You could probrably do the same with a GIF...

Anyways

Banner colors and style should compliment the existing forum color scheme.
The only color is that blueish navy color, the rest is gray and different shades of blue. Except for the banner having yellow, what other colors should we use?

Indeed.

I wouldn't say that having an animated banner if going to make you more likely to win though...

Umm...white?

Most of the forum background is a very very light blue. I think it's E1E1E2.

I'm guessing: Blue (any shade) Silver, Gray, White. Well i'm guessing they would be the main ones.

Just use colours you see on the site.

So is mine ok or no then cause its colors are kinda off a lil. :(
Nah, I think they're allright.

Anyway off with the off-topic stuff, and lets leave it to the posting (I think i'll start a discussion thread for this one).

OH heh the split version turned into discussion, Ill just go back and edit my last post in there... ;)

I havent been here for very long, but I like how it all looks plain. Nothing distracting you, but some of those banners submitted look all... I dont know... distracting? I hope it still fits the classic theme of TH :(

Go look at Ilendil and my banners. Everyone else's just seem to be the word The Helper.net with some pretty colours in the background.

And Mase's one :nuts:. Yes, I know I sound harsh, but some of them... Come on, you really think they'd be put up there?

I'm trying to go to a Professional and "natural" style one that is easy one the eye.

Oh well, enough jabbering from me.

EXACTLY. I think that the our current plain, no-frills layout is wonderful. It adds an air of professionality to the forum. Sort of a feelling of "we're so good, we don't need to look flashy to attract people." But not really as bragging-ish as that. Just no distractions (as Rad said), no gimmicks, just quality content.

And yeah, Husky's and Ilendil's banners are best in that regard.

Sort of. What I mean is that they're professional looking, not crazy colors and fonts and backgrounds and you can't really read it like a lot of the others are.

Hmm, Ryoko's is my new favorite one.

And I like how the computer in the banner is running Mac OS X.

except it says "RYOKO CONCEPT AND DESIGN" in the background :rolleyes: , and that big pack of text on the right seems like more of an advertisement of what we do, clutters it up too much. I'd say put that frustraded comp sketch guy we have now there instead, and maybe some small text beneath him. "keep it simple, stupid"

I really like yours Ryokos, its simple and professional, the right text doesn't seem necessary though, it just doesn't fit in.
Hows it look on the main page?

    My power has been off most of the last 2 days. We had a generator installed 3 years ago though, so we're staying warm. Water is another issue...
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Where I live has a pool so we are using that to get water to flush the toilets. We have enough bottled water to drink and brush teeth and stuff but it has been a few days and no shower though....
  • Varine Varine:
    I had some water in gallon jugs, and got our water back on yesterday. We don't seem to have any leaks, but I haven't crawled down there to look yet.

    a positive could come out of this. So many people trapped at home could put a dent in the covid numbers in Texas
  • Varine Varine:
    That dude, Tom Boyd, is really upset about the backlash from his "it's your fault you're freezing" thing because he claims he resigned before saying it, so it wasn't like he said it in his official capacity or anything.
  • jonas jonas:
    Almost as if he was saying "screw you guys, I'm going home"
  • Varine Varine:
    I'm fairly new here still but that seems to be the analogous message by several of our politicians.

  • Varine Varine:
    The bar I'm at is still requiring masks anyway, and most of the people that come there are pretty good about sanitizing their hands and shit.
