New Rotators Voting

26 April 2017 - 04:00 AM

Vote for the FIVE you like best.


New front page rotators needed!

23 March 2017 - 08:06 AM

Do you remember the front page of TDA? This one!

 

It is getting a complete revamp and for that I need your help.

 

If you love making graphics (most of you probably do :P ), then this is the challenge for you.

 

You must have at least 10 posts to submit an entry

 

What I'm gonna need:

  • Desktop sized graphic - 1024x768px
  • Good decent amount of negative space - this is because there's going to be a text overlay and it should be readable
  • No text
  • Be creative
  • No copyrighted images - all site rules apply
  • It can be about whatever you want, this is a place to show the best TDA has to offer
  • You don't have to necessarily submit a graphic, you can submit anything you think fits the above criteria and that also showcases the other areas of TDA - photography, vector, etc - as long as it is your original content, go ahead

The best entries will be voted by everyone at TDA and you will be credited with your entry.

 

Let's see what you can do! :D

 

You can earn 20 Vault points for submitting a rotator!


Site Contest!

23 March 2017 - 07:40 AM

Hi everyone!
 
So...who is tired of the skins we currently have on TDA? Don't worry, if you love the skin you are currently using, it's not going away :P
 
But for those that are, or even if you aren't, here's a challenge for you:

 

You must have at least 10 posts to enter

 
 
New Skin
 
Be creative, do what you think should be the face of TDA. :D The only thing you should look out for is the following:

  • make sure you don't stray too much from the current layout of things. You can change the placement of some things, but big changes require a lot more work to code and get used to, so use your better judgment and if you have anything you aren't sure of, just PM me.
  • when submitting, include the hex colour codes for everything
  • use fonts that are available for everyone, or at least ones that are in google fonts. That way we can be sure that everyone is seeing your skin the way it should be
  • The little read/unread forum on the left of the forum name should be 30x30px in size.
  • The scroll up/down buttons (top right of your screen) should be 30x30px as well.
  • I will be coding the skin, unless you can do it yourself.
  • You must submit printscreens/images of how your skin looks like

New site pips

 

The pips are the little images under you profile pic on your posts. They indicate your member group. 

Only submit these if you are submitting a skin too, this is because we want the pips to fit all the current skins and your skin if you win. If you are submitting a skin, you will have to also submit new pips.

 

The size should be 150x30px and have the member group name.

 

 

 

New Forum Headers

 

You can submit one for your skin, or you can submit for other skins. You don't need to submit a skin to submit a new header.

Once again, you can be creative with these. Just make sure they fit the skin's mood and colours.

  • Maximum width for each header is 900px - for the Dark Green skin you can go up to 1000px.
  • Height, no more than 300px.
  • The text should be The Dark Arts and anything else you think describes TDA best. Don't use the current tag (HPFF's Graphic Design Community)

 

The contest closes on April 23rd, so you have one month to submit your entries. The best one(s) will be voted by the entire TDA community and the most voted will be the default skin, so put your best foot forward.

 

You will be credited at the bottom of the forums with a link to your profile.

 

Have fun!

 

You can earn 40 Vault points for submitting a skin!
