Girlydragon suggested to me that I flip my layout. So I tried it.

Which do you guys prefer?

I liked it better before. Most people like having it on the right, so I felt yours stood out more. Plus, it looks weird facing left now.

You already made a thread. There was no need to bump this one.

Figure out how to make your own layout if you really NEED one that badly.

I might as well update my layout. I've got nothing better to do.

It's not too bad, though the way the image is stretched is rather distracting. Also, you could fade out the right side of the image so that it matches the background color you chose, instead of having that abrupt cutoff.

Yeah, I was just waiting for someone to finally notice that... no one has yet.

By "the way the image is stretched" do you mean up and down or left and right?

Your image stretches horizontally according to the size of the window. Try and change the size of the window and you will see the problem.


It makes it pretty terrible to be frank.

I originally made this layout for another board, and I guess it just wont work here...
I'll just scrap it and restart one for this board using the same image.

I just have one question, could I see your code? I wont take it or anything, I just want to study it and see how to make a good layout here, because I obviously don't know how to.

View -> Source
Tools -> Developer Tools -> Page Source
etc.

I'm sure most people are fine with that as long as you're not just completely ripping it off. Your old layout was fine, except for the image stretching, though.

You can look at my code and use it if you so wish, but I wouldn't recommend it.

It's rather badly coded, and probably won't work well as a base.

I even wrote a fixed version of your layout girly, which also fixed the weird looking front of the boat! :I

I think it turned out rather well, actually. I just kind of looked at how yours was coded and then went and rewrite my whole code using the same way.

Hahaha no.. it's supposed to be like this, but I accidentally moved the picture around on my server and forgot to change it in the layout. I'm stupid...

mm, Angel...

Fancy schmancy extra stuff now.
I don't think that I've made any actual major changes to this layout for several months now other than other certain things.

So, my layout. Had it for awhile.

I've made some changes to it in the past few days, obviously, over a fair amount of time. I rerendered the outside to the left, making it much clearer but also slightly lighter than it was before, and because of that I had set my name as "unknown gender" to have it be more readable. The outside image is created through a slight hack, where I set negative margins on the table that makes up my layout, and that image, the border, and my normal background image are actually all part of the same image.

I've killed my sidebar text. Originally it was through the use of my custom title, but after I bemoaned the inability to drop the level bar, Inu stepped in and just gave me a custom sidebar with nothing in it. Thanks, Inu :3

After that, I changed it to using a shadow around my name text (provided you don't modify the page zoom too much) to make it readable with any gender setting. I accomplished THIS by drawing a transparency filter for the background image, with a background color of #080010. I played around with different alpha values to make it look decent, and yes, I did the anti-aliasing on it by hand. (Probably didn't have to, it just seemed in the spirit of things.) But then Inu again was like "Hey just for you I coded in this thing so you can have an actual text shadow on your name" and I also coopted that functionality to style the name.

After that, I spent about an hour on image editing trying different ways to get a darkened status bar, since I was noticing as it was that it was basically unreadable on most schemes. I blended the lighter preexisting color across the text body's background image with a 0.5 alpha value. Had to make a few simple edits to get it to look right, but the main issue was figuring out what exact technique I wanted to use.

right now i think it looks pretty good

Oh hey, I can read your name now!


To celebrate my 6000th post, I made a new version of my layout celebrating my current big obsession, Super Mario Sunshine. Admittedly, it's not as fun to look at as the Egg Carrier, but I'm happy with it. The Shine Sprite model is the one from the game, though I may eventually make my own custom hi-poly version of it and replace it.

Amusingly, I updated my layout for my 4,000th post, and I think it looks very good!

But what I'm going to start doing is using my post layout to reflect my Super Metroid hack. Each new tileset I design, I'll set as my post layout while I'm in that area. Cool, no?

Don't believe I've posted my latest here yet.
So yeah, as per usual, randomized side image, randomized base background colour overlayed with a semi-transparent image.
And a hell of a load of box-shadow hax to achieve the glass effect xD

Aaand again~!
but with a different approach.
This was mainly for testing the full extent of non-normal+ sidebar hax.
