More Imaginative Color Scheme for Topic Borders

Postby greenphantom » Wed Oct 21, 2009 4:35 pm

Eyes are getting fuzzy from luminescence orange glare
in contrast to the black borders of Dharma Wheel http://www.dharmawheel.net
suggest that this forum setup after an afterthought or
fallout of splinter faction from Esangha :P

PS This Forum needs a better color scheme for Topic Borders
through use of light pastel shades instead screaming red for admin fonts

Smilies also kind of distract and detractfrom the flow of discussion and
best done in black and white instead of yellow

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

Buddhists Texts in Brahmi Script : http://www.virtualvinodh.com/brahmi-lipitva

yo dharmaṁ paśyati, sa buddhaṁ paśyati
One who sees the Dharma, sees the Buddha

na pudgalo na ca skandhā buddho jñānamanāsravam
sadāśāntiṁ vibhāvitvā gacchāmi śaraṇaṁ hyaham

Neither a person nor the aggregates, the Buddha, is knowledge free from [evil] outflows
Clearly perceiving [him] to be eternally serene, I go for refuge [in him]

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

The yellow/orange is a rather obvious choice for a Theravada site:

I don't come here to feed a desire for sensory stimulation. The present colors serve their purpose which is to differentiate blocks of information.
Vision is Mind
Mind is Empty
Emptiness is Clear Light
Clear Light is Union
Union is Great Bliss

Multiple optional color themes might be nice, if possible.

I really like the color scheme here and wish they would copy it on Dharma Wheel. The main reason I don't go there is because it looks so grey and depressing.

Our eyes might see the colour, but our mind sees the like and the dislike.

This is a very peculiar conversation!
