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.

Nice. I like the Dark style. The mustard one isn't that bad either

I have now added a "Dark" style for those who like the darker look without the Halloween colors. Be sure to wear your sunglasses at night!

I think the CJPC links are fine btw.

The HTTP links in a post are a light-ish grey when not highlighted and become a subtle darker grey when they are highlighted.
The NavBar links at the top of the page turn a nice silver with the text turning from white to black when highlighted.
And the links below the NavBar just get a nice subtle light grey box around them when highlighted.

Sounds like a plan... let me know of any hexcode adjustments to it and I will make them as needed.

Not bad - much better than I expected. The first two colours are IMO perfect - the third one might need a bit dimm down - I'll play with it a little when I get home ...

Thanks boss for adding the Greeny

Goes well with my avatar's heir

I think it looks great, it doesn't collide with those green rectangles which indicate the reputation at all.

OK, I have added Greeny so you can check it out live and then we can make some hexcode tweaks accordingly, and +Rep GrandpaHomer.

From top to bottom:
#008040 (They're incorrectly other way around in pic - was to late to change the order - darker one in the middle indeed)
#80FF40 (although this one would probably collide a bit with the green dots bellow user names I'm afraid ... need to see this in action first)

Can you elaborate on the CJPC link colors, perhaps we can update them

At the moment in the CJPC style I see the normal links as #5F5F5F and when you hover/mouseover them they change to #404040 in color.

Checked out all the themes, and CJPC's IMO is the best in terms of matching/blend with the site. Only thing I would change with this theme is the link colors (which right now there is none).
