    Remember back on the old boards how each forum had their own theme? We kinda can do that again with banners.

    With both Bardan and Bazinga'd's blessing, I'll be creating one for the SWC in that style. In order to do that, I will like to hear from you, the community, and get your input on what/who will appear in it.

    Here are the categories for suggestions:

    • Hero
    • Villain
    • Jedi
    • Sith
    • Ship
    • Non-human
    • Creature

    I've added a few of my own to get the ball rolling:


    Hero
    - Bail Organa
    - Crix Madine
    - Leia Organa

    Villain
    - General Veers
    - Jabba The Hutt
    - Grand Moff Tarkin

    Jedi
    - Aayla Secura
    - Qui Gon Jinn
    - Mace Windu

    Sith
    - Count Dooku
    - Darth Vader
    - Palpatine

    One Ship
    - X-Wing
    - ARC-170
    - Star Destroyer

    Non-human
    - Chewbacca
    - Ithorian
    - R2-D2

    Creatures
    - Dewback
    - Aiwha
    - Tauntaun

    This thread will run mid-week (end of the 10th) before I start production.

    We need a category for Mods. Could you imagine the SWC banner with a picture of Bardan_Jussik in full armor and one of Sheldon Cooper wearing a Yoda like costume? :p

    what about the old CCC-SWC banner that was suggested a few years ago :p

    that was a good idea :p

    mod approved at the time too which helps :p

    We want a banner that exemplifies the entire SWC, not just one small facet of it.

    Great idea!

    My votes:

    • Hero: Redeemed Anakin (shot of unmasked Sebastian Shaw smiling), Luke, and Leia
    • Villain: Palpatine and Sidious (one image of each)
    • Jedi: Yoda
    • Sith (already covered by Sidious image above)
    • Ship: X-wing and the Falcon
    • Non-human: Yoda (if not chosen in the Jedi category); R2D2
    • Creature: Tauntaun
    Edit: just had a random idea...since the SWC also has a bit of a "zany/silly" side to its nature (with its occasionally extremely "random"/weird SW-related posts and the fact that it features a lot of SW games), maybe a funny image of a fan dressed up as a SW character or a SW vehicle converted to "RL" could be included? Something like this:
    [IMG]

    or maybe this?:

    Just a thought (not saying it would have to be those particular images). Also, I don't know if there might be prohibitive ownership/copyright issues with using random web images like that (of course, maybe there's an SWC patron who has their own somewhat "zany" fan image they could give permission to use?)

    I don't know if it is possible...but could we use characters as well as games/clubs, since there are so many diverse clubs and such?
    Each one could have an identifying logo or symbol,... such as a Jedi logo or a lightsaber for the Jedi.
    Then we could fill in the blanks with characters.

    Either way, I agree with Bail's list, but I'd personally like Piett in there somewhere (is he a hero? a villain? a creature? lol) as well as the Executor. And some TIE fighters. :D
    But I feel his list has a lot of symbolic characters, creatures, and ships. :)

    No and no. Keep it to the instructions people, we have someone who has generously offered to create this banner for us by donating his own time and talent. I don't think keeping things to his template is too much to ask of us in return. Maybe in the future other ideas can be used, but that time is not yet upon us.

    Will this be occurring in other forums as well?

    This is just for the SWC. It won't be replacing the main JC Forums banner. You can look at the EUC to see an example of the sort of banner we are talking about. As to whether other forums will be getting their own banners you would have to speak to @Corellian_Outrider about that.

    Oh, gotcha. Sorry about that. I must have read the OP too quickly. The EUC banner looks great--can't wait to see ours!

    Sorry for the double post. Just realized I somehow left Obi-Wan off my list and had to correct this terrible oversight! I second Bail's suggestion on this^:D

    As one of the representative from the SWC Obi fanclub, one of Jedi should be Obi-Wan...the Ewan/Obi-Wan
