Only the Danish smut industry might go for that.

Good luck! :neener:

However, if someone were to buy it off you at a premium (hard numbers exceeding $500), the :neener: would change to a :worship: .

Anyway... back to the topic...

The dns is propogating just fine (I can hit the new domain now so it should be available in your neck of the woods by tomorrow).

Miftah has graciously offered to do some work with branding and themes. It should go live sometime soonish (I may launch it prior to the "make it pretty part... I'm very excited for the new name).

:-)

Bejesus... everybody knows the damn name :-)

I was working on a pre-emptive theme for the new site until miftah gets done with his mid-terms, and was told in no small terms that it was ugly as hell.

Is it? (click for larger view)

I like the colors, but I'm not sure they fit. But then, as I would be doing a design, I *would* say that I'm missing it. But its NOT ugly by any stretch of the imagination.

Ummm... IMO, it falls just slightly under the "Garish" category, but I am biased against black/dark backgrounds. The other colors work fine, but yellow text on red serves the same function as a spork where my eyes are concerned. Green would be likewise painful, so I suggest that you use black text over red.

I like the logo graphic - I tend to be so technical in my layouts that the fun rarely comes through (or maybe I'm no fun), but this logo is cheeky fun!

*sigh*

Guess I'll work the other theme.

I'm hoping to have this rolled out by the end of the week.

Personally I like dark backgrounds. They're easier on the eyes, compared to garish white backgrounds. I don't know... I guess maybe I should do more computing with ambient light on.

I think I'm going to roll it out later today. I'm still working on a lighter theme, but I think it looks like ass, so it's going to take some more fine tuning and will come later.

Stay tuned for more information!

Personally... I like it.. but I'm also viewing it on an LCD display (not a CRT), so your results may vary.

Yes... I'm working on the other version. It's broken and stuffs, but I can add it in and fix it later (it's called "people" and will be available in a few minutes).

Double Post!!

the "people" theme (as incomplete as it is), is available. Simply go to your preferences and select it.

Here's a screencap: (click to make it go OMG XBOX BIG!!)

First person who bitches about the buttons looking bad and other various assorted broken stuff in the theme gets kicked in the groin daily for a week.
