    I don't care for the BF logo at the top, to me it seems really plan. Other than that I like it, the changes mentioned can be done to improve on it, but just the logo is my only downside after that.

    FlashFLores, thanks for giving it a go. The designer checked out the thread and has noted all of the suggestions.

    I should have an update for you guys sometime tomorrow.

    I agree. I'll probably get a graphic/logo designer to recreate the logo, as the guy I hired is more of a web designer.

    Thanks for the suggestions :)

    Looks professional and very SC. Getting rid of the blue bar is a very good idea, but the skin needs a little more color. Overall it's too dark. And the BF logo is lost in the darkness.

    If designs could talk, the blue bar is screaming "in your face!" That's probably why we're all asking to lose it. Obviously the BF logo needs a redesign if you're looking to improve and re-market the image of the forum. Don't like the robots either. Overall it looks good (and better with FFlore's bar), but I'm concerned about looking too similar to other Blizzard/StarCraft based forums and/or websites when it comes to the design that we'll be looking at on our screens each time we come here.

    But yes, looks rather nice, except for the blue bar.

    It looks too Battle.nety and not enough Blizzardy.

    Kill the blue bar, and maybe more color?

    If you get a decent BF logo, consider replacing the "S" on the menus with a miniature version of it.

    the "BF" logos could be a bit clearer and the main logo up top still seems generic

    I happen to like the BF icon. The B is slightly abstract, but not to the point where I would consider it unreadable. I don't want it too generic. Let's see if others feel the same.

    Yes, the logo up top does seem a bit generic. That will be replaced.

    Change the green tint to a blueish tint and we're in business.
