So as everyone has seen the site has a new look Smile

I want to start a general thread for suggestions / feedback on the new design.

On the Bucket list right now is a new heavily illustrated nav bar (this might take some time to get it perfect) and I would like to detail the background image more. Add more spikes, maybe lights int he spires, more catwalks, etc.



What would you Commorites like to see?

Personallly I like it bettter when you had the background not scrolling with the page. The way it is now on longer threads or when scrolling the main page it just seems wasted with the pic part only being at the top of the page.

It does give a thematic feel of falling into the darkness of Commorragh as you go down the page. I quite like that. Smile

I like when the image is fixed at the top, but that's a personal design preference.

Sky? Your Call.

Had a day to reflect on the changes so I'll state them here, openly so everyone can see and input to them.

Navbar: You're right, it works. I don't think we need a new detailed one.

Who is online: I think you should go mad and create something cool, a little image, use the little images in the codex as inspiration.

Buttons: I really like the font and look of the navbar more and think the 'new topic' buttons etc would look nicer done in the same way as the navbar.

Background confuses me: A part of me thinks we just don't need it, the site looks amazing as it is; its because ive been reading the forum on my phone today and it cuts it out. However, it is still awesome, I personally think it could be more receded but I know you're working on ideas for it Lucky. I still think aim at making a really long image that will scroll all the way down, otherwise if we're going for the fixed look then maybe some alterations may be needed.

Oh and I think your Dark Architect red clashes.

Can I also say the forum still looks FANTASTIC.

Texts Ive got from my friends include

'dude, your forum looks the shiz'

'hands down better looking than warseer'

Just noticed that you guys must be seeing another image than me, as I don't see any change other than the nav bar being more futuristic. No background picture for me, nor a new head emblem. Then again I'm viewing it on the iPad, might that have something to do with it?

I will work on a new logo for who is online.

I will work on the "new topic" buttons, they are a different font than the nav bar, but other than that and the hex tile they are the same. The hex tile will be excessive if used that much, so lets change the font to match and see how that looks.

The background will cut out on mobile devices, they only show the core forum CSS which is the 950px wide section. I'm certainly going to be tweaking out the background image as times goes on, making it little longer, adding more detail to the buildings, etc. We can't make it scroll all the way down, the image would take forever to load on users with slow connections and the forum hosting would optimize the image too much which basically means it'll start looking crappy and low resolution.

The Dark Architect thing was Tordeck, he loves red Very Happy

If you are viewing on an iPad you won't see the background, the logo is similar to before, just revamp. You probably just didn't notice the difference. Smile

Yeah, it looked pink to me and clashed worse than the red IMO. Just trying to find a happy medium.

I actually really liked the Warlock Purple/magenta. Matched Lucky's army too. The red is so....RED Evil or Very Mad

That is because you are using the iPad. Sometimes I use it also (at the moment for example Wink ). The real beauty isn't availlabel for tablets. Wink

I would like to have the "view posts since last visit"-button also in the threads. So you mustn't go to the main page every time you want to use it. That would make using the Forum more comfortable.

The red still clashes too much, I'm going back to a Darker Warlock Purple. It's my favorite color for all things Dark Eldar and Slaaneshi Smile

It looks good and seems to fit the rest of the theme.

A few more suggestions.

1) At the bottom where the Legend is:

Legend : [ Dark Architects ] [ The Dark Muses ] [ Patrons of the Dark ] [ Banned ] [ Denizens ]

Could banned be moved to the bottom? Like this. It just seem fitting.

Legend : [ Dark Architects ] [ The Dark Muses ] [ Patrons of the Dark ] [ Denizens ] [ Banned ]

2) I have notice there is an "online" button that appear when users are online.

Would it be possible to maybe have a circle/rune next to peoples names that glows (teal green, or whatever colour ties in with the ascetics) when the user is online (similar to the square they have on warseer).

Thanks. Smile

The new purple looks better but its too close to the one we use for the Muses. hence why I used red to begin with. I didnt want any two groups colours to be similar.

And no, the way the groups are listed at the bottom is for functionality. If I switch them up things dont work in the back end.

In my opinion they look distinct enough, and I think it works with the theme. Smile

Hey Everyone, You may have noticed I swapped out the background Picture.

Sky I was trying to hit you up on the chat when I did it, seemed you were lost in the web way somewhere.

I took the ball and ran with it cause I was excited. Don't flay me Smile

If you don't like it we can revert back to before.

I liked the last one better. I can barely see this one.

Also the groups are listed the way they are for a reason. Please dont swap them or they wont work properly.
