I'm game to do such a thing if it's The Will Of The People, so I'll sit down over the weekend (on a day when I'm not braindead) and get this set up.

Thanks again for even just the consideration. If there's anything I should do do tell.

What would be a good title at the top in the banner? Since i'm off for the week and will whip up a stylesheet. Just "fortuna forums?" "Fortuna?" something else?

Also what's the name of that font you use

There is now a thing!

Eagle Time >> Cool Shit You Can Do >> Projects! >> Mediawarks

It exists.

(Also, wheat, the font is Schaz Does Words In Pixels. It's proprietary, we had to lease it from Microsoft for BIG MONEY.)

Yeah, the font was made from scratch because literally every technological solution I can propose is a hackjob workaround lmao

Oh I meant what's the font gime uses, but I found out that's Poriet One by clicking on things haphazardly until I found it

but that is also good to know!

Also thank's for "making it hapeen"

I challenge you to make it real using fontstruct or similar

I have to say one thing: the licensing on FontStruct is prohibitive in the extreme. If I had made this font using it, which I will neither confirm nor deny, I wouldn't have been able to share the font without its respective license or through the website itself. In addition, I wouldn't have been able to use the font for any commercial purposes (which is fair, I suppose), or for that matter any purpose other than "personal purposes" or "work". But of course, "work" is only allowed so far as that work is noncommercial. Basically all I would have been allowed to do with this font is to make my word documents look funny, or to print up things that are guaranteed not to make me any money.

On top of that, the license actually forbids the use of the font as a webfont - so if we were to actually use this hypothetical FontStruct font on the forums, we would be up against the license agreement and would be compelled to destroy the (again, very hypothetical) font and any copies of it.

It sure is a good thing that here is another font I made in a completely unaffiliated way that happens to be what we need and has nothing to do with that license agreement at all!

Okay schaz here's the banner I knocked out. Actually, there's two versions; one is plainer than the other. They both would work the nearly the same since the style sheet I made has a black background.

It is done! Mediawarks should now override people's themes to "Four Tuna"(name changeable on request) when they venture on in.

The buttons at the top of the page (and the New Topic button on the right) still being black-on-white is kind of butts, but the only workaround I can think of is changing the base images so the white is transparent, which then makes them nigh-unreadable against a dark background.

There's an option in the Admin Control Panel to change the Image Directory from whence the theme pulls its graphics, maybe I can get it to yank a different set of (recolored) images for the banner buttons? I'd have to ask Pines about that

(Also you've got two images in there of little computer screen-head fellows, where/when are they supposed to pop up? Would you like me to upload those to the site as well?)

the one pops up at the notification when you have a private message, the other pops up as the error message when you try making a post but there's something wrong with it (for instance, if you try hitting post without typing anything in)

That'd be great, thanks for everything!

Did you just use Futura for Fortuna

I think Futura is in the font family being used in fortuna, or at least with some web stuff

it looks close to poiret one and century gothic

Not sure if this is the place for mentioning it but does anyone find reading the blue on black font in the Four Tuna stylesheet somewhat uncomfortable? It's not impossible or anything but with larger chunks of text my eyes start getting tired pretty quickly.

That might just be me though?

I don't see a problem with blue text on black background. Then again, I do have stuff modified so that blue on black is the default color scheme on Youtube, Wikipedia, Google, Tumblr, etc...

should I switch the whites with blues, so that the text is white and the links/headings are blue?

I think that might help? Part of the problem for me is that Futura is a lot thinner than the usual font n'the color scheme makes it worse.

It might also just be that Futura isn't an incredible font for forums but we can face that bridge if the changing the colors doesn't prove helpful.

(Are you fine with the Futura font as well Kieros?)

Also I'd like more than three people's thoughts on this before saying there's any real mandate for change.

EBWOP: Having glanced on my phonething it feels particularly difficult to digest on smaller resolutions.

I'd also like to propose that 'unread topic' styling be a little more different, it's hard to tell the difference in the Fortuna style.

It's tolerable on a larger screen for me but definitely a strain on smaller screens. The "link white" would definitely make for a better main text color imo, or maybe a very pale blue to compromise?

I don't know how to make it so a theme grabs a different set of images for the top bar of buttons, things like post icons, etc. I agree though it's impossible to differentiate unread posts from read posts when the background is darker. if anyone knows their way around myBB then I'd let them tackle the problem, otherwise I can't help beyond pestering Pines about it next time I see him.
