    Trying Test 1 - bit of an Optimus Prime feel.

    The mobile option looks like it might be what some others have been wanting too.

    Trying Test 1. The bright pink is not good for the eyes.

    Welcome back, great that we didn't lose more than a week.

    Not a fan of Test 1, too intense.

    icons down from where they are and perhaps run them across the bottom like the New Posts PM's etc? I think they tend to get lost where they are now.
    That was one of the three layout customisations of the old board that the new software didn't like, so I have to figure out all over again how to move those things around. I just wanted to get our banner up there as a priority so that guests and members knew for sure that we were back... and then try to fix up the mess it caused later.

    It was a 5 minute rush job, that was trying to get a bit of red and dark blue, as a good vs evil type of mix... to see how it looked, but I did notice that the lighter shades ended up being a bit pink and light blue.
    There are soooo many visual elements on here that have their own colour settings... it could take days to fine tune something decent.

    I will try to spend some time over the weekend on it. I was originally thinking of having several visual options for members, like a good/autobot theme and an evil/decepticon theme, or maybe a beast theme... but after thinking about how long it would take to do just one colour scheme, I realised that fansites have signature colours, so if we want members and guests to recognise our site by sight, I think we need to focus on one colour scheme (and try to bring back the background grid pattern image).

    Test1 is better. But still not great. I think we need something more distinctly not American (red white and blue). I?d actually like a dark theme but not fussed.

    It burns... It burns...

    I'd prefer darker tones for mobile reading at night.

    totally agree with this, and I think a slightly darker tone would work better for night time viewing. I'm personally less likely to read on my phone during the day.

    If only there was a way you could go into your mobile phones display settings and change it to night mode...

    Great job Griffin getting the site back up! It will take time to optimise it but at least we have a site again.

    I mostly use the site on a phone and am finding it harder to use given the logo at the top of the page goes wider than the rest of the front page, making the text really small. If you can look into how to resize the logo to fit the page that would be much appreciated please.

    Yeah. Griffin, could you resize the banner logo to half and move the black border from the bottom to the top and move the 'SINCE 1996' text to the left? I can do it and PM it to you if easier
    .
    Which brings us to where we are today...
