Not easy on the eyes

Post  MichloIW on Fri Apr 13, 2012 9:12 am

Greetings,

I'm not enjoying the colours. They aren't as easy on the eyes as the Sims 3 forum. Everything seems a little scrunched.

Also, why are we seeing two of every option in the banner? HomeHome, etc.?

Cheers.

I don't know why you're seeing two of everything on the banner, it might have something to do with the forum host. I'm not seeing double, so it might just right itself.

As for the colours, I'll see what I can do! Smile

Oh, and what colours would you prefer to see? Some lighter greens, or more white? Or anything! Smile

Yeah, I don't see double either. Not sure why that's happening.

I personally like the colors. Though, this middle section color might be a bit light. Kinda trips my eyes up a bit. Or, that could just be the headache I've been dealing with xD

I was actually thinking maybe swapping the colors with the background - green background and white boxes? I think the white is a bit bright. I don't know, just some suggestions Smile

I personally like the colors. They are friendly and happy to me. I also don't see double either. :/

I've changed the width of the foum, which you will have noticed already. I'm just about to toggle with the colours so tell me what you think!

I've changed some of the colours, still not 100% satisfied yet, does anyone have any suggestions on colours or layout? I've also removed the column on the left, but don't worry I'll be adding a portal!

I'm no good with color matches. :/ I think it looks good myself. Maybe the Where's Bella at the top could be a different color that may pop more... like a darker green so it doesn't blend as much? Embarassed

I'm kinda thinking maybe the whole background a darker color. Darker shades tend to be easier on the eyes. Then you could do the Where's Bella? a lighter green? But, if you use one of the banners eventually, it won't matter to much

I think it looks great! Much easier to look at, at least for me lol. Hopefully everyone else agrees so we can find something everyone's happy with and stick with it lol

Thanks! I'm still not satisfied, I'll ask everyone what they think about it. The colours change thing is so tedious to control! You change one thing, and the full layout goes nuts!

I like what you've done! I like the Where's Bella being white at the top. Makes you notice it better. I like all the greens too, always did. Green is fun. Very Happy

Thanks! It'll take me a while to get used to it though. I'm soooo fussy with website design and colours and things like that! I do prefer the title white though! Next time I revamp the colours I think I'll go for some blues Smile

Oh yay! I love blues too! Cerulean blue is my favorite color, which is sad because nothing comes in that color. lol

Greetings,

sorry for the late reply but I was actually busy with some other things besides the SIms. Can you imagine? Wink heh

Anyway, for what it is worth, I would advise sticking to white background for the text boxes and do whatever you like with the borders and banner. White is what is the norm so isn't likely to upset anybody and is usually the easiest to read. I understand wanting to be different but you also want to attract the most people.

Incidentally I'm still seeing double at the top so it is odd that others aren't. I'm using Firefox; if other Firefox users aren't seeing it well then I don't know but it isn't a game-breaker.

Thanks and keep up the good work. Smile

Cheers.

Hi MichloIW!

I do agree with the white background. I'm leaving college soon (in about 3-4 weeks!) so I'll be sorting the colours, layout and everything else when I leave. Would you be okay to hold on til then? I have so much work to do I hardly get any time on the forums!

As for Firefox, I've just logged on on my account in that browser and I don't seem to be having any problems. I'm not sure what it is, I'll have a toggle with the settings and such later on!

- Emily Smile
