  • [Suggestion] Change the pink background to the full screen "flaming" red background

    The current pink background is somewhat distracting and makes the animated "flaming" background stand out too much. The previous red background did fit very well with the old menu's color scheme and still does with the new one.

    I would recommend using this red background instead and adding the option to select an animated or static version of it.

    Here is what it could look like:

        +1. Made a followup mock-up. http://dev.dota2.com/showthread.php?t=37088



        What it would look like if the blogsite used alternative styling when displayed in Dota 2. (Hides right column + larger text/img instead)
        + Redundant Dota 2 logo removed. Top margin reduced.
        + Original "Chat" text and bar removed, because the content is self-explanatory.
        + Original "Friends" text and bar removed, replaced with Friend and Group tab for consistency. (Add the same functionality as in Steam Friends!)
        + Removed moot borders for Chat and Friends. (They are moot because of all the white-space.)

            This is like the one hundredth thread about the pink BG. Use the search before post new threads...

              ^ But this one is actually constructive, has pictures, and is therefore superior.

                OMG... try to think: If every time someone creates a new thread there will be hundreds of duplicates and constructive idea and pics scattered around them. That makes it very hard for the devs to actually see the good points.

                That's why you should post in the existing threads so everything is in one place. Place the constructive thoughts and pics in existing threads, it is that simple.

                    But every thread without the [suggestion] tag is basically a rant thread. Wouldn't it be equally hard for developers to find good points in a thread filled with rambling nerds and endless nay-saying? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Broken_windows_theory

                      They need to see what the general opinion of the public is. Things that are hated by majority needs to be changed while things loved by majority not.

                      But every thread without the [suggestion] tag is basically a rant thread.
                      You need to read this forum more.

                      The most logical is to put suggestions to most popular threads, the more people will see, add to it, give feedback, etc. It is not like someone alone makes a suggestion and devs take it - they want to see what majority thinks, wants and agrees in.

                        You sure post a lot.

                        Anyways, two things: first of all, to be honest, I don't think the devs are reading every single post here, especially since many of them are short uninformative rants like "I hate X" and "X is stupid". With a quick glance, it's probably easier to notice a problem with a new feature when there are many posts about it. Then, if they ever need more info on the subject, they will probably look through the most popular/informative threads.

                        Secondly, I gave details and a screenshot to explain the issue. You don't even need to read the text, you can just look at the image and understand what I meant to say right away. It's better than the thread you linked that says that the pink swirly thing is ugly.

                            That could be cool too. Make a suggestion post, maybe?
