This actually isn't the Dark Rift thread; it's for the older Century Dark theme. However, Dark Rift is listed as just "Dark" in your Settings.

"Century: Dark" is two below "Dark" in the list.

I'm not sure if this is just me, or if this has been addressed but, as a user of the dark rift theme, when I want to lodge a message in a regional message board, it doesn't; just refreshes the page and shows what I wrote in the space I write my message in.

The same happens on the regular rift theme.

I tried on older themes and it works fine.

Dark Century Theme and the new features

Postby Lamebrainia » Mon Feb 29, 2016 11:56 pm

Hello everyone.

The new features presented by the recent update seem to have slightly broken the Dark Century Theme, which, as far as I'm concerened, has been in need of an overhaul for a very long time.
1) The login button is almost invisible now.
2) Images on issue pages stand out too much, being white and all.
3) Settings update button seems to be out of place (compare to plain Century).

The 1%/5%/10% category titles don't seem to fit into either Century variety.

Would it be too much to hope for it to get fixed? Or is Rift the true way, and I should simply move on?

I am otherwise very happy with the update, and I'd like to thank everyone involved for implementing it.

Howdy. I'm the player who edits/updates both dark themes. Just as sort of an FYI, the best way to get my attention is to go to the particular dark theme thread in my signature. (I only decided to browse Technical today because the forums are very very very slow for me for some reason).

Anyway, damn, those issues you pointed out were some things that I missed.

1.) Yeah, I see what you're talking about. I've seen this particular issue before a few years ago, so it shouldn't be a problem to fix. (Unfortunately, I've got a fair amount of stuff on my plate right now, so I'll get to it as soon as I can).
2.) Looks like some of the image files got shifted around in the update. The top of the newspaper should point to "https://www.nationstates.net/images/dpaper1dark.jpg" but it's pointing to "https://www.nationstates.net/images/newspaper/dpaper1.png". The same situation goes for the bottom. IIRC, [violet] might have to fix that one.
3.) The settings update button always looked out of place when compared to Century. Century makes the settings page look like an old document. Since that doesn't apply to Century: Dark, I've had to alter that button to make it not stand out.

Dear sir,

thank you very much for taking note of my other thread. I'll move my commentary over here, so that it's easier for you to keep track of things.
I am not often a visitor to the forum, so I'd like to apologise for not putting it where it belongs initially.

1) The login button is almost invisible now. Maybe apply class="button1" to it?
2) Images on issue pages stand out too much, being white and all.

The same situation goes for the bottom. IIRC, [violet] might have to fix that one.


If there's anything I can help you with, please let me know. I'm a web-developer by trade.

P.S. I can see you are working on the badges at the moment. Do you think transparent ones are better than the previously used white? I personally find the latter less taxing on the eyes.

NationStates Century Dark Theme

Postby Parhe » Thu Jun 30, 2016 10:11 am

May I please make a suggestion? I was wondering if we could have a change in colour for the "World" trend line in comparisons, like here. It is a bit hard to distinguish from the background in both Century and Rift. Sorry if this was already covered, I tried searching and did not find something.
Hey, it is Parhe :D I am always open to telegrams.
I know it is a Work-In-Progress, but I would love it if y'all looked at my new factbook and gave me some feedback!

After poking around with it for a bit, from what I recall, it's not a change that I can make through CSS. It's probably something that can changed on [violet]'s end.

Oh, okay, thank you for the response! I will make a thread in Technical asking about it once I get home later :) (sort of saying this here beforehand in case you already have or if I shouldn't for whatever other reason :P)

Minor issues with the Dark themes

Postby The Tofu Islands » Fri Sep 23, 2016 10:30 am

So there are a couple of annoyances with the Dark themes at the moment,

Firstly: in Century Dark, all the nation badges have had their colours inverted, which looks pretty bad. They're small enough that having them with a white background (as they are in other themes, including Dark) is fine, and the blue/pink of the figures on them when they're inverted looks a bit weird.

Secondly: in both Dark and Century Dark, the title for the trend graphs (as in /detail=trend?censusid=$n) has really low contrast. Putting it in white rather than dark grey would make things more readable.
In its majestic equality, the law forbids rich and poor alike to sleep under bridges, beg in the streets and steal loaves of bread.

Hooboy! I somehow didn't notice that this response was here.

The first point: Century Dark was the first iteration of those trophies and was implemented about 4 years ago; at the time, it only worked on Chrome and just stuck around once Firefox came onboard with implementing the picture inversion filters. Rift was more recent attempt at making the trophies blend into the background by just applying a (inverted) brightness filter over it. The fact that they're still different is an oversight on my part.

The second point: The graphs are a little tricky because their attributes are encoded directly into the HTML as opposed to being a stylesheet laid over the page, which is what I work with. That is something most likely on [violet]'s end.

Just to let you all know, I'm still working on this. I have just today noticed that there have been major changes to the WA pages, so a bunch of tables have bright backgrounds (heh, this is what I get for not having my main nation be in the WA!), so I'm taking a look at that and browsing through the site to see if there's anything else I've missed. Sorry folks!

This is still lingering about (and on the rank pages as well), even though issue-effect-page badges look the same as with normal theme (and thus Dark Rift). Any plans to sort out this problem in a future update?

Ah! Sorry for not responding to this sooner.

Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I mainly stick with using Dark Rift during my day-to-day browsing (well, whenever I actually get a chance to log in, lately). I agree; it does need to be changed to be consistent between the two themes.
