We are looking to have a Proboards Hosted Forum skin and custom homepage designed for us. We have a basis and I drew up a mini-mock up for what the forum is looking for. I have a small list below and a link to the mock up at the bottom. I'm not sure if you are still doing proboards, but I saw your guru ad and wanted to ask!
We would like a toggle side bar so that the sidebar stays open and does not close on it's own. Be able to have access to our c-box as well as show our #announcements and #general chats from Discord chat? (Not sure if you'd be able to do that, but wanted to give that a shot) Maybe even a toggle side bar with tab options to have the option to add another page if necessary?
A Toggle Over Banner Information Section (Maybe back the banner larger and increase the forum length? Not sure how possible that is)... (Similar to our current one does toggle instead of hover) Have access to see Of The Months (as images) and hover to get more information (text) on it. Same thing for the staff area. A Navigation / Quick Link section for our important threads (Creative freedom as long as it looks really cool). We also need a section for links for our events/special roleplaying threads. Maybe even a "News" Section with a link to our news letter (The Warkington Post) and current contests and such. With a little news rolling news feed above/below/around it with updates and urgent info?
For the Board Layout and look, we really like having the image for the world displayed (maybe you can suggest a better option to be able to see the board description if it's applicable). We are open for some creative freedom here as long as it looks interesting. We do like having the icon of the last member that posts in the board show in the topic. It was different and we did like that. But, maybe a nicer way to show the board statistics.
Mini Profile we're really flexible. We do like to have a background image where when you hover, it shows the information about the character and has links to profiles and trackers that can be added. We had a request that we'd be able to add music that can be played on the profile. We also like oddly shapes icons. No just squares or circles. (Slightly similar to our own) But we would like a remodel of the actual mini-profile page when you're brought to the member's information. It would need to have access to Trophy's plug in and the Money System plug in.
We would like a Forum Statistics to have the same feel as the one we have currently. We like that the member's icon shows in the "Online Now" section. Maybe we can do the same in the "Online Today" and you'd be able to scroll through? Maybe a nicer looking layout for it though.
Affiliate table can be the same, but maybe with nicer CSS styling.
