I don't see these colors as intense at all. I see it as bright and happy XD

I've tried DA so many times, no one cares about me though lol. I'm not important enough on there. And I considered doing it at Tumblr, but there's really no way they could contact me/us correctly.

It's all reblog, hearts, or a small note.

It's a step above Twitter, but not as great as a forum. I just checked out my journals. lol I made so many different ones asking for help, but no one commented but you.

it would also make sense to keep blue because Korra's from the water tribe :p

Not just the colors, but anything else that the majority may find. There has to be more reasons that some members aren't staying other then not liking the colors.

maybe its because they think the forum is active by seeing recent posts but then realize there's only two members? XD

honestly, i dont know. all i can say is that when i was looking for forums to join, i tried to find forums that were exclusive to the particular fanbase i was following or because they had easy, free illegal content. i never made a conscious decision based on colors of the forum.

That is a possibility. Either way, if you find something that could be tweaked or does not quite work, or anything in between, just tell me. You're not going to hurt my feelings if you say something looks bad.

Just don't say it sucks and that's it. Tell me why it sucks and what I could do to make it better.

Also about background wallpaper. I found this on one forum for instance.

http://i49.servimg.com/u/f49/14/69/23/87/common10.png

It's used for the small bars on the category. Go to the homepage and look where all the titles are (like Forum Announcements, The Last Airbender, The Legend of Korra, Off Topic, ect...) So instead of being just one blue it would look a little more engaging perhaps.

We can also make wallpapers for the border sections. The blue we have right now is one, but I was just testing it. Not really liking it too much. So if you got ideas for interesting wallpapers (ones that are like patterns and the such) throw them here!

What do you think about the Avatar style buttons I made? The boxes won't be seen because I will make the background white. Just have a different color right now so I can attach them without gaps. Easier to see gaps with a different layout color.

Right, so it's just going to be the text. A lot of forums do it, so I figured I'd test it out.

Like I said a lot of forums here do it, so I'm sure people won't be that confused. I'm adding a small black line underneath it after it's all done.

Mostly what I do is go to the Support Forums under review and then check out peoples websites.

http://help.forumotion.com/f60-forum-reviews

The site will be the earth icon image in their profile.

Yeah I already went there and to be honest, the only one I liked that actually got a good score was this one: http://www.codinghelp.org/

keep in mind i skipped around but...I don't know I remember this forum getting a poor review and I saw some of the ones that got 'good' and I dont think those were that good.

I also have a question: is there anyway to get the wallpaper and the outermost box to be the same color? I honestly think having one solid background color is the best.

There you go with the blues again :P

See? They don't have the links in boxes or anything, it's just text. I know what you mean though about the reviews not even seeming to be worth much because of how different they can be.

As for this forum, they just used the skin and didn't do much tweaking to the forum at all. So I'm surprised it got a good score.

Right that's what I meant, and what I was doing. Or at least trying to do. The reason it's so big is because of the search bar thing at the far right corner. I need to figure out how to take it down so that it won't look so weird with the bottom gap.
