As cataclysmic changes are happening all around us, the time has come for a change to our front page. We will be giving 1,000 gold to whomever creates the banner we use! I'd like to get something new up before the expansion. So dust off your photoshop skills (or MSpaint if you spend all your money on cam girls like PJ) and get your ideas submitted soon!

A few questions though..

Size of the banner in pixels? Hmm, big? Scaling it down isn't an issue, so the higher quality the better.

Color scheme? We like the current red/grey/black/white scheme. It's easy on the eyes and matches the expansion theme nicely.

Any particular image? Something themed for the expansion (sup deathwing? alexstraza?) totally open to ideas

Any animation? As long as we don't run into long pageload times from it I see no reason not to. That is...if you want to put in the extra time :P

jpg or png? JPEG seems best to me but we can work with whatever.

Deadline? As I said in the post, I want something before Cata launches, so lets aim for December 5th.

There is a line...between funny and immature...find it, and you might be 1K richer.

but I'm not opposed to professional and serious either

I played a bit, though I seem to be lacking creative motivation. The size is equal to the current header, and I kept the same overall color scheme. The font-face is something I was playing with. I'm not sure how I feel about it, but I believe it has a professional, clear appearance. Also, I wanted to use something other than another picture of Deathwing, but wasn't able to find something else that seemed to fit. Perhaps a bit more searching and some more time spent on this later and I'll be able to produce something a bit more original.

I'm not really interested in the gold reward, just felt like doing something up. I'll post some more if I get around to making them. I'm not sure what the rules are regarding multiple entries from the same person, but I figure the more the better. ;)

Saucery...I think you were right up the alley of whatt the banner should be. We are going in to Cataclysm. Deathwing is the major player in the expansion.

I don't really think there is any reason to submit anymore Banner's. This is it. This one wins. There can be no other banner. I will pay gold to have this used as our banner. At least for a little while. DO IT! IT'S GENIUS

I wanted to see if I could throw a subtle animation on one. This is a gif, but I have the original as a flash file. Open image image in a new windor or click the link. Both flash and gif is a little over a meg, so it may be too slow loading.

I deleted a couple posts. I don't want to see comments about what is or isn't good. I am glad to see so many of you involved and trying out different things (thats the entire reason I did this) "None of us is as smart as all of us"

Several of them look very good and there is still tons of time left. I can't wait to see what we end up using. If we want to talk about where I like the potential, you would see me favoring where my priests name originated ;)

But it's not just my vote...keep posting and improving!
