    Part of Otto's original plan for the South involved the recruitment of new members through rl rather than the internet, using posters etc. Resurecting this idea might get us a more workable number of members so we could achieve our three meets.

    Therefore I am inviting anyone and everyone interested to creat a poster for us which can be placed in libraries and shops all over the South.

    The requirments for the poster are as follows:

    1) A4 sized
    2) Have FFUK:South as the title
    3) Have some exlanation of how to find us (seeing as no one will ever remember the big long URL, we could either get a shortened thingamy, but that invloves pop up adds, or just say boards.theforce.net)
    4) Have something which makes it clear what we are (ie. SW related)
    5) Possibly a slogan of some kind


    I think thats it [face_thinking]

    And I think we can keep this open for about a month :)

    I agree with the URL thingy, just not sure how to make it easier, I'll have a think.

    Right, I have decided to change the deadline to Monday due to Tim not being quite finished and my FTP software refusing to upload anything. But dont worry, I'll sort that out tomorrow. :)

    So the deadline is now Monday 3rd April

    Thanks, so glad you like it :D

    The pic I linked above is actually smaller than A4, so some of the real small text you can't see - I just checked. If I win the comp, I'll send Serena the A4 version, I just linked a smaller on to save webspace. The text - to the right of each bit of Aurabesh is the same word in English. Each word is name of one county in the South, in English and Aurabesh ;) I did play with having the names of counties in their respective places on the map too, in black, but when I tried it there was just too much text on the poster, and was a distraction, so I went for the county names round the edge.
