SLAPPING ON A NEW COAT OF PAINT

So you may have noticed a subtle alteration in the appearance of the blog. I felt like a change was needed. Primarily, I wanted to stretch the blog wider to fit into 1024x768 screens, so that longer posts don't force you to scroll as much to get past. Let me know in comments, or PM on Pal, what you think of the new template. We have a tool that allows us to use many colors and/or pictures as textures, so if you have a bright idea about how the blog should look, share it with the rest of the class!

AAAW! now I'm going to have to go and get new glasses! Claus! you must have a HUGE monitor! and a sadistic streak!
Another thing, scrolling down through all those rocks triggers memories of underground mining! It feels like a journey to the centre of the earth. maybe it IS!
I'll call the new look "courageous web design" subtitled "claus got bored" eheheh

I can't read the comments now. The black text on blue background does weird things to the eyes.

Bring back the "new comments" thing.

I can finally compliment you on something JC; it looks nice. LOL

ONE CAN PAINT A PIG; BUT, IT'S STILL A PIG!

It's looks good, but it's a bit too blue, perhaps different shades would help.

Eff25 said...

Well, I'm out of it.

Claus; forget the "make over"; get some writers with a little talent.

Besides the table being a bit too wide (it's nice to have the links to the right),it looks very calming and fits great with my monitor, thanks. :)

Just a little info, for all of us that dont have wide screen monitors you can change the resolution on your screen size. I would be more than happy; as I'm sure a few other would be too, to explain how one can do that.

I like this background better btw, but hey I'm strange to begin with :o)

Hey Battler, it isn't we need better writers; we have some of the best, we just need more readers that has over a 2nd grade education. Now don't go blaming us for your sucky education, it was the republicans that cut funding for schools.

Good redesign. Only thing I'd like back is being able to go to the homepage via the blog title at top.

Oh, and just noticed, more contrast is needed in the comments pages. Plain white or a mild green or yellow might be good font colors, my suggestions.

If the black text on blue background wasn't bad enough, now I have to squint at the screen to read the comments that are now in a dirty plain text colour on a black background. Perhaps if the text was bold I might not beed to squint lol
