...was yesterday.

Oops.

But, since I was busy laying in bed and feeling miserable/ill, we got to wait until today! Five second minute hour day rule and all.

As is typical for these wondrous holidays, you all get the pleasure of experiencing The Horrible Forced Scheme Plus!, this time made by Darkdata.

Happy third year, everyone. Maybe tomorrow I'll add the banner cycling people thought about/rainbow names for an extra six days or something.


If you don't like the scheme, great. Feel free to say why and maybe be constructive about it. If you're going to be a pain in the ass and bitch about it I'm going to ban you for the rest of the day until it's gone.

On the plus side, this theme does have a summer theme to it

We weren't even testing for that.

The forced scheme actually looks pretty awesome this time around. It really has a great summer feeling to it.

As an additional fun nugget of wisdom, the third anniversary of JL2 was actually a few weeks ago (7/03). Yesterday marks the day it went public, soon renamed to Jul.

(Though not before we had a bunch of really unfitting banners made)

I like it. I kinda have to turn post layouts off though, otherwise the alternating between dark and light makes me go aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

It was also my third anniversary here myself just yesterday. I wanted to write something for the occasion, but... I got lazy and had no motivation, as is typical of me. ;__;

Aside from the fact that I don't really like the color orange and that it's pretty bright for my tastes, it's actually quite good.
However, in terms of constructive criticism, I don't really like how similar the "newhot" image and the "hot" image look at a glance, making it trickier to pick out the threads I haven't read yet.

...

Oh, right. The anniversary.
Well, I haven't technically been here for three years yet, even though joined the general community a good 1600 days ago. I have seen this board go through a lot, though, and I suppose it's nice to reflect upon those events and then see it still going strong despite all that.

Anyway, this post is quickly becoming far more sentimental than I had planned, so I think it's best if I stop now.

Good times!

EET WAS LOOONG TRIP.

And so on. The layout is kinda bright for me, but I'll endure it for this anniversary!

Those (and the rest) are just copied from The Horrible Forced Scheme, where they aren't quite so hard to differentiate (the background is much lighter). I was going to change them but ran out of time/ideas.

I agree! The peachy and sky-blue colors work really well. Good work Darkdata!

Well this was unexpected but pleasant. It's not as bright as the old forced scheme I helped with which is a good thing. The light orange and blue go together pretty well.

And hooray for three years here. I'll be there in 4 days.

This is going to be my theme forever.

I love it so much.

Also maybe later we should cycle some banners! JUST LIKE OLD TIMES.

This isn't a scheme I'd use every day, but... it works. It's not as bad as I pictured it being, put it that way. Not at all.

Happy anniversary, everyone!

(EDIT: Actually, my background color works well with the darker blue...)

I love this theme! It's so, summer-like!

Now where's the confetti.

The forced scheme works quite well. I like it, probably even more than Cuppycakes13. +1 for rotating banners as well!

Happy third anniversary!

My eyes, my eyes!!!!

Its not so bad I guess. Happy 3 years, Jul!

But wait, I'm confused. Why is the anniversary today when the firsts posts were on 7/3/07?

(sorry to hear you're not feeling well, hope you get better)

I love this theme and I am going to keep it forever.

My only complain about it though is that the colored letters are too dark and harder to read for me. But that's just how my eyes work.

I'll try to make a good layout for my posts...

Hey, don't use that Twitter lingo here... We have plenty more than 140 characters to use the quote feature

Oh, and thanks for answering my question, hehe.
