Come to think of it, It looks like the bastard child of Windows 8 and the 80's.

Also, this clearly shows Ableton has stopped caring about their image, as even their logo turned into something that looks like a non-functional barcode.

Distinctive colours added to post for clarity and readability.

It's not so bad if you invert the colors in OSX.

Was Torsten Slama fired? Or is he still doing design work for Ableton, but has lost his mind?

This is beautiful design:

This is usability:

This website and forum is an insult to anyone who cares about aesthetics and user experience:

What happened you guys?

you need an add-on for either Firefox or Chrome.

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/stylish/

the following style will make it look like this

Code: Select all

@namespace url(http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml);

@-moz-document domain("forum.ableton.com") {

body{background-color:#95A2AB!important;color:#43423D!important;font-weight:100!important;}

html body.ltr div#wrapcentre div#pagecontent table.tablebg tbody tr th{color:#43423D!important;font-size:1.2em;font-weight:100!important;}

}
edit.. the link is dead but i figured out the program is called stylish.

how do you add this script in chrome?
what i did was copied the code and pasted into "add new style" and then i saved it as ableton forum.



i need your help man!, the abletons abandoned their members and im left here in this war torn hell hole of a forum and im probably going to die

Don't mind the new look at all. Some of these comments against it are pretty hilarious though.
