anybody knows when they are going to change the look of the forums ?
they said it was temporary, just curious when..

It HAS been changing! Avatars were moved back to the side, the NewTek banner was put back at the top and so on...

There are a lot of user options now - you can close off groups of forums you aren't interested in and so on...

Yeah, but it could still be improved. My main concern is that all the graphical elements are too large and occupy too much scrren space. Especially with the recent split up into more sections you're already scrolling endlessly on the forum start page. Gosh, do I miss the simplicity of the old forum befor vBulletin...

Hey Mylenium,

You can collapse the forums you aren't interested in - look at the top-right of each group...

I'm talking about the look of it , not the layout

those are the preset colors for this kind of forums, my question
was when are they going to change them to match the rest of the web site.

I'm guessing you are meaning the theme of the forum.

10-09-2004, 11:16 PM
yes, the colors..
it doesn't match the rest of newtek's web site

It's only a small gripe, but I agree.

Actually, the colors being used in the forum navigation are not the defaults. They match colors being used throughout the LightWave side of the site.

As to when it will be finished, we are working on a couple more minor changes, but we want to make sure they'll be seamless before integrating them.

There is always something to complain about...

C.mon people for real ...

WTF theo and hypershade ?

I was just curious if it was going to change, small question!

The layout is excellent but I find the colors are a strain on my eyes (especially after tweaking textures for hours on endů). :eek:
Not enough contrast. A darker background would be a plus. It's not so bad on the LCD but the white background on the CRT is rough on the retinas. Also the option to increase the font size of messages would be helpful.
