View Full Version : [OT] Forum colors

I like these new colors much more but isn't that orange bar above out of place?

I'm testing out some different color schemes for the jkii.net forums this week, and this weekend. Actually, all the colors come from the above image... obviously including the orange... which allows for the flow of the image colors through the rest of the forum...

That orange was tossed in to spice it up, but I dulled it back down and took that out this morning.

I'm also working on a real "chamber" looking set/template, but it might be a bit bold for people's tastes, and I haven't decided on the final colors for it yet either. Here's a snap of a more spiced up chamber oriented version...


When I work on a forum design, all colors for the forum come directly from the main logo used for the forum.

I'm sure I'll work on one or two more potential designs this weekend as well.

Keep the feedback coming though. It's good to have.

go the chamber one. :) seriously

I like this blue-grey combo very much :)

Chamber wins all........ except black and red.

That chamber one is nice. I also like this one a ton better than the one that was up before, with the bright orange and such.

Can we make some? Just for fun and send them in?

Sure... you guys can try your own hands at it... and send them to me at aristotle@lfnetwork.com ... I'll look over all suggestions

Best to take a snapshot .jpg image of what you've whipped up, then just send that over... either send it to that addy or PM me the image via the forums.

As I said, i'll be working out the final design this weekend, so try to have any pictures of color schemes or logos to me by Sunday.

Who knows.. perhaps your logo or color scheme could be the one used for the "Premier Jedi Knight II" Forums... never hurts to try.

Good luck.

Very snazzy, Aristotle. The blue, gray and beige accent this forum excellently!

As for the carbon-freezing chamber one... The orange bar looks out of place, and the gray on the New Post?/# of Posts/Last Post sections looks a bit out of place placed next to tha nice red.

I love the banner though. :)

I definitely like this new color scheme. The previous black and red color scheme reminded me of color schemes used on countless other easily forgettable amateur Jedi Knight clan pages. (I mean that in a good way, really.)

This new scheme is much better, easy on the eyes.

Although I think the top banner is a little bit on the large size. Takes up a big chunk of screen real estate. Reduce the banner height by about 30% and it would be perfect.

Resurrecting this thread, I wanted to ask Aristotle something...

Is that new text in the banner supposed to appear like that, or is it a graphic distortion?

01-18-2002, 08:48 PM
It's the result of many distortions and over half a dozen layers of text actually... took a while to get the exact colors of the orange/yellow mixture and saber colors for the "ii".. then there was the issue of making it looked carved into the metal, and creating drips of hot metal...

Seems to do the trick though.

I like it, even if it doesn't really 'go' with the background. If we ever get a foliage shot, you should put it on there. Or put it on a a grayer tone.

However, I love it. :)

i think the blue/grey looks the best... maybe this discussion warrents something such as a poll...

01-19-2002, 02:37 AM
Good job, Aristotle. Now do the JK.net forums!
