A very quick (unexpected!) change to the look of the site... what do you think?

Hi Folks

Well, that was unexpected! We're currently looking into what happened, but we just had a very quick change to the look of the site!

For those who glimpsed the previous khaki and purple version (?!) hopefully this is a decent substitute while we establish what happened to the original template (hackers or Ning changes?).

In the meantime, I suppose this is as good a time as any to let us know what you think!

Bit bland now lol.

Yes needs someone with artistic skills to design a really nice header! :) Is the main font okay for people? I can make it a little darker if needed.

ok as is. possible, from the survey, the 'dashboard' may need reorganising rather than just the colours?????

AGREED a nice header would be good! 

I actually like it's simplicity. 

For the first time, my browser (Safari for Mac) is actually rendering a nice plain easy-to-read type face. Whatever this type-face is, stick with it! I would prefer it in real black, the grey (especially when we get a coloured background) won't show up as well. Some of us are no longer young ;-) and need a clear view to read easily.

could that super white background be turned a little less bright, or can the font be turned a little more black ? im kind of squinting to read on here now. heehee. 

Sorry NO i prefered the old version, the 'dayglo' blue is not to my liking it is too bright, prefered the gardening colours.

Sorry all I don't know what is going on - it is changing to the khaki /purple theme seemingly by itself. Will get on to Ning support :/

what blue ? lol something going on here.... i dont see no blue nothing ? - mmmm im using google chrome ? if that helps ?


Jane is referring to the Khaki / neon blue version - it reappeared again this afternoon and I changed it back to this again. Am waiting to hear back from Ning support about what is going on. Julian (my techie hubby) suspects it is a glitch as they begin transferring the networks across to the new version of Ning. We'll see soon I hope. Sorry for the incovenience in the meantime :/
