Returning Focus to Elite:Dangerous

Commanders,

As pretty much all of you know, we moved from our old hosts to this one and also shortened our URL to just 6ic.co.uk from 6thinterstellar.co.uk - which makes life a lot easier for all, I'm sure!

When we moved here, my aim was to expand into other games and build up a sort-of non specific gaming community. However, that was probably a bad idea. I watered down our focus too much, when we're all really here for Elite. Other games on the side are cool, but our main focus is Elite.

So, today I made the decision (sorry, admins! But I'm sure you'll be 100% behind this!) to go back to being focused on Elite:Dangerous. This means we can really build a brand again as being one of the best Elite:Dangerous wings out there. Not the best by means of combat status or whatever, but the best by means of community.

With this re-focusing, I'd like to call upon everyone to come together and promote the 6IC, bring in your friends, advertise it where you can, and really go out there to show the 6IC brand and name to people you think would be a brilliant addition to our group!

A new 6IC logo has been produced, embodying our approach to Elite. Keeping it simple, with 3 stars to represent the 3 star systems we have inhabited, chronicling our journey through the galaxy. I have done away with Empire logos within it, however we are still Empire focused.

Further changes are coming.

I like the re-focus on Elite. I like the new background to the site. I like the general design of the logo but it's a bit plain for my taste - perhaps you and Driftwood could collab and come up with something a little more .. more?

The logo at the top of the site is quite big.. have to scroll down a lot now. Could move it over to the left and make it smaller maybe?

I personally like plainer, bolder statement logos, but I can have a go at sprucing this one up with some more flairy-wairy things

I think all I want is a solid fill on the circle 2/3 colours? And some anti-aliasing? Maybe.. might just be me tho.

Design speaking, anti-aliasing doesn't exist, it only really exists to smooth out 3d rendering.

I can try filling the circle!

As soon as we're done editing the logo: Change it on Inara too so it shows it in the signatures :D
