    *laugh* Thanks for the vote of confidence! :) It's kreleia's city, she or another Phoenixian (?) should do it... ;) :)

    Your banner... I got this...

    http://www.stormpages.com/nonono.gif

    There wasn't anything there... I'm thinking maybe you can't directly link, but I'm not sure... ?[face_plain] Nope, I just can't see it. I think it needs to be *on* your page... perhaps you could create a page just for the banner? you know, like banner.html and put the pic on the page...?

    Yeah i got that nonono thing too. Interesting.

    And i think we're called Phoenicians, but then again, I'm technically a Tempian, but whatever. :)

    Oh, of course it'd be with a 'C'. One of those crazy English rules. :p Thanks! The name is cool... sounds really European too. :D

    Anyway... pretty good banner, Emperor_Dan. Much better than what I'd make my first time around. :p I do have a few suggestions though... work on making the images blend together more. I can see the outlines of where they all were added. Other than that, I think it's great. ;)

    yes, what Bria said. If you like, post the source images and let me have a go at it too, we'll see what we each can come up with.

    Emperor Dan, that looks really good! Yeah, except for the Phoenix mis-spelling. [face_laugh] (at least you noticed, right?) I'd try blending the images together a bit more, too - maybe use the mask filter to blur the lines. Other than that, I like it! It's a good look for our desert theme!

    Yeah, I believe "Phoenician" is the correct term. ;) Although, officially, I'm a Chandler-ite. **laugh** But that's okay - our freeways are starting to do a much better job of connecting this sprawling desert city-scape we call home.

    Yeah, I totally agree. I just threw the images in there to see what everyone thought. I never thought I was finished :)

    Thanks for all the cool comments :)

    No problem. Like I said, it just needs some more work. ;)

    Wow, thats pretty cool. Nice job.

    Well here it is, my second attempt at the banner. It still needs a bit of touching up and it'd be nice to know what we're calling ourselves, but here it is anyway. :)

    i'm diging it! I'm thinking though maybe move the lettering father to right, so we see more of that skyline, make it a bit smaller. maybe add Pheonix, Arizona.

    But i love that blending with the bush and the skyline!

    The logo looks great. I love the silveriness (is that a word? ?[face_plain]) of it. :)

    Love the banner too. The burning bush (cuz of the 'phoenix' right?) is a nice touch! :)

    **whispering** Bria, I think the "burning bush" is supposed to be red-rock from the Grand Canyon. :)

    **sits back in awe** Wow. Dang. Okay, we have some serious competition going here with these banners. The reason I haven't designed one is because I really don't remember what my original idea was (had something around Christmas-time, now it's faded), and the rest of you are doing a fantastic job at it anyway. ^.^

    This is too cool! We'll have to vote soon. Keep 'em coming, though!

    This is the banner format tf.n uses.

    any thoughts, kreleia?

    A friend sent me the pic of Phoenix. Glad u like it. I have had some free time the past few days. I registered phoenixfanforce.com in hopes that we can get this thing off the ground and set up some fun gatherings. I have available server space if we want to have our own website. Of course, the domain could always point elsewhere. I'm new to the area (been here a couple years), so it would be great to meet some local film fans.

    Great banner. We need some TIE fighters flying over the city. ;)

    Hmm, I think we've found the explanation for the notorious "Phoenix lights", a few lost TIE fighter jocks trying to get to Mos Eisley. ;)

    Oh... [face_blush] I knew that. Yeah, really I did... :D

    Guess it shows I've never been to the Grand Canyon, huh? :p
