This is the default phpBB with the default everything, don't get all excited, we'll be customizing it heavily and I expect a design from Gavin... soon. :)

Is there a logo yet, or will that be part of plat's creation?

Also, when you say other skins/themes, do you mean like they do it at graphic-forums.com where each theme is COMPLETELY different, even the logo?

As of now, we have no logo. If Gavin creates one, he'll create a logo. But he has expressed to me that he is kind of busy, which is understandle.

If any of the other 3 of you want to try your hand at developing a template, please do. It will be a complete template, graphics and all. Any colors you want. And since we don't have a logo yet - try your hand at that too. No guarentees on anything.

When I say we MIGHT have multiple templates, which I'm not sold on, I mean different templates, but with the same logo (maybe in different colors). We have to have one distinct logo in order to build brand identity.

Thanks for the post. :)

I gotta say, at first I didn't like the new design. But now that I've looked at it a couple of times It's really growing on me. It seems very "Euro" .. lol.

I noticed that before I posted ;)

I can't even put my finger on what it was that i didn't like the first time I saw it. The *only* thing I can think of is maybe the baby blue.

But, after coming back to it and looking at the logo and nav buttons, but especially the logo, it reminds me of Euro style ads and art. It very much looks like the log you'd find on a Jacket you could by in say, Germany. (I picked Germany because I'm half German ..lol).

I do like it now though really. I just had to get over the baby blue!

(I do notice one bug though Patrick, the grey bars below this window on replies have black text on dark grey - very hard to read!)

Thanks, beley :)

I think it would be nice if the usernames in the "view topic" page could be increased in size - perhaps 12px? They're really tiny right now and it's kind of an important thing to know who posted what. :)

I also like the user info to be left aligned, instead of centered how it is right now. Just a suggestion. :)

Also, I think it might be nice if the Preview and Submit button were switched around. I rarely preview my post, and I always hit preview by accident because it's on the left.

I kind of like the username size.

I set the poster info to center by myself, it was originally align left. I have been thinking about making the username and avatar center with the from, posts, etc. fields align left.

And I actually like the submit button where it is but if there is a huge outcry, I could change it.

Thanks.
