Hi people. :)

As some of you know I've been playing around with some forum themes / styles. (The colour schemes)

So if you scroll right to the bottom of the forum, all the way down, past all the content, and past the footer, you'll see a link which says "ElectriciansForums.net" next to a paintbrush.

Click that and you'll get some options for colour schemes.

I've started to work on our Christmas theme. Thought the standard Green and Red one would be very apt. But then noticed it was a shocking colour scheme to play with so did a "Frozen" theme. So basically icey rather than green and red.

I've toned down the oranges around the main standard style. Mainly the quoted text box, and forum username box. That was a bit full on I admit. Just needed to get it done when I did it though. Now I've had a lazy day in I thought I'd improve on it.

Then there's also a Nighttime Reading one. Which I'm still working on and will come back to. Using sciences theories of having no blues in any of the colours (and that means actually in the colours that makeup a colour) should help you drift off. We associate blue with morning, and our minds don't shut off so easy.

Most phones and tablets now have automatic settings that tone down the screen brightness, and also colour hues, to match sundown. So I'd like to find a way to automatically do that based on where you are. That'll not be around the corner I don't think the technology is there yet but it wont be long. In the meantime people can select the nighttime reading option when they're in bed, and it'll not contribute to your dodgy sleep should you have any. :)

On the same note you should all set your notifications up well on your devices (do not disturb options) so that in the evening you're not being distracted with threads and posts on the forum. And save them for the morning instead.

So let me know what you think of the themes and what you think needs improving on or changing etc.

Keep this thread about the themes for me. :) (looking at you - you know who you are) ;)

They all need some i's dotting and t's crossing and stuff but the guts are there.

I am sorting out some snow drifted on some menus and the logo etc. Maybe the odd santa had and christmas tree somewhere. :) :D :p

If anybody would like some themes making for other holidays, let me know. :) Be more than happy to knock something up.
 
TL;DR
New themes available on the forum! Scroll down to the bottom and click the paint brush to change them. :)
