[Tally] User of the Month: New Colour

Post by Neamara » Sun Jan 11, 2015 7:26 am

  • Update:
Suggestions are now closed. Thank you to everyone who participated!
Make sure you cast your votes in the poll: http://wolfquest.org/bb/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=76034

-- Original Post --

As suggested by you -- the WolfQuest Community -- User of the Month, the previously banana-flavoured treat of the past, will be returning in the not-too-distant future! Keeping in tune with community involvement, it will be undergoing a couple of aesthetic changes. So, what input can you help us with?

The first phase of reinstating UotM will involve choosing a new group colour as per request.
Because this is a reboot, so long as you meet the criteria to become a candidate, everyone stands a chance of being chosen for the position even if they were chosen in the first batch. The moderators have agreed that the green name is enough recognition, so we are bowing out of the possibility of being elected.

The first phase will be tallying colours for the new usergroup. All you have to do is post a desired colour. If someone has posted a colour you like, mention it in your post and it'll be counted towards the tally being charted. 1-2 weeks from today, we will lock this thread to make way for the second phase involving a poll with the most popular colour choices. From there, it’s up to the community as a whole to vote for the final colour to represent User of the Month.

You may optionally use BBcode to give a preview of the colour you’re proposing. All polled suggestions will have a preview of the colour. E.g., sapphire, mint, etc. A great resource you can use for this purpose are utilities such as http://www.colorpicker.com/ or http://www.colorhexa.com/. A neat hex colour finder and naming utility: http://chir.ag/projects/name-that-color

Enjoy!

Yes this is great!

We could always keep the banana (#FFBF00 shown here)

A bright pink? (#BF40BF)

Or this, a purply blue? (#8000BF)

I've loved this color forever. It's #BFFF00 . What kind of green would you call that?
I might try and see if I can get some custom colors, so I will suggest some more later.

Hmmm

This color perhaps? It is #8040FF

00FFBF is a nice teal, it will really spice up a username

Kind of a silly question, but can we suggest custom colors, too?

Of course- we provided colour pickers on the first post for that very reason. ;)

I think Sony meant that the UotM could suggest the color so it chages each month. I like that idea but it seems rather difficult.

Ah, all right. I'd thought so, but Koa's post confused me, heh.

I- actually hadn't thought about that; but now that I do, it does seem like an interesting idea, but yeah, a tad troublesome.

I'm honestly glad to see that stuff is happening on the forums again :D
I'm for soft/pale pink (FF80FF) just for the lulz or purple (8000BF)...

Ahh I was just about to suggest something very similar to that. Purple sure does seem like a good choice. And- well, pink would certainly be interesting as well.

For the purple, I was thinking maybe something a bit lighter? Such as
#AD61FF, for instance.

Something blueish would look good too- not as bright as the WolfQuest Report Team's color, but more like
#3C7DC7. I suppose that doesn't really stand out, though.

I honestly prefer the purples, blues, and greens as color choices :D

I vote on Koa's for a few reasons. It is like a mix of Moderator and the old UotM. So, it makes you feel even more special to have both colors :D Also, because purple and pink are kinda "feminine". Since this website is targeted for younger audiences, I don't think a 14 year old boy would want a pink name. :D

Or this cool red? (FF4000)
