You should be viewing the new look for the ContentGenerator.net forum at the moment.

Do let me know what you think and - most importantly - anything you feel can be improved. This is the beta version where we can still make improvements. I think it looks great but I won't be able to have a proper look until this evening :)

This looks great, what a transformation.

It is much brighter and cleaner than the last one, and the graphics are superb.

I agree - a lovely clear and crisp look - very pleasing.

Glad people like it. I think it is a stroke of genius by the designer to create a mini-animated version of the logo that appears when a post is being updated. That really sets everything off fantastically:

There are a couple of minor improvements I want to see happen though - I think the 'add reply' etc. buttons are a bit too dark and clunky and I don't like the flipped background image of the logo that shows in the background of posts. However, minor issues on what is a fantastic piece of design work B)

We've had a few minor further improvements - the major buttons (like 'fast reply' and so on) are now slightly brighter and more svelt. The background images shown in each post are now more subtle. Minor improvements to what is already a great look for the forum.

Andrew

The buttons are an improvement and I also like the fact that the backgound images are now all facing the same way. But I'm not too sure about the background images more faded from one reply to another! (nit picky I know!!)

The reason the images are different is actually extending the concept from the normal look from the forum - there we have background colours on alternate posts. I didn't like the background flipped images plus they were too large. This is the designer's alternative and I think it works well. If the image was the same all the time there would be too much consistency and all the posts would end up looking identical. Now they just alternate from one faded image or a slightly more faded image. In my opinion this is better than before because it is smaller - the old large images meant even a short post could take up loads of space.

Just to say the forum has been upgraded this afternoon so we've temporarily lost the fabulous custom designed look - this will reappear asap I promise :blink:

You will not please all the people all of the time but I feel that you are on the right track with all your work so far, There is a consistancy of quality and clarity in all products. Keep up the outstanding work. :)
