New color scream?... why?

Hey Jules,

I know you got your balls busted about the old 'color scream' at dinner the other night... but IMNTLBFHO the "purple" thing looked way better than this... this is a bit 'Johnny Corporate' for the vibe of the forums... then again... I could be wrong.

This is now open to polite parlimentary debate... thought the decision of our fearless leader is obviously final... consider this a "nay".

[a goat like creature with nubby horns, distorted human features and a clipboard says: "hmmm, Mr. Fletcher... ah yes, here it is... you're in the eternal burn and torture room, section 56... you'll be recording string overdubs through 'auto-tune' for 'Carpenters' sound-alike recordings for the rest of eternity... except on Wednesdays when we'll burn your flesh with cheap cigars"]

Have to agree with Fletcher, a little too PRO, corporate...

The old colour was really "right" ! The right balance between an internet forum and a "hippy" hideout...



Ciao.

At least the wife dosen't yell at me when she walks by...."jeez Gearslutz again!!!?" the purple was a dead give away. The new color is a little boring, it dosen't keep ya awake like the other ....

New scheme takes longer to load. I'm on a cable modem and notice it, so it might be an issue with people using a phone dialup.

It does if you click on the link... we were "poached" on the "co.uk" address... we got it back but the transfers, links, whatever the **** we need to make it mirror the ".com" site has been a bitch to get happening again. It will in due time, but for the moment it goes to the ".com" address. It's a temporary thing... and really has nothing to do with the current cosmetic.

I dunno about the new look... it is better then the purple though.

How's them apples? I hated that purple from day 1. I have a very strong dislike for pastel colors. I'm all about the earthtones. YMMV.

Jules, the new site looks great !

Ignore the negative comments. Most of these guys would complain even if they were hung with a new rope. heh

Besides if they don't like it they can put up their own site and make it any color they want.

Good job.

Absolutely. Please lose the big type, it's giving me a major headache. Or is that a user choice somewhere?

Don't mess wid a good thing.

The big type font size is because all AE's is cranky old men, halfblind yelling at their assistans to get their slippers, now they can follow the post without a magnification close to the screen heh

Being old and visually impaired... I like the new font size... it's like it gives us 'seniors' a fighting chance to keep up with you 'whippersnappers'...

for those blind bats use the fonts scale and it will bring up most sites larger.
