PostSubject: Site Layout Contest!   Mon Jul 16, 2012 8:17 am

Although a contest would be nice, doing everything for this site yourself is a lot of work, so think of it as something to work on together. You're free to do it on your own though.

SO! The makeover contest! Before entering read everything here. It's important. >:U I divided it up into sections. There really isn't a lot though.
And do not animate anything unless the section says to.

Color Scheme

PLEASE be careful of the colors. I don't want something dark, I don't want something bright. It should be as easy to read the text as this. Also, you are not designing a skin. You are designing graphics, for this site only. You're free to start your own forum to test it out, but don't publish it as a skin, we want this site to be as unique as possible, which is hard enough since it's a Warriors forum.
I'm fine with taking care of the colors if you take care of the graphics (and the colors within the graphics). If you decide to do this, try to make the graphics close to the same color in general. Something lighter than this, but nothing as bright as this. Good colors are dark green, blue, purple or really anything you feel comfortable reading off of. The current color scheme is brown, and brown isn't too welcoming a color. . . . Choose more friendly colors if you can.

Navigation Menu

In my opinion the navigation menu is the hardest. You are going to have to make a Home, Gallery, FAQ, Search, Members, Groups, Profile, Extras, Inbox, Register, Log In, and Log Out buttons that look good next to each other. (You don't have to make a new message button, but you can if you want to. Otherwise I'll handle it.)

Banner

The banner is what welcomes members to the site. It is what they look at when they first come here. It should be readable, original, attractive and have some sort of cat on it.

Who is Online?

You don't have to make this. It can be animated, ours currently is, and a lot of other sites' are. It doesn't have to say "Who is Online?" It doesn't have to say anything at all. If you do decide to make it, it should have some sort of cat on it and be smaller than this.

New Post/Locked Topic/Announcement, Etc. Icons

These are also optional, to be honest I like the ones we currently have. They should be the same sizes as our current ones. And be cats. And be original.

If you have an entry for any of these sections, post it here.
That's about it, if you think of anything tell me.

Non-transparent is fine, personally I don't have much preference at least for the banner. :3

@Shard: FINE, maybe if it's amazing. :P
