I love all the Ryan videos on the front page, but at some point they are all going to be displaced by current video game news, reviews, and whatnot. I wonder if the site could have some sort of Ryan Davis memorial link or header that would link to all of the sort of content that has been making the rounds over the last few days. At some point there will be new readers of the site that wont know who Ryan is, I donno if I want to live in that world.
Definitely some kind of content collection or archive section, but I also like the idea of adding a commemorative icon or plaque or something on the layout itself. Maybe up by the logo. I'm sure the guys will come up with something though. Ryan has been to important to this site for him just to quietly disappear after the mourning period.
yesss! the sombrero thing would be an excellent loading icon
Yep that's my favorite nod.
I don't think there should be a permanent memorial section on the site. If they want to do like a yearly tribute or something that's one thing, but a constant reminder that the man is dead gets pretty morbid after a while.
Theres Andre the Giant sitting pretty at the top left of the screen. Always. For non-members at least but same point.
I dunno whether I personally like this idea or not. It sounds cool but seeing his face whenever something loads on the site will make me sad.
Your avatar is Ryan Davis.
As soon as I read the thread title, I could only think of one thing.
I think it should be one of the guys from this image, somewhere down in the bottom area of the page. Like, down in the bottom right, the last thing you see. Grinnin' and truckin' on away.
I think it would be pretty good.
