Restoring the Old Look...

Post by Blood of Nightmares » Apr 17th, 2010, 17:33

I don't if I should be asking this but as a request in terms of improving these forums, can you (either Daedolon/Daedalus/Dimebog) restore the old look of Postmortem with it's red & black consoles and especially the forum having alot more space (especially for posting larger pictures) than it does now (especially making the forum better for the eyes?)

Although the only thing you could keep the Kevin Kilstrom Caleb model/mortuary/cemetery logo on top (since it's a really awesome design but I think you make it more reddish/blackish to fit the original theme I guess or maybe even doing something entirely new) and maybe replace the white text logo with the old one?

You'll get the old look back at some point, my hands are just full and I'm trying to finish stuff asap.

The separation between posts isn't that clear right now I must say.

Jarmo already said that he would bring back the good old Postmortem.

Give the guy some time ^^.

I have faith in you Daedolon.

It won't be exactly as it was before, but very similar in look.

I have just a shitload of other things to do right now.

Well as long that the forum has a dark background that is easy for the eyes then I don't care (I wonder if you cooked up a fancier design?)

Not to mention expanding the size of this forum (like how it was originally) as well rather than being narrow like it is currently so larger pictures can fit in this forum.

Just take your time on it.

Hmmm...maybe this is just me but I like the way it looks now. True, I would like the posts more obviously separated. But I like this tan look compared to the black of the old way...that is to say I prefer how it is now to the archived version I just looked st.

I agree totally, black may be a typical color for Blood but it is the least fitting color for a website, very dull.

The archive doesn't seem to have the latest look before this, it was really good looking.
That being said, I don't mind this look either.

Sounds like your sadomasochists since the tan background actually hurts my eyes.

Maybe the forum could have multiple skin options to choose from to satisfy everyone's 'to each of their own' I guess.

Nah, too much contrast. The way it is now is perhaps not perfect but a whole lot better :thumbsup:
