I agree, for night viewing, S/AMOLED(+) screens, or just because, an alternate dark theme would be nice for a lot of folks.

Another enhancement request on the buttons -

When multi-quoting, the tint change on the button is barely readable.

Can has color change, plz?

(I recall multi-quotes discussed earlier, apologies if this is a repeat.)


~~~~~~~~~

And if you really want to go downtown, make the multiquotes turn into numbers, showing the quote order - but that is really low-order and out there. Definitely last on the list, so more a "nice-if" - below "bug" "enhancement needed" and "enhancement desired" or whatever the ranking system is.

Just logged on for the first time since the change. Not read others' comments, nor tested in detail. First impression is positive though - light, bright, open. Will let you know later if I find useability problems, but general look and feel is nice.

Whether blue + green works better than say two-tone blue, I've not yet made my mind up on. Makes strong contrasts between different elements, but are they too strong?

I think after viewing for a while that I would like the outside edges some darker color myself. Even the original blue that they were before. I love everything else though.

Like the graphics and designs, but dumping the blue is a mistake.

I agree with this also, at least the option of a darker color that would be easier on the eyes.

Yup, I like both the new format and the "Like" system. The Like system needs to be differentiated from the thanks IMHO.

I think an darker background "skin" would be nice for some folks, me included.

Also when I hover over the phone tab in the navigation bar, the "Like" count is overlayed on the popup. It's a white bar across the whole image. I'd post a screenshot, but for some reason my feeble mind isn't capable of such sorcery this evening.

I'd also prefer a darker theme (or at least the option of it). My eyesight is pretty bad and the brightness is making me strain and giving me a headache .

I like everything else though.

I just experienced something odd where I was inactive for a bit and so I got singed out, but when I signed back in it singed me back out again and then I tried again and the same thing happened.

To me, ""Like" means you like the subject matter or the individual post, whereas "Thanks" is an indication of merit for the individual... two entirely different things. If anything should go away, it should be "Like" IMHO.

Haven't read too far past the first page, so I'm just going to say how much I like (love!) the new look .

Not only does it look nice, but it looks and feels faster...I think the clean look that it conveys, whether real or imagined, lends to this.

Wonderful job and thanks!

I think it's great, but here are a couple things (some of which have been said already):
  1. I dislike the black bar at the top. (It's not so bad: I can hide it by modifying the CSS, PM me if you want to know how. )
  2. Get rid of the like system. Or at least, remove the "Thanks" system and place the "Like" button right where the "Thanks" button currently is. "Like" is confusing because of Facebook integration on so many websites, so rename it "Thanks".
  3. Don't use pixels for font sizes, use em (or another relative unit) for accessibility reasons. (The default is 16px = 1em).
  4. Get rid of the "new" smiley faces. What's the point of getting a new design if we have crappy pictures everywhere? Even better: remove the original ones and design your own set.
  5. Don't use the "web 2.0" buttons suggested before. They're horrible.
  6. I don't mind the white background much, but a darker alternative would be nice. I prefer it darker.
  7. Report button might need a little boost in size (and "report" on it).
  8. Updated mod buttons. Please?
  9. A delay before the pop-ups from the blue ribbon appear (HOME, CARRIER, PHONES, ...)

I do like thread links turning green on mouse-over. Overall, I like the change, which is quite unusual coming from me.

EDIT: Here's what the website looks for me after I modified the CSS. You can PM me and I'll send you the few lines of CSS that will work with the Chrome extension I am using (on a PC). I blurred out a couple things.

What (he) said.


I'm sure if everybody gets their wish - the site would end up back to its original state. And we don't want that -- do we? Obviously, there are things that need to be tweak, adjusted, and change. Hopefully when things get done, we won't end up with the same old look we had before.

★Below is a list of my likes(✔) and dislikes(✘) ★

● Enhancement to the site. ✔
● The blue and green color. ✔
● The bright white background. ✘
● New buttons. ✔ Shape of buttons (square). ✘ I think they could look much better. ✔
● Removal of the share button. ✔
● Spaces on both sides of page. ✘

I'm sure there are many other members who have their "likes and dislikes" as well.

WAY too bright Can we get a darker theme (at least for the edges) as an option??

Also, quite a few buttons (edit, quote, multi-quote...) appear to be blurry and not crisp/clear like one would hope.

Text is pretty small in chrome, as I have poor eyesight this is a problem for me. The site loading speed seems ok. As mentioned, it woulld be nice to be able to change the theme to something with a little less glare. Overall, I Like the snappier look.

Yours are much worse. Either sharpened too much or the JPEG compression, but I see a quite pixelated square area around the text.

Since I only browse AF via mobile (full site). My thumb is now constantly hitting the "edit" button as I scroll. They are way to big. O_o

VERY CLEAN!

Work out the bugs like the fuzzy text and some of the other mentioned issues and we are good.

VERY minor complaint but the purple outline around the clickable Phandroid image at the top left of each page seems a little out of context from the rest of the color scheme.

One other thing is when I clicked Quote to do this, it threw that window way over to the right, instead of straight down like it used to.
Edit: tried that again and it was fine. Must’ve been a flashback -- those are fun.

Overall is a-ok...

Default [PROBLEM]Text zoom broken in Chrome

Google chrome can not zoom the text on the new site using CTRL + mouse wheel or the + key. Pictures get larger but text does not. It works fine in firefox and IE but this is a site about google stuff, it should work properly in chrome. It has to do with the way the CSS was written. Please fix this, I'm sure Im not the only blind person trying to read this site in chrome.

Very Nice! But don't you think there is too much of white space? But it does look very slick indeed!

+1 Those are the exact reasons I use those buttons (nod in approval because I "like" the content of the post).

I really like the new look. Great work and this site is certainly my favorite android forum place along with xda developers.

Default Fixed Font Size Sucks

I usually have my browser set to zoom 144% because of the high resolution of my monitor and the distance I sit from the screen. Your new style does not allow the font size to zoom with the page zoom as it should. No matter how much I zoom the page, the font size stays the same small size (10pt). Use EM instead of pt or px and you won't have that problem.

I've got the same problem here. All the text is so tiny. But it's just as tiny in Firefox as it is in Chrome... at least on Linux.

Also: zooming the page in Chrome doesn't help - everything EXCEPT THE TEXT gets bigger.

Default Font too small

I have to agree on this point- my eyes aren't that great anymore- the font is way to small with the Chrome browser- my browser of choice- and 'see' no way to fix it. I read this site every day- don't want to spend rest of the day with blurry vision.

Quick update:
Read some more- so bright it is blinding; the font goes so 'blurry' after awhile my eyes start to tear up. Sorry I'm not a 20/20 but that was many years ago.

This is my favorite site- now nearly unreadable- for me- sorry.

Thanks,

Maybe I'm just resistant to change but I miss the old phandroid mascot/logo.

Bottom of front page of Phandroid is confused.

Bottom of first page says "Next page" instead of previous page.

Bottom of page two have Next and Previous page links exactly backwards.

This is me being VERY pedantic, but when you're in the full reply screen (ie not quick reply), under the smilies, you've got Miscellaneous Options:

Show your signature
Automatically parse links in text
Automatically retrieve titles from external links

The last one is not correctly aligned with the first 2

Oh and personally I'm not a big fan of 'Likes'. People are liking when they should be thanking and it no-one cares how many likes you get.
