    The new look is very bold. I am having a lot harder time reading the posts, but it's probably just my old (bad) eyes. Is it just my settings...or do all the posts read the same now - with no more bold on the new post titles? Is there a way to fix this in my options?

    Hey, some nice changes. A little harder to read for me though.
    Overall the look is cool, but Yeah, is there a way of dialing back on the contrast or lightening up on some of the colors a bit? Right now everything is really hard on the eyes! Also, can the type response box be changed from black back to white or at least some other lighter value or color? Right now you can't see where your cursor is at all. And this last one is a nit, but is it possible to have all the black to red background gradations match in the masthead instead of having the three distinct blocks or zones?

    The new posts are still in bold at the forum level. Perhaps they are not as apparent as before, but they are still in bold. We will take a look at this and see if there is another way to make the new threads stand out a bit more.

    Apparently, lighter themes are in progress but are not yet completed.

    It would be good to keep all the feedback in the main thread, so the folks in charge can keep track of what everyone thinks.

    Are you on a Mac? We have had a couple of Mac users already mention this. We are now trying to determine if this is a Mac specific issue and if so, if this is a Mac based browser specific issue.

    I am assuming you are saying the gradient does not line up all the way across the top of your screen? Please email me a screen cap. Thanks.

    When it first popped up, I went "Whoaaa!!" At first, I didn't like it, but as I looked at it more and more, I thought, "That's pretty darn cool!"

    Now, I think it flat out ROCKS HARD!!! In fact, where's my T-Shirt?!?!8)8)8)8)8)

    Great, great job all! Bucket's off to you!

    take care,

    I'll have to say this, I just changed my board viewing prefs and the "Jango Color Theme" is much easier to view than the Boba Dark version!

    When the page loaded I thought for a split second that I got redirected to one of those "this domain does not exist, but you can buy it for..." site, and I was sent into a second of utter despair. Then I realized it was still here

    It's a little dark for me, but I have to admit, it's one of those things that grows on you.

    I like the changes so far. The branding is great, thanks for all the time put into this project by everybody involved. I'm sure it wasn't easy, but it is appreciated.

    So far so good!

    The color palette is a lot like what I used for my Boba costume web pages

    I too would like to get in on the image rotation action, but that's certainly a minor thing.

    One REALLY minor CSS quibble... For me at least (Safari 2.0.4 / MacOS 10.4.9), the cursor in the text entry box is black. On a black background, that means I can't actually tell where the cursor is, which makes going back to edit text tough.

    For rotating the image on the forum pages, I came up with a neat trick for doing that on the 501st NEG site.

    If vBulletin is anything like phpBB, you can't include PHP code in the templates.

    What I did was to make a negcss.php page, that would generate the style sheet for the page.

    The PHP code for randomizing an image is in negcss.php, so it basically defines the style differently on page loads. Sort of clumsy, but it worked around the limitations in the board without resorting to client side code (javascript and friends).

    Yah, it is easier with the Jango version, (Mac user) but I have the problem like the RPF where I can't see my cursor when I type.
    I like the realness to the jango and boba costumes to the left rather than it being a silhoette or cartoony or drawn, (but I know you guys will really get this from all the non-fetters,) we miss zam But in all humbleness...as long as you don't delete our boards.

    Love the new theme, congrats and thankyou to everyone who worked on it! However, like others have said, it's really hard on the eyes to read the threads. The contrast of the white lettering on the dark backgrounds is really hard to look at and becomes a bit irritating on the eye after a short while. The Yellow / Mustard colour of the font in the "quotes" is a little softer and much easier to read!
    Other than that it's great
    Cheers

    Thanks. This may be a PNG issue. Many of our graphics are PNG due to issues we had with JPG compression affecting the red gradient. It would seem that Safari or perhaps Macs in general are rendering the PNGs differently than it is rendered on a PC. This is on our "thing to fix" list.
