someone PLEASE get rid of that blue up there

It's abrasive.  Ugly.  Hard on the eyes.  Discordant with the bluebird blue of the sky featured in the ads all around it.  Did I say ugly?

Isn't there a way to change your skins and views via the personal account settings?  There used to be right?

 

Well there is the choice between classic and purple I guess..

The color just needs a slight dab of gray to make it look better with the vestiges of the old color scheme still showing.

Go to your profile page and edit your preferences. 

There is an option to change your skin under visual, near the bottom.  Try that and see if it helps.

Get used to it.  That's OnTheSnow's color and they own EpicSki.

The blue that is in the blue bar toward the bottom above "Recent Discussions," etc. that shows number of active users would be perfecto!

 

I like my blues like I like my steaks.....Medium.

Nope, that doesn't get rid of that awful blue.  I assume that this is the logo color of onthesnow.   But in this context it can be changed if they so choose.  Guess they don't so choose.  Still ugly.

This is not the first time we've had the discussion about how we like or don't like the color scheme on EpicSki. 

 

FWIW 

When this change was set up, I looked at the colors and thought, "Wow, that looks a lot like our old version of Epicski.  I like it"

 

 

Also, notice that EpicSki has been added to the OnTheSnow menu bar.  Pretty cool to see other sites under the MNC umbrella work together.

Well, at least on the mobile version it would be nice if the colors harmonized with the new colors. The more subdued old colors look dirty combined with the new colors. I prefer the old blues that you see on the buttons and the fonts, but if we're going neon, then let's get them on the same palette.

Personally I don't think the color is bad, although I spend almost no time on this site at the top of the page.

I like it.  Mods can post a poll if changing it is even an option, otherwise you get what you pay for..

I'm not sure that you and I are seeing the same thing, or maybe it just doesn't bother me.  I'll check to see if the mobile version is being sorted out.  I know you asked about it earlier.

I think it  looks better with the purple version rather than the default. Fewer blues to clash with.

Near as I can tell, that has no impact on the mobile version.

post #17 of 23

Sibhusky, I'm not seeing the same thing in my mobile version.  I'm not sure if its in the settings or the IOS version I'm using. 

Its worth trying to figure out, for sure.

 

 This is what I see on that same post. 

 

The only time I see the blue bar on my iPhone is when I go to the top post.

Well, I'm on a tablet, so the amount of post showing on the screen is greater.

Now I've never been quick enough to capture a screen shot when I add a new post, but you get an olive green bar overlaying that aqua.

Edit.. And I wasn't quick enough then, either..
post #19 of 23

I usually get the olive green bar while its loading as well.  I know what you're talking about. 

I may sneak Phil's iPad for a bit today and play with the mobile version to see what happens. 

post #20 of 23
I just switched views to my iPad , as soon as I scroll the blue gets hidden. For me the blue is not bad and I actually like it better than the out gonna color, but that's me.
post #21 of 23
So, because you can't see it after you scroll, it's okay that old and new don't harmonize? Typical male.
