Hey, just wanted to let you know that I'm finally able to start work on that new banner. Sorry that I'm just now getting to it, I've been really busy finishing up my ICND classes and going for my Cisco certification, but I just wrapped up the class on Friday and plan on taking a couple days of downtime to keep my head from exploding.
Well, you know what they say - you can't please everyone (I know, I've tried it many times too - someone is always pissed about something). Still, I'm glad you like it - maybe next time I will do a more generic one that isn't quite so animated (all the movement, fades, etc.) as sort of a compromise.
I'm glad the graphic worked out - I wonder if people realize that really is Beechbum in the graphic! I'm just glad I found some random guy near the Zychion bar - it was perfect too, that is where the story began.
Do you have:
a good "stock photo" of either Jeffe or Beechbum in the duster?
an avatar you think could pass for Elf? (loren maybe?)
a group shot with several of the Irkens?
I'm thinking a 40-60 frame animation with the same dimensions as your current banner. Keep in mind - the pictures don't need to be full body - a good bust or head shot would be fine. Just kicking around some ideas...
Seriously - how big of a banner do you need for the CYOA stuff? I think I might make an animated GIF like the ones used for the top bar - something that you could use to signify the newest chapter (just use the old one for the ones which have already closed, then people could tell the difference).
Hey, just got that +rep message you left. I'm always glad to give input and provide some fun discussion, just keep writing the good stories and I will be happy to keep pitching in. I was going to +rep the story post, but I have to spread more rep before giving you rep again.
