The Clubhouse If it doesn't fit in any other category and is about general RC stuff then post it here at the Clubhouse.

Grey...ugly? Say it isn't so...

I thought maybe we could try a little change here to relieve the monotony...haven't changed these colors in a year...the white background is more "graphically" professional...white space is considered a plus. The shock effect takes a little while to wear off...give it a little time and let it sink in before we all decide it doesn't work.

Default changes

I like the white background but prefer the little camera to the + sign for photo message. Camera
shows up a lot better.

One of the many things I've always loved about RCU was I thought it looked way better than some of the other forums out there. I thought it was great! I'm disappointed at the moment. I agree, those buttons are hard to read. But I'll give it a chance. Now, since I'm done complaining can I have my milk and cookies?

Warby,
I'm out of cookies. Guess I'm going to have to cry! Marc, don't get mad at us. We are still your loyal supporters and I guess, critics as well! Long live RCU!

I have to admit, at first I knew something was different, just took me a while to realize everything was changed! Obviously, I don't really mind it since I can't tell in the first place.
The buttons are a bit tough to read, but as long as this place is free, do whatever you want Marc! Thanks for the great site!

i seen it, i like it as a change, i think its nice to switch up once in a while, maybe you could somehow make this into a preferance thing like the custom menu thing where we can choose between the two.

I like it way better with the button change. I guess I just miss the RCU blue.

I have to fix that gallery button...I have to find the typeface for it.

I will probably work on "themes" or what is also referrered to as "skins" so users can pick their colors and button sets.

I think this one looks clean and while a bit of a departure from the overall blue/purple I think it is easy on the eyes with the use of white.

Just thought I would toss these out for an XP chromatic look. If they're liked, have at 'em!
