Site Backgrounds On Hand

on January 21st 2015, 6:01 pm
I did a little looking around and found a few backgrounds that could potentially suit the site though I feel if we all pool our thoughts we can find something we all can more or less like if we do indeed want to change the site background.

Here are some I have right now: (Still Experimenting and Looking)

Original/Current: https://i.servimg.com/u/f56/13/83/14/41/79057210.jpg

Option 1.1: https://i.servimg.com/u/f38/18/24/97/24/kingdo11.jpg

Option 1.2: https://i.servimg.com/u/f38/18/24/97/24/kingdo12.jpg

Option 2: https://i.servimg.com/u/f38/18/24/97/24/kingdo10.jpg

Option 3: https://i.servimg.com/u/f38/18/24/97/24/birth_17.jpg

Was wondering how people feel about this kinda thing and their thoughts in a more topicy manner.

*fetches a monocle*

Example of one here. <----

1.1 would be my choice and here's why. I feel that it finally adds a little color to the site. For so long we have all grown numb to the background being this black hole (with the white design accenting that of course) that gives this awesome site zero personality. I think 1.1 brings the right attitude to the table and would lighten the scenery up a bit. Plus I'm a sucker for blue anyway.

I like option 2. Quite frankly, I don't have a specific reason as to why. I just like the way it looks.

I also kinda like 3, but I'm not really a fan of how the one side is all dark. Maybe if the gradient went negative instead of fading to black..? I dunno...

But option 2 currently holds my vote. :3

1.1 or 2, 1.2 just seems too small. My vote goes towards 1.1 though. I agree with Leo.

Since we have a it between 1.1 and 2 how about today we try out 1 and tomorrow we try out 2 about the same time.

I will put up option 1.2 on the test website located here. <---

I feel like if the first one was a little more concentrated the picture would look less stretched out.

If you want the current background to fit better with the site, you should also change the banner to match it, color-wise. The banner is really bright and sticks out on the generally dark and black site, and not really in a good way, IMO.

Still deciding on the background hun stick to the paid gigs.

Ideally they would match though and that can be figured out after we have the background figured out.

Alrighty re-sized to better fit the site better and exhibit less of the bad pixilation. Looks like the first might work better, does anyone have any additional options, post either way : o.

I don't think you understood me, lol.

When you make an aesthetic change to the site, you should make sure it matches with what is already established or change the whole site. Changing something based on whether it looks good independently of the site will make it clash.

The site has a color neutral style. Adding a background with color messes that up. The entire site should be change in accordance with the new color scheme, which in the end may not work out and find a different background works better, or to a much lesser extent, add a banner that matches it.

Site design is dynamic.

Since I did say it, I figured I should find some options (if you plan on keeping the same theme).

Thank you for the suggestions.

What does everyone else think of the options so far?

I don't feel that Shirou's options give the site life in terms of color...sure it changes the pattern, but only slightly...yet when you stick to the same color scheme it still looks the same and does not give the site a fresh NEW look that it desperately needs.

My opinion is still 1.1 or another background that would give actual color to this site. Blue or green, something to add some life to it.

You'd likely need to change the banner, as well, to make it match.

Also, the color of the forum itself would help contribute to the color scheme, but that requires a bit more effort than finding a background.
