Wellp, seeing as you guys have done an excellent job of lifting off the ground and all, I went ahead and PMed the RSAs and said we'd have ourselves a little art pool here and put together some various banners to vote on for us, along with a colour scheme to use for the boards. I couldn't find the old thread about this, it may have sunken into locked land, so here's a new one. Go ahead and put together a banner design and all, and then post an image showing what it would look like on the boards. For some helpful hints, here's the typical Fan Force message concerning banners: [blockquote][hr][hl=yellow]Customizing Images for your FanForce Board[/hl][hr] Every FanForce chapter is allowed and has the capability of creating their own customized banners for their local FanForce board. The entire banner concept is created of 4 images. The main banner image (or the foreground image), the background image (that sits behind your foreground image), the curve image and the side image. Each of these have their own custom dimensions. Default Graphic Dimensions for the Banner System * Main banner image (foreground) - 764 x 110 * Main Background image - 764 x 110 * Curve image - 69 x 69 * Side Bar image - 32 x 465 The only image that will keep the board in the same shape and not affect anything if you stretch the width out is the Main Background Image. Remember, though - creating a wider image will create slow loading times for your board. Here are examples of each, taken off of the current Jedi Council banners created by [link=http://boards.theforce.net/user.asp?usr=235934]Lord Mauly Mall[/link] -- * [link=http://www1.theforce.net/JC/images/Spring_2002/banner.jpg]Main banner image[/link] * [link=http://www1.theforce.net/JC/images/Spring_2002/background.jpg]Main Background image[/link] * [link=http://www1.theforce.net/JC/images/Spring_2002/curve.jpg]Curve image[/link] * [link=http://www1.theforce.net/JC/images/Spring_2002/left_strip.jpg]Side Bar image[/link] A few other things to remember -- try testing out your board. You can do this by either saving your board to your hard drive (in Microsoft Internet Explorer, File > Save As) and then editing the image values in the code. You could also have someone else do it for you and show you the example. [hr][/blockquote] Once everyone who would like to has had the chance to make a banner and submit it by posting the finished banner image in this thread, we can start a vote. You can submit multiple entries and all, just try and make them all a little Oregonish. Try different approaches, different slogans, different names, whatever. Just have fun with it! The winner will have their banner used and be given the title "OFF Banner Designer" or something like that. Really whatever you would like it to be, so long as it has to deal with the fact that you designed the banner. That's all between you and the RSAs. May the Force be with you!
