Board Recustomisation

Hi everyone ,

The Fan Forum Graphics Team is in the process of (re)customising message boards and now it's your turn!

If you have any picture or colour suggestions please post them in this thread. Don't post (hotlink) the pictures, links to them are fine. Make sure that the pictures are of as high quality as possible and that the top of the head of the person in the picture isn't cropped off. We also like to use photoshoot images when possible, preferably individual pictures of each cast member. When suggesting colours please keep in mind that some colours will work better than others. The Team usually tries to avoid really vibrant and dark colours because we have found in the past that they are hard to look at for long periods of time. If you would like some help coming up with colour combinations we recommend checking out the design seeds website.

Everyone is encouraged to voice their opinions for this as you are the ones who will be posting on the board and we hope to make as many people happy with the finished result as possible. It does not matter if you are a board moderator, regular poster, or casual poster here. If you have a suggestion, please share it here with us .

Your suggestions for possible pictures and colours will be taken into serious consideration, but in the interest of seeing every board receive the best customised look possible the final decision concerning how this board will be customised will be made by the members of the Graphics Team. This is because we want to make sure that the selected graphic and colours fit into the overall design scheme that we've established for Fan Forum.

For a full explanation of the message board customisation process, see this thread. If you have any questions, please feel free to send Rae or Mel a PM or ask the Team on the message board customisation thread.

Please leave this topped until a week or so after the board has been (re)customised.

Note: It usually takes less than two weeks for us to finish making the new banner and the sooner we know what you want, the more we can work on it (though it can take a few months or so to set it up with the new colours on the board), so please let us know your suggestions as soon as possible.

When the Team have made and voted on a winning graphic I will close this thread until the graphic and colours get put up. It will then be re-opened so that you can share your thoughts about it.

Rae and Mel

I'm excited about this, and I'll start brainstorming! Thanks Rae and Mel!
There are some recent nice photos from this Good Housekeeping issue.

This is so great!! I'm excited about it. I remember how it was 2 looks ago.
I agree with Claire about the Good Housekeeping shoot.

These pictures would work better than the scans for the GT

Do you have an idea what colours you'd like to have?

I started thinking of colors and then realized my ideas were similar to what we have now. I like the contrast of something like pink/peach/lavender with turquoise. But that's close to what we've got!

There is nothing wrong with sticking with those shades. It would still look different. You could even go with different shades of those colours to what you have now to make it appear more different. It is up to you if you want something completely different or stick with similar colours.

If you take a look at the design seeds website you may find a colour scheme you like. I had a little look around and found a couple which may fit in with the colours you suggested: one (would need turquoise added), two, three, four, and five (would need turquoise added). We can also combine colour schemes if you find some which you like parts of.

Ooh, pretty! Thanks for the ideas. Two and four are my faves.

I like five, but they're all pretty.

I like No. 1 the most. Bright clear colours. No.2 is too dark for my taste, it reminds me of the old layout of the Lauren board. But the other layouts are great as well.

I like 2 and 3 personally, but I'm not picky.

Safari allowed me to open them all, and I agree no.1 is my favorite as well.

We have now finished making all the graphics and the Graphics Team are going to vote on a winner, so this thread will now be closed until the colours and graphic have been set up - then we will re-open it so you can tell us what you all think!

If you have questions please post them on the Info Center's Message Board Customization Process Thread, but please check the opening post to see if your question has been answered there first.

Thank you everyone,
Rae.
