Board Customization!

Hi everyone ,

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

If you have any picture or color 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 colors 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.

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 colors will be taken into serious consideration, but in the interest of seeing every board receive the best customized look possible the final decision concerning how this board will be customized 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 customization 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 customization thread.

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

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 colors get put up. It will then be re-opened so that you can share your thoughts about it.

Rae and Mel

This is awesome! Thanks so much .

For the banner I think that Klaus, Rebekah, and Elijah should be in it. They're the main characters...if needed I guess you could also put Hayley and Marcel in, but given how they're more supporting cast I think it really should just be the Original family in it.

Here are some character pics:

Klaus (x) (x) (x) (x) (x)
Rebekah (x) (x) (x) (x)
Elijah (x) (x) (x) (x)
Full cast photos: (x) (x) (x)

Here's the websites for the pics (x) (x) (x)

*****

As for color scheme... definitely light colors. I find it so much easier on the eyes. I would say when I think of this show I think of red, but I don't know how you could do that successfully with light shades.

Maybe a nice grey/blue combo would suit the board because the show does have a "darkness" to it. Plus the S2 photoshoot seemed to have that same color feel. Like This:

^^^ First thing I thought of was a cool grey and a red.

Nothing pastel or really bright.

I love the idea of just the Original family in the pic.

Yeah I think having the family in the banner is best plus the blue/grey scheme might look awesome...Though if y'all can figure red into it that would be pretty amazing. I just don't know how that could work with lighter colors .

Anyone have any suggestions please feel free to post them .

I've always really liked this background image of them, the three with the frame and the fleur de lis:



And something like this for he colours, except less awful, maybe some blue and easier to read

I get it.

Maybe something like the old Dexter board or True Blood ?

Yes! Both are lovely, and have the theme of blood and murder like we're going for.

I like how light the Dexter board is, but the colors on True Blood's. So maybe just a lighter version of True Blood...whatch think?

I like Kara's color chart

It has the color of Nik's eyes, and his soul

Is pale blue the colour of murder?

And Flora likes your colour scheme.
