It looked like this:


And then got updated to:


Notes: The time and the last logins are removed from the right column.

Many buttons and such don't follow the theme yet, and this isn't finished.

If you still want Elftown to look like this, you can go to <URI:update_attr.html> and write after "URI to home-made stylesheet (blank=use the stylesheet above)"

Feel free to comment on this!

2010-04-01 [Elysian Field Originals]: Very nice!

2010-04-01 [ursus_minor]: I'm sorry, but it looks like a someone in high school did this. Very unprofessional.

2010-04-01 [Yuriona]: It is a work in progress you know and a negative comment like that doesn't help improve it any. Please give suggestions that will help to improve the new look rather than just flaming it because you can. :P

2010-04-01 [Teufelsweib]: it's as unprofessional not to back up your opinion ;)

2010-04-01 [Teufelsweib]: ehh fuck, yuri beat me *kicks dirt* :P

2010-04-01 [Yuriona]: Muahahahaha... >D

2010-04-01 [Veltzeh]: Looks very woody! :P
I think the background interferes with the text of wikipages a bit too much; it should be solid or at least have even less contrast on the wood pattern.

2010-04-01 [Sharky87]: It's a 1st of April joke..

2010-04-01 [Skydancer]: I would like it much better if the background were solid instead of a pattern. I find the pattern very distracting and hard on the eyes.The rest of it seems to be reasonable so far.

2010-04-01 [Daisy le Fleur]: I like the color scheme, it's modern and updated. Seems streamlined. I dont mind the paneling look, it keeps it from getting too far away from the natural/woodsy feel of Elftown.

2010-04-01 [Calico Tiger]: Hmmm... Veltzeh has a point. I didn't think about wiki page text and how it'd look on the background. It can be rather hard on the eyes at that point. Perhaps fade the background image a little bit? Or for wiki pages, it be just a solid gray in the wiki text box area? Like how the comment area is?

2010-04-01 [Mortified Penguin]: I'm going to assume this is an April Fools joke...

But if it's not, I will be killing someone. Do you know how many images I have with a plain, green background that now no longer match?

2010-04-01 [Morrigon]: Is it sad that I like the darkness? MWHAHAHAHAH

2010-04-01 [Sunrose]:
@Yur/Tw: We're asking for comments, not backed-up opinions or mere positive feedback ;)

@[ursus_minor]: It would be interesting though to hear what exactly you think is unprofessional, because we might like your suggestions to improve it. So it's simply a chance you're letting slip by, where you could've possibly contributed to the new look of Elftown :P

@Mort: Poor you.. :p

2010-04-01 [Mortified Penguin]: But... this wood is too flamable!

2010-04-01 [Sunrose]: Someone (Pillowthief) commented on the entrance image in the suggestions-forum, I would like to add that it would be cool to have a moving gif on the entrance much like Elfwood has. Not that we should be a copy or that it has much to do with the new style, but it just looks cool and sparkly :P

2010-04-01 [Veltzeh]: [Mortified Penguin]: You can always switch back to the green stylesheet if you like (at least after today, I'd imagine), but not all people use the green stylesheet anyway. Try to make transparent PNGs instead? Those work on everyone (as long as they have a newish browser)! :)

2010-04-01 [Mortified Penguin]: Making transparent PNGs wasn't an option at the time I uploaded most of the pictures, as all I have to work with is Paint.

2010-04-01 [Snow Leopard]: I think it looks pretty cool. The wikis are a little bit hard to read though.

2010-04-01 [popeyethecat]: It'll probably look good once it's finished. But it's a bit..sleek, and a bit dark

2010-04-01 [Ramirez]: Fantastic! Makes all the color just pop. XD;;;
