I don't think that it will be a problem. It seems to be a glorified banner. It looks good. I could definitely go with this theme.

Recent progress.
I am not sure how codeable that is...

It's codeable. I hope you don't plan on redoing the buttons, I liked how they looked. Give them a nice glowing effect for hover and it would be great.

Still need the body of the page though.

Edit: Added an example for the code, excluding the buttons. The difficult part about the buttons is how the corners overlap, you could either use overlapping transparent images or split them into left/right segments and have a tileable center image which would allow the buttons to be stretched. The downside is the corners wouldn't be linkable. That might take some thought.

Yes, I thought about the buttons.

I think the the most left and right sided buttons will be unique, the middle ones will be same-looking, to allow adding more buttons if needed.

/unique\ |same| |same| / unique\ STARCRAFT II /unique\ |same| |same| / unique\

Also, if to plan carefully, the banner is actually crop-able into pieces which fit together, allowing the page to be resized bigger or smaller without affecting the design.

More to come.

I'm back!
You made it to be repeatable on the sides well, didn't you? :p The one in the kit was repeatable vertical-only. Btw, yours definately looks better with the banner like that ;). I am now coding mine.

Post #105, and some previous editions of it, looks like something already.
However, the latest doesn't show any buttons anymore... whereas previously they were integrated.
That is, of course, by design?

Its looking great!

I just suggest the old buttons with the bar around it. If they need to extend that bar past the banner it wouldn't look to grand.

I should fade the main battle scene's border a little darker?

I have figured out only the most important links will go to the main navigation bar.

Sounds reasonable, doesn't it?


Sub menus, links, call them as you wish, will be placed onto a similar navigation "platform" seen in post #42.

Though, the "platform" needs much work, it's too bland at the moment.


Plus, with the current buttons, the coder, I guess AceHart, can play with the link paddings and divs and adjust how far the links are, and how they exactly fit there, without trouble(*).


(*) Dealing with sliced images, because the corners are at a 45 degree angle.

post 99 shows what I am talking about

currently, it looks like there is no fade to it at all, I liked how it was before, maybe not as extreme, but, well, it was still better IMO

Around the Starcraft II logo, in the most current one theres a border around the II on top, I disagree on darkening the edges though. But you should get rid of the border around the II, which is really only visible near the gameplay image and the top of the background. If that makes sense.

Done and done.

This should basically be the final version of the banner.


And I'm off for a vacation for a week, so I'll probably start to work on the body part after arriving back.

Given no-one else hasn't come up with something better.


P.S

Is the attachment limit changeable?

I am asking because the .pdf is quite large and I do not wish to use external sites.

Can someone change my attachment quota temporarily?

Send it to acehart imo.

Just paranoid about the design getting stolen.
How?

  • No one is chatting at the moment.
  • Varine Varine:
    They aren't cutting my responsibilities or interjecting in my management abilities or anything, it's just stupid shit that comes up. And they don't exactly have people lining up for my job, there's not that many people applying for the positions I hire
  • Varine Varine:
    Eh, whatever. Thanks for listening guys
  • jonas jonas:
    Sure :) Let us know how it ends
  • Varine Varine:
    All of these things will end happily, they're just stressful. And I still lack many good friends that I can go to, and the ones I can are preoccupied with similar things. Thus general chit chat, cuz for some reason TH and Ghan and Tom all actively keep it up.
  • Varine Varine:
    Just gotta keep Miss Mazie up through the week until her shock wears off and she realizes that she still has family all around her, and bossman will do whatever he's going to do and I'll respond appropriately when it happens. Thank you all for the support, I do very much appreciate everyone being here for me through the years

    Best of luck Varine!
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    I just gotten myself an offer to work in China. The pay quadruples my current one. Damn.... Not really ready to start a new life there in China.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I have heard that they pay pretty good to English teachers in China - you would be an expat
  • jonas jonas:
    Cool, what kind of job?
  • Accname Accname:
    I would be careful with jobs in China. They can be hit and miss depending on where in China you go. Places like hong kong / Shengzen / Beijing can be neat. Other places not so much.
  • Accname Accname:
    I would recommend searching for some first person experiences for the city you got the offer in. Especially now when the political situation in China is deteriorating.
  • jonas jonas:
    Accname, long time no see
  • jonas jonas:
    What have you been up to
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Hey Accname, welcome back.
  • Accname Accname:
    Not much. Working in the Renewable Energy Sector as an IT Consultant. Its okay, but I think I preferred working at the university. It was more relaxed and you met all kinds of crazy people there.
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    I gotten a teaching position for Biology in a college in Wuhan (yes, there)... I suppose it should be fine there (I hope). Many of my ex colleagues are teaching in China as well currently (none in Wuhan though)
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    And I signed the contract already. I guess there's no turning back....
  • jonas jonas:
    @Accname how many hours do you work? I heard in some sectors IT consultants rack up insane hours
  • jonas jonas:
    @vypur85 sounds nice, have fun : )
  • Accname Accname:
    I am supposed to work 40 hrs a week, but I can work more if I like and I will be paid for those hours (as long as I don't go too far, there are laws and company policies, etc)
  • Accname Accname:
    In practice its basically work as much as you like, as long as the job gets done in time.
  • jonas jonas:
    Haha, my job is like that as well... that usually means I have a few 70-80 hours weeks a year, and lots of 20 hours weeks...
  • jonas jonas:
    a few weeks ago, one of my friends basically said "jonas, I received an invitation to submit something to conference X but I'm too lazy to do it and also the conference isn't advanced enough for my high level of research*, why don't you write something? Oh by the way, the deadline is in two weeks. Enjoy!" so I got two 80 hour weeks out of that kind offer. (*of course he didn't say those parts, but it's a better story this way)
  • jonas jonas:
    now I'll have next week off to make up for overtime :p and I'll play some good old gothic 2
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Hope you are enjoying that gothic 2~
