    Now that we're official, I think it's time we voted on a user icon and a banner for the top of the board. I'm open for suggestions and ideas for the banner (what should go on it, etc.) I already have a slogan for it: "Reading Red Squadron: Berks County's Source for Star Wars Fandom" Like? Any Suggestions?

    And here is an idea for the icon. Let me know what you think. Click Me!

    Looks good to be, though doesn't the x-wing and the symbol look a little faded, or is that intentionally?

    Glad you like it, Bryan :)

    And Crazed...it's supposed to look like that. There's a starburst behind the X-Wing and it's reflecting off of the symbol and casting the X-Wing somewhat into shadow, which makes it appear faded.

    I like the icon guys. Good job.


    I would say that you should attempt to make your own banner. I had a blast setting ours up...and it's almost done(I'm slow as hell).

    Nice...I like the pictures you chose to be on it. I just need to figure out how in the world you got your banner on the boards and changed the color.

    I could help with that. What colors would you like to use and where? If you give them to me, then I can show you what they'll look like on your board.

    I probably won't know what colors I would want until I get at least a rough version of the banner done. I'll get back to you when I have decided. :)

    Thanks, Wesmin! :)

    So, does anyone have any ideas for a banner? I would really like to get started on this...not to mention a website (Crazed...)

    I love the icon...very sweet.

    In my dreams here, I have seen the destruction of the Jedi. The death of the Republic. I have seen the Temple in ruins, the Senate smashed, and Coruscant itself shattered by orbital bombardment from immense ships of impossible design. I have seen Coruscant, the seat of galactic culture, become a jungle far more hostile and alien than any on Haruun Kal.
    I have seen the end of civilization.

    And I didn't start a banner because nobody seems to be interested since they're not throwing out ideas...

    ok here are some ideas:
    -I think it should obviously have some X-wings in it since we are reading red squadron
    -probably a rebel sign somewhere
    - maybe add a litlle bit of the darkside somehow ( darth vader, stormtrooper, tie fighter; something)
    -Make sure you get the colors right
    organic and flowing= light side
    clean cut and mechanical= dark side

    Well that should be enough suggestions to at least get you started and maybe hype up this thread a bit :)

    @Han: You just love that PotC quote, don't you? And the "REALLY BAD EGGS!" :p

    Hmm...yeah, Bryan...I agree...and maybe the pagoda, cause that's pretty much Reading's symbol...thing ;)

    Very nice ideas, Bryan. I agree with you on just about all of them. I think I'm gonna take your word for it and whip something up! :)

    And Crazed, why yes I do love that quote :D I wouldn't have put in into my sig. if I didn't. ;)

    No...my whip broke! :(

    Anyway, I'll be getting around to it soon. What do you guys think of a flyer also to put into stores?

    I have an update on the banner. So far, I have the city skyline as the background and I have Vader in the left hand corner. I didn't get further because my comp. was being laggy. Anyway, I'll try to have a link up to it later today.

    And on a side note, Crazed, you are free to start on the website at any time.
