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, Chelle, or Rora 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, Chelle, and Rora

I already checked for pictures

I guess these would work best for the banner
Chris Shelley - Adelaide Kane France
Chris Shelley #2 - Adelaide Kane France
Chris Shelley #3 - Adelaide Kane France

as for colours.. I personally don't want a blue board, I'd prefer warm colours.
something like this or this or this

something green/brownish I guess

Those are cute shoots Some pictures from this one may work too? They're from this year so slightly more recent. Not sure if you like those ones?

Those colours look pretty

Yeah I like them too.. had them in consideration, wasn't sure if they could work

If I may I'd request that there's at least one picture in the banner where she's smiling, please?? )

I can't get the affiliate site to open, no matter which browser I use, which is weird, because I went to the site all the time before, and right after, it was our affiliate.

I tried 3 different browsers, so I can't see which pictures you all have picked. I much prefer she smile, too, in at least not one, if a couple, of her smiling. I like her happy.

The colors I see you've picked are mostly pinkish, not green/brownish. I like the first link you have Holly. This one http://www.design-seeds.com/in-natu...r-creature-12/

I definitely don't want anything blue or purple. I do like the pink ones in that swatch, and I like the grayish one at the very right.

Maybe try linking to the same sets from the affiliate Holly if the other site isn't working?

She can't open the affialiate and obviously neither the page I linked.. that's why I suggested to clear the cookies since they are two different pages...

I read it as her presuming that your links were the affiliate, not that she can't access either . I should read things more carefully probably as I must've misread it

Is there any other fansite/gallery?


In case you can't get them to work Kim, these were the shoots Holly picked:



Then I suggested this one:




(click each of the above pictures for a larger version)

Doesn't help you search for any shoots to suggest but at least it means you can see what has been suggested Hopefully Holly's suggestion for clearing cookies works though

no problem Chelle.. and thanks for posting the suggestions..

I hope that works too because tbh I have no other idea why they won't show

there's also this gallery but they don't have the latest shoot yet (but we didn't suggest that anyway)

Thanks for the suggestions. I tried, and it erased all my signed in accounts, facebook, etc. and I had to reload passwords every time I closed my browser. Finally got that fixed, but I am still trying to fix other things in my browser.

Tried all those pictures that way, and they still wouldn't load, so I don't know what's up.

At any rate, I am not worried about the pictures, but about the color. Certain colors depress me, dark-ish blue, or dark purple. So I'd be a definitely no on those.

I like the pinks and light purple in your first set, colors and the gray on the right (but it may be too dark)

I like this one, here-the 2nd and 3rd from the left.

The pinks with light, warm, colors, would work great for me.

By gray did you mean this shade (second from the right, or second last)? Any darker shades are used in highlight areas such as bars, text/links, & buttons. That shade isn't too dark to be used . Then what pinks & light purples from Holly's first set did you like as none of the colours show up as those shades for me. The only pink shades I see are in this colour scheme

Simply using the 'Color Creature' colour scheme your colours would most likely turn out as predominantly oranges/tans with a touch of green

Oh no ! Next time you clear make sure that you uncheck the 'saved passwords' or 'active logins' option (or something along those lines) so that doesn't happen again. It should provide you with choices on which browser data you actually want to clear & normally I'd recommend only having the 'cache' & 'cookies' ones checked, probably the 'form & search history' & 'browsing & download history' wouldn't hurt either. You may need to click something like 'details' to get those options to show up when you go to clear things depending on what browser you use

By gray I mean the very last gray, as a sidebar kind of color. I don't see the gray in the one you posted.

The pinks and light purple are the first 3, from left to right. I'd rather not have dark colors, dark blues, or dark purples.

I like the ideas of light oranges/tans, with a little green.

I don't think I'm explaining well. Maybe Holly can explain what the first 2 light purples, and the pink, that show up for me.

Thanks. Good to know. I copied and pasted this, so I can use this next time.

I feel like we're looking at different colour schemes? Is this the one you see pink & purple in:

Yes! The first 4, from the left.

Then the gray at the very end, on the right.
