Hey guys, I recently noticed the forum had a slight facelift.

What do you guys think of it?

I like it, kind of...

I think think FORUMS should be horizontal instead, and the Edguy logo looks like the colour of it is messed up. (Due to .gif limitations?)

Anyways, just my suggestion.

Indeed... this small facelift is just going to tide us over until we get closer to the new Avantasia release. At that point we'll introduce a new theme, new skin, new graphics, etc. :)

And I'll definitely think about your suggestions on the banner - I appreciate your comments. 8)

I've been wondering for hours what the hell you were all about until now: I've refreshed the page :lol:

To be honest, I liked the previous one better, this one still looks good :)

Nice additions. Gotta get used to it i guess. The font used for "Where messages fly forums" is too rounded. too big & fuzzy edged. Edguy & Avantasia are angles, clean, bordered(boarded? :P ) and sharp... I think that should follow. Everything in the picture, symbol and off on the right is clear and precise. It may be the Virgo in me BUT i think that precision should carry into all that appears in the banner. It kind of looks sloppy. NO OFFENCE TO ANYONE.
*hides face*
Maybe even overlap part of the word 'forums' on the word 'fly' for a layered 'pop' otherwise the colours look too bright and just STUCK in comparison to the subdued sepia wash of the photo.
I agree with the horizontal suggestion too.
But then it is just past 4am down here and i haven't slept in what feels like nearly 4 days!!!
So maybe my brain isn't seeing what my eyes are seeing!
:-P

BTW i LOVE that Speckled Orange EDGUY logo!!! Makes me want to get that done in Burnt Orange glitter on a black T-Shirt. Would make an AWESOME girly top!!! Maybe i'll get it done up for the Savage Meeting next year if it goes ahead with Muppet in orange over my heart and Savage Union on the back?!? Too cute!
:P :lick

It will be coming back this weekend. :) Don't worry. 8)

And thanks for the suggestions on the banner earlier; I appreciate that. I was pretty tired when I made it last night and when I got to work this morning I wasn't completely happy with it myself. I'm happier with the new look I just uploaded and will continue to tweak into I am satisfied. And like I said... a new forum skin, etc. is coming down the pipeline - just a matter of time. 8)

Is very common that we tweack graphics until were fully happy with them. I guess and Support -H when he say's that a new thing is coming, so this is just a shower before the big change, however is nice we all talk about it.
