Greatest font ever.

The Roland/Twisted nerd fight makes me lol. I read and post on this site daily with a supposedly lowly and antiquated blackberry playbook and have ZERO problems doing or seeing anything. Hell even my lowly and antiquated blackberry torch handles the regular site with no problems (though I use the tapa just because it's a little quicker to load and a little easier to read.

If my lowly and antiquated canadian hardware can handle this site, then the mighty apple and android should be able to eat it for breakfast, no?

Would love a touch up and maybe incorporate the ability to "thank/like" or "groan/dislike" posts.

Amen to this. We need a way for people to easily identify who the hella smart and hella stoooopid people are.

On a semi-related note, is Seahawks.net ever going back to being more than a forum? Have columns/news/interviews/podcasts.. etc

I floated doing a .NET podcast like 1-2 years ago, very few expressed any interest in doing one with me; but plenty of people seem to want one.

For those that weren't around for the "good ol' days" (or, like Radish, are too old to remember them clearly :P), I present the following.

Dear Lord, that had a hideous look to it ~12-13 years ago.

I would be down for minor updates and tweeks, but nothing too radical as this place is already above and beyond many other fan forums out there.

Not sure who would be making an updated logo, but if you're using photoshop I have a brush i can send you that stamps the feather shape.

Hey HawknBalls, I really like this direction but is it me or does the lettering remind you of the new Vikings lettering..... just a thought..;)


hah. now that you mention it I totally see it. It's a font I got off of blambot.com, I wonder if that's what they are using?

I think .net is the absolute best site of it's kind on the WWW anywhere. IMO- That's why so many "other teams" come to visit and troll. As to re-design, I think the "location" field in the initial sign-up process should be a "mandatory" field. I say this because I hate trollers that come here to post their BS and many seem to want nothing more than to stir up our fan base and piss us all off. I wouldn't mind if some of the straight lines on the site looked like the stripe that runs down the Seahawks legs, however the base colors all seem fine to me. Easy to read is a plus for us old guys.

I love it the way it is. Though I like the idea that some people have mentioned of making some small aesthetic changes to match the new uniforms.

I wouldn't change the way it functions but I'd like to request a new header please it looks 6 years old, we have a new team going in a direction everyone seems excited about so a grittier header to reflect that I would be happy to see (the eye looks menacing the way it is however) :D

This is funny, every time I read "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" I imagine an old man, why not think like RW & say "its great but lets make it greater". I don't mean to offend anyone by the way.

The 'Work Mode' theme also needs to disable signatures (aka turtle-humping papakis).

I love the current colors and design. that being said, this is a Seahawk fan site. The Seahawks changed colors maybe we should reflect that.

Great input everyone, and we clearly hear that if we make changes, we'll keep it minimal. Thanks Aros for getting this rolling

I think a slight redesign is in order. Something to freshen up the place a bit. I think a slightly darker background would be cool. Compare and contrast the color of the main forum as opposed to actual threads. I think the main forum background color would work just fine for threads. I don't really see a need for incorporating grey into the site. While it is a part of the color scheme now, it's not prominent. And grey on the whole isn't too flattering graphically. Mainly just drabs everything up. And as for the main header, I call for less green. And no the gunmetal or silver used in the mock up. Whoever called that 1997 was dead on. Gave me flashbacks to earlier versions of the site. Lol.

I'm old (compared to most here) and I have no issue with change. I just don't see the need for it currently, except for the possible tweeks here 'n there. But if the powers that be decide they want to change it, I just hope it better, rather than most places the 'enhance' the site only to make it really crappy.

Thankfully, Todd's history here is such that changes usually mean good things.

I really like the way the site looks and works, but I there are always improvements that can be made. These require real knit-picking, by the way.

1- Crisp-up the Seahawks.Net banner logo, particularly in the text. It could use a bit more of an anti-aliased look.

2- Maybe up the max number of quotes within quotes. It can sometimes be kind of a hassle replying in-line, then getting rejected for having too many quotes within quotes.

3- Charge a fee for 49er fans

4- In addition to the crazy gameday devoted forum (where you end up with 10,000 separate threads with 0-2 replies), how about one (just one) official gameday thread in the main forum for games. Maybe it's just me, but I enjoy a long multi-page reactionary single thread for games.

-
In any case... as long time devotee, I was just trying to dig for anything I could think of here.

Well I love everyone's insight. It is awesome and appreciated. I will present some new logos to Mark and co....Don't expect a reinvention of the wheel here...Just some nip and tucks that put this girl into the 21st Century reflecting the team's latest aesthetic...

That's EXACTLY what the chat forum is on gameday. :th2thumbs:
