Yada yada yada
Though I normally don't consider myself overly obsessive-compulsive, when it comes to web designs, I can pick the nits with the best of them. I tend to spend hours making sure that everything is aligned just so
, selecting the lines and colors that look best to me, and - my favorite - choosing icons and animations. And so I came to the point today where I needed an ajax loading animation (aka "spinner") for the new PTP. At first I went over to preloaders.net
to check out what they have in stock, but nothing stood out like appropriate for PTP (short of boring, generic crap). And then I got an idea - the Tei'kaliath clan symbol is round... and preloaders are often round... so why not rotate that? It's as thematic as it gets! And I made two versions:
Unfortunately now I can't select which one is better. And I've got, like a dozen more variations in my mind how the symbols could be arranged.
Which is when the next idea struck me - why not make this fun for everyone and crowdsource it? Worked like a charm for Daydream page titles! And thus this thread was born.TL;DR
Help me decide which ajax spinner is nicer looking (that's the one you'll get in the PTP remake). Either vote for one of the above (post in the thread), or create one of your own for others to vote on. I can supply you with what I got from Kern - a 32x32px version of the symbol:
. You can use that, or you can come up with something original. It should be a looping, animated GIF
, and it should be either on a black background, or a transparent background
. Also don't make it too big or too small, and keep an eye on the file size. 50KB should be tops.
Sorry, no prize, except that the winner will have his work displayed on PTP remake as long as it's there (probably).
