  9. Really, the design looks great & very professional, and I like how you organised the main topics of NSK in the upper banner, really great job guys, I am looking forward to more activities & great things from NSK in 2014

  10. Just recently, far from coincidental to NSks presence on the tumblrs, I’ve invested pockets of time to picking up html coding. An awful butt-load of changes have come since I had a hand in coding. scripting. and such.

    The lengthy Op posts needed some enticement to mine eyes, so I took Garrys recent post through the inspector and adjusted a couple things you may consider to apply. Attachd images are after and before comparisons, lining up the most recent paragraph viewed from the official publishing.

    Just to break up the monotony of the blanket of text i threw in some specific paragraph changes. Affecting only the first and every 6th.

    .entry>p:nth-of-type(1) {
    font-size: 130%;
    font-weight: bold;
    .entry>p:nth-of-type(6n) {
    font-size: 120%;

    The following affects the images embedded in the article, the sidebar images remain vibrant and bold, dulls the image opacity by default – however, when the mouse is hovered over it – returns to full.

    div.entry > img {
    opacity: 0.5;
    div.entry > img:hover{
    opacity: 1.0;
    transition: opacity 0.3s linear;

    Again, this was only affecting the post, as reflected on the url, and not the TL page. Looking back, I guess a drop shadow on the articl images may be welcome instead of the grey border. YMMV
    Would love to see the CSS/html. much padding. between header (margin-bottom: 0px) and main-content (margin-top:0px) should phx .

    good night! very sleep
