New Layout  
I guess I kinda got bored of the dark colours.
But is this layout too girly? Please be honest.
I'm still working on the background image, not sure I want to stick with this one.
Just in case you haven't yet had a look:

I like it, but the text colour may be a little too pale, especially I see now in the commenting.

Do mine please! I need something new, but don't have the time or the energy.

Really? It's a dark grey. Perhaps it's your screen? The colours always look different depending on the screen, doesn't it?

Tell me what kind of layout you're looking for.
Here are some pretty ones:

wiccaqueen: Merlin - Katiewiccaqueen on September 4th, 2009 05:26 pm (UTC)
Well this one is from the same community, so not that much different ;-)

I'm glad you like it and the girly colours. I think I might just stick to it ♥

Mir persönlich wär das zu viel rosa, aber schön hell ist es auf jeden Fall. :)
wiccaqueen: Merlin - Arthur Bluewiccaqueen on September 4th, 2009 06:28 pm (UTC)
Ja also auf meinem Bildschirm kommt das nicht ganz so rose rüber. WIrkt eher wie ein blases Violet.
Na ja wie ich mich kenne werde ich mein Layout eh bald wieder ändern :-)

I loved the previous layout but this one is gorgeous as well. Adore the castle <33333
wiccaqueen: Merlin - Gwenwiccaqueen on September 4th, 2009 07:15 pm (UTC)
Oh thanks <3
I've also added a wee pendragon flag now ;-)
shotgun sinners, wild eyed jokers: Merlin: Arthurgrowling on September 4th, 2009 07:20 pm (UTC)
Aw, yay. Looks great. :D
wiccaqueen: Merlin - Arthur Smirkswiccaqueen on September 4th, 2009 07:34 pm (UTC)
Hihihi thanks :-)
Momomomotastic on September 4th, 2009 08:18 pm (UTC)
I still like the new layout!

If you need my help with the tiny icon search, let me know!
wiccaqueen: Merlin - Gwen Butterflywiccaqueen on September 4th, 2009 08:35 pm (UTC)
I have to first of all find tiny icons that I like. Any links?

Momomomotastic on September 4th, 2009 08:49 pm (UTC)
Uh huh,

here (though you gotta search through those because they don't differenciate between tiny icons and icons.)

Thanks looking through them now :-)
Momomomotastic on September 4th, 2009 09:50 pm (UTC)
Sorry 'bout the html screw-up.
Niccinicci_mac on September 4th, 2009 08:23 pm (UTC)
I dont think it's girly but it IS very pale. And the text is so tiny that old people like me need to squint to read it. LOL
wiccaqueen: Merlin - Keddi Hatwiccaqueen on September 4th, 2009 08:38 pm (UTC)
Do you think it's to tiny? I can read it without any problems but then I'm wearing glasses whenever I sit in front of my computer so maybe that makes a slight difference.

Niccinicci_mac on September 4th, 2009 08:40 pm (UTC)
I have to take my glassess off to focus on a screen. I need them for far away stuff. No its just the size of the text is quite small to me, but I think it's harder still becuase its so pale. I do have a very bright screen on the lappy though.
wiccaqueen: Merlin - Prince Pouty Pantswiccaqueen on September 4th, 2009 08:55 pm (UTC)
My lappy is quite bright as well, but I know every screen makes the colours look different. It really can be a problem sometimes *sighs*
Osolone: Rossetti/Proserpineosolone on September 4th, 2009 08:33 pm (UTC)
Nooo! I love it! So pretty! I'm a very girlie girl anyway so it suits me fine. lol

<3
wiccaqueen: Merlin - Pretty Katiewiccaqueen on September 4th, 2009 08:40 pm (UTC)
I'm glad you like it :-)

Well I'm usually not much of a girlie girl. I don't think I own anything that's pink when I take a look into my closet.
But I do like a bit of pale pink when it comes to my journal ♥
Miss Fuzzy: [Bradley] hearts Colinronsoftie on September 4th, 2009 09:02 pm (UTC)
Woot! Pretty! I was clicking on your LJ earlier today and no Colin turned up and I first thought my PC/LJ was messing up but now I see you've been redecorating :D

According your PM: I do not mind at all, sweetie :)
wiccaqueen: Merlin - Bradley Cutewiccaqueen on September 4th, 2009 09:04 pm (UTC)
Aww thanks hon! *huggles*

Well I had to mess around with the layout for a while like usual but now I think I'm finished and I'm really pleased with the 'girly' result :-)

Ximeriaximeria on September 4th, 2009 09:28 pm (UTC)
The font is awfully small -- not that I can't just use opera to enhance it, but what really makes it heard to read is the lack of contrast between font colour and background. The font is pale lavender and doesn't show up very well. Added that, as much as you're entitled to your layout, you did ask for honest opinions. Anyone who doesn't have 20/20 vision will either close down the window, use their own layout to read or like me, use the browser to suspend the css of the layout. Apart from that, the colour setting of the background and the image, the setup etc of the layout looks very good.
wiccaqueen: Merlin - Arthur/Merlin b/wwiccaqueen on September 4th, 2009 09:46 pm (UTC)
The font in the comments and entries is grey actually. Only the link colour is violet.
Ximeriaximeria on September 4th, 2009 09:57 pm (UTC)
Ah, could've fooled me - must be the size that made it impossible for me to tell - you did ask, so please don't take it the wrong way.
wiccaqueen: Merlin - Arthur/Merlin b/wwiccaqueen on September 5th, 2009 09:06 am (UTC)
Ah no worries.
It's really quite well readable on my laptop, so no idea.
Trini: thinking hurtstrinipedia on September 4th, 2009 10:34 pm (UTC)
love it!!
I preferred the previouns one, though, Colin looked mighty fine abd as much as the castle is beautiful it kinda can't compare XD

also? yeah, too much pink *prefers blue shades*
wiccaqueen: Merlin - Arthur Redwiccaqueen on September 5th, 2009 09:08 am (UTC)
It's really interesting reading the different opinions.
On my screen it's more of a lighter shade of violet than pink actually.
And I love my castle! But hey I can change the background whenever, that was the easiest thing to do.
But for now I'll stick with my 'Pink Camelot Theme' :-)

as long as you're happy, I'm happy. you know that. *smishes*
wiccaqueen: Merlin - SFTWwiccaqueen on September 5th, 2009 12:08 pm (UTC)
Awww I know
*huggles*
Fraukedestiny_f on September 5th, 2009 08:43 am (UTC)
sieht ganz gut aus, nicht zu girly. Aber der Text ist etwas zu blass. das ist zu anstrengen zu lesen finde ich.

Übrigens, vielen dank für die Postkarte! :) Hab mich super drüber gefreut, ist gestern angekommen.
*hugs*
wiccaqueen: Merlin - Lady Morganawiccaqueen on September 5th, 2009 09:09 am (UTC)
Ja das mit der Textfarbe werde ich wohl doch etwas ändern müssen. Bei mir auf dem Bildschirm passts, aber bei anderen eben nicht.

Freut mich, hab sie auch erst einen Tag später abgeschickt :-)

*hugs*
Babydracky: Pink Lilybabydracky on September 5th, 2009 10:46 am (UTC)
Awww!! It is lovely!
I like the castle in the background♥
But it's true that it is rather pale on my computer too... I can see everything but it is just a little pale^^
wiccaqueen: Stock - Flowerwiccaqueen on September 5th, 2009 12:09 pm (UTC)
Thanks hon.
Yes I'm thinking of changing the colours just a wee bit.
When I come around to it...
