This is something I had created for a different game that never got used.

I might create something more simple and familiar for the FH forum. Bring back some gold and warm essences. Bring back the nostalgia.

I just miss the pictures on the top of the old forum and how it changed when you refreshed it, also the map usage on the side to show how many people were in each map, that was nice. I like the colors of this site and the layout is fine too.

Ooooh, yes!
The forum is by no means horrible, but it does look rather... plain. Not to say that it's not nice. (: It is. There's just a lot more lovin' that could be put into it, I think.

I quite like the idea of a savannah-themed site & I think it would tie in with Feral-Heart's "aesthetic," haha.
It might be kinda neat to put some slightly more vibrant colors on the site, like red-oranges/golds/greens/blues. I could see some tropical plants perhaps coming into play in certain places, as well. I have a vision guys

Although, this is just my vision on what I'd like the site to look like!
There are so many wonderful things that you could do. It'd be really neat to try to experiment with ideas, though!
Please say hello if you see me in-game!

Just keep in mind if you add too much sparkle it'll glitch out & lag horridly on internet exploder.  I meant explorer.
Sorry i'm evil, its not on purpose..

or in general will look terrible.

for this forum we should keep it simple. that way we could maybe i don't know up the pixel limit on avatars, or something outlandish.

Would be nice if we could come up with a design that gets rid of all of these horrid dots in people's names and around their profile. Mmhhhh.

or at the very least finish the current one so that the old site theme isn't leaking everywhere.

nice. thank you so much for the example, it'll come in handy. i like the look of this, but i'm not sure it would work- it looks really sleek, but personally i don't think it gives off a very welcoming vibe if that makes sense? i love it, but i agree with Azura, i personally prefer the idea of a design more similar to Lioden (as an example) with the darker yellows and oranges with a lighter background. a lighter background would be a bold change since it's been darker for forever, but i honestly think it would look nice and give it a more "fresh" feel to it. warm colors are the key if you ask me.

i took a sip of somethin' poisoned but i'll hold on tight

There is no list in regard to numbering what needs to be changed. Yet.
As I've said numerous times before, a lot of things are still in discussion and if we are to change the forum's theme, we will have to play around with colours before coming to a final agreement on a design to implement. Or, coming up with a selective few designs and giving them forward to the community to vote on.

There is no list until we've come to a decision on what is coming up in the next patch as a priority and what can wait until the next patch due to needing more time to make sure everything will run smoothly.
