Maintenance / Site Appearance

Post by MoDaD » Thu Nov 17, 2016 5:52 pm

Won't bore you with the details, but had to recover from another catastrophic failure. I don't really have a lot of time to invest in this anymore, so I've started over completely (hence the default theme) to try to eliminate any suspect files that may have had some kind of infected backdoor code in them, along with trying a more aggressive security suite in a new host (reason for the DNS propagation). Hopefully by December I'll have some time to invest in doing some custom CSS and design work to make everything more "SWAT Kats" in appearance, but for now this will have to suffice. Thanks for your patience!

I can't help it!
the website had style to it. (I use night mode as my default setting because of the dark colors)
That style was full of life and attitude!
The dark navy blue and blood/rose red.
UGH! it worked so well for me. it captured the spirit of the show. while also being modern without deviating from the show's main theme. RADICALNESS

I know nothing of CSS, otherwise I'd be glad to help. XD
Best of luck to you nonetheless :D

I had a little bit of time to spend on this. If you check under:

User Control Panel --> Board Preferences --> My board style

There's a new style called "Megakat City." Almost done with it, but if everyone could check it to see if it works (and also air your grievances about it :lol: ) and whether or not you like it, it'd be appreciated.

Neat! I like this style.
But I'm gonna need more time to check it out more throughly.
The only thing I'd like to suggest at this point is to add a headline above the topics in the welcome box saying "Recommended topics", "Topic recommendations for newcomers" or something like that.
