As the original BlueHarvest.net will be closing its doors as far as new posts are concerned at the end of the month. This Forum is hopefully going to continue to give Star Wars and other Science Fiction fans somewhere to post in the future.

Thank for the work Bassman! I have a few suggestions and I seem to be unable to create a new topic in the Problems/Suggestions forum.

First of all, can we change the layout of the forum? Can we make it more... BlueHarvesty? I mean the colors, and the overall design. I don't mean to copy it completely, but little things to make it more cosy.

I also think we must have a Games & Quizzes forum for silly forum games. I am ready to help in any way possible. I also can work on a new logo, if it's possible to change it.

Permissions should be sorted now. I wanted to get something up and running before playing with the format of the place.

I want to change the colour scheme, but finding an overall skin for the Forum is the easiest way, so I want to explore that first. There is a facility to use images on the Forum, so if either of you can supply some, I'll see what I can do.

May I suggest adding some sort of picture in the background?
Something like this maybe? (Obviously it would need to be done properly in higher definition).

Il like the idea of having something suitable in the background.

I am still trying to find a basic skin I can utilize and colour to make it similar to the old forum. If there was a smaller gap between logo and forum stuff on this one it might make a good basis.

May have to work from a plain colour one as a start position.

The forum looks much much better. If it possible, I can suggest the right colours for text and stuff:

text: #817468
background: #f9e8d2
link colour: #6699cc
rollover link: #3366cc

and here's how I think the logo should look like. What do you think?



and here's the logo:



EDIT: the forum crops the picture. Click on it and select "View image" or "copy image location". The Forum does not allow me to post links.

EDIT 2: I also think we should somehow make emoticons from BH available. It is possible to import emoticons?

Had a very frustrating few hours trying to get a decent colour scheme and a centred image at the top of the main page. I have yet to figure out how to get rid of the blue round the sections of the forum as it seems to be obtained from a link which I have yet to find on the site it originates from.

Is there any way I can help you? Maybe you can give me a password so that I can look at the forum settings? I have a bit of experience in design so maybe I can help. Or maybe not. Worth a shot. But if you don't feel like it it's totally fine.

Personally I don't like what I see now. It was almost perfect before (when I wrote my previous post), but now it's wide again and feels different.

I am sorry if I sound too negative or critical, all I want is to help to recreate the cosy atmosphere of our site.

Started with another skin. Reduced the width of the header you did (thanks for that) so that the forum width was reduced. Disposed of some backgrounds. Changed Buttons and colours. Is that any better?

It is better, although the Forum is still too wide. I think the Forum should look like it looks on my picture.



it wasn't perfect, but it was close

As far as I can see, the width thing only applies to this topic! I did check a few! l did edit the CSS, which I couldn't do on my PS3. I had to resort to using my Wii U! I need to put in the proper colour codes, which I can do on the PS3.

I think the forum looks amazing, almost the same at the orginal BH. Just a few tweaks here and there, and I think it will be good to go..

Suggestion: we should have a place where people can post there fanfic/ RPG under each topic.


thoughts?

Not sure how much use Fan Fiction/RPG would get in each section. I am happy to put an overall section up with the two options within in it and see how it goes.

Master, I figured out the width thing. There were wide attachments in this post, so the Forum made allowances for it. I don't think anything could be done about it.

Well I can put some of my story ideas in the Fan Fic area to use up as I'm always writing, if you'd like.

Also this forum looks great and thank you for making the avatar use so easy! I finally got a picture up on here (it's Dream from my glass/ceramic collection).

The section is there for anyone to use. If you have some of your writing you want to share, please feel free to post it.

As for the Avatar thing, that is just how this type of free forum is set up. I have not had to do anything to that.

I know it's for everyone, I was just saying that if you want me to put some stories in, I'll do it. I didn't mean to suggest anything.  Embarassed

Sorry, it was my roundabout way of saying that you should post something there.
