The portal looks pretty good at the moment though there are just a couple of things that could do with being changed in my opinion. The colours used in the boxes for resistance news, the top and bottom should be of the same colour if you can find a colour that goes well with the external links colour. The name of the video would look better in white or green. The same for titles in the content boxes to the left the "Characters" etc would look better in green. The layout of the portal is fine and other than my opinions on some of the colours it is good to go. --KindredPhantom 05:46, 17 September 2008 (CDT)
I agree with Kindred, but with the exception of a few color critiques, the portal, IMO, seems ready to go live. --FH14 9:10, 17 September 2008 (EST)
I'm all up for suggestions about a color that would work with the external links, but believe me when I say it's not easy to find one that works. Without actually forcing someone to put in a full url (which we could do), those links are going to stay blue, which sucks. As for the green, I originally had the main links and title links green, and I received numerous complaints about how it was too green. (It was also kind of hard to read, even with the lime I'm using.) I changed them to white as a decent trade-off. I could switch every other link to green to try and tone it down, but that might just get silly. Any ideas?
I agree with you, FH, that this thing is almost ready for go-live, especially considering the number of complaints have all been minor. - Shiori 03:36, 20 September 2008 (CDT)
How about the same colour background for the top and bottom resistance news boxes as the background for the text "LG15: The Resistance Universe" and "Behind The Scenes" on the content boxes, i think that could work.
Looking at the green main links it does looks a bit dull and i suppose white isn't that bad, but a darker shade of white would be better as the current colour is a bit bright in contrast to the rest of the portals colours. --KindredPhantom 05:03, 20 September 2008 (CDT)
That darker gray is what I had originally, which led to readability issues with the external video links. - Shiori 00:03, 24 September 2008 (CDT)

The blue links after "Watch at" are not readable on my computer.--modelmotion 15:56, 31 August 2008 (CDT)


The blue and white stuff in the border just hurts my eyes. The Green and Grey doesn't exactly work that well together either. Chelsey 23:45, 2 September 2008 (CDT)

Can we somehow make the links to go to the forum/watch video white on this layout? And about the banner image, can we maybe do some color filter on the original image to make it... well, not blue? - 10:54, 3 September 2008 (CDT)

The character pictures are too big compared to the ones in the KateModern & Lonelygirl15 portal. The green is too bright (or the grey not enough dark), and the links are pale blue which is very difficult to watch in a grey background. But except that, I kinda like it :) MrTriangleRenversé 11:22, 3 September 2008 (CDT)

The format for current and former shows are slightly different. The icons are larger in the design because there is normally fewer main characters at one time than in the series in it's entire run. I agree with that we need to find some way to code the links a different color, and I second the suggestion about seeing what the image looks like with a green overlay. If it is too much of a problem, I think we can get away with using a slightly darker shade of green (I know the current one is "official" and all, but green is green). Overall though, great work shiori! I really like the design. --FH14 20:31, 3 September 2008 (EST)

Not a big fan of the grainy ocean background. I like the color scheme, but that ocean background has got to go! - Fijivee

I still cannot read the text I referred to above. I guess I need a screen shot to show the problem.--modelmotion 01:46, 4 September 2008 (CDT)
I disagree, Fijivee! Water = doom, and we know SOMEONE on this show is gonna meet their end. But it's a question of who's the water for; Jonas & Co, or the Order? ;-) --Nieriel.Manwathiel

I like it. :] -Watching_watchers

I think I agree with Modelmotion: I can read the text "Watch at or discuss at forum" because the blue hyperlink text is too dark against the gray background or something like that. --Katiej88 17:35, 6 September 2008 (CDT)

Really not a fan of it. The grainy/negative ocean image is hideous and the colors hurt my eyes. I love the green but it should be against a darker background or something. Foreigncandle 21:05, 6 September 2008 (CDT)

Just lokked at it again, and actually, I love it :D The "blue links" just needs to be in another colour, more viewable, but that's all ! It's very "oldies", I have the impression to watch the screen of an old broken Commodore 64, with weird colours and the weird logo, and everything ! Oh, another thing : the pictures of the caracters should be different from the ones from the lonelygirl15 portal, sincce they evolved a lot since then. For example, Jonas doesn't look like the "Jonas" of the resistance trailer. But, hey, good job, I really love it :D MrTriangleRenversé 02:54, 7 September 2008 (CDT)

I like it, just that the green text is hard to see in some places like in the little boxes for each video, i suggest that you colour the top and bottom sections of the box with a black background like the ones for the two big boxes to the left. "LG15: The Resistance Universe" & "Behind The Scenes". If you don't change them then at least change the links colours for "" & "discuss at forum". Also try to keep some consistency with colours for titles and text. Titles: green, normal text: white/light shade of grey.--KindredPhantom 08:57, 8 September 2008 (CDT)
RE: Everyone: I know about the blue links. TRUST me, I've tried to fix it. The only possible way it can be done is to ban the use of external link templates on the front page. (We'll see if that becomes necessary after EQAL's done with their new updates...) As far as the rest of the color complaints go, I'll fix them now.
The header will stay as-is only because I'm too lazy to create a new one right now. It'll have to be a tiled background, which I guarantee won't look good. Hopefully the C's will give us something better to work with. And the character images will be different, probably taken from an official photo. I just didn't want to get ahead of myself in terms of the whole layout. That's a relatively easy fix as compared to getting the coding and coloring fixed. - Shiori 19:54, 8 September 2008 (CDT)
Okay, I made the lower portion of the box lighter to compensate, but I personally thinks it looks weird. I'll leave it alone though since at least it's readable. I'm still betting that the C's are going to give us an official layout to work with, so this is basically Plan B. - Shiori 20:05, 8 September 2008 (CDT)
You're right : the "light" lower portion looks weird. Bah. At least it's readable :) We just have to be used to it ! MrTriangleRenversé 03:36, 9 September 2008 (CDT)
