      I was under the impression that the team leader had to actually be a part of the team?

      something along the lines of "you must bow down to my every whim" or something.

      anywaywho, i'm glad the layout/theme is liked, because i've been toiling with that for sometime. 'subsilver' was the original and it was too grey (IMO); then i replaced it with a hybrid of 'bman1blue' which was too blue; this current one, however, i think is a nice compliment of the two colours.

      also, a leader was chosen upon the creation of this team; sorry everyone. he's a good guy though, honest!

      btw, mods are kind of considered members of all teams because they have access to them all...it works out better because if they physically join then they end up having too many 'team memberships' listed under their avatars (and then it lengthens posts too much).

      I agree with that, I also don't know why everyone thinks it needs changing so bad, but I guess a change could be good.

      Thanks you guys who still support the Lome banner! You know who you are.

      I ALSO LIKE THE CURRENT COLOUR SCHEME!

      Ok well since you guys like the banner I'm not going to waste my time making a new one...as if I have the time anyway, preparing for my thesis project, among other art projects, and trying to find a co-op for winter quarter. I just thought something alot better could replace the DV bubbly thing at the top. Lome, you are an awesome artist, sorry if I've offended you. It's just funny how the general public has been brainwashed to prefer relatively bad design and in fact, embrace it. ...sorry just goes against everything I've been taught over the last 4 years.

      No I think this whole place is wonderfully designed. As I have said...REPETITIVELY. I love the layout. I just thought the DV bubble banner on the top could use a little work...or alot. It reminds me of a generic thought bubble...and doesn't seem to have anything at all to do with lucid dreaming?? I just think something alot cooler could be there....but alas, I have been met with resistance...perhaps I should de-join this team if everyone is going to be so closed minded about everything.

      Why don't you like the thought bubble? I think it looks good :/. Maybe we can make another "lucid nina" friendly theme where she designs a logo and makes the layout. I just think his one stays as it is - any changes we make on another theme.

      haha, awesome! i esp. like the pissed off cat.

      anyway, i think perhaps there are some mixed signals being tossed around here. i am not opposed to a new header being proposed; when i was first opting to redesign the site (when it was still the plain original one), i just wasn't sure where to begin, which is often the problem--once i get on my way it's much easier, but beginning is tricky. i suddenly stumbled upon the squares up there on another site (green at the time), pictured them blue and at the top, and suddently realized i had a beginning! i just needed a foundation in which to start, and after that i made the little grey-bar menu, and then went through some of the art that had been posted on the forum and noticed lomebririon had already done a logo that would fit in well with the blue squares, and then things kept coming together like that.

      i think what we're trying to say here is before beginning to redesign things, that's get settled first. i still need to get the team leader settled in here, then the members need to become familiar with their surroundings and get organized and meet everyone, etc. etc. then perhaps ideas can start being spitballed, tasks can be assigned and delegated, etc. etc. i think coming up with a new header is a perfectly fine idea, but lomebririon may want to be involved, and also the end result would have to be approved. i really like the one we have, but new ideas are always welcome. lots of people are opposed to the idea of change in the beginning; often it helps to be presented with the potential change before one can really form an opinion.

      as i stated before in regards to the theme: i'd like to keep essentially the one we have, but little improvements here and there are welcome as well (i.e. i'm not sure if i've ever been completely sold on the two different coloured blue rows that make up the table headers, etc.)



      hopefully that clears things up somewhat.

      Thanks ice. The dawg is right anyway. We need to really think about this.

      Also people, I just want to say; and I hope nobody is offended, but taking a degree or course in art does not make you an artist.

      Um, excuse me, but I have been an artist since I was like three years old...just because I have chosen to get a design degree doesn't make me any less of an "artist". I am totally offended and hurt by your post Well, whatever I figure my artwork speaks for itself. Just let me know what you guys need help with and I'll try my best to please the "masters". Whatev.

      What makes you think I was talking to you exactly? And just because you're doing a degree is no reason to pretend like I am. Just because I was talking to you before, doesn't make it the case now.

      The story of you overcoming artistic trial and adversity was completely unnecessary. No one around here has ever claimed to be a master.

      Just a dictator.

      I just don't want people to get big heads over this. I've seen a lot of that. Being an artist like you say, I'm sure you have too.

      Jeez.

      Hmm..I'm just getting so many negative vibes from this whole thing...I guess I'm a little too busy with my own stuff right now for this anyway...I will bow out gracefully. I'm sure whatever you guys end up doing will be awesome, sorry I couldn't be more of a help. You're all awesome artists. Good luck all! And keep DV beautiful and fun.

      Wait was that a sarcastic post like "not valueable contribution" or are you saying her talent can't be valued?

      I'm pretty sure that was sincere, I dont think lomebririon wanted to drive lucidnina away.

      You might be overreacting a little nina, nobody wants you to bow out.

      I'll have no more of this disagreement in my team, everyone get along or I'll release my modness on your posts.

      Sorry guys...I've calmed down. Guess I'm just a lil sensitive, but I miss you guys, and I can't stay away from anything with "art" in the title for very long. It's like, an addiction.

      Hey! Sorry I've been gone so long. I've had a long vacation...that involved mostly sleeping. Only one LD in the end though. But I'm back now! And now I've got a whole class period to do stuff for the forum, call it homework and GET CREDIT FOR IT? Can you believe that? Anyway, no offense to Lomebririon, but I think that the banner could use work. However, I'd say that Lom should be the head of any work that we do, since he's shown that he's more than capable of really great artwork. In fact, I'd say that he should be team leader. Well, this is how things look so far:

      -We've got 1 bit of concept art for the banner, provided that we change it. Looks great, btw
      -We're still undecided on if we'll change the banner
      -The color scheme stays. PERIOD. I likses it too.


      So what else are we going to do? We haven't really talked about any other ideas.

      Fair enough. I disagree, but respect your opinion. What's wrong with it exactly? I'd like to know for future reference.

      Thank you!

      Well; It'd be cool, but I think Aphius will do a fine job as Art Team Coordinator. Ice chose him, i'm fine with that. I'll still play a large part in the work we do though.

      Can you tell me honestly why he's more appealing as a leader than me?

      Aphius - They probably haven't seen any of your artwork (you don't display it as much as Lom (I think?).

      I think you're both good .

      P.S.: I too would like to know what is wrong with the banner. The simple "dreamviews" text in the bubble shows how we all like to live in our heads here ^^. I don't see what is wrong with it...

      Actually, I think he might have just posted that before he read the whole..."Aphius is your new team leader" post and probably didn't realize a leader was already chosen? At least that's how I took it...
