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

Yay! Super exciting!

I'm bad at photos but will try to see if I can find any. Will give a list of character names and faces. And maybe any preference of positions or who is the forefront. (Maybe Bobby and Athena.)

Colors. I know red isn't a fan, but maybe some way to incorporate it..maybe a firetruck if the artists can make it fit well in a graphic.

I had some choices written somewhere, so I need to find my notes. Maybe match it to official promo colors. Maybe some green/yellow/uniform blue? Will look up color schemes.



Here is the banner in the board guide. Kinda these colors. I think the latest photo shoots.


Michael, Buck, Maddie, Athena, Bobby, Hen, Eddie, Chimney

I think May and Christopher should be included. At least Chris for sure. I wish we had more info on May's role in S4. But these kids aren't 100% needed. (Guess Harry and Karen are up in the air, but they're not around as much as May and Chris.)

We could just use that pic as the colour scheme if wanted

We've decided to postpone this customisation until the next round so everyone on this board is able to give their opinions on the customisation process.

So excited for this.

We really don't have any good promo photos with the cast. I know Jackie said that she would love to have Chris and maybe May on the banner. But we don't have any photos of these two that I think will work.

These are the only photos that we have and I'm not sure how well they will work for the banner.

https://images.spoilertv.com/911/Sea...onal%20Photos/

Then we have this full cast photo, which is my favorite and would love to see it on the banner, but not sure how it will work when they are standing so close together already?

There's character photos for s2 here towards the bottom
But yeah I'm not sure where to get good photos of Chris and May.

^I have been looking everywhere. Searching on different things etc with no luck at all. Only really bad quality ones came up for me. So thank you for showing those for me.

Those character photos of season 2 would work for me.

I would love that the characters would be in the same order on the cast photo I posted earlier. But switch placement on Maddie and Buck.

So maybe in this order?

Michael, Maddie, Buck, Athena, Bobby, Hen, Eddie, Chimney

I'm definitely OK not having any of the kids in the banner.

Who should be in front? Athena or Bobby? I'm assuming Athena, since that's how it is in the group photo.

I think we may need to do that order reversed? Going by the way the characters are facing (aside from Eddie).

Is it possible to have both Athena and Bobby front and center?

Yes. While one picture technically will have to be 'in front' we can make both character the same size/front & centre


Going by the way the pictures are facing, can Eddie be on the other side? So something like this: Chimney, Hen, Bobby, Athena, Buck, Eddie, Maddie, Michael or Chimney, Hen, Bobby, Athena, Buck, Maddie, Eddie, Michael ? Or would it have to be Chimney, Eddie, Hen, Bobby, Athena, Buck, Maddie, Michael?
Are you sure you wouldn't want Maddie & Chimney next to each other?



What are you thinking for colours? Still colours like from that picture? I did put together this:

As long as Athena, Bobby and Buck is in the front I will be happy. Like Athena in the middle and then Bobby and Buck beside her on each side? And then the rest of the cast beside either of them and so on? So either of the suggestions you had would work for me, Chelle.

Not sure about Chimney & Maddie. I don't feel it is so important to have the couples together in the banner for this show.

I like those colors, Chelle.

Also not sure if you guys make your own text (logo) for the banner. But here is a png of the shows logo just in case.

Fair enough I know nothing about the show, just saw you had one couple together but not another so thought I'd question it.

We'd only make our own if we had the font used by the show
For the logo do you want the box bit around 9-1-1?

I understand that. I think with Bobby and Athena, it is more of they are pretty much the front characters since the first episode. And that is why we would like to have them (and Buck for me) in the front.


For me, the box bit isn't so necessary to have on the banner.
