    Yes, please do make a Sacrifice banner specific for Resource. A lot of us have been dying for a banner that features Mara in someway shape or form.

    I'm working on it now. It'll use the same Mara Jade image, but with a different color scheme, and a much more beautiful Coruscant skyline (in my opinion).

    Wait a second, is this FF banner for the Beyond the Saga or Resource forum?

    EDIT: Preview image of this upcoming FF banner...

    That's beautiful!

    JadeSolo is away right now, but she requested it for Beyond the Saga.

    That is such a crisp image full of colors. I can't wait to see what you do for a stylesheet.

    The only reason they're not uploaded is that it's gabe who does it. He's away and so they've been in the queue so to speak.

    Another great banner jace, I'm really liking that "curve style" as well.

    That's what I'm talking about. I love the stylesheet. The whole thing just flows together. I like when stylesheets pull out the colors of the banner, especially the colors that aren't necessarily the dominant one's.

    In my opinion this lot of banners are some of the better banners I've ever seen. But I have no control over uploading them. Make one for C&G though and I'll make it my sole desire that she gets up there!

    Gabe's been away on travel and since being back he's had some Internet issues. He seems to have gotten his ISP issues all ironed out so I would expect you'll start hearing from him regarding banners. :)

    Hi, I'm still pretty new to making banner and one of mine is being used for the [link=http://boards.theforce.net/north/b10739/p1]FanForce:UK North[/link], but what I'd like to know is a bit more about the style sheets. I saved one off Grimby the Hutt's site but I can't seem to get it to work with the test page, as you can see [link=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v307/cozmic-chris/testpage.jpg]here[/link]

    Any info or help would be great [face_peace]

    I like it. I think with all that orange you could go with a sunset scheme in the stylesheet. It could stand as it is, it's great. Just my thoughts. Thanks as always. :)

    Guys, I need help. I'm making a banner for the "JC's Top 100 Favourite Books" event in the Amphitheatre, but I'm a bit confused about the stylesheet. It's been a while since I last made any banner, and am too lazy to figure out which thing means what by trial and error... :p

    Now, I remember there used to be a sort of "JC CSS sample" webpage somewhere, with all the parts described (which part is BoardRowA, which part is MainMenuLink, etc.). Is it still around? It would be very helpful...

    Ugh. No thank you. Let's keep all the bright obtrusive colors in the banner, and leave the soothing, readable, easy-on-the-eyes colors for the stylesheets. For example of I avoid: [link=http://boards.theforce.net/science_fiction_and_fantasy_books_and_comics/b10749/p1]SFF: Books and Comics[/link], [link=http://boards.theforce.net/fan_fiction_resource/b10304/p1]Fan Fiction: Resource[/link], and [link=http://boards.theforce.net/fan_sites/b10438/27178076/p1/?0]Fan Sites[/link] to name a few
