now that is bright... i mean sun going nova bright....
looks cool as *(family board)* though...
I absolutely adore the close-up on Yoda and the cluster of Jedi silhouettes with ignited sabers!
Different, but cool.
I don't like this. Too much gold.
s'alright, might get a little boring after a while though
I was getting sick of the blue. Wasn't it blue the banner before the last one?
You guys are official...you could make your own banner and color scheme.
I hate this!!! Too *family board*ing bright!
actually sebulba, I've got one made, haven't finished the color scheme for the board though...
Excuse me while I turn down the brightness on my monitor. Damn online comics showing up real dark.
I REALLY like it this way, it's so happy
I'm frell-ing gonna hear about this...oh well!
Yeah, and it matches all my Pittsburgh Steelers/Penguins stuff
((looks at watch)) how fast before some demands we make our own banner?
EDIT: For the record, it's OK...easy to read IMO.
I think we should make our own banner.
Edit: Woohoo, less then 10 minutes.
I was thinking blue and red to match the Injuns and Jedi/Sith and Republic/Imperial colors...
I thought we had our own banner already. Let's put it up.
put it up put it up
Do we?...I know BMack and Anrev have been working on a banner for the website; but I haven't heard anything in a while...I didn't know if it's finished.
And since I'm the one who has to do this (CR) what have you boys got?
i'll move the banner stuff to our webserver tonight. we all pretty much agreed on a banner. well not agreed but no one *(family board)*ed about it. all i needed to do on this one is make the text a touch less fuzzy. won't take long, just need to tweak an effect setting.
anrev set up the forum colors in this here sample (doesn't web broswer text in OS X look nice?). i'll take care of organizing them as well. then i'll get you the info you need krash...
and don't worry, it will be all nice-and-laid-out-all-cognizant-like for your computer-saavy* tush. it'll be really easy.
*computer-savvy krash= big fat lie
I still like the lettering on Anrev's version...I thought we were keeping that (because it doesn't cover most of the jedi council picture.
*computer-savvy krash= big fat lie FRELL YOU! At least I'm trying!!!
i'll work with it... this is one of the few times i actually don't like the copperplate 33bc font that i originally used on anrev's example. i think trajan looks better, but i'll try and make it smaller and all that rot.
BTW, the jedi council is just there for filler not as a focus. supposed to be sublte. otherwise i wouldn't have screened it in the background.
I understand, but if you look at the current banner...you can make out exactly what the images are; without them taking attention away from the "Jedi Council Forums" title. I just think (being a jedi-based fanforce) it would be cool to see the council chamber more.
checkout detroits's board. you can tell it's R2, but their logo screens quite a bit of him. that's the effect i'm going for.
You also have to consider quality of source image... in that one's case, it wasn't good.
The funny thing about Detroit's banner...you have their logo (of R2D2 dome) over a faded image of R2D2. So you get a layer effect. That what you were going for?
Question, should we use the same banner on all parts of the website?
Costume making? (one suggestion)
Or should we come up with unique pages for each; keeping the banner strictly for our boards (which can be linked from the website)?
this banner is just for the forum... not the website...
i don't like being limited in the layout of a scratch built site...
I'll say it again here... I REALLY like the current banner and stuff. All the sabers are YELLOW!
