Making the home text visual nice - your help and opinion needed

Postby Toby » Wed Jan 16, 2019 3:28 pm

I am a limited mind with just kite tricks in my head...I need the help from you creative minds to make the text on the home visual more appealing.

There are already some ideas, but I am sure you guys have more.

And of course your opinions as users of the site are more than welcome.

Currently the forum name is also smaller...should be the same size as the topic text? etc


Here is what we currently have.

User "evan" contributed this idea already:

I also want to change the base color of the most text on the site...since not everyone can read blue on white well, so I want to help those users as well.

Here some ideas from me:

two different greys for the forum names, black topic text

and here a version with a colored forum name...this way the user could quickly see in which forum the topic has been posted:

Have you tried brighter colored text on darker background, that’s usually nice and easy on the eyes!

how about what you have now except no italics for the forum?
Or the "opposite "of evan's idea - darker text for title of post, and lighter for forum (sorry evan ;) )

I like the one from GTC posted above. The reason is that you want everyone to be able to "scan and dive". Scanning is optimized if the words are justified left. I would probably go with the example from GTC but move the post line closer to the Topic so its even easier to scan. The color and font size in this works as well, just shift the forum topic a bit to the left as far as it will go.
