    Style Feedback Please

    I've been working on making the new forum skin similar to this one.

    Please don't post in the sandbox, but if anyone want's to give feedback about the look I would appreciate it.

    You aren't alone - I too prefer the current look. Not that the other one is bad - just like this one.

    I don't see anything wrong with it. After using it for a while I think others will like it

    I didn't mean I saw anything wrong with it-- just think this one is sharper etc.

    But its irrelevant- new one looks good.

    shawn... i would just darken the red on the menu bar and maybe make the text on them white instead of black.. but other than it's a great start.

    I prefer what we have.....but if you are looking for feedback, I would like a darker red and get rid of the yellow font. I think there are other option accent colors that don't look dated and like the previous forum skin we used to have.

    It looks very sleek though. It's not that I don't like it, it's just I like what we currently have. I'd be happy either way though.

    What color do you suggest? After demo-ing about 10 different colors the yellowish font was easiest to read against the dark background.

    My only problem is that when I click on it, my firewall at work blocks it.

    That's personal preference, but the main reason for it's success is the community of people modding it.

    Unfortunately the new owner of vBulletin have really irritated the community and most of them are flocking to XenForo, which is written by two ex-vBulletin developers that I respect a lot.

    The owners of vBulletin have started a lawsuit against XenForo just to try to dissuade the developers from releasing it because they don't think they can compete in the marketplace (that's my opinion anyway).

    I have the source code for both and they are completely different.

    It looks good. It may just be me or my browser but the bottom half of the screen is just white after the forum?

    It isn't just you. That will go away when we have all the forums loaded...it is because the height of the form is less than the vertical resolution on your browser.

    Honestly, I just dislike the white background... seems to bright IMO

    Quick browser question:

    Is there one that works better with the new setup? I know IE worked fine with the "old" TF style but when we changed to the current one Chrome/Firefox had better compatibility. Which one do you think will be the best? Or will it be user preference?
