Topic: Forum chaos and invasion of dark colors

Colors: Goal is to align with Friendlyskies theme and let artwork stand on its own a bit more.

Forum changes: Goal is to make the forum more inclusive for people doing all kinds of creative art projects. Examples would be GIMP / Photoshop users, Nodebox / Processing users, etc. Heck, even POVRay or Blender or WidgetWare 6D users are welcome.

I still want this to be an effective Art of Illusion support forum, but I think our community has the potential to grow & benefit more as we share works that aren't just limited to Art of Illusion.

Thus the "Community for Creatives" slogan.

I'm also thinking of adding a way for software developers to share their non-AoI software works. For example, Francois created a neat 3D modeler for the Mac. Things like that.

Good luck with this. Like it so far.

Looks nice.

One thing: could you add an sRGB profile to the banner image? I now have a wide-gamut display, and the colours are way too saturated. This is a Mac-only problem on such monitors, so not many are affected by it, but all the same. (And the AoI version text on the image is gone?)

Sure, I'll check it out. I could swear it already had an sRGB profile...

Re: Forum chaos and invasion of dark colors

I like the changes, even though I am mainly AoI now, I may throw in some stuff from other programs once in a while.

May it be an evening star
Shines down upon you
May it be when darkness falls
Your heart will be true

Re: Forum chaos and invasion of dark colors

This is good. I like it. Not only the style, but the way the forum is reorganizated. And the idea of publishing other kind of works. Just a question: those works could be not related to aoi at all? Then I should upload some drawings i'm doing.
