Feedback & Future Issues
Thank you all for taking the time to let us know what you think of the new look!
So far as we can tell, most of you like the redesigned template.
The 2 main reservations we have had so far involve:
- The red blog header which some have considered too glaring/loud
- The flash animations is too... animated.
Black font on a white background is recognized as the most legible combination, which left the margins and header for the colors of the Lebanese flag; red and green.
The lime green color of the "Son of Moto" template (on which the new template is based) and which is ubiquitously found in many blogs was replaced with a darker shade. The shade of red however was more problematic as this or this would not register as being "Lebanese".
As for the Flash animation, these are either universally loved or hated. And in our case, some felt the animation is distracting, while others were more specific (the cedar fluttered too much). We tried to make it as unobtrusive as possible, and in my opinion, a small fluttering cedar atop a large blog as this does not distract the reader.
Still, this redesign is a work in progress. It will continue to be tweaked and changed, as much as our time allows. All in all I think we've made a substantial shift forward from what it used to be.
Our next task will be to address the content of this blog:
What is our mission?
What do you come to LBF to read?
What would you like to see more/less of?
This blog belongs to all the bloggers of Lebanon.
