Maybe my eyes are not as good as some but I just thought I would mention that the dark blue words on top of light blue background is a little hard to read. I do like a lot more contrast.

I'll see what I can do. I might be able to make the default posting font a little larger pretty easily.

I'm testing a new template.

This one allows you to resize the font.



Looks like it toggles 3 different sizes, sort of like small, medium & large.

The control is located in the upper right corner of the page.

I know it costs money to keep a site like this running... but an advertisement after EACH post? Wow...

And having the poster's info on the right saide is.. wierd. I'm so used to seeing it on the left. Change is good though, right?

Are you planning a nice fancy forum logo or graphic in the future?

re: the Amazon ads - just experimenting Dave

In two years I've "earned" $2.19 from them! They'll pay me when I reach $100.00 in earnings. Still, I want to find a way to better integrate them on the site and display products that I feel good about recommending.



--------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm getting used to this new layout and yes, I should come up with a better logo.

Someone suggested I should go with a red color scheme. Let me hear your ideas.

Well, as far as a color scheme, since this forum isn't color-specific w/ a particular product, maybe it could be up to the user to choose how he/she wants it to look. Is there an option that users could set in their control panel to pick the color scheme they like? Most forums have a "default" color scheme, but then you can change it based on a few choices in a drop-down list. Is that an option for this new forum software?

And as far as the ads go, a $1/year profit isn't much to talk about (or count on). That means that you'll get a check in what? 98 years?

Most of the other forums I belong to keep the advertising at the bottom of the page, or the bottom and in the middle. PLUS, they have sponsors who get a half-wide little banner at the top of the pages, and in return the sponsors contribute some money to the site. And, of course, there's always the possibility of getting donations from members to help keep the forum going.

As for a logo, you just need a few minutes in Photoshop to throw something together....

All it needs is maybe some silhouettes of some Class B's in the background, huh?



And that's just using your color scheme (blue) for now. It could have any colors in it, different font files, sizes, effects.....


On a different note, can't we upload our own avatars?
