    Well, I'm not sure how to start this topic out so I'll just get right into it. Daniel mentioned changes for the site but what kind? Design? Rules? Overall changes? You can also give your opinion on it but there will be no mention of ponies in this. (Yes I'm referring to you Tres.) Only slight changes I've made is the background and I added a new Vault icon in. But there's not much that I can do left for the site with its design.

    Since I'm not a techy person, I'm hoping somebody can help us edit the design and try to get things rolling again. I've done the most I can do for the site so I'm counting on you for support. Lets get some ideas up and ready!

    - Rhys

    hrm well i suppose it depends on what you want? i don't see much wrong with the site as is, maybe a little more making it match with its self color-wise. I'd have to see what the tools for editing look like to know what all can be done. I may make a board myself just to see what they are and then let ya know. sound good?

    Alrighty i went and look and not sure if this matters but what one of these did you chose or was it even set up the same when you made this site.. um.. amusing you made the sight.. i have no idea >< dunno if they have different controls or what.


    here's a screen-shot of the choices.

    It does indeed, and yeah I was thinking editing some of the colors to match with the background better. Want me to make you a temporary admin so you can play around with it?

    And I didn't make the site, the site owner Trespasser did.

    True. Take all the time you need. We'll have to keep the site active still in the meantime.

    alright small tips that don't need lots of skill would be:
    1) take the black box off from around the logo
    2) make the text in a quote box darker, or leave it the same and make the quote box darker
    its a bit hard to read.
    3) add more blue with white highlights, or white with blue highlights

    as long as the colors match the logo and the backgrounds you should be fine.
    but really the sight looks just fine.

    i think if it needs anything its matching and maybe some subtle artistic smoothings more than coding know how. some times its the little things that make a big difference.

    Man the interface for editing is so convoluted and mismatched. ><

    i tried to find the same background you have here for comparison but couldn't.
    so i got something similar.

    with this idea I went for bright and simple. there are better ways and i plan to make a few more samples.
    http://happy.forumotion.com/
    the sonic forever text would look much better on the background you have here over the one i scared up but at least you get the idea.
    i can do something a bit more fancy too but i do like simplicity especially for this being just a sample

    Oh alright. I still need to learn a few things in the Admin Panel but I'm hoping you could do something with it. So I'll make you a temporary admin so you can play around with some things. I know you're new but the site could use all the help it can at this point.

    I honestly can't help much here. Admin Panel is a bit confusing for me.

    I haven't been used to using it but I know some basics for icons, making forums, groups, and colors.

    I thought so as well. It kinda fits. I'm thinking of eventually recreating the banner by adding Classic Sonic in.

    I've come up with a few banner ideas.
    here's some
    any tips or ideas are welcome





    i'll make some more and add them here as edits

    also i had a slight minor change idea that would make some viewing less painful, and that's to turn the link colors to black like normal text.
    if you need a tutorial on that i'll put it here
    Spoiler:



    ohoh alright I'm making a tutorial on how to change the menu bar!
    Spoiler:

    alrighty step 1.
    this is important if you just want the images and you want them to be their original sizes.

    the last step is to save, sorry it got cut off
    Don't do step one until you're ready for step 2 though cause then you wouldn't know what to click on the site when you wanna do menu stuff

    Also doing it the way i'm about to show you won't let the images touch for some reason, so my first idea of what would be neat is kinda out

    step 2

    You could do it with advanced mode too, but i just picked one because its easy to tell what corresponds with what.


    alrighty this one takes some explaining.
    I'm going on the assumption you haven't done this before.

    see the highlighted area? each word is a link.
    The one that says portal will replace the word portal in the menu bar if you follow step one.
    And just keep going until you've filled each slot that's important. I'll make a list of whats important here in a bit and give you some images that could be fun yo use.
    though i'm sure they should all be replaced if any are.

    index=home

    If you just want a small image next to the text that already exists then skip step one.

    If you don't want the background of the bar to be green let me know and I'll make another quick tutorial

    Woooooooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So that's what you've been doing lately. Nice job!!!!!! I like the first banner idea you came up. Maybe if you could make it more wider it would be perfect. As for the whole color and index/portal/etc. image ideas, that will take me a bit of time to figure out.

    If you need somebody who you can assign basic administrative changes to to, I can help a bit. I can fool around on my forum to figure out what, say, the hypothetical "Example" option changes and figure out how this can help me with the job I've been assigned.

    That's up to you. I don't think the site will need much of a change after we fix the banner and toolbar. Thanks for offering at least. See what you can do.
