but quite honestly I couldn't care less what your viewpoint is right now
My viewpoint is that I don't want to this whole thing to be stalled just because a few people have an aesthetic objection.
srdht, Skoolmunkee, myself and others are all involved in this process and we're all well aware that holding it up to change thigs like this for a few people will mean multiple delays and no guarantee that there won't be another group who're not satisfied with the next change.
On reading through the posts made by others, however, it was apparent that other people were complaining about the colour scheme and their views weren't being heeded.
No, the main problem was the bright green. You can count them VS the ones of Hippie, Lefarce, Skulbie, Ironscarf etc and see what ratio you come up with.
You do keep changing your position…
I'm still in the “Pick your own color scheme” bandwagon. It's going to be impossible to please everyone, since some will like loud colors, while others would prefer darker ones
came up with this idea in the first thread, that was YOUR
baby and you deserve full credit for it.
If you read through the original thread srdht himself promised that would “definitely” be a feature that would be added to the new redesign.
You have the promise. Make them stick to it. :)
It was actually Rain27 that came up with the suggestion but here is the promise in question:
I still support the idea of including a feature where readers are allowed to choose their own color scheme.
I've seen sites do that before and it's nice feeling to be able to personalize it a bit. It doesn't even have to be that many choices, maybe the original color scheme, this one and few others. It aught to silence all nitpicking about the current/future color, since people will feel appreciated to be able to pick the scheme they hate the least :Ãž
I can say that this is definitely a feature we are planning to implement into DD. This will happen eventually. Probably as part of the next feature roll-out after this one coming up.
will bow out for the night.
All I want is to make sure this change actually happens. The best way to do that would be to try and pick up on issues with the format of the actual designs as proposed, not focussing on personal issues with superficialities. Things like a “create” link being forefront on every page. How many times in a users history with the site will they actually click that to create a new comic? maybe 5, 10 tops? is tat really the best use of link space then?
-That sort of thing.
