4:[Schlachter]> Change Clock to a more fashionable one. (Analog JavaScript-based one coming up... give me a heads up whoever requested this) by [sammie h!]
6:status> The new yellow tone against the grey is very hard on the eyes, it makes the grey appear more purple and doesn't look good. I feel it would look nicer if the grey top border (With Mainstuff, your house etc), the grey on the right side bars (Wiki comments, poll-comments, etc) and your elfpack page (Badges, Treasury, description etc) were a different color, maybe tan or brown or something other than grey. [WonderTweek]
8:status> Replace the donor snakes with something better; suggestions? Contest? [Stephen]
9:status> Cut back on the blue glows around everything. Less is more! But don't completely remove them. [Stephen]
11:status> Upgrade side border ivy with higher quality. [Stephen]
12:status> Fix logo to fill space better. [Stephen]
Picture examples for [Stephen]'s requests <URL:stuff/aj/15609/SE0001.png>, <URL:stuff/aj/15609/SE0002.png>
13:status> Links on mainstuff (bright green) and hover links (grey) are unreadable against a light background, please make them darker. Visited links on mainstuff are still blue. Gief consistency.
14:status> Hide .TERMODATA 'cause it's borked (and why would people care about it even if it worked)
15:status> Change the remaining grey boxes to match? (.STATUSTABLETOP, .DATA, .CALENDARATSTART, .NEWSTEXT)


0:[Schlachter]> change general font color to #006600 [Stephen]
1:[Schlachter]> change background color of alternating side boxes (& other places with bright green) to #AF56AF [Stephen]
5:[Schlachter]><URL:view_forum.html?vnr=963&forumnr=1> change purple forum controls background to regular white
6:[sammie h!]><URL:stuff/aj/15609/1361229478.png>
3:[sammie h!]><URL:stuff/aj/15609/1361228986.png>
13:[kittykittykitty]>change guard box to green
14:[kittykittykitty]>Update top border to pretty one
7:[sammie h!]> Remove the animated donor borders -- no animated images! [Stephen]
10:[sammie h!]> Make the blue glows a shade of forest-like green, should match things better. [Stephen]

Here is an example of how this works:
Take a free spot (please be descriptive, don't worry about length & do NOT change the "status" tag) & attach your profile ID to it if you wish crew members to contact you about your request:
2:status>I want everything to be so green it hurts! [Schlachter]
A CSS crew member will take over the task & make it bold to show it is in progress:
2:[Schlachter]>I want everything to be so green it hurts!
When completed, the crew member will move the task to the "Completed" section.

If you are somehow unsatisfied with the result, do NOT re-post it in the requests section. Contact the crew member & make the request via a PM that you are unsatisfied. Your help is greatly appreciated with this task & our thanks knows no end! Please don't forget to advertise the style sheet if you like it by linking to it like this: Install Dynamic Elfpack Stylesheet.

2013-02-19 [Stephen]: I'm going to request changes to the .css stylesheet we're looking to push to have changed into the new index.


General font is a little too light, I believe it should be a slightly darker shade of green so it has better contrast. Try a shade more like #006600

The bright, seafoam green on widows like the new message window is too bright. I actually like Deg's idea of purples, so try making #AF56AF the background color.

2013-02-19 [Schlachter]: Isn't it a bit too soon to contemplate implementing this style sheet?

Added tasks, see above.

2013-02-19 [Stephen]: I don't mean for it to be a change right away.
However, ideally I would like the default index.css changed: That's always the biggest complaint I get about Elfpack. Greys and graphics.

2013-02-19 [sammie h!]: Yeah, it has gone out-dated, but you will have to confirm that with [Hedda] first as we don't want him blowing his fuse on you. :)

2013-02-19 [Schlachter]: Well, point was to get as many people saying "I approve" of this style sheet so the haters can just go hate themselves in a corner for hating.

I've been looking at Elfpack code, & honestly... I don't think [Hedda] gives a damn about this site. It pays for itself in ads... maybe a little bit more because it earns him clicks... & that's all. I'm more worried about haters.

2013-02-19 [Deg]: Well, point was to get as many people saying "I approve" of this style sheet so the haters can just go hate themselves in a corner for hating.

Sorry, this made me laugh. Well said, really.

But I agree, too early to talk about implementing changes. I don't wanna go off half cocked and start showing everyone an unfinished project. That will draw the haters by the tenth power. We just gotta keep plugging away. It'll come together eventually.
