Title: new layout?
Post by: rtil on September 22, 2007 10:10 AM
thanks to blordow i've lately been feeling like the layout of the site needs a complete overhaul. are you guys sick of the old design or what?
Title: new layout?
Post by: CoolDrMoney on September 22, 2007 10:21 AM
I still feel cause of the like...very conservative colors and shape of the site, the lights dont belong. So if you could just redesign the whole site to make them feel less out of place yeaaa...thatd be great okay

It sounds alright with me

colors are a bit bland for my tastes
Title: new layout?
Post by: Dagolith on September 22, 2007 03:00 PM
i think it needs to be completely redone, everything, colours, shapes, sizes, sounds, tastes, everything.

Go fall in a hole already why don't you

you keep on making pointless "I'M LEAVING YOU GUYS ARE BIG MEANIES" threads, then 2 days later you come back

Rtil should just permaban you

that would solve everything

I think a redesign is a good idea
Title: new layout?
Post by: Blordow on September 22, 2007 08:09 PM
the back alleys needs to look more lively. it could attract more people to the site if the layout is appealing/attractive.

colours are a big deal. you've chosen really bland colours in my opinion. i'd be certain if youd put some effort into constructing a better site layout you'd attract a hell of a lot more users to your site and forum.

instead of doing a big open spaced site layout like you have already, add some navigation tables to the left and right. give the users a bit of variety and options when they visit this site.

i dunno i see it
well i like the stoplights
they will fit in the new layout color scheme though
i'm thinking black, gray and one or two colors to compliment it
it will be more cyberpunk-ish looking

You should use those old lights that were here like 2 months ago

i don't really like them anyway

I like the stop lights, as well as the current color scheme. >_> It would be nice if the website's layout looked nicer though.
Title: new layout?
Post by: yes on September 23, 2007 03:11 PM
the frontpage doesnt flow too well with the other stuff thats on it in my opinion. and maybe instead of having 5 or 6 different pages you could set up a tab that has the months with the year next to it (Sept 2007, Oct 2007, etc.). kind of like an archive. it would make everything seem a little more organized. its a tedious process though find all the right months and put them in the right category so its up to you.
Title: new layout?
Post by: rtil on September 23, 2007 05:37 PM
archives are for the news posts only really. i want people to be able to access content based on its category, so i'm sticking with links for different pages. but i'll definitely be doing an overhaul on design, as well as changing this forum's color scheme. it it will fight the stoplights but not the banner at the top which will have to change.
i think the picture below pretty much sums this thread up

Title: new layout?
Post by: rtil on September 25, 2007 01:06 AM
this is generally what the new site is going to look like except shorter width-wise
you can tell me what you think but i probably wont' change anything if you suggest it
Title: new layout?
Post by: Dagolith on September 25, 2007 01:24 AM
i really like the background, and a transparent content box is cool. also i was thinking that having all the opions on the side like that would be interesting, but how about having them look more like part of the background.
And i'm assuming that your going to put a little more work into "the backalleys" sign on the right, it's cool they way it is, just looks a little unfinished.
Title: new layout?
Post by: rtil on September 25, 2007 01:47 AM
it is way unfinished, this is all just sketches. i'll try to have the links look like they are lights on the buildings. for now they arej ust simple gradients, not embedded into the background at all. i'll do it by adding colors to make it look like it's shining on the building

It's kind of dark

not like gothic dark

just really dark
Title: new layout?
Post by: rtil on September 25, 2007 10:14 AM
the back gradient will be a tad lighter
it will be fall colors
i'm making this template so that it's seasonal. in the winter the back gradient will be light blue/gray and i'll put snowflakes on it, in spring i'll make it kinda pink/violet, etc. should be either really cool or really gay either way i'm doin it!!!!!!!
Title: new layout?
Post by: W.A.C. on September 25, 2007 10:44 AM
The layout's concept is cool but yeah, I'm glad to hear the final version will look a lot better since the buttons look horrible. Having the links look like lights will probably look good though. The orange-redish color in the backgrounds doesn't look very good IMO.
Title: new layout?
Post by: Nadroj0711 on September 25, 2007 12:38 PM
now THAT'S an overhaul

and it looks pretty sweet
Title: new layout?
Post by: mishkamash on September 25, 2007 12:44 PM
rtil you could even set it in the holidays, like 4th of July would be red white and blue and/or fireworks (maybe in that piconjo pic you did earlier)  or Halloween with pumpkins, ghosts, etc... but that would be extra work

It's up to you

i could figure out how to program that in eventually. for now i'll just change it manually

it looks fine on my old crt but most flatscreens make it look like barf

hey, maybe you could have little things moving, like fans spinning slowly, or pumps.... pumping, and the lights could fade on and off randomly, it'd look cool.

i was thinking about it. it might cause a lot of lag on machines ( like my own ), anything animated runs slower in a web based environment. but i'll see what i can do.

Post by: KingDavid on October 5, 2007 09:10 PM
Yeah, me and David share the same name. It's neat but if you think about David is an extremly common first name, and Moore is an extremly common last name. I go by David now, Kingdavid is just my ghey screen name. The other David though, is a cool guy but I do not like him stealing my sigs - but it's good now david  I really think you need to attempt harder at flash mind you. But this topic isn't about us sharing names. Rtil I was talking about have you reached a conclusion on redesigning or not.
