hey all in order to combat the hideously ugly "cirrhosis of the liver" yellow we got going on here now, we're going to have a contest to replace the header for the DFWFF forum. requirements: must have the words "DFW Fan Force" & "www.dfwfanforce.net" and at least one of our two logos. also, i'm a stickler for the quality of the work, no pixelization around the edges, sharp clear fonts/text, no abrupt egdes where the image suddenly cuts off, no unnecessary smudgey blurs. optional requirements: can have the words "forum" our "jedi council" etc. must not have: anything "objectionable", keep it clean. your name or logo or anything, we want this to be about US not you. images specs: Foreground.jpg - 764 x 110 - The foreground image that the Amphitheatre logo will be placed on. Background.jpg - 764 x 110 - This is the tiled graphic behind amph_foreground.jpg. If you look at the current image, the picture repeats itself without making it blatantly obvious. You need to be able to do the same thing. Side.jpg - 32 x 465 - The sidebar image that connects with the foreground and the curve images. Curve.jpg - 69 x 69 - The curve image that connects the corners of the foreground and sidebar images. ad_left.jpg - The image that sits to the left of the advertisement banner. No dimension restrictions here, but try to keep it less than 80 pixels high (dimension suggestion is 60 pixels) and less than 100 pixels wide. ad_right.jpg - The image that sits to the right of the advertisement banner. No dimension restrictions here, but try to keep it less than 80 pixels high (dimension suggestion is 60 pixels) and less than 100 pixels wide. forums.jpg - 437 x 88 - The picture you see on the "Post A Reply" page. resources: [link=http://www.google.com/imghp]google image search[/link] templates & logos: [link=http://dfwfanforce.net/images/logos/forum_template1_fixed.jpg]forum template JPG[/link] [link=http://dfwfanforce.net/images/logos/forum_template1_fixed.psd]forum template PSD[/link] [link=http://dfwfanforce.net/images/logos/dfwfanforce1.jpg]dfwff logo 1 JPG[/link] [link=http://dfwfanforce.net/images/logos/dfwfanforce1.psd]dfwff logo 1 PSD[/link] [link=http://dfwfanforce.net/images/logos/dfwfanforce2.jpg]dfwff logo 2 JPG[/link] [link=http://dfwfanforce.net/images/logos/dfwfanforce2.psd]dfwff logo 2 PSD[/link] what to turn in: take the forum template, do your thing, and send me [link=mailto:email@example.com]firstname.lastname@example.org[/link] either a JPG or a photoshop PSD [prefer psd] by November 21, 2002 i'll post them all online and we can do a vote. have fun.
