Hi Everyone.

The color scheme is mostly done, but there are a few adjustments that need to be made, such as the color scheme when adding a post, the buttons, etc. I will start addressing those this week.

Yep, those are the default smilies. We will need to roundup some new ones to add to it. I'll add it to the list of things that need to be worked on.

Perhaps a lighter shade of back ground not quite so black at least on my screen.

We can all refer to one another as "Junior" now (junior members)!

Better than the white, though, right?

Wow, this edit screen is really white. But bearable since it's not full-time.

LOL, it's identical to the one you used to like. But, I can certainly lighten it. A previous version I had was lighter.

Trying different shades. How about this one, or do you want to go with one of the lighter ones like I had before?

Well, JR, it looks like it's not quite as bright as it was, but brighter than the
dark blue. A good compromise color, maybe?

I'm going to put a lighter shade on the quoted material so you guys can choose which looks better.

JR seems to like the lighter shade, whereas I like the one not quite as light,
but lighter than the dark one. But I can live with either one. Doesn't matter.

This is a nice board, and thanks to DN for telling me about it ;)

Just working the kinks out. You can see from the graphic in the upper left "Welcome to the Broncos Forums", we have lightened the background color and made some other changes, but now there are a few mismatches. We'll get it lined out soon.

I'm afraid if I changed it to Blue like the main background that we would have problems with all the buttons and stuff. I can make it a bit darker grey if needed.

Denver Native was the inspiration.

I'm a bit bleary eyed at the moment, since I worked well into the morning getting it setup. We didn't decide until yesterday afternoon to do it.

We'll get most of the kinks worked out in the next couple days. :D

Tned
08-27-2007, 09:54 PM
So does this site follow the same COC as BM?

To be determined. We are getting to get some input and hopefully have a common sense set of guidelines. In general, we want this board to represent the desires of its members. There are no agendas here, just trying to have a community all of us will enjoy spending time on.

Tned
08-27-2007, 09:57 PM
I understand what you mean TD. At BM everytime i had a sig someone would complain and i wouldnt be able to keep it up. Thanks for letting me know.

Also, I invision (but again TBD), that most decisions like that will be voted on by the mods (TBD), the entire group of members, or a subset. In essence, if a sige REALLY is offensive to a great many people, then it needs to be addressed. If someone 'thinks' it 'might' be offensive, then it should stay.

Yes, talking about the screen that pops up to add a new post. Until a little while ago, it was bright white, like the color behind the font dropdown and size drop down. It was blinding every time you were reading a post and hit reply and this bright white new post form popped up.

I hate the password thingy. It is designed to keep the spam bots that plagued BM off the forum, so I think it is worth the little extra during the registration, to hopefully keep them out.

Sometimes I have to go through three or four images. A lot of times I can't tell if it is a lower or upper case letter. :(

I "think" I saw a mod somewhere that allows you to answer some sort of question instead.

I have not used it so I can't tell you how good it is but might be an alternative over the captcha images.

As soon as I get a breather, I am going to setup a test vBulletin site, which will be a mirror of this. Now that we are up and running, I will probably want to check out any mods on a test version of BroncosForums, to make sure I avoid any system outages.

It's quite a bit lighter. Ironically, I started with a 'similar' ;) color the the old BM, and had quite a few people say that it was too dark, it was nearly black. So, we played around (you might see some early posts where we are chatting about which one we like, etc.) and settled on this one.

I think it's a nice compromise, blue, but not too dark. Definately have some cleanup, on some of the borders and stuff. Dream has helped out by making the top banner, and is workin on some custom buttons to get rid of th grey/blue ones.

Some time this weekend, I will get a test server up, and I will start doing future changes on that and test them, so that people using the forum don't have to see 'on the fly' testing.

For those interested, this was the old sites's, old scheme.

The blue might have been more striking, but I think the white almost became a bit neon, almost the opposite effect of what happens with the black text on white background.

And I don't mind the on-the-fly testing; if they considered doing that on the official site, the background color issue would've been cleared up long ago. :cheers:
