As many of you have noticed we have a shinny new logo on WarSeer. I have to thank Machine God and his artist for creating it. We are probably going to be tweaking more of the site layout in the next few weeks so watch for further improvements.

While the logo is great and all, the site is now all messed up for me, everything is stretched all to the right now. So I have to scroll across for rumours and search, or allow my Browser to be at full screen, which isn't pretty (and actually seems to be giving me a headache...).

Edit: Ok seems the reason I'm getting a headache trying to read the site now, has to do with the annoying charcol colour on the left (surrounding the Avatars and such), trying to read white text on a black backround + a light charcol grey isn't fun.


I know you said you'd be tweaking the site so I thought I'd mention this right away.

That part of the style hasn't changed. The new logo should only be slightly wider and thus shouldn't cause scroll bars. Out of interest how wide is your browser window normally?

I assume your main issue is that you are having trouble with the right aligned menu which I'll adjust as I do see your point there.

I have to say that the logo looks great! Quality work there.

@Nick: Would you care to fix the redirect on the www.portent.net/forums to the Warseer forums? It's not looking that nice right now. :)

This is a screen of my desktop with the browser at my normal size (which the Warseer site used to fit in would need of scrolling).

My Desktop at 1024 by 768 (http://hl.udogs.net/files/Uploads/%20User%20Uploads/Horus%27s%20uploads/Random%20Junk/desktopscreen.gif)

I have to have the browser window take up the full screen to get rid of the scroll bit.


And I'm sure the charcoal grey wasn't there before, as my avatar used to blend into the black backround...

Great adition!!!! Actually, I already had the Warseer page pre-loaded on the browser (I use opera) and realised that the new logo is there when I first reloaded to a new page. I have a 1280x1024 resolution and it's just great. It's very foreboding. Well done!

The old format use to make the logo and ads overlap. This version makes that as 2 seperate images instead of one as a bg and one as a normal image. This forces the browser to keep its size.

Maybe nick can bring it back to the old way just to allow the 800x600 users to not have a hscroll.

I dont know if this has been brought up or is linked to the new logo, ( which looks awesome btw) But from the home page when i click to the "view new posts" on the left hand side of the screen i get sent to basicly to a timed out or error screen. I forget what it actually says but it doesnt take me to the newer posts. Thnx guys.

Hows that now? I'm afraid that the advert now floats over the logo with smaller resolutions but it prevents scrollbars.

logo looks awesome, but i'm having a bit of a problem with it. i seem to be getting the top of the "wings" bit by where the ads are, then the whole logo repeats itself over the top.

not a computer person by any stretch of the imagination, so i have no idea what's causing it! i'll try and put up a picute of what it looks like so i don't have to describe it badly.

here's the picture:

EDIT: i'm having a problem attaching. i'll give it another go soon.

EDIT 2: can't attach it - too big. i'll try and condense it

Does that fix it? It does mean that the logo is no longer something you can click on but there is always the link just below you can use.

Looks much better, the ad thing being over the logo doesn't really bother me, as I'll hopefully be making a donation to the site soonish.

I demand Nick gets in contact with somone who can produce T shirts with this design, surely that can rake in some support money to cover or even go over the cost of production...

this design is the best.

__________________________________________

It's too bright and sets the new logo which additionally is upwards orientated too much apart. It feels like not belonging to the site for me :(

The last logo did seem so much more integrated. What if you tried to make that line not in white but a mild shade of grey? I think that would fix it.

Will be there a wallpaper with the new logo? Would look great on my monitor here at the office.

Possibly, we have attached the full size images so if anyone wants to make a wall paper they can. Otherwise I expect Machine God will look at it once the fantasy logo is done.

I'm not so sure about the T-Shirt, sure it'd be awesome to wear to Carnage events and would support the site, but I can't see myself wearing it in public. People might realise I play with toy soldiers in my free time.

EDIT: And hooray for the new logo, have you ever seen such a beautiful sight?

New logo rocks btw, however the links underneath it to the right look odd, like some sort of glitch. I think they should be centralised like the logo.

BTW I have adblock on so I don't know if there is an advertisment that is why they are there.

The logo looks too cramped inbetween the ad-field and the menu. Perhaps either give more space (as in much more) above and under, or put the ad-field on the left side.

Central is good btw., this logo design prefers a central position :)

Well I have a weird problem...I can't see the logo at all. I have tried clearing my temp internet files and cookies yet see only this:

hey Nick, is the new logo (http://www.warseer.com/images/wing.jpg) created on a certain site (type here and see your text with flames, etc.), maybe a certain program? or did someone (I saw references to Machine God) do it for you?

and knowing my luck, the answer will be somewhere in one of the above posts :rolleyes: lol

Though the old logo was there and I had no problem. With the new logo I have to wait forever and I STILL get nothing. I guess no new logo love for me.

Ah nick the details will come in the future. Im actually in the process of getting my own VPS. I will be hosting a site for soheil's artwork etc. I will let you know then.

That logo was about 3-4 hrs of work. Not to bad considering some of his work has taken 12 + hrs. This (http://www.project-oblivion-mod.com/Downloads/p13_sectionid/2/p13_fileid/1) wallpaper he did took 12 hrs. He mainly uses a combination of 3d max and photoshop to do most of the work. You can see some of his other work at http://soheil.deviantart.com/

There is more to come yet however he is wiping his pc and will then be back up and running soon.
