Updating the Site Banner
« on: February 10, 2013, 11:19:59 pm »
it seemed about time to update the old banner again, seeing as how the pictures and screenshots are a bit out of date. changing around the style completely wouldn't go well with the current theme, though. post any suggestions for screenshots you'd like to see up there! also, should "The Coders of Tomorrow - Since 2001" be changed to a different font? post suggestions for that as well!

EDIT: wip version below. tell me what to change!

EDIT2: ok, i think it's done.

as already posted in irc, for the calcs on the right, add a 84pcse in about the size of the 83, rotated a bit more clockwards and is over the 83 and under the nspire.
that are some details :P
leave reuben.
EDIT: and also leave 'THE CODERS OF TOMORROW <netham> since 2001'

Should add some newer games like Portal Prelude and such. Maybe some Prizm, Nspire, etc.

Here are some of the files used in the previous banner attached below. A few suggestions:

1) There's no way you can get rid of the lobster, TI-Boy SE and the TI-83 Plus
2) It might be wise to get rid of the TI-Nspire and the Voyage 200. A TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition, a TI-Nspire CX running gpSP-Nspire and a PRIZM running cgDOOM might be a good idea.
3)Although Super Star Hero is discontinued, it seems that the black face with red eyes kinda fits well so it can almost act as second "mascot" in the banner I guess :P
4) Try to keep the Zelda DLQ pic, along with Reuben and a few other old classics in there. Kraid from Metroid II

Also please keep the 2010 banner available for the v5 Lite skin so people can still use it. Only add the new banner on the v5 theme.

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

do NOT forget to add micro-text "THE GAME" in some corner.
or "YOU LOST" or something like that.

Definitely add a Prizm and a CX.

Also Derpy Hooves as an easter egg.

Let's keep ponies out of the banner please. We should focus on the main site themes rather than spam.

Also as replacement for the TI-Nspire:



I didn't use gpSP finally because it isn't full screen and looked like crap.

As for the game you could possibly use a game screenshot where it includes "the game" somewhere or just randomly stick small text somewhere that isn't that visible, using an hard to read color, like the board stats had for a while.

gpSP can be fullscreen, you have to adjust the scaling in the options or something (top option iirc). The CX and 84CSE definitely need to go in the banner, and of course a lobster.

Some people need a high five in the face... with a chair.
