Check out the lastest style set, #3. Not done yet but getting there. What is a style set you ask? Look at the bottom left of main site page, drop down box has diff ways that you can view the site.

I use Style #4.

It gives you that great "Relayer"-type snake on the Yesfans logo.

A bit too blue perhaps but I like the modern feel of it. Good job!

I often use the Relayer one as well...

As you can tell #3 is NOT a Yes look at all. Just wanted to hang up something a littled diff.

I love this new setting it is very blue, which was a bit of a shock at first but I love it, now I've got used to it. It has a very modern look to it. Maybe there could be a colour selection if people aren't to keen on blue so they can change to their fav. colour. But it is I think a step forward it has a modern look which it lacked compared to other Yes sites up to now. The only problem is that at present Tim you are losing money on this set up beacuse there are no google ads. But as this is an experiment I guess Tim, you will change that.

Ah, thanks for the reminder. Gotta do my daily ad-clicks.

As for the different skins, I always forget you can even change them. I've used #1 forever, and just now auditioned each of the others. I'm so used to the clean look and sans-serif font of #1 that none of the others seemed "right". Weird, because I generally prefer Times to Arial in general, but Arial is definitely easier to read.

I think the different style set could work really well, although I have to say that things are not that easy to read here and there.. Maybe if you could brighten the colors and change the saturation a bit, that would do good I believe. Maybe you can choose other style sets as well?

Perhaps you can have a look at some other websites using the same forum software. J

take a look at:

Just to give you an idea.

Actually, Teapottraveler uses Invision Power Board. It is free software!
Tim uses jellsofts vBulletin. Nonetheless, all have many skins you can use. I like the blue skin, but the font needs to contrast more with the background. Change that and it would be my default skin here!

Hey I love the picture at the top but it does something strange to the rep. squares. Still like #3, and really like the inclusion of your Yesfans logo into it.

I dont know if I like #6 but I put it up anyways. I know some of the women here will like it! The lay out is diff also. I need to firgure out how to move that info at the bottom back to the top.

Style set #7 is done. Much like the default but a little better.

1yesfan
10-17-2004, 09:44 PM
OK, Style sets 3 and 7 are done. They are a little diff in formats, looks, fonts, colors. There is a #6 also now but I have not fiddled with that one much yet. I still have to move the who's online, stats, to the top of the site main page on all of these new sets. You can use any of them you want. Of course we will keep the YES LOOK versions and will be adding more of those. Just thought you all would like something diff to play with for awhile maybe. Heck it also helps me brush up on doing that back end stuff, adding new looks and the like. Its been awhile since I have done that. I probably spent 18 hours or more messing with the site this weekend. We STILL are having the slow server issues. Sorry but that will be the case for a while. If your on and it hits stops or runs slow please do not kep hitting refresh, that jsut makes it worst. Please hang in there folks. We will get on a better server in the coming months. Meantime help support the site by using the boxes or buying something fromt he shoppe. JJgeers, our site artist has done a bang up job with the site logo's for it and they look GREAT! More to come also.

It's looks cool in #7 too, because of the same background.

Thought you'd like to know. :kissme:

I use #5 usually - I love the aqua background! #3 isn't bad though - thinking on it . . .

These styles are awesome. I should change them more often. I have a problem with #7. There's no way to move the site for me. I don't know what you call the bars on the right site, but it's missing. I didn't know how to scroll down without it and so I had trouble getting rid of it again. But 3 and 6 are totally awesome. Great work. I love the logo for #6.

Well done, whoever designed it!

If you cant see the scroll bar on #7 you may have to adju your screen resolution. It is a rather large set up.

I know. I'm going to have to make mine into a gif. I guess so that the background is transparent.

Number 7 rocks!

Much like Number 1 (which is gone now?) but with just enough blue to make it interesting. And the graphic is cool.

I am now with Number 7. We are one. We are cool together. :D And my kitty cat meows at you all no matter what.

I'm groovin' with this all, Tim. You are the man!

I did Tim, but there's still no scroll bar. Anyway, there's enough other styles I can use. No problem:-)

I'm using that one, too, even though it's locked into a 800x600 size and doesn't fill the screen at higher resolutions. But it's nice.

I've been using #3 all day, since #5 no longer has all the options. It's a bit hard on my eyes after a time.

So, I'm going to try #6 for a while - it's an easier look.

1yesfan
10-19-2004, 05:53 PM
What do yo mean that #5 does not have all the options?

cinderella
10-19-2004, 06:33 PM
The strangest thing. I was at my mother's house last night and I was using her computer. I came here to Yesfans, but I couldn't do anything because there was no arrow on the right side of the screen to move the page up and down. I came home and checked my computer and it was okay, but not on hers. Very weird. I'm going to check again tonight to see if maybe it was just a temporary thing.

By the way, I'm using # 7. I always used the default one before, which I really liked, so this is the closest.

cinderella
10-19-2004, 07:10 PM
Okay I'm here at my mom's house and it's only style #7 that won't work on her computer. Wonder why? Oh well. Anyway it works on all the other styles.


Okay well duh? I should have read all the posts. I see Sally is having the same problem with #7. Okay well at least I know my mother's computer is not the only one doing this.
