So this thread was created following this discussion on the video thread...

Just changing the top banner for a more attractive theme would be a start Nov, and that's all you need to do really. The current theme of the top banner in my honest opinion is very bland and tacky, and uninteresting. Eye candy and visuals are very important, even on a forum interface.

Ok then, we need a banner thread? :chuckle:

I agree it can be better... something modern looking and perhaps a different slogan.

Perhaps even slightly thinner also, to compact the site a little more.

Im no artist btw, so i dont think i will be making anything decent anytime soon. :hahano:

Good, sorted then. lets see what we can come up with. A more interesting banner will benefit the forum massively in my opinion. I'll let you do the honours of starting the banner thread nov. :hahano:

At the moment we have this up there...



Image size is 150px high by 980px wide. The site width is fixed so any new banner has to be 980px .. the height could be the same, or thinner perhaps, though making it the same would be easier. :yup:

The background color at the top of the site (as well as the dark 'swirls' in the vortex ... is #061e36

So if anyone has any ideas, or is any good with graphics and can put something together...

Those last two might be a bit controversial around here. :hahano: :ponda: :wissl: :twitch:

The first one looks nice and clean.

Im a bit busy now but will take a closer look at all of this when i get a moment.

Slogan ideas are welcome too.. we might come up with something better :dunno: :ponda: maybe, maybe not. Tho i think what we have as the slogan isnt too bad when i think about it.

ok.. honest thoughts on the above .. firstly i think the background and graphics look good.. but i have some thoughts about the slogan...

1. Not everyone here is like minded, and likely never will be. :chuckle:

2. I think we should stay away from 'alternative' kind of words, because, well, truth is truth and we should hope that it becomes mainstream eventually, so id like to project that.. instead of the 'alternative' thing.

3. the site is more than just a forum, so when that banner is on all of the pages (it will be by default) ... i guess we need to avoid labelling it as a forum, as its more than that... and even though the other parts of it arent really utilized, they might be used more in the future... i guess we should use the word 'site' with those kinds of slogans.

Just telling it how it comes to me... and no harm in putting ideas out.

EDIT: we may already have some wankers here. :wissl: :larf:

O.k, the No Wankers slogan it is then.. :hahano:

Just joking mate. I like the dark blue background and Gold Truth zone graphics too. It should also go O.k with the blue and white interface. Any suggestions about the slogan?

We could go with the slogan we have now, on your banner, and get the banner up there? :ponda: Just a thought.

Then if something better comes to us it can be changed, no biggie. :cool:

I mean google changes their header like every week and they do ok. :hahano:

Which one, the one with the key? Yeah, it's easy to just change the slogan anyways. Go for it and see what it looks like.

The logical reality slogan line should be.


truth needs no investigation but all lies require identification.

;)

Truth its all & everything always fixed & static; but lies is what covers up all truth.
Truth needs no investigation; but lies do to lift the veil for the already existing truth to appear.

Not bad :ponda: True.. and accurate...

or other variations that imply lies but dont use that word... Truth needs no investigation, but the rest... ... or similar.

I really like the first part "Truth needs no investigation," ... the second half could use some brainstormin perhaps. :ponda:

Tho im thinking using the word 'lies' etc in the slogan is a little bit full on. :ponda:

This might sound off to some but as ive said before i think we need to give this place a mainstream kind of feel... at least at first glance (getting stuck into reading posts is another story) .. i think thats what they fear and dislike the most. :ponda:

Though what you wrote there seems worthy of being somewhere on the site.

I think any slogan has to be kinda short-ish, dunno.

Well its up there now. i think we should go with the slogan we had though for now (its in the OP) ... until we decide on something else... the 'forum' thing has to go for one, for reasons i already mentioned. :chuckle:

Ive changed the menu to grey also, i think its a decent looking change, a bit of contrast instead of so much blue.. i think it looks better.

Its one of the default colors in the template so easy to change, no messing about with css, just the click of a mouse.. the other default colors are no good other than blue.. they are green, pink and red. :noway:

TRUTH ZONE

Where your voice can be heard

:ponda:

Im not sure we need the hyphen between truth and zone either.. i mean thats there for the URL because, well for one i think its good to seperate the words in the URL, but also, truthzone.everything decent is already taken. :chuckle:

But for the site header, i think we should lose the hyphen perhaps? :dunno: Why is it needed when it can just be a space?

....srsly ... I agree, there's no need for the hyphen in the name Truth Zone. That should be left as domain name only.
