After over a decade of bringing you the latest Diablo news and builds, DiabloFans will be shutting down on March 21st, 2019. On this date, we will archive the site in an effort to preserve the history. Thanks for your patronage throughout the years.
Jetrall, very nice! May I suggest something though? Instead of the question mark shape in the fire, maybe try to add an "F", so you can incorporate it directly into the name Firebolt. I'd draw it up but I'd feel like mine would be to similar to yours! An I have to go wait in line at the DMV for an hour.. Better get on that.. <_<
What do you think of this Magistrate? The firebolt with the O could work as a smaller logo.
I like that you worked the concept into the name, but... Hrm. It actually says Torchlight to me more than Diablo. Maybe it's in the simplicity of the flame? (Maybe I should do one for Torchlight--I love that game.)
If you choose one that you like, I can work on integrating it w/ text (such as the above example) or just choosing a nice font to go next to it. I'll try a variety of options, of course.
Agh, this is a tough call. The one below looks much more Web 2.0, but I'm not sure if that's the look I should be going for. The current design of the overall site, with the exception of the search bar (I haven't done anything with it for a while), is much more grungy.
I guess logos are supposed to be clean and simple. Maybe I'll reapproach the overall site design with something lighter and cleaner.
Now that I think of it, I think I like the first one better.
Guide profiles no longer show a preview of the guide's respective link. It simply caused to much trouble to pin down with any reliability for every possible URL and account for the desires of the respective webmasters.
They now contain all the search keywords of the guide (you can click on each of these to start a new search based on that keyword), as well as an indexed list of possible related guides.
Coming for this Feature - Show guide's keywords on profile.
- Allow report guide function from profile (currently on search results.) -Show guides with related keywords (sorted by number of related keywords and then number of hits.)
- Provide banner image from profile that can be posted anywhere to advertise each guide.
Honestly, I don't see why D1 support is relevant. The concept of a build is to allocate limited resources for maximum efficiency. In D2, this takes the form of a limited amount of skill points, stat points and a huge list of randomized items.
In D1, everyone can get max stats and max skills. Items are still a limiting factor, but there's not nearly enough variety to spawn any amount of interesting builds. Everyone does the same thing anyway, so one can't really talk about builds the same way in D1.
Don't bother with it I say, much better to devote that time to more d2 features. Besides, name 10 d2 builds. Now name 10 d1 builds...
PlugY for Diablo II allows you to reset skills and stats, transfer items between characters in singleplayer, obtain all ladder runewords and do all Uberquests while offline. It is the only way to do all of the above. Please use it.
Supporting big shoulderpads and flashy armor since 2004.
I dunno I gotta say I like how Jetralls has the question mark integrated, even if its less apparent in the newer versions. I mean it's a search engine. Caniroth's is really good looking but I think it may be a little too epic for the style of the site.
My thoughts exactly! The only reason I might add "support" for Diablo I is that I'm going to work on making it so I can easily click some settings and add a new game through the CMS. (Diablo III, Expac 1, Expac 2, possibly mods.) Under (or next to) the search bar, a drop-down menu will appear with all of these game options so it knows which tags to search through. Diablo I, II, III, expacs for three, and mods for all three. (I'm just going to have Diablo II combined with xpac since I'd have to go through a hundred builds and discern that at this point. They can add a tag for classic if they want.)
