Hi. I have an opinion regarding the new banner and slogan for the EFF, and I'm sorry to say I don't like it. The overall feel seems too "Lucas", and the 'defiant in the shadow...' just comes off as 'Screw you, Mom and Dad!'.

I hate to complain like this as the EFF is one of my favorite places on the net. Maybe I'm just too resistant to change. My 40k army, after all, is Nurgle.


PS: I taste terrible to spiders, in case you-know-who gets any ideas about silencing dissent. :lol:

Awwwww :(

The spider is sad :(

You know what we could do, why don't we have a slogan contest. We can take everyons slogan, put up a poll and have everyone vote on it. The winner will have his/her slogan as the new official EF Slogan as well as there very own medal!

What do you guys think of that?

Oh and if you don't see the new banner, try refreshing the page. And you should be able to see all the text.

Let me know what you guys think of that.

Are you being retarded, that is the new banner. The old banner said "take your gaming to the edge" and it had a picture of a planet with a targeting reticle on it.

No, it just changed, I swear.

A second ago it was the original.

Also, this new one looks just horrible. It's so yellow it feels like my eyes are choking on lemon jawbreakers. It's just plain gaudy.

Well lets worry about the actual design of the banner for later. Right now, lets focus on a new slogan for the EF.

Well, does it really need to be changed? "Take your gaming to the Edge" has served us well so far. Why throw it overboard?

Sure, it's a bit cheesy. But, no single sentence would be capable of encompassing all the greatness of the EFF at once, anyway.

I vote for "take your gaming to the edge" It's neat and to the point.

McCragge, why do you hate us members with an 800x600 resolution so very much? Do we smell weird, or maybe have a funny accent? First we were subjected to the sidebar of doom, and now we have to put up with a huooge banner so we have to keep scrolling left and right just to read the posts. Any chance you could narrow the banner size so I don't wear out my arrow keys quite so fast?

As for the slogan, personally I prefer "take your wargaming to the edge". The problem with the current one is that if I saw just the name of this site and the slogan on Google then I could only guess that the site was about some sort of criminality in the east. With the old one you know instantly it's about wargaming and since this site is more homely towards house rules the whole 'take it to the edge' part seems quite apt to me.

Or maybe something like "the homeworld of inspired wargaming", which would make more sense if there was a planet in the background, such as this fine example. :wink:

If you refresh your browser, it should be fixed. I had forgotten that I had increased my resolution (and bough at a new bigger monitor) So when I made the banner, I took a screenshot of the frontpage and just made the banner to fit that. Not realizing it was larger then 800. Anyway all fixed now.

I like all the feedback and comments everyone. They have been great. I am still going to run a slogan contest that everyone can vote on. It will include the original slogan in the list of options. I will probably get that setup and running tomorrow. Check the frontpage for any updates on that.

Much better McCragge. Now that I've had a proper look at the banner, I like it. :)Image
