Carnage Blender Title Page (in General)


Godpanda November 22 2006 2:41 PM EST

Anyone else thinking it could use some spiffiness?

Simply, I find myself simply getting depressed when I log on to the page. I love the game, I really do, but thats just a downer to log on to everyday. Grey and rust red? Ick.

Okay, maybe it sounds unimportant, but it seems about as impressive as having cardboard thrust in my face.


Just me?

I like the quotes, but maybe brighten the red, change the format a bit, and... something besides ONLY grey.

make it so it automatically signs in... i dont even know what the outside home page looks like, its been so long :P

So design something that isn't bandwidth intensive and I'm sure it would be taken into consideration. I'm not sure that there is anyone that LOVES the homepage. Just save your info and don't log out and you never have to see it.

Godpanda November 22 2006 2:50 PM EST

Well, I didn't think of that. But it must really be annoying for a new, prospective player to see that. Probably turns a good few new players off the game.

how do i save the info?

Click the checkbox below the login form. Firefox comes with a builtin password manager, as well.

I've tried a couple redesigns. People liked those even less.

How much of that is due to the human tendancy to dislike change is hard to say.

i did check it but it never works

Godpanda November 22 2006 4:14 PM EST

In this case, I think the opinion of new players should count. Have you considered giving new players a way to put information on that kind of thing?

Because, everyone here is hooked. It's the people looking for the first time you have to convince!

Shooto November 22 2006 4:16 PM EST

SK, make sure you don't sign out. That messes it up.

"How much of that is due to the human tendancy to dislike change is hard to say. "

Ask new people that aren't accustomed to the old page.

I smell a commissioning for Pixel....

Or, how about making the front page take the same theme that you're using.

If that's possible?

AdminJonathan November 23 2006 11:10 AM EST

no, because if you're at the login page, you're not logged in :)

How is it possible if you aren't logged in GL?

;)

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] November 23 2006 11:46 AM EST

Bah! Beat me down with my own lack of knowledge in the field! ;)

I donno, maybe the same sort of cookie that remembers your log in details could remember your theme?

Makes sense to the untrained! ;)

AdminNightStrike November 23 2006 12:22 PM EST

There's no reason you can't set a persistent cookie.

bartjan November 23 2006 12:37 PM EST

Persistent across different computers?

AdminJonathan November 23 2006 12:37 PM EST

it would be stupid to set a separate cookie for theme preference that didn't get cleared by logout.

Jon, If we make some new designs would you be interested in taking a look?
