Right, put simply a lot of the design and presentation of this new board is very close to an easily downloadable template. I figured before going crazy I'd wait and see what kind of a response the rumour mill would bring, infact *gulp* I wasn't sure if anyone would come, but look you're all here *sniff* pitching in *tears*.

So!

How would you like to see things evolve, new colour scheme, more buttons, less buttons? There's a lot of flexibility in this new board, but I don't want to dictate.

Therefore any complaints and/or suggestions for improvements get them in now.

Switch - thanks for making us a new Darklings.

But seeing as you mention it ... the font is quite small which makes the pink on grey text quite difficult to read. Some of us are older now and the eyesight isn't what it was. :D

Sez is the one to ask there, she knows her shit that lass.

As for sections and stuff, what we had last time was as close to perfect as a messageboard can get I reckon.

A wrestling section perhaps? :P

It's traditional! However yes Sez has given me some opinions that back up this score and I think an alternative easier to read skin might be a good start.

For the record, when I first came to this incarnation of the website and noticed "The Management", that image was EXACTLY what I thought of.

My grammar might be crap, my CSS Skills neglible, but if I can bring anything to this board then it's dated references ;-)

I like the pink, but the contrast is as fuzzy as my fur. That's why I made my signature purr a bit lighter.

I didn't say no to the colours, just that they are difficult to see :p

I like the pink on grey scheme, though the toned down pink that Panther suggested looks nicer and not so dazzling (but of course is less traditional!)

I shall have a look at toning down the pink and to be honest the grey could perhaps be a little darker. Maybe go back in black. I haven't had chance to do much web stuff this week as exciting as things are life has been getting in the way.

I'm thinking perhaps to add a starry, spacey background down the left and right sides in keeping with the 'holding pattern', any thoughts on that?

Feel free to PM me some suggestions for alternatives. Although you might well be the one I come calling too when I try and fail to implement them.

Switch625, yeah I also have to say here thanks for making us a new Darklings!
More than happy to be back and see all the fellow Darklings. Wooo!
Hmmm, the board looks nice! But I like that idea you said, Back to black would look great! And yes, I think a background like that would be cool too!

if you want to use the same background as the official website, here it is:

I do like the sparkly starry idea....but any chance of having a choice of skins, so that at home I can enjoy the sparkliness and whatnot, but at work I can use a more subtle appearance so as not to draw attention ;)

*realises I am being high maintenance*

Not at all. It might take a little while as the BT line remains down here, but a Work Version sounds a great idea.

Sparkly sounds ACE! Am well up for anything glittery :mrgreen:

Work version is very cunning. Maybe with a Boss Button that pings up an emergency spreadsheet :lol:
