    I went against the trend.
    For us kiwis it's great! But, for any of our esteemed visitors from outside NZ, they might think "What the heel is a triple star?"

    Oh srcr*w it, who cares? Fantastic! Bravo!

    What's the banner gonna look like?

    Other Fanforce chapters seem to have "in jokes" or "local only knowledge" (or, as it turns out, no particular "clever tie-in" at all!) as the basis for their slogans;

    Can you guess where these FanForce chapters are located;


    "The Sith Will Rise Again"
    "The Fandomenace"
    "The Bright Center of the Universe"
    "Steel City Jedi Knights: Three Rivers, One Force"
    "Indy Knights: Hoosier Daddy, Luke?"
    "SithClan"
    "The Padded Detention Cell (In here, no one can hear you scream)"
    "A Sith Took My Baby!"
    "The Force Guild"
    "Star Walking"
    "Outer Rim"
    "Hyperspace"


    The Australian FanForce slogans (other than "A Sith Took My Baby") are particularly poor.

    The idea is to have it slightly personal, as it is for us and not for people around the world. I think it shows New Zealand very well considering it is directly related to our national anthem. And as long as we love it then that's all that matters really.

    As for the banner I think we are still come up with some ideas, I haven't got around to doing more, i'll do some right now actually.

    Slightly different variation of a banner I did a while back. Thought I'd stick with some not so well known photos as the others are being used left right and center all over the show now. Plus it's pretty basic and simple. non complicated.

    EDIT: sorry about the link, it kept screwing up.

    OK well I think the poll says it all really, we seem to all agree that it's good and I'll get to work on the admins.

    Keep going with the banners though!!

    Looks like we're now Guardians of the Triple Star :)

    First attempt

    Just worked this up tonight. Few things still to tweak. Hopefully it shows up normally at other resolutions, I haven't been able to test it yet.

    wow! thats pretty cool! loving the black caps with light sabers! hehe

    if only the Black Royal Guard with silver fern (that jp-30 altered) was incorporated in there somehow too...

    I can probably get him in there somewhere (or possibly replace the Buzzy-Bee ad-ends with him). I'll try tomorrow.

    Darth Sebious, that is great.

    I know it's only a first attempt, but I have a couple of suggestions, if you're willing to listen.

    Swap the NZ flag for the Black Royal Guard, or the Royal Guards black fern / 3-star emblem. The blue of the flag doesn't fit with the rest of the banner, and the fact that it shows FOUR stars conflicts with the chapter name. :D

    Is there any chance of a recognisable NZ skyline / cityscape used in the background? Beehive, skytower, Mitre peak, One Tree Hill, Te Papa etc...

    Other than that I love it. Especially the black-caps with sabers!

    I was thinking of adding a few of the buildings actually into the Coruscant skyline (changing their colours etc. so they'd blend in). I can probably add the Sky Tower and the beehive at least. If anyone has any good pics, I'd appreciate it if you could post them.

    I'll try fitting the guardian in tonight.
