as I mentioned at a different post, I am going to be publishing a version of the template for people to revamp it at their own will. We came out with this design very much in line with the rest of the website, also trying to make it inviting to different types of audiences. I can anyway understand your concerns when it comes to a design not fitting your needs.
BTW, I am trying to read inbetween lines the terms you are using. I guess where you said "stupid design" you meant something like "I would have made it differently", right? Because "stupid" is among the way of describing others' work that I could list as offensive.
I know that it gave some work, but really, orange and white, thats a lot of contrast..
Cowjam,thats not the stock forum colors...
Its much more like this:
And now, I wont change my contrast to read this forum, that now as a ton of different sections, dont really know why, but now I can burn now my mouse wheel much faster lol, maybe its a matter of taste but I hate long forums, it just seems that each post is a different section...
I'm not asking for something, I'm doing a simple suggestion, and well if people are blind enought to pay for over-priced boards why wouldn't they just use a pretty strange forum.
The side bar is more of a pain, no java script for the forum and its way faster, but I think I will rest my case here and just stop comming here, if a effing blinky is more awesomme than an arduino doing fft bye bye.
