Suggestion. [SOLVED]

Post by ellajohnson on Fri 17 Jan 2014, 02:36

Hi everyone,
Before any talking I would like to thank everyone on this site that spend their time helping others What he said.
Thanks to everyone
anyway so I had a very small suggestion that not everyone might not be thinking that way.
Suggestion: Can anybody change the background of this site?
I mean here is such a BRIGHT site but the background is black.
It's kind of depressing.
I hope nobody finds this offensive.
thnx in advance

Hello there,

Yes, I get your idea. And it's not offensive. Razz 

But you should keep in mind that by choosing a "color theme" (for a website) you also want to make the font color(s) contrasting to the background color: This basically means that your font color(s) are then clearly visible and readable. For example, here you'll find many important notices in "red" font color, which meansd that the highlighted text is important. Not all background colors create this contrast between "red" and "black". Of course, to some extent it's a matter of taste (too), but I personally find this background 'comfortable', in terms of readability.

Maybe the Admins will think about it though, but personally, I find the current setup still fitting. Smile  And thank you for the very nice words !

Hello again,
so u mean if they change the background they have to change the colour of texts too?
I wasn't trying to be mean by saying it depresses me but it kind of is.
If my suggestion is stupid just ignore but I noticed this since day 1 in here.
Thnx to everyone for your hard work

No, of course your suggestion isn't stupid. Wink

My personal opinion is that with this dark background, most currently available font colors "mix well". So the standard font color being white, it works well with the dark background. (I'd rather have a white text on a dark background, rather than a dark font color on a light background).

So I find that the dark background was a good choice.

But let's see what the Admins say about this. Smile

Hello,

I think Admin is rather attached to this background, it has always been this way.
On the "bright" side, the dark background colour is easy on the eyes. It's much nicer to view for extended period's of time than bright colours.

Thank you for your suggestion though, your reasoning makes sense and is nice to hear Very Happy

Hello there,

Indeed, sorry about that, I'm very conservative when it comes to that kind of stuff.  Facepalm Razz 
We decided to change it a long time ago, but I don't know what happened...?

And hey, we're here to listen and guide. Wink

Oh and, Lady ElDi is the big boss around here, she's just trying to blame someone else. (Me)

And I personally like this darker background too, because it's indeed easy on the eyes. And I somehow love the dark 'n orange design.  Twisted Evil
