New site progress.

Post  Jacan Na'al on Wed Feb 09, 2011 5:49 am

Please go to http://oufholo.net and then come back here and post your opinion.

A screenshot of what you see would also help me along with what browser you use.

Thanks.

I love it! I love the background and the title/header with the smuggler and sentinel! I can't wait to go back to that site!

I was able to log in but the forums aren't there and I don't have access to have a signature or avatar pic but no worries. I am sure you are working on that Very Happy

The entire forum is there but I have not cleaned up user groups or permissions since importing users and posts. All that is easily fixed.

Right now I am working on the navigation buttons. The PM ones are proving difficult to code.

I like the base of it, but I don't know about the background. I personally love the background, but it just doesn't seem to hint "unifying force"

but meh, I might just need to look at it a bit more.

Why does it not make you think 'unifying force'? (and then I have a pre-prepared reply to what I think you are going to say lol).

Something like that lol.

I know I originally based OUF fully on green because at the time to me green = nature and OUF = the natural (full) power of the force.

So, consider the various ways that nature is powerful. Yes the power of regrowth in the plants and animals is mighty, but more obvious power can be found in the oceans, waves for example are impressively powerful. Now consider the power of a volcano, another one of the awesome powers nature possesses.

Now consider how much more awesomely cool the red/orange theme looks on the new site (better than my trials with blue and green at least)

And one day we may be able to offer several possible colour schemes, maybe,

Thanks for the SS and browser info Jas, from the SS it is appearing as intended, though the newspage text looks bigger. I don't think that's a deal-breaker though.

Login details from the old OUFHolo.net site should work too btw.

I also see the same black line/box that I get across the top of the page, I will have to try figure out why that is there and remove it.

Looking great Very Happy keep up the good work! I found a great site you can pull some code from for the forum layout if you like, just view the code; copy and past to tinker around with stuff... http://www.trinityguild.org/ they have a couple tools I like to see like the Recruiting tool and some of the layout for links and such.

by the way, this is the size whenever I use firefox, it doesnt seem to get all of it.

By the way, now that I look at the site, I end up really liking it.

The background is designed atm to fill the space either side of the forum for those with huge screen resolutions, if you don't get all of the background don't worry as long as you get all of the forum itself.

Same here I have had a little paly and all seems fgood to me.

I prefer the greens that this site uses as it seems more natural to me. Red/Orange brings up images of anger and violence but thats just my opinion.

It does look good all the same though

Colour and images can be reasonably easily changed in the future if we decide to one day.

Yeah cool Jacan.

I hope you didnt think I was having a pop at the new site just expressing my opinion!

Once everything is sorted over there I will start making myself busy on SWTOR again and try to do a recruitment drive again.

The recruits do seem to have tailored off recently. (well before I dissapeared for a little while they had lol)

The colors are an attempt at reclamation.

As the "Unifying Force" we (in a RP sense) use all forms of force power and the traditional blue of the Jedi and red of the Sith mean nothing to us.

By using red we are saying that we are not bound by the norms, everything is open to us and nothing is closed.

We expected there to be a few people questioning the color and its important that the majority likes and feels comfortable with the choices made.

Still can not log in. Every time I try it gives me the message "you have exceed the maximum number of allowed login attempts... bla bla bla" and the CAPTHACA is all squished and not visible; even after I tab through the fields its still does not let me log in.

It appears there is no spacing between the objects and they just squish together screen to follow:

that was Chrome but it was the same for IE, Safari and Opera...

Edit: its fine in IE now and Firefox appears ok but all my other browsers I use normally can not display it... Oh and in IE the main area is left justified now not centered like it was before, don't know why.

I also tried to log in with my credentials from this site but I assume I still need to register >.< so I will do that now.

I got this screen on registration:
