Re: Changes Made to this Board's Design & Future Plans


I decided to add a faded background image to the sidebar from a custom dungeon room tile.

Anyone, let know what you think. I personally think it might be good to make the image even lighter, but, the hover effect on the links does help to quickly clarify the link text.

A bit, yes. Either that or make the links stand out more(?)

Looks nice. You can use it for the main board header maybe, with the blue bar for section headers.

Re: Changes Made to this Board's Design & Future Plans


I have lightened the sidebar background image even more now. I think it is better for readability now. I am willing to adjust it more if needed.

I will keep the suggestion in mind about using the same dungeon tile/color for the separator, but I think for the time being, I will take a break from any additional work on the backgrounds and colors. I know from experience that there is no end to adjusting the colors and style of everything in a message board. Of course, if people tell me they don't like something -- and more of them too -- I will more likely change it. emoticon

I need to spend some time playing WHQ! emoticon

There is still the matter of implementing a delay for the drop-down/expand effect of the sidebar divisions, but it currently does not work with IE. Still, it would be nice to have for anyone using other browsers. By delay I mean keeping the dropdown list open for some seconds before retracting again, instead of immediately retracting when the pointer is moved away.

EDIT: I do have the code for the above-mentioned, but as always, I must carefully test elsewhere to make sure it does not break this board.

most of my posts may run into essay length. I find that for a lot of queries/feedback context is important and that is why this happens more often than not.

have a great day :D
