Your Thoughts?


As you can see, I drastically changed the look of CQC. What do you think of the re-design? Is any text hard to read? Is there too much blue? Brown not working?? Did I do something silly? Do you like it?

Please, comment away! I love input ;)

OO! It's nice :D I like it...although it is a wee bit dark, however I still think it fitting :)

Squeaks.

The Director said...

Is there anything you think I could change to brighten it up a wee bit?? Is there too much gray matter? :P

Riah said...

it's a tad dark...

Josiphine said...

I can't read the words in the poll, because they are black on a black background. Might want to change that, :) (The percentages, not the options)

And, I don't really like reading white words, but that's personal.

The Director said...

Riah- any part in particular, like the background, or just too dark as a whole??

Josiphine- about the polls- that's something I've never been able to change, so to read the percentages I just highlight it with my cursor. Sorry about that :(

And, I had a feeling that the white words would be a bit problematic... I'll try tweaking it, but if that doesn't work at least be comforted that I'll change the look again in a few months... :P

I like it, Abby! I got on and was like "Woah! She changed it--Cool!"

Hannah Joy said...

Oh my gosh, I LOVE the quote!! Horatio Hornblower R-U-L-E-S!!

The Director said...

Oh my gosh, Hannah, you never fail to make me smile.
Your second comment made me throw my hands up in the air and shout "YAY!"

L-i-t-e-r-a-l-l-y.

My gosh, you have made my DAY!

Horatio Hornblower FOREVER.

I really, REALLY like the new look. *thumbs up* ;D

Riah said...

It's just a tad dark in general.. but then again, it's probably my computer. It looks fine on my mom's, but my laptop has color issues... gr

The Director said...

Thanks Nicole!

Riah- ah, sorry about that. :| It is pretty dark but I hope you won't mind it staying for a wee bit ;)

Eldra said...

I like it dark. It makes it easier to read the words, not to mention blue is a wonderful color. I think you should keep it.

Marian said...

A Hornblower quote! Gotta love Lt Bush--he can be horribly menacing, but he's really quite patient, when it comes down to it. "'But coffee shouldn't be--' 'Boiled, William? I know, I know...'"

Wolfe, on the other hand, makes me sick. :P

I love the blue background--it goes so nicely with the header. I kind of miss the white post-background, but the text isn't hard to read.

The Director said...

"You do know how to make coffee?"
Marian- plus he's the got the greatest shouting voice ;) Very handy on ship. Bush is great- he ties with Horatio and Archie for me.

"Wolfe, why must you speak when you have nothing to say?"

XD

Helen said...

I think it is great... though I really think it's a little to dark. Besides black I think gray/ white would look nice or even a light blue.
Hope you are having fun in the land of hot and humid!

Perfectly Lovely

Hannah Joy said...

OHHHHH Abby: Horatio Hornblower quotes ALWAYS make my day. LOVE that last one. And yes, Horatio, Archie, and Bush are my favorites.

And...*Sob* I have no quote to counter with. Sheesh...I'll think on it.

Wait, wait: "That frog is a *good* frog."

Heehee!

The Director said...

Jessica-- Aw, thank you! <3 I adore your profile pic by the way ;)

Hannah- EPIC :D "I see why you joined the navy." heehee.

"There's folly and thoughtlessness(?) one the one side and daring and calculation on the other."

:D :D :D

Hannah Joy said...

HAHA!

"Mr. Hunter, *what* are you doing??"

"Weapons!"

:-D

The Director said...

"Learn your signals you little.... gentleman."
XD

"It's a mathematical certainty!"
<3

Lainie said...

Um... :) It's hard on the eyes and for some reason your changes are making your page load slower now.

~Miss Raquel said...

I really, really like it :) I DO suggest that you make the font a bit more brighter, or thicker...just white against the black makes it a little difficult to read.
Nice job, sweetie :)

Lauren said...

I love the new look!!! I actually really like the color scheme you've got going on... :) And I've always liked white writing; it's one of my favorites ;)
