    Up!!

    Okay, now that we're official, let's get this banner!!!

    Rogue_Sith, did you have any others that you wanted to show?

    Was there anyone else that designed a banner? I can host images if you need me to! Let me know!

    An animated jpg? Heheh. Are you crunched? It would be an animated gif. File size is important and gifs are small. Have you ever noticed the distortion found in some jpgs? When a jpg file size is small and compressed, that happens. Really clear jpgs are uncompressed and sharp, yet the file sizes are large. An animated gif is the way to go. Go look at some animated banners. Let me know if you ever find one that is a jpg. :)

    :D Subjugator, that's why I asked. The banners for this board have to be in .jpg format. If there was a way you could've done a .jpg that would look good *and* be a small file, then yes, animated would be great. Unfortunately, we're only aware of being able to do .jpg stuff at the moment. I'll double check, though, and see if we could do a .gif.

    Night, that's a great banner! Only problem, the words are a bit hard to read against the background. Maybe do a drop shadow, or even a glow of "holiness" (as Lobot_Omy put it on the Icon thread). :) Thanks for the contribution! (btw, where are you from?)

    ummm Jersey :D
    i asked int he other thread, but i might as well ask here too, do you mind me hanging around you board? I can leave if you want to keep it more for the Peonix Peeps.

    http://wind.prohosting.com/foby/PFF.html Two new images. I couldn't quite find a drop shadow or glow tool, this is the first real time i'm using this program.

    I'm not from Phoenix, so you can totally ignore this if you'd like, but I have an idea (famous last words ;) :D )...

    Phoenix is a hot place, much like Tattoine. Phoenix is also a legendary bird that doesn't really exist, much like a mirage. Perhaps you could be called, The Phoenix Mirage - Relief from the Tatooine Suns, or something to that effect.

    Kind of simple, really, but it might work, if ppl were interested. :) Of course if nobody likes the idea that is ok too. ;)

    Good luck with your banner. I was so happy when we got ours. :) Then for our website, Vader2000 modified it a tad. ;) I love the little MPLS skyline that was included. :)

    I think a cool banner would be to find that shot of Obi-Wan and Luke standing on the cliff looking at a distant Mos Eisley, then replace the spaceport with the downtown Phoenix skyline. You could have the line 'you will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villiany...we must be cautious' and 'Phoenix FanForce' below that. Maybe even superimpose 2 suns in the sky to match Tatooine. Just a thought.

    Bria, I like your idea - the only thing is that "The Phoenix Mirage" sounds like a casino name. **grin** Not a bad thing, no, but unless we go out to the Indian reservations, or over to Vegas, we can't gamble. :D (I don't know how well gambling would fly with our under-age members - and their parents -, either)

    Personally, I've thought about incorporating the Phoenix City logo (it's a phoenix bird) with either the Imperial logo, Rebel logo or both (if it's not too busy) for our FF symbol. Anyone?

    Gavin, I'm really liking your idea. [face_laugh] See if you can pull it off. :)

    kreleia ^.^

    EDIT: BTW, I have no problem with you hanging out over here, Night. Is the Jersey board really that dead? **grin**

    Hey, you only have to be 18 to gamble at some of the Indian Reservations. I went with a couple of friends once right after High School graduation. (I'll never go back, but at least I can say I've been gambling) :D

    You know, I always sort of thought the Phoenix emblem looked like the Rebel insignia anyway... :)

    kreleia You know, it does.... :)

    Awesome idea for a logo. ;)

    Gavin's idea is really good. I like it.

    Night You are most welcome to visit the MPLS board. That goes for everyone here as well. Minnesota... cold hands, warm heart. :D We're a friendly bunch (though a tad weird at times :D), we do NOT sound like we walked right off the set of the movie Fargo (which, by the way, is in NORTH DAKOTA, NOT MN!!!! :p), so stop on by sometime. :)

    k! i shall! :) thanks for letting me hang around. I don't know if there is a Jersey board, but i do hang out in the New York Board, which you are all welcome to visit anytime. I also hang out in Western Australia, and now Minnesota! hehe You guys are cool though

    i'm still looking for that specific frame from the movie too, if anyone has it, tell me so i can stop browsing in 6 browsers at once :D

    Kreleia or Elan-Rai, is there any chance theforce.net could provide us with that image for my banner idea? They seem to have a ton of Star Wars related imagery archived for use throughout the site. I'm sure I've seen that umm... scene (please allow myself to introduce... myself) in print somewhere but I'm not having any luck tracking it down. Thanks. As far as I can tell Night4554 hasn't found it online yet either.

    And PS. I think your logo idea's pretty great.

    [face_plain] Gavin, y'know, I don't have the slightest clue. I'm sure TF.N has it somewhere, but I wouldn't even know where to begin when contacting someone. Elan-Rai, ideas?

    I've always thought that the Phoenix city logo looks like the Rebel insignia too. **grin** I remember the first time I saw it (when we moved down), I had to do a big ol' double-take. [face_laugh]

    [image=http://drivingcat.home.mindspring.com/images/phoenix.gif]

    (that's scanned from a Basha's grocery bag. I'm still working on cleaning it up a bit before actually messing with it - it's got that funky dark outline that really bugs me.)

    You're welcome! I'm someone who usually has multiple browsers windows open too. :D It's really embarrassing when you post something to the wrong thread! [face_blush] Thankfully I've only done that once and I caught it right away. :D

    :eek: Whoa! That *does* look like the Rebellion logo! :)

    Geesh you miss a little you miss a lot here anymore. :D Wow, those are some nice banners. I do have one I'm working on, but I think I'll scrap it and do a new one using some of these ideas. The Phoenix logo idea is great. I've been trying to do something with the grand canyon as that screams AZ to me, but we'll see...

    OK...

    Banner!

    What do you all think? Personally I think kreleia or Bria should do it, they make excellent icons :)

    EDIT: Spelled Phoenix wrong on the banner! LOL
