New banner and new search function
« on: July 13, 2013, 03:46:38 am »
As of today, there is a "new" v6 theme acting as the default. At the moment, it is just a duplicate of v5 with a new banner i made to include more recent community programs. However, if you have any other suggestions for how things could be tweaked visually, feel free to post them below!

Also as of today, Sorunome has replaced the non-functional search bar (which has long been out of commission due to obscenely slow loading times) with a redirect to a site search on DuckDuckGo, so be sure to thank him if you see him around =)

Yay for working search :D

When it loaded an omni page it kind of made sense to have it in the same tab, but now that it's loading a separate site it should be a new tab imo. Maybe there could be a poll.


As for the forum theme, a random idea I had was maybe the could be recolored to match the theme a bit better, similar to the quote, modify etc buttons on posts.
(attached a couple quick edits in the style of the other buttons, guessing it could be done better tho)

Normally I use the V5 retro theme, but I checked the new banner out and it looks cool.
The only possible idea I got to add, is to maybe add a blue transparent layer over those calcs at the right?

Also, thanks for adding Myst in the banner too!

those look nice, but the reason the new icon is red and yellow right now is to make it stand out easily. see the attached image; people need to be able to scan across a page and easily distinguish new posts from non-new

Yeah that makes sense. Just thinking there might be a way to have them not clash as loudly, tho I guess that's kind of their purpose so idk :P
Edit: maybe green or pink from the background?

Yeah the News icon used to be blue but I felt it wasn't as easy to notice so I made it really bright and used different colors.

Also nice work on the banner and glad the search was finally replaced. :D
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Ofcourse, I've grown accustomed to the V5 theme, which is very dark. :P

Also, that's 50% opacity, so it could be reduced.

I like the new banner, though I'll miss Link being on there. :P

Also, the new search doesn't seem to be as effective as the old one. I can't find Daemons nor System Crash with it. (Although, I find Daemons when I search for System Crash) :P

Edit: Couldn't find MindF*ck either xD

Spoiler For IMPORTANT NEWS!:
Late last night, Quebec was invaded by a group calling themselves, "Omnimaga". Not much is known about these mysterious people except that they all carried calculators of some kind and they all seemed to converge on one house in particular. Experts estimate that the combined power of their fabled calculators is greater than all the worlds super computers put together. The group seems to be holding out in the home of a certain DJ_O, who the Omnimagians claim to be their founder. Such power has put the world at a standstill with everyone waiting to see what the Omnimagians will do...

Wait... This just in, the Omnimagians have sent the UN a list of demands that must be met or else the world will be "submitted to the wrath of Netham45's Lobster Army". Such demands include >9001 crates of peanuts, sacrificial blue lobsters, and a wide assortment of cherry flavored items. With such computing power stored in the hands of such people, we can only hope these demands are met.

In the wake of these events, we can only ask, Why? Why do these people make these demands, what caused them to gather, and what are their future plans...
