Hey um -- provide feedback/ideas
«: May 24, 2009, 04:45:05 PM»
The art in 'art zone' looks like a Japanese character more than a word.


Just sayin'.

Edit: Narnia says we're allowed to help re-design if we don't like it. I'm working up some ideas but if you have any, feel free to contribute here or in PM.

I agree. The word 'Art' is almost unreadable. I think the R needs redone.

the whole logo is fucking atrocious and whoever made it doesn't understand what the fuck "graphic design" and "typography" mean.

Then submit an alternative. The dimensions are 300 x 110.

You all just bitch and moan and never do anything proactive.

It's not an eyesore really, just the word art really sticks out to me. I'll see what I can do in terms of design since you've opened that option.

Edit: If you can send over a copy of the current one that would help too. The rest of it is ok, just the legibility of that one word needs tweaking.

I agree that "art zone" is hard to read.  I had to stop and stare at it for a second to realize it was words and not just some incoherent scribbles.

Just sayin'.

There is no need to bash Morgan over the logo. I picked the logo, I told her what I wanted. If you have an issue with it submit something else.

First, I don't know what is BS about newfam. The site is like 1,000 years ahead of FAMv3. The forum is better and the features on the alt list are better. There are more features hopefully in the wrond.

Why are they the same? Because FAM needed a new layout to work with SMF because the old site was a hack job between phpBB and custom coding which meant I could never update the forum.

Second, because FAZ's old layout sucked horribly. I hated looking at it everyday. I don't have money to pay people to do my web design for me and FAM and FAZ have both always been sister sites sharing common themes, colors, threads, etc. If you want to volunteer your services to make a completely custom SMF2.0 theme for either site, please do.

Otherwise, let me know when you run two websites with 3,000 active users each with google ads barely paying the hosting costs.

There are plans to host a theme/skin contest for FAM and FAZ in the near future. However, my fund at the present time prohibit that. In case you haven't heard, I'm getting married next May and that takes priority for my extra cash. However, if it bothers you that much that they are the same.. Submit your own custom theme to me.

too bad i made a typo there LOL.

its cool you run two websites with 3,000 active users each with google ads barely paying the running costs BUT that is ultimately irrelevant to me. all i know is that i have 2 convenient websites that look exactly the same.

i have 0 skill in web design so being like OH IF YOU VOLUNTEER YOUR SERVICES.. does you no good.

cool good luck with that
FAZ was fine before. couldnt you have just taken the exact same layout it had prior to the update and redo it so you could update the forums or whatever?

look, i literally know nothing about websites so ~*TYPING WITH THAT TONE*~ isnt very, y'know, fair. sorry im not an all-knowing master of the internet!!

I absolutely hated the old layout on FAZ and so did most of the community. It was a very poor hack of the default SMF theme.

hmm although the r is wayyy more legible in that.. the design of it doesn't match the rest of the font imo
it's too thick at the top and the left side of the t is rounded. the rectangular shape of the r is off too esp. when the rest of the font is full of sharp angles

of course this is coming from me who has no experience with fonts at all so i'm just giving my two cents, not gunna try making a new logo

Heeeey... that'd work well.

I'll still work on mine, but I won't be insulted if you chose his... no, wait! Idea! Install a randomizer in its place, and choose a couple of the good ones we'll crank out! :D
