Suggesting a background color for the FFXIV forum.Follow

Seeing as the whole trailer for FFXIV and the title screen itself have some hues of white in them because of how shiny everything is, too, I suggest we depict the official background color for the Final Fantasy XIV Online forums as white.

Anyone have another suggestion? Or would you like it that way?

eh, white is painful on the eyes during late night forum wanderings. I'd vote for something less so, like dark green and a lighter shade of that dark green, but pale greens, not something rediculous like Chartreuse, Greenyellow, or Lawngreen

Hmm, how about mostly white with some darker green hues thrown in for the borders and such to give the forums a more natural look? It would maybe look a bit like the color patterns on the walls in Ru'Aun Gardens in our old world, FFXI.

Yes, I know I am the first to post out of topic stuff, but, after all, FFXI is related to FFXIV. Can't deny that.

Pikko, Blue and Dark Blue is the FFXI background color scheme, there needs to be some differentiation, if enough people like the idea. If not, well, we can stay all blue again.

It might look nice, just need a bit more white, not sure if on the letters only because of readability. But the admins can toy around with color schemes with these 3 colors and make something nice come out, I bet!

Okay, it's way more camo/olive/darkforest than it is mint and moss, but it's still a pretty scheme. Smiley: nod

I think a white, grey, and green theme would suit this well. I have a feeling that's not what people are looking for, but it's what I thought of when the green topic was brought up. ^^

I don't particularly care about the background colors, but the color difference between threads that are read, as opposed to having new messages, really needs to be altered. Its hard to tell (short of mentally remembering what the list looked like the last time you checked) what you've read and what's new.

If Jinte's green monster induced blindness on some forum readers, I can't even start to imagine what your horrendous mix would do. Induce Time Spirals and the end of the universe? Someone please, post a US banner, it sounds very similar to what croy is suggesting.

Well, back on our idea for green or white, or both together, can we try some darker greens and also the alternative of white background with dark green borders with black letters on the white?

It's just that the orange forums idea is way off, and sounds terrible, I can envision some kind of mustard and diarrhea-like colors just to differentiate the forum from WOW's soily brown colors?

The flourishes surrounding the Online part of the logo, as well as most of the logo itself, are orange. I'd say a primarily white/orange theme with hints of blue.
