    Wip Cartographer's Guild Userstyle

    Hullo folks, I am new here. I really don't intend to be rude, but I'm not a fan of the site's design. So to make my time here more bearable I am creating a userstyle. It is only a wip, but I thought I would share what I have done so far. Many things still to do.

    You need Stylish installed on firefox to use it.

    Place holder background from http://www.squidfingers.com/patterns/

    Code:
    @namespace url(http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml);
    
    @-moz-document domain("www.cartographersguild.com") {
    
    html{
    background: url("http://www.squidfingers.com/files/patterns/pattern_038.gif") !important;
    }
    
    body{
    -moz-box-shadow:0 0px 20px rgba(0,0,0,0.6);
    width: 1020px !important;

    I'm rather satisfied with the design myself - it doesn't fight with the art inhere - but in the interest of people who might be unsatisfied and to satisfy my own curiosity why don't you post a screendump with your design instead of showing us the code - we are after all a rather visual crowd in here

    It's actually not very 'done' at the moment, but I will post screenshots soon

    I kinda like the present design - it's easy on the eyes (easy to read, with no distracting background colors in the text boxes), and as tilt said, it doesn't distract from the art. I'd like to see what you got though, when you've got some pics.

    Wow, that has to be the most insulting post I've seen on a forum in a long time. To make your time here more "bearable" you might want to create a new account in order to hide your identity.

    It wasn't actually that bad. I mean, I think everyone else likes the current style, and it wasn't exactly complimentary, but if it's the most insulting post you've seen in a long time, you haven't been on many forums outside of this one.

    The only person who could really take offense at it is the person who designed the forum. Unless they are offended, the rest of us can't complain.

    I actually like the current design as well. The colors are nice, and not distracting. Actually, everything is. I don't know what there is to dislike.

    Ultimately it's up to Arcanna then he'd ask us CLs our opinions then we'd put up a poll. Indeed a flashy website would detract from the maps but we've discussed this sort of thing in the past and even flashier. While Arcana does, indeed, lean that way but we haven't been able to make it work with our current software so we left things as is until the site itself runs more smoothly. Once we get things stable Arcana has some really neat things he wants to add but that might require new software.

    As a Very First Post (i think it is?), that wasn't really very diplomatic, but hey -- let's have a look-see at the style. Is there a screenshot?

    I like our style pretty well, but there are some days when the light text on the darker background is a little hard on these eyes. Maybe the style will persuade me to use Firefox instead of Safari.

    Possibly...

    Sorry dudes I feel really bad now. I thought rather than just complaining I'd actually try to do something about it. I'll still work on it as a little project, and I'll post some screenshots soon.

    It's just a userstyle, so you wouldn't have to use it if you didn't want to.
