I'm wondering if maybe Troy might look better if his image was reversed so that it looks more like he's bursting in from the edge of the screen.

subsilver2 and SkyLineBlue have both been updated. Both have smaller or cut down versions of the same images I used for proglass and both also retain the original Eggplant Mike pic in the rotation as well.

And Hestia also joins their ranks. It has the same image set as the above two with the only difference being it has the site logo text in there as well.

hahahaha!!!

I had switched back to Hestia this morning because I was too confused by the other styles... and just a moment ago I noticed Toilet Woman glaring at me, which made me devolve into a fit of giggles. Now there is Ronald with a flesh wound... excellent. Yayayay! Thanks Ponder et al.!

I got the sun shaking a fist at me, and then a mortally wounded Ronald. Awesome!

Yeah, I'm sorry about that, I've mostly been posting stuff from the board style I have (which ever that is). I've been sorta figuring the actual drawings are my contribs, but haven't really looked at transparency and such. Feel free to do whatever with them.

I've been doing them as BMPs because I figure that gives you the most information to work with. I wasn't sure if PNGs would be as scalable or editable, and the BMPs are fairly small size anyway (about 116K).

If I do any more I'll try PNG and see how that goes. I'm out of town through the weekend though and am not sure what I can do in the meanwhile.

The Troy looks pretty good flipped, but I wonder if it might be better if the text was on the left and he was on the right of the image. His direction is fairly iconic after all.

These are awesome. I am now enjoying even the front page of the forums thanks to the different banners.

does it always choose the same banner every time? when i first come onto the main forum page i get stabby grimmace. then when i click on "new posts since last visit" i get fire breathing mike. this happens every time i come back here. i haven't bothered to find if it repeats the same pattern after that because from there i just click on new replies instead of the next page of threads so i don't always see the banner...

ok, i still see stabby grimace a little more than the others, but it's not always the first one when i visit the site now. i don't know if you made any changes, but either way it's even better now!

Yeah that's a good idea so that's what I did. The Troys are now in the mix.
