    Hey everyone I wanted to ask you guys this.

    I'm working on the banner and the color scheme for the boards and for our website. I want to get your input on your what kind of colors would you like as a color scheme for this board.

    In addition I want to hear what kind of things would you like on the banners? So far the foreground banner is going to be New Jersey sights (Boardwalk, Giants Stadium, etc.), the background will be famous New Jersians, the curve will be Dooku or a Jedi (your choice), and the side will be SW characters (again your choice).

    So give me your input and then I'll put a poll later to ask for final opinions. :)

    as good a place as any for my 9100th post. :D

    Ok...as for color scheme...I like the way the Saga forum looks, with the Black & White...but I will go along with the majority vote...

    The question really becomes how much NJ we want to be...since Green & Yellow seem to be major color schemes for NJ.

    As for famous NJians...

    I found quite a few websites listing famous people from NJ...

    list includes:

    Jon Bon Jovi
    Bruce Springsteen
    Frank Sinatra
    Bette Midler
    James Gandolfini
    Whitney Houston
    Tom Cruise
    Danny De Vito
    Jack Nicholson
    John Travolta
    among others....plus Buz Aldrid & a President.

    As for SW characters...Darth Vader, Boba Fett & Yoda are my choices.

    I know Green and Yellow are the major colors for New Jersey, but I was hoping that we could go a little darker. Green and white along with black would look really cool. Perhaps a Forestgreen would look good?

    Your Jersey famous figures looks good and I'll start downloading pictures tomorrow.

    For characters, I was thinking we use Vader, Dooku, Anakin and Jango Fett. I was going to use Dooku in the foreground banner image. ?[face_plain]

    Well, if we're the New Jersey Order, we should at least include one pic of Luke, since he founds the New Jedi Order. Plus, Star Wars would be nothing if not for him.

    Yoda, Anakin and Vader are cool too, and a Fett always works (hey, he's a hired hitman, and we have that stigma of being a mob-state, lol).

    Yes I mean to put Luke in somewhere. Perhaps on the Curve image. ?[face_plain]

    Much I have to work on in the next few days on doing this banner work.

    Guys...I stated the green & yellow...because I was not sure if you guys would want it...I personally could go with other colors...

    But the Forestgreen does peek my interest. ;)

    I wonder if both Fetts could fit?


    So...we are known for our Mob connections due to the large Italian influence (no complaints on my part :D ), the Major highways & our celebrities...

    Here is a thought...put Tony Soprano & a Fett next to each other. What do you think?

    I like the Boba/Dooku/Vader/Anakin idea and I agree with excal. Luke should be in there somewhere, too. It's his Order. ;)

    I like the idea of Anakin. New Jersey Order seems to breathe new life and new direction, which Anakin is representative of. Green and Yellow is cool too.

    you know me, anything Dooku is ok with me

    Yeah I'll put Dooku in it somehow.

    So we have for the side banner: Dooku, Jango, Anakin, Luke, and Vader. I can fit three or four characters. So I'm thinking, Luke goes in the curve image and Anakin, Vader and Jango will go on the side and have Dooku in the main banner. :)

    I'll try and put yellow in somehow. Lots of coding to do. [face_plain]

    HA HA! Big Ton and Fett next to each other? Classic! Or maybe Jabba, that would be amusing, lol.

    Luke should probably be next to Bruce. Both are Boss of their respective fields (come on, Luke wielding a lightsaber and Bruce with a mic? Perfect!)

    Here's what I have so far for the foreground banner:

    Foreground possibility

    I gotta work on the text still, I know that. I only wish my computer would allow me to install new fonts. [face_plain] Stupid computer...work! :mad:


    I'm gonna start on the side bar and background this week. I hope to have everything done by the end of the week. Then I'll start the color scheme.
