2012-11-10 [hanhepi]: I love your wiki stats, Silvie. XD
I also like the idea tabbing the house like that, rather than having all those buttons up there. Maybe Stats and Badges could be tabs as well, further streamlining the house area? Clutters up the tabs area though, so I dunno. For the council/guard badges being prominent, maybe have small versions next to the name, where moods go now, put the moods in smaller print below the name, like this (where b in parenthesis indicates uber important yet tiny badges):

You have no mood in your image for me to use here
2012-11-10 [hanhepi]: I tried that with the h3 tag for name, and regular bold for mood, but you end an h3 and it gives you a line break. So, picture it with bigger username.
2012-11-10 [SilverFire]: Oooooh. Donor badges could be tabbed. :O I even thought of that once before and then totally forgot it - there could be like a 'trophy cabinet' tab that was where all the competition badges are displayed. :3
Not sure about tiny badges, simply because they don't scale well. They're not vector images. They pixelate massively when you shrink them.
2012-11-10 [Triola]: I am way for the tabbing of donor badges! And maybe displaying them in a sort of listey, more orderly fashion? Like
Badge - wiki

Lists would be long and a hassle now that the badges are in your house, but that doesn't matter if they have their own tab :D
2012-11-10 [SilverFire]: I was thinking tabled:
2012-11-10 [Triola]: That would work too :) anything but how they are now :P
2012-11-10 [Triola]: Also, going off Silvie's tab thing, imagine if we removed the leafy sidebar too and then made most of the buttons look the same!
(And nevermind the font, didn't know which one to use, so I just Arialed the shit out of it)
2012-11-10 [SilverFire]: Verdana, I think, for future reference.
2012-11-10 [Triola]: Cheers :)
2012-11-10 [M!]: Just that looks a million times cleaner than et right now. I wish the green could die.
2012-11-10 [Triola]: I think we all wish the green could die. But I could live with the green if we could just get rid of some of the clutter around here and make things cleaner and more orderly >.<
2012-11-10 [iippo]: Well some folks like the green and the colour is really easy to change with stylesheets, so there can be a number of alternate stylesheets made to choose from. As long as as much as possible is done with CSS (buttons and such... I think currently it's only the top buttons that are not CSSable. Oh, and maybe some others too. Nvm :P)
2012-11-10 [Triola]: I agree. All buttons should be CSS-ed and then made much more uniform.
2012-11-11 [hanhepi]: Green can be a classy color when the right ones are used, like in Silvie's older examples. For me, reading black text on these current greens is quite nice, I can sit here all day and it doesn't strain my eyes. Black text on a white background though I can only sit and read for a few minutes before I have to squint, then about 20 minutes after that, my eyes hurt. So as long as there is a color, I would probably be fine.
As rapidly as what's popular in design changes, and as slowly as we seem to be able to make changes here, I don't think we should try to go too trendy with a redesign. Hell, at this rate by the time we get it done, this look will be back in style. XD And don't say it won't, just look at the fashion industry and look at the god awful shit from the 1980's that has come back and people are wearing.

I'm gonna call you on that one. That's not how internet design works at all. It changes in response to new technology (mobile devices, updated code) and to become over all more functional. There is no way in hell things will swing back this way unless society crumbles, all information is lost and we have to rebuild from the ground up. That's just... no. Even if you're joking... no.
2012-11-11 [Triola]: Archived the two new images before they disappear in the comment history.
2012-11-12 [Chel.]: Thanks!
2012-11-12 [SilverFire]: We could probably also get rid of that line explaining that "this is your house". <_< And it would be nice if all those buttons at the top could be shifted elsewhere, (the edit profile button into the profile itself, and some of the others into the top nav, maybe)
2012-11-12 [Triola]: The 'Upload art' and 'Upload folder of art' ones could naturally go somewhere underneath the 'Gallery' tab, and the 'Write a review' one maybe somewhere underneath the 'Diary' tab?
2012-11-12 [SilverFire]: If there was a "contribute" option in the redesigned DDM-style top nav, then 'upload art/folder of art/review/sit
2012-11-12 [Triola]: Haha, I hear you :P
