It looks fantastic! :D
I love it http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/jumper.gif

19-05-05, 20:15
Me too, it's FAR more easier on the eyes than before. At first I looked at it and I thought my PC got screwed up, definetely a surprise design.

TLR, if you need help with a new forum logo I might be able to assist you.

19-05-05, 20:23
Yea i think it rocks! Alot better http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif

19-05-05, 20:23
Yeah, it does. It's easier to read.

But I thought my pc had gone wrong at first. I pressed the refresh button and it comes up white!

It does look better though.

19-05-05, 20:25
VERY very much better.
Oooow - my eyes have to get used to it it is so sparkling brilliant. But much more easy to read! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif

Bit of spring cleaning. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

19-05-05, 20:26
i like it

what is the forum logo anyway?

19-05-05, 20:29
The forum logo is the thing you see up top with the AOD lara image. I say we give it an update now that Legend looks like it's gonna kick AOD's ass so hard :D .

19-05-05, 20:29
LOL is it only me that does not like it, I the white bits stand out too much and distracts my eyes while trying to read http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/clown.gif

But if everyone else loves it, I will have to start to wear sunglasses when reading :cool:



19-05-05, 20:31
hahah! Soon as a i came on i though ' aaaah! what happened!?' but i think its coooel.

19-05-05, 20:43
Hmm I got a wild idea for these forums but I unfortunately cannot send tlr any PMs lol.

Oh well the blue is nice.

:cool: Fake LINK (http://http://)

Aw. Still the same. :( *cries*

*sigh* It's okay.... I guess. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/redface.gif

19-05-05, 20:52
I prefered the old theme. This theme is way too bright IMO.

19-05-05, 20:54
To be honest... my eyes are burning...

It's ok, but maybe it's a little too bright, and too many contrasts... *looks away from the screen*... ... ... *looks back* "Aah! Eyes burning!"

One more thing, when the post background is the brighter type, I almost can't see the edit and quote thingies...

OK. Keep the opinions coming in, then I can get it spot on for everyone. (or try, at least)

19-05-05, 21:04
The only thing I know from experience is that its easier to read bright text on a dark colored backround @1AM then it is to read black text on a bright colored backround.

It's at least what I've learned...but of course never mix black and red cause the red seems to 'bleed'.

A bit bright but I still like it. Lowering the brightness on my monitor helps. With the white background posts you can't see the PM, edit, quote, profiles buttons.

19-05-05, 21:33
my monitors broken! the gamma on the site has been turned up +15!!

there a chance that next time the theme changes it actually becomes Tomb Raider based, with some more flowing colours.

keep going from light->dark->light .. what's wrong with having some nice autumn warm colours? perhaps some backpacks for icons and what-not?

19-05-05, 21:42
EDIT PROFILE PM QUOTE have become unreadable!.


[EDIT: sorry laracroft8290, i hadn't noticed you posted the same thing before i replied.]

19-05-05, 21:44
Bleck! I don't like it. I've seen many other forums themes that are more attractive and easy on the eyes. Invision boards are a little better because of the cool blue colours. This white and gray gives me a headache. :( It'd look better with different, deeper colours imo. Something besides gray. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

19-05-05, 22:18
Is that any better? I've replaced the very light colour with the slighty darker.

19-05-05, 22:22
Yes i would say it is better, tlr.
But could you UNWHITE the words "PROFILE PM EDIT QUOTE"? Into a darker grey or something?

19-05-05, 22:24
They are looking good on the darker segments, but still hardly readable on the lighter... :(

tlr online
19-05-05, 22:24
Joseph. They are images, not words, so they'll have to be remade.

19-05-05, 22:46
Just did, and sent to you. (email) http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif

The new theme looks very very cool!!! :cool: http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif

19-05-05, 23:44

Joseph. The Report Post and Profile colours (although both darker) do not match. :confused:

20-05-05, 01:18
New one sent.

20-05-05, 03:08
The gray text looks alot better, if the colors were a deeper blue-gray that would rock..... http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif

20-05-05, 04:57
I'm wondering why it keeps being changed http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

How's our 'Rose' theme then?

20-05-05, 06:22
Whoa. I didn't miss that. Like my desktop theme.

20-05-05, 06:26
The new theme looks great. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif

20-05-05, 06:41
The Logo on the top of the page is missing :confused: does that mean a new one is on the way http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/jumper.gif

20-05-05, 06:42
That means I'll be asking our talented members to design a spanking new logo for us http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

20-05-05, 06:58
Well..I was doing a jungle themed design, but it seems you guys already have a Rose one up now.

*Shrugs* Eh, oh well.

20-05-05, 07:15
ew its all brown. it looks like someone took a dump all over the forums http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/privateeye.gif

Why not make a whole bunch of themes and then allow members to select what theme they want to be displayed in their profile http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

and now i'll have to change my avatar http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

Poor tlr. Like he said TRY to please everyone.

20-05-05, 08:29
I dont think pleasing EVERYONE is even possible tlr.

This one's not bad but its kind of strainful for the eyes.

20-05-05, 09:12
I quite like these colours, but the "Infopop" link at the bottom of the page is not readable against the background.

20-05-05, 09:19
I don't think the white is going to work unless you change the colour of Profile, PM, Edit and Quote. Other than that I think the Rose is so much better and as I have really bad eye problems this actually feels better on the eyes. Not having any difficulty focusing with this scheme. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

20-05-05, 09:54
Bring the darker colours back.....

this isnt a good theme to have when it's 3am and you wanna post without havving to wear sunglasses

20-05-05, 09:58
The rose theme looks beautiful http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

Thanks so much for your efforts, tlr, they are very appreciated http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/hug.gif

20-05-05, 10:04
The brigther of the two post backgrounds is still way to bright, and I agree with Fugitive, why not let people choose what theme to use for themselves? That way you could please everyone!

20-05-05, 10:25
O WOW http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/yikes.gif the white is very bright http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif The pink is ok though. I just have to get used to it.

20-05-05, 11:05
But it's....pink.

20-05-05, 11:10
To be honest, I liked the blue one better. But this one's OK too, for me it's all about the content anyway :D So, should I fix the old banner or will there be a competition to choose a new one?

20-05-05, 11:52
i think a jungle theme would be good, nice light n dark jungle greens, with a nice pic at the top of TRL, in the nice jungle inviroment, then it would have a theme, the rose theme however many people likk it, is quite gender specific, and looks like a grannys bedroom!

But then again, when did my opinion matter.... http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

Hey I just notice the forum is back to the old theme. Didn't you like the new one?

Bad move, Anubis? U don't like?

20-05-05, 14:18
Not as much as I like the new one. But I admit, it is more relaxing for the eyes.

20-05-05, 15:25
That newest theme is looking pretty good http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif

Here's the banner for it:

20-05-05, 15:45
I have to say I feel really bad for TLR, and its the fact that once people get so attached to a certain theme..they usually rebel against anything new you throw at them.

Like I could probably end up making this great theme ive been talking about (and I'm gonna try), but there will always be someone who goes "BLECH. THE &lt;insert color here&gt; IS WAY TOO BLAND!". Just feel safe in knowing you run a great Tomb Raider fansite that always brings the fans the new material FIRST, Tlr. Forums are nothing compared to the kickass job you do on the site.
