Hello everyone ..
« on: December 18, 2006, 09:23:21 pm »
Hi there!  I've been lurking and watching you all for some time, but I thought it was about time I came out of the shadows and showed myself.   ;D

I'm a big fan of horror, both on screen and on the page.  Favourite films would be things like the gothic horror of 1930s Holywood, Hammer Horror and the Amicus anthology films.  I'm more of a short story reader than a novel reader (just don't have time to finish a novel!), and go for everything from Edgar Allen Poe to - er, dare I mention his name on this forum? - Ramsey Campbell.

I'm more of a reader than a writer, though I've had a few articles published.  I keep trying to get the odd short story published (by "odd" I mean "occasional", not "strange" - though the latter might be a good description too!), but no luck as yet.  Still, I guess there's time ....

And so are you, Troo.  Sort of cute and cuddly, like a Disney character!  ;D

Thanks for the welcome.  And in case Troo and Josh are wondering, yes, it is me from the Pantechnicon forum (free plug - www.pantechnicon.net).  I've just changed my name slightly as I thought it was easier.

Working on it as we speak, unfortunately time and circumstances have caused it to take longer than I would have liked but it's getting there.

Nice one, Peter. The colours are pleasantly neutral on the forum, nothing bland or garish.

I'd prefer white or black for main (body) text of posts, instead of what looks to me like a very light grey on a darker grey background... Needs stronger contrast, IMHO.

Also, any chance of an option for members to edit our own posts?

Point taken, Pigasus, but it works okay for me, no matter what browser (out of four) I use, as well. But I can see your point. My minor quibble is that 'Today' posts don't stand out enough and ought perhaps to be in a totally different bolder colour altogether; because if you are a regular visitor the 'Today' posts on a Forum are the ones you automatically tend to go for.
