Voting will run ONE WEEK ONLY and the winner will be announced on Friday, 25-Sep-2015.
As you may have noticed, there have been several recent changes made to the layout of the Kommunity front page, including some redesign / shifting of the features layout.
This is all part of R&L’s master plan when they decided to “hand over the keys” for this to become a wholly FAN-BASED and FAN-RUN social network and the K-Mods agreed to take on all of the day-to-day maintenance, operation and safekeeping of the website.
Today, following the celebration of our 100,000th active kommunity member, we move into the next step of this changeover where we come to YOU, the mythical beasts of the Kommunity, to help us decide what this place will look like in the very near future. Planning is now under way to refresh and redesign the website’s pages including:
A brand new top-of-page BANNER
Effective immediately, we are soliciting all of your considerable talents to create a new banner. Submit your ideas by posting on this KBE discussion thread. Better yet, put your Graphic Artists skills to good work and completely design one for us!
Ning's header dimensions are only width bound, so banner submissions can be any height but no more than 955 pixels wide.
The contest to submit your banner design will end on Tuesday, September 15th. All submissions must be posted by that deadline in order to be included in the voting. Once the K-Mods have had an opportunity to review your designs, a voting place will be opened, so no need to "vote" here and now on the entries being posted up.
A new design theme and color scheme for the entire site
The Ning site builder tools have over 50 basic designs to choose from, but we hope to narrow that down to a “Top 5” before opening up a voting page for the Kommunity members to decide. You can play with the look of your own personal page and maybe come up with a suggestion that’s the best thing since sliced bacon . . . colors, fonts, layout, etc . . . everything can all get the basic or custom design treatment at:
Tell us what you want!
It’s true that not every single wish can be granted, but all serious suggestions will be given due consideration and perhaps you have some idea that will make this site a much better looking and better working place for us all to enjoy. If it's a good idea, benefits the members, promotes a better Kommunity and there's any way to make it happen, we'll jump right on that.
Thanks for the responses but, for all who keep asking, just leaving the setup "as-is" is not an option. Please see below.
i dont really want the site to be changed. its beautiful just the way it is :c
I agree. This site immortalises everything that true mythical beasts are made of and the Rhett and Link original logo. I understand that others may want to make it more "modern" or make it similar to the new rhettandlink.com but I personally think that this site is a point in mythical history that shouldn't be altered. I will not be upset if the site changes but it is much more preferable if this iconic kommunity remains as it is - as the Rhett and Link Kommunity with all of its characteristics and features.
Is this for real? It's kind of upsetting to think about the color scheme and the banner changing... they're iconic. :(
I love the banner and the color. Can we at least keep that?
I feel like we should leave the color scheme green and white, I mean, it's part of the Rhett and Link logo.
I think we should leave the page how it is. Maybe we could create another page where we change these things.
I feel that to change the banner and color scheme would is a bad idea. That is Rhett and Link, it is their logo and color and if this were to be a true fan page those should not change. In fact I cannot see anyway that any idea could improve or compare to the way it is at this moment.
We can already customize our own personal page and that is good for me, and I hope that everyone is in agreement with that.
Change the layout all you want but my vote is to keep the original banner and color.
