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

Exciting time

Here's a 2020 photoshoot using the following pics 001 - 002 - 003 or would it be a problem cause of the 2nd one having her hand?

Almost thinking this 2019 photoshoot may offer better options here's another 2019 photoshoot

I also get a wintery tone feeling when I think of Phoebe?

Her face hasn't changed too much over the years so we have a lot of options for shoots.

I like these because her face is facing the front: one, two. I'll look for more later.

I think soft colors would work best for the board (like spring), nothing harsh or dark. Colors like these: one, two.

Even if her face hasn't changed much would still think would want to make sure not to go any later than 2018 so do something 2018 or 2019 or 2020

Mainly cause both those photoshoots have different lengths of hair probably would want to do something recent due to that reasoning alone

She doesn't look different than she looks now though and I don't see why hair length matters if they're not combining shoots. The GT could start the graphic and Phoebe could shave her head, so what then? Her hair right now looks a lot like the first shoot I posted.

Yay! So excited! A little tired tonight but I'll look for pics tomorrow and think about which colors I think might work.

I will also fully check out everyone else's posts on it.

I'll let GT come in and say whether they still prefer recent even if Phoebe hasn't changed much since the 2016-2017 photoshoots you posted they will have a better understanding to explain plus they could have their own rules

AND technically you have a point about what if she did do exactly that about shaving her head

Could check out their FAQ for answers as well

They said anything going back three years is considered recent. The 2016 shoot I posted resembles Phoebe now which is why I suggested it. I thought this thread was to share ideas?

Those pics are nice.

I also like these as possibilities, too.

Agreed. I really like the idea of greenish pink or orangish pink from the second one.

I also think maybe going a bit bluish could work as a throw back to her first big tv role on H20. Something like... this or maybe this.

Everyone is more than welcome to share their ideas here

We try to use more recent pictures to avoid the risk of the graphic looking dated quickly after being put up, but if you feel like an older set of photos will represent her well or better than more recent ones we will definitely consider them Variety is always good for the team.

As for colours, we can combine light blues/greens with pink or peach tones to make it a soft, breezy mix. Some slightly deeper shades will be used to create contrast between the different areas but when Mel does the colour schemes she makes sure to avoid any dark colours anyway so the board doesn't look harsh to the eye.

Really like that 3rd suggestion that you made Ashley for picture schemes

as a backup also really like the 2nd suggestion though the 3rd scheme is my favorite

That sounds like a really cool idea blues/greens with pink/peach cause it does make it sound breezy yet soft
