THE SRK2 REBRAND THREAD

Recommended Posts

Hmm.  Well, now that the name is picked, I guess we can shoot ideas for how the logo will look.  I'm feeling the oldschool, so I'm voting for neon tubes font.  That or the oldschool metal block style.  The name is doing it. 

 

Neon style:

and the metal blocks...............Err, Chrome style.

 

https://duckduckgo.com/?q=chrome+font&atb=v78-1&iar=images&iax=images&ia=images

 

Hmm. Maybe a mix?  Not sure which colors, but my heart is feeling Neon orange with Dark Chrome.  Probably write the Mega part in chrome and the shock part in neon.

 

 

 

.................I still kinda wish you had went with M.I.L.F.s  Just for the weird looks that people would have to get when they realize it wasn't porn.

It's actually based on old Neo Geo advertising.  Thought it would fit well with the forums' theme.  We'll see how it goes.  Might put up a placeholder logo for a bit.

That is the first thing I thought of when I heard the name.

Man, as many times as I stared at that screen...................ESPECIALLY when I was on the ship.............I'm a little embarrassed that I didn't catch that.

 

After a little bit of traveling, the 100mega shock does sound decidedly more Japanese now than it did then.

I never understood why this forum didn't become "The new SRK". It is superior in every way to that discourse garbage. I'll be the first to admit that I hated Vanilla forums when it was on shoryuken.com, but misterbee certainly found a way to make it very appealing here. 

 

But hey, what's in a name.

It is quite odd...it's like if there was someone still preferring to play Atari 2600 on a small black & white television as opposed to any of the current-gen systems today on a large 4k screen.  SRK on discourse is basically the Atari 2600 on a black & white television right now....such a fall from grace there...

Me either. @misterBee gave us everthing old SRK had and more. I think if old SRK had gone away completely, things may have been different.

Well we haven't used Vanilla since the early days anyway. 😉

 

Once the new name and logo are finished (ugh I'm so lazy) feel free to advertise all over!

Wait, this isn't Vanilla anymore?  What is it?

 

Edit: Read the dev log. Haha, I legit thought you just customized/modded the shit out of Vanilla until it was no longer recognizable as such.

Vanilla has two versions: the one they use for their Vanilla hosting service, and an open source one you can run on your own.  Unfortunately the open source version lagged behind quite a bit, and there were a lot of bugs.  Decided to switch to Invision after a couple of months because lots of things weren't working.

Will do.

I'm not trying to influence your decision...............unless it's working.  😉
