    The Fan Fiction moderating team (Healer_Leona, VaderLVR64, JadeSolo and rhonderoo) has decided to begin a banner rotation scheme similar to the one used in the ROTS forum.

    Banners may be submitted at any time, using this thread to post links to banners you have created. New banners will be added to the rotation based on a vote by the Fan Fic moderating team. Any ties will be broken by DarthSapient. We reserve the right to offer suggestions for changes before we agree on uploading a banner. If you'd like to submit banners for Before The Saga, The Saga, Beyond the Saga and The Classic Fan Fiction Forum feel free to put them here also.

    For banner specifications, guidelines and tutorials, check out The Official Banner Makers' Thread and Grimby the Hutt's awesome banner guide.

    Suggested Themes

    <ul>
    <li>Ladies of SW (both EU and movies)</li>
    <li>Smugglers (Han, Lando, Talon Karrde, Booster Terrik, etc.)</li>
    <li>Imperial Characters (Chiss, OT imperials, comic, etc.)</li>
    <li>Rebel Characters (Mon Monthma, Bel Iblis, Dodanna, and the OT gang, of course)</li>
    <li>Clone Troopers and Commandos </li>
    <li>Jedi</li>
    <li>Sith </li>
    <li>OT </li>
    <li>PT</li>
    <li>Couples (Luke/Mara, Anakin/Padme, Han/Leia, etc.)</li>
    <li>Comics </li>
    <li>Writing </li>
    <li>Cantina/Outlander/Community type banners</li>
    </ul>



    You may use also use this thread to submit requests for a specific banner in the rotation. The forum managers will rotate randomly, but frequently.

    Also note, if your favorite couple, character, movie, whatever...is not made into a banner, we as moderators can't help that. The only way we can upload and rotate a banner is if a) it's created and b) it's done well enough to be considered for rotation.

    Along with this, we realize there are different strokes for different folks. Meaning we don't anticipate having the most popular banner(s) up every day. So expect to see a variety. Including Shirtless Anakin. ;)

    I know there are many talented designers out there, and we should have lots of fun with this!

    Feel free to PM a forum moderator with any questions.

    Quick question for you regarding the couple banner. I remember you saying for the contest it couldn't be one couple it had to be several. Is that still the case or can we stick to one couple?

    Since we'll have plenty, one couple is fine.


    A warning, though. We won't get into couple wars with 'ships. The only thing we ask is for you to stick to the Fan Fiction guidelines, and that means stick with what you CAN write. That means Jaina/Jag, Jaina/Kyp, Jaine/Zekk, Jacen/Tenel Ka, Jacen/Dani, etc. We aren't limiting that because that would only leave us with three couples, BUT we aren't going to get into there's Jaina/Jag banner and there isn't a Jaina/Kyp banner, or there's an Anakin/Barriss banner and there isn't an Anakin/Padme banner, etc, etc. We are going SOLELY on banner quality and if it is within Fan Fic guidelines. :)

    Man JL you have some incredible talent with banner making! All of those were fantastic though I admit being biased to the two Qui-Gon ones too bad there's not a way for individual users to put their own banners up only for themselves :p So that everyone could see something different :D

    Edit -- I expect to see the Qui-Gon banner up for both my birthday and Diane's next year! :D :p

    Jennifer, awesome banners. Qui #1 is very loverly. Makes my heart skip a beat and... best leave it at that. ;) :D [face_love]

    The Obi one cracks me up!! The middler one just looks like a pose for some sassy magazine... PlayJedi perhaps?? [face_laugh] [face_laugh]

    Old Guys??? Not so old really and another stellar one.

    That Obi-Wan banner... :* =P~ That PlayJedi picture is one of my favorites. [face_mischief]

    The others are amazing, too! I like the Qui-Gon ones because they're...green...yeah, that's it. :p

    Good job on the banners Jennifer_Lyn! I especially like the obi-wan one! =D=

    I was wondering, how do you get your banners to stay so clear? Every time I save anything in JPG format it gets that grainy look to it.

    Thanks,
    ~KT


    EDIT: Never mind, I figured out how to do it. Thanks anyway! :)

    It's gorgeous! [face_love] I love all the red. :D

    Leona, you'll be pleased to know that I'm working on a Qui-Gon banner just for you. I can't promise it'll actually be any good, though. :p

    To sort of quote from Pelly Welly's sick Palpatine fic:

    Oh my Sweet Holy Darkside yes!

    Edit: J_L, I don't know if it's my computer or what but I can't seem to see the links to your banners.

    Two banners, for Before and Beyond - I actually made both quite a while ago and my style has changed (not to mention new images being available, esp. in Beyond), but I think they're okay, and thought I'd submit them here for the moderators' consideration. :)

    Before
    and Beyond

    Those are awesome!!! I'm going to see if Rave will start uploading soon. He's uploading our other banners for rotation in the next day or so.
