To Do List

The following things still need to be done for this dynasty:

- change the color scheme
- change the header logo
- change the veto icon (this still hasn’t been changed since PB’s dynasty)
- finish the history page for bucky’s dynasty

I have already archived the ruleset then updated it to reflect the new dynasty.

What kind of colour scheme would you like?

Rodlen:

11-16-2008 16:33:12 UTC

But the veto icon may be the murder weapon!!!

Yoda:

11-16-2008 17:00:34 UTC

Oze: The color scheme doesn’t really matter much.  Just something different.

Rodlen: Was he murdered or was it just an accident?

Bucky:

*Add the plot summary page to the sidebar

Yoda:

11-16-2008 20:03:23 UTC

Sorry, I must have forgotten to do that when enacting the proposal.  It’s up now.

Gnauga:

If I may suggest a color scheme? Why not try tan and pale colors. Kinda like parchment, or faded paper.

Yoda:

11-16-2008 21:37:46 UTC

Sounds good.  Can someone do that please.  I’m not very skilled at changing colors.

Yoda:

11-17-2008 17:11:56 UTC

Ok, picture definitely needs to be smaller…

Oze:

11-17-2008 17:15:53 UTC

I put up a (smaller) logo for now. Anyone is free to change it if they’ve got a better one.

I don’t have time to change the colour scheme right now though.

spikebrennan:

Any way to make the logo more banner-shaped and smaller still (to speed up load times for those of us who access the game via a remote device)

Yoda:

11-17-2008 20:46:36 UTC

I definitely agree, but like I said I’m not very good at that kind of stuff.

Oze:

11-17-2008 21:43:17 UTC

I could ask my friend to work on one - He’s good with logos.

Oze:

Yoda:

0.o I like.

Yoda:

11-17-2008 21:49:44 UTC

Well, cross that one off.

Yoda:

11-18-2008 20:18:03 UTC

Can someone please work on the color scheme?

Yoda:

11-19-2008 07:26:24 UTC

Ok, how about free PP for anyone who completes one of the above tasks?

Gnauga:

11-20-2008 00:16:22 UTC

A tiled paper-like background would be nice as well.

Rodlen:

11-20-2008 00:16:22 UTC

Ugh, this sucks.  But it is a start.

Rodlen:

11-20-2008 00:17:19 UTC

Or, in other words, I have made a semi-attempt.

Rodlen:

11-20-2008 00:26:33 UTC

In addition to that, I have added the two most important proposals to Bucky’s dynastic history page.

arthexis:

11-20-2008 01:51:38 UTC

Hate the colors.

Rodlen:

11-20-2008 01:54:44 UTC

I repeat, ugh, this sucks.  But it is a start.

Yoda:

11-20-2008 14:55:52 UTC

I agree that it needs work, but I gave you a PP for your troubles anyway.

Yoda:

11-21-2008 02:54:01 UTC

Thoughts on the new color scheme?

arthexis:

11-21-2008 07:53:48 UTC

I like it but.. perhaps we could try dark brown links instead of grey? Or anything else instead of grey for that matter. The background color is fine.

Yoda:

11-21-2008 15:04:04 UTC

Can you do that then?  I don’t even remember how I did what I did.

Oze:

11-21-2008 16:07:52 UTC

Just look through the Stylesheet and replace the Hex Codes for the things you want to change. I’d do it if I had time…

Yoda:

11-21-2008 16:59:04 UTC

Yah, I know that much.  It’s just trying to figure out which code is for what on the actual page.

Yoda:

11-21-2008 17:59:18 UTC

Does anyone have a veto icon?

Gnauga:

11-22-2008 00:41:59 UTC

I made a weird quill-veto icon. yoda1vetohc1.gif

20x20 icons tend to be a little blurry.

Yoda:

11-22-2008 00:57:43 UTC

I like it.  Does anyone know how to make it the veto icon?

Gnauga:

11-22-2008 01:22:55 UTC

I suppose you would upload the image, find all instances of seal.gif and replace them with the new icon.

Yoda:

11-22-2008 01:26:24 UTC

Yah, but I have no clue how or where to go to do that.

Yoda:

11-22-2008 02:47:07 UTC

veto Yay, it worked.

Yoda:

11-22-2008 02:47:22 UTC

Oops, maybe not…

Gnauga:

11-22-2008 02:53:44 UTC

Where’s a web design techie when you need one?

Yoda:

11-22-2008 02:55:12 UTC

Kevan?  75th Trombone?  Somebody???

Oze:

11-22-2008 11:49:10 UTC

In the Stylesheet, if you replace Seal.gif, it will only appear in that little square beside Vetoed Proposals.

To make an image the actual ‘Veto icon’ smiley, I believe one needs FTP access.

Yoda:

11-22-2008 15:23:51 UTC

Kevan said that if I email him the icon, he can upload it.

Gnauga, can you post the link to the picture so I can email it to Kevan?

Gnauga:

11-22-2008 15:49:53 UTC

‘http://img511.imageshack.us/img511/9427/yoda1vetohc1.gif’ minus the quotation marks, of course.

Yoda:

11-22-2008 16:10:21 UTC

Ok, I have emailed it to him, so it should be up hopefully sometime today.

Yoda:

11-22-2008 16:10:42 UTC

Today being within the next 24 hours.

Oze:

11-22-2008 17:04:07 UTC

veto It works!

Darknight:

11-22-2008 21:57:33 UTC

no it hasn’t yet lol. give kev time.

Rodlen:

11-22-2008 22:03:56 UTC

Actually, it does work.

Darknight:

11-22-2008 22:05:20 UTC

my bad lol. stuck page

Yoda:

11-22-2008 22:52:49 UTC

Ok, now if someone would fix the mess I made of the color scheme, that should be everything.

Yoda:

11-24-2008 21:22:10 UTC

Free PP for whoever can make the white dotted line between posts and the edit button black and maybe tweak the hyperlink colors (arthexis suggested a dark brown).

Rodlen:

11-25-2008 02:16:31 UTC

Dotted line is now black, thanks to me.

Rodlen:

11-25-2008 02:18:39 UTC

Brown attempted.

Darknight:

11-25-2008 02:19:22 UTC

edit link needs to be darker

Rodlen:

11-25-2008 02:22:27 UTC

Done.
