Lucy, most of the forum discussion threads are in help now, and the calendar is a subforum.

So, I know a lot of people have been complaining about the color scheme, but I like it. Feel free to disagree with me, but I like that it's nice and simple, and I know saturn and the others who chose the theme were looking for one that would have a mafia-esque feel to it. Something bright and cheery wouldn't really match the purpose of the forum.

I just wanted to put in my two cents; I thought someone else would have commented on it already wary

It's just so dark and everything is mushes together on this gray scale of the background being black then there is cool gray and some lighter gray with No. 2 pencil colored not-quite-black text. I just feel like it's a big dull mess...
I mean the amirite forum was pretty mono-chromatic as well, but the text contrasted better with the background using shades of blue against darker gray, to keep a mellow feel, but also be more visible... I'm not an interior designer or anything, but I think light contrasts would be nice.

If you want to keep the black background I'd suggest a greenish tint since yellow looks like bumble bee, blue is copying amirite, purple makes it gothic and orange is like halloween...

BUT if you don't want that dark gloomy background, I'd suggest royal purple with a reddish/pinkish/orange-ish tint.

Just my thoughts.

Well, one of the reasons we wanted the darker theme was so the banner didn't look bad. I kind of wish we could find something that was black at the top and then the rest of it was mostly white but we have a limited number of themes to choose from.

Skr3w, we love hearing things like this. To be clear, you are referring to the bg color of the forum posts? The bg color behind these words that I am typing here?

I think that the colors could use some work, too. I want to keep it mafia-like but not boring either. I also want to be consistent across the site. I change a couple of little colors pretty often, so Blake and I will see what we can do.

It is possible to build you own theme from the ground up, Statefarm. It takes time, and that is kinda what we are doing. But we are not restricted to preset looks. We can edit the color of anything, actually.

Do you know if it's possible to put a notice or countdown or something at the top of website so not as many people are shocked by a new game beginning?

There is the calendar, with a big link to it atop. I didn't put game ten in it though wary

I'll look for a better option though.
