Perhaps the 3 race symbols in the middle, in some sort of pyramid? :D

I've noticed everyone seems heavy on the blue and black. You'd be surprised how some purple/yellow accents would help. Aren't they the main colors of the SCII races?

The current one we have looks bleh.

I like Narwy's idea :rolleyes:

______

I mean Andrewgosu's idea.

What's with the width of that site? =O The res at this school comp is 1024x768 yet the screen is stretched =/...

The SCII logos were posted on Samwise's site way before SCII. But the zerg one is different.

It's probably because the Protoss and Terran logos are Faction/tribe insignias

Terran logo=Alpha squadron
Protoss logo=Akilae tribe

The stars are too dense in my opinion, but it looks awesome.

And are those the SCI logos? SCII has different ones you can see them on the main page when you click on each race:

Silly Rad, those are the Spiritual stones from Ocarina of Time! i am just saying how having them in a triangle reminds me of that ;)

The width of the image is 1280px, but the page's width will be a little bit more than 800px.

Andrew, I wasn't talking about yours :p. It was for BANANAMAN's post :p.

I'm not worried about yours, you are competent enough to make it to fit most resolutions :D.

Just bumping this thread.


Due to my current busy school period, I can only work on this projects at night or on weekends, so, I haven't got any mayor updates to show.


On a side note, where are the other brave ones challenging this design?

Pretty nice, gz! ;)

If my english wasnt that bad I could add some constructive criticism.

Btw. for me, the contrast between the creature on the right and the red planet in the background isnt strong enough.

If you'd like, I can make animated Flash buttons for your menubar unless a traditional mouseover graphic is all that's needed.

That'd be cool, but Acehart totally wouldn't approve. :p

Flash buttons would look even nicer, though I don't have the authority to judge whether to actually use them on site.
 
General chit-chat
Help Users
  • No one is chatting at the moment.
  • Varine Varine:
    I ordered like five blocks for 15 dollars. They're just little aluminum blocks with holes drilled into them
  • Varine Varine:
    They are pretty much disposable. I have shitty nozzles though, and I don't think these were designed for how hot I've run them
  • Varine Varine:
    I tried to extract it but the thing is pretty stuck. Idk what else I can use this for
  • Varine Varine:
    I'll throw it into my scrap stuff box, I'm sure can be used for something
  • Varine Varine:
    I have spare parts for like, everything BUT that block lol. Oh well, I'll print this shit next week I guess. Hopefully it fits
  • Varine Varine:
    I see that, despite your insistence to the contrary, we are becoming a recipe website
  • Varine Varine:
    Which is unique I guess.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Actually I was just playing with having some kind of mention of the food forum and recipes on the main page to test and see if it would engage some of those people to post something. It is just weird to get so much traffic and no engagement
  • The Helper The Helper:
    So what it really is me trying to implement some kind of better site navigation not change the whole theme of the site
  • Varine Varine:
    How can you tell the difference between real traffic and indexing or AI generation bots?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    The bots will show up as users online in the forum software but they do not show up in my stats tracking. I am sure there are bots in the stats but the way alot of the bots treat the site do not show up on the stats
  • Varine Varine:
    I want to build a filtration system for my 3d printer, and that shit is so much more complicated than I thought it would be
  • Varine Varine:
    Apparently ABS emits styrene particulates which can be like .2 micrometers, which idk if the VOC detectors I have can even catch that
  • Varine Varine:
    Anyway I need to get some of those sensors and two air pressure sensors installed before an after the filters, which I need to figure out how to calculate the necessary pressure for and I have yet to find anything that tells me how to actually do that, just the cfm ratings
  • Varine Varine:
    And then I have to set up an arduino board to read those sensors, which I also don't know very much about but I have a whole bunch of crash course things for that
  • Varine Varine:
    These sensors are also a lot more than I thought they would be. Like 5 to 10 each, idk why but I assumed they would be like 2 dollars
  • Varine Varine:
    Another issue I'm learning is that a lot of the air quality sensors don't work at very high ambient temperatures. I'm planning on heating this enclosure to like 60C or so, and that's the upper limit of their functionality
  • Varine Varine:
    Although I don't know if I need to actually actively heat it or just let the plate and hotend bring the ambient temp to whatever it will, but even then I need to figure out an exfiltration for hot air. I think I kind of know what to do but it's still fucking confusing
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Maybe you could find some of that information from AC tech - like how they detect freon and such
  • Varine Varine:
    That's mostly what I've been looking at
  • Varine Varine:
    I don't think I'm dealing with quite the same pressures though, at the very least its a significantly smaller system. For the time being I'm just going to put together a quick scrubby box though and hope it works good enough to not make my house toxic
  • Varine Varine:
    I mean I don't use this enough to pose any significant danger I don't think, but I would still rather not be throwing styrene all over the air
