"A star is reborn", coming soon to Galaxy GUI (Fall 2008)

What is this?

This is going to be version 4 of Galaxy GUI. We are going to try to make the forum as user friendly and visually pleasing as possible. Web 2.0 features will be met and this site we be tried to updated in a way that it stands out from every other forum!

Who's doing this?

Well, right now I'm guessing the staff will be able to help out and perhaps the community, you guys, as well. We are going to be needing multiple designers on the job, so if you're good at photoshop send me a PM!

What is this update going to feature?

Right now what I have planned, is a new stream-lined and "happy/bright" design, it will not have the blue you guys have seen before, so no worries! happy. Some other planned features are, easier to navigate forums, more user friendly designs and placement of things. More "layback" professionalism - this means we of course remain professional and have rules but in a more layedback, easier to understand way. The design will be minimal - we will focus more on content and a calm look, not too busy like the current stripe patterns all over the place. The official list of features which users will be able to addon to/critique will be up later!

I want to help, what can I do?

If you'd like to help out the community and help design something/generate ideas, please contact me and I will be glad to accept your help, the more the better! wink

Is the site gonna be all messed up again when you're working on this?

NO! This time we will work on it differently so its not viewable to everyone right away. While we will post previews of how the project is coming along, users will not see the final look until we think it's ready to test out. There will be multiple stages of testing, and unlike other updates that took a few days, this will take a much longer time and be much more thorough.

Stay tuned for more info. Beginning of work is set to start around June 25th and continue on into the fall!

I can help doing anything needed visually-wise.
I've done other layouts and templates before, so just let me know if you need any help.

I like the concept of the minimalistic look but not too sure about the bright theme. Might work though so I will reserve judgment and look forward to the updates.

Did you just say 'good at photo shop' on a design forum? heheh.

"Hey you, your not looking relaxed enough! BAND4LYF"

(ignore my witticisms)

If you need something done i'm happy to help in the graphics department. Looking forwards to the new layout! happy

Actually that would be a good idea if everyone took part, it would mean that the forum is literally a part of everyone here.

Sounds cool smile
I haven't done any layouts yet but i think if we get that many helpers we could make some contests and vote which background, button, banner etc. we like most ...

Just a idea of mine happy

Ok... might delay this slightly since everyone's somewhere.

Would someone good at photoshop want to take a try at making a 900x150 banner for Version 4 of Galaxy GUI?

Looks pretty good. How about a lighter color on the text and a drop shadow instead of embossed? happy Then I'll put it into the list of choices for banner (well have a vote)

We needs template lol, keep working on it! (i hope youre making it for phpbb though) tongue

What we really need is for someone to make a PSD of the ENTIRE front page and change things so before we make the elements we can actually see what the forum will look like!
