    Okay, tonight I was feeling the need to do something creative so I decided to give the forum banner a shot. I decided not to try to put pics of us or anything like that since some people (myself included) would probably rather not have their pic on the banner and with so few members it wouldn't really work putting just a couple people on the banner. Anyway, I just tried to keep it consistant with the website (which I'll update tomorrow if anyone wants news posted). So here's an example of what I came up with. I hope you guys like it because who knows when the next time I have a chance to play with this will be...

    EDIT: This is just a screen capture of the banner on the site itself. I thought this gave a better vision of the overall look, although the banner itself looks much nicer when it's the correct size.

    I heart it mucho. Let's use it!

    We should alternate occasionally though with Michael's, just to scare off random people. ;)

    It wouldn't fit, originally I was going to use it for the left side part but it was just too wide to get the right effect. You couldn't tell what it was.

    Sweet man, I think it looks great. Much better than a collage, in my opinion. :D

    Nice!

    A bit....male-ish, but very stylish, too.

    :~)

    What's it say on the side banner?

    Maleish? Interesting. :) On the side it says "The Special Edition".

    But very styly.

    Well, there's no boys either. :) I guess the brown tint gives it the "mailish" feel. I just really liked that picture, in reality though, brown is my least favorite color, worked for that pic though.

    "Mailish" feel eh? You don't mean "maleish" feel? Haha, you're so grammatically in the poor house. :)

    I think it would be the funniest thing EVER if in the middle of that artsy battle scene you just plastered Natalie Portman in.

    Any way you could make those white lines connect so it looks like one image?

    I'd rather not make those white lines connect, it's an intentional part of the design, not an accident. I did it like that on the website and that's why I did it on there too. I'm all about continuity. :) If everyone wants it changed I'll do it though.

    marmakecam, see if you can access this thread...
    [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=7562110]Board Customization FAQ[/link]

    That should help some with getting the new stuff up.....and also, note I think it says in there somewhere that Rox is now the one to PM.
