Board Recustomisation

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 Rae or Mel 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.

Rae and Mel

I think that's down to what get's voted here.

I'm assuming we could have HP cast again, or we could have the trio from HP and the main four from FB or something.

Don't you have a campaign for FB? Keep in mind that this customization will be up at the earliest six months from now, and you might even have a FB board by then.

The campaign thread is active, so I can only assume people are interested in getting a board for it.

As this is the Harry Potter board I would not recommend including it unless this board is becoming a board for the entire universe. You may be using it for FBAWTFT currently but anything is possible, especially with the campaign. I would rather come back to this board early because you wish to change the board to include the entire universe than to change it because a board has been opened for FBAWTFT. However the choice is up to all of you as this is your board and the universe you are passionate about.

I think we should let the mods decide before we start posting pictures and schemes, what does everyone think?

Thanks for getting this started, Rae.

So happy that it's the board's turn this time around. I can't remember the last time HP was customized, I think the movies were still showing. It's been that long.

Jen, I'd much rather have HP characters on the banner than FBAWTFT.

Millie Mae, FB = Fantastic Beasts.

What do you guys want for a color scheme? I don't have anything in mind right now. Blue? Brown? Red? Green? Yellow? (I'm going off the Hogwarts Houses colors here, LOL.)

Also, I need input on which characters we want on the banner and do we want to use old pictures of the cast or newer ones like in DH? I think it's a given that Harry, Ron & Hermione should be there. I also prefer Voldemort, Dumbledore & Snape but if we can have room for more, which other characters would you all want included?

I will also look for hi-res photos once we've agreed on what pictures to use.

I'm not sure if this is popular opinion but Neville helped defeat Voldemort once and for all and he's cute and charming, so I think he deserves a spot on the banner.

I'll be okay with just Harry, Ron, Hermione, Voldemort, Snape, and Dumbledore too. Although I find the younger pictures adorable, I'd like to see them as adults this time on the banner.

Why am I not surprised you want Neville in the banner, Cece?

Maybe we can add 2 more in the banner?

I'll look over design-seeds for the color scheme this weekend but I don't want dark colors please.

We no longer make boards dark so you do not need to worry about that. However there will need to be some variation in shades dark colours will be used for things such as the top bars. I presume you were speaking more on the lines of dark boards like Twilight currently is and if that is the case that as it will not happen.

Remember that the more you include, the smaller the characters will be. There are a lot of characters and many may be fan favourites or a favourite of certain posters but are they important to the overall storyline? Do you really feel that they must be included in the graphic? Or is it better to keep things simple with the main characters?

To be perfectly honest if you want to include one student then the question goes to all the others. If you include Neville then why not Draco, Luna, or any of Ron's siblings for example? I do want to make this clear that I am not a fan, although I have seen all of the movies, and I am not a poster here. I am also not saying you cannot include Neville or anyone else, it is purely my thoughts which I wish to share with you. You can do whatever you wish with them (including ignore them if that is what you wish to do) and I am not trying to start an argument, just make you think about who you really want included. At the end of the day it is your board and we will do what you wish and it does not bother me one way or another. Obviously Harry/Ron/Hermione are the must haves and there is no question there. It is just the extras to consider . How about Hagrid? He seemed important to me but is not currently included and is listed as a main character according to Wikipedia.


And for those curious the board was last customised in April 2010, with the customisation put up in June 2011 (which is the same as Daniel Radcliffe if you are curious about that was also). That would make it from during when the final two movies were being released. It has been a while but your customisation is only five years old which is what we hope for between customisations and the time frame we tell boards that they are likely to have their customisation for.
