Hello hello. I'm looking to get some requests for specialized templates. There are some stipulations and rules to follow, but I'll list those in just a moment. I'm really wanting to hone my skills and rebuild my knowledge for CSS. I have some templates in planning, but I am still wanting to make some more theme styles that people are definitely looking for in the community.

Rules for Requests wrote:
One request per person. No anonymous characters. Submit your request by your Writer Profile or character profile attached to a writer profile. I want to ensure that everyone gets equal opportunity to make their request. :)

All templates will be open to the public. Please do not request character exclusive themes. All themes will be made for public epic user use.

Be descriptive. I'd like to understand what it is you're hoping for with the themes. Simiply stating monochrome, red, or sparkly will not be enough for me to understand.

Do not poke, prod, or PM to see if I have gotten to your request or started on it. Templates that time! I also may not do your request due to my own inability to create what you're asking, or simply not having a way to give what you are looking for in a theme.

When making a request, I require you to state what colours, textures, genre that you're looking to fulfill with these theme templates.

If you have images for references would you like me to use, and they are free to use images( I will be double checking, and trust me I will find it.) then please list them under a collapse tag. If the image is just a link to a site I'm not familiar with, then please know that I may not click the link. I'd rather the image be shown than be linked to obscure websites. Thanks!

If you are looking for a theme that is based around a specific culture, please bare in mind that I may not be able to fulfill that request. I don't want to misrepresent a culture, and I refuse to do anything that seems culturally appropriating.

Examples of Colours:
Dark
Broody reds
Bright yellows
green and blue
magenta
purple
Examples of Textures:
Stones
Neon Lights
Rainy
Grass fields
Grungy
Smokey
Examples of Genres:
Romantic
Fantasy
City Life
Country Cottage
Woods
Evil
Angelic
Bonus! Fandom Themes:
Bleach!
Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood
Black Butler
FLCL
Zoids
etc.

I am looking to see if there are any genres for shows, anime, manga, video game specific themes that people might be looking for as well. However, just like generic themes this can mean a lot of different sub-categories I will need some details. There's so much in each type of fandom that I wouldn't be able to know exactly what you're looking for with certain fandoms. However, you must keep in mind that I only use free use images, or public logos of fandoms. I won't use someone's fannart of a show to create a theme, as I don't want to use something without some sort of freedom to use it.

WHAT I WILL NOT DO:
NSFW Themes.
Rips of pre-existing themes from other users.
Character exclusive themes.
User exclusive themes

If the rules are not met for these requests then I will not be making a request. I won't tell you that you've broken the rules, but instead leave it as is.

I've been hoping to see an ocean/reef themed template pop up for some time now. I like the ones that exist already, but I find that static backgrounds (the picture stays put when you scroll) tend to obscure text, so I'd love to see one without a static background or one that has a box around where text would be. Anything that won't distract from the text works!

I also rather like the look of sunlight underwater. I can't find any free-use examples of what I mean though...

Color: Ocean colors! Personally, I'd prefer a fairly dark template since they tend to be easy on the eyes.

Texture: Smooth. Perhaps metal, crystal, or glass? I'm not sure.

Genre: Fantasy or nature

Theme: Ocean

I love the idea of doing another ocean theme. I did one not too long ago, but I understand about having backgrounds showing through the text that can make it distracting! I'll work on this over time, but I can't guarantee a set release date. However, I'll definitely remember to drop you a PM or just message you here when/if I get it finished sometime soon. :) Thanks for the request, Bunny!

I'm sad about the general lack of swamp templates. I'd honestly take anything- something grungy, slimy and ominous, or something more like a haunting, mystical bog with lilies and fireflies. Regardless of which aesthetic, I'd suggest muted colors, something soft and easy on the eyes. Bone whites, moss or sage greens, dull stone, faded wood, maybe the inclusion of fog/mist.

Way cool of you to do this!

When I look through the templates, I'm kind of disappointed by the general lack of plain colored ones. All the images and layouts are really nice, but they have a specific feel, which is great if that's what you're looking for!

Yet sometimes I just want some basic color swatches. Some of the more plain ones are too dark, or the border sort of detracts from things, or the area where you input information is too narrow, or the fonts are too small or are too mismatched between headers and body text...or too varying in style (for example going bold or underline completely changes the font and color).

I guess I'm requesting is simple, clean templates with colors that go well with one another. Maybe with like a paper or cloth or fabric texture to the colors?

If I'm not making sense, please let me know and I'll try to clarify! Sometimes, it's hard having something visual in my head and attempting to explain it to someone not in my head.

YEEESSSS. I will see what I can do! Thank you for this request! I agree on a lack of swamps.

Great idea! I think this could work for so many people! Thank you for the request! I'm getting ideas already!

I would like to throw my metaphorical hat into the ring.

Honestly, I've seen a lot of magical girls or boys around the site and I don't know, I just feel like a template for a magical girl/boy char should be very bright and flashy. I just don't feel like any of the current templates fit too well (although I do love all the templates offered <3) But I mean, I don't want people to hurt their eyes, so a balance is really kinda required.

colors-Pastels (pink and blue specifically.)

textures-Sparkles, stars, hearts, sunny

Examples? Kind of.

This is nice of you to do <3

These would be fun to make! Thanks for the request!

I'm a potato with no good ideas to contribute, but I think this is really great of you!

There are a couple of template ideas I would like but haven't seen.

I have a character who is sort of a magician. It might be nice to see some fun magic and/or circus related templates.

Image suggestions


magic-2034144_1280.jpg

circus-3196457_1280.jpg



The first image obviously lends itself more to a black and white motif while the second for more purples and golds. I imagine a smoky, hazy, mysterious aura/texture would work well for either of these.

Ideas are just brewing, thank you, everyone!

Ohhh!

I think a template made with this gothic vampire image would make for a great template, maybe with the site container being a transparent scrolling section in the middle. Very dark gothic, vampire, elegant. Colors of gold, silver, red, white. *rubs chin*

I saw it and thought of making a template with it, but felt it was above my skill set and would love to see someone else, especially you (your templates are stunning) make something with it. :)

Awwe! Thank you! That's really sweet, I am glad that you like my designs. I can take a look at the Gothic style, I've never been much a fan of vampires in general, but we shall see what I can manage. :D

Sorry for the late response, but thank you for putting together some templates for the community. I look forward to seeing what you come up with!
