PostSubject: two suggestions...   Sun Jun 24, 2012 2:58 pm

Hello, I looked into the forums a bit, and might wanna make some suggestions.

Change some of the font colors: First off, this layout could have potential but not when it have fonts that blend in the background (Such as the black reply and the lavender text) since the black reply blends in the black background, and the lavender text blends in with the galaxy. It bothers me a bit that I have to see the text with my mouse.

Add some off-topic section: I've been in certain forums that have off-topic threads. Sure, this is a development forum, but there could be some spicing up by adding off-topic sections such as these...

Random, AKA the joke section: There is a humor in the about me after all, so why not make a joke section to bring some humor to the section? especially a forum game section to add even more fun by making forum games during their free time. Note: I'd suggest to turn off post count so that way if they spam random things, their post count doesn't go up. But for people who might be under 18+, I'd say keep it PG-13 rated.

Rant section: Sure, we have our bad days/weeks/months whatever, we might need a rant section to vent out our bad times, we might give them pity, some advices, or harsh feedback about their day. But I'd say put a rule to don't overdo it, trust me, in the past, I've done due to my attitude back then, it got everyone agitated to the point they banned me for it, which I deserved for it.

Gaming section: We're all gamers here as developers, right? So why not add a game section so we can discuss the games we liked or currently played?

Well, these are my suggestions. Maybe you agree with this, maybe you may not, but these are my thoughts.

These are all good ideas! I really think there should be a font color change

I had a really tough time building this theme because of the color dichotomy, so I totally agree with that. We usually switch themes about every year, so we'll probably be switching soon.
we discussed having an OT section before, but decided against it. It would be counterproductive and look unprofessional.

Ah, that's understandable, I guess if you do make those kinds of OT, it would be another typical forum instead of a developer's forum. As for the theme, hopefully couple months, or next year would be better, because I have a rather tough time looking at this forum.

Thanks for the feedback.

I'll figure something out. In the meantime, deal with this for a day or two.

It's quite all right, it may cause some problems. (Light green text blending in with the text) But overall, it's okay. Maybe some borders could help, just in case.

The fact that this is a perrenial topic around here amuses me. Of course, unless I decide to start painting cells or something, my comments here are not constructive. For what it's worth, I can read both iterations, but I do have 20/20 vision.
