Redesign of RaiderQuest forum!

Post by Zendragon » Thu Jan 29, 2004 11:07 am

2004 is here and I have a desire to freshen up the forum design. Thinking about changing the colors and look a little and was wondering what you guys thought might be cool.

Your feedback would be helpful...

The logo will stay the same pretty much although it might get a facelift. But the rest of the look is up for discussion. Black board with white fonts? That sort of thing...

I am looking to change the rank images, the buttons, etc...

Is it possible to try differant "schemes" in the differant sections? That way we could actually see what something would look like to help us make up our minds...

That would be a challenge, but I may have an idea... I will see what I can come up with

If I change them, I will try to stick with earthy tones...

It won't be very gradual though, but shouldn't change the functionality much at all

Zen,

Can you do a screen capture as you're playing around with different options? That might be a time/space saver to giving the group samples for feedback.

PINK?! eeks.

We were never pink...lol, that was Chloe's forum I think

Chuey, I will be experimenting with stuff over the next couple of weeks. No firm date set for changes. Some may be temporary too...

Sorry my mistake. I thought it was this one. I suppose pink is a very bad idea. It might scare all the guys away. Unless they dig the pink song from Aroesmith.

Well I like it, but I think its too radical a change from this one. Sure it looks good, but I think its going from nice rich colours to something a little too plain and empty. The layout looks cool though. :wink: Hope this helps (and I didnt wanna sound harsh!!! :shifty:)

*EDIT* ........although it is growing on me! :D
