    Updates for w/e Jan. 23, 2010

    Post by Kyouri Kai on Sun 24 Jan 2010, 11:38 am

    Updates:
    This past week has been a wild ride through the graphics palette of annoyance, frustration, destruction, to finally turning it into the likes of the gfx designer. So thanks to the constructive thoughts, comments, and criticisms of Watari and Sasori, AD, as Watari stated, looks more alive. ** The font on the headers is Kenny Redman's '321impact'. If you would like to see the actual font, you can download it from dafonts.com.

    The site has been resubmitted for a follow-up review based upon the last review. We most likely won't resubmit for another review until after we've reached 100 members (again) and have a minimum of 25 active users a day.

    The chatbox has been relocated to its own page, with some criticism, but with more positive responses.

    The wibyia toolbar has been updated to include a pop-up games board, and will have a links menu (once they get the glitch worked out) to include the areas of the board that are currently only linked from the main page. This also means the bar on the forums page will be removed once all is working properly.

    A rotating banner, with homemade graphics, has been placed on both the forum index and the chat page, that currently only showcases the Super Bowl, Haiti Relief Fund, and AD Logo Shop. As things happen or times change, so too will the banners.

    Finally, the Anime / Manga sections have been remerged and placed directly on the forum index page instead of being embedded deep within the 'television/movies' and 'books & literature' sub-forums of the Entertainment section.

    What Didn't Get Done:
    Html pages to start a shop for individual members to show-off and sell their items.

    What 'should' be done by next update notice: no promises
    At least one member shop page
    Change of graphics for the postings
    Finalization of the colors in the coding
    New affiliate links graphics
    Anything else that happens to come up...

    Other things still on the agenda:
    Update AD Facebook Fan Page
    Update AD YouTube Page
    Advertising campaign
    Story time haven't forgotten, MZ Wink
    Posting up some stuff to get the Gallery of Arts kick-started
    And other stuff I can't think of off the top of my head

    Thanks much, guys!

    @ L ... the dragons actually come from the idea of wisdom in ancient cultures (oroborus), but instead of having them bite their tails, I opted to show them coming together. Their being black and white is to symbolize yin-yang. The lotus is also symbolic of purity and spontaneous generation and hence symbolizes divine birth. So the logo goes along with something I've been studying since before you were born, which is spelled out on the portal page (Collective Intelligence)... not your car seat covers. Wink As for the blue, that was a total mistake. The actual colors are red and black, not blue and black. I put a glossy layer over top and changed the layer style which changed the look of the whole banner; once it fell onto the blue, I loved it, so therefore it is blue. Razz However, I'm glad you approve.
