Tumblr is good, I'm pleased someone is taking the reigns with it.

And yes I agree the entire thing needs a complete overhaul, particularly with how it's designed. Have you tried just "lifestream.tumblr"?

Yes, I tried that one too. The owner of that url has a rather fetching image of a zebra's ass as their avatar

I'm not an expert on tumblr themes so I'll probably have to dig around for something that looks good. Which is why I think we need someone who is good with that kind of thing to join the team over there. I was thinking about waiting to see if there was any traction on the possible front page redesign and maybe try and find a theme similar to it. But I have no idea how long that'll take and the tumblr really does need a quick fix.

No, just fire ahead with the Tumblr. Don't worry about making them look similar, as long as you edit whatever theme you choose to our colour scheme I'm sure it'll be fine. Readability is the number one factor. I'm still in the process of getting the TLS stuff installed virtually, though I do plan to push ahead with the front page redesign as quickly as possible.

Okay, I'll work on it as soon as I possibly can. Also found this theme which I like. The link bar is almost centre and I don't know, it's not a lot different from what we have right now. It just feels better to have the blog info on the left sandwiched between two images and with the page navigation right there. Those images aren't actually included in the code so I'll have to upload our own anyway and apparently all the colours are customisable so I should be able to change it into the TLS colours. The only problem I have with it right now is that the bottom left picture has a torn effect going on and I'm not sure if it'll go with an image I choose.

What is your opinion?

You're running the show Teioh. If you want to use one of the accounts I snatched up, let me know, I'll send over the details.

Teioh, Tumblr is easy to hack around with re: design. I can probably mess it up for you if you have specific requests. (What you can do with Tumblr Edit is sort of limited, which means I don't have to get into majjjor projecxxts to come up with something.) I'd have to get access to the account itself though. (AAA!)

Thank you I actually like the thelifestreamblog.tumblr.com one you posted. I'll wait to see what the others have to say about it first but that's the one which is getting my vote.

Edit for Fangu

That'll be great and I'm sure there will be no problem with you having access. I'll have a mess around with it first to see what I need but your help would be very much appreciated. Especially since you probably know all the colour codes

There are cheat sheets for that

http://www.w3schools.com/tags/ref_colorpicker.asp
http://www.ascii-code.com/html-color-names.php
http://www.hexcolortool.com/

etc.
(Not to mention GIMP, Photoshop... be sure to use a good monitor though, that's the most important thing!)

Yeah, that's my preferred approach, the best is when people want to learn and rather ask when they need help - you can always PM me if you need pointers

I've started messing around with the tumblr today but thought I'd better get the Famitsu translation out. Take a look at my terrible design skills. Still need an image for the top left and of course more pages to add to the linkbar. I'm laughing because a friend posted the link to the article before I could and has gotten notes/reblogs and the post I made has zero

It's shaping up nicely, good job. You could probably just use the first half of the site banner for the top left image.

I've got someone who would love to join the The Lifestream tumblr team and probably take over the graphics on it. After a word with Joe, and on his advice, I have asked them to sign up here so you can all get to know them before a decision is made. Even if it's just contributing a graphic here and there, they'd be happy to lend us a hand. This person is 1st Class Soldier so if you have any questions for them or would like to get to know them better then please, fire away.

And now for a totally unbiased opinion, cough, I love their Final Fantasy graphics and edits that they've posted on tumblr. And they so happen to be the person I mentioned in my last post so they were already spreading The Lifestream articles before they were even a member here

Hi, I would first like to thank you for even considering me. You'd probably like to know more about me so here I go. My name is Laci, I'm twenty-two, and I'm a college student. I'm working on my degrees for Organizational Management and Marketing. I don't know if this is useful info but I do hold a 4.0 GPA overall for both my degrees. I also have an internship at a non-profit organization that helps young teen girls. What I do there is work on their newsletter, help reinvent events that seem outdated, and help come up with new projects.

Back tracking to my high school days, I was in web design for three years, and I learned graphic design as well. In my senior year, I was lead graphic designer for real companies in our area. For each project, I deigned the layout of the website, and all the graphics with it. I also became Adobe Certified in Photoshop and Dreamweaver. After I graduated high school, I became a freelance graphic designer. I designed things from logos to wedding invitations.

You're probably wondering why I stopped? I stopped because it was no longer a passion and because the town I lived in was small, the demand was high. I couldn't focus on my school work; I was simply running on empty. I now just edit for fun on Tumblr where there is no pressure.

I do want to bring this up, I'm heavily cloti but I know that my opinions don't matter when it comes to professional works. I would never use your platform for my own agenda or to express my opinions. I also want to say I have my own cloti forum that I am trying to get off the ground. I want to be honest with you about everything so you have all the facts and can make a clear decision. I admit, I'm very honest about my feelings towards the LTD and everyone in FFVII Fanbase on Tumblr knows that. You may or may not care but I just want to be honest with all of you. I know and get there's WAY more to FFVII than some silly LTD. If you want to look at my Tumblr, I'll be happy to link it!

Again, thank you for considering me and giving me a chance to see if I'm a good fit. I really enjoy your site. It's actually what brought me back to the FF Fandom, so no matter what I'll always be a fan of this website!

Thank you so much!
Laci

Never hurts to have another designer around

First of all, welcome to the forums (again, since I said this in your intro thread earlier). All help is good help and we do this for fun, so you don't have to feel like this is a job interview (although I appreciate you approaching it as such). You're welcome to contribute if you like, and I'll leave the decision with Joe/ Teioh as to which capacity that is.

What I will say is, stick around and get to know us all, because tbh we could use some extra web design help with the front site in the future as well as the tumblr.

Also you're free to discuss the LTD in the LTD thread if you so desire, but be warned that it's closely monitored so things don't get out of hand (and we kind of all hate the thread XD). Cloti and Clerith alike are welcome here, just don't bring in any off-forum shipper drama

<3
