As you can see we've made some new changes here on GDC. We've added a new more modern theme that I think looks pretty awesome.

You can click on the paint brush on the top right to select one of 4 different backgrounds of your choosing.

Still stuff to do. Leave all suggestions in the comments below :)

Maybe we could have the option to use the old theme if we want to? I find the new one really difficult to read and find things.

No sorry. It was time to retire the old one. I'm willing to continue changing this one to make it what we want, but I say please give it a chance at least before saying you are having a difficult time with it.

One of the things that needs to be put in. Andres is working on finalising stuff :)

Great job, I really like it! But I need to get used to the usernames and thread titles being white (well, in the dark theme) on the community index… maybe add some (signal) color to them again? It makes it a lot easier to see the 'important' things first when the rather not-so-important stuff (for example ''last post a minute ago'') is white/grey.

I believe Andres is updating the white skin so just wait a bit.

Unfortunately no but it's not like we can do anything about that. Plus it looks better with a plain background.

They're actually above profile pictures at the moment. Wait a bit and things will be back to normal :)

Someone turn the light back on! :lol: I thought clicking on the paint brush would make the theme look like the old light theme, oh well.

I quite like this one actually! It's not that dark and well, pretty awesome :) Needs some getting used to.

It looks nice (better than the old dark skin, from what I remember), but I'm happy the light skin is still there and the same!

The new skin's pretty good, I could go with this over the light theme, not sure yet.

Criticism:

  • I think the background selector should drop down from the header, not at the top of the page, right now it's just confusing if you click it while scrolled down.

    That means put div#toggle_background in the div#branding.


    Increase div#ipbwrapper padding-top with the same amount of pixels as div#toggle_background's height with the same animation speed to make it perfect.

  • This one's probably personal and very nitpicky, I don't even really know why it bothers me. But I think GDC's logo skulls look odd when transparent and overlaying other stuff, it becomes messy looking (example I'm looking at while typing right now: http://i.imgur.com/hccz8mW.png )
    I'd try giving them the dark grey color they have when overlayed on black and no transparency, maybe a tad of black shadow/glow under them to make the logo stand apart better on any background.

Good suggestions. I made those changes.
