Welcome! This thread is the official gathering spot for those interested in creating banners for the Fan Sites forum. There are some very simple guidelines and helpful links below that will assist you in the creation of a banner, and as always please don't hesitate to ask if you have questions! Why ask for new banners? Because we're looking for new material! The idea here is to gather banners over time so we can have a constant rotation of new banners. When does this end? This is an open call thread, so there is no limitation or time constraint on when banners can be submitted. You are free to make as many as you like - just be aware that not all ideas will necessarily be used. How do I make a banner? There is a great guide on how to make a banner in this thread. Please read through that thread (especially the first post) and make sure you understand what is needed with a banner. Also please make sure your images are properly sized and aligned before submitting! What are the rules? The titles "TheForce.Net" and "Fan Sites Forum" must be visible, and images should represent web design and/or images from sites like StarWars.com, TheForce.Net, etc. You may also use images and other elements from sites that are announced in threads here in the forum, but please make sure you ask the owner's permission before doing so. Who do I send my banner to? You may send your completed banner submission to DVeditor, and also feel free to post your work here for critique by other Fan Sites users. What happens if my idea is chosen? If your banner is chosen for use in the Fan Sites forum, it will be submitted to the tech administrator here on the boards and put into rotation. Once uploaded you will receive VIP-ship for two weeks along with a title stating that you created a banner for Fan Sites. (Note that the title and VIP-ship are optional - it's just a way to thank you for your hard work.) If you have questions, please either post them here or drop me a PM. Have fun!
