Title: Changing the Default Theme
Post by: Sister Wolf on November 23, 2010, 06:53:31 PM
Everybody will be switched to the new default theme immediately.  Babylon is going bye bye.  If you had a dark theme before, you will need to switch back to that theme.

Cope.

Babylon was breaking some things that are needed on this forum (such as the new google search tool, and our ad management software).  I had to get rid of it, and it was our default.  Everybody (including me) had to get switched.

Wow right in the middle of a post. Seriously sis...I thought I clicked something and changed the whole thing. I knew I would be kicked off the forum for sure!

I really am sorry.  My guts were in a twist knowing that I'd piss off at least a hundred members with a single click of the mouse.

But look at it this way - now you have a google search box at the bottom of the forum!  *nervous smile*

Sis,
Thanks for working and doing all this stuff.
I know its awkward during the switch-over, but you're doing a great job.



Hey DEV,  :P

I love the camo theme.  It's the prettiest of the light themes, I think.

Sis, I like the new theme. The colors are great for me. It switched for me when I switched pages. Not a shock as I had already read your post that it was changing. Thanks for all you do.

Now, if you were to, say, accidentally delete the entire forum, well, we might have to cut back someone's coffee ration... ;)

No problem here. Any color is good as long as its not pink. ;)

I think I changed my theme to camouflage, but now I can't find my screen.  ;D

The forum looks good. It's very similar to the previous version, so it's not all that unsettling a change.

I don't like it.   :-\

can I still use babylon on my own  ???

I like the new scheme. It was a bit of a shock when I first logged in, but I knew who did it. I just clicked on unread posts, found this thread, and of course, there she was, confessing.  ;)

One small thing, SW.

We seem to be missing the searchable member list with the new theme.

Scared me, I thought there were server problems again and the forum went back in time to 2008 again.
Good job Sis! Can't wait to try google search.

Sorry about that Tex!  I was gonna say "wtf.. it's always something."  but you're right.  For anybody else who wants the members list, it moved to the top of the forum for some reason.

No.  Babylon was breaking our software.  I had to delete it.  I never would have switched everybody if it hadn't been causing problems. 

Dev was just being lazy.  He never used babylon.  He uses gold moon.

If you want to change your theme to another color scheme, you're welcome to do that.  (Profile > Look & Layout Preferences > Change theme)

But babylon is gone.

Sorry about the inconvenience, MS.

It's a bit odd looking right now but definitely not a problem. Stuff happens, this is a small one.

I just switch to Camo. Now, none of my coworkers will be able to see me on a forum.

In the infamous words of Red Green.

I'm a man.
I can change if I have to.
I guess.

I was a jerk last time you changed themes and will apologize again.

I tried the camo theme, it reminded me of GI Joe, but alas, was too hard to look at.

I tried the Full Moon theme and it must not like my settings because it was really wanky. :wtf:

So, I will happily use the new default theme until something better comes along.

Thanks Sis for all the hard work you do around here.

I guess I am just being lazy too.  I just hate software changes.  it requires that I do something different.  sigh.  I will get over it.  And, SW, you do do a lot for us, so I shouldn't complain.  my apologies.

You have my full sympathy and if you want to complain, you are welcome to do so.  I will even buy you a hot chocolate and nod my head when you need validation.

btw, I wasn't implying that you were being lazy.  I just know dev.  And I know he was.  ;)

I do NOT remember that.  Even after you saying so, I don't remember it.  I'd like to keep on not remembering it.  ;)

Hey DEV,  :P

Kiss-ass....

*kicks the dirt & goes home* (to have rabbit for dinner)

btw, I wasn't implying that you were being lazy.  I just know dev.  And I know he was.  ;)
In a thread full of butt-kisser's I'm just daring to be different.  ;)

I wasn't being lazy...I was just the last to know, as usual. ::)  (because I hadn't read your stupid announcement)

LOL!  I'm sorry, Kitey.  I wasn't trying to make your bat senses tingle there.  :D

I am working on the spell check function, buddy.  I'll see if I can get it installed tomorrow while you guys are eating roasted birdies.

It was a bit of a surprise when I checked in and saw a different theme, but I like it.

Sis - you can't please all of the people all of the time, but you can please some of the people most of the time! You're work is good, and we all understand "stuff happens".

A.

this is a legitimate problem now, SW, not just the petulance of a change-phobic forum member (okay, well, maybe it is that too!)

there used to be a really big button to go to Jack's podcast site.  it is gone now.  any chance to get that back?

If you go to the forum home page, there is a Podcast ad in the middle below the header. That is a direct link to the podcast blog.

Now there's a really big button that goes to Jack's podcast site again.  It's up in the right hand corner.  It has a pic of val, and it says, "THE SURVIVAL PODCAST & BLOG".

Hope that helps.

Title: Re: Changing the Default Theme
Post by: Sister Wolf on December 02, 2010, 10:45:17 PM
cool thank you.

You are most welcome.  I'm very sorry that I can't just give you babylon back.  I hope you know it's not a question of aesthetics or some kind of sick power trip on my part.

I mean... power trips are fun when everybody involved is a consenting adult. ;D  But I wouldn't do this to you if it wasn't literally breaking the forum.

I know it's tough to get used to a new theme.  Especially when you didn't want the new theme.  I'll do anything that is within my power to fix any gripe that you have, but eventually it will boil down to "I just don't like it" and that - my darling - I cannot fix.  I CAN, however, go see if I can find a babylon-ish theme that doesn't break the forum and install it so that you have the choice of using that theme.

Let me see what I can find for you.

nah, i was just being lazy, like  you said about DEV  ;)  I dislike change very much.  I am already used to the new one, so don't put yourself out.  At this point, if you changed it back, I would probably gripe there too.  I am just lazy when it comes to my computer habits.  dh is always afraid to do anything to my computer - even if I have been complaining about something for a long time - cuz I will complain about other things.....

so the point of all this - DON'T YOU DARE SPEND YOUR PRECIOUS TIME TRYING TO ACCOMMODATE ME!   :P

LOL!  Seriously, MS, if there's anything more you want done (especially legitimate things like your complaint yesterday), all you have to do is say something, and they'll get done.  I'm a little slow right now (started getting sick yesterday morning, and  now I'm completely done for.  Got a cold - YUCK!) but you WILL get taken care of.

You and other forum members are exactly who we volunteer to spend our precious time accommodating.  :)
