I'm just experimenting. I hate the word "blog" and am fascinated with how the net seems to nurture *everyone's* vanity.

I appreciate the value of a refit as part of getting ready for release, but the change to a black background for the forums is awful, at least for readability.

The new home page looks sharper and the black is OK there because it isn't a big reading thing. But please, please, please tweak this tweak so we don't have to read white on black forum threads for the game's life cycle.

Edit: bad luck, Raven. No red seems "cool" enough for this forum.

Bah....you're just too full of "Goodness" to enjoy the colors of blood and darkness.

Note: It helps if you use Bright Red instead of Dark Red, bolding is nice too. Honestly, I'm really digging this new look (minus that dumb logo getting in the way)

I'd start a new thread titled "Please KEEP The Current Color Scheme" but I can't access the "Create New Post" button. I really really like the new background.

I thought design like that was so 90ies.

Just call me a 90's kid

This really should be it's own thread but I can't create one.  The Elemental War of Magic title is sitting over all the buttons and at the top of the screen and they are mostly unclickable for me.  Logining in is a real pain so I'm lucky I'm able to post at all. 
IE 7 issue apparently. Didn't try IE 8 so not sure if it has the same problem.

This is really the worst forum color scheme I've seen in a while. Sorry, but its hard to read, looks a  bit juvenile (Black and red), and is nowhere near as friendly in general on the eyes as the old one.

Its also very very easy for people to see that its not a work related site now

Can we at least get an option?

And why is the Elemental:_ War of Magic logo right in the middle of the screen on top of everything all the time?

Pleeeeeeeeeeeeease, my eyes are bleeding

I like this new scheme personally.

I like this new scheme personally.

And there is nothing wrong with that - it would just be nice to at least have an option to not having to look at what I think is a truly horrible and back to the 90's design.

It's in IE8 as well, Winter. I think it's a IE thing no matter what version really. I don't use Firefox or any other browser, so I hope they get it fixed soon because it makes surfing the forums nie impossible without a lot of extra clicks, and I can't start a new thread at all nor can I update the ideas list because the "Edit" button is un-reachable on my post.

As a fellow Web/Graphic designer, I'd like to commend your designer on a cracking job. Its suitably dark and mysterious, and create's the right atmos. Good job!

This is pretty bad. I'm finding it hard to focus, I've gotten a headache after reading a few threads, and the whole thing reminds me of some angsty tween's geocities or LJ account. I avoid the sins forums because of this crap

 

Also why cant we access all of elemental's sub forums through the Impulse client?

Confirmed. I must use Firefox to visit the forums now.

Tormy-

Haha. I must use Chrome if I want to edit the HTML of a post. Would need it if I were to try to create a new thread. And surely need it to navigate that "Home > Elemental/Misc > etc" part.

I know that Frogboy loves Chrome but come on, discrimination because of browser? Because in that case, shouldn't it favour IE? (Stardock being Windows based and all that) Could we get access to Beta Test the designs and offer feedback if we have one account in your forums and at least one product purchased?

Cya then....

Since the whole point of a game website is to encourage people to come read and post, this is entirely the wrong attitude.
