Color swatches for Gates and more polls!

Hello, hello everyone – There aren’t too many things left for the brown Gates theme, so I’d like to start on the dark version of it. I have a few colors in mind for this, so I came up with some swatches I’d like you to vote on. Additionally, there are two more polls below, so please vote on those, too!

Option 1

Option 2

Option 3

Option 4

Option 5

  1. I’m going to vote (6) none of the above, but I’m aware of the difficulty I would have envisioning so many colors applied to the screen. It’s a lot to ask to retool a sample 5 times, but I’d need that in this situation.

  2. Honestly, I don’t like the Gates theme. I think it is too much, to heavy. BP themes should be very, very clean because of the abundance of information. I bought the buddy pass because I want to influence the next theme, but Gates, I don’t care much about it.

    I want to see a very clean, web 2.0 like type of theme, with widgets in the fat footers, or banner adds, etc.

    Clean, clean, clean.

  3. @Andres – The neat thing about Gates and futures BuddyPack themes is that you can get rid of much of the busy things — icons, widgets, background image. They’re all controlled by CSS, so it’s relatively easy to tweak it to suit your needs. But having said that, I prefer the minimalist approach, as well (eg. my own site), so either this next one or the third theme will definitely be a lot simpler =)

  4. I would love to test out gates asap if you have a version ready. Thanks. I have purchased the buddypass account but that didn’t yield any download. Thanks.
