1. All trilogy sites, and almost all other SE2.0 sites, have a hover effect on their "ask question" button.

  2. It can be argued the "ask question" button looks less "clickable" than how it looks in all the other family sites, it's very close to a decoration and thus really needs some way to emphasize its link-iness if a mouse cursor quickly passes over it.

  3. Seriously... it's a spaceship. We're talking high awesomeness factor here.

I know many others want it. Come on guys... together, we can do it. Upvote this question until the vote count overflows, until Jin has no other choice!

EDIT I forgot it was suggested before, though not as a real feature-request; original credits to LessPop!

Point 2 is kind of a definite. –  Grace Note Mar 1 '11 at 18:14
In fact it has been already suggested here –  Drake Mar 1 '11 at 18:35
@Drake indeed! I forgot about it, but it's anyway good that this gets a feature-request thread of its own! –  Oak Mar 1 '11 at 18:37
It's been on my long list to do, I promise! I will dedicate one day as the Laserpewpew Day for this. Realistically, I can work it in within 2 weeks. If not, keep bugging me. –  Jin Mar 3 '11 at 5:56
@Jin this is your friendly neighborhood ping. No pressure, just to remind you we're still here :) –  Oak May 26 '11 at 16:40
@Jin: How are you? –  user7220 Jun 7 '11 at 13:52
Lazers! Pew Pew –  gbsod Jun 10 '11 at 4:24
@Jin I hear August is a great time for Laserpewpew Days. –  Oak Aug 3 '11 at 20:01
@fredley I heard a rumor that the mothership finally has collected enough crystals for its GN drives to fire the Mega Particle Beam Canon. Soon. –  Jin Sep 22 '11 at 21:48
@Jin The year is almost up! –  user7220 Dec 2 '11 at 16:52
@Jin All I want for Christmas... –  fredley Dec 13 '11 at 15:57

@Jin happy lasers day! Wee! –  Oak Mar 6 '12 at 22:01
Seeing this finally tagged with "status-completed" is like a dream come true! :D Thanks @Jin! –  FAE Mar 6 '12 at 22:57

If we're going to go through with this, at least have it shooting something:


This could be combined with @badp's idea too.

This looks super-lame now compared to the real thing - thanks @Jin! –  fredley Mar 8 '12 at 16:29

The mothership charges its lazers.The mothership arms its lazers.The mothership fires its lazers.

Here's how the mothership could look like when firing its lazers. To compensate for the brightness of the sheer lazers our mothership is equipped with, the remainder of the page should dampen by 90%.

This is unfortunate, for the lazers look best against the scanlined effect.

-1, not enough pixelation. –  Brant Mar 7 '11 at 20:56
@Brant Our lazers are powerful enough that we overcome the limits of the hardware we were written on. –  Grace Note Mar 7 '11 at 21:23
Does CSS support HDR? –  Nick T Mar 8 '11 at 3:51
-1, the rest of the page should dampen by 99% from the sheer incredibleness. –  GnomeSlice May 25 '11 at 3:34
