How do you want the forum to look

Sun Sep 02, 2012 5:50 pm

basically what colors do you want this forum to have ?

This forum should be similarly toned to the index and general discussion, with perhaps adjustments based on Bleedman's color schemata. Not much change.

Any specific requests, though, anyone?

Grey, purple and black?

Are we going to get themed backgrounds for each sub-forum? That would be cool.

The art forum would be a bit nuts though.

That has been discussed and seems likely, at this point :)

Well that's something I guess.

Digital Purgatory had a themed comic book page and I'd love to see themed forums too. That would be awesome-sauce.

Hard to say what it should look like really. To be honest this is a pretty good set up as is. If a change is necessary, probably only thing I could suggest is creating personalized backgrounds for each sub-forum like with Bleedman's could have characters on the sides. Color scheme is just fine as is.

MY POINT EXACTLY TROLOLOL.

Rosso i will legitimately start reporting your posts because you're falling under the "common fail troll" category. If you have nothing worthy to say then please do us all a favor and shut the fuck up.

So far only three people have complained that the setup is fine, while hundreds have cheered the idea of a change, so this forum is getting changed and that's it. We're not going to try to fix what isn't broken though, we're going to do a paint job on old walls, so please give us the benefit of the doubt until you all finally see the setup and realize that it doesn't work, because so far nobody knows how good it will look.

I wouldn't say it's as much of a landslide as all that.

But a majority is a majority.

How about going by the PPG's hair color, since PPGD is the first comic (not counting KoF)?

Red theme, black background, yellow titles, keep the white text?

Not sure how that would look though...

I favor Dib's idea much better now. And for that, all we have to do Is find some pictures of the main characters in each of the comics (lock it to two characters like the current theme). However, I feel like that in order to make the forums unique, these two characters must be those that we all consider to have the most important role, and because this is the bleed forum, two of these characters might come from two different series, one PPGD on the left side, and Grim Tales on the right. Same thing with other forums, and the place will look very nice.

Regarding the idea I had, I don't think entirely themed forums would work anymore because it'll make the place look as If someone puked all over the forums, and some colors contradict the purple color scheme.

"common fail troll" category

Sorry Dib.

Huh... Sounds about good for now. I mean, I have some ideas for the two-characters-a-page thing, if ya want 'em.

Re: How do you want the forum to look

The "news" sub-forum would be a mess, I dunno what to do with it. I don't think Endling loves us anymore so EA is out. Dix is done. Snafu can probably stay the way it is.

The Bleed background for this sub could be done easily enough, just the question of who really. I'd think the obvious choice would be to pick 6 characters, 2 from each, and put 1 member of each comic down each side. So, like, Jr on the right, Mimi or Minnie on the left. Blossom on the right, Bell on the left. Hansel on the right, ginger/licorice on the left.

The other forums...Spam will do whatever it wants. Art, no clue, they'll probably submit something AMAZING that will shame everyone else. Literature, I'd just do quotes or something, RP...no idea. Gaming forum, they can pick some games or something.

Re: How do you want the forum to look

The game forum could show Snafu and the other guy wearing a headset and holding an Xbox 360 controller. Role play could have the two guys in fantastical outfits we see in RPG games like World of Warcraft or Final Fantasy. Haven't really thought about anything for Literature and Art yet, but Spam...not sure, but that forum can have its own entirely separate theme.

...I think we'd be better off letting them pick their own themes.

We definitely want input. We'll likely make stickies asking their opinions once we have a method for application down.

@Rosso it is hard to offend me as is (being brony and what not) so no big, did not bother me.

I have no issues with the forum changing, just that I am more of a spectator to these kinds of things. Only thing I do not like about the forums in general is the emoticons, but that is remedied by just not using them.

Re: How do you want the forum to look

I thought something themed like this would be a nice background for Lit forum.

Re: How do you want the forum to look

Tue Sep 04, 2012 7:04 am

And perhaps, a worded one for the RP forum. Or should they be swapped around. A blank slate for the RP forum and words for the lit?

Re: How do you want the forum to look

Wed Sep 05, 2012 10:14 am

Text would better fit Lit, yes. For RPs, literacy is more of the method, not the objective. Anyway, that can wait until it's brought up in the respective forums for better discussion.

On topic: I agree with the idea for using characters on the sides to replace the current two. Maybe one from Grim and another from PPGD, as they seem to draw in more attention... Blossom and Mimi?

Re: How do you want the forum to look

Wed Sep 05, 2012 10:49 am

That's why I suggested six characters. 2 characters from each comic.

Re: How do you want the forum to look

Wed Sep 05, 2012 10:54 am

... lol

I actually forgot we have other comics.

Re: How do you want the forum to look

Wed Sep 05, 2012 11:58 am

I know. :P

Anyway, the suggestion I put up seems okay.

GT - I'd say definitely Grim and Mimi.
PPGD - Bell and...Blossom, maybe Dexter I guess.
SB - Hansel and either Bo or Ginger and/or licorice.

Re: How do you want the forum to look

For RP You could do themes, like Robots, wizards, Orcs, Vampires, Superheroes and the like

I also have another idea, What if we put a vote for what you want as a theme stickie in every subforum, like get a general majority on one idea and go with it, then we could even have a few ppl do some art based off the final descision for the forums and let people pick the art that fits best or is the best
