Nah, Admin is just having a hard time making it look good all together.
He probably also doesn't have much time for it right now, since he's fixing all the bugs that people have found with the redesign.

Hey Guys,

So I'm working on another redesign in order to address the problems with the current design, and I've found a great place to put the group photo: on the Hosting / info page.

I know that we were originally talking about having this on the home page, so I want to get permission from everyone involved to put it there. Please let me know if you're okay or not okay with this plan.

Here's a screen shot of what it will probably look like:

Thanks!

I'm fine with my part being used off the front page.

I really like how compact the current top bar is though, is there no way that can be kept? e.g. by having a leaderboard ad beneath the spotlight area or something, rather than at the very top.

This redesigned top bar works really well - it will most likely stay. However, you'll be glad to know that the drop-downs are returning.

I think that's a great plan and also really like the way it turned out.

I feel like most poeple who are visiting the front page are people who are coming here as a return visitor, somebody who is either already a creator or is here to read specific content.Having this image on the hosting information page is nice because it's like, if somebody's thinking about putting their comic here, they go see that page and it seems inviting, like they can picture their own characters standing among the crowd.

I'm fine with this! :mrgreen:

Slightly miffed with my characters being flipped horizontally since they are purposefully asymmetrical design-wise but I realise that group images are hard to put together so I'll live. :P

I'm cool with this. A bit interesting that the gang is tilted a bit, but not too huge.

I gotta admit I feel silly for bringing this up, but since nobody else is; I notice several characters are absent from the group photo. Is there by chance any reasoning/criteria for who got axed and who didn't?
It's kinda disheartening seeing my characters cut from it after all these months. I was super excited to take part in that.
(Although for all I know it could still be a WIP or something, but it doesn't look like it.)

Interested in seeing further revamping to the site itself, though.

That's just the way it turned out, trying to fit as many characters in as possible. Perhaps down the road we'll switch it up with another version with a new mix of characters.

That's be cool; I unfortunately didn't get mine done in time, but if we did another one in the future, I'd be game to try again.

No need to feel stupid. The final image isn't up on the site and unless you've read every post in the thread, you wouldn't know that submissions closed a while ago xP The post saying so is on page 5, not exactly a noticeable spot. I'll go edit the first post to make it clear that submissions are closed.

The image has been put together but the page that'll be using it isn't up yet. There will probably be another activity like this in the future, so while you missed out this time, you'll most likely have another chance in the future!
