    For those that have made a banner for Canada General (I believe there is only 2): please email the pictures to me at staff@youngjediniagara.com

    I'll have the banner changed over shortly after.

    When can we expect to see the new banners? And who will be first?

    Anyone have a problem with rotating the banner monthly?

    When your banner is up I'll give you a title. Something like: "Banner Designer - Canada General Forum"

    Sounds good to me, however I have one request - "When your banner is up I'll give you a title." I think KitFist0 and I would both agree to just keep the titles on always.
    It gets kinda confusing ... "gee, those guys over in Canada General have a banner contest every month?"

    Maybe a title of "Graphic Designer - Canada General" for both of us. Or is "graphic Desginer" for something else like in Primrodo's? If it is I'll be more than happy to make more graphics ;)

    Kit, sorry to hop in all of a sudden (and the others must wonder "who the hell is this guy, we've never seen him before !!"), but I'd try and make your banner have a better flow. Honnestly, the cuts are too aggressive. Make them fade from one another. Also, try to color correct that snow trooper a bit, a little whiter would be better.

    Other thing, I'd put the logos of hockey teams in the left strip, they look a lil' messy where they are right now.

    Just a little friendly advice. :)

    Well... I don't have anything to say about that one. Really, really good. Simple and effective.

    Which doesn't mean Kit's is bad. Not at all, it just needs a little more tweaking. :)

    First banner is up...(need to get a GSA to add the reply and ad graphic)

    Now we need to change the colours...I'll work on doing that.

    I believe atomik's is up now, so I'll give him a title. We will rotate the banner and title every 2 weeks to start.

    Yes, I do. There's about a one inch gap between the banner and the background.

    Yep. I get the impression that the banner size is not the same as the standard for the board. ([Yoda]Very interesting looking gap it is, yes? [/Yoda])

    Yes there is a gap. My image sizes are correct acording to the outline provided on the first page. I brought the images into Frontpage with this page's html and there is a gap as well. So it has something to do with this page's html...

    Eidt: I'm a big goof ;)
    Disregard the above. Use [link=http://www.geocities.com/atomikjedi911/main_bg2.jpg]this[/link] image instead as the background and it will fit perfectly.
    Sorry [face_blush]

    It's been weeks and that still hasn't been fixed. What the heck is the hold up?

    Kit, have you implemented any of JEDIBYKNIGHT's suggestions?

    Heres a preview of a banner I'm working on.
    It's an early draft, so comments are appreciated.

    Ahh it's about time someone told me its not working :p

    Here's a working one:

    [image=http://200.72.134.171/cdref/tdh/img/CG_preview.gif]

    I'm still missing the side, the curve, etc. Like I said, this is still an early version.

    What do you think?
