Welcome to the new CC Website and Forums!

Postby NeoJabez » August 28th, 2016, 6:03 pm

Welcome members and guests! This new site styling and rebranding has been over a year in development, and it's finally here!

The leadership would like to heartily thank Stargater59 (Web Development, Coding, CSS Styling, and lots more) and Oxygencube (Superb Graphics and Element Design, Rebranding & Logotyping) for all the work they've done.

Please enjoy and be sure to send any bugs or suggestions or anything else to webmaster@ccgaming.com or alternatively start a thread in the appropriate forum and let us know what you found!

<Views on several browsers>

While I can appreciate the amount of coding that went into the update... not going to lie... not my favorite style update.

The dark theme vs white space clashes a bit and the lack of distinctive boundaries in some places is a little off-putting.

Like... stop-visiting-the-forums kind of off-putting. (which I'm sure most of CC would enjoy Caboose not visiting the forums)

Are you going to update the colors to leadership and members? These colors and the new look do not contrast well at all.

The front page looks amazing on a 21:9 monitor, so bravo on that piece of coding. ^__^

Yeah, we'll be getting together and tweaking this stuff as we progress.

I would suggest a staff section thread with some actual color suggestions, and we can discuss it at the meeting Saturday.

I'll be webmastering as of now, but I'm not going to make massive changes of any kind without plenty of input and agreement.

Also, I'll be busy making changes that can be made as they come in, so anyone else that finds bugs you report here, I will try and let you know when they are fixed.

Caboose, that graphic should now take you to our site, and not the dev site.

The favicons D:

Otherwise, yay! Looks great (though I agree the forum css needs to be tweaked a bit, dunno what exactly though)

Overall it looks fantastic!

Thank you so much for the design and coding, Oxy and Gater, and for all you did! The fact that you guys pulled this off WITH full time careers is impressive and we are so grateful for it! Even if you guys weren't working full time it would be impressive, but goodness, you guys are awesome.

As far as tweaking colors and what-not, that's something I would assume we will all have to discuss to see what everyone else wants. We should get with oxy and Neo and see what they think (just to get some designer's opinions) and go from there. Once we get an idea of what WOULD look good (maybe we can get a few different options?) we can have a vote and make it happen?

I don't know if that's the way it should be done, but that's what I would think. (I don't want to step on anyone's toes).

I figured this is what was going on, with the main page being down and all.

Just a couple of quick notes: Our "About" page lists off our leaders, tech team, etc. However, those that don't have profile images have a dummy image of our now old logo.

Also, something about the red used here on the forums isn't sitting right. It feels just a touch too bright.

Although it might have something to do with me using this Chrome theme.

Hudbus, I've got that added to the list of post-launch fixes, thank you for listing it here.
