Yuk!! No! Definately not! Sorry , but I really don't like that... Pink is good for me ... or the silver blue if I have to... :D

Natural colors that I love!!!

If you could change the color of the post boxes :D (the boxes where our posts appear)

Also, the dark brown line at the top:

Bring out the poo-poo platter! :D I don't like that it's only one colour but in different shades. Maybe in a number of colours? :confused:

what an interesting shade of brown. how about purple and silver?

Apofiss
20-05-05, 21:47
Why there is need to change colours? Silver blue is ok after all. If we want some changes then new TRLegend theme would be in time (which is in works I guess http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif )! Don't misunderstand me, with TRL theme I mean not totaly remade theme, but just a little modified - forums has to be some 'strong' origins that never change (or something...) <- just my thought http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/whistle.gif

I thought this in more keeping with tombs and stuff. Each theme takes about 2 hours to produce, so we'll keep trying different themes until we get it right.

Poor TLR, I really hope he gets one the people love.

Thorn
20-05-05, 21:55
Didn't we have purple, blue, and silver mixed into a theme before? I liked that one the most! I thought it was rather attractive.

It's too bland. Having a multi-colour theme will give it more interest imo. I wish we had the long past purple, blue, silver theme. :(

Apofiss
20-05-05, 22:57
Cool! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif BTW there is colour changes or even some work done with textures (and transparent textures, new style or something)? http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/privateeye.gif http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/whistle.gif *curiosity is high* :D

Right folks. I'm gonna leave this theme on for a day or two. Please keep giving me your feedback. I'm hoping it will grow on you. Either way, this is still your forum, and the members will make the final vote.

20-05-05, 23:32
well at first i was skocked and i dident like the theme , but now its not that bad , but it would be grate if you can put in the backgroyund the bricks like in the fanpackage of tomb raider legend , and then all the things you want to put because you are very creative... but this theme is not that bad at all

Thorn
20-05-05, 23:40
The bricks of TR Legend! Yea, that would be nice! It would be darker and a nice contrast between the tan. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif *Hopes*

20-05-05, 23:43
I dont mind this theme that much.

Legend
20-05-05, 23:48
I don't like it, sorry.

I made loads of style sets at the forum I work on, and the pale green/white whith dark buttons is the most popular, and I think that would be quite tomb raiderish. I think most people have suggested a nice jungle theme, that would be cool, very....organic? Fresh!

I would offer to help out because I know it is a real pain in the ass, but I'm only familiar with vbulletin.

Tombcool
21-05-05, 00:00
I think its better then the old one a bit...personally I would go with blue/darkblue like the Legend website.

Thorn
21-05-05, 00:10
How about this or something similar for the background?

i like the new theme, (makes me think of a world in supermario on SNES)
but i miss the bar at the top. i always click on it to go back.
now i have to click on the "home" button, and thats much harder to target with the mouse

FallenxFromxLight
21-05-05, 01:17
Well I gotta be honest. I didn't wanna say anything cause I was helping design a theme and that'd look shady but...I'm just not really feeling the brown that much.

Maybe it's because I was beginning to grow attached to the blue, but the brown is too relaxing..makes me wanna sleep at late hours.

Olvidarse
21-05-05, 01:46
Am I the only one who likes it? I love the new forum theme. It's easier on the eyes, compared to that bright blue. Egh, no bright colors, please?

21-05-05, 01:50
I don't mind this. But anything is good if you can see all the text (like white on off white which isn't good) and LINKs can be distinguishable from other text. That's all I want. :D

edit: Actually this theme reminds me of fall. As where a blue and white theme (which BTW I missed seeing) could be used during the winter months.

Yeah. Thats something you could do. Have seasonal themes. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif Maybe. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/privateeye.gif

I'm rather warming to this too actually. Everything was replaced. The graphics, css files, and templates. Even the InfoPOP logo was customised.

Speaking of seasonal themes...

What about a light green and light greenish blue for spring.

An orange and yellow for Summer.

Brown/Tan (Sepia?) for fall.

And Blue and White (silver/gray) for Winter.

:confused: Sound like an idea?

Edit: Then again that might not work. Since in places like Australia when 'Winter' (i.e. December, February etc.) is actually very hot. So the cool colors would conflict with that time of season in that part of the world. :rolleyes:

Not a fan.

Grey is just so much less... Intense than this.

Wowooo... :( I like to EAT mustard, but i don't wanna see it on my screen when i'm browsing the forum. This forum looks even uglier than the stone red version.
Yuck. :(

See the theme of the forum as a frame around a picture. Not every picture looks good in a brown frame. Every picture looks good in a silver frame. Silver combines very well with grey and greyish blue. Ergo: just like a picture-frame, a forum-theme has to SERVE the forum's looks, not make or break it.
Colours are like personal flavours. To serve everybody, the public theme must be 'neutral' of colour.

I am in favour of the Silver, grey and lightblue, AND i like Thorn's suggestion! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif

This one is way too depressing and the contrasts are too big IMO.

About more colours; maybe it wouldn't look too good with many kinds of colours, too mixed perhaps http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/privateeye.gif

Blue and silver look great together. I think blue in the post area would be so much better. It's nice and calm. Hehe descriptive words. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

I think brown would be good for maybe the background or border. Silver would be nice on the topic areas etc. Blue would be great for the post area.

That's my opinion, what do you think? http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif
