As you probably already know, Ozzu Webmaster Forum looks different! We have been working on integrating a new template and finally decided to go live with it. By default members will be using this new template now. I would like to thank Unflux for creating the new logo for Ozzu and I would like to thank lostinbeta for creating the new menu.

The old template is still available for those who do not like the new look. If you wish to change it back simply goto your profile and change the "Board Style" back to VereorSpiderMan.

Please vote and give me your comments on our new look. Also if you find any bugs please let us know so we can fix them.

Enjoy! :D

It is based on the smartDark template by Smartor. I had to adjust many things and will be probably changing more things as time goes on. I will probably change some of the icons used on this template. I do not really care for the checkmarks in the boxes. Not sure what you guys think though!

Is this poll closed? I don't have the ability to vote.

I like it, it is more defined than the last one. With the last one I had a lot of trouble distinguishing content because the colors were all so dark, and so is my monitor color (even at brightest settings) so to me there was no seperation between anything, it was confusing.

Where is this one has lighter colors to define areas and is much easier to seperate visually.

In closing.... SWEEEEET!!!!!


Are you going to have multiple styles? If so are you going to make ligher colored ones as well?

Although we can vote right now, the poll shows that 100% of us like the new look, which seems accurate :)

It's nice, just a very big jump from the past design. Not bad.

I have been debating going with light colored schemes. If I do go light colored in the future I will most likely remove all dark colored schemes because the avatars, icons, and other things that are not template specific will not work together very well. What I mean by this is many of the graphics like avatars are created either for dark backgrounds, or light backgrounds. So unless I find a way around that, I would have to stick with light colored only, or dark colored only.

If anybody votes something other than the first option, I would really appreciate if you could clarify here why you voted the way you did. Letting us your exact thoughts will help make it easier to create a better format for the future. Thanks again :)

I love it. Much better than the last. I voted for yes, but with a light background. You and I already talked about that. I just think it has a much more professional quality with a lighter look. If you do look around for a lighter theme, I can tell you right now, don't base it on icicle. That theme is missing several options including a few administrative ones. Same thing with redice. (Both were designed by the same person and have the same flaws.)

Vereor and Smartor themes seem to be the most consistant and stick to the original subSilver variable naming scheme for the most part.

Great work on the new look. All of you.

I prefer the old design and I am glad I can still use that, but it looks very nice all the work you put into the new one. Well done :D

I am curious what you like better about the old design. Anything that you can comment on? Just colors? format? logo?

I voted for "Yes, but I think a light colored design would be better." because I do really like it, I like it better than the last version and I think it is nice. But for my personal preference, I like lighter colors. I am a very neutral kind of guy.

I voted no but a lighter design would work or whatever thta comment was :-P

I have just grown accustomed to the old design, and the new design has some nice effects, like the icons and such, it just doesn't seem to "fit" with the board. It is a very artistically pleasing theme, just doesn't match well. The old design is slim and wasn't as biased (like with the dragon, it seems like it should be a fantasy forum or something). I don't really know how to explain it too well, like Musik said the other design is "fat". I think I light design similar to the current one might work better, with less of an emphasis on the dragon, maybe setting it horizontally or something of the sort.
