Icons for the webpage
« on: April 04, 2012, 07:26:32 pm »

Hey guys had an idea for our forum/webpage, and want to hear how you guys feel about it.

We have quite a few games now, and I was thinking about making icons for the different games we have kindof like what St0rm has for their forums. They have a game icon for each of the subject topics.

here are a couple of examples:

we have General renegade, renegade moddleing, ect for renegade for each of these subject topics we could put a renegade icon (the nod symbol or tiberium crystal)

for the FS subject topics we could use the rebel alliance symbol

anyways what do you guys think?

I despise the idea of copying storm, as their main admin is a cheating DOSS'ing lying and molesting douchebag.

Besides that, I'm not entirely sure what you mean?

Molesting is one I'm not familiar with? The rest I know.  I don't want to "copy st0rm" myself, but shippo does bring forth an idea.


What he means, I believe, is the blue/black big circle icons on the Main Forum page, we replace with icons for the games. Renegade stuff is the Renegade R (I assume new posts = that on fire, or coloured, or something. Transparent when no posts?). The First Strike forums can use the Rebel logo (or... the FS logo :P I'll have to find a decent sized one first). Battlefield we'll have to think up something.

Hmm, ok.. Not sure how easy that is to implement. Nor am I sure it'll look good, particularly because we tried to make the theme rather clean.

Reading that doesn't surprise me. My experiences with him did leave me to feel that he was a fair bit of a creep, the charges may have been dropped Nolle Prosequi, but it doesn't mean it never happened.


However, I don't think we should dismissing ideas because they originate from a cunt like Wilost0rm. We should be dismissing them because they are bad ideas.

I certainly don't have a problem with the current forum theme (tho I think my favourite one is still the old orange and black :P), but it may be worth experimenting a little.

The idea is not ment to coppy storm, just using their forum icons as an example. (don't particularly like some of their icons anyway)  ::)

Like Gwynzer said the idea is to change the blue circle icons on the main page to an icon specific to that game.
just examples:

(tiberium crystal) Renegade

(battle mech) Battlefield 2142

(x-wing fighter) First Strike

Keep in mind i have no problem with the blue circle icons; not being a coder, if this looks like it might be to bulky to add don't worry you won't hurt my feelings.  ^-^

I think the major challenge would be to make the icons fit in well. If we have icons that fit in well with the theme, I like the idea. :)

Instead of possible replacing the blue circle icons, what about if we placed the new icons below the header of the section? Like in the picture, place in below Renegade, if its possible and if it can fit.

Technically, I think it would not be so hard. Someone will have to come up with a design and have to see if it actually works out better there or instead of the blue icons.

We could ask LeeumDee to do it he is a good artist.



Here is 3 of the icons we could use, sorry about Battlefield 3, couldn't come up with anything more interesting. Mabie you guys would have a more creative idea for battlefield icon.
