Yeh we need that Thread.

But looks good, and really good job TC. This won't take that much time to get used tbh.

Shouldn't this be an, announcement thread?

just a thought... what about the front page? could have have some kind of stylish looking portal thing? that would be awesome, something like with the newsest posts listed up then you could click through to go to the forums..

getting ahead of myself xD i just saw it on another forum is all ;)

Good idea though X most gfx forums are layout in the same way. And a live chat box would be good aswell. :D

I've never been a fan of things like that, toecutter. They seem to just get spammed and take up room on the screen.

Btw, my general intent is not to reproduce this style we have on this old forum on the new one. We need a change. TC picked a decent template and now I'm simply fixing things that are too much of a change. But generally we need something newish, but not too new so as to annoy people.

Hopefully I'll be able to move the avatar stuff over the left in a bit.

Liking the sound of a change. Lose the plain look and gain a new look. Can't comment until final decisions have been made and the changes start happening.

Because a little change here and there brings in some new life... having things stay the same gets dull and boring... Besides, its all that big of a change now. I've been editing the style all night and its coming on nice I think. I'll edit the icons at some point and then I think most people will be able to either like it or get used to it.

added to the fact Phpbb2 is out dated, if you knew all the features and how much more helpful it can be you'd see. So you're losing a theme? Nothing to get upset over imo.

I'm looking forward to the change, although I really hope the colour scheme doesn't remain the same!

They already are. Like I said I've already been making changes. The green will be going for sure.

If so sounds cool!

Crakin , if you need any help ill try my best to help ya out ;)

What WOULD be great is if you could split up the sticky/anouncements and regular posts, so, they are almost like 2 different tables. It CAN be done, just how i dont know, i think its to do with the template, ill dig arround later and find out what i can if you're willing to give it a try :)

The theme is nice tbh :D - id have preffered either a nice dark theme (which looks good, this one is half way there), or a sivler/grey clean theme.

To me, this layout and colour scheme seems easier to read than the new onw.
