Website Styles

I've been working on a few different styles for the website, basically different colours for all the Houses. Check out the links below to see the main page in that particular style:

Take a look and let me know if you have any suggestions to improve them. Eventually you will be able to select a style and it will stick around for every page.

and what abou the possiblilty of different font style for the house you choose...

hark gets something creepy, atredies and corrino get fancy types ones, ordos something sleek and snake like.... and then a regular font option too.... just an idead to go along with the House style thingy ;D

I have to concur with Gob on the fonts. While different font styles might make for nice eye candy the purpose of this site (aside from Gob showing off) is to provide information and I believe stylised fonts would inhibit that. If fonts were introduced, I would restrict them to subject headings.

Now, I don't know what anybody else thinks of this but of the items listed on the right side-bar I tend to glance at Forum Topics the most, particularly as it is the most likely to change from visit to visit. Unless anyone has a reason to object to this, I would suggest that that be moved to the top of the sidebar so people can see it the moment they access the site.

Well they won't be the default, just an option for those people who can't get enough green or whatever color it might be. ;)

This is fairly close to the old layout:

Or even better:

Those old fed2k colours don't look much like i remember them.

Did u go back that far Mahdi? :)

Apart from the ye olde colours, FED2k feels strange not being yellow :D .... not that there is anything wrong with the other colours ;D

Hmmm, why is Atreides blue and Harkonnen red and Corrino cyan? Don't you want follow the books instead of the Games?

But I like the default old style the most. It gives me a good 'wormfeeling'

What were the Book colours?

Atreides:Green Black

Harkonnen:Blue

and how about an Ix one:Copper and Purple
