I didn’t really cover this on here or really announce it in any way, but I have removed the Coming Soon page on the Mullafacation homepage as I have said I was going to do for three years since it went up in 2019, but this was not something I was planning to do. If you remember the blog post I made showcasing the new design, the information on the main page is under “Old bio” but the actual design is different. But why is the design different, and is that a new logo?
Well, yes, that is the newest logo of Mullafacation, so new that it actually hasn’t been introduced yet. I wanted to release the homepage so that I could link to it and it would actually give you a portfolio of stuff that I am doing and have done. I guess I could have just finished that website but I am going to rebrand to that logo anyways so I figured I would just use that. I haven’t used that logo (Logo № 5) yet because I had a plan on when I was going to introduce it: I was to release a video on Oversimplified Logos (which shows how long I had planned that as that ship sailed in 2021) on the Mullafacation channel, but before releasing that I was going to release the First Video and then the Channel Trailer, so with all this backlog that I would need to get through, it wasn’t likely that I was going to introduce the logo soon.
The simple list of links with a bit of design/CSS is all that the homepage really needs to be, but I’ll still say that it’s temporary for now. The reality is that I like it and I don’t think it will go to the “new” design. After all these years, the Coming Soon page couldn’t vanquished without a post about it, so here it is!
And yes, it is inconsistent, and that’s something that would annoy me (and the YouTube channel logo is still inconsistent until I release the First Video because there is some meta stuff going on there that you’ll see soon) but for the sake of actually getting stuff done, I’ve rolled it out now. And it’s better to do something than to not do it at all.
More information on the logo and what it means coming soon!
I made two new designs for the channel art while we’re not posting videos on the channel. The first one is very low-res so I’m going to have to remake it if I want to use it. Here they are:
I made the background in October 2021 but the text is new. I was trying to incorporate the old Epic Gang logo with the big E and G with the round Epic Gang members underneath being abstractly represented by the roundy lines.
I like minimalism, but I put barely any thought into the last one so I’m not as proud of it.
I wanted to make a post out of this ages ago but I didn’t think I had enough to say, I still don’t but it’s better with news than no news (which may contradict what I said earlier when I deicide to stop posting biweekly so that you could get better quality posts which now is turning into no posts at all. See what I did there? By talking about something for a large amount of words I now can announce something mildly important and make a proper post out of it. I am very sneaky.
This was put up last minute, I’ll change it tomorrow.
It’s Epic Hedghehog’s birthday again, but it couldn’t be celebrated in person. If it was celebrated then I didn’t get the invite >:(. Currently I’m doing something in relation to the closure of Adobe Flash, which I want to get finished (I’ll put it on Status soon), but then it’s going to be prioritized to the website (because of the deadline), the Pug & Slug which will actually be our 100th video, I have to get my Fortnite challenges done for March, then I have a surprise for you all and then it’s looking good for Epic Gang Adventures! 🙂
We have at last released the new Epic Gang channel art! I have been thinking about it since last Christmas when I got the idea to replace the reindeer with Epic Gang members, and now it’s Christmas, and my ambitions to get EGA done by 2020 have been changed because of the fact we are building MullMC. Instead of using Happy Holidays I said Merry Holdidays, which I realize now doesn’t have the alliterative ring to it, but anyways to celebrate, I made this collection of old channel arts. I’m also not forgetting about the Epic Slug video which will be both a birthday, Halloween, and Christmas/Hanukkah/December festivities/etc. special. So without further ado, here is the table and a long written out description in plain text as a punishment of me writing text on an image without copying it first onto the article!
OK, I know there’s an Epic Puppy, but we’ll let them away with it, because they did contribute to the channel 🙂
We have a new member! Epic Pug is Epic Kitten’s friends brother and I’ve known them for a few years and when I was talking to them they were thinking of doing YouTube, so I said they can join the Epic Gang if they want. I had a look over the requirements and they were considered trustworthy by me (who is an honorary HR member even though I’m not in the theme tune) and has contributed to the Epic Gang (yes they will be in a video) so they are automatically in the Senior Squad! I won’t put a deadline on the video though, because I have loads of other Vent projects (MullMC, the news programme, Epic Gang Adventures etc.), but I’ll see what I can manage. 😉
It’s Easter! Other then the fact there is no work for school the holidays it seems like nothing has happened because my whole country is on lockdown. Epic Kitten got an Animal Crossing game and their equivalent is “Bunny Day”. I’ll need to change the channel art. I played the old Animal Crossing game and I played on the old one. Unlike the predecessors you can play 2 player but I was busy paying off my house loan in the old game. You can sell fossils you find underground or give it to the museum for “cultural development” so I only sell the ones that are already in the museums. In the new game you can only get eggs underground until the “Bunny Day” week is over so Epic Kitten is annoyed. But I have nothing really to report back other then that the EGA script is coming on very well.
There will be a lot of changes to the Epic Gang website in the Mullafacation redesign, but for now I didn’t really want to fix anything on the website but there was something I noticed in the About Us section that I had copied and pasted the same text that said “to see our history, go to About” even though you were already on about, and the way I said “If you think you have a talent we could use” sounded like it’s some premium club where you would want to work there even though they treat you badly. When you join the Epic Gang, you’re a part of it, so nobody is treated better then otheres, even though we have a ranking structure it doesn’t dictate how well you are treated.
Yesterday was Pi Day and Epic Kitten baked this lovely pie with the Greek letter for Pi (Π) on it. Yesterday was the 14th of March (written in the USA like 3/14) and that is PI day because Pi is around 3.14. The number pi is the length of the outside of a circle (the crusty bit on a pie) divided by the line if you cut the pie in half. I’m not very good at explaining it without an animation, but you can look up some interesting videos on it.
