This are the banners that i nominate to replace:

banner to replace #17:
 

banner to replace #18:
 

banner to replace #40:
 

Reason to replace: #17 and #18 were already named to be replaced so i picked them cause of this. also we had two other similar
                        banners from Fallout4

                        #40 is nothing special to me. the font has no effect. is it lara croft? i dont know. its no action in the
                        picture.

this are my nominees cheers

Now that's a healthy form of nomination, Cruz, good work Thumbs Up

I vote YES on the first. Not sure whose fan art that is, or if it's concept art, and why "GUN" which is an acronym is spelled "Gun" (probably cause it looks better in cursive) but it looks fine. The replaced Fallout 4 banner has a good image, but the text is executed poorly.

I vote YES on the second nomination. though I don't quite get the black bars above and below (would've been cooler to imitate the blue of the forums, or leave them transparent), and though the text is quite small (stuffy), they're executed well and it looks quite alright. The text on the replaced banner bugged me a bit, so YES.

YES on the 3rd nomination. Though the text seems a bit too low (not centered on the y scale) and the smoke gets cut on the bottom, and though the figures, albeit epic and recognizable, are a bit too brooding and static closed eyes smile I think it's a fine Star Wars banner, and we only have one other of those now. The replaced banner might show Zoey from L4D, and it's a fine execution, but it's indeed a bit boring and hard to recognize.

Cheers

As a new GFX team member, I figured the best way to learn the ropes is to jump right in.
I'd like to nominate this banner by @Cruz011 to replace number 25 in rotation.
Replacing #25:
 
My reason for choosing 25 is although I like the Halo franchise and the image is nice, I think the lettering could be improved upon.
Cruz has done fantastic work with this Tomb Raider themed banner and I think it would be a shame not to have it in rotation.

I'm gonna give this one a YES. 25 is alright but not great, the text is too dark, not enough contrast. Plus the font is meh.

Scoreboard
Replacing #25 - 2 YES

I vote with YES to replace the #25.

@The New Skynet - what do you mean with "meh"? What does it mean? Try to translate it on the web with no luck. Sounds like a sheep. Mehhhh

banners 17, 18 and 40 have officially been updated just now

I vote YES on Drayce's suggestion, but I'm afraid Cruz is gaining a monopoly now TongueTril
so Skynet, Drayce, pick up the pace Very Happy
at the very least, in this endeavor
https://www.gunetwork.org/t6322-gunetwork-mods-screenshots-for-banners#121476

we should set a maximum number to these types of banners as well,
since they won't be in the big rotating 50

Best regards

In order to keep Cruz from having a monopoly, lol! I would like to suggest one of my own banners for inclusion.
Replacing #30:
 
30 is not a bad banner at all but it is a bit simple and lackluster. While there are a few Halo banners already I don't think there are any representing the Final Fantasy series.

Although I love the banner you've presented, I disagree with replacing 30.
I'm not a halo fan in the slightest, but I think we'd do better to replace 15. or 41.
15. mainly because of the blurry text and because we have far more Fallout mods than Halo.
41. because I can't relate that woman's face to the ME series at all. Not only because I played as male-shep, but if I had played as fem-shep, I would've customized her face/hair features.
I'm sure there are plenty who love fem-shep, but there are far more those who haven't played as her with that appearance.

I also would love to nominate @Praefect's Hitman banner to replace either 15. or 41.

You make a good point I agree with replacing 15 or 41 instead of 30.
I vote YES on Praefect's banner. Although I've never played any of the games, the image was instantly recognizable as the Hitman franchise. It's a nice clean banner.

I vote YEAH to replace Drayce banner with #41

I vote No to replace Praefects banner with #15.
i like #15 its the 50's style vault pin up and the font is handmade. Looks to me like she vrote it with her lipstick. Only the kissmouthe is missing.

Instead i nominate Praefects hitman banner to replace #26.
the alien is cut of and also hard to recognice. i think we could make a much better one.

@DVAted - #25 needs to be updated - i can count 3 YES on my monopoly hehehehe lol!

SO as I said, these are the banners confirmed by mod authors
KRIEG COMPANION BY DVATED:
 
BF3 ASSAULT PACK BY MASTER_SHIFU:
 
STAR WARS BY CPT.REX:
 
OXIDE ENB BY TRU3TH:
 
TRU-ENB BY TRU3TH:
 
RIDDICK COMPANION BY DRAGBODY:
 
RUST ENB BY ORMRSNAETHORSEN:
 
... more to come ...

I'd also like to reiterate the fact that the April-May and July 2014 and June 2015 Screenshot Contest banners were confirmed by MrMeow and Cpt.Rex so they're in the set now as well.
these ones:

I'd like to nominate the following banner replacements:
by xzisted:
https://i.imgur.com/KnMadew.png
to replace 15.
I get the whole sexy boomer lady with the lipstick text
and I understand the effort and decent result of the banner author
but it just feels off. the text's too blurry and the girl's body is mostly cropped off.
xzisted did an outstanding job with the text glow effects and the backdrop pic is perfectly framed

also
https://i.imgur.com/izVyzAZ.png to replace 21
because I don't know who those anime guys are and well... GUN should have a Gunzerker lol
xzisted did a fine job on it - great color matching, cool text covered by the character partially and an elegant outline sell me on the appearance.

so are we okay on Drayce's banner replacing 41 and the hitman banner by Praefect replacing 15 or 26? I'm okay with 26 too, but then I'd still like Xzisted's fo4 banner to replace the 15th.

WE NEED more GFX Specs voting here!

@The New Skynet - we haven't seen a scoreboard update in a good while. What's up? This is why people need hierarchy, and this is what happens when the team leader is away...

I say YEAH to replace #15, #26 and #41, with those you said.

There are also other vers good new banners out there. We should think about to set the amount a bit higher then 50. perhaps 5 more?

We got a good witche 3 one i think from AdvancedTerror. But i cant make a choice which one to replace.

Excellent work, Cruz! Excellent work!
You only forgot to add your vote about Mattafex's banner
but in this case, add mine too. Shadow of Mordor is an amazing game!
and the chromatic of that banner goes well with our site

I will make the banner replacings tomorrow  Thumbs Up
