Hit your profile and select subBlack.  It isn't classic GG, but that was intentional.  This is beta and some stuff hasn't be implemented.  Drop your feedback in here and be honest but constructive please.


Way to go!

Looks pretty good, but I'll echo that the silver needs to be a bit less intense.

Thanks!

I know I'm a whiner around those parts, but WHOO-HOO on the subBlack theme! That'll definitely do for now!

Bravo on the fast work! biggrin

I think they mean the silver header bars.

Also, Jeff Jones, we have a thumbs up and thumbs down smilie. Click on the 'View more Emoticons' button for the full list of them. I think the forum software only supports 20 up front, but no limit to those on the clickable link.  thumbsup  thumbsdown

Oh, and Mike, even though I've been a subSilver fan ever since we fired up the forum here at CG, I do have to say, I love subBlack. Excellent work!

subSilver is the default theme that came with the PHPBB software, so he didn't have much to do with it slywink

I also completely missed the "more smilies" link.

Those bars are the thing, combined with the yellow text it's pretty much unreadable.

Overall, taking the brightness of any/all silver down a notch or two(maybe a kind of 'dirty' silver) would take care of the rest.

ah, you must've caught the brief moment where I tried the yellow text on the bars (shudder)

I have toned down the bars a bit and changed the header text color. drool

And my thanks to KD and the rest of the CG crew for being such gracious hosts. It's obvious that a great deal of time and effort have been spent on this site. It shows, and you all should be proud.

Now, if you can only find a way to make links inside of text be a different color, it would be perfect... smile

Edit - oddly enough, the links in my sig are a different color, yet the 'click here to see your thread again' doesn't have that feature.

Thank you, and everyone one else, for all the kind comments you've passed our way in these last few days. Console Gold really is a work of love, and it helps to see so many people appreciate all of our work on it.

you are referring to the 'here' on the page after you submit a post, right?  I have links turning a diff color in posts, but that setting for some reason eludes me

looks great...very nice work  thumbsup

one small comment though...
the white text on silver bars can be a little hard to read if the text is small.  for an example, look at the last silver bar at the bottom of a thread...you can barely see the words "Display posts from previous" before the option boxes.  that's a very minor issue though...otherwise a great theme.  thanks mike!

Did you change the link colors back to silver? I though the gold was great.

I'm referring to the ones on the Off-Topic area.

I'm with Hetz, I'm willing to help with front page PC news as well. smile  It was one of the things I offered to help with on GG (out of ...well...anything I could actually do), but everything was put on hold as Andy had said, and then this.  So. smile

Jeez, it's like a present day version of Battlestar Galactica around here.  The "ragtag fleet" of old GG'ers are heading to planet Console after planet Gone became...well...Gone.

Thanks for accommodating us KD.  It almost makes me feel bad when, about two years ago, I told you I didn't like Suikoden III because I had a thing against the anime style graphics of Japanese RPG's, and you kept telling me to give it a shot and it would change my mind (at least, I THINK that was you).   :lol:


Anyone have any definitive answers on the fate of gonegold?  I'd like to know Rich is okay.

Thanks GA, I admit, I became confused and kept trying the GONEGOLD site a couple of times a day as I thought it was just a temporary thing (which it may very well be...although that chance is getting slimmer by the moment).  

Now all we need is for hetz to start a morrowind thread and it's "home sweet home".

Nothing certain yet.  We could find out any time, but it is possible we won't have anything concrete for several more days.

Thanks blackhawk.  I'm not angry about the site going down, just concerned.  it's just really unlike rich and his gang and makes me think something happened that was beyond their control or a bad incident.

Maybe it's just me, but I can think of a lot of reasons Rich might need to make a clean break from Gone Gold.  Now that we know Rich is ok, I'm happy to assume that it was a decision in Rich's best interest until we hear otherwise.

I'm grateful to Rich for everything he did for me and the community.  Best of luck Chief.
