:Thanks! I would love to have you help with the gui! I pretty much suck at designing. I used to have a graphics artist (JussiPik), but he seems to have disappeared. Lately, I have been thinking that I might want to allow wiiconnect to use themes, which could be a simple zip containing png images, and a text file with the coordinates for the buttons. That way, people are not bound to a particular design, and I don't have to choose which design to include. Anyway, thanks for offering help. If you want to contact me, just email me (jsmaster@tampabay.rr.com) . [[User:Jsmaster|Jsmaster]] 17:19, 7 July 2009 (UTC)
 
:: I had an idea you might want to consider based on the current GUI. One thing I always liked about the PS2 was its system clock display. In addition to showing the date and time in text on the screen, it showed twelve prisms arrayed like a clockface with whichever was the "active" prism (based on the hour) lit up. The entire face would rotate on the axis of the active prism, performing one full rotation every minute. Can't find a good video of it, but there's a couple of seconds' worth [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vB6LGZqb2bE#t=44s here]. Some soothing ambient sounds played in the background. I liked to leave this up on the screen if I wasn't doing anything else.
 
:: If the current GUI was extrapolated into a 3D Earth, perhaps something similar could be accomplished, with either the axis of rotation changing, or perhaps having an orbiting Moon whose orbit changes based on the time. In any case, even if nothing quite so fancy as this is produced, I think the date and time should be displayed on-screen somewhere.
 
:: Further brainstorming this concept, maybe different menus could be represented by different planets. --[[User:IanWatson|IanWatson]] 20:17, 7 July 2009 (UTC)
