OK, it works now, thanks.

The link color and the rank image are the same. Try clearing your cache.

Nice, it looks much better - same colors for the same rank, but...

...There is still one rank with two different colors - admin, any chance to change also this? To red or to orange, it does not matter.

With the change in group colors, some of the rank images have been changed. Newbie through Semi-Avantic have also changed. See the first post in this thread or the original thread for the changes.

Thanks for mentioning that. I don't really like it, but at least now I know that it might be because I'm not used to it and not because it's universally ugly.

I second to that. It does look great!

And the spacing between rank graphic and avatar makes it look clean.

Good work guys!

Well, my point being that there are words there... people don't have to rely on colors.
I said this is not important, last time:

What looks strange TO ME is - different colors for the same rank ON THIS FORUM, e.g.

Now I can see "hornakapopolis" below in "Topic review" (BTW without any text "admin") in RED, when I read this topic, I can see this Image in ORANGE, therefore I have SUGGESTED to use the same color (orange or red - it does not matter) - support stuff colors are green / blue, also not the same. Perhaps it's also my 'not perfect' English, I hope you know what I mean now.

All I said here is just my opinion, if you don't like it, I respect it, of course.

This is not very important.

Don't forget this one. I'm sure there's more, but the length of this thread is becoming completely disproportionate to my interest in it.

I thought this section (Forum Suggestions) is for "Tips for making the forum even better", if not, you should change that text maybe.

- red / orange for admin
- blue / light green for support staff

About new colors, better than first time, but I suggest these colors, more intuitive and exact:

username
Developer

username
Administrator

username
Moderator

username
Support Stuff

username
AvantGuard

username
Normal user

I know, orange doesn't look so good, but it's a standard, so it should be used, it could be a bit darker if possible. Developer color could be also dark yellow instead of red and AvantGuard could be dark grey, if possible.
Pip - what about this: - it's grey too. I just want to make it the same. It could be dark grey, almost black.

Also orange - this is orange: and default phpBB admin color is orange too, so I'd like to have it the same, maybe darker orange, DrDrrae, could you try it?

Also Anderson's color is yelow, so darker yellow would be nice, it is already, but now it's very similar to Support Stuff - this color could be lighter green, since they are moderators too.
So Dreamer, if I was wrong in assuming you were trying to insist on "standard" colors as opposed to what the Admin and Staff decide upon for their own forum, I apologize.

Those are being looked into. Just because you can't see what's going on behind the scenes, doesn't mean it's not there.

How can it be confusing it the colors are labeled as to what they are, regardless of the color? It isn't! There is also a legend at the bottom of the initial forum homepage that provides examples of the Staff colors for those who might not be familiar with the uniqueness of this forum.

If you were Admin here at this forum, then maybe you could dictate what colors to use, but since you are not, you just need to become accustomed to whatever the Admin and Staff decide is best this forum, just as you would no doubt do for any other forum in which you might participate.

I don't like default phpBB colors too, but I just don't want to use TWO DIFFERENT COLORS for admin, avantguard, developer... Do you understand what I mean now? Let's use purple, or white ( :twisted: ), but use it everywhere!

Anyway, if the admin/mod colors will be different in every other forum, it will be confusing though, then any colors will be quite useless. :roll:

Everything except 808080 looks good on SoftBlue.

Pip - what about this: Image - it's grey too. I just want to make it the same. It could be dark grey, almost black. ;)

Also orange - this is orange: Image and default phpBB admin color is orange too, so I'd like to have it the same, maybe darker orange, DrDrrae, could you try it?

Also Anderson's color is yelow, so darker yellow would be nice, it is already, but now it's very similar to Support Stuff - this color could be lighter green, since they are moderators too.

Hope you know what I mean.
About your progress bar... although there is no reason for it since there is rank it's still nicely designed.
Check few first posts, then you'll probably understand what I mean...

LOL..........ya gotta do what ya gotta do!

Yea, I made it and it's part of my avatar because Horni wouldn't make a Grafix group.
