First Order of Business: Forum Banner - Jacquerel - 12-22-2013 03:26 PM

Right. Now that we have a new forum it's about time we got a new banner.
The current one is a nice effort and good general idea, but it's become far too crowded and difficult to read, so me, Chocobo and Jager brainstormed up a new idea a while ago that we couldn't easily implement until now.

Instead of having one banner covered in people's sprites to the extent that you can't really tell what is going on, we are going to have a lot of banners, one of them randomly selected whenever the page is loaded.

The idea here is to have the words "Picture Wars" in much bigger white text (with black outline, then it will be visible on every skin!) as a default state and then allow people to paste their armies on top of it and after being approved I will just stick them on the end of a randomly generated image list.

Thing is that we don't actually have the words "Picture Wars" in big white text with a black outline at the moment and I'm a little busy, so if someone wants to do that for me (roughly the same image size as the current banner but with much larger writing!) then it'd be appreciated and I'll start the process of setting up a randomly selected image.

Should it be the same basic font?


RE: First Order of Business: Forum Banner - Jacquerel - 12-22-2013 03:32 PM

Obviously we don't really want it to be antialiased but anything that kind of looks appropriate for a pixel art forum should be fine.
Personally I feel like that probably means "pretty square" rather than rounded but it's your choice.
We can have several people do this too and pick the one that looks best, don't really want to rush making the image that's going to appear on top of literally every page.

Quick little something. They grey would be transparent.

Should it be more open for the armies?


RE: First Order of Business: Forum Banner - Jacquerel - 12-22-2013 04:52 PM

That looks pretty good, although I'd envisaged wider letters, a thinner border and more room around the edges for people to put their sprites around.
This isn't necessarily about appealing to me though we're putting this to a vote later :P

It looks really condensed. I'd suggest spacing the letters out a bit more, they don't need to be touching.


RE: First Order of Business: Forum Banner - Agent10361 - 12-22-2013 09:12 PM

I think the border could be a tad smaller.


RE: First Order of Business: Forum Banner - Ryteth - 12-22-2013 09:42 PM

I still have this one from when we first discussed it.

This was my example of how people would place their armies.

I made a font thing a while ago and I think it looks okay so I decided to throw this together.

Pretty much just copied Mr.F's colours.


RE: First Order of Business: Forum Banner - AHappyElite - 12-23-2013 07:56 PM

Xron has the best one, plenty of room for the armies, and beautiful font. Doesn't pain the eyes either.


RE: First Order of Business: Forum Banner - Agent10361 - 12-25-2013 04:20 AM

I like Xrons too.

I feel like my laptop will be powered up again soon, so I will be able to put all my armies on it.


RE: First Order of Business: Forum Banner - tiniuclx - 12-25-2013 08:09 AM

I agree, XRon's quite nice.


RE: First Order of Business: Forum Banner - haribo841 - 12-25-2013 03:28 PM

Take it easy, as I understand it will be a few banners will be randomly selected during page load. Chao, which borders can size banner? They have to be just black and white?
As you will have moments explain please.

Hello there. I see you are new. It'd be nice if you introduced yourself in the "Discussion" forums first before you start randomly necroing threads (which is not something you should do without a good reason).


RE: First Order of Business: Forum Banner - AHappyElite - 08-22-2015 01:30 AM

Oh hey 2013 everyone


RE: First Order of Business: Forum Banner - Jacquerel - 08-22-2015 02:13 AM

this subforum didn't end up being very temporary


RE: First Order of Business: Forum Banner - Ryteth - 08-22-2015 07:55 AM

Everything is temporary when you think about it.


RE: First Order of Business: Forum Banner - Battul - 08-22-2015 08:20 AM

There is awfully huge number of people lurking, nobody ever posts though.
We need new banner to make them post.


RE: First Order of Business: Forum Banner - AHappyElite - 08-23-2015 12:58 AM

I made a new avatar, felt pretty exciting at the time.
