Worst. Upgrade. Ever.

@Posy - Where there is demand, there is opportunity. Those sandwiches won't make themselves.

I believe a rather large amount of the forum is modified to feel more attuned to the color scheme. If anyone notices anything, please advice. I'm currently browsing through the code every once in a while to double check things.

Good job, the dropdowns look especially nice! The icons are a little ugly, since just color shifting them causes what used to be soft background shading to become a thick gray or white outline. I wonder if phpBB has available raw versions of their icon files for editing. Still, the forum is looking better. I can now properly distinguish the pagination!

Some places that still need editing:

  1. Attaching a file

  2. Post icons (the ugly white aliasing continues to haunt us ever since it was turned on)

  3. Topic Review scrollbar (it's invisible/black-on-black atm)

  4. Blue text of the board-wide announcements (this isn't a Geocities website, right?)

  5. I would consider changing all white background/black text areas to fit with the color scheme. This includes most text fields and non-icon buttons. They are serviceable, but as far as having a custom theme they kinda ruin the mood and don't match.

I'll get on these, can't disagree with you on them. I haven't had a chance to design icons. yet, but hopefully I can imagine up enough to replace the current defaults.

I just came back and noticed we lost the blog function. Well, that sort-of sucks. :'(
I wanted to try the blog function on the Campaign Creations site since I first joined here. I won't totally suffer without it, but I wanted to see how it would turn out...

Oh well, I guess you can't have everything, especially when it comes to upgrading a forum. Right?
Anyway, I am not hating the upgrades so far, I am actually happy the site seems mostly the same, as far as the forums area seems to be. Although I could do without the annoying orange rectangular notice thing on top with the blue words inside saying "still updating" on it. Other than that, I wonder how everyone else is doing?

BTW, My eyes are kinda starting to strain... I was up all night studying, not because of the site. At least I still have my Signature. :)

Be aware over the course of the past few day and following week or so there will be random breaking and changes as I fiddle with the forum.

You just want to change the font to comic sans, and this is your way of testing the waters.
