  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!

    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.

    @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.

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

Lazers

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

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.

    @Brant Our lazers are powerful enough that we overcome the limits of the hardware we were written on.
