Stuff for this metadynasty

We need to change the color scheme, create a banner, and create an Imperial Seal.

Just thought I’d remind everyone.

How’s this for a header?

Awesome!

That’s pretty cool, how’d you make it?

Oze:

12-19-2008 17:08:35 UTC

PowerPoint Autoshapes, would you believe.

never heard of that, I may have to investigate it. I’m into making banners and such.

Oze:

12-19-2008 17:14:14 UTC

Is this dynasty ‘The Fourth Metadynasty’ or ‘The First Metadynasty of Rodlen’?

Syl:

12-19-2008 17:24:56 UTC

From reading over all of this stuff, I think that it’s just another mess of different interpretations, but from what I see it as, it’s “The First Metadynasty of Rodlen”.

Syl:

12-19-2008 18:15:26 UTC


I tried my hand at making one. I’m pretty happy, all things considered.

oops… Sorry, double post. Stupid internet messing up.

arthexis:

12-19-2008 18:19:05 UTC

Just one opinion: Lets not make the header tooooo big, can we please?

arthexis:

12-19-2008 18:20:33 UTC

Oh, and I have a question for someone more experienced in the blog: Could we make a different style of post that is user selectable, so that we can distinguish amongst faction proposals and other stuff?

Klisz:

12-19-2008 19:13:29 UTC

We need a new imperial seal.

Klisz:

12-19-2008 19:20:59 UTC

I made an imperial seal.

spikebrennan:

For the benefit of those of us who access the site through iPhones and such, make the top banner as small a file and as narrow as practicable.

Oze:

12-19-2008 19:32:35 UTC

So which banner do you prefer? Oze’s or Syl’s?

Voting is now open.

Klisz:

12-19-2008 19:41:38 UTC

I like Syl’s.

Darknight:

12-19-2008 20:19:01 UTC

i like syls cause then we don’t have to get up in arms on this metadynasty’s number lol. and DC epic seal man

Klisz:

12-19-2008 20:22:03 UTC

Thank you, Darknight.

arthexis:

12-19-2008 20:26:34 UTC

I’d like Syls, but we will have to take the background color into account. Maybe we should make it white and modify the banner so that it looks like split up or broken?

Oze:

12-19-2008 20:27:18 UTC

Perhaps fading out around the edges?

Klisz:

12-19-2008 20:28:20 UTC

I think it’s supposed to stand out against the background.

Klisz:

12-19-2008 20:29:41 UTC

Syl says she’ll make a new version with faded edges.

teucer:

12-19-2008 20:35:46 UTC

I like Oze’s because it offers a different visual style for each of the three.

But it needs to be shrunk.

Syl:

12-19-2008 20:43:36 UTC

Here’s my version with faded edges.

Darknight:

12-19-2008 20:45:17 UTC

Cool. Needs to be smaller of course but i like it

Syl:

12-19-2008 20:49:30 UTC

Better? I’m enjoying messing around in GIMP. Heh.

eljefe:

12-19-2008 20:55:54 UTC

Nice effort Syl, but Oze’s is the one to go with. It captures the early flavor of each faction perfectly.

teucer:

12-19-2008 21:04:03 UTC

Well, maybe.

I mean we don’t even know what the flavor of BLO will be yet, other than that it will likely include snowboards, injuries, and Mount Doom.

arthexis:

12-19-2008 21:07:19 UTC

What? BLO sounds full of flavor already!

Klisz:

12-19-2008 22:39:36 UTC

BLO is about randomness.

I will become a Pufferfish on Monday. I did the wrong thing becoming a Gnomiard.

Rodlen:

12-19-2008 22:51:36 UTC

The seal works well.  Oze’s header is great, but needs to be smaller.

Klisz:

12-19-2008 22:54:05 UTC

Why exactly do you think Oze’s is better than Syl’s?

Rodlen:

12-19-2008 22:56:17 UTC

As said, it has more of the flavour of each faction.  Maybe the text of Oze’s on the background of Syl’s would work best.

Klisz:

12-19-2008 22:58:33 UTC

I talked to Syl. She agrees.

Do you want the Micese flag from Oze’s to be on the finished banner?

Rodlen:

12-19-2008 23:04:27 UTC

Sure.

arthexis:

12-19-2008 23:27:15 UTC

And make the letter of BLO more random looking (and dangerous too maybe?)

Syl:

12-19-2008 23:41:33 UTC

I can’t really do that, and currently, I need Oze’s text on a transparent background to put it on the background. >_< I’ve been trying to get the text off… It doesn’t work so well.

Syl:

12-19-2008 23:53:00 UTC

Background and fading the edges is done, just needing text. ^_^ Now to make Christmas presents while I wait

Klisz:

12-20-2008 01:31:22 UTC

Rodlen, you can’t edit comments!

Rodlen plans to make a fourth faction called EEB, after he repeals the G-Man rule! I posted about this in an actual post, but Rodlen edited it and eventually deleted it!

Klisz:

12-20-2008 02:16:43 UTC

Um, forget that last comment.

Klisz:

12-20-2008 02:45:56 UTC

Color scheme anyone?

Oze:

12-20-2008 08:23:03 UTC

Syl, which text? The BLO one?

Oze:

12-20-2008 10:49:20 UTC

Is this what you need?

arthexis:

12-20-2008 15:58:21 UTC

Color Schema: Full of colors on a white background :D

Klisz:

12-20-2008 17:28:46 UTC

Oze: Your provided text was good, but we need the flag too.

Klisz:

12-20-2008 17:30:42 UTC

arthexis: I think that’s good. We should see what Rodlen thinks.

Rodlen:

12-20-2008 17:52:03 UTC

Looks good to me.

Oze:

12-20-2008 18:21:17 UTC

Another whopping great piccy to annoy users of mobile devices, flag included:

Klisz:

12-20-2008 18:36:15 UTC

Great. Now I just need to get Syl on here.

Syl:

12-20-2008 21:07:26 UTC


Here it is! This time I remembered to save a version with just the background, and an un-shrunk version in case of later edits being needed.

Rodlen:

12-20-2008 21:33:08 UTC

Good.

Sgeo:

12-21-2008 01:55:25 UTC

Thing is, it’s not too easy to see BloGno (go MIC!) and you won’t see the Gno mountains unless you know they’re there..

Klisz:

12-21-2008 03:33:36 UTC

Yeah, but the Gno Mountains don’t capture the flavor of Gno at all. Gno has nothing to do with mountains.

arthexis:

12-21-2008 08:11:03 UTC

For that matter, BLO has nothing to do with Blue either.

Oze:

12-21-2008 08:50:05 UTC

I intended the ‘‘mountains’’ to be grass. Ah well.  Do what you like, I say.

Yoda:

12-21-2008 15:01:31 UTC

Arthexis: I suppose the blue could be the cold, since we are snowboarding down Mount Doom.

arthexis:

12-21-2008 17:58:14 UTC

Oh, ok then. Well, anyways we should put this stuff together seeing that most of us agree with this. I’d do it myself, but have no idea how.

Rodlen:

12-22-2008 01:09:04 UTC

We could use the First Metadynasty of Rodlen text, but now we have a picture up.

Klisz:

12-22-2008 15:19:06 UTC

Awesome!
