I am One, which is also an anagram for Neo or many other different three letter combinations. I'm actually called Matt Theobald, I'm almost 18 and I study at Plymouth College of Art doing Digital Graphics and Interactive Media. I was doing Graphic Design and Illustration but decided to move on to more technological studies as that is where I work my best and definitely hardest. I'm the creator of the original design that you see on the home of this website and I'm sure you will see more of my work in the general area when i start posting up my designs and things like that. I'm not an interesting guy to be honest, I have a dysfunctional set of families like most, i like gaming and design and computers and gadgets and swearing. I was on The Scape, so if you know me then hello and if you didn't then...hello!

Unfortunately parchments can be a real pain to tile correctly. It's also notoriously difficult to get a dropshadown with just CSS that works cross-browser. We're trying to support IE7+, Safari, Chrome, Firefox, and Opera. And right now that's working so....

Anyway, I've made that blue sidebar background extend to the bottom of the page through CSS trickery. I'll see what I can do with the news...

anthony: The scroll looks ok (maybe it should be wider like the picture) but what I really like in the picture is the news title (you could do it without the drop shadow for now) and the posted by line with the red name showing an admin, it would be nice to have the comments line styled like the posted by line too. Also to go along with making the scroll wider maybe you should float the text over more like in the picture and it would be nice for the links to fade in to maybe do so a little faster. Maybe a little more space between the separator line too. I does really looks good though and everything seams to be coming together.

OK, I've changed the style of the posted by line so that links are red-ish (it's impossible with the data ben gives me to determine their user group, so all are red), the comments line now has a nearly-identical style to the posted-by line. The posted-by line's color is now more grey, just like the image. I changed the news title to white and added a drop shadow in firefox 3+, chrome, safari. I "sort-of" added a glow in IE6+ by "hacking" a glow to be grey (it looks passable, but not great, I may remove it). I also added 4 additional pixels of margin to the bottom of news posts to space them more.

Haven't done any changes to the scroll yet since I'd have to edit graphics to make the scroll wider, and don't want to commit to that yet. Haven't done anything to the menu yet because I don't feel like screwing with javascript tonight :)

Anything else let me know and I'll take a look :)


EDIT: I hated the way the glow looked, I switched it to a drop shadow. I'm still fairly unhappy, but much happier than the glow, I'm still looking for a better solution :)

OK, for the menu I fixed it so that when you're over the submenu it stays highlighted. I also cut the animation time in half to speed it up.
