Though I suspect that not many are using this forum yet, I imagine it will soon be bussing! 🙂
But we need to make it super nice to look at and easy to use. Therefore you can prepare for two things that will happen:
1) If you have ze interwebs skillz and are good at doing webby stuff, or someone who is and don’t mind doing it for absolutely free, then let me, Makk or Davhek know – it would be a great help for getting this further;
2) We need a logo and based on the logo a set of graphical identity (which colours do we use prevalent etc. etc.) – most likely we will have a small competition on this, so if you like to mess about with logos and pictures, do go ahead and start working on it. It will of course have to do with “Eternal Dawn” and reflect that in a nice manner.

I’m a graphic designer and hubby is an Art Director so maybe I can take a look at the logo thing.. and maybe get him to help me as I do all the time xD
I probably have more time to try something once my spring holiday starts, which is next wednesday. Looking forward to see the end result for the website 🙂 No web skillz tho!April 18, 2014 at 06:44 #1912
I have the awesomness skillz to cheer, and no skillz in webby or artisticky stuff.
So I’ll use my powers:
Go Designers Go! 1 – 2 – 3 A new logo we need! 1 – 2 – 3 On a new site we need to be!April 18, 2014 at 12:36 #1913AnonymousInactive
I have some very basic skills, as I was telling Dav last night. Nothing codey but I’m good with tweaking and getting colours, etc. to a good place. 🙂 And can possibly Google codey questions/beg on Twitter if need be.
As for the colours. Light background, dark text. Always. And something warm and inviting for the colour scheme. Pale oranges/yellows/hints of blue/green maybe. Dawn colours. 🙂April 18, 2014 at 13:36 #1914AnonymousInactive
believe I mentioned I have dreamweaver and know how to tweak it when it is wrong. Have run a couple of websites for a while too.April 18, 2014 at 13:43 #1915AnonymousInactive
I have a friend whose job is website designer, I could beg him for help if you like 🙂April 21, 2014 at 09:08 #1917AnonymousInactive
Just a tryout, nothing special but we need to start somewhere.April 21, 2014 at 09:19 #1918AnonymousInactive
so pretty! I like it!April 21, 2014 at 09:24 #1919
I think that looks really nice Zam. We were talking about your Sig last night on mumbles. We thought that looked great as well. A little combination of those two and a few other things might really hit the spotApril 21, 2014 at 10:01 #1920AnonymousInactive
Well any ideas, suggestions, colors etc… are welcome its make it a bit easier in someway.
Ahh also need the right sizes of the header and so.April 21, 2014 at 10:01 #1921AnonymousInactive
Beautiful! Maybe just change the colours to reflect dawn colours?April 21, 2014 at 10:21 #1922
I am rubbish at this sort of graphical stuff, as most of us are. We can tell you what we like and don’t like but leave it to us and it would be a stick man with a sun rising over from behind a mountain in the background.
The mist you have placed behind the logo gives it a mystical quality I like, and that hint of light peering up give the dawn effect without the cliché dawn part. I love it.
I am not sure I want a dark themed website sight though cause when I troll other gaming forums seems all the Youngsters have dark themes, it feel young. Of course we need to attract the younger crowd to keep the community alive as us 46 year old ladies would perish without the protection of youth in the games. So that is just my thoughts, leave it as it is – or completely change it. The point it the work is amazing and in awe a bit of how people do this sort of creative thing.April 21, 2014 at 12:04 #1923AnonymousInactive

My thoughts. 🙂 Just a little lighter and maybe a smudge of yellow in there. But leave the logo! Adore everything about it. 😀 What fonts are they?April 21, 2014 at 13:36 #1924April 21, 2014 at 13:45 #1925
If you’re interested, I can recycle the WW forums (extensions, portal, and the two dark & light themes I designed), though that would require a real host, there’s very little that can be done on Forumatic even on a paid plan (which are quite pricey by the way).
Edit: Dark theme here if you’ve never seen it: http://www.thewhitewolves.co.uk/forums/portal.php?style=8
