Board (Re)Customization

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. As we want every board to have their own unique look it is preferable that you do not link to the customisations of other boards as suggested colour schemes.

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 Mel, Chelle, or Rora 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 approximately 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 finished making the 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.

Mel, Chelle, and Rora

Exciting! Personally, I feel we should stick with the default colours, maybe a bit darker than what we currently have.
Maybe: https://www.design-seeds.com/seasons...huttered-hues/

As to images, again, it should be representative of the categories at ,

what does everybody else think?

Thanks for getting this started.

I agree, Chris. We should stick to default colors. I like a darker shade as well but not too dark.

https://www.design-seeds.com/in-natu...acti-color-18/
https://www.design-seeds.com/in-natu...fresh-hues-38/

For the banner, I prefer just general ones like the one we currently have.

Midnight blue. Like this shade.

Unless Chris, that's the kind of shade you like?

ok, thanks . So we could easily just go a few shades darker without going near that dark. I've still got a few more hours until I finish work but when I get home I could put together a scheme example if you'd like?

Lindsay - agree about not getting too dark. My main concern is that the colour for the thread titles doesn't get too light. When they're too light, I find them hard to read.

Chelle - I really like the middle one, but anything other than the last one which is a bit too dark, looks good to me. Thanks for putting them together.

I was on my phone yesterday & then forgot to look at Lindsay's colour schemes when I got home. They look purple & green to me, not orange & blue. Would you prefer that or was that just an example of shades but not colours?

If you find that happens you can always contact Mel (polaris) to discuss your concerns & we may be able to make alterations. All we ask is that you give it a week before contacting

Ah yes, we don't want that.

I couldn't find a mostly blue color palette but for the links I posted, I like the blue shades in those. I like the current blue shade we have now but perhaps a bit darker than that?

If possible, I'd like to see a coffee or drink cup image included since our OT thread is the café.

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,
Aurora
