Does this theme make me look fat?

By Blackwalt - Posted on 28 August 2009

Bear with us as our minds are under construction

I blame Q-Bert. He went off on a "need to redesign the site" tangent two weeks ago. So much so that he dragged me (literally) to chapters to buy a CSS book so that he could edit the site from scratch.

We are also looking at upgrading to a newer version of Drupal. This will destroy the comics structure but apparently no one cares. I have given Q-Bert the go ahead.

This is all experimentation. We want a change but we also want your input (except Stormblade's as "I want things back the way they were isn't input." Neither is his the "world is flat" argument or the "if man was meant to fly" bit. It's all a bit stale.

The 2- column look is based on a gut feeling by Q-Bert and who wants to argue with a gut that size?

Let me know how you feel the right hand column blocks should be organized. What is important to you? I bury the Search but maybe you want it higher?

And other than that. We are still tweaking and we are still taking input.

Make the 'new' bigger or on top of the post.

But I only followed orders. You may puke at will.

You can't use the "I was just following orders excuse" if you were complicit in the original conspiracy.

As a founding member (the founding member) of the Redesign conspiracy you share equally in all guilt.

And I mean all....

Okay okay... can you put it all back now?

It'll grow on you.

If you don't like it, take the raw page, bring up your CSS editor, and have at it.

Now we're gonna have a pink site.

Lemme play a few hours of Eve and then I'll start on solving all of this whining crap.

For a second there I thought you were going to be Adam.

Hmm, looks like I will have to tweak the leading sentence of the comment block.

The section that shows who is online should be right at the top, or at least under the poll.

I don't like having to scroll down for 2 minutes to see if someone who I am about to say something bad about is online or not.

I can't tell what posts are new, as they are no longer marked.

Also, the header tabs (galleries, HoC comics, etc) need to be a lighter (or darker) color, but I like the mouse-over highlighting.

And the right hand section need to be separated somehow, right now it just blends right in with the main section.

on all of the above.

It's right next to "Page Down", unless you're on a laptop.

Swag's picture

That's my main problem.

Maybe Blackwalt needs a new monitor?

It sucks.
