Forums design? And competition?
« on: January 27, 2016, 11:30:50 PM »
This forum looks a little bit dark, Don't you think, Maybe if there was a nice piece of total miner art in the backround. It would brighten it up a bit, So i was thinking you guys should hold a art competition for the backround, The winner gets a prize and to use the pic for the backround,



Ps I'm horrible at art.

The dark theme was purposely chosen so that it would be instantly recognizable from our old forums which had a white theme, to minimize any possible confusion.

Picture backgrounds can be problematic. Any text placed over an image background can become become impossible to read depending on screen resolution. And with the huge amount of crappy low end phones being used to surf the internet now, that's a big problem.

And also, I don't want to stare at a busy background every day.
