How much did ArmaLite pay to make the Black Rifle site black with green furniture? [:D]
Link Posted: 12/16/2001 4:40:48 PM EST
The green background is going to take some getting used to, I really liked it black. The new buttons...blah blah blah... I'm going to have to give it as thumbs down... Liked the old style much better. Sorry GB you asked for it... John P.S. just to add I appreciate your hard work and strives to continue to make this site better. My comments are more cosmetic than of the workings of this site which by the way are smooth. Thanks GB....

GB This Rocks!!!

Looks great to me GB - feels just like home. Sorta like the "old" AR15.com with a "Windows XP" feel to it. [:D] The uppermost navigation for Membership, EE, ect. looks kinda smashed/too small. But maybe that's just me. [%|] Tyler

I don't like the new look. Looks to plain and basic. Looks like a unprofessional site, this is a web page no-no in fashion. Makes it look like a begginers site. Lets take a poll!!
Link Posted: 12/16/2001 4:48:33 PM EST
Looks fine, but pages are taking significantly longer to load (at least for me, and I have high-speed connection).

Everyone says it's green, but since I'm color blind, all I see is lot's of grey. I guess I'll have to trust you that the colors have changed. Av.

Do not like the change. What was wrong with the old way?? Seems like just when something seems like home, it gets changed again, will the maddness never end???

Goatboy... I thought the site was great before. Gimme a few days, and I will be able to see if it is easier to navigate. Right offhand.....Too much white background.... makes it too busy. The "Active Topics, My Active Topics, and Search" buttons are too small, and the font is very herd to read. I use these buttons a LOT.
Link Posted: 12/16/2001 4:54:43 PM EST
The top part and the color is ok, but I liked the old style for the rest of the page. I think it was easier to see and read everything because of the contrasts.
Link Posted: 12/16/2001 4:54:52 PM EST
Nope. Board just got really amuatuerish looking and ugly. Please change it back. Juggernaut

I like the green, just because it's different. The black was kinda boring. The scroll bar is a little hard to see, though. Maybe you could make it gray, or a lighter shade of green, or something? The 3D buttons are nice. And it's loading a whole lot faster for me than it was before. I'm using DSL, and it wasn't too bad before, but now it sizzles!! Thanks, GoatBoy! [:D]

Don't know if it's been mentioned yet, but I put some comments here : [url]http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?id=78807&page=1[/url] Also, when I edit I get the big whitespace on the top... How about a shade of light green instead of the white background - sort of a transparent version of the green you're currently using for the "outlines"? I think it would be a bit less harsh that all that white. Otherwise, I think I need time to adjust to it...

I liked the black furniture better than this green stuff, but then I always preferred the classics. The buttons are too small. I can't be the only person running at 1920x1440x32 screen resolution on a 21" monitor.

I hate change. No option to go directly from here to AR50 forums. Like before. When choosing AR50 site and GO, It pops up a new window (like before) but the original window goes to an error (Page not displayed)
Link Posted: 12/16/2001 5:17:20 PM EST
What they said about the white background! Too bright! Do shades of green or black (grey ) to make it not so bright! Just my .02
Link Posted: 12/16/2001 5:17:36 PM EST
hey goatboy. Looks great, I just have one suggestion. How about with the mainpage, have a lighter grey instead of white. The high contrast irriates my eyes. I'm not exactly an older guy also, so I can't imagine what it does with the eyes of the older people on this board. Thanks, good job! Robby
Link Posted: 12/16/2001 5:19:15 PM EST
How about three-tone desert camo instead of white. [:)] Something bland but not green

ummmmm, well, I, ummm, No sir....I don't like it. Too much white, I like the OD green and the new toolbars BUT....The black looked much more sophisticated. How about kepping the upgrades, but go "Back in Black" or a combination of black and green.

GB I like it!

It is a little fugly when you reply to a topic. But color aside, what heppened to the search function? And is full text search in the works for a future version? Oh, and the spell check is tweaked.

This is fine. I like the balance and feel of the new site. It's like a good wife. She is always trying to make the house look a little bit better. bybon

I like it!!!
Link Posted: 12/16/2001 5:39:27 PM EST
I guess I'm gonna have to jump on the color bandwagon and complain about the green and white. I really liked the dark background but the green is a nice addition. However, I think the majority should be left black and the green should replace all of the new "whiteness". Other than the color scheme I think it's great. I work in the engineering field and I'm of the mindset that you can't ever have too many knobs or buttons.

I really liked the old one better, the black colors were just right for a black rifle site, easier to view and navigate also. "If it ain´t broken, don´t fix it"

Ewwwww, its too damn bright with the bright white everywhere. Give us back the black! Kharn

I appreciate the hard work. I don't mind the white. I often browse at work, so the least military looking the better. Maybe you can go with pink and make it look like a Martha Stewart page or something? Then I could go full screen and never worry! The only thing that is a bit iffy are the "Membership|Equip Exchange|Industry..." links at the top. The text bleeds together so the "m" looks like a blob. Once again, thanks for the hard work! Jeff
Link Posted: 12/16/2001 5:51:54 PM EST
And now that I think about it, you ought to go to pastels for a day and I bet no one would ever complain about the green again. Ahhh, who am I kidding, there will always be someone to have a different opinion. Someone would probably like the pastel colors and be ticked they were gone...
Link Posted: 12/16/2001 5:55:42 PM EST
I actually come here for the content rather than the appearance. But having said that I do like the old version better. This is too bright. I guess I'll get used to it. You have to give GB credit - it's tough to try to improve on perfection! [beer]
