    I've just logged on and I am sorry to say that in my humble opinion...

    EEEUUUURRRGGGHHHH!!!

    I applaud the effort that has gone into creatng the banner but for me nnnnoooooooo! and what's with the random floating heads?

    There are too many penguins especially the one that is roaring, and the colour scheme, granted fits with an ice scene but not with the rest of the page.

    Basically I am a fan of Star Wars and sci-fi in general and I will gladly admit to liking Disney films especially the animated ones but to theme the banner on Happy Feet, to me, doesn't fit.

    I don't wish to offend anybody as I appreciate that it is a diffucult task to design a new banner and the skills required to actually publish it more than exceed mine, it's just that I stand by my earlier comments that this is essentially a Star Wars fan site. I am not that stubborn as to welcome other genres/themes/tastes and will be more than happy to contribute my penny's worth in any threads about whatever. Aside of Star Wars I am into, in no particular order, Motorsport (esp. Senna), Anime, Commando Comics, Martial Arts flicks, Movies, Music, Computers (mainly gaming), Sport and generally most things.

    In regards to the comment about the different ships, and in danger of creating a whole load of work for somebody, maybe there could be a competition to guess all the sci-fi ships/vehicles that appear on the banner and following that the banner could be changed to something else and another competition could be run to guess more items. At the risk of sounding contradictory, in this instance the banner could depict various themes (i.e. random James Bond characters, (as there's a random floating head) football managers, etc...) as there would be a purpose to there being non Star Wars (or sci-fi) images.

    To end this personal rant on a positive note, I do think the Star Wars character penguins are way cool so they could stay and maybe be expanded on.

    To finish, as I step down from my soap box, these are my personal expressions and I do not intend to upset anybody so I apologise if I have.

    LMAO!!

    This is an old April Fool's banner which I made a few years back :) I just wanted to see it up again for a bit :p

    Thought it might spur the designers on a bit ;)

    That's the standard FF banner, Louis :p

    It's just gonna be there until a decision is made or people come up with more banners to compete with Cozmic's.
