The new look

Postby [violet] » Wed Jan 05, 2011 8:01 pm

From the News page:
Do Not Adjust Your Sets

After a month of beta and over 500 forum posts, the new theme is moving to default! This means the site looks confrontingly modern for anyone who hasn't been playing around with their Theme selector lately.

If the new look stirs within you a wild fury, don't fear! You can select "Antiquity" in your Settings for that old-school feel. Or visit us via http://antiquity.nationstates.net.

The login/logout buttons are up the top right. I put that in bold because after eight years you get used to things. We haven't removed the ability to log out. That would be cruel to your families.

This is a big change and I bet we broke a bunch of stuff. Please report any bugs you notice and we'll get those straightened out over the next few days. Expect things to move around a little.

Thanks to everyone who provided feedback and ideas! Special thanks to Unicario, who contributed graphics we wound up using. Anything you don't like: totally Unicario's fault.


Heh, Unicario posted in this thread before the news post went up. That'll learn ya.

I absolutely love the theme. It's awesome when I see the green globe of my design on the NS homepage. (I'm selfish...)

One small thing to report. The logout button works fine, except for when I'm in the forum.

If I try to log out while I'm in the forum this message comes up:

Uh... I liked it... until I got a problem.
It appears as though my flag had been cut off a bit... now, I didn't mind/care about that... until it quadrupled it size of course.

I would post the picture itself, but it's too large.
This only happens when I am in the forums. Any other part of the site has a normal sized flag...

EDIT: Also, I can not logout of my nation from the forums.

Whenever I try to logout of the nation I'm using at that moment and I'm browsing the forum, it gives me a report telling me I was not logged out, and the only way I can log out is if I use the switch button or revisit my nation page. A bug associated with the new look?

Logout problems go here --> viewtopic.php?f=15&t=89333

It's related in that it crops up whenever I update the forum, but not otherwise connected to the theme change.

It seems that the image has been completely fixed. Even the flag completely fits!
Thank you very much! :hug:
EDIT: Not exactly fixed anymore, but still... thank you for working on it. :)

Good work Uni, it's nice.

All in all I like it. The grey on the side where all the game options are is a little annoying, but that's probably just because I'm not used to it, I'm sure I'll adjust. Otherwise I think it's nice.

Green is awesome. But do you mean in the game or forums? Because I kinda agree that since just about everything in the forum is a link, we could do with less green here.

Both actually. The game and the forum are both green, so that's way too much green. Maybe change the colors of the forums, so that things are less green?

For what it's worth, I approve of green.
Nice change from all the blue and grey forums out there.

To me, the green is what helps the place stand out.

Like PQ says, green is kinda like NS's thing. It'd just look odd without the green.

I like how I can switch between the century theme and 'antiquity', but there should definitely be an option to do the really old theme.
If you ever have an RPing question, please TG me about it.
