Posted:Just thought I'd say I like the new scrolling gallery thing at the top of the page...

it's great to see some of the best pics without looking through everyone's individual gallery.

take care

Posted:I agree that the new gallery addition is cool!

However, is there some way I can change the color of the words (Home of Poi, Community, ...) just under it. Them being black makes them extremely hard to read in the dark gray. I've already tried changing the setting in my home that allows me to alter what the forum looks like, but it leaves the top alone.

Posted:ooh... I love the look of the site at the moment, the new gallery at the top of the page so cool and easy to use.
and the flames at the top of the page, even better, they're so prettyful... and everything else that has been changed... any reason as to why this place went in for a few changes?

Posted:I like putting my socks in the toastie maker before I put them on as it gives me nice toasty feet....which is odd as I didnt put my feet in too. Perhaps it is a toastie transverter-it gives things you put in it the ability to makle other things toasty.



and the top looks odd with massive grey bricks everywhere too.



Love the gallery idea though.

Posted:I have a small problem with the new look.... the electric blue background behind the forum. I'm dyslexic and the blue for some reason is making it harder for me to read the text. I've found this before with other colour combinations. Is there any way I can alter it back to grey or white? I've tried in display pref's but have so far failed.

Posted:that blue simply does not tone with my eyes....

but seriously, when matching colours, the tone (grayness) usually has to match.

you have a very deep intense blue, with a white/light beige colour - these dont go particularly well.

Posted:Is there a way to put photos in the gallery and NOT have them scroll up there?

I was all ready to finally put some sly photos up but would rather not have them for all the world to see (unless they actually went to my gallery)...

Just being a pest...

Posted:That was odd....

Just now..the top menu bar (Home of Poi, Community, News, etc) was all wooden.

Now it is back to being metalic...

and the bright blue background has gone!

Posted:Put it all back to grey. Thanks all for the feed back.
Was far too intense.
Dom is going to work on how we can better add a we bit of colour to the greyness of the site.

Glad you like the top images gallery scrolling thingy.
Pictures will only appear on the top of site after they have been viewed 50 times. They randomly change every 15 minutes to show popular images.
NYC "sly pictures"?? you are a pest wink when they click on the thumb pictures they are taken to your gallery.

Posted:I think it might be better if it did a random selection of 3 every few minutes or so.

or 4...there is that massive blue bit to teh rig t of the first picture....
But i do indeed like it!

(did you know i can browse HOP on my phone? the Google WAP site automatically converts HTML into WHTML (or whatever the acronym shoudl be).....its slightly confusing...but it does work!!!)


Dom... signatures are still not being added by default when you click "Reply". Is it possible to have all new PMs displayed at the top of the page so i cna be lazy and not just click ont eh down arrow?

Posted:ya i like the gallery scroll at the top. it's amusing to randomly look up and see your pictures up there. i was wondering why mine came up somewhat regularly. guess i have popular pictures confused

I was always scared with my mother's obsession with the good scissors. It made me wonder if there were evil scissors lurking in the house somewhere.

I wonder how random it really is? I wonder, if I am on HOP at a totally different time than I normally am, will I see a different batch of pics?
