On my browser it's not as easy to differentiate between bold and non-bolded, so I preferred having a badge. If the badge stays gone, I'll SOMEHOW manage to continue living though. :wackywink:

It's awesome that you guys are revamping the forum and design.  Currently all the theme designs are so old and heavy.  How about some nice flat design, modern, less strokes and drop shadows. 

It's not about badges and countdown timers (that fall so far below the fold they never get seen) it's about easily finding our way to content, answers and contests.

    Hi haam

     

    thanks for taking time to make a point. Yes,we are aware of pretty much everything. But we can't do much,because there are restrictions by our knowledge of coding for web and there are not much themes out there for this version of IPS,but we are going to introduce one completely new theme this or next week for sure. We also considering to hire someone to make everything from scratch,that way we would have so much more control over forum design etc.

     

    Cheers,

    Igor

    Igor - No problem!  I love the cafe, I'm just an opinionated old designer lol!  

    I always have an issue with the 3D community. It seems like once most of my fellow 3D Generalists leave the 3D environment (i.e. websites, print, branding) they forget to make things look as beautiful as they do in their scenes! No to mention, like you said, this and most forums are set up without the ability to make pretty.

    Anyway, I wish you guys good luck.  Here's some (vanilla) inspiration! http://themesteam.com/cube/

    We love this Cafe and community for sure and we have some neat plans for the future,but we need time to make everything ready etc. 

    Closest to theme you provided is this one https://community.invisionpower.com/files/file/7726-haze-by-ips-themes/ ...would this be something you could look at? :)

    ABSOLUTELY!  That's lovely, organized, easy to read and very modern.  I have a feeling we're in good hands!

  • I dont really like either of the new themes... 

     

    but in the last 1 or 2 days, something changed with the "default" theme, which is the one i like most. The text seems to have gotten very grey, and now there is not enough contrast between it and the background. Could someone maybe change that?

     

    [edit]: just looked again: ips support (default) works well and looks nice. 

    Hi Vozzz

     

    did you able to try NEW theme we introduce few days ago? :)

     

    Cheers,

    Igor

    Hi Igor,

    You are talking about the ipbForo? its nice. Just the white 1px strokes everywhere are a bit strong i think. if they where darker, or simply removed i think it would look much cleaner. 

    But i do like it. its pretty easy on the eyes. 

    maybe make the edges, the same as the background color? ( as in screenshot here)

    What about now? I spend few hours and still trying to make it as clean as possible.
