Happy New Year! Logo update and small housecleaning

Posted on January 1, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in Site updates

The future is here! We’ve finally reached 2017. That means it’s officially the year of Switch. Exciting, right?

To start off 2017, we have a couple of small site updates to bring your way. First, we’ve finally updated NE’s logo. As much as we’ll miss Wii U, Switch is taking over, and it only made sense to reflect that on the site – and so we’ve swapped out the GamePad in our logo for the Switch unit. I ultimately felt that a small, subtle change rather than a complete overhaul would be the right way to go. If you can’t immediately spot the difference… then mission accomplished!

Massive thanks to Beta64 for helping us out with this. He approached me wanting to help, so I’m incredibly grateful. It was almost a happy coincidence that this happened since I’ve been watching Beta64’s YouTube series for a very long time. It’s fantastic stuff and there’s no doubt that it requires a ton of effort, so you should seriously consider giving it a watch.

As another site update, I’m sorry to say that we’re removing NE’s “likes” functionality on January 8. That’s the little text you see in each post (and on the homepage) showing how many times something has been liked. It just wasn’t really used by anyone, and since NE sometimes feels like it’s hanging on by a thread, bogging it down with unnecessary features is probably silly at this point. If or when we find a way to make the functionality more interesting, we’ll definitely consider bringing it back.

Thank you all so, so much for your support in the previous year. I seriously can’t believe that NE will be celebrating its 10th anniversary several months from now. I hope everyone has a great New Year’s and a great 2017 overall. There should be fun times ahead with Switch on the horizon!

    Thank you for everything Nintendo Everything! Its exciting times especially for us Nintendo fans, hopefully 2017 will bring lots of positive things (such as the Switch) and as always, I look forward to all the fast news and updates you guys will bring. Bring on new era of Nintendo!

    Happy new year and good ridance 2016. This has personally been the worst year of my entire life. I spent most of that year dealing with the slow death of the person I cared about the most, friends went through rough times and my hobby (gaming) was in a pretty bad shape. They say you should always look at the positives, but frankly, the only silver linings that I can see are that this year is ending and I am blessed with top tier friends. When one things ends, another begins. While forgetting all of this might be beyond my capability, the mark of a new year helps put things a bit behind you.

    I hope that this year can be one of hope for all.

    • Lord Ozzie

      Sad to hear about your loss and I truly hope things get better for you.

      • Vigilante_blade

        Thanks. I kinda used the year’s end to vent off my frustration for one last time and am prepared to move on from this. Courage was embodied in a 5 foot 4 man built like a twig with a singular genetic difference. I will fulfill his wishes.

    • JasonBall

      Oh man, sorry to hear all that. Best of luck to you in everything.

      • Vigilante_blade

        Thanks! And I look forward to discussing the Switch event alongside you.

        • JasonBall

          Totally. I just know we’re gonna disagree on stuff, but let us look forward to and enjoy the forthcoming exchanges of ideas in an attempt to better our own humanity.

          • Vigilante_blade

            Well said. I do respect you despite the differences in opinions.

    • Usama Notkani

      Sorry to hear about your loss. I also had one of the worst years in ky life and lost someone I cared about deep deeply so I cab reciprocate your feelings on that. Also psychologically is was a bad year for me as well. Other than that one of my country’s and the world’s finest creations died this year in Eidhi so sad about that as well. Hope to discuss games with you even though we disagree a lot.

      • Vigilante_blade

        Thank you. I do not know why the thing I wrote was somewhat held back from being posted since I haven’t said any bad words, but the gist of it is that I want you to extend my sincerest wishes to you and hope that things will be better for you as well.

        I am sure that if he or she has impacted you so much, that whomever you lost must have cared very deeply about you in return.

        Remember that in the lives of those around you, you are a spice in their life that brings a certain unique flavour that may never be replaced. So when things are difficult, remember that you have worth for those who care about you.

        And of course, we may disagree at times, but I look forward to talking with you. I am a man of strong convictions, but I still love hearing what others think.

        • Usama Notkani

          Thank you for the konf words but I think you misunderstood me a little as well. The psycho psychological problems I’m having are not suicidal tendencies nor are they actual mental issues. Its just that I am not in centre with myself and in the midst of maybe what can be described as an identity crisis. But thanks again nonetheless

          • Vigilante_blade

            Sorry about misunderstanding. Still, good luck figuring things out.

    • Supporter

      I hope this is a much better year for you, friend. πŸ™‚

      • Vigilante_blade

        Thanks, and I hope you have a great time, yourself!

    • Brian

      Man, really sorry to hear that. 2016 wasn’t the best for me either from a personal standpoint. Let’s both turn over a new leaf this year!

      • Vigilante_blade

        I wish you the best, Brian. Sounds like 2016 was a rough year for a lot of people. All the more reason to be happy it’s done!

    • Liam Freeman

      Yeah, my year wasn’t too great. Media didn’t help my anxiety, and neither did getting hit by a car (I’m fine now). Sorry to hear about your loss, and I hope 2017 is a better year.

      • Vigilante_blade

        Hit by a car? Man, I hope you it didn’t leave you with any lasting damage. Hope 2017’s a good year for you.

        • Liam Freeman

          No, I’m fine, was pretty bruised for a while, but no broken bones

          • Vigilante_blade

            Good to hear!

  • timZ117

    Happy new year brian, and the rest of the NE team! Congratulations with the upcoming anniversary. Can’t wait to see how the site is going to grow in 2017!

    • Brian

      Thanks man!

  • R.Z.

    Happy new year people !
    I can’t wait for the stuff coming next year for Nintendo and I will be happy to follow it here on NE !
    Good job on the logo too.

  • JasonBall

    Sorry to hear you’re hanging by a thread. I would tell all my friends about this place but the few I have care not for Nintendo. Maybe they’ll be converted this year with Switch. Good luck with the site and life, and happy new year.

    • Brian

      I just realize now that I probably should have clarified what I said, haha. NE is fine! Really fine actually. It’s just that we often deal with technical issues. I’m kind of worried what will happen on January 12 / 13. Hoping everything will hold up… should be fine! I think.

      • JasonBall

        Lol that makes more sense. Glad to hear you’re traffic is great.

  • hi v3.0

    Happy New Year!

  • hi v3.0

  • Adrian Brown

    Happy 2017 to everyone, I hope this year will be great for Nintendo in general, including Nintendo Everything.

  • DrowningInBrownings

    Hey! Love the site, but I’m not sure if you’re aware that the images posted under the titles of the articles DO NOT show on Safari (iPhone version). Is anyone else having this problem?

    • Rooftop

      You are probably using an ad blocker on your phone, like Crystal of Firefox Focus. These are spaces for advertisements. The ads will be gone, but it won’t edit the CSS of the site so the space will be there yet empty.

      • Rooftop

        PS. If you love reading this site, consider white-listing it in your adblocker so ads show up. That way the site gets money from ads. Your choice of course, but at least you don’t need to deinstall the ad blocker.

    • Brian

      So… that’s actually intentional. The reason why we did that is because we’re trying to remove as many resources as we can when people are viewing NE on mobile. Most of the time those images are just window dressing.

      • Rooftop

        Oops, so I misread title for menu. But I do see images directly below the title on Safari on iPhone? Not that I mind πŸ™‚
        Or maybe there is another image I am not seeing. I’ll check later.

        • DrowningInBrownings

          If you load the website on a proper computer, you’ll see an image right below the header. Those images, as Brian said, are purposely removed on mobile. I really do love those images, tho. But whatever keeps the site more affordable! Keep up the great work!

  • Supporter

    Beta64’s YouTube videos look great so I’ll definitely check them out. Thanks for everything Brian and Beta64 for the new logo!

  • Ser2k2

    Happy New Year!

  • MagcargoMan

    Happy New Year everyone! It seems a lot of people didn’t have a good year this time so I hope 2017 is better for all of you. This is the number one site I visit for Nintendo News and I hope it will be around for many years to come.

    By the way Brian, is it just me, or this site getting a bit laggy lately? In the past few weeks I’ve been here articles tend to lag when is scroll done or type comments. Other sites work fine for me so it can’t be my internet.
