Yeah we ran out of bees. :) Can we get rainbow bees, though? That's the real question.

Dave & I did this late last night so we didn't really get around to making more and just left you & us as our original colours. The purple kitties look horrible with this new scheme...

Green bees are done. I'll upload them later.

Do you really want rainbow bees?

Nah, but we do need some other colour... it'd be nice if the admin/mod bees stood out in some way though to make it more clear to new users who they can ask for help, etc.

Boss, floop mentioned the font colour in the other thread, to my eye the only place it looks really odd is in the usernames next to the bees, the blue font and the red bees look proper weird next to each other. They really clash.

I'm not sure if I should keep posting here or the other thread, someone mentioned orange/purple font and ......

I think orange would also clash with the red bees a lot (unless they change) and be too coloured for those who are checking from work.

The browns are pretty well defined on my screen, although I'd have had the regular font dark and the clicked font light. But thats me.

I think the only bee that really clashed was the red one, which I think actually looks out of place from the rest of them anyway, how about a purple bee? If you mods aren't going beewards

[edit] overuse of the word 'actually'

I don't really like the look of purple with brown. My kitties are driving me mad. Take a look at the "Go!" on the Members' Page, too. Ugh! We could probably move forum discussion to the other thread and leave this one for the main site and remaining work. Incidentally, I found the little flower icons you made, Damien, completely forgot about them.

So, does someone want to do a mockup of what the song db portal might look like? Or list what we have/what's missing for the main site? It'd be nice to get the complete rollover done this week so I can cross that off my list of "stuff to do before I leave for Europe" and move on to other things.

Dayna, I can't do EVERYthing! I'd love to program that but I've got three weeks before I go and a tonne of stuff to do that's not related to FB as well as the rest of this site. I really hope someone volunteers to code that, though, it'd be nice to see.

Damien, green looks good, do you have one more colour in you for Dave & I?

Thank-you sir. Could we lighten up the blue ones a bit (so they're more like the powder blue of the folders) and maybe the red a little too (though it could be hard since that one is essentially a lightish red/pink).

Check out the splash too, you did a great job on it. We couldn't use Clarendon because it's unlikely that many people have it and it looked bad as courier, but Georgia seems to work alright.

Also, thanks for the mockup, Daisy. I suspect that Dave & I will get to the whole site later this week. I've been pushing the poor bugger hard. :)

The red begins to look very close to the orange when I lighten it.

On the splash there seems to be a bit of a gap at the bottom of the image. Does it need the black border too?

OK, I thought that might be a problem. Not sure what you mean about the splash, though...

He also mentioned this folder image needs to be updated:

I just checked internet explorer and there is no gap there. It must just be safari.

Thanks for all your hard work guys!!!

Wow Dean and Dave, you guys are going gang busters!

Active duck those bees are so cool. I love how you got the mods' to blink!!

I was looking again at the spalsh. I am thinking maybe just leaving the background plain make it pop more. I am wondering if that would help keep the focal point on just frank and the logo. Just a thought.

I am sorry for being such a pain after all the work you guys have put into it.
