Banner contest!

Post by [McN]The_QuakR on Thu Jan 27, 2011 8:10 pm

With the launch of this new board, we need an official clan banner to take its place atop the homepage. Whoever is interested may take part in this contest by designing such a banner and then submitting it to this thread once it has been created. You can use the "Host an image" button to attach an image to your post. The only rules are to keep the images appropriate, and use one of these three image formats: JPEG, GIF, PNG. This contest will go until we get a reasonable number of submissions, then this thread will be closed and a poll will open up for users to pick their favorite. The design that grabs the most votes will be selected as the official banner for this board.

You are also free to include some smartass slogan if you want. Very Happy

I will start this little thing off with a submission of my own. I just threw this banner up together today using Photoshop CS4. Thanks to my schooling in my bachelors degree program, I know now a little bit about that program. This banner is not much, but it serves its purpose, and I personally like the color scheme of it, but that's my bias taking over lol.

Well for the moment activity at this forum is sporadic. I can totally understand why, we're all busy with other manners these days, as am I trust me. I think I would like to include that banner I created at the top of our forum however, because I'm getting tired of the other banner that came with this forum skin. It will stay there only in the interim, as I still want to see some more contributions here and have a vote on the best design. Maybe putting it up would attract more visits. Smile

I found in my archive our old web-logo.

Yep, that is the banner we saw on Bones' site. That could work. I'll leave this contest open for the remainder of the month though, then on January 1st a ten-day poll will be opened up to determine the permanent banner for this forum.

In the meantime, I urge everyone to keep the ideas coming! Smile

That is pretty good!

I want to leave this open until the end of Saturday just to see if anyone else has anything to contribute here. Then I'll open the poll up and we'll choose a winner.

Just a fair warning, at midnight Eastern I am closing this thread to new submissions and will open the poll. It will be a public poll that will remain open for ten days.

I saw that too Kab. I'll open up the admin panel and see what's up. It's possible that I may have a backup copy of the banner but don't count on it. Anyway, I'll look into it and keep everyone updated.
