    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. [link=http://www.hometown.aol.com/hsolo29/index.html] Click Me! [/link]

    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...[link=http://www.angelfire.com/empire/g_o_a/banner.html]and it's almost done[/link](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. ;)

    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.
