WHATCH OUT with those emoticons! Most of them might be licensed!!!


Hmm.. good idea.. how would we check? I wouldn't put them in the default emoticons list either (only if you hit "View more emoticons")

Well, depends where you got the emoticones from. If they came from Smileys Xtra (the firefox plug) the site of the project says where all the emoticones came from.

The font i believe is fine as it is.

As for adding more emoticons, i would be against this as they can easily end up overpowering a thread if used too much. There is also the issue of longer load times for dial-up users.

One gripe i do have is that the definition between post and signature needs to be clearer. At present some peoples sigs look like they are part of the reply.

AS for the site colors, i beleive that the black background is good but the definition of the white text can be very harsh on users eyes. One thing i have done is to change the white text to an off-white of light grey. For examples of backgrounds to text please find this link> http://queen.rett.polimi.it/~ant/webutils/140colors.html

Other than this i do like the site Image

Ok you need to open the 'Viewtopic.php' file and search for this line: -

Code:
$user_sig = '_________________<br />' . str_replace("\n", "\n<br />\n", $user_sig);


Replace the _________________ with something else or just increase the size of it to make it clearer. If you add the < br > (no spaces) tag in front of it you should be able to add another line too.

Hope that helps. Any php questions just pm me :) On my fifth forum creation now :!:

Oooopppps sorry :oops:

How about changing it to something like "---------" as this would sit in the center and not right against the signature.

Well, anyone got any other suggestions for new graphics? I went through the EZboard archives yesterday and thought maybe we can have little star wars icons (heads?) next to our names.. for example Thrawn would have a little blue guy next to his name.

Also, maybe we can offer some more avatars? Shrunk down pics from Rebellion Reloaded would be appropriate, don't you think (since it is after all ours and nobody's gonna sue us for that :P)?

Good luck for finding 3200 little heads.
Exept if you want to find a system where you receive a little head only after you will have made a certain amount of posts.

Well, you guys could always just build your own emoticons.

As for the color scheme, how about having different skins in say the user options, with several different color schemes. That way each individual user could see the site they way they wanted to.

I was wondering about the that as well. But it may be a bit complicated to set up.

Normaly depends on how many mods the site is running! Subsilver or subblack may be the default used and all the mods coded to that. If you want to bring in another template afterwards it will require what can be a major update for the new template. Without this the mods you have on the site will not work.
Not an easy job if you have quite a few mods or changes.
