Big Software Update Coming Soon and a new look

Postby D » Thu May 04, 2017 12:40 am

So I have been putting it off but the site is long overdue for a major software update ... hopefully any downtime will be minimized but the updates will require a whole new look .... so should we stick with the black and orange look we have had since 1999 or change to a with theme with black and orange accents?

My preference ... keep the same look. And the eyes.

I agree with WCJ. Old adage, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. This colour scheme seems to work.

you can't tell but it is broken and if I don't update it will only get worse. I won't be able to keep the exact same look but I think I'd be able to keep the colour scheme. Byeyes I think you mean the header logo graphic which yes I would be able to keep with either colour scheme

The black cat's eyes. Awesome.

Colour scheme. Black background = much easier on the human eyes. We will see what the people want.

Thanks, D.

IMO the tone of the site and the level of discussion have been first rate. :thup:

The colour scheme is fine the way it is.

My only suggestion is to implement something that is a high contrast appearance to aid with reading. Otherwise anything with some black and orange....Actually maybe a burnt orange as a tip of the hat to the Cardiac Kids of the 70s?

It's a great site with a great colour scheme. Thanks for doing it. The closer you can retain the 'look and feel' of this site, the better, so far as I am concerned. I'll look forward to whatever is produced.

Who's the software upgrade and new look for D? The site or you? :shock:

It's probable that the required (to keep up to date with security features) version update will result in losing features that are now obsolete--not an uncommon issue with sites that were created as long ago as this one was.

I see the switch to white background votes are currently losing to the keep the dark background. I voted to go to white, but after thinking about it, there are times when a dark background is easier to read, such as on a smartphone with the attendant variable light levels.

I think my little dig at my buddy D might've just zipped just a wee bit over your head BC1988. ;)
