Topic: Styles: Jango Fett, Boba Fett Empire, Boba Fett Return

There's still a little ways to go, but I think the idea will work. They're based off of existing styles, available at punbb.org.

How do the colors look? The two Boba Fett styles are a set, with higher contrast; the Jango Fett is based on a lower contrast version. Should they all match? What's easiest to read, or pleasant to work from?

Boba Fett Empire is harder to read then Boba Fett Return (or whatever it was called - can't remember). You could also do a Jodo Kast colour theme, with orange etc.

I'll try to tweak it before we get any closer to letting more people in--I e-mailed every major poster, above 300 posts. Believe it or not, there's only about a dozen...since 2001.

Jodo Kast sounds good. I could use the yellow set I'm using on BFFC now.

Re: Styles: Jango Fett, Boba Fett Empire, Boba Fett Return

The colors are accurate, but they seem a little bland.  Maybe the two Boba schemes could benefit by having some splashes of yellow or orange.  Or you might add a second, darker shade of green to the Empire scheme (to symbolize both the armor and the gauntlets) and a regular green to the Return scheme (so you would have both the green armor and the red gauntlets.)

Re: Styles: Jango Fett, Boba Fett Empire, Boba Fett Return

We'll see. I'll have to prioritize. This board is just a fraction of what's going on with BFFC in general. Instead of multi-color boards with one option, I think we'll release this to the public with a managable set. Jodo Kast and multi-Fetts are pushing it, but good ideas. Time is a consideration--there's no one else behind the programming of this but me.

Re: Styles: Jango Fett, Boba Fett Empire, Boba Fett Return

Also you don't want to make the boards too colourful as they may become hard to read. As they say less is more wink

Re: Styles: Jango Fett, Boba Fett Empire, Boba Fett Return

I definitely like the Jango Fett color scheme better.  Gray with white and blue letters.  Much easier to read for me.

Re: Styles: Jango Fett, Boba Fett Empire, Boba Fett Return

I'll see what I can do to fix it before we switch the boards.

Re: Styles: Jango Fett, Boba Fett Empire, Boba Fett Return

What if we kept the Jango contrast, but gave a green and red alternate, like the colors on BFFC? Any fans of the lighter gray? Change it in your profile, to check, in case we lose them for all dark w/ color "skins."

Re: Styles: Jango Fett, Boba Fett Empire, Boba Fett Return

To be entirely honest, I hate the light gray color.  It's kinda icky looking.

Re: Styles: Jango Fett, Boba Fett Empire, Boba Fett Return

I like the Jango color the way it is, because it's not so bright when you're reading it.  Easier on the eyes.  The other two come up for me, as Green trim with a white background, or Red trim with a white background.  This comes up as blue or white letters, with gray trim and dark gray background.  Much easier to read it that way for me.

Re: Styles: Jango Fett, Boba Fett Empire, Boba Fett Return

Good. I agree. Maybe we can keep the IDEA of green and red, but I can swap it into the Jango look.

Re: Styles: Jango Fett, Boba Fett Empire, Boba Fett Return

The themes are cool, but the greys are a little bland in my oppinion though... On a different note, my current favorite is the Boba Fett Empire theme.

Kudar, I'm with you, the Empire theme is IT.  You have to love a board that gives you these kinds of options.

Yeah, it is a good board system. It is definately better than I anticipated from the administrator's description.

Re: Styles: Jango Fett, Boba Fett Empire, Boba Fett Return

I'm using the Jango one, but I like the Empire one too. I don't like the Return one cause the red is harder for me to read than the others, but that might be just me.

Reality doesn't care if you believe in it.

Re: Styles: Jango Fett, Boba Fett Empire, Boba Fett Return

I agree with u all, I like the Empire the best, but Jango is cool too.

Re: Styles: Jango Fett, Boba Fett Empire, Boba Fett Return

I think I am changing to RotJ... The others get really bland and boring fast. RotJ is at least a little more vibrant...


As another note, do you think you will be adding more skins besides these? Perhaps a lighter skin, and maby another that matches the website? I know a lot about CSS code myself, so perhaps I could help...

Re: Styles: Jango Fett, Boba Fett Empire, Boba Fett Return

They're meant to be more minimal, but I'm certainly open to suggestions and help. BobaFett.com uses these color sets.

In development, we had higher-contrast sets, with the lighter grey. I could see that coming back if it's what you're needing.

We don't need to, just some people prefer lighter skins over darker ones. I do like these darker skins a lot though. And I do agree, there shouldn't be a lot of skins. Of course, it would add a lot of customization to the site...

Yea, more choices the better!

Re: Styles: Jango Fett, Boba Fett Empire, Boba Fett Return

Well, it's a start. Maybe there could be a clone one.

There's a handful of other custom features coming to BFFC this year. Some clues in our colophon.

Hm, interesting idea. That would be cool.

And nice, I can't wait for these new features!
