Title: Forum Design Challenge
Post by: VastOne on January 15, 2013, 10:03:06 PM
Forum Design Challenge

Throwing this out there to everyone but I think falldown will jump on it right away.

There are two images I would like replaced with a design I am thinking of.

The first is this image

(http://vsido.org/Themes/backnblack202/images/off.gif)

right click, view image and download for specs

That image is next to every forum that does not have a new post

I would like that be a vsido image that is more clear with the black swirl and possibly VSIDO within it too, but that is not a necessity

The second image is this one

(http://vsido.org/Themes/backnblack202/images/on.gif)

right click, view image and download for specs

I would like this to be the same color as the above one but with a Debian Red or Green or White Swirl... any one of these would work

Then there are these that need to be created in correspondence with those.  They are markers at the bottom of the Forum page that shows what they mean.

right click, view image and download for specs

(http://vsido.org/Themes/backnblack202/images/new_some.gif)

right click, view image and download for specs

Who is up for this challenge?

Well here is one thought..

and

Keeping with the debian swirl.

Going to test them now falldown.

Added the smaller ones also.

It's hard to put detail into such a small image.. The VSIDO just didn't work.

Post by: VastOne on January 16, 2013, 02:36:00 AM
The originals were in gif, I think I can just rename these to gif and they should be fine

Will test and see

Yeah I just saved them as png.
Seemed senseless to save a non animated image as a gif.  ???

The forum/community is IMO the best looking one I've seen on the web!!!
Title: Re: Forum Design Challenge
Post by: VastOne on January 16, 2013, 04:56:07 PM
I switched the marble background to a black matte background.  I think this contrasts much better with the grays and blues.

Thoughts?

Post by: jst_joe on January 16, 2013, 05:02:38 PM
Looks good...
but I haven't seen anything about this forum that doesn’t.  :)
Title: Re: Forum Design Challenge
Post by: falldown on January 16, 2013, 05:03:53 PM
Is the original background accessible VastOne?
I was thinking that I could tweak it. 
Title: Re: Forum Design Challenge
Post by: VastOne on January 16, 2013, 05:22:15 PM
Sure is falldown

It is attached

Post by: VastOne on January 16, 2013, 05:27:25 PM
Thanks jst_joe..  Just as an fyi, that marble original one does strange things when I scroll ... it warbles or scrunches ..

Reminds me of some trips I took in my younger days ... with the help of some shrooms.  :o :o
Title: Re: Forum Design Challenge
Post by: falldown on January 16, 2013, 08:36:50 PM
VastOne Is there an option in the forum setup to make the background stationary.. where only the forum text boxes scroll?

If that makes sense.?.

Title: Re: Forum Design Challenge
Post by: VastOne on January 16, 2013, 08:51:59 PM
It makes sense.  As far as I can tell or locate as if yet, there is nothing like that.
Title: Re: Forum Design Challenge
Post by: falldown on January 16, 2013, 09:03:29 PM
Well.. the black looks good.
I am curious.. does the background tile the image or stretch?

If it tiles the image then I think this would look good..

Post by: VastOne on January 16, 2013, 09:22:34 PM
It tiles.  I have changed it to a gif and loaded it but no amount of refreshes seems to have an effect. 
Title: Re: Forum Design Challenge
Post by: falldown on January 16, 2013, 09:26:33 PM
It was worth a try. Thanks for giving it a shot VastOne.

I have zero experience at webpage design.
Perhaps that is something I should try.. falldown's blog!!  :D

I have been crash coursing it all day today to build a simple Download page

I am slowly getting there.

I didn't want to keep HiJacking merelyjim's introduction so I posted this here.
I think this one turned out better.
