New Theme: Active

Yes, I’ve activated the 3-column theme I created last week. Expect the sidebar on the right to be populated with additional stuff in the coming days.

Feedback is appreciated.

  1. SUH-Weeeeet!! It’s lookin’ (mostly) good. I’ve already told you how I feel about TNR font.

    Red, or just about any shade thereof, works draw me in!

  2. How’s this for feedback, beyotch?

    That’s some quality feedback, right there. Two things jump out at me: the Search textarea is too big (Duh) and the padding on the unordered lists in the sidebars is hella messed up. I’m pretty sure that neither of those showed up in Firefox under Windows.

    Shit! I’m typing too fast and posting too quick! ‘works draw me in’ … What the hell does that mean? I need to be able to edit my own posts after I submit them!

    I tweaked the stylesheet. Since I don’t have access to a Linux b0x0r at the moment (or Firefox, for that matter), I really don’t know whether the issues have been resolved.

  5. Feh,

    Remember to keep it simple. I don’t need too much information on any one page, it takes too damn long to load on dial-up. Then again, I’m not known for running six apps and ten IE windows either.

    Izzat some kinda pink highlights in the comments? I don’t need to remind you that my comments look terrible in pink, do I? Clashes with my prepositional phrases.

    Keep tweaking. You’ve got enough creativity to make it aesthetically pleasing to most, yet wonderfully functional without pushing the weak into sensory overload.

  6. Lay off the peaches, man. Lay off the peaches.

    I dunno, the Georgia peaches in his neighborhood have some of the silkiest southern drawls in the entire South. It must be something else. Maybe the figs.

    Pink? Where are you seeing pink? Every other comment has a light grey background, just like in the old theme.

    Did I stutter?
    The sidebars are indeed gray. The quicktag shading is the same gray. The highlights of the alternating comments are, on this machine, clearly not. As a male I describe it as a subtle, yet noticeable shade of light, or if you prefer, faded, pink.

    A more feminine member of the human race may have a descriptive term, perhaps “Occluded Periwinkle”. I do not.

    I may indeed have differing results on another machine. Your other readers/posters may also. On this machine, pink.

    Very interesting. I have witnessed this phenenomenon first hand, as the background on the comments do, indeed, appear faintly pink on Gator’s laptop (as he sits behind me, it’s fairly easy to check). On my laptop, the color is definitely grey. Perhaps you both have somewhat effeminate computers?

    The hex code in the stylesheet is “#f8f8f8”, which is equal parts red, green and blue (and thus, not pink or even occluded periwinkle). It is precisely the same color that was used in the previous theme. The sidebar background should be a very similar color, though I use the name “whitesmoke” as opposed to the hex code (#f5f5f5) in that case.

  10. Perhaps you both have somewhat effeminate computers?

    Considering the history of this machine, quite possible, yes, quite.

  11. mine might not be effeminate, but it sure sucks…….old computer….need to upgrade….

    On my machine I would say it is more of a salmon color….

    Maybe yer ‘pooters belong to George “Sulu” Takei.

    Maybe all y’all are colorblind?

    “all y’all”? Hmmm. Nah, it doesn’t work for you… Git back up to the sticks whence you came. G’won now!

    Just because your eyes weren’t any good when they were in the pig’s head…

    Survey sez… anywhere from a faint reddish hue to lght pink.

    On my other machine, two slightly different shades of gray.
