Vote For The New Main Color Theme Of The Forum

Postby Hound » Wed Feb 26, 2014 1:53 am

Hello all.. Currently we are using the default color theme for the forum. It's not exactly pretty, and online if you use a default theme people tend to look at the forum operators as lazy. So.. we have come up with a short list of themes for you to vote on. Nothing is written in stone but this will give us the best idea of what you all like. Any of these themes would probably be good. *Please let us know your thoughts or opinions on any or all themes, likes or dislikes. You are allowed 2 votes, a first and second choice.

1.) Oxygen: http://demo.phpbb3styles.net/Oxygen

2.) We Universal: http://demo.phpbb3styles.net/we_universal

3.) Maxthon: http://demo.phpbb3styles.net/Maxthon

4.) Artodia Ultra Blue: http://demo.phpbb3styles.net/Artodia%3A+Ultra+Blue

5.) Ca Gen2: http://demo.phpbb3styles.net/CA+Gen2

6.) XandBlue: http://demo.phpbb3styles.net/xandblue

We will wait to see which theme gets the most votes and probably go with that. Majority rules. 8-)

I voted for Artodia Ultra Blue. It's very easy on the eyes, which is important for those of us using hi-res displays, where often the text can be small and hard to read.

As it seems to be the frontrunner, i've installed Artodia: Ultra Blue but I haven't set it as the default. You can manually enable it in your profile by clicking on the user control panel link (top left of the screen, and selecting edit globlal settings; or click this shortcut: http://forums.weatherpage.ca/ucp.php?i=prefs&mode=personal) and selecting it from the drop-down.

Funny thing is that the new theme doesn't seem to have a user control panel link in it. Odd.

It does. It's the icon to the right of the Messages button, and a few icons to the left of the Logout button under the header.

Gotcha, I see it.
I also added a rough attempt at a logo. But maybe someone who is better than I at creating graphics might want to take a shot at it.

The winner is:
Artodia Ultra Blue

This will become the default theme.

Second place goes to We Universal.

** We may include the default & We Universal in the profile area so you can choose the one you want to use personally. Just be aware that if we add a modification to any theme files, it will be the main Artodia Ultra Blue theme, which means the other themes may not have all the same options or display.
