MAIN HEADER BANNERS:
As you well see, we're short a few dozen banners
I'd like users to once again pitch in their own designs

Requirements:
900x200 pixels (no smaller, no larger)
Video Games related
Text suggested (without quotation marks): "G.U.N."
"GUNetwork"; "Gaming Underground Network";
"Modding Community"; "GUN Modding";
"Come for the Mods, Stay for the Community"

Restrictions
No Screenshots except for the Screenshot Contest winners
(Fan Art or Promo Art acceptable)
No bright backgrounds unless they're balanced well with content.
No nudity. No .gif animations.
____________________________________________________
____________________________________________________

CATEGORY/FORUM BUTTONS:
I'm sure you've noticed we've replaced all the "VGU" buttons with "GUN" buttons.
We're open to replacing them as well if you can come up with something better.
Max size 50x50 pixels. If you make a set, they can be smaller.
.gif's are encouraged! Show me your best animations
Try to match the chromatic setup of the website.
The set layout is:
Set 1:
Active Category (means there's been new posts in one of its subforums)
Inactive Category (no new posts in any of its subforums)
Locked Category (usually not visible to members. means no new posts can be made in any of its subforums)

Set 2:
Active Subforum (means that there have been new posts in some of its topics)
Inactive Subforum (no new posts in any of its topics)
Locked Subforum (only staff can post topics or replies in them)

____________________________________________________
____________________________________________________

WHO IS ONLINE IMAGES:
Time to update these bad boys too:
https://i.imgur.com/jKF3BM8.png
https://i.imgur.com/FVbzKLy.png
https://i.imgur.com/FXreHO5.png

105x220 pixels
.png or .gif (animations allowed)
Preferably not bordered because its section may extend vertically,
depending on how many members are online at once.

You can find them at the bottom of the main page for now and until I replace them with anything new that doesn't say VGU anymore.

____________________________________________________
____________________________________________________

FORUM FAVICON

This:
it's the icon in the tab of your browser (and bookmark)
same size, similar colors.

____________________________________________________
____________________________________________________


The Graphics Specialists should submit some of their own, but it's also up to them which will be implemented, by majority vote. All members are invited to participate and submit materials!

That's about it for now  Thumbs Up
Fire up your graphics programs and let's see some magic!
Looking forward to seeing your submissions!
cheers

very well Dancey thank you for pitching in, Mattafex!
It's quite a good start!

I have a few words for each banner, if you don't mind,
supposing that you've kept the .psd files and can slightly edit them hehe
I'll number them in the order they were posted so that it's easier to know of which I'm talking about

1. & 2. have a really nice image (even though I don't know from which game)
though the 1st has that repetition if you spell out the acronym:
"Gaming Underground Network Network"
so I suggest we stick with the simple "G.U.N." or replace "Network" with "Modding"
I like the text fonts and the shadow effect to it.

3. & 4. - love the source material and text font. on both, the text seems to be placed weirdly.
I'd move it to the upper right corner (same height as the first of them, same distance from the tr4p as the second of them), so that it balances out the empty space and doesn't feel awkward. alternatively, I'd remove the cigar, because you can't really tell what it is and where it comes from.

5. the middle finger is a bit vulgar for a top banner, but if you use another GTA V image, I'd be totally cool with it.

6. it all seems partial to the left here. like someone tilted it and the vault boy and the text slid too far left. there's too much empty space between the vault boy. try to center their ensemble a bit better here.

anyway, those are just my suggestions

we'd have to get some more feedback for these before we put them in rotation
also, don't be afraid to rehash old banners we've used from you, as long as you replace the text,
they should be good to go back in rotation without other voting.

thank you and best regards Good

Think I'll give it a shot as well, got some ideas for a banner already Dancey
The banners will be voted on I assume? And is there a deadline?

If I can find the time, I can help make a full rebrand for G.U.N. including the forum buttons/logos/banners/etc. I think this would be a really cool project for me, just hope I can fit it in with my video schedule. Anyways, hope to see tons of people pitch into this rebranding for the new name G.U.N.! Smile

Came up with these two banners:

A little inspired by: http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/fallout/images/0/05/Votf.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20110116001328


Used MrMeowMeow's screenshot for this one.

I have no words Very Happy
thank you baukje and linoro! you guys rock!  RockOn  Air Guitar

I love all of them, except, well, we should only have one version of each (no duplicates)
so the skyrim one which was MrMeowMeow's winning shot in the winter contest,
he already chose the current design which is already in rotation

and the beautiful ladies from Linoro's set look better with just GUNetwork
(the text is clearer and less squishy/crowded)

everything else is pure badassery and I'm implementing the "Users Online" ones now cause we really had no alternative than the VGU ones TongueTril

I'd like to hear more feedback from our gfx crew and other members!
which do you like most? which should be in rotation?

P.S. Oh and @dinax! Thank you for your submissions!
I like the middle one the most!

it's alright Very Happy I'd still like some more "Who is Online" images, though
we had 7, and we can't settle for just 3 closed eyes smile

try some with a transparent background, maybe with an actual gun
try a few with symbols or logos from known games too

cheers
