Seems like you've already done it :lol:

Any way - for the stickys do you mean like this (see attachments)?

[Edit: you know, I'm a little upset that no one has commented on the fact that the logo in the top left lines up with the background - so much effort :cry: :lol: ]

Yes - thoses stickies look nicer.
Also - could you 'round out' the ! announcements?
Well done on lining up the landscape inside and outside the TT-Forums.net logo.

If you quote a quote, you can't see who wrote the quoted quote because the textcolor and background color are both set to black :o

Actually, I was the first to note that.
But thanks for caring.
I now have an idea about what to do about this (because I kinda like the black background - don't know about you), but it will take a bit of time.

Nice detail in the placing of the logo, Dominion! And I like the yellow sticky-button best!

how about making the one who is being quoted's name white, as that works on grey and black (u can read, u just have to highlight it). Well done on the img, no one noticed it because it didnt look wrong, (its the same as a light technician, when its gd noone notices, but if u mess up everyone notices.) is it just me or is the square just to the right of the truck slightly darker then the square next to it outside the box? (im not sure wheather it is lined up or not, the closer i look it apperas to be off by 5mm, but its probably me)

I hope you meant 0.5mm there...
It's close enough anyway.

I've already done that and the files are winging their way to Owen. ;)

Also updated are the scrollbar colours, the sticky icons, and some other general things like the border of the helpline in new post.

A while ago, someone suggested using a TT terrain as the background for quotes... I was thinking about it because the black colour doesn't look "TT-like", however I am not sure if a TT terrain with text on it would look good... What about making TT Water as that background?

I really like it - I think my avatar goes better with it now!. I agree that balck on yellow looks good on its own as I have used that myself. However, within the grader scheme, I think that the light blue colour on black would fit better.

I think that you should make the quotes look like the box you put your name in in the beggining. You know, this box. Instead of "Managers Name" put "Somebody said". The in the black area put the qoute.
