# 1 Rotate The Images
11-24-2012, 08:37 PM
So, one thing is clear, from the fact that this thread ...

http://sto-forum.perfectworld.com/sh...d.php?t=438571

... is at 44 pages and over 430 responses.

What is clear is that opinions vary.
Shocking, I know, right, but being realistic, there are going to people who find the "sexy" T'Boobs sort of image attractive, there are going to be people who want something more iconoic, there are people who are going to want silly.

My point is this.

One idea sticks out in that thread, and has probably gotten lost because of 400+ responses of borderline behavior on all sides. That idea is ...

ROTATE THE FRONT PAGE IMAGE

Since they should be trying to appeal to a broad customer base, wouldn't rotating the front page image between all the MANY that they have to choose from on an every couple of days , or every week basis. Maybe include some of the winners of Brandon's Art Challenges if they are good enough. Maybe put it on a rotating or random , every time you come to the page its one of many possible ... i don't know.

I just know that , I don't even remember who said it first , but "ROTATE THE IMAGES" is a good freaking idea.

Here are some that I suggest

Post all your ideas for images to rotate here.

Let's stop fighting about the image, and combine our ideas behind one idea, the "rotate the images" idea, that can make us all happy.

I mean, obviously from my sig, I have an opinion, doesn't mean I can't agree that working together to come up with an everybody wins solution is a better approach.

And hopefully more Trek in spirit.

If it makes you feel any better, they're still using the handsome phaser guy as the icon in Steam.

Yeah, I like this idea. It's boring seeing the same picture constantly.

MMOs aren't charities. Corporations are supposed to make a profit. It's what they do.

Done.


The term you're looking for is 'alternate' or 'add a selection of images to a daily rotation'.

just a thought for the man who created the game. It's all about money. Most of the people who play the game are men. want more players. Make it sexy.

I AM a man and i love ladies, but i also love Star Trek, and i think that the new bosomed up Romulan/Vulcan model they use in the front page is misogynistic and does not fit in here.

Well said, the first time I saw it, I couldn't help but compare it to the ad campaign that Evony ran/runs. I hope this isn't a portent of STO's future.

It fits in perfectly. For all it's high ideals Star Trek has ALWAYS been misogynistic. From all the scantily clad doe-eyed over-emotional barely-functioning women Kirk bedded, to T'pols half naked goo covered peep show.
