Three great discussions and 6-8 weeks later, I'm here to introduce you to your new site design! Thank you to everyone who contributed ideas to the discussion -- there were many great points of inspiration for our designer, Lisa. Special recognition to DJMcMayhem's suggestion of Conway's Game of Life and Fatalize's reminder to avoid alluding to the game of golf.
As a note, while my original announcement stated that we'd be rolling the design out live first, we're sharing screenshots here now beforehand in case you notice any minor things which we can fix before rolling out live in the next few days.
Your Site Name Here:
There's been discussion on whether "Programming Puzzles and Code Golf" was the right name for this site as it's aged. When I asked whether it was still appropriate a few weeks ago I half expected the response I got and was excited by the ideas y'all had for how to rebrand yourselves. When it seemed that you wanted "Code Golf" but with a bit extra information in a subtitle, I encouraged a discussion about what that should be and we've gone with what you told us you want.
The choice with the highest overall score is what we've gone with, so I'd like to welcome you all to -
Code Golf & Coding Challenges
We really hope you feel this better describes your site!
The Logo (a picture is worth a thousand words - the ultimate golf):
Your community is unique and we wanted to represent both themes of competition and coding in your logo. We took notes from your community logo and created a icon that alludes to the community's themes and identity.
Everything Else (no ⛳️ 🏌️♀️ here):
But wait, there's more!
We were inspired by your feedback and your community script. We heard you, no blue theming. Included in the header design is code from popular answers from previous competitions. In the footer, you'll find Conway's Game of Life.
The first image has been updated as it didn't reflect the correct link color.
It has been a pleasure working with y'all on this. I'm so excited to bring the design to you and want to thank you for your participation and the time you've taken to express what you wanted, didn't want and to vote on the suggestions of others.
