Socoder -> On Topic -> Socoder Logo

With the whole New Theme thing gradually Coming Soon, it's probably about time we settled on a single nice neat logo.

So....

Bring 'em on!!

A logo shouldn't be dependant on special effects, even though it can overall benefit from them. Optimally, a logo should be displayable in monochrome and people should still know that it's SoCoder. But nowadays it's hard to make a distinct logo.

Oh, and I didn't think that there was a new theme coming up, since there were so few suggestions and no unanimous agreement last time. What theme are we switching to?

I like the look of Instincts, other than the weird Microscope-esque letter d!!

Actual theme work hasn't started yet, but plenty of core work's being done behind the scenes, whenever I get a chance.
You'll just have to be patient!

It's nice, but it's professional looking, and I don't think it quite represents our community.

I think a professional look is what this site needs.

This site isn't professional.

This is the "Not very professional, bobbing around, having a bit of a laugh, and enjoying the fun of making games" world of coding.

GameDev, and those sort are the professional world of coding.

Stealth: you come up with really nice graphics and designs, it'd be nice if you actually made a SoCoder theme which used them!

At the very least if your interested in redesigning SoCoder then could you come up with a mock (and working) SoCoder site that we could look at (the actual content doesn't need to be correct, it can just be a working prototype).

With an actual, working new SoCoder theme/site it'd be easier to push it onto Jay.

He's already made a theme, but it was too 'advanced' for Jay to bother implementing it.

No, that was the sillyness of the script thing.
The theme itself is simple to implement when you leave behind the script stuff. It's just a batch of images.

As a logo, in part of a singled out "pro" theme, it'd do well.. But I'm looking for an all-round logo, that would look good for all the themes.. May it be a shitty theme, or a really good one.

What we need is a symbol. I know that the image below in itself isn't ultra-awesome, but it's a symbol; one which can be adapted to five megazillion different themes (I am, of course, talking about the semi-circle 'S').



|edit| Note that I'm not saying that we necessarily should use this exact symbol, just something. |edit|

The blueprint theme could have the half-circles be protractors XD

I was already wanting to do that. Jay told me just a design is all he wanted so I stopped there. This site could use a new XHTML + CSS foundation, but Jay doesn't want me to do that part of the system.

I've tried many times coding a theme using the theme system we have now (see this design). It's just really difficult to do. I spent 5+ hours working on the design just trying to manipulate the CSS to do what I want. I ended up ditching the effort in frustration.

A new site foundation would be great (I think Jay has one in the works), and I would be willing to code one for my new theme I suggested, but Jay has told me it's not needed/desired.

But that's partly my point, it didn't get built. Why not build an example site anyway and then show it off. Jay is very much in favour of a community driven forum, so if we can get lots of support behind it then we can get him to use it.

I'll try and find some time to do that.

I love Stealths design. Simple, professional and it would encourage me to want to read the content.

Ugly but fun:



Maybe without additional letters, but animated, as a neon sign, showing one letter at the time, then flashing all twice

Hmm... I don't really like the font there, but the neon-blue colour is quite nice... but yeah, I'm not sure about the font. The 'S' seems a really weird shape, just to allow them to slot together.
