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.

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

How about a Green- Gold color combo? We can either use the top yellowish or the 2nd one after it and the third last green

We use more than just two shades . Are you thinking just the two greens & yellow from that or do you like all the colours there? We can work with that & add in complimentary shades of green/yellow to make up the rest of the customization if you just want green & yellow

Are there any particular photoshoots you would love for us to use? I found a few here & here but not sure if there's any other or better sites

This and this are my favorite recent photoshoots from her and they seem to have a pretty good selection of images for GT to choose from. I also really like the Variety photoshoot from 2015 [Melissa in a leather jacket], but it is a bit dated.

Those are great. She just isn't smiling in any of the usable pictures from that shoot. I was thinking we'd want to include at least one with a smile.

Those photoshoots are lovely.

What about ideas for the colors of the board? Would you guys be okay if we went with the green/gold combo that was suggested?

I love the color scheme. She is a ray of sunshine and those colors suit her, in my opinion.

I like the colours the ray of sunshine puts it in perfect words and a Picture of her smiling in the banner would be the perfect Combo IMO

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,
Catia.
