    That looks great! Thanks a lot Nivuahc. :)

    How is Saturday the 25th at 8PM for meeting at Borders everyone :confused:

    Thanks!

    I did that with Adobe Photoshop!

    And, believe it or not, it's a picture of the Tusken Raider action figure :p

    EDIT: BTW, we need to see how that looks on a colored background such as this one... make sure I got the transparancy right [face_plain]

    It was the clearest example of a Tusken that I could find when shrunk down to 60 x 60 pixels.

    The 25th at 8pm sounds good to me (so far). I have to check the calendar and check with Jess and see if she's up to it. Do you mind if we bring my Stepson? He's 10 years old and he loves Star Wars too.

    That'd be cool! :D

    The 25th would be fine, but do you think we could make it a litte earlier then 8 though?

    Earlier would be fine with me. What time would you like to meet?

    That would be cool Niv, we'd love to have your stepson come. What's his name :confused:

    Kyle :)

    He's reading a book right now for his book report tomorrow. He saw me doing the icon and working on a banner and the questions started coming :D

    He actually seems excited about coming along!

    Okay... this is what I have so far on my idea for a banner.

    Let me know what you think.

    Please offer suggestions, criticisms, etc.

    As this is just the beginning, I plan to actually make it fit into the reuired scheme eventually... this is just a rough draft.

    I think that looks really good Niv. If that's a rough draft, I can't wait to see it when you're finished.

    Are the icon's dimensions correct? I honestly cannot remember if icons must be 50X50 or 60X60. I'll check on that.

    If the dimensions are correct, and everyone agrees that the logo is the one that they wish to have, then all that is left to do is to get one of the administrators to upload it into the system.

    EDIT: The dimensions need to be 50 X 50 for this board.

    According to the icon thread they had to be 60 x 60 so that's what it is.

    I can resize it to 50 x 50 tonight. :)

    Hmmmm....

    Well, I got my information by right clicking on another icon that is already used on the boards and then choosing "properties" in the pop-up menu. You can try to see if they'll upload a 60X60 before you resize it. :)

    Here's the full image in all of it's glory if you want to see what the finished product should look like.

    EDIT: I figure, since I'm hosting it, I can add more things on the desert landscape later. What do you guys think?

    Okay, I did a little testing and

    1. The icon looks like crap. :( (I'll have to redo it tonight)

    2. There is a very slight sliver in between the breaking point in the banner/background image. (I'll fix that as well)

    Wanna see for yourself?

    One other thing I wanted to mention:

    I have a few megabytes of webserver space (ad-free) with my Comcast account that we can put a webpage on if you all like.

    Plus side: No ads to deal with and plenty of space

    Down side: If I ever stop paying my comcast bill it may go down ;)
