Making ReignOfBlood more colourful.

Red is not my favourite colour. Even though I do like the black/red theme. I am aware this could be the case for other people too. Red does indeed fit the whole vampire theme but what if you wanted your RoB experience to be say... blue? Blue  is not really related to vampires, but if you wanted a blue layout because its more appealing to you (pushing the theme aside), would you want that?

Today i was playing around with some colours on the banner ads:

















Pretty cool I think. What if you could change the colour (new layout only) of the layout in RoB to fit different colours which fit your taste? Of course red would be the default because we're vampires and love red after all. But do you think it would be worth me re-colouring the images to give you the option to change the colour of the layout?

I mean its nothing major, it could look tacky, but the option is there, and people love to customise.

Tell me your thoughts.

Ash

I like the red too but I think it'd be awesome if we got the option to customize. Different colors are more fun and give a chance to switch things up a bit -thumbs up-

its a cool idea, its always fun to change layout colors

Cougar said...

OMG yes please! I don't like red. I would love for it to be blue or purple.

its a good idea, how will we be able to change the color

i think u should make it pike it'll look awsome

I think it is kind of cool, but on the other hand, why spend time makeing a different color schemes when you could be working on a larger project that actually helps the site, rather then just makeing it look pretty?

Just my opinion.

Reagan said...

There's many customizable things now, I think a colour theme would be good for it too :) especially purple or green :D

DarkAsh said...

It would just be an option in the account page where you choose the colour.

buttaphly0918 said...

It'd be good if you want to be more cohesive with your profile colors. Right now I'm pretty monochromatic because it's best with the colors already there, but it could be cool to mix it up every now and then :)

"because we're vampires" <-- you're being sectioned under the 1998 mental health act

KasiGrace said...

OMG! That would be awsome, in my opinion. I really love blue and orange, and zebra! Maybe you could also add different patterns, like animal print, so on. Just thinking!

Daisy said...

perhaps you could change the colour with the month...like red for valentine's day...yellow in the summer...etc...then we would all be surprised and it wouldn't get boring...just a thought

Patters I think would be too much, but I do like the idea of purple, blue or green.

awesome please do it

xxxkittykatxxx said...

:D purple and green! :D

Anonymous said...

Do blue. It still fits in with the Vampire scene since blood is really blue, not red.

Anonymous said...

as long as each person can choose there own layout i think that would be cool but if its a perm change to a diff clor i think its a bad idea

Anonymous said...

yeah it looks good. i like the green one. it gives it a evil mystic look ^^

Arcane Darklance said...

This seems very interesting Darkash. You should Beta it for like a few weeks and have a poll on it at the end of the set time. It would come back with the results that would be suggested and if it doesn't work out then you can just remove them.

Personally. I think it would add more Depth to it. You could customize it to the colour you like. It is a really good idea. But that is my opinion.

Anonymous said...

I love the idea! Customizing is good. Thank you for offering! :)

Sathyr said...

I don't really use the new layout, but I just liked the blue banner so much just now that I would probably start using it! Red is nice.. but blue is GREAT! Good idea, Ash! <33

Anonymous said...

Awsome. i think it should be blue. thats my opinion any way. so no one argue. my opinion. can't change it.
the purple looks nice aswell. lol :D purple and blue vampires. talk about cliche'

SlayerXIII_Boudiccas_Line said...

I am in agreement Ash! Not only does it give us an option, however we can change colours to match any colour theme we have on our profiles! Awesome, rocks and absolutely do it! ;)

Blood Shard said...

kytuni said...

Good idea. It would make things more interesting.

Anonymous said...

I love the idea. My moods always change so it would be great to be able to change the colors to suit the many moods I sometimes have.

Anonymous said...

Thanks Ash, I think giving the option to customize is a great and generous offer. I look forward to seeing the real thing :)

Anonymous said...

Anonymous said...

Nice but please don't forget purple

Anonymous said...

I'm Cool with having the option to change the layout. Just as long as nothing "Sparkles".

Erella (157800) said...

*points up* LMAO I totally agree... no sparkley stuff!! And as for different colour schemes - I seem to be agreeing with most people here - great idea Ash!

Apostle is Here said...

I guess that's cool so long as it's just optional. Personally I love the red.

Vorres(40734) said...

Yes, new colours would do the site some good, the blue theme sounds good to me but a way for people to individualise it like their profiles would be better, that way everyone is satisfied.

Dannii said...

I already gave my two cents on twitter when I practically screamed 'WOWZERS...BLUUUEEEEEE!' so, that's what I think :)

Anonymous said...

I'd want the green layout, i think its a really good idea ^_^ Purples nice too ^^

Sounds like a great idea. I love the idea of something occasionally more soothing than all the red. A medium contrast gray seems relaxing.

Anonymous said...

That Would be amazing!! :) I think you should definitely do it!! ^.^

Anonymous said...

It would be cool but you should leave the word blood in red.

Anonymous said...

It's good to have some variety and although I love the colour red, it gets a bit dreary after a while.

Anonymous said...

Hell yeah! Bring on the purple layout! :P

Anonymous said...

That would be nice

Semera Bloodlust said...

I'm not against it.. but personally I would keep it red myself.

Anonymous said...

i like the idea i reckon you should go with it

Ok... let's say someone from my school plays RoB and I don't even know them... I have no idea they are playing much less know that they are using the same ip as me... so when you ace act ppl see us on the same ip do we get jailed? I've seen you say that ignorance of the rule is no excuse... but what about ignorance of the existence of the other person or the other person who happened to log in form the same coffee shop or airport or library or any other of the multitudes of public internet access points?

Morti-wa said...

Hey Ash . Big ups man .. They are awsome. Anything that can make us feel more apart of the game is a good thing . Totaly diggin on the green . hope to be able to use them soon.

Would be another awesome addition :)

what ever happened to reign of love?lol:P

Guildythewicked said...

For the anonymous playing at school. 1) wrong place for this but since it's here... 2) Send a Help Ticket to Higher staff explaining that you are on a school web. This way whether there is someone playing from your school or not, they know you are on a public connection.
