Site changes

on 3/10/2016, 11:52 pm
Heya, we're going through some aesthetic changes with the layout of the site at the moment.

For now, don't worry about it.

Update 8/4/16:
@Rapidfir3Pho3nix wrote:Current changes done recently:
- added banner
- added detachable navigation bar
- added account menu to navigation bar on the right
- added links to account menu
- changed unread/read icons for private messages
- included a little notification system that tells you when you have a private message (little green circle on the left of the account menu)

and I think thats it so far. Still got more changes coming though.

As always if y'all have any suggestions or anything tell me lol

A note on the navigation bar... so it works and everything BUT it will break if you resize your window. It's not a major thing. It just ends up sticking to the op of your window even when you scroll all the way up. All you have to do to fix it is refresh your page and it will be where it should be.

edit: I also added an arrow and title link to the previous page when you're looking at topics/posts

How do you guys like the look of the site? It's definitely brighter now, that's for sure.

There's still some more things to be done, but go ahead and drop some suggestions here if you have any.

I think the other one definitely had more personality but this one is a lot more practical and straight forward.

Yeah I agree for sure. I am working on a few things that I think will give a bit more personality to the site I think but for the most part I think this is pretty much how it's gonna look

I already miss the megaman icons, envelope icons are boring imo

@Rapidfir3Pho3nix wrote:For example, I added it to where the original poster's avatar appears on the side of the posts!

this change is cool.

like the color of the site, I liked the previous look too though, another reason why I say we should have options for which theme to use.
speaking of options how about 1 to add an image to the background(kind of like what we had on that other spritas site last year) and whenever we go to someones userpage/topic we see their theme choice/background image.

just a thought.

Captain Falcon vs Bang Shishigami: 4%      Vergil vs Sephiroth: 60%      

Killer Instinct Origins: TJ Combo:10%        Dragonclaw vs Evil Ryu Remake: 10%

Lloyd vs Kratos:13%                Kratos vs Cloud:10%        Ryu Hyabusa custom sprites:1%

Right now the envelope is kinda a placeholder. I'll probably replace with a mario item block when I'm feeling less lazy and yeah I agree about the megaman icons but we wanted to go with a flat kind of feeling so we decided to forego the main forum icons, though maybe if enough people say something then we'll add them back

That's definitely a change I would like to implement and now that we have access to the main founder acct we might be able to do something like that. gotta talk to joe-bro about it

PATT <3

And yeah it is pretty bright but eventually we will give people the ability to choose their own themes. Right now this is pretty much the default look though.

oh hey, I am sure you guise noticed but this already but there are mario hats on the sides of forums and categories.

basically if they're gray no new posts have been made in that forum/category.

if there is a new post then it turns red.

simple shit, right?

well, I put it there to get a feel of how a flat icon would look there and I think it's definitely something that should be there. but what do you guys think should go there instead of the mario hat?

I think the hats nice, but when we finally get the option for theme choices, I would like to see a combo breaker(for the lulz)


no not the gif itself just the animated text, but edited to be shiny and glowing.

also the return of the megaman heads, and Zero too. and a Hadouken, oh and pokeballs(normal for no post masterballs for new post)

hey you, don't be posting with the admin acct. or put avatar on it, but we should probs use the admin acct just for editting the site

yeah, don't know about any combo breakers but the other ideas sound pretty sick.

Thanks to template editing, Joey and I've been able to make some pretty good changes around the site.

Here's a list of what's been changed in case anyone is interested.
Spoiler:

- the homepage (portal) news section (not actually quite done yet)
- the topic reply and new post buttons and now text and include icons
- the social media links has been moved down to the footer and now include pretty icons to click on
- removed the who is online and statistics from bottom of forum cuz they're on the side bar now so it was redundant
- edited the who is online, latest topics, and statistics side bar widges

So now we want to change the layout of the Profiles cuz they ugly af. I kinda already have an idea of how I want them to look but I was wondering if anyone had any kinds of suggestions.

I know one big thing people will probably want is customization but idk if we're able to do that quite yet so sit tight on that one.

Anywho lemme know what y'all think.
