Home PS4 News - Latest PlayStation 4 and PS3 News

October 13, 2011 // 12:20 am - This is just a quick PSA that we have now completed work integrating the PS3 News Quick Style Chooser into our Forums, Portal and 17 Subdomains hosted here which allows you to change the colors based on your preferences while browsing the site each day.

It can be found in the bottom left corner of each page here, and we will continue adding Styles to it frequently.

If anyone wishes to take a screenshot like HeyManHRU did HERE and fill in the colors you'd like to see we will do our best to add a Style under your UserName to pick from as time permits!

Finally, we are still offering $100 US for a new Site Logo... so far we have had a lot of GREAT design ideas in the ongoing thread with the criteria outlined below:

  • The logo should look decent with a transparent background, or able to be made that way upon being selected (most are).
  • The logo design should be unique so that when seen the first thing that comes to a viewer's mind is our site, not "Sony" or "PlayStation 3" so try to avoid using pics of the PS3 itself or accessories, font etc.
  • We prefer round, curvy fonts such as those attached HERE over square/boxy looking ones for the "PS3 News" name in the logo.
  • The logo should match the default site/forum colorscheme (white, black, grey, silver and our blue shades) to naturally blend/fit in.
  • The logo should be visually appealing/friendly horizontally at 150x90, vertically at 46x180 and as our default Forum avatar at 50x50. This is the biggest issue as the same exact logo likely won't work in all three placements just by rotating/resizing it so we need a basic logo design that is versatile enough to work for them all.
  • Post any design ideas / submissions in the ongoing PS3 News Logo thread HERE.

Found another one... the hotkey for posting a quick reply (ALT+S) doesn't work for me. Dono if it is only my lapie or if some one else has this proplem too. When i try to use the hotkey it only marks my address bar in the web browser. I'm using FF if it helps to clarify.

I had a little freetime tonight so I modified them... they aren't perfect as I don't want them adversely affecting the other Styles but they are visible now in the Dark and Halloween styles.

I'm now using the dark style for a few days and i noticed that if you want to give reputation and want to enter a text into the ldl it change to black and you can't read what you write. If someone else already have discovered it please don't hit me for posting again.

Thanks, and ya... if it was like that on all the Styles I would probably force myself to do it but since it's only a few it will be one of those "rainy day" projects that will get done eventually but probably not in the near future.

Ah no probs then, it's barely negligible like the quote issue so I wouldn't bother trying to fix it - it'll be more hassle than it's worth!

Loving all the new changes though

If you hover on them you can see it but I was aware of this... Thanks though saviour07 for letting me know and +Rep!

The issue is, fixing them would mean making new buttons (ie: for the styles since the default ones contain lettering of the same color.

Perhaps down the road we can look into it along with the quote arrow graphic fix mentioned also, but I really dislike graphics work so I'm not sure how soon it will be hehe.

I've attached a screeny showing the Quick Reply window when Bold, Italic and Underline aren't highlighted and when they are to show you what I mean...

Yup ... agreed ... the dark style looks excellent. It gives the site that underground feeling ... I bet $ony gets scared when they see this! hehehe

... and the silver looks nice too - very soft on the eyes ...
