Topic: Thanks, Steve... and 3 suggestions
Message: Posted by: Steve Martin (Feb 6, 2004 02:25PM)

This is just a great forum. Many thanks for taking the time and trouble to set up and maintain this site. It works great and is great fun. Well done!

Three suggestions, submitted humbly and respectfully:

1. Please make the text size in posts default to 9 point Verdana. (The text is currently 11 or 12 point). 9 point is similar to what you see on the posts on this site when you set your browser's "text size" setting (in the "View") menu to "Smaller". 9 point Verdana text looks a lot neater, is easier to read, and takes up less vertical space - so you can read more in one screen-full.

2. Please change the colour scheme away from green! Yes - I know that colour is completely personal and subjective, but I think that the overall blend of colours on the site can be made less brash and more subtle and mysterious - more inviting.

3. Please overhaul the layout of the tables and graphic elements on the site, to make them with a higher level of crispness/sharpness. Again, this is subjective. But here in the UK right now (as I'm sure you know) the phrase "sexed up" has become quite notorious. I think that the look and feel of the Magic Café could be sexed up considerably... :)

However, none of these are crucial... I will still visit in any case!

Thanks again,

I'm glad you enjoy my little site and I sincerely hope it helps you in your various magical ventures! :nod:
Regarding the text size, YOU can change that yourself in the preferences area (Upper right of your Café screen).
Concerning the graphics and color scheme, that will remain the same. You might say the [i]LOOK[/i] and feel of the Café has become our little calling card as it were.

That said, I want to thank you for taking the time to make the suggestions and for your continued support of [b]The Magic Café[/b]. :)
