Hello my beautiful people! As you may know, the 1 year anniversary of Project Canada is going to be coming this July, and to celebrate I would want to make a brand new theme (hence why I am talking about it now, those things take a shit ton of time to make, believe me).

To make sure you guys like it, I decided to come and ask what you guys would like to see!

Have any color preference? A palette maybe?
Want a contest for the new banner to be made?
Want to keep the old banner?
Want widgets?
Glitters falling from the top of the forum?
A smiling burger floating gently from right to left across the screen?
You name it and I'll do it, if it's possible and if it's pretty in the decor.

To get you guys inspired, here's a few good forum I found out there:
http://hetalia-steam-world.forumactif.org/
http://hetaliacity.forumactif.org/
http://pastakedavra.forumactif.org/
http://hetaliacampusrevival.fr-bb.com/
http://hetaliaworldacademy.forumactif.org/
http://aph-hell-oceans.forumactif.org/

I can't wait to hear you guys suggestions!

I'm terribly boring but anything that is easy for my computer to load is best for me (especially if i am stuck in the country with a bandwidth cap) so simple is best

and I'd prefer to avoid the overwhelming amount of red in the old forum if at all possible- the palette we have now is great xD;

I agree with Hapo - I like simple layouts that are easy on the eyes, not overwhelming to look at, and loads easily ^^;; (I quite like the current theme and fonts so something like it would be preferable for me.)

Well I don't really know what could be hard to load (except maybe the flying burger). If you guys could go on the different forums I listed and give me a few element that makes you lag that would be much easier to avoid them. Same if you find a thing you like, it's much easier to know when you have a more concrete exemple.

Also it is most likely that the layout won't change, just the general appearance.

All of them except maybe Hetalia World Academy took forever to load for me- anything with large headers or a lot of images/scrolling images/gifs takes a long time and is very irritating. The fewer images, the better!

Alright, so looking at them, I think I know what is making you lag on each of them:
Steam World: The many images and text animations with the two column category.
Hetalia City & Hell Ocean: Images as category titles
Pasta Kedavra: The main page animations
Campus revival: The snowflakes and the spinning Earth animation

So I came to the conclusion that I should avoid the followings:
- Animations on image and text (at least not too much)
- Two column categories
- Images as category titles

Now what style should it be? I was thinking of something more slick and modern, like something that feels a little more professional but like, not boring professional like fun professional? Also what kind of colors should I go with?

Hello PC members!

This is an announcement to tell you that the new theme is right around the corner, I am finishing the last few adjustment, the links and whatnot. So you can expect it to be up in the next few days.

However, I would really love if some of you could help me before I make it public. I would like a few people to test it out and tell me what they think of it and if there are corrections to make before I put it up.

So if you are willing to help and are available as soon as tomorrow, please message me and I’ll give you the link to my test forum for you to play around (you won’t have to sing up on it don’t worry).

Thank you!

I'm sure I'll think of more things but #1 right away

When you link to the FAQ on the front page on the announcements could you link to the audition faq as well? Like 'audition faq' 'tumblr faq' sort of thing so both are easy to find and one of the first things people see when they come in. That would probably get us a few more auditions ;u; -prays for manly quebecers to rain from the heavens-
