I was just checking the PotD and searching for some nice models to re-skin, and it just got into my head that, perhaps the Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy site ( Jedi Knight 3 Demos, Mods, Patches & File Downloads ) should get a new look after..5 years? 6?:uhoh:
I hear it so often from my friends that are still playing this game, and from those who have stopped long ago, that the site looks so '' old '' and ''same as always'' ''boring''.
And recently STEAM started selling a JediKnight game pack which includes the whole JK series, that may or may not make the Jedi Academy game more popular. Duno if that has any effect in the amount of JKA players really.. But Im pretty sure if the site would get a new look it would cheer up people, and give a message that '' we are still active''.
I strongly belive that because the site looks the same from year to year, it can make the whole game look very very old, and therefore affect on peoples mind in a way that makes them quit.
So is there anyone who has some spare time to give the site a new look? -New background image, site banner, something. :uhm:
And most of all, how many agree with me?
The sites all share a common codebase. Major modifications would likely require rewriting the entire network's front-end - though I've been given a vague hint that such an upgrade is in progress, or on the agenda at least as soon as the new batch of sites are finished and ready to go.
I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.
FileFront has been through a lot lately. We'd all love a new look for the site, but the bugs on the back end need worked out first...else we'll be left in the dark with a half-operational site for who knows how many months. =D
