    I don't like it.
    Whilst I appreciate it's a lighter theme, it looks very much like the default for every single forum out there. At least theres a bit of personality to this one!

    I went ahead and added it for now. It's not much like our older styles but it is a better classic theme than this one. It's selectable from the bottom left. Over time I will try to get something better with a more appropriate header image in there... :p

    The grey and orange theme will stay the default.

    The current Master theme is easy on my old eyes. That other one is nothing but sheer pain for my retinas.

    With just a bit of color adjustment, it would look just like the old default theme.

    Regarding old logo — the main issue is that we have no sources of that. Only the "baked in" copies of the graphics on the website. That's one of the reasons we tried to make an updated BU logo a couple of years ago (you can see the square version of it in BU podcast). Dark skin uses a derivative from that I made to match the simple flat style of the skin.

    The BeyondUnreal Classic theme is a vast improvement. Well done.

    Hi guys, I'd appreciate it if some of you would look over at this thread Lynx posted in Site Discussion, Lynx and I have posted some logo concepts over there, and I'm going to post some more when I've done them. Any feedback or comments would be good, cheers.

    If I zoom chrome to 90% the font seems ok.

    I also hate the orange, but that's what Epic is going with for the UT4 logo so...

    I could give a shit about the logo.

    I'd like to focus on the overall layout still.
    as TWD pointed out, when you use the browser Zoom function, you can "fix" the size issue manually. something about this whole theme still feels too large/bulky/bold. and I would still like to see the 'Lighter' theme modified to be softer. I'd love to replicate the BuF color theme we had just prior to this. the soft gray/bluish thing.

    There’s no “size issue” to “fix”, you just have a preference for smaller text. So we could change the theme and I could use custom CSS to bump it up on my end, or we could leave it as-is and you could bump it down on yours. I don’t care much which happens.
