How about changing the hand on the home page.

There's nothing wrong with the hand but it looks out dated now due to the new banner.

I suggest a reflective eye


Not that eye per se, and then the logo can be in the eye reflection, :dunno:

Me, too.
Although it's quite dark, has a threatening vibe and is making me a bit depressive ;)
At least this corresponds completely with reality.

The slogan is perfect.
I like the writing style very much, clear, attracting attention and no place for interpretation,
makes you very curious and want to see more.

I think it should stay like this.
.
"The truth must be repeated over and over again,
because error is repeatedly preached among us, not
only by individuals, but by the masses. In periodicals
and cyclopaedias, in schools and universities; every-
where, in fact, error prevails, and is quite easy in the
feeling that it has a decided majority on its side."

Agreed, the new site banner is pretty good, and the best design yet. I don't think much needs changing on it really, without over complicating things. The only thing I would think about changing is the style of the text perhaps. Keep it bright white, but maybe add a dark outline to the text border, or perhaps a 3D effect? I just feel the text is a bit plane, the theme itself is spot on though, so credit to IG for putting it together. I will post a few ideas and examples of different text later, and perhaps IG you could edit the banner to see how they work, if that's O.K?

I kinda like the home page pic tbh. Its telling peeps to seek truth, its simple yet has impact, and shows a bit of humanity with it being a persons hand.

Ive always known the banner could be better, but not sure that the home page pic needs to go.. plus we already have the logo at the top, so repeating it again in the welcome pic isnt the go imho.

Plus theres nothing wrong with some stuff just staying the same imho... especially if it doesnt need changing because its working the way it is... things are always changing in so many areas of our lives, some things just staying the same isnt a bad thing.. it gives a sense of familiarity and identity. Im babbling on now, but my 2c :hahano:

...

Im liking the banner we have now... if IG wants to try different text on his original background then thats up to him, im certainly open to zorro's suggestions... if IG has a go and other variations are posted here, im quite sure most of us here will agree if one of them is an improvement or not.

:dunno: Perhaps give the hand image an enhancement or an effect.

Maybe... that first one of yours doesnt look too bad actually... the second has a greenish tinge which i feel doesnt fit as well with the greys but the first one is ok.

Still not sure its an improvement though :ponda: I have actually just tried it, opened two home pages and got your pic into one, im going from one to the other to compare... not sure if its worth changing with that first attempt of yours... but im open to that pic being enhanced somehow... maybe if something is done to it that is more of an improvement over the original. :ponda:

Right now i think the original looks nice and clean, the colours and contrast fits well with the site and perhaps even moreso than before with the grey menu we have now... and it doesnt look new-agey when the image isnt manipulated (i agree with Zorro on the new age looking stuff)

This blue scratched edge one is my last effort. It looks a bit more streety than the other two that I posted but the blue might be too much. It looks like the hand is on the screen giving a pseudo 3d effect.

That's it from me :thumbup:

Just a small point about the banner, I guess it does not really matter but the letter layout is slightly off.

TRUTH ZONE
welcome to reality

See here how the slogan fits pretty well below the name, on the banner it's off centre.

The seek truth image is a god one, I actually like the original. The Phase3 video series did something similar in the last episode, here:



I was messing around in photoshop and came up with this:



The text can be changed, so can the font... Bullet, no bullet... whatever... if you like it and want anything change - let me know :)

The front one looks good in my opinion, take the bullet hole away though, and perhaps brighten the text a tad?

I agree. It's like painting half the inside of a house and leaving the rest undecorated.

I'm just being honest Nov. It may sound like I'm being awkward and picky but I just want what's best for the forum. The home page should match the forum banner in some way, or vice versa.

I like this, and yes lose the bullet hole. But the image in general I like....

I didnt think she looked like undercoat on the front page (imho :chuckle: ) .. undercoat is unfinished... yet i figured the home page image looks ok. :hahano: plus i liked the one eye symbolizmz :sulk:

Anyway.. :chuckle:

I think its kinda pointless repeating 'truth zone' in the welcome message pic again, heck its on the banner and in the welcome message text.

How about the dog tag idea but with 'seek truth' instead of repeating truth zone? .. since its in the same style and lettering. And id lose the bullet hole for that.

And... how bout this idea... a person, or soldier, holding the dog tag... with the 'seek truth' on it done in the same style as IG's truth zone tags. I think that would look very cool if the right pic is found, and makes sense... ie instead of being tagged with an ID youre tagged with seeking truth. :ponda:

examples of the idea... (im not saying to use these images, you have to find the right one obviously that will work... its more to show the idea, tho when you buy stock photos no ones going to claim copyright so that side of things might be the way to go if the right one is found)















If its a matter of throwing a few bux at a stock photo to get the non watermarked thing i think its worth considering too, if the image is worth it.

More pics (google images) www.google.com.au/search?hl=en&site=imghp&tbm=isch&source=hp&biw=1280&bih=699&q=holding+dog+tag&oq=holding+dog+tag&gs_l=img.3..0j0i5l6.18.2984.0.3723....dier+holding+dog+tag

Just an idea :hahano:

I wanted to find a pic of someone holding a tag out with their hand, but when its around their neck.. ie if you were wearing one round the neck and it was hanging down on your chest, and you grab the tag between thumb and forefinger and hold it out..

But the focus/foreground being the tag... so the tag appears large and in the foreground... the person/face is smaller and in the background, perhaps out of focus too... like the hand we have now, but holding out a tag while still chained around neck.

This is kind of what im getting at, but these are wrong because the focus isnt on the tag, tag is too small etc...








Where such an image exists that would tick all the boxes idk. :hahano: we need a photo shoot. :chuckle:

It's good, it's attractive, it's clear ... why disimprove at all costs?

The hand is fine as well, no colours, pls!

Yes, that's a good idea imo and I was thinking the same myself.

Have the dog-tag image posted by irongate, lose the bullet hole and change the text from truth zone to 'seek truth' as what is already on the hand.

As I say there's nothing wrong with the hand, though with the new dynamic banner it now seems pale 'peely wally'.

Dog tags can be created and pictures of them saved :up:

I've tried to do it but the text is too small, perhaps someone else might have more luck.
