I'm about to redo my site. How does this look for the new background? http://arcentral.net/userfiles/linkmaster/newbg.htm
I suck at making graphics. It's the best I could do. Using the cloud filter is the closest I can get to what I had in mind, thought it's still not what I was going for...

Anyway, what do you two think of it?

Note: It'll only be visible on the left and right sides of the page.

IMO, colors are a bit strong for being meant as a background. (even if it's just on the sides, should be muted considerably next to the site's main content)

Eh, probably. Center of the page is going to be mostly black and white though. Maybe just make it a little lighter?

Oh, the binary actually spells something btw. :P

Edit: How about now? http://arcentral.net/userfiles/linkmaster/newbg2.htm

What do you guys think so far? Does it look alright? I mean as far as simplistic crap goes, is it good?

Edit: Oh, I've noticed something odd about my site recently. If the link says restricted access or whatever, just go to the url bar and hit enter/click go and it'll work from that point on when linked from this site. I think I need to modify my .htaccess. =/

Also, using the darker image at the top like that is something I just thought of.

The header text looks out of place as far as colors go. Otherwise it looks good.

Totally using it from now on. ^_^

Looks alright.

Hover color on the links is too bright for a white bg.

Try a whiteish drop shadow on your banner image instead of the dark purple. That text just doesn't come off the bg enough. IMO

I'm a little surprised you could tell what color it is (it's actually indigo though, but close enough).
I was actually already planning on changing the color, but not to white, although now that you mention it, I'll give it a try and see how it looks. You're right though, it does blend with the background too much (as we talked about on WLM and as Yadao already pointed out :P).

I'm still playing with the link colors. Not only is it too bright when hovering, but it's too dark otherwise. I did change other colors though. I changed the drop shadow and border colors on the page from indigo to royal blue, and it looks a whole lot better now as far as those colors go. I've been using the same 3 colors to make everything—royal blue, sky blue and indigo—and I've been trying to stick to just those 3, but it looks like I'm going to have to broaden the spectrum.

Edit: You do like the new background at the top though, right?

Yep. Let's keep this convo in the threads though. PMs are a pain in the arse

Sure. I've moved all the PMs to this topic. :P

Anyway, I tried using a white drop shadow and it didn't work out at all. I then messed around with some other settings and found a 1 pixel outer bevel to work quite well. Here's the result: http://linkmaster.shockv2.com/testindex.htm

How's it look now?

wtf I didn't know you could move PMs into a thread. o.O

Anyway, I don't like it.. It makes the text look like it's slanted up and to the right..
Kind of hard to look at...

And why not just "Link Master" for the text? Everyone knows it's a website when they're there.. =P

You can't, I actually posted them all then changed the poster for you and Yadao. :P

Really? It doesn't look that way to me at all. o.O
I actually kinda like it the way it looks now, but I'll try other options before I settle on this.

Because Link Master would sound stupid as the name of a site. lol
Plus I'm used to calling it LMS.

http://linkmaster.shockv2.com/testindex.htm

Link color fixed, design is almost complete. Also, it no longer uses tables to align content within the page.
The only thing left that I'd like to do is have H1 show the background that's behind the white box behind it, instead of setting it's own background. Pretty sure it can't be done though, or at least I haven't found a way to. For it to work, you'd not only have to make H1's background transparent, but also have it make the background of it's parent element transparent as well, but only in the space behind the H1.

I'll probably just make a new image for it though, with the top slightly dark, similar to the top of the page.

New image made, and design more or less complete. What do you guys think of the finished product?
I agree that the header image still blends too much with the background, but it can be read, so I'm not too worried about it.

I'd create a little more contrast between the header image and the background. I dunno, maybe you could make one or the other darker, preferably the background if you go that route.

Thank you. :)

I'll probably try to work some more on the banner, but for now I'm going to start on the php for the contact page. That and play more OOT 3D. But which one first... :-k

Which way do you guys think looks better? Extra spacing between bottom of paragraph and top of heading, or normal spacing?

Extra: http://linkmaster.shockv2.com/testindex.htm
Normal: http://linkmaster.shockv2.com/testindex2.htm
