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 very excited for this because our current banner has been up forever, and Dan's changed a lot.
I can find links tonight of shoots I like.

Yes. Red is one of those colours we actively avoid (along with dark ones), as it's a really harsh colour on the eyes. If we use red, we either make it darker (often it's related to a show that wants a blood colour) or make it more brown toned so it's not pure red.

But mostly we try to stay away from it if a board isn't set on using it.

I would think the easiest colors to use then would be blues, pinks, purples, or greens.

I don't know how Amy or Lina feel, but since we had blue for years and years I'd prefer to see any of the other colors that aren't harsh on the eyes.

What sort of colours do you feel work best with him or make you think of him? That may be a good place to start, along with what sort of colours you all personally like . You may have already had blues but we could always change them up and stick with that if blue does work. Or we could make them more teal? I have no idea..

Blue reminds me of Dan because of his eyes. A darker blue than the current blue would be nice. Not like a navy blue cause that would be too dark, but somewhere between navy and sky blue.

as for photos these are my favorite -

04 - with beard
05 - with beard

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.
