Categories look like shit

Recommended Posts

Can we remove the category labels in the Entertainment board, or at least make them all the same colour? They look abrasive and distracting right now:

@CitizenVectron A lot of people were complaining that they wanted subforums and this was the solution to not having a bajillion fucking barely-active subforums again. The idea is that if you click on one of those it'll filter to just that category, and the different colors are to make it easy to spot, say, a new Anime thread.

The answer to removing them from Entertainment is "absolutely not" and the answer to making them a single color is "only if more people complain".

I really like the idea of categories and wish that people had used tags to this effect before, but....  I think that the color scheme might need to be adjusted a bit, if possible.

I find that some of those are really illegible. White on yellow? Yuck! :p 

 

That they're color-coordinated is great, that makes things really quick, but I wonder if some other text color might not be easier to read...

I think it is weird that for once I am not the one complaining. I am a massive complainer, it is what I am good at. But I am happy with the changes... The YT videos need to embed at a smaller size, but shit is looking good.

 

If they have to be one color then it isn't too bad I suppose, but they should stay for sure. I can see why people don't like the lucky charm aesthetic tho.

Yellow would be the most prominent color in comics. Finding a shade that was as non-offensive as it currently is was rather difficult.

 

All sports colors are official colors, as are the game systems. Movies is Oscar gold, music is Billboards blue. Books is a paper brown. Television is LG pink. Wrestling is WWE red. Gaming Equipment is Power A orange. And PC is just purple.

The issue isn't the color, the issue is the font color on the color.

Tried that. Couldn't get it to work.

Yeah it's the color of the text that is impossible to read on some of them. I haven't looked at it on mobile yet to see whether it's better there, but on my desktop and laptop, anime, books, comics, and movies are all pretty much impossible to read. And before you ask, yes, I do have glasses, and yes, I'm wearing them. :p

@SFLUFAN Maybe at least choose colours that are easier on the eyes? Something like this palette, for example:

Something that will not make our eyes burn as much due to the gamut and contrast.

I'll second that I like the darker color tags, but the bright ones should be changed to a darker color.

Yes I can see them!

 

General Entertainment and movies still a bit iffy.

 

FWIW General Entertainment doesn't necessarily have to be super visible from the way I'm thinking about what we're doing here, we just needed a catch-all if we were going to force people to select a prefix to post a thread.

At least looking on my phone, the new colors look much better. I'll check my pc later.

I would also like to voice my support for the tag system against the thousand sub forums.

 

Agreed.

I know you guys are trying to get all of this situated so I don't mean to pile on, but it's really hard to scan the entertainment board right now:

The headlines should stand out more than anything else, but all I see are tags and categories.

I like the new system.  Clicking on a tag to isolate and filter that type works good as well. You can always tweak the colors.

@Wild - take a look at the PlayStation (dark) theme.  I think you'll find it more to your liking.

 

Thanks, but I can't use light text on a dark background. It gives me migraines.

I can either make the post title font slightly larger, or attempt to make the tags (not pre-fixes) a little less noticeable...

Is there a way to make it so that the categories aren't at the beginning of the line, but at the end? Right now it's impossible to scan down the titles and read them because there is so much more clutter going on. Or at least eliminate user-added tags because they add nothing except clutter. I also can't use a dark theme because it hurts my eyes too much.

No, because they're prefixes.

@Wild @CitizenVectron - I turned off the tags for the Entertainment board, only prefixes will be allowed from this point forward

 

Thanks. That should help a bit. I'll try to figure out a CSS script this weekend to clean it up more to my tastes.
