Hello kixeye, I have a couple of questions. And I'm not sure if I put the post here or somewhere else.

I am a vega conflict player, and I had seen your wallpapers.
I was wondering if there was a job I could help out with in creating those?
I'm a high school student and I've been in graphic design for two years going on third, for my senior year.
I suck at drawing and sketching though I do very well in Photoshop.
i've been trying to think of different places I could try to apply for when I get a job. And since I've been a part of kixeye community, I was wondering if I could get some information about different things and the possibility of working for kixeye in the future. I have some files I could show you guys. That I've worked on.
If possible could kixeye respond back please, thank you.
Sincerely,
Richard

    I agree. Frankly if I were a company with a webpage like that, I would just be embarrassed.
    Its even dumber when compared to say, the quality of the forums. This places looks pretty good in terms of design and layout, but that webpage looks like it was thrown together by a 12 year old just learning Adobe Dreamweaver.

    I think I kind of remember the old one. Even as a substitute, that looks fairly shocking. Thane's Dreamweaver comment about sums it up, lol.

    Man lemme tell you, as a person (or technically Mantis) who has taken web design courses and so on in the past as part of acquiring overall qualifications, seeing a web page like that really annoys me.
    Its such a lazily piece of work even I could do better than that, and lemme tell you, I am an absolutely **** web designer.

    Yeah, it is bad. I think even I can do better, and my only experience is a bit of Dreamweaver in ICT classes.

    Same here. Its funny actually, I failed all my Dreamweaver related exams but even then, whatever I produced still had more content than what KIXEYE's site has lmao.

    Here, just to say, didn't KIXEYE's site at one point have some sort of scrolling elevator style thing.
    Like, its tough to describe how it looked, but when you logged in, wasn't there an image of someone sitting at a front desk or something along those lines, and as you clicked links to different sections the page would automatically scroll down to whatever section ya picked and so on.
    I remember KIXEYE have a site style like that at one point. That looked pretty good actually.

    EDIT: Here we go. I found an image of what their site (or one of em) used to look like at one point.
    Is this what you were talking about Hyperius? I do see some guns and all that decorating the walls. Have I got the right site?

    I don't know if it's what Hyperius meant, but it's definitely the one I was thinking of.

    Man, why did KIXEYE get rid of that site? If they were gonna overhaul it, couldn't they have kept that one around for a little longer until it was changed. Speaking of KIXEYE's website, whilst I was digging around for that pic above, I found some concept designs for their new site. What do you guys think?

    I loved that page.
    That brings up memories of the good old days in war commander.

    Looks rather awesome IMO. Nice of Kixeye to keep a 'support' button there, they really do care! (I jest, I jest).

    Only thing it was missing was a Will Harbin dildo Easter egg.

    Brings up good memories for me too. Back when that site was around, I believe it was also the glory days of BYM. Man, those sure were good times.
    The days of charging into battle with D.A.V.E.'s and raising hell and conquering outposts truly were the best of times!

    Sorry for bumping.

    Kixeye's on website should at least not look like a total joke like this.


    Kixeye as a company should have the power to make a high standard website. The complaining can go on for days because how lazy kixeye as a company are.

    Here is few examples of true laziness.

    TOME: Immortal Arena


    Video and screenshot of the day. Haven't been updated in a very long time.


    Upcoming features that has been upcoming features for more than 1 year.



    Then there is the group features which is on beta but haven't seen any love in a very long time. It's possible to find even more but and I may spend my time on that.

    Like I said man, I think KIXEYE should have really kept the old site around. It doesn't look like their going to do sh*t with the current one. Hyperius claimed they were going to re-design it back in May, 2016 and its been like 8 months since then.
    I can imagine building a website for a company like KIXEYE might take awhile, but 8 months? Seriously?

    Also, I get that appearance isn't necessarily the most important thing, but doesn't KIXEYE want to be taken at least vaguely seriously in a professional sense? I've seen so many other websites managed by both larger and smaller companies that are updated promptly (not like KIXEYE's which still has evidence of TOME as though its still in active development) and they look good.

    Does KIXEYE just have nobody who actually maintains these sites on a technical level?

    I think kixeye don't spend any resources on there website. A updated website means a lot for the customers and that hasn't kixeye realized yet.

    We may have to explain it to kixeye in a level that they do understand.

    It was actually a great speech by a Swedish politician which was about how to make other politicians understand.

    He did use smurfs to explain that another politician party that they was wrong.

    "Det kanske är på denna nivån man ska lägga sig på för att göra så att de ska förstå." (source)

    Which means "It's this level you have to explain it in to make them able understand."

    It's questionable which level we as a community have to explain to kixeye that they are wrong. How we explain it now do seem that it don't work.

    Then we have a reason to question them if they don't understand. The language can be a bit complicated.
