it by tweaking the theme's CSS.

I use opera, and I am *not* switching, i am to dependant on it XD

but seriously, I think anything other than a gpx+-like layout is better.
it's not just the colours, it's everything, the way it's organised on the page, the dropdown instead of links on each person, light text on dark background in the menu, the font, that the emoticons are on the other side, everything

also I know i can zoom, but then i have to set "adjust to windowith" which i can do, sure, but it's a hassle to do it for every page I open (especially since new pages will get opened by e-mail client after replies to topics)

honestly i want the old one back, it was closer to the way the old gopets forum was.

and that this one looks like the gpx+ one is a BIG negative, not just because of how unfriendly they are there, but because i find their forums hard to use from an usability point of view...

i can't explain it, maybe it is because of my ADHD, or a combo of sorrow/squick
but i *really* don't like it.

I think you should alternate the backgrounds according to date!

I have no qualms against changing themes, but I want them to be consistent art wise.
