'Loading' / 'Posting' Icon - StrandedBanana - 07-28-2016

Hello UB!
Just a quick one, I think the should change the icon which displays when you do a quick reply for instance, it looks really low quality if I'm honest!
I believe the old UB had some blue lines which moved accordingly, maybe we could incorporate that into the site, cheers!


RE: 'Loading' / 'Posting' Icon - Albus - 07-28-2016

Just so I'm clear - are you referring to the spinner that is shown while the page refreshes when posting using quick reply?
Here's the regular spinner from MyBB 1.6 that was active on UB. Linked via Archive. There was a larger version, but it doesn't seem to reside as spinner_big.gif as it is presently in MyBB.

If this is what you're referring to, I'll see if I can find more info in CSS or the page source from the Archive.

@StrandedBanana, is this the element you were originally referring too?

There was some blue integrated, but I'm not quite sure I can recall the manner in which.

I seem to have some sort of loading gif recorded in one of my useless ubers videos.
it's a shame it's bad quality though

Yes, the design feels pretty old from today's standards, but we need to keep that ubers feel alive atleast till forum reaches a certain big level.
But anyways just quick suggestions from my side (not the best in my collection :D but they go with the theme of UB):

You seem to "accidentally" keep a copy of everything. Thanks for sharing. I'll probably do a different loading icon instead as I continue to rework the theme.

After so many years on ubers.org, I actually forgot what It looked like.

Now that looks heaps better. I'm not saying that our one here on VT Is bad, but personally, I do prefer the one In the video, or perhaps some variant of similarity.

This is as close to the original as I could get.

This is all thanks to Socks. I used his YouTube video, converted it to a GIF, cut down the frames to target the animation, and then cropped the image down to what you see here.
