They have both really lightweight + small text on grey (poor contrast), and excessive contrast (100% white on some kind of black hole plum purple), making it hard to read in some places and blocky in others - both hard on the eyes.

Very light or very dark shades of tones like purple, wreak havoc with monitors because they never look like a particular colour (screen tints, brightness/contrast colours, relative colour perception etc). What you end up is a mishmash of colours like orange, pink, purple, indigo, navy etc.

Is it just me or have they started adding tints everywhere. Just stick with grey and one purple (like we have one red). Grey isn't a colour so when I say grey what I really mean is greyscale.

They're going to end up with something like this otherwise.

Easy mistake mixing up branding with accents. Branding doesn't = make every upper hierarchy piece of information and icon that colour. The most effective brands use brand colours as accents, or a background (only in print media like labels, large inverted areas of text/colour etc), not as a way to brandish every object. Things like buttons, link text, and other small, incidental things. It really looks clumsy when you block out massive areas in any particular colour for no apparent significance. If you're going to go down that route - just make the whole design in colour and go nuts. But that's a really poor idea for a text-based, non-marketing/product type of website.

Edit: Just checked out of curiosity and it does actually fail most W3C visibility tests. Fwiw we pass about 90% of them.

I'm usually on the defensive side of debates because it makes people question their actions. And me and the other party usually learn from it.
Like, for example I'm pretty far left, but I call bullshit on the stuff Green Party/Green Peace etc publicise when I see it.
Or like I've already said, if one of my hippy friends posts some stupid "Conservatives are banana splits" image, I'll call them out on it.

If you question people's slagging off of someone else they might change their behaviour in the future into something more positive/productive.
And I also just think it's nicer to have a more positive atmosphere. It doesn't come from a place of contempt :)

Good to know. I commend you for your efforts, myself I just can't be bothered engaging with stuff like that on Facebook for example. It's like arguing with my mother who is going deaf as well as forgetting what she just said.

So is old GAF still a thing? Or has the entire community moved to this new Resetera?

I haven't bothered visiting/posting there since all the drama started, what's the latest?

Not that I care of course, GRcade wifey4lifey :wub: :shifty:

It's still there but it moves at a much slower pace. (I only visit via the unofficial app.) Which in a funny way can be seen as a positive. Y'know, if you ignore the whys and wherefores. :lol:

It's moving at a snail's pace compared to what it was like pre-rapey Evilore. Ad revenue must be waaaaay down.

Just had a look and yeah GAF sure does seem a lot quieter. I don't need another slow forum, that's why GRcade exists!

I've registered with Resetera, wonder how long it'll take me to get my account confirmed.

What email did you use? They don't allow stuff like gmail, hotmail etc. for open registration.

Why don't they permit Gmail? What's wrong with it?

Jupiter is in your sun sign this week, making it pretty crowded in there, what with Jupiter being the largest of the planets and all.

Far too easy for people to sign up for alt accounts with free emails like that.

It's very easy to set up a throwaway Gmail account. It's less easy to set up a throwaway work account (and if you were a huge dickhead they could contact your employer).

A former admin on another forum I post on actually did this to someone and they ended up getting fired.

A GAF mod must've eventually noticed my posts talking about rersetera in the 40K community thread, I got permabanned for 'derailing and advertising' - harsh :lol:

Looks like they didn't remove my sabotaging of the OP though, teehee: http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=666385

A user on ResetEra has received a warning for 'port begging.' A bit heavy handed if you ask me that you could end up getting banned for it! I would say it's a reasonable part of gamer discourse to admire a game and express that you want to play it.
