I do not like fancy stuff.
I like it like that.

I agree with dynek

It's clean, simple and fast

Re: how about we spice up these forums a bit?

I agree, a logo would be nice.

Re: how about we spice up these forums a bit?

I like it as it is, simple and clean. Wanna see how forums shouldn't be done? Look here bsdforums.org

... and then they said "I bet you can't make MINIX kernel panic!!!" And that's when I got mad

Hmmm it looks good now but a logo would be nice too, unless its a crappy logo

For example, Linux had at least two completely independent USB stacks before Linus Torvalds rejected them both and wrote a third one from scratch, after he found both existent Linux  stacks unsatisfactory.  (When pressed for an explanation as to why he selected the API he did, Torvalds stated: "because I wanted to."

kernelpanicked: I agree, the new bsdforums layout is really ugly.  however, I'd still just like a simple logo on here.

scuzzo: that sounds about right smile.

Re: how about we spice up these forums a bit?

You can create a logo and see if we all like it enough to place it here on the forums.
It should be a clean design that goes well with the differrent themes, at least with the default theme.

So, shut up and deliver some logo candidates.

The only problem I see with the new layout is that you have to scroll too far down the screen to get to the meat of the site.  It also has way to many forum topics, but it is pretty inclusive.

Anyway, a logo would be cool, but I like simple as well.

Re: how about we spice up these forums a bit?

Just a lil version of the bsd nexus logo

Example

White background
Not so white background for the default theme

could be much cooler, but its small and simple

Re: how about we spice up these forums a bit?

or we could even just put the favicon.ico graphic next to where it says "BSDnexus Forums".

Re: how about we spice up these forums a bit?

How about replacing the "BSDnexus" in "BSDnexus Forums" with the logo?

Re: how about we spice up these forums a bit?

Simplicity is everything big_smile

Re: how about we spice up these forums a bit?

oh please, your userename is "Nothing"!  tongue

Re: how about we spice up these forums a bit?

Re: how about we spice up these forums a bit?

Re: how about we spice up these forums a bit?

although a logo would be nice, people might get the wrong idea and come here and start asking questions like...

"i imagine that u know all of the problem that can freebsd do. explain me step bye step"

  *NOTE: this is a actual question I recieved as a private message on the bad forum.

Re: how about we spice up these forums a bit?

I wrote back and asked him what he was trying to do, but he never responded.
