The colours look shocking seriously... orange and black? Why on earth did you ever consider such a shocking duo. The robots at the top... disgusting. GAME SITE?!

I think if we try to model it to look more like the Evony game interface, it will be more user friendly ... colors, styles, etc.

The black background and orange / red is a little difficult to navigate.

That said - LOVE the idea, just need to make it work for us.

If cheese chose this design because it was simply a design package to choose from then I understand why its red on black. I have designed many full blown web sites for past mmo guilds, Wow Warhammer just to name a few, so I know what a pain it is to create a new website or forum. I had 0 experience when I created my first so I had to do a lot of googling just to figure out how to go about it. And I am still learning. So lets just be creative as well as constructive. It does cheese no good to just state I hate the colors. If you have an opinion or a comment about the looks you need to follow it up with a reason why you don't like it then give some suggestions on how to improve it. Now on to my own personal thoughts concerning the looks of the forums.

I do agree the colors are a bit off putting. The color red on a black background makes words hard to read. So if you decide to keep a dark background try a color that's not so harsh on the eyes. White, Aqua, and gold look good. If you go for a light background then choose dark font colors. I like the idea of using Evony's color scheme but I don't think we should directly copy it. After all it should have our own twist to it. Also a cool banner would make all the difference. I will play around with photoshop in the next few days and post a few banners for you to choose from if you want them. But I will need to know what banner size the forum calls for. And if members would like to help then post some suggestions as to what kind of graphics or images they would like to see on the banner.

the banner is 600*150 Smile
hmmm well the current plan was for the background to go form black into a green/blue colour as it goes down, something similar to a Kronos/Tartarus theme
the red writing seemed like a good compliment to that, but since alot of people are complaining i guess i should brighten it up sometime
(on my screen the red seems fairly distinct so its hard to tell what colours would go well)

Hmm Herra you've given me an idea! In the coming week I'll mail the alliance and announce it though I'll create a banner making competition for the alliance. The victor shall receieve some goodies from the host/vice-hosts and shall get some nifty title for a little while. Smile

Good job on the banners too, pretty good.
