*waves a hand* Hey, I have a question about the site scheme design for Support to answer:

What would you like the Support Requests board to look like?

Should I leave the yellow, green and red as it is, or has anyone been wanting a different color code?

New Ideas

Worksafe scheme: in neutrals with a neutral Tweak.

Dramatic scheme: Keeping Tweak orange.

Colorshifting? With a green tweak or blue tweak to go with green or blue color blocks...

Once the divs are all coded, making more of these will be the easiest thing in the world.


*chews nail* Should probably take most of the content out of tables after all, then. Well, the site pages are finite, it shouldn't take forever. And it would mean the site could validate, probably.

Ack, parents in an hour and a half! *dashes off with hexidecimal dancing in her head*

Design natter

I think I may crosspost this, if only because my flist over here is small as yet.

But the question /is/... what image would IJ (and its users) like to have? There's the Facebook option, which is Clean and Professional. There's the Myspace option (only better coded, please [DEITY]), which is Bold and Bright. LJ is kind of in between those--the color palate is C&P, while the number of flashy, tacky or just high-contrast content widgets is B&B.

As it stands, IJ itself is kind of in-between... at least the default is. The alternative schemes are kind of half and half either way.

So, okay, maybe that means we should be working toward a sort of compromise scheme. So, probably not the intense blue background. But also perhaps not the pure white background. Light yellow is probably a bit to "soft". Perhaps some kind of geometrical wallpaper for the header and a white background. Something that leaves Tweak on white and then transfers, one way or another, to the topbar-orange as it moves to the left.

Have to make sure the logged in info is still readable on it.

*pokes at this idea some more* Maybe make /all/ the menus the same gold-orange, and save the darker accent colors for that header paper...
