Board Recustomization

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 Mel, Catia or Chelle 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.

Mel, Catia and Chelle

This is so exciting!

I would love to do a blue shade. I'll look and see what I can find!

Exciting

I love those colours, Cathy! Our current colour scheme fits the show really well, but I would love something a little lighter this time, maybe a mix of blue and purple.

As for pictures, we only have a cast photoshoot from season one. Kristin and Jay (the leads) did another photoshoot for season two, but it doesn't really go with the other pictures. We didn't get a photoshoot for seasons three and four at all, so there's no recent pictures unfortunately.

I would love if we could keep the same characters in the banner. Evan can be a little smaller seeing as he wasn't on the show that long.

Vincent and Catherine
J.T.
Tess
Heather
Evan

What does everyone else think?

Oh the main color blue with purple accent would be nice!

That works for me Ingrid!

I thought that was the case with the pictures which was such a shame could we look at episode stills from later seasons or are you happy with the season 1 pics?

I'm fine with the season one pictures. They always look so serious/worried in the episode stills

Honestly the girls looked different by season 4 so if you could find some good ones I would be fine with it!

I just looked at those colours you posted & they look beautiful . You could possibly even mix them with what you've got now if you wanted? I tried to find a colour scheme which did but didn't have much luck (just saw this & this) But really we could just add brown to what Cathy posted to add a darker shade to it. I feel it alone would be quite soft & you may need something darker to stand out. That could be gotten from the pictures though (& may still end up being brown )

I wouldn't know where to start to look for episode stills so that'd be something you'd have to do if you want to look into it

Cathy, I do agree about them looking different which is why it's such a shame they didn't do more photoshoots.

Chelle, you can find episode stills from the final season here. Like I said, they all look so worried in them, but if you can find a few that would work I'm fine with that. There's no recent stills of Evan though.

At least in that season it doesn't look like they're usable as they're turned weird ways, or are looking serious as you said. The only usable pictures really are in 4x02 & 4x06 & its mainly only Cat & Vincent, possibly Tess. If this is Heather & this JT then we may be able to do it but Evan may look weird since would be the photoshoot picture unless we tried to find a pic of him from when he was on the show

I noticed that too about them turned weird ways.

Yes, that's Heather and JT. I have some screencaps of Evan saved on my computer, but his episode from season four was an alternate universe episode and the lighting is very different there.

Here are some stills of him from season one but I have no idea if you can use those:

Option 1
Option 2
Option 3

the second might work

What colours are you going with? The pink/purple/blue one that Cathy posted?
