We need a better theme though

Postby Entity » December 17th, 2015, 12:39 pm

Maybe I can try to port the assets from the old Xenforo theme over to this one during my winter break? I'm not sure just how much work that would be.

If you can then by all means, that would be great. In the meantime, though, I'll try and find a nice free theme.

I'm actually kind of partial to the super-clean style of default phpBB. I mean, it's far too generic to use permanently, but it's not inherently bad.

The only really strange thing is having Avatar's on the right instead of the left. What a strange decision to make that the default.

The colour scheme can be changed on that one too, so we could match it to the old OMB colours

Ravaoi is my personal favorite right now. It has a simple, sleek design and does some cool responsive stuff and other things that just make me feel fuzzy in the web dev part of my heart.

An update to the favicon would also be nice; I know it's supposed to be the miner from the logo, but the design seems to draw more attention to the negative space than the actual icon itself.

Also, if possible, can the icons be scaled so at least the widths are consistent? The fact that the right hand side of the profile icons don't line up is slightly jarring.
