    Green Lady Gets a Touch Up!

    We are excited to announce that WritingForums.com has a brand new site design that is now available as WF 2.0 in the style chooser at the bottom left corner of the site. This will soon become the default but until then, feel free to give it a test drive by choosing it as shown below.

    Our main goal in refreshing the site was really just to spiff things up a bit but not so much as to lose the essence of "The Green Lady." The logo graphic was retained but updated a bit, and on the site itself, we tweaked a few colors and added a social media bar at the top of the page for a more modern feel.

    We hope you like the new site, but never fear. If you don't, you'll still be able to choose the old version (vB4 Default Style) if you prefer it.

    There are so many pages at WF, that there are bound to be some oddities in the new color scheme. If you see anything out of the ordinary, please PM me so we can fix it.

    Thanks!

    This is exciting! Hmm ... did Mustard give you the yellow color choice? I guess there's always room to embrace change. Thanks! I saw the quote area change so I knew something was different. I'm looking forward to this new vibe. I hope it encourages more new members to stay and feel comfortable.

    Oh wow, I'm sorry to say this but... it's not very nice change. Three colors on a single page, and they don't blend at all, if you wanted something new you could've put more shades of a same color, making the transition more smoother... Back to the default style...

    I think that once we change to the new style (TK or Sam may know the answer to this for sure) you can still revert to the present default style if you're not comfortable with the future one.

    Well I surely won't use 2.0, sorry...

    I'm with Schrody ... not a fan of this palette. The yellow in the highlight tab and the orange in the "Reply to..." button look out of place.

    I like the shape of it though. colourlovers.com has tons of palettes .... just a thought.

    I'm quite fond of the new one. It retains the qualities that make WF the Green Lady, but also spruces the place up nicely.

    There should be a way to keep the old version as WF 1.0, or something similar, if anyone should wish to do so. I don't see why there couldn't.

    Just a heads up! If you do choose to change your setting on one platform (PC, tablet, phone), you will have to make the change on the other platform as well. Different browser, different settings. So, if you change it, don't question why it hasn't changed on other platforms. Follow the same guidelines to all other platforms. That is all.

    I think they were shooting for an earthy palette. I like avocados, but the yellow is throwing me off.
