What this site should add

Is this the right place???

What this site should add is a whole LOW POLY sections for modeling…Maybe a whole Section having to deal with textures. Possibly a Thank you system for “noobs” to know how is the most helpful…Maybe a smartness thing under everyone’s name…Like for every misted spell word you loose a point…

I guess the reason im posting this is because I think we all get sick at looking at the same things over and over…Same Layout…the Banner changes maybe once ever 2months?..It needs to be More…Appealing…

Sorry if this pisses any Mods.or admins off…and any members…

That’s a nice suggestion. I would second that to any moderator.

what I think would be awesome is a darker base color then the white that blinds us to so many photos. It’s not that I want BA to look like more CGtalk, but the dark background color really is helpful for seeing content. anybody else agree?

About a user thanking, as long as it is just that, and not anything at all “rank” looking, it could be useful. But as they said over at Ubuntuforms FAQ, there are some people that have low post counts that can run circles around other people in knowledge, skill, and advice.

oh and LGB, I don’t think most people come here to see an appealing web form, but rather come to get help, or maybe see what people have made with blender recently. the ones that come here for there social life is in the minority, yeah that means you LGB, and kbot, but I guess I kinda fall into that mold too… man, I should get a girlfriend…

I think we should bring back the member list. I know why it was taken off, but maybe we could have it only visible when we’re logged in, so people don’t try to use it like they did. Idk, just been sitting in the back of my mind for some time. And yes, a darker color would be nice.

What was the Members list? And why did i get taken down?
AK i agree with you too…Yeah i know it shouldn’t be all decorated or anything…But what i ment was it should be darker like you said…Maybe have like a Blue background and a Orange header thing(where it says forums ect ect)…

KB…I sent a message to one of the admins but i never got it back…I know they are busy

The members list was a list of all the members, most forums have one. Here are the threads that explain why: http://blenderartists.org/forum/showthread.php?t=129538, http://blenderartists.org/forum/showthread.php?t=129420

Hey lil’g I mean LGB - am I KB ?

Thanks B4J…I remember when that happened

yes KB…or somtimes ill type Kboy…then replace the y with a T…but lets get back on TOPIC =P

this site should regularly update the ancient artwork that gets displayed on the front page (reserved for BWC now).

Yeah That would be nice!..I got sick of looking at “poor Pluto” for like 3months…Not saying it wasnt good cuz it was AMAZING!..But yeah…I think they should do like two week Changes…

How about a more organized resources section. Some of the tutorials, plugins, etc are Blender version blah-blah specific. Some of them are already useless for recent Blender users.

Great Idea…Yeah…There should be a gallery for like the best games…Best 2d art…ect…But then it might get over crowded with topics

Cool. I may make my avator KB Productions or something. Na just jokin’

The members list can be accessed. Once you go to the ignore/buddy list, you can see a full list of members.

Nope, 404 error because it doesn’t exist any more.

Oh well. I never tried anyway.

What it should have is a ‘delete post’, ‘delete thread’ and ‘move thread’ function.

Mods and admins do that. :wink: Just ask them if you need it.

Oh. Well, you learn something new everyday.

I just found this in our very own wiki.

If it helps the blender UI what about the blender form? I noticed that Blender.org has taken this to heart and uses a grey background. okay, so it’s a little darker but still.
Who else thinks a more natural grey background here would help? or am I the only one?

Here you can compare the same, black and white image (a crop from Elephants Dream) surrounded by a white or black area. The white frame makes the dark image look bad, you have some problems seeing the details in the jacket shadows, while the black frame gives you a better representation of details. If the image would be of lighter style, the reverse would be true. So for a better background, we should use the neutral grey. So yes, the default theme in Blender is not exactly a good default, it is too light. You can create your own theme or maybe try one from K-Rich theme repository
