That time the message board was white for a while...

... I thought I was losing my mind, or maybe dreaming!!

I can cope with the black on white I guess... but on my screen (27" iMac, resolution 2560 x 1440) the text is almost too small to read.  I can take off my glasses and peer at it with my nearsighted eyes from 8" away and read it, otherwise I am struggling.  

Ah, wait,  just found an optioning Safari to change Settings For This Website and enlarge it.  150% now, Better.  

or on the Mac, press Command and either the - or + keys to zoom in or out.

yeah I also thought the same. Getting used to whiteness. I miss dark stuff.

Nice!!

it looks like it went back to its traditional view. Will it keep changing? I really like darkness as it is right now.

I agree with Metalmadcat. Dark looks better especially for this traditional arts still with some mysterious and cool feeling...

if you are going to make changes, then the orange on white or the grey on white both look good... although white as a background is quite light or bright, but yeah I think I am happy with keeping it darker as it is.  just maybe change the banner if you want a slightly new look.  like using the slide from your film, that's cool, but altering around the colours can cause some disorientation or dissassociation for some of us.     

Just messing around with looks. I like the old style best. 

Black is best!

Hey Nick, Yeah Black is best, I agree, you got good eye, according to netflix though orange is the new black lol.. 

sorry going off topic here, a little bit of ego blowing going on now..  lol...  you blew me away with your adam and eve film.. awesome, I loved the feeling of the movie, it's not just the animation, the puppets, the music, the style, the ideas,  your own take on the apple sin saga, the frogs lol so funny, the sense of humor, lovely, there's something more going on, I don't know what it is but it's inspiring.. that's what I hope to find in my own animation, one day soon, finding that something more, I don't want my animation to be perfect, but to have that appeal to it, I think you got it there in that movie, must be quite empowering to get to that level..  awesome!  well done..  :)  so many great people on this site, you definitely one of them Nick... just saying..
