Ewok-jedi gave me the suggestion that we should have a contest to design a Pacific Region forum banner since we do not have one of our own. I thought it was a wonderful idea and whole heartily agreed! So I am announcing the Pacific Region Banner Contest! Banners take a while to make; they need to reflect Star Wars and aspects of our Pacific region (i.e. landmarks, states, anything. Reminder: The Pacific Region is made up of Alaska, Hawaii, California, Oregon, Washington, and Idaho). You will need to create the banner, curve, sidebar, other images, (see below for details) and help come up with a stylesheet (we can help if you're not sure how). Be creative and try new things. Remember for style sheets that the readable area should not be too dark. I'm going to put a limit at TWO banners per user, since I know some people will want to make multiple banners. You can post your entries publically here. Suggestions and advice can be found in the [link=http://boards.theforce.net/communications/b10006/15616242/p1]Banner Makers thread[/link].
