Vote on new board display styles! VOTING CLOSED

Post by shrapnel » Mon Oct 28, 2013 8:31 pm

Votes are in. There was a 5-way tie between the ones with nine votes each, so I made everything unnecessarily complicated by assigning a number to each one and picking three numbers at random. So... here we are. I have no idea when we're going to implement any of it, but this is what we have for now.

Dirty Board 15% [ 33 ]
Bl@ck 9% [ 19 ]
Softwood 6% [ 13 ]
khaki_black 6% [ 12 ]
AcidTech 5% [ 11 ]
Darkicy 5% [ 11 ]
ProFormell 5% [ 10 ]
khaki 4% [ 9 ]
CA Vintage 4% [ 9 ]
Pro_Ubuntu Lucid 4% [ 9 ]


For reasons that I am not aware of, I can't edit the poll to close it. Rather than locking the whole thread to prevent comments, I'm posting a snapshot of the votes as they stand at this moment, for posterity, and these are the numbers that we are going with. Problem solved, but here's a screenshot anyway.

Old post wrote:As you may have noticed, things are looking a little bit different around here, depending on what board styles you use. We've had to toss a substantial number of the old display styles, because they are no longer supported/compatible with the current software. This has left us with a total of two usable styles right now, and they are ugly. Zombie Squad is all about form and fashion, so that means it's time to find more options for our aesthetically-conscious user base.

"But wait, Shrapnel," I can hear you asking, "what if you pick styles that are ugly and make my eyes hurt? You have the design sensibilities of a colorblind whelk! Who put you in charge of this?" The answer to the second question is, Crypto, and I'll add that KJ4VOV is also at fault for any displeasing choices co-heading up this deal with me, so don't blame me for anything. The more salient point is that assigning blame doesn't matter, because you, yes, YOU, will be voting to determine the ten styles that we eventually go with!


I apparently have a liberal definition of the date 10/26/13, but let's pretend it was on purpose. It's time to vote for your favorite ten board styles. You have until November 6th, 2013 to cast your vote. Unless I forget which day it is again, in which case, you have until then.

Listed here are the styles that were submitted by users for consideration. Look through them, if you are so inclined. Don't just look at the pretty colors- pay attention to where user interface buttons and links are. Do you always look to the bottom right side of a post to find the quote button? Perhaps you should look for themes that contain that functionality. That kind of thing. Having chosen your top ten, or top whatever number, cast your votes for the ones you'd like to see.

Keep in mind that Prosilver and subsilver2 are going to stay as they are, so you'll have those options if you hate all of the listed styles. Also keep in mind that the display styles listed are as-is. We can't modify/customize them with a different background image or color settings, as that causes problems, apparently.

If your votes are invalid or something, try switching board styles to a supported one. Post in here if something is still wrong.

This is correct. Styles will not be modified or customized. They get installed just the way the designer created them. Customizing styles can lead to problems down the road, and is one of the reasons we're doing this remodel.

What style works best for you is entirely up to you. This is why Shrap made each choice a link to the sample of that style, so you can look at each one and decide which to vote for based on how it looks to you on your monitor/phone/tablet/etc.

The styles that are hardest to read have the most amount of votes.
I can't help but think that's because they are the two top-most shown.

I agree with ZombieGranny, I find those easier on my eyes and to read myself too. If a display has too much white or light colors it hurts my eyes and makes it really hard to read for long, so I tend to prefer some of the darker displays. I do have to say though I don't like too dark either, a sort of nice mellow in between would be optimal.

Looks like Dirty Board will be the top choice, but then I sort of guessed it would be when I first saw it. It does sort of fit the site. Still lots of votes for other good choices. I am excited to eventually get the new styles. It will be like an early x-mas present. :clap:

One thing I haven't seen mentioned yet, how many new display styles will be added? We get to vote for 10, but how many will be chosen and installed? Will you be only taking the top 5 or 10? Or just 2 or 3?

BTW thank you Shrapnel and KJ4VOV for all the hard work you put in with this display change over. I am sure it seems like you get tons of complaints abut why can't we have this or that, so I just want to say thanks for everything. The good and bad, it all is great you did so much for this community. Whole heartedly thank you for it all.

The reason they are at the top, is those were the styles that people voiced the most interest in early on. There are still a lot of lower on the list choices that have been getting a decent amount of votes though.

From what I understand as one of the people who made suggestions for styles.
The list was compiled as interest in styles was voiced and a tally of how many people suggested each. So the last ones were the ones last to get mentioned, or the least amount of interest by people making suggestions.

Post by DarkAxel » Fri Nov 01, 2013 8:59 pm

I do have some semi-serious questions:

It is obvious to me that a lot of the board styles listed at the phpbb web site were created by phpbb users (gamer clan board styles?) I know fuck-all about phpbb coding, but it seems to me that if some phpbb users are able to build stable board styles for the latest board software version than others can do it too. What, exactly, is preventing the forum admins from building a custom ZS board style? Is it a lack of experience with phpbb's latest version? A lack of volunteer hours to do the coding work? A lack of money to pay a pro to do it?

Don't get me wrong. I appreciate all of the hard work that goes into the forums, and I understand that ZS is a volunteer organization, but if the forum users alone can raise $10,000+ for a major disaster then we should be able to scrounge up the resources needed to build a custom ZS board style and keep it up-to-date with the latest version of the BBS software. I know I'd throw a few dollars toward that project.

Of course, I'm just a guest here, and all my green username means is that I have 15 bucks to throw towards the ZS cause a year, so feel free to say "Shut the fuck up, DarkAxel". I'm getting used to subsilver2. :crazy: :wink:

Creating a style for phpbb isn't all that difficult. Keeping it current and functional as phpbb updates and evolves, that's where it gets difficult. Keeping it current and functional as phpbb updates and evolves, and as modules are added, removed, tested, improved and updated, that's pretty much a full-time job. I know, because that's been my job on my own forums for just as long as this place has been around (mine turns 10 years old in 27 days). We don't have anywhere near the number of members, or the activity, that this place does, but the amount of work behind the scenes is about the same I'd say. And, like this place, we went with the stock styles and a couple of non-stock ones. Then we (I) got stupid, and started customizing stuff and ... seven years down the road we find we can't upgrade to phpbb3 without a few hundred hours of work getting all the customizations to work with the new stuff.

Customization has its place, and it does look nice and allow you to have exactly what you want, but it's labor intensive to maintain.

A very upgrade unfriendly process, then. Using standard styles simplifies the process. Gotcha.

ZS is still awesome.

We are adding 10 new styles. So I figured I'd give everyone ten votes, we'll pick the top ten, and I'll flip a coin to pick between ties, I guess, unless anyone else has a better idea.

Sounds good to me, and 10 new styles should give plenty of options for different tastes.

Those are first in the list because when we were asking people which boards we should include for a vote, they were the two most popular - asked to be included time and time again. For the average reader, the contrast is sufficient on those boards. If you are the type of person who requires a more extreme contrast, those are not the styles for you. Vote for some that provide a better contrast. I'm sure with ten styles added, there will be at least one that meets that need.

As long as some of those ten take advantage of a full width screen unlike the one at the top of the list.

I am surprised there are only 207 votes at this point.

I would think more people on ZS would want to get their say in on what display styles get chosen. With only 2 days left, hope more people come vote so they can feel included.

Don't forget, the default styles are staying, so if you're like me, and you're happy with just one of the defaults, no need to vote. This poll is just for choosing styles in addition to the defaults.
