/r/India is getting ready for new redesign - Need Ideas, Subreddit theme, Banners and Logo

Hello everyone,

Reddit announced the new redesign few months back and this is the time to get ready for it. we did some editing and then faced the ugly truth that our design skill sucks. So we need you. You can pitch in ideas, banners, logos for new r/india redesign.

but root_su what the hell happened to the last thread?

Well, we are really sorry and we ended up using only the twitter banner but this time it's real and we have some cash prizes as well.

So what do you need?

  1. Banner and new r/india snoo design
  2. Redesign Themes
  3. r/india logos

Whats are the prizes?

  1. Subreddit theme - 1000 INR amazon Aoucher
  2. Banner - 500 INR Amazon voucher
  3. Logo - 500 INR Amazon voucher

Entering grumpy Mod mode

Now some guidelines -

  1. The banner/logo should be politically neutral. (Or no politics at all)
  2. No trolling
  3. For Subreddit design you can create a dummy subreddit and theme it as you wish. if you cannot create a sub then PM me, I'll create one for you.
  4. There is no timeline for now. so you can take as much time as you need.
  5. Banner Size and format -
  • Reddit banner- 1920*250 (At-least)
  • Twitter Banner - 1500 * 500
  • Mobile Banner - 10:3 in general. 640x192 up to 1280x384px.
  • Format - PNG is preferred, JPEG is okay as well.

Some Clarifications

  • We are not switching /r/India to the redesign any time soon. The redesign is currently visible to visitors who are not logged in and people who have opted in for the new redesign but we are preparing for it early.
  • The new banner (and snoo) will be used on both, current and new, design.
  • The theme will be specific to the new design (as the new design has different theming options than the current design).

Thanks everybody, can't wait to see what you come up with.

Edit - We got gold for winners :) Every winner will get 6 months of gold (Considering probability that we will have 3 or 4 winners.)

What games are you playing this weekend ?

Let us use this thread to discuss games that we are playing (old or new, any platform, AAA or indie) this weekend. What game are you looking forward to?. Are you a dev? Show us your wares.

I am going to be playing Planet Coaster, Fortnite and some Ni No Kuni 2. Hacknet is free to claim a copy this weekend.

Fornite Season 5 update is now out and they've added gyro support if you're playing on the Nintendo Switch.

Steam has a new Popular Upcoming tab and this page where you can see games curated to your library, wish list and the games you follow and another one which is not curated.

You can mention mobile games, board games and outdoor games as well.

Please don't just list the names of games as your entire post, make sure to write a word or two about the games. Writing the names of the games in bold is nice, to make it easier for people skimming the thread to pick out the names.

Edit: added about mobile games, board games and outdoor games

I literally have nothing to look forward to

Tired of passing every day like a robot and seeing my interest diminishing in everything i used to enjoy. My self esteem is at the lowest. Can't think of any bigger loser in life than me, myself . this is the image that i have of myself. I have literally no reason to live. I tried ending it but image of my parents comes in a flash which horrifies me further more . :'( . Today woke up with a thought of takung another attempt . never imagined i would end up like this.

Sorry for Rant. I just need to let it all out. Excuse my english .

Edit : I am amazed by the help i got from all you guys . I want to say Thanks and 'VirtualHug' for all of you.

[Rant] Why is the Govt. pushing Hindi down our throat!

This is something that has been nagging me for some time. This may sound like nitpicking and you are free to comment your views, but trust me, I've thought about this quite a lot and hence the post.

This is a screenshot from the IRCTC Website (You might have seen this before in this subreddit). When you search for a station the suggestions are with the station names in Hindi first and then in English. The thing that is bothering me is, there is already a Hindi version of the IRCTC website. What is the need for Hindi to be displayed here?

This is a station board from Chennai central Station. It's not difficult to see which language is given prominence here. The easiest to read is the text in the centre written in Hindi. It's actually difficult to read the curved font, written in English and Local language. This, in the southern state of Tamil Nadu where Hindi is not the most used language.

Apart from this, I have been noticing that there are numerous ways in which Hindi is being subtly pushed across Indian Railways. Checking out the reservation charts in railway station and pasted outside the train compartments, you will notice the names are written in hindi first and only then in English. Even for trains that run only inside Kerala. I can vouch for this because, every weekend for the last 4 years, I've been travelling back and forth between my hometown and my place of work.

Hindi is not the official language of India. India has around 15 official languages. Why is the current central government trying to shove Hindi down our throat?

Given all our problems, is our country redeemable?

Every day we are bombarded with news about the worst things about India. Corruption, religious and economic problems, disunity and distrust. From the water we drink to the air we breathe, we cannot be sure how safe it is. All we hear about are scandals, blatant corruption, and violence. Just reading through the posts in this subreddit, so much of it is so disheartening.

As a youngin, I was idealistic in my dreams that one day, India will grow to rival the west in every aspect. But nowadays, I am more cynical.

What do you think r/india?

Edit: And if you do think it is redeemable, do you think the change will come via a political process or actions of private groups like the ugly indian.
