Quote from: Spacethingy on January 14, 2016, 12:01:21 AMAny chance of getting the blog/forum integration back? That looked nice, especially as the front page advertises the community.
Quote from: Spacethingy on January 14, 2016, 12:01:21 AMThe old pak page with its animated tiles was pretty; kind of a shame it's gone, although the new page looks good too.
Quote from: Spacethingy on January 14, 2016, 12:01:21 AMThe design of the front page looks a bit broken. The box under the "Transport Simulator" header looks like a misplaced popup window, especially as it's not aligned with either the background picture or the "check paks" button next to it. Also, because the image is covered, it leaves the main page feeling a little devoid of actual Simutrans imagery and content. (I have a feeling that this is more pronounced on narrow mobile devices, the screenshots look somewhat better that what I get)
Quote from: sdog on January 14, 2016, 12:20:03 AMHowever, Simutrans is not a registered brand, there is nothing other than politeness that keeps people from doing what we ask them not to. I think that really needs to be reflected in the wording. I.e, when we have to rely on others being polite and not abusing our logo, we also have to be polite requesting that.
Quote from: sdog on January 14, 2016, 12:20:03 AMIn the header of the brand page it is referred to the Artistic License 2.0 (AL2) and stated that it will be explained in the following what is permitted. However, what follows are non-binding desin rules, not binding license rules. Better just leave the license as is. It is very rarely if ever a good idea to summarise license texts in your own words.
Quote from: sdog on January 14, 2016, 12:20:03 AMWho exactly holds the (so-called) intellectual property of the logo artwork? I think it is you alone? Perhaps you could consider cross-licensing it also under a fitting CC license, as (a) AL2 is not very well known, (b) a software license not that well suited for artwork. Both make it more difficult to understand what is allowed and what not.
Quote from: sdog on January 14, 2016, 12:20:03 AMHowever, now that the logo is so prominent, could you please try your skills at the moon again? (it as not the earth-shine or angle, but that a terminator line looks entirely different.)
Quote from: Yona-TYT on January 14, 2016, 01:17:01 AMI feel a bit of nostalgic for the previous page .

QuoteI forgot to say that if you ommit the language code the site will automatically detect the user preferred language to display. Works on all pages and this is the preferred way to link to the site so the user will get the best language. ex.: http://www.simutrans.com/download
Quote from: sdog on January 15, 2016, 02:28:57 AMOn my smartphone (android, nexus 5, chrome) the menu is always rolled out and blocks the page. I suppose it only ought to open when 'menu' on the top right is tapped?
Quote from: sdog on January 15, 2016, 02:28:57 AMThat is very useful indeed, I didn't know it and haven't tried to leave out something that is in the middle of an url. Good to know.
Quote from: prissi on January 14, 2016, 09:30:02 PMThe new design is quite nice. However, at least on my monitor the links are too bright and can be barely seen on the bright background. May I suggest to use the same shade of blue as for the titles?
Quote from: Ves on January 21, 2016, 01:27:04 PMall the four links points to the wiki
Quote from: Ves on January 21, 2016, 01:27:04 PMWhat about a "forum" button next to "help" in the upper menu which links directly to the main forum?
Quote from: An_dz on January 21, 2016, 03:57:25 PMThe topbar is full, and there's a link on the footer and many around the site.
