What Do You Think Of the New Blue?

I know you've been working hard, Lincoln, but... I hate it. Sorry.
It makes it look like the other forum, "Buddhism Is". Is that one yours, too? Could we have a different color? Can we vote? Is there a dark red, like a Buddhist color? Anything but blue, please. Just my opinion. :-/

It's nice to have the avatars fixed, though.

  • P.S. With the pink lotus, maroon or purple might look nice. Whatever. We do appreciate your hard work.

    I care more about substance. Whatever Lincoln wants color-wise is great with me. I just appreciate all of his work.

    @Jason.....

    ...huh...?
  • It was a bit of a shock when I first arrived but that was only because I had expectations.

    I didn't realize that some attachments can be so subtle until I saw the bright blue. I consider it a lesson learned..
  • Did that really happen?

    I was referring to the colour, which was changed during the massive theme rewriting project @Lincoln undertook from blue back to the original not long after this thread was created.

    I was here for that moment as well. Gratitude for putting into words what I took away from it.

  • It was a bit of a surprise, kind of like a change of haircut on somebody you know well. But if you live with monks or nuns, that will not really matter :om:
  • This looks like it's back to normal, isn't it? This is the way it's been for years, prior to recent changes? this looks great. It's nice to be home. :)

    Many thanks to @Lincoln. On the ball, as ever. A round of applause. :clap: :clap:

    For what it's worth, I don't think Lincoln intended to the colour to remain blue. Rewriting the theme design just takes a lot of time and code, and everything doesn't necessarily fall into place all at once, so it was probably just a temporary thing until he was able to restore the original colour.
  • I don't see any blue

    It's gone, now, he fixed it. Turns out it was a temporary glitch that appeared briefly over the weekend.

    It was your browser's cache. You were getting new markup + old stylesheets.

    Yeah, I rewrote NewBuddhist's forum theme over the weekend to vastly simplify it without changing the visible style much at all. :) Sorry for the confusion.

    Does that mean our contracts need reviewing....?

    I haven't had a proper tea break for 5 years...... :D
