Get real. The net is EVOLVING beyond text-based and into the graphic-based. Sure, text is still necessary, but the fact remains that more and more of the net is starting to use a hell of a lot more graphic's.


Okay. I don't have any problems with talented, knowledgable web designers using graphics. The problem is that few people are such, and those are the kind of idiots who will use huge-ass sig pics (both dimension-wise and fliesize-wise). It was better off when we didn't have to deal with images like these from the un-web-worthy.

Any web designer worth his salt knows that you need to make your site as accessable to anyone as possible, no matter what their modem speed or web browser.

Oh, and GAlbright, take another look at the forum colors again. Main color's: Grey and White. The Blue and Orange only ACCENT the borders and main links.


I wasn't talking about the forums; I was talking about the rest of the site. :P

It just isnt normal seeing the organization of phpbb in such a previously chaotic place.

You've got it backwards. It was organized before; <i>now</i> it's chaotic.

That is why you have Restrictions. Taking them totally away will just mean that the whole forum upgrade was only to get what... the BB Code and the multiple page wrap. Oh, and the new actual "look". Feh. Might as well have just stayed with the old forum look.

Actually this forum here IS more organised and easier to navigate than the old forum.

And I'm sure that the BB Code can handle link characters such as '%', given that the Administrator has the board recognize this.

I'll also note that I'm speaking that phpBB is also similar to VBulletin, since I know that with VBulletin you CAN do all these things. I really haven't worked with phpBB before, but from what I've seen so far of phpBB, its all pretty close, if not almost a mirror image of VBulletin. (Although I do prefer VBulletin over any other forum though. :P )

I don't care what ya'll say...

This new look was NEEDED and the darker gray and blue is easier on the eyes than say, black on white.

If I designed this (yeah, like I know html... [sniffle]) I would have made the theme white on black. As far as web design goes, that's probably the easiest on the eyes...

Please don't take what I said there and make it sound like I'm backin' you, because I'm not. I was sayin' that if we did all that you do suggest, then there was no point in a forum upgrade at all.

Sorry, but the main reason why I didn't post or anything like that in the old forum was because it seemed too chaotic, something that you feel comfortable with.

The forum wasn't upgraded to allow for page wrap, bbcode, or a new look - it was upgraded so that Phade could appoint moderators, and so that removing posts wouldn't screw things up. Anything additional is either a bonus or a detraction.

Loving the new site. It was certainly a nice surprise to find it up and running, better than ever. As always, Phade, excellent work. :D

The amount of debate that has already started on the forums is amazing....


...well sorta, I was actually kind of expecting this. But anyway...

I must say I like the new forums, past my original 'Oh my god what did he do?' moment. Yea it'll take getting used to, but guess what: you'll get used to it. Change is good, so stop griping and enjoy yourselves guys. The site is bigger than what the forums look like. You could be making videos instead of saying how much better things could be. Phade does a great job, I personally couldn't ask for much more, especially considering the fact that we even have a site like this.


Phade, you rock. Keep up the good work.

Not only is this not the correct thread for you to post such a messsage, you clearly didn't even bother to read any of the posts in this thread before you posted that here.

Your message should be in Off-Topic.

That said, you need to learn to type and spell. Your color scheme, while readable, is not very attractive. Your choices of backgrounds on your artwork pages looks amateurish and crude. There's more I could say, but I'm not really in the mood to critique.
