PostSubject: Website Banner Contest!   Thu Mar 04, 2010 9:56 pm

It's time we had a nice looking banner here, so I think we should have a contest ending next monday.
What is needed
Size is up to you, but 600x500 pixels is good for example.
It has to say PGTF2
It has to match the forum's layout in either it's simplicity, or already established blue color scheme.
That's it. Very Happy

Your mid column is fluid width you might want to fix that or the banner would look weird. Prolly the body size. k 600x500 it is,will do if i have time.

That's not exactly true. Although the big blue banner is fluid, see the tiny line in the low center of the banner, that is the actual banner, and it is empty. If I put something there, the blue will go away, and it will be replaced with a banner.

Simplistic and sort of color coded.
I'm no good at art, but it's my attempt =)

Well, I can think something up. I kind of like the way Mirror's Edge does that red shattered pattern throughout the game, so.

Maybe I can work up on that and see where it goes. Also, Mikey's has an evil scout. He deserves rep. :I

Why is that the ideal resolution?
Just wondering how you came to that conclusion.

What you mean for the banner is the blank blue box on top.
I measured the element under 1280 x 900 resolution so yeah...

Again, the banner is not the blank blue box, the very thin line is the actual banner, so once we get rid of that and it is replaced with a new banner, the blue box will disappear.

PostSubject: Lotsa triangles   Sat Mar 06, 2010 9:06 pm

Lotsa triangles. Lots and lots of triangles.



or

My dA page if the one over there cuts off.
Which it does. Full view to get an idea of it.

Didn't really take me long, 15-20 min., which explains why it's too simple. @MC, I think the little thin line Kig's talking about is the bottom of the blue box.

See how the rounded edges of the blue box cut off? I believe that's where it is.

EDIT: I like MC's a lot better than mine. Very Happy

MC, the box you measured is fluid, so the measurements you took will only work on computers of your same resolution.
Ex: Restore your screen down (un-maximize it) and then make it smaller and bigger by dragging the edges, the blue box changes in length.

Mmm generally, for 800x600 screens a banner ought to be about 750x150px or something near that number. The blue blank rectangle provides a good height i believe. So if you choose a width of 750-ish then it would be optimized for 800x600 users. People with larger screens will see that the banner is just smack in the middle(unless kig change the alignment to left or right). To make matters simple, the best width will probably be nothing less than 700 just for testing and then when kig has tested it the winning banner can be re-sized to fit in with the proper required width.

After Saying all that, I haven't started doing one! lolz. Mines gonna be 785x160 px aswell, it's like... a common measurement i think. Ah and for dpi, 72 should be ok. 300dpi is minimal for prints but web graphix dont need to be that high(big).

Cheers~~!

Contest submissions end, in... uh, 2 days
I like Moi's quite a bit, but, I hope its not too pirated so we can't use it.

Thanks. It's usable as most of the pictures come from valve themselves. I don't have much time. Since its 2 more days that's good news. For others who'd like to create banner or searching for ideas this fankit collection seems to be good. Thought i haven't actually tried it.

http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=948441

I'm resubmitting previous banner in png here so that it fits whatever background color. (i think)

Ok, that's good, depending on how we change the layoutor background I'll choose one of those images. So far I think Moi's is official.

oh god, I didn't even notice it was spelled wrong.

Also Carl, you don't have to title the posts, just leave it blank. Almost all forums have a place for a title but they aren't used.
