Top job my mac buddy...... looks cool..... I find that it works okay in both (ie netscape) browsers, although I've not been super vigilant....... so I'll let you know if I have problems aswell!!!
Speaking of Apple rumor sites, I have a quick question (not sure whether it's relevant in this topic, but!!!) ........:
What made people choose Macrumors as their choosen discussion site??
I personally, although a newbie in terms of registering and posting, I've been following the site for quite awhile, I decided to join this forum as the people who were posted seemed really cool....... (okay I know you're all a fab bunch.... ) I felt like I'd known Eyelikeart, Alpha Tech, krossfyter, AmbitiousLemon, Hemingray, Beej, Macuser, Rower_CPU, Blakespot, and Mr arn for ages....... and you all (well most) seemed really intelligent....
Why did others join Macrumors instead of other Mac sites????
Thanks for you feedback guys!! I am glad that the majority like the style of my new site! I was thinking of doing the apple OS X style, but then that is what almost everyone has done...
Seems like the biggest problem is the color scheme! I created the site on my lombard machine and haven't had time to look at the colors on other machines. I know that my powerbook normaly shows brighter colors than normal, so the blue color should be darker on most machines. On my powerbook I can read the text fine... , but it's important that everyone can read the site. Question: Do many experience the blue color to bright and hard to read? or is the text to small!!! I think the text size is currently at 10 pixels and the headlines at 9pixels.
Appreciate all the feedback I can get!!!!
Regarding other forums... personally I use several sites as I don't find one site enough to answer all my questions... There are many other forums out there, i.e. macnn, macosx, this one, appleinsider, macworld...
I think I am a member of all of them! Personally I wanted to start my own forum as I love macs and that I think its fun to use forums. If someone wants to become moderators at my forum they are more than welcome to join.
the text size is perfect. it's only hard to read because the pale blue text blends in with the white backgrpound to some degree. i can read it but a darker blue would be better. but as i mentioned before i'd gowith another color altogether since many mac sites tend to a blue and kinda dull and boring. th world needs more color!
OK, thanks for your comments! I have now darkened the font a bit. Have a look and let me know what you know think? Is it too dark now? it's really tricky with colors... The colors look very different on an iBook, lombard and an apple CRT screen.
The darker text is much better, but still too small. I refuse to requent sites that won't let me adjust the size of the text (that's why I left the maccentral forums). I know it might ruin the layout when some idiot like me tries to view it at 1600x1200, but I'd rather be able to read it and have a messed up layout than to not be able to read it at all.
