 Post subject: 25th Anniversary Design
PostPosted: Thu Dec 20, '12, 11:51 am 
Today, December 20, 2012, marks the 25th anniversary of the original release of the first Phantasy Star game. As part of the Fringes celebration of this important date, a new design for the site has launched this morning!

Like our old layout, this new design comes in two flavors: one red and one blue. The blue version is the new site default, but the red version is available for those who prefer that to the blue. The new blue design will appear by default for logged out users; logged in members can select it from the User Control Panel's Board Preferences page. The two new designs are labeled as 25thBlue and 25thRed. Other color schemes may be added later. I have a couple of ideas in that area, but didn't have time to fully prepare them for this launch.

The old designs are still available, but my current plan is to phase them out in the future. BlueStars and RedStars will eventually be retired in favor of the new look, while RetroDark might be converted to the new design as an alternate color scheme.

As this design is a very new thing that is just launching, there is a chance that some bugs or issues may appear. If you notice any problems with the new layout or color schemes, please let me know and I'll look into fixing them. The Downloads section is currently forced to use the old BlueStars layout, regardless of user preference settings, pending a future software replacement.

Thanks for visiting Fringes of Algo!

Thank you so much for the gift, Thoul ! And thank you for all the work done here through all those years !
And last but not least, and again : Happy 25th Anniversary, PHANTASY STAR !! :party:
I've just changed the font in 25th blue and that's great !
I've tried too the retroblack and that reminds :me a lot of souvenirs ! When I was visiting this (fantastic) site without being a full member ! (that was so many years ago...)

The new Board designs IS terrific ! I've adopted it ! Even if it's a bit sad to abandon the "old one" : with the 25th anniversary, that's something that must be celebrated !

After two days of use of this new 25th anniversary design, I've totally adopted it ! The blue one is great and the changes in the general presentation of the site is great too !
Thanks a lot again for it, Master Thoul :) :up:

All I gotta say so far is Wow Thoul. I ended up cleaning up my computer so I had to relog into Fringes and was greeted with this eye candy. It looks awesome so far and very modern if I might say so. Also the User Control Panel is much easier to navigate.

yes, the control user panel is far more efficien t now.
It's now easy to navigate into all the different menus ! So thanks again :) :up:
