Just a heads up that there will be some downtime probably tomorrow as the site gets revamped a little. :D

Just so you know...

Um, is there a waiting room or something for us to use and mingle in while we wait for it to come back up? I mean, how cruel can you get...putting us out in the cold without an option in hand?? :rolleyes:

Shouldn't take too long - just swapping out some graphics and the templates. Besides the rest of the site will be live at the time. :D

We're back open for business. I still have some work to do on the graphics - but we're good to go. Hopefully it's easy on the eyes and no one is going into epileptic seizures because of the new color scheme :D

I was having withdrawal symptoms whilst the site was down :p... When it came back up, i thought the colours i saw were as a result of my prolonged absence of ... ... .... a few minutes... :eek:

I like it too - but is it just me or is it a tiny bit slower?

Shouldn't be any different as in speed. I've only made changes to the template and replaced the graphics.

Well, I guess I'll have to be the voice of dissension, lol. I do not like the colour scheme at all. WAY too bright for these tired old eyes.

But hey, I'm obviously in the minority....so I'll just pop on some shades when I visit. :laugh:

Pinababy69, I am glad you broke the ice first...cause I am not too fond of the colors either..I liked the soothing swirls of bieges...and at times the holiday colors...but this is in your face, WOW....like..ouch??

Reminds me of the USA flag! LOL..When I first saw it I thought maybe it was a holiday coming up...

Yes..very bold...but..hey...these are only the second tired eyes looking at it...other than that, glad to be back! That waiting room sucked! Too much smoke...

:lolup:

I trust you too much, it took me several minutes and 4 attempts before I realized you fooled me!

#D5D3D6 is the correct one.. :)
If you're using photoshop - make a screenshot of the page and open it in PS. Then use the eyedropper tool and check your icon, and check the table background color it's in. You'll see a slight difference: #D3D3D3 is the color used in the template - #D5D3D6 is the one you're using. They are just about the same color. You really can't tell the difference. :D

OK I do like the new color scheme of the content.
Can I say though that it clashes with the main theme now, the golden toned background that matches the "casinomeister" in the header. I suppose because it's the trademark it can not be changed....however if it could maybe it could be a color that would synch up with the red, white and blue more?

Just my opinion (and my analness about coordinating;)).

Do you mean the blue buttons clashing? (buttons = quote, reply, thanks, etc.) I could change the buttons to the yellow/gold scheme if that works better.
