New look for WeTheArmed
« on: May 25, 2011, 03:35:48 AM »
We've implemented a new default theme for a cleaner look as well as faster load times.  We feel that WTA will be a better served by this new look, and hope everyone likes it.

The old themes are still available under the Look and Layout settings in your profile for those preferring them.

We hope you enjoy the new look, and thank you for your support!

     :scrutiny  Quite a shock when I opened the page after just being on an hour ago.

    That said, I like it.  Different but much easier on the eyes than the old default page or the "evil" settings. (Was that what it was called?  I have had that as my default for so long I forgot what it was)
    Yes I live in California.  Please dont hold that against me.

    I personally liked the old theme (just classt looking  ;D), however this seems to be much faster loading, so that's a plus.

    I like the new look. Easier on the eyes and cleaner. Also looks more modern.

    Certainly wasn't expecting this. Not totally sold on it, mostly because I don't like abrupt changes, but I think it's growing on me.

    Should've said "unexpected changes," but either way I've made up my mind: I like it.

    I liked it, really liked it, but somehow It remembered me too much to Everydaynodaysoff  :facepalm, it's good thou, I just don't wanna mentally associate WTA with the other.

    Besides, Since I browse with images and flash deactivated at work the old look is easier on the eye.

    Shock is a good word to use. Kinda miss the old look cause of the Parchment like feel of the site. Buit this loads faster and seems good enough for werkin'. So I guess I like it. But next time give use a little warning? My heart nearly palpatated! LOL!

    Keep in mind that there's a very simple way to change the theme back to whatever you like.

    It looks nice, and I do like the targets and stuff on the top.  But after I realized which gun forum I was on, I promptly changed back to sullen madness.  In fact, I'm 1 out of 5 people who still have it.

    Does that make me a surly curmudgeon?
