    This is where everyone can vote on what colors they'd like for the upcoming Fan Force board customization. This might also help the banner designer(s) fit their banner ideas with board colors. Here's examples of each style:

    [hl=gold]Yellow/Orange[/hl]
    [hl=steelblue]Blue/Gray[/hl]
    [hl=forestgreen]Green/Mint[/hl]
    [hl=red]Red/Pink[/hl]
    [hl=indigo]Purple/Lavender [/hl]
    [hl=black]Black/White[/hl]
    [hl=teal]Teal/Sky Blue [/hl]

    If you'd like to see a list of all avaiable colors to post your own suggestions, [link=http://boards.theforce.net/Informational_Threads/b10313/4042371/?1]Here's the complete list.[/link]

    Red/Black

    Black/White would be #2 for me.

    yeah, we're actually more of a peach, but the banner is predominantly yellow, so it still works, I guess.

    Luminara Jade, if you think you voted for Green/Mint Instead of Blue/Gray, we'll keep that in mind when calculating votes.

    Okay that green/mint is eye-stroke inducing, Black and White is certainly servicable but a bit bland dont you think? The same goes for blue/gray. Why not darkred and black or something like that. (I personally like the purple/lavendar but I realise thats not for everyone) Stand up against mediocraty <sp?> people!

    Perhaps if we could change the board to these colors for a day and see them. A square is one thing but the entire board is another!

    Darkred and black would be very eye-straining.

    Anyway, these color options are just a start. If people really want Blue/Gray, there are many variations, like:

    [hl=steelblue]Blue/Gray[/hl]
    or
    [hl=navy]Blue/Gray[/hl]
    or
    [hl=royalblue]Blue/Gray[/hl]

    The same goes for all the colors combos. Mainly, what we need is a dark color contrasted with a light color.

    Hmmm. Test driving the color schemes may be the way to go. PERFECT!

    In the interest of equal time, and to be fair to Axia, here's what Dark Red and Black would look like:

    [hl=darkred]Dark Red/Black[/hl]

    [sarcasm]I'm sorry, Axia, you're right, that looks much better![/sarcasm]

    On the other had, maybe a Crimson and Black:

    [hl=crimson]Crimson/Black[/hl]

    or good ol' Red and Black:

    [hl=red]Red/Black[/hl]

    I like it even more now, definitely not the red and black though. I like the crimson or dark red, it reminds me of blood and decay, things dying or dead.

    couldn't we do it with the background color being black and the writing being dark red?
