But I wanted to know how old the uti Header is. I mean the big sign at the top of the screen with uti graphed on a calc and some Contra in the background. Cuz i think we need a new one. Maybe a contest for it. And u know that tiny icon to the left of the url box that shows the website u are on. Like myspace has 3 little figures. Lets make one of those too. Make the site more developed and all. Dont mean to diss the old header and all. But i feel we can do better.

How dare you question the UTI banner, you mere mortal! Taste my wrath! I shall divide you by [font="courier new;font-size:9pt;line-height:100%;color:darkblue"]tan(90)! :ninja: :ninja:


Understand that Contra was the biggest UTI project ever. It probably deserves a place in there, as accomplished what was considered impossible at the time, creating a complete Contra port in only Basic. If we were to remake it, however, I'd probably add Robot War in there somewhere, and maybe incorporate the "D" UTI logo too. But it's really fine the way it is. What would you want to add?

Wrong forum. (Again.) I'm moving this to Provide United-TI with Feedback.

Roughly 2½ years, I believe.

Uh huh, got it.

Why do we need a new one?

We had a contest. This was the result. ;)

I have no idea what you mean. Please explain this to someone who has never used MySpace.

This is a forum. What do you suggest? Help us out here.

Better with what? We're doing a wonderful job! Please try to be more specific on what it is we need to improve exactly. And I do mean improve, not just throw stuff around for kicks. That banner is an irreplaceable element in UTI's history, and this is like requesting Google to change their logo. You need to create a poll asking if we should make a new banner, but you might find the results suggesting otherwise. This is just a hunch, but it's a confident one.

Well, we'd like to let the visitors know the name of this place. :)

That's something to look into once the public agreement is that we should redo the logo.

One of the advantages of the current logo is being only 16x16, it takes very little RAM to get our branding across.

In practical terms, re-designng it every few years might be defeating the purpose of said logo. Wink I'm open to design suggestions, but it would have to be one heck of a design to justify a reinvention.

It used to be the UTI "D" logo, but now it's not. Dunno why that was changed.

Oh, the Favicon! Look again: it works fine in Opera. It just needs a little nudging to work in Firefox. Oh, and forget Internet Explorer—you can expect that to be confused about where it is until you bookmark each website.

Thank u iamacalculator.

By text i meant, its an old english style font that anyone can pump out of theyre, windows microsoft word. Sorry Goose, i should have used font. I meant that the font is an ordinary font that anyone can use and has seen. What i think would be better is something custom for example. And by saying this i dont mean to offend u as i seem to have done in earlier posts. Counterstrike logo has custom font. What do i mean by custom font? i mean that u wont find that font anywhere else unless its a joke on it or something i dont know.

Cemetech changes theyre banner. Not all thing shave to stay how they are. Change can be good u know. Now ive only been a member of this forum for like 4 months and i guess i didnt realize that this peticular banner had so much meaning and blood and sweat and tears put into it that i would get bad feedback on the idea of changing it. But i did say before that i was not trying to offend anyone or diss it. I think its a pretty good banner. But ive been in the multtimedia class for this past school year (which by all means is not much) and we've been learning about logos, banners, web design. And from my perspective it could be better but nevermind. Obviously u dont want it to happen and if the rest of the uti forum agrees then i guess this discussion is over.

Yes, but Cemetech is actually ONLY text, not a fully-graphical designed banner...

And also, Cemetech is NOT United-TI.

And if it is easily recognizable, then why couldn't we keep it. If you're so sure you could do better, than please do it! It has stayed there because of the history of it and the contest since then. Has Coca-Cola or Pepsi changed their logos alot of time? Has Ticalc changed their logo alot of times?

I may hide it well, but I'm actually very aware of the messages that people try to convey with their words. Plus, I don't know which package or suite your computer uses, but what the banner contains is not an ordinary font; I am fairly certain that no one can divulge to me a standard Windows/Office install that comes with Cloister Black. ;)

I'm pleased that you're learning new things in a multimedia class—that was one of the few courses where the teacher respected me enough to allow me to help him compose assignments for other students. It was an expression of sincere criticism on your part to see our banner as a project, which itself even agrees with the idea that someone who has recently developed or honed new skills is excitedly willing to make work of it. I didn't intend, however, to stamp out your notion that the banner could be improved, and I'm not effectively saying that it cannot, but I did pose a few questions just to find out where you were coming from. As for blood, sweat, and tears, that status is probably best left to its creator, Drubu, who may yet bear the original files for the UTI banner, and could procure them for you if you request them.

Oh, and IAmACalculator: Radians is implied unless indicated otherwise. [font="courier new;font-size:9pt;line-height:100%;color:darkblue"]‾1.995200412209
isn't exactly [s]zero[/s] undefined, but it still isn't pretty. :biggrin:

Fallen ghost. I didnt mean change the D logo at all. That was a miss write on my part. When i wrote this post i only meant, the favicon , and the banner. As for changing logos, Pepsi has most certainly changed their logo. And i can only assume that it was for the best interest because they were looking for a more modern look. Im not sure if this site is creditable or not, buut it looks like there are some definite changes in the pepsi logo. So there.

"D" Logo = Favicon =

Pepsi hasn't changed its logo for 16 years. United-TI? Not so much!

Even though I've messed with the Cemetech header, it's always been with the same color scheme and the same basic text+lightning bolt thing. I've just modernized it as the site grew.
