Community site skin alternatives

Following on from... http://community.plus.net/forum/index.php/topic,61143.0.html

We have put together some alternatives* to the community site as it is at present.
The blog catergories have been restructured and we have changed the layout slightly to incorporate some new features.
All feedback gratefully recieved.  Cheesy

Re: Community site skin alternatives

Re: Community site skin alternatives

There are 3 seperate designs, each with there own elements.
The designs are meant to be different to give the user a choice.

Re: Community site skin alternatives

I would prefer the blue scheme if it had a nice shaded background like the green one

Re: Community site skin alternatives

I agree with OldJim on this one.  I like the blue one best but the shading in the background on the green one is excellent.

Re: Community site skin alternatives

I prefer the Green version.  The Blue is a close second - but for me the Blue seems to emphasise the large amounts of White Undecided  (an old washing powder trick)
Purple -  aargh!!!!!!!

So, are you saying, when this goes "live", we can all have our own preference for which design we view?  Roll eyes
AND
When we get fed up with it, we can change it?  Roll eyes

Re: Community site skin alternatives

I quite like the purple but not the black background.  The other colours have lighter backgrounds.  Can we have a look at purple with light background?
I am a bit of a Corporate image person.  As PlusNet has purple and orange in it's logos etc I think this should be reflected in all their websites.

Re: Community site skin alternatives

Shouldn't we be commenting more on the layout, content etc. rather than just concentrating on a minor tweak like the colours?
