Orange for the win!

Heya to the two of you!

Site got a fresh new look, sorry it took so long to get some flavor back on the site.

Working on bringing the old features back(map, events, etc). I miss the old stuff.

Take care :)

im down with dark mode. but not totally sold on the orange. it's a little Halloween. and i don't like Halloween. but it's different than every other forum so that's a cool.

Wow, what a bombshell!
The site popped up and I was like blown away.
Very well done Sir!
I like the floating structures in the header pic, they remind me of the classic Asteroids arcade.

Funker Vogt would love the color scheme for sure...

Re: Orange for the win!

And now for the inevitable nit picking...

The emoticons all look like gray haired going bald with sort of white beard stubble. :) :D :lol:
May be there's an easy way to replace the gif-set with files more suitable for the dark background?
Another option may be to refine the transparency of the current files. I can give it a try if you like.
But honestly I think a different set of emoticons would support the cool, edgy, "eccentric" site layout way better. ;)

Scruffy vs. shaved - just a fast & dirty edit - still some stubborn pixels left...

I noticed the same and had been on a hunt for some alternative icons for the board that would be a bit more.... fun. It seems the board just ran with the forum software's stock icon set.

I installed a set of stock icons intended for dark mode. That should keep us safe from the fuzzy icons in the meantime :)
