I think different colors would be a good idea!  Because you can't please EVERYONE with one thing...
Personally I like the green as it is, but I'm open to change  Smiley

The new look is great, but...

Would there be any way at all to move the toolbar on the left back over to the right hand side? Those of us still using older monitors have to scroll sideways in every single post as a result.

Thanks!

Wow!!! I adore this new Craftster.  Everyday I find out about something new such as just looking at the images in a post, tags and recent with pics.  LOVE it!!!  I'm a very happy craftster. Grin

Yeah, that's what I thought too. The tiny dots pattern should now ONLY be in the logo image at the top, right? Or is anyone seeing them anywhere else?

The logo and the buttons (Most Recent Posts, etc.)--they're still supposed to be in the buttons aren't they?  Because I'm still seeing them.

[Edited to add:  Okay...now the dots are gone from the buttons and are just in the logo.  That just happened--for me, anyway--within the last few minutes.]




I love the dots too! They remind me of a comic book! Grin But at least one person said they were flickering on her monitor so I wonder how many people they look bad for. Hmmm.... I'm trying to come up with a dot pattern that's more spaced out but that still looks good.

The dots flicker on my monitor ONLY when they're moving (when I'm scrolling up or down the page, I mean).  Otherwise they stay still and behave themselves.  They do make the text over them look a little fuzzy, but it's not bad.  The green looks nice too, kind of springy.  (I'm on a laptop running Windows Vista and IE 7, by the way.)


And since I haven't mentioned it before, I'd just like to say that I too love the redesign!

Hi zendaisy. Yep -- the dots are only at top logo now. Your buttons were probably showing up as the cached version (w/ dots) and then when you refreshed, they became the new version.

I've gotten used to having the buttons on the left side now.  Gotta say... didn't love the idea of it before, but doesn't phase me at all now.  Yay.

Leah, it's not the design at all that is causing the flickering. It's the resolution settings on the users end. How fast their pc refreshes that causes it. If they change their resolution, it's fine and dandy.

I don't want you to have to jump through hoops when it's not on your end. I feel bad for even mentioning it in the first place when it was user error.

The green I see is very springy. I'm loving it with the background. Feels happy.

The colors everyone is seeing is also on their end lol And y'all, that all depends on what kind of graphics card you have.

My dh gave me a huge lesson in all this when I asked him what could be causing my issues. I took that to heart because I never want to hear him repeat it rofl.

This is also an issue on the computer I use most often. I do click on the ads from time to time (I live in a rural area, and buy most of my craft supplies over the 'net, so I always look at the craft supply ads), but I have to scroll sideways on every page of every thread I read. I tried changing the size of the page, so it all fits, but then the font is smaller than I like for reading. I don't mind scrolling alllll that much, since I've gotten used to it, but I do kinda miss having the ads on the other side.

Not that big of a deal, though, really. I love Craftster.  Kiss

I couldn't figure out why I was still seeing the dots...and then I dusted off the screen...

And, now that I've had a chance to cruise the site more, I love it even more (although I still wish I could organize my bookmarks better Wink )!

I really like how clean the home page is, and the new graphic icons are great too! I haven't encountered any glitches that I didn't already have (but I think those are just computer issues, not site issues- sometimes when I hit back to go to "New Replies to Your Posts" it either gets rid of all of the posts, or shows only one, or something like that. When I hit refresh, it's all good).

So thanks again for making Craftster such a fun place to visit!

I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this but...

As I was standing in the fabric store today I was trying to remember information from one of my private messages.  Being the geek I am, I used my cell phone to get to craftster, log in, and get to my inbox.  The only problem was that I had given the message I needed a label and moved it out of the inbox and there was no way to get into the labels so I couldn't get to the message Sad

I have no idea how to do this or if this is even possible, but I can see this being a handy feature.

Thanks for all of your hard work Leah!
