Just a quick question, what resolution is everyone using when they browse the web these days?

I am continuing where I left off on revamping the homepage/site and need this information for design purposes, thanks!

Also, if your resolution is not on here pick the one lower one that is close to yours

EDIT: please take a look here

Is there a chance for FreeSpacey layout of the Forum and website?

thread merged

We will think about it. Right now there are some more fundemental things that need to be done/fixed but a style revamp is on the "to do" list

I'd suggest some good starfield in the background, FreeSpacey "Game-Warden v2.0" with cool Orion destroyer in background :pimp:

Also lots of hosted projects need archiving. I also want to suggest to move hosted projects boards to the up side of the Forum.

Useful thing might be also showing off urls to the active projects website somewhere where they're visible.

Maintaning news, galleries and stuff on the website might be cool, it can bring some attention to this site.

I'd make sure it works with 1024 horizontally, netbooks tend to have that as a normal res.

I can guess a few that need it, but just to make sure we are on the same page which ones are you thinking of?

Some active projects became just inactive? They need to be moved to inactive ones. Gundam Seed and other ones...

There'll be needed maintainers of news, galleries and etc. You really should perform some recruitment. Honestly, I'd love to do some job like that, but I'm not a native English speaker and my grammar might hurt some people's eyes when reading my texts :P

Well if you are offering I could definitely use some help. Same goes to everyone else.

Let me get everything functioning properly first, and then I will let you have at it

Can't wait :D
Also, I suggest importing all HLP smileys. ":D" looks bad compared to the HLP one for example ;)

1280*1024 on my main PC and 14xx*something crazy on my laptop. I'm not even sure.

I usually use my PC though.

OK Ive got a new style in the works and I would like some feedback
To see the new style go to the forum homepage (game-warden.com/forum)
go to the bottom left hand corner of the page and select the style "candidate2"
observe

Now this is just a prototype, but its something I have been toying with for a while. What do you think?

Now it hurts less my eyes, so it's better.
However, I'd change everything orange/yellow to Lightblue colour.

And maybe darker background would work better too.
Also post icons aren't good IMO. I'd go with something like freespace.pl/forum has or sectorgame has.
