So, as most of you will know in a little over a month it will be the forum's third birthday. This year we shall be giving the forum a new lease of life and a lick of paint, obviously the graphics designers will be doing this as I'm useless with digital graphics. Razz

I've decided that the forum's layout ideas and colors won't be selctively left to the staff team, as that's unfair.

So, we'd like to know what YOU want. Please bring forward any ideas, color schemes etc.

Usually we have two colors as you've seen in previous layouts: black&red, black&purple, purple&white and then the current colors - red&cream. In recent layouts we've tried to stray away from the cliché black of metal forums thus keeping our orginality as a forum, but if you want black then we'll have black.

What more can I say? Let's go! Smile

I do love black and red but I think it could be too clichéd, like you say Razz

Purple and white sounds pretty awesome Very Happy I'd love to see some examples of the colour schemes.

I love black, but I don't like how it looks in forums, i like lights colours, in contrast of dark colours for the texts

So I think it should be sth like a cream colour + another colour (my ideas are too dark so it's better if i keep them for myself, i trust you guys)

Hm... I like that we've managed to take such an unconventional colour scheme and made it work with the current layout, so it'd be good to have another odd-couple theme. Vanessa, I love the idea of encorperating an emerald green into it, that has the potential to look really cool :3

Or maybe we could mix black with a few different bright colours.

E.g. Vanessa's signature or my blog background, where you have purple, blue, white and pink with black silhouettes. Smile

I've made a mock-up of how the forum could look in green & white using some old graphics I had lying around, it's pretty good so far:
http://i52.tinypic.com/2q83n6r.jpg

Should I do one in purple, pink, white and black?

Hmm I see what you mean Razz but then you've got a bit of a darker green there.

I like the pink/purple but I think we need a dark purple, or it's gonna be too girly Razz

(sorry I'm just being picky here, I love the designs ^_^)

How's this shade? It's not any darker but it's more blue and less red, so theoretically less girly.

I've had a look at all of them, the purple and lilac ones look similar to the layout we previously had before the current scheme we have here. I think the green and white is very "in-your-face" if you will, I liked the idea of it when I read it but seeing makes me second guess. Coming around the the black and green.. I'm with Todd it looks a bit ick, like bionic goo or something.

Maybe I'm just being too picky, I'm sorry for this.

Can I suggest a color? Maybe various shades of blue? Like water or the sky or ice or something else? Razz

Also,re-reading Sophie's comment the pink will give off an over feminine edge. That's one of the reasons I voted to change from our purple/white layout we've had before.

I'll be quiet now. XD

Yeah shades of blue with white or black would be awesome Very Happy you could have some kind of water or ice theme like you say. Smile

Some ideas:

Or you could even go for a blue/orange combo and have fire and ice like my signature Smile

Liking all the ideas so far, but we have already had purple, so I don't know whether that would be a good idea. How about Dark blue and black? Smile
