R/F.com Theme?
« on: May 08, 2008, 01:00:18 AM »
Here are 4 choices.....what do you think?  Even if we choose something and we don't end up liking it, we can always change it.  Nothing is set in stone here.  Just thought I'd give everyone a chance to give their input.

Simple Machines also lets the user select from various default themes, too, doesn't it (in your profile, under "look and layout preferences)?  So even if something you hate gets chosen, there are still options.

I really dis-like "black" forums...no mater what text color you select on a black background it appears harsh and difficult to read.  I vote for anything but black!

Black?  Ugh!  I agree with Noble Dreg.  It is hard to read and a bit depressing too

We should have something defiant, saying "You can't kill us!"

What we have is fine. The black is hard to read.
And the image by NaughtyMage says it all. From the ashes we will rise again.

I'm not too crazy about the dark background either. Dark text on a light background is easier on the eyes, IMO. Love the phoenix logo!

I'm with the majority...what we have is fine with me. You know, those of us that are a certain age have a little difficulty with the dark backgrounds...makes it hard to see  ;)

Like I mentioned earlier, I'm going to keep the most popular light and dark background, that way everyone has a choice of which one they want in the end.    :)

Yes, I like the phoenix logo too (thanks NM!), but unfortunately there is a "Phoenix Project" that has to do with helping out Rennies and artists in need, and I wouldn't want to step on toes or have people confuse us with another renaissance festival group.

Anything but a dark background - these old eyes aren't what they used to be.

D'oh! Oh well, I'll have to design another logo then, maybe something with pink unicorns and magical tapirs or something...

Hmmmm...
