Another layout topic

Post by Morgan Landry on 12/29/2014, 9:53 am

Okay so since the opinions on the new layout are so split we're gonna go with something different. Please post in this topic what you guys would like to see in the new layout (including colors, header, icons, etc). If you like an idea somebody posted, please upvote that post so we can see which ideas are particularly popular (this saves us the bother of doing a poll for each idea).

Though since so many people seem to have an issue with the purple (whispers it's blue gray), this is also a topic for a poll; please vote here if you would like to keep this blue winter-themed layout until we get another design, or if you want to go with the original gray one.

I personally find this a great layout. Only difference I would suggest is a different picture for the new topics because it really is hard to notice

No problem ^^

But to everyone who wants to say something about how the icons are hard to make out: we're working on it. Please comment on something else ^^

I personally found the gray background easier to read text on but that is just me, so I would prefer the gray one.

I really like the old one, even though this one is very pretty! I'm sorry I just liked the other one better, I don't really know why. Maybe just a different color scheme but the same layout as the other one?

It seems I didn't express myself in the right way, sorry for that. I'll try to phrase it better xD

The votes are split, therefore we go neither for the old layout nor for the current one. We're going for a brand new squeaky clean one and would like to know what you guys want on it. That's what this topic is about. Tell us which colors you'd like, which pictures, which actors -- of you want any actors -- etc.

I'd like the old background colour please, if at all possible and if it does not inconvenience anyone. That was easiest for me to read.

I honestly would prefer no actors from the movies. I feel like it misrepresents us. After all, the cannon here isn't the movie plots, it's the book plots. Maybe if we used the books instead or something?

She explained in the first layout topic that the people that she asked to make the header can't use drawing or animated things. it has to be real life or it's a no go. So it was either the actors from the movies or find someone else.

And we've gone down that road, the old layout didn't exactly capture Camp Half-Blood either.

However, on the topic of the movies.

I would just like to say that the graph forum I'm on does graphic headers. They don't work with drawings, else I would've sent Viria or Burdge Bug a message asking if I could use their work for the layout of this site; no they work with pictures, stills, HD images. I had to get actors. So where do I get them? The Percy Jackson movies. I actually spent a crap ton of time finding large HD pictures of them that'd fit here, the graph people are picky and thats good because the better the images, the better the header. I'm not exactly fond of the movies either but it wouldn't exactly have "captured" CHB if I had put pictures of say, Ashley Benson or Alex Pettyfer, right? Because they have nothing to do with the Percy Jackson universe

Double Post yes, but direct quote explanation is better then summarized explanation.

Okay I love this blue gray. I LOVE IT. It's stimulating and on my devices, the white sticks out BEAUTIFULLY. It's a beautiful layout.  Who cares if the icons are actors.  It's the same fandom.  I can look past the super attractive actors and see how great the banner is. It's adorable.
But since we're changing it, I chose blue.

Ok, I've suggested this to Morgan through chat and Lila seems pleased about the idea as well, I just thought that I should share it here.

There is a way to actually let users choose a layout/theme they want. It basically is a dropdown list containing a list of all possible themes/layouts available in the site. Don't worry it is possible in forumotion and I have shown Morgan and Lila a site example. This way, those who prefer using the old theme would be able to use it at the same time those who prefers using this new theme use this just by clicking on the desired theme in the dropdown list. This way, everyone would be happy and satisfied.

Currently, Lila said that she'll be researching on how to do it for the code is still unknown to us. So I think this is something those who's missing the old layout should look out for.
