AVEN's new design: COMPLETED

Recommended Posts

Mycroft is Yourcroft

All right folks, the long-awaited moment has arrived.

I've been working on AVEN's design for weeks, and can now proudly present this, AVEN's new look:

I tried to take on everyone's wants, and I think I got everything, so what do you think?

Things to consider:

  • Member reaction?
  • How will this impact visibility?
  • Do we have enough cake?
  • How long before we implement this design?

Awesome!

More cake = more visibility

You can never have too much cake. Besides, more cake tax.

ASAP

It could work but it's not my most favourable look.

Member reaction?

Negative. Pitchforks and torches. But that has never stopped us before.

How will this impact visibility?

Greatly. The brighter color will attract co-workers to an AVENite's computer when said AVENites are surfing the net during work.

Do we have enough cake?

Within one standard deviation of optimal (assuming a Gaussian, and that is a big if).

How long before we implement this design?

3 April, which is when we come back from the next scheduled squirrel attack.

Do we have enough cake?

There's not enough Mics if you ask me! (Can there ever be too many....?)

Open Mic is still Mic with the sunglasses right?

Croft left out one important detail

This will help AVEN appeal to the mass internet culture.

The screenshot doesn't go far enough down to see gender, but I assume we still have that one with a unicorn icon, with Mic riding it? I sent the image AGES ago.

This may be late notice, but I feel like this would be a more accurate image for Site Comments:

Would there be enough in the budget to procure the image for our design?

Purchasing actual llamas might be cuter than the sign, though...

I have two words for that: llama poop.

Does that mean you're volunteering for collection position, then?

Llama "walkies" sounds entertaining, though....

Not me, obviously

What about some of the staff we pay? We can pay for one more guy

I meant the staff's staff

Or we could just use the money we'd pay the new mod.

What new mod? I swear that the winner of the election was a member of the Silence!

The new design is definitely cool, but we've forgotten about ad revenue. We need to put forum pages on a background featuring our beloved sponsors:

The green is an eye killer .. <_< Sorry for the bad news. The background .. Umm is that cake? It will be rather annoying to look at a screen filled with cakes .. :( I am just being honest. Well good luck with the design.

That's a valid request - a special forum skin should be made for diabetics, with the reverse deltaX triangle filling instead of cakes!

:P

Have I actually become so AVEN-famous that my avatar has become a way to categories triangles?! :lol:

There are not so many members with over 3K lifetime posts on AVEN. You're in the all-time top 150 by post count. So yeah, you're quite visible.

Actually, 'reverse deltaX' is too long for a term; so I'll coin 'nablaX' instead.

I've been here less than a year and the majority of my posts are just me yelling about things in the CAPS LOCK CLUB. I certainly don't feel like I deserve to be visible *hides back into obscurity*

While I'm here though, I'd like to say that I refuse to support any AVEN design that does boy feature doge. As Robin has already said, it is essential to appeal to mass internet culture, and the best way to do that is through memes.

I also fully support the drama lama sign for site comments. Would it be possible to do something similar with the Hot Box? Hot box can be a scary place sometimes.
