Personally, I like Skye's banner, though I have to agree it doesn't quite fit our new look. At the moment, all I have to say is that I would prefer characters over consoles, in keeping with our Brawl roots.

On a side note, what are the odds of getting Nicole to join?

No reason to take offense Skye. After all, we're also adults (except Cory) and should know enough to use tact. Wink

Out of curiosity, if you were to make a different banner, what would you have in mind?

I think it should be voted upon before any action is taken. My primary concern is not necessarily the appearance, but the fact that the banner is a bit dated at this point. It's a fantastic banner and no one disputes that, but the characters don't seem all that appropriate any more. I mean, Travis Touchdown as the more or less central character doesn't really make a ton of sense. If we were to have a new banner, we could go one of two routes: either we could have new characters and a sleeker title presentation, or we could skip the characters and just have a sleek background with a more prominent title whose colors and design work in conjunction with the rest of the color palette of the site. Those are just my thoughts, but as I said earlier, I'm not die-hard either way. It's a matter of what the majority want at this point, and I appreciate Silens' acknowledgment of this.

just throwing this out there

IF you do a new banner can it just be neutral like the consoles or controllers? if you do characters some one is going to say why dont you have 'x'? just saying

Well, that's up to everyone to decide, granted we get a new banner at all. But I can definitely see that idea working.

I think a new banner is in order and I agree with Jody, that it shouldn't have videogame characters. If this happens then everyone'll want their favourite characters; I'll want Commander Shepard, smashed'll want some guy from that Skies or Arcadia game that no-one's heard of, Cory'll want pikachu most likely and the list goes on...

But I have no idea what's wrong with having Skye or Nicole make the new one. How about ewe decide on an idea, both make their interpretation and we open a vote or a compromise.

Also what's up with that weird black swirl thing next to the URL? Can we remove it and replace it with something that corresponds with gaming, please?

Skye no longer has the program to make a new one...if she did, I'd ask her in a heartbeat. While my GF could make a fantastic one, it would take her time and a fair amount of effort.

As for the black swirl, One forum only gives you 5 of those little symbols to choose from. There are no "gaming" ones. And trust me, that's the best one...the others are like stars and hearts.

I personally think the new banner should be sleek and neutral to this site. We're no longer focused on Brawl (thank goodness) and choosing characters from different games could pose a problem long term. The current banner is a perfect example of this. Something that just displays the site name is fine. I'm sure Nicole will do an excellent job in whatever you guys ultimately choose Smile

Last I recall, it did let you upload or link to a custom favicon, but I might be remembering incorrectly.

You are probably right. I remember seeing an option for it somewhere in the admin panel when I was fooling around with a clan's forum, although I didn't bother messing with it because of how little I cared.

Give me a little credit, Fire. If nothing else, I like being unique here Razz

Still, you have a point. While I think the consoles themselves would be kind of tacky, a more neutral theme seems reasonable. Although I'm hitting a blank wall looking for other possibilities......possibly a controller?

Well, we may get somebody you forgot to mention. I didn't get a chance to talk with him, but BrawlBroKOKing was on the chat earlier today. Shocked

Why would you do that? Nevermind, you've violated rule #4 of the chat box of this site. Getting sick of your behavior anyways. You're done here. Do not come back. Any and all future traces will be eradicated.

Hopefully he'll pop in at some point...but I'm not really expecting him to...sadly enough. Neutral

Any other thoughts on the site anyone? I know some people had ideas about combining forums but I can't remember and don't really feel like digging up the posts since I'm lazy like that... Razz

Hey Hey Hey now

Being lazy is my job
Find yourself something else that would make you unique :p

Maybe adding new Topics would be a good idea I guess. But I mean more then we do right now. And following upcoming games is good to i.e. The thread of SF X TEKKEN

We need to understand what makes people like yourself want to (and NOT want to) post. We had a good run when everyone started springing up again in early September, but that quickly pittered off, leading to the more casual members amongst us, such as Silens, Gremlin, Pugs, Samco, and even you Waaar, appearing less frequently, and then-ultimately-not at all.

What's the reasoning behind this? I admit that I'm less inclined to post when I see the forum stagnant, but is that the reason these particular members don't appear regularly, or only appear when other members are there? It seems that the forementioned members have a similar sentiment towards this, and perhaps even the die hard members do as well. I'd like to reflect more on this...and let's be honest people!

Checking up here again, as I said I would to you Cory.

In response to the latest comment, I personally visit the forums all the time, but only post when I have something meaningful to say. Like now, I've come back to talk mass effect with cory but will participate in the other threads.

On the other hand I wanted new threads to post in but didnt have any idea on what to start new ones and didnt wanna do a bad one just to show that I post :p

It seems like everyone's been a bit busy lately...or maybe people haven't been gaming as much?? I don't know...I know that I've been a bit busy with a lot of things, but I've beaten ME2, so I'll be on a bit more. I hope some of you guys will be, too.

Yeah, I've noticed you on a lot. I've been checking on too, but of course, life, money, girlfriend, work, games...takes a lot of time out of your life. lol It would be easier to post if we saw more people on, though.
