Socoder -> Off Topic -> Festive Overhaul

I'm not seeing any baubles Jay... The site's looking very un-Christmas-like, despite all our chatter.

I was thinking that, too.. Maybe I'll make that my creative thing for tomorrow..
We do have a Xmas (2017) theme in the themes, but ... it's a bit shit, IMO, so I haven't ever forced it upon you all!!
I might give it a go tomorrow, see if I can come up with something that looks as nice as my old Xmas theme.. the one with the lovely ribbon and the little SoCoder gift tag...

Yeah..


Meanwhile, Tricky's already changed to a Xmas avatar, so .. maybe it's time we all did that, too?

Behold... A Bauble..

Now all I have to do is design a theme to go with it, that doesn't look like complete arse!

The theme, though.. Not so much!!

Head into the themes and try out "2019 - Jayenkai - Bauble", and let me know..
Yea or Nay?

(I think Nay!)

Nay.

Yeah, the red is just a bit... too much, methinks. But the spinning bauble is nice

Jut noticed the "candy cane" striped Reply button.

Perhaps just hang some fairy lights across the top, a la BlitzBasic.com

You'll be happy to know..

1. The Redness has been reduced to about half saturation.
2. Fairy lights have been hung.

I didn't want to add lights.
SyntaxBomb does the lights each year, and I'd rather not step on that..
But fuck it.
Lights it be!

Also, oddly, the lights within boxes aren't showing up on the iPad. Only the top bar and the text entry box have lights.
Not sure why that is.. bloody css!!!

Flashing is being worked on.
I need to (somehow) export an animated gif from either JavaScript (rendered here) or Blitz perhaps..?

Ok...
Anything else to add?

Note : I've made the main forum box lights NOT twinkle, because that was really distracting!!! Only the top and input boxes do.
Oh, and code boxes, too.

Is it still "too" red, or have I toned it down enough?

It'snot too bad. I've left it on since the earlier update. Christmas is all about tacky and gaudy - look at all those Xmas jumpers!, so it'll do

I like it. I think the lights are a fun touch.

(I didn't see the earlier version though.)
