10 Years of WolfQuest: Forum Anniversary

Post by Neamara » Tue Jun 13, 2017 1:31 am

Fun fact: While the community forums started/the software was installed on June 12th 2007, it didn't open to the public until July 25th!

In celebration of the community forums' tenth anniversary, we're looking once again to the community for your input! Please vote for your favourite shade of lavender from these four samples:
#1 #E6E6FA | Votes: 0
#2 #C5A4DB | Votes: 14
#3 #C9AFF0 | Votes: 5
#4 #B378D3 | Votes: 4
30-Jun-2017 The votes have been recounted. The results are now more accurate.


Anniversary Avatars

If you're interested and have some time to spare, feel free to submit ten-year-themed avatars for the gallery! The deadline for submissions is July 23rd.
The 10-year Anniversary Avatar should:
  1. Be appropriate.
  2. Say 'WolfQuest' or '10-year anniversary' somewhere in the avatar.
  3. The final submission should be no more than 100x100 pixels. It is fine to work on larger canvases.

I wouldn't mind something in the direction of light pink or lavender; I feel like it'd stand out nicely as it's not similar to any other colours we use or have used in the past. I'd prefer to not see the orange return, both for originality's sake and because I personally wasn't a fan of the colour.

Otherwise, something bright like lime could be considered.. but I feel like that would become obnoxious as soon as the novelty wears off.

I personally do not see why lime is so opposed. But since we have some ~ugly~ blue color scheme going on that doesn't match the forum color scheme at all, then I suppose a light lavender is more appropriate. :squirrel:
(I have strong opinions about the usergroup colors if you can't tell.)

Since we'll need to update the rank badge for the group, we might as well offer people the chance to get creative. So, if you're interested and have some time to spare, feel free to submit some avatars for the gallery!

Keeping in line with the theme used last time, 10-year anniversary avatars should:
  1. be appropriate
  2. say 'WolfQuest' or '10-year anniversary' somewhere in the avatar

I also think lavender would make a nice color, although the hex code I sent with my suggestion is too light...oops

Agreed, but about the colors, I suggest
blue and/or pink. :)

the only issue with blue is that we already have dark blue for UotM, and cyan for Former Report Team so it might get hard to tell the names apart with similar colors

Lavender is a popular choice; seems we'll be going with that. Of these four samples, which one do you most like?

#1 #E6E6FA
#2 #C5A4DB
#3 #C9AFF0
#4 #B378D3

Votes will be tracked in the first post. There's still time to submit avatars for the gallery, by the way. :)

Chrome makes it delightfully easy to play with the visuals of this webpage, so for those who are having a hard time visualising it as a username colour: option 1/option 2/option 3/option 4

My own preference goes out to the second or third colour. The first one is too pale for my liking; the fourth looks good but doesn't look as cheerful as the second and third do. I think I like option #2 the best out of them.
