I'm creating this so that we have one central thread where we can discuss
all aesthetics related matters.
Ever since we moved to the new graphical layout, there has been a few things
that have bothered me. First of all, all the "information boxes" in the user
guide are now barely visible. The old layout had much better CSS for this -
the problem however is, that it wasn't fully compatible with Internet
Explorer. The new system is. This point isn't really that important though -
the current way isn't that bad either - and arguably compatibility is the
one to choose in a situation like this.
Now the problem that annoys me, is the background color. While the brushed
metal background looks good in a window manager, it is somewhat unintuitive
to me at least. For example the brighter orange-flavored background color on
rasters site looks a lot nicer to the eyes if you ask me.
Am I the only one who thinks we should at least try out a few other
background colors? Opinions, comments?
Otherwise I see the current layout very positively, and it's nice to have a
somewhat common look across all the Enlightenment sites.
