Board 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 Kate 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 Kate

I'm kind of torn with taking Gina out because I love her being there

You don't necessarily have to remove her even if she's currently not in the show. She was an important part of the show and a fan favourite, and in the end it is up to you, as the posters of the board, which characters you would like to see included

Have you thought about colours at all? Would you like to have something similar to what you have now or maybe shake it up go for something completely different?

Anyone is welcome to post their ideas and thoughts!

I'm not sure. These colours work really well for the show, imo, but I'm fine with a change too. Depends on what other people want.

Aw I know what you mean but I'd definitely vote to keep Gina. She's was a such a vital part of the show

I do like the blue that we have, but was thinking maybe change to a darker blue (more of the navy blue color like their police uniforms).

Darker would work well. I think their uniforms might be a little too dark, though.

You may be right. Navy Blue, perhaps?

I think it depends how dark the graphics team can make work.

Which characters do you want included? Who are most important? Anyone who should be next to each other? Are there any new pictures of them? I found these from S6 & these from S5.

I'm guessing these characters (with the last three as smallest?):

Jake
Rosa
Terry
Amy
Charles
Raymond
Gina
Michael
Norm

(once you've decided on characters, if someone is able to go through the pics & point out who is who for those who aren't familiar with the show that'd be most appreciated )



As for colours, how about something like this? The uniform colour is a bit dark, but we should be able to use it. Possibly only in highlight areas or even just the graphic, but I wouldn't rule it out completely.

Thats a nice color scheme, Chelle. Similar to what is here, but still different.

Love that colour scheme.

Making Gina a smaller part works. She was a massive part of the show.

Thanks for that link. I did see it, but didn't post it as we prefer to use individual pictures of characters wherever possible not group shots

_______________


Are these the correct characters?

Jake Peralta / S6 promo with Amy
Raymond Holt / S5 promo
Amy Santiago / S5 promo
Terry Jeffords / S5 promo
Charles Boyle / S5 promo
Rosa Diaz / S5 promo
Norm Scully / S5 promo
Michael Hitchcock / S5 promo
Gina Linetti


Are there any friendships or relationships we should take into consideration for the placement of the characters? Providing we keep that level of importance are you happy for us to go with our own placement for the characters?

Jake and Amy are in a relationship so they should definitely be next to each other. Jake, Charles and Rosa should be near each other since they're all friends. Scully and Hitchcock are a duo so they should be togther in the graphic but imo can be on the smaller side since they're more comic relief/supporting main cast. The show is pretty much an ensemble show, so everyone interacts with everyone

This is just my idea from the 4-ish seasons I've seen to help the team, if anyone has any other opinions, please post them!

I can see Rosa near Holt, too, because they do have a great relationship. And, Chelle, yes, you are correct with the name and photo.
