Re: Forum Makeover Time!!! :D

Also. If anyone else wants to use the title text, it IS a pain to try to cut out of the background and keep it looking nice*, so I recreated it complete with outline and shadow effects here . It's a PNG with transparency, so it should import well for most graphics programs. *I don't know about you,...

Re: Projects Phoenix and Ark

To be quite honest, the code behind the creature repository is a wreck. :P It's very specific to its current purpose and would take an insane amount of adaptation to be of any use for the type of site you want to do. While I would be glad to do what I could to help, I could not of course guarantee a...

Re: Projects Phoenix and Ark

In defense of the Wiki, it's difficult for us to maintain links to agents on such a bunch of constantly shifting websites who are fairly poorly maintained in their own right. How can we possibly keep all these links up to date when we don't have much help? This is why I have always been an advocate ...

Re: On the matter of censorship

Just thought I would point this out, but every time someone links basic cursing "censorship" on a forum to police-state tactics I laugh heartily. No one is forcing you to be here. :) Censorship implies that someone is actively working to deny you the right of free speech- no such right exi...

Re: Games Forum?

I'd really prefer if we kept away from that entirely, but hey, that's just me.

Btw, can you make your sig shorter, please? I don't want to have to turn them off.

Re: Banner Contest

As I said already, the rounded corners are completely unnecessary because the theme scripting is doing that itself. The current banner image does not have rounded corners. Check it. :P

Re: Banner Contest

Decided to have one more crack at it, this time with a different piece of the C2 background and text that I think looks a bit more muted and fits in with the current design nicely. I also applied a slight blur to the background to make the text stick out a bit more. ctopia15-sm.png ... I'm quite pro...

Re: Sub-Forum Idea

Seems a bit pointless to repost that for every new member. Post it in one place and link them to it if you feel like doing that, maybe?

Re: Sub-Forum Idea

Just so long as we don't create this vibe where people *have* to post an intro thread. Personally I would hate that. :P

Re: Banner Contest

I like EM’s fonts and banners, but because the site isn’t terribly busy (visually), the backgrounds seem out of place being sharp edged (which is why I suppose Danikat made the current banner with rounded edges). Maybe the use of some transparent rounded rectangles to lead into the image would help...

Re: Sub-Forum Idea

I agree with nornagon, I'm afraid. Let the newbies try their hand at contributing to existing discussions or start some new interesting ones.

I don't have a new theme to offer; just banners aimed towards the current theme. :)

Re: Banner Contest

Nope, I did no enhancement to them whatsoever. We just don't pay as much attention to the backgrounds after a while playing the games, I think- hence the direction I've taken with these banners. I really like the background art for all of the games. :) It is possible a slight change of color may hav...

Re: Banner Contest

Good grief I'm bored. Ok, have a few more, based on what people said they liked of my earlier work. These ones are all based on C3 art.

Re: Forum Rules

I'd really like it if this place could avoid that sort of nonsense. Word association threads and other silly little games accomplish little and keep bumping other interesting discussions down the page.

Re: Banner Contest

Here's one I made using the C2 background- I think it fits the current forum theme well.
Two versions with different font tweaks. :)

Edit: Removed these, there's better ones below. :)
