I've recently updated the forum software... the design changes are just temporary and I will have an Everton theme going shortly!

If anyone has any problems.. this is the place to put it

If anyone has any suggestions for colour schemes...

I like these two..

http://evertondirect...=180&quality=95 <-- This shade of blue

or

http://evertondirect...=180&quality=95 <-- This one?

I'm leaning towards the latter

If they are the choices I would prefer the first myself. But I think there is not a lot to chose between them. I am not much of a one for suggestions though. I usually suggest something either truly awful, or just plain stupid.

How about the old 'salmon pink' and royal blue stripes?

Or perhaps Blue and yellow? The post box is white anyway.

It'll take me a while to get it right, I'll offer some choices in colour schemes.

I think making it work properly is the most important, then followed by making it easy, then and only then, making it look good.

Just my opinion mind you, I think you all do a fair job at it anyway.

I am not much of a one for changes until it is all done and dusted. So I suppose my opinion is not that important. (Especially as I do not post as much as many others)

My first impression is that it does'nt look like a footy forum, it looks like some business advertising page all grey and sombre.

There is no seperation between the Pinned Posts and the rest of the Threads.

Ive noticed when editing you cant preview the post, I like to see if its right before i post it.

But its not finished yet so i'll hold back my thoughts until it is.

I'm leaning towards the latter colour also Louis. :)

Either colour for me....not overly bothered...people will get used to it before long. As long as we get the TT logo back asap :) .

OMG - Change the logo...quick. It looks bad. Looks like it used to rely on a white background to give it the right effect.

It's taking me awhile to get used to this, but here is my views.

Good Points:-

Recently viewed threads- really good little addition
Quicker access to Fast Reply- very good

Bad Points:-
General Layout things- but i completly understand that this is going to change so its not really a huge issue,
would be good if pinned threads and general threads are split like before

as for colours, i much prefer the second option.

I would advise everyone to go to the bottom of the front page and click "Mark Board as Read" as at the moment it will think you have not read anything, it looks much better then and you can actually start seeing what is new content again.

Think the lines seperating all the threads and topics (table ?) should be coloured either a pale blue or pale yellow/gold. its only a very thin hairline but it would give the site the colour its missing. The forum headers are almost black, have we not got a royal or a navy blue.?? Nice work Louis.

Fast reply is better and quicker and I like multiquote. The yellow is great too. Sexy layout in the making. :P

What's this look like as a base?

I'm thinking about moving the

[Forums....Search] bar above the logo like we used to have it. Any thoughts?

Still think it needs a divide between the pinned topics and the rest of the forum topics.

Still thinks it also needs the line between the light grey and dark grey topics and posts putting in, either pale yellow/gold or pale blue.
