New site theme....
« on: July 20, 2015, 11:08:05 PM »
Tryig to make the site a little more responsive/mobile friendly.

The old theme is not permanently gone, but we're going to try this one out for a little while...

Let me know if anything displays particularly oddly...

I like the new look!

Only initial critique would be that the 'News' bar is maybe a little difficult to read clearly, with the space graphic behind the lettering looking a little too noisy. If the text was a lighter shade, or if you reduced the opacity of the space graphic so that it is darker, the contrast between should be good.
I hate people generally, but I like them specifically - John Malkovich

All the links at the top are oddly spaced. Home Help and Game Info are pretty far apart.
Game Info and Search are closer together, but not overlapping.
Search and Media are also pretty far apart.
Media and Profile are pretty close together, but not overlapping.
Profile and My Messages are pretty far apart.
Messages and Links have the last letter 's' and the 'L' overlapping.
Links and Members are pretty far apart.
Members and Auctions & Sales are closer, but not overlapping.
Auctions & Sales and Logout have Sales and Logout overlapping. The first letter of each word is in the space location..

I'm on Win 7 Home Premium with SP1 and Auto Updates On using the latest version of Firefox. I double checked to make sure I didn't have Firefox set to magnify pages, it is at 100%. The links at the top don't look to have 'normal' spacing until I shrink things down to 67%, but everything else gets annoyingly small then. I would take a screen shot (is that the right word?) for you but I don't know how.
It doesn't seem to interfere with actually using the links though.
Other than that, I also like the new look.

You people with tiny monitors will be the death of me.... :P

not quite small enough to trigger the responsive/tablet view. but not wide enough for good spacing...  hrmm....   I'll think on what to do about it.

I am, however, noticing some icons (like the smileys) that need to be updated to remove a white border... ugh. I hate graphics.
