Different colors

Postby David N. Snyder » Wed Jan 26, 2011 5:56 am

Over the next couple of days, we may be trying out some different colors. So feel free to comment if you like the current colors or not.

The banner is very generic and we will be improving that too.

I don't care for this blue version.

It makes me blue. :tantrum:

Blech! I don't like this blue, white, and tan version either! It's like some generic digital purgatory!

I also don't like the fact that on the main page I can't see what the topic is where the most recent post was posted in a sub-forum anymore--all I can see is which member posted it.

Summary: Not good. Next option please...

I like that "Mark topics read" is on the top and that now there is the option to mark all forums read. Thank you! :smile: About the colour - I would prefer a darker tone.

I'd like to see a maroon - nice idea.

As I say, I like the layout with the buttons at the top of the posts.

I've only just noticed that the wheel in the header for both sites has a 'joy swirl' at its centre. Nice! :)

I think this is the template / format that retro and I and the other moderators prefer.

But don't worry, if you don't like the blue colors, we can tweek the color schemes and add some maroon, gold, and other colors and keep some blue or even eliminate the blue.

This format keeps with the theme of our sister forum website: Dhamma Wheel (Theravada)

I'm in favor of the colors and the template, FWIW.
I like being able to "mark all forums read."

Good work!

Although many individuals in this age appear to be merely indulging their worldly desires, one does not have the capacity to judge them, so it is best to train in pure vision.

I like it. It's as if a blast of cold clean air from the Himalayas blew the murk away and let the sun in.

Dharma Wheel will be down for about 10 to 20 minutes in about 10 minutes from now. It is for the uploading / upgrading to get some other colors for improving the site layout and colors.

The time right now is: 05:23 am GMT

The last topics are now visible on the Board Index (main) page. Site is no longer down and shouldn't be down any further for the rest of the upgrades.
