Red face Hey you, off my chair. - 09-16-2007 , 05:05 PM


Well, you know, this sort of looks like v1 and v2, combined.

I think it's as though we've come full circle.

Though, to tell ya the truth: it's not my favorite color scheme.

But hey: I'm not here for the colors, and I'm sure you guys and gals aren't either. :)

I really don't like the this new skin.

the old skin was easyer to read than one.
the blue on blue looks worse than green on black colors are just awful.

I swear, I'm laughing my virtual butt off here. Just for kicks, you guys should go digging in the V2 forum (or maybe this one - can't remember) and find some of the threads where we changed themes. It's just comical.

For real though, not to be mean, but I truly don't care. No - really.

I love this skin, and that's all that matters. I changed it a bunch of times, put in over 20 hours total (around 9 - 10 just yesterday) to make it like I wanted it, and I succeeded.

If you guys don't like it, that's cool, because I do. :) Colors are subjective, and ANY time something like this is changed, I just know some of you are not going to be able to resist the urge to tell me you don't like it.

1. Don't care, but your opinion is as valid as anyone else's.
2. Take a moment to be grateful. I know that's much to ask in these days, but it can happen. Saying 'I don't like it, and I want the old one back. Uh...good job though.' is *wait for it* being a jerk. Try that in real life. Wow.

Ok, guys, I'm off to rest for awhile. I'll leave you to your...whatever it is that you're doing.

:)

We ARE appreciative. Sorry for having an opinion, I guess it's not allowed.

EDIT BY DUKE: Wow.

WOW! I am impressed I absolutley love this new skin! I (hate to say it, but I am a man of honest) wasn't so fond of the last skin, this makes me much happier though! Great work to everyone who put sometime into this place.

My god.

This new look makes it so much more.. I don't know.
It's beautiful to say the least. Loving the light coloured template, all the new graphics and such. It looks so much cleaner, neat and tidy. =)

I find it annoying having the posts so close to each other, I miss the 3-6 lines of blank space in every post. =/
That, and the edit button is on the left, it feels quite odd.

Very, VERY good update. I love it.

PS: I will be returning with Halo 3.. look out for a very interesting launching technique from me and Mr. Sprout.

Are you going to open up the banner submission thread again? Seems like a good time for the graphics people to come in use. :)

I don't know which one was directed at me...so I'll just say what I was going to say.

Pros:
  • You guys put a lot of work into this, and I know this is just the birth so naturally the baby isn't going to be as pretty as the supermodel that comes later on. [Stupid Metaphor FTW]
  • And I love the HIH symbol for the forums. Awesome, I hope we can see more HIH and Halo related items on V4
Cons:
  • I do miss the more gritty, darker feeling of V3, this seems to...well for lack of a better word, unmanly, it seems we should have a bit darker theme. But that's just me. And hopefully we will have a chance the change the skins, that. would. rock.
Things are different, and will take getting used to so I guess I'll have to wait and see whether or not I have to use my phail stamp... :p

So for now, I remain neutral. :)

Regardless, to all the staff of HIH: <3 For making one of the most kickass sites around.

We do appricieate the hard work you guys do ecpesially you Ducain. Its just some of us don't like the new skin and its not like were trying to be mean. Thats hardly a reason to attack the people who don't like it. Whatever though, its your fourm so I'm not gonna tell you how to run it. Could you at least give us an option to revert back to the old scheme or something else? I think that would make everything better because everyone could have the scheme they wanted.

EDIT BY DUKE: Be careful now. I didn't 'attack' anyone. We spend a huge amount of time doing something cool for you guys, and some folks can't bring themselves to say anything but 'don't like it'. And then some of you are going to get offended when I state MY opinion. Come on now. I shouldn't even be playing to this, and I'm going to stop, but this type of behavior simply defies all logic to me. It doesn't take a genius to tell when someone is being appreciate, and when they're not. Read some of the posts above and tell me what you think. :)

I know you guys think I'm kidding, but the main complaint we heard when we made the switch to the last template was 'this is too dark!!11onee~!!'.

Give it some time. :)

Gonna lock this now. Take this to Y&B.

Everything is great in my opinion, and I agree, we had the same debate with the v3, it will take some getting used to for some
