Thanks KukY, that was fast! :)

Saw the wiki page http://developer.wz2100.net/wiki/Banners?version=1

So when is all this going there? :wink:

Well, authors should place their own banners there. I'll do some more writing and place my banners there.

Ok, I completed the wiki page and it is ready for authors to place their banners:
Banners
I wrote some basic instructions for making banners, wrote short licensing info and placed lots of links where you can find materials for banners.

Those dimesions 468x60 are for this forum, not really sure what the general dimensions could be on most other forums. And thanks again for your efforts, and of course KukY's as well.. :D

EDIT: @ Claydoe, don't forget my earlier suggestion.

WOAH! That's awesome too, I would love a sticker of this as well!!

EDIT: IMHO, You should definitely post a high resolution version of this on the sticker thread!

This one should go on the Banner Wiki too, but I don't know who to give credit for it, as it's a collaborated effort between KukY and Claydoe.

I just made another banner:
Image
It has been resized to 400x40 to achive bigger widht:height ratio so Nexus sign could also fit in.
banner2.zip
PSD of the new banner.
(49.6 KiB) Downloaded 264 times
Also, I am working on a PHP script which imitates a random banner image from a list.
That way once that image/script would be one banner, and in other case another banner. :D
It works fairly good, but fails with images on other servers. :(

It's a good one, but I'm wondering whether the hovertank isn't very visible, maybe another color (like yellow perhaps) would contrast well with the black background? Just a suggestion if you don't mind :)

I am trying to show the conflict between Project and Nexus, especialy the diffrence in tech. So it must stay black. Maybe it could be lightened a bit to achieve better contrast, but it is still visible enough.

Tried that, and it doesn't help much.

And I found out the problem in the random banner script, and fixed it.
What do you guys think about that approach of using multiple banners at same time?

Oh , Ok, I get the theme now, it's visible enough then I guess. Nice thinking about the theme :3
