I would like to nominate xzisted's 2nd Borderlands banner:

to replace #7:
 

Reason being is there is 13 fallout themed banners (not including screenshot contest winners and mod banners) currently in rotation 1/5 of them and I think #7 is the most basic of them. Also, this is a really good banner.

I like the 7 but if i have to choose which one is better then i go with the borderlands banner. so from me a YEAH! i also want to nominate the witcher3 banner from AdvancedTerror. its a very good one and we dont got a single one from this game.

also i asked in a few post before, if we should set the amount of rotating banners to 5 more. cause the decission which one should be replaced is very hard.

I vote YES to replace 7 with xzisted's Borderlands banner.

For AdvancedTerror's Witcher banner I vote YES but until we come to an agreement on increasing the number of banners in rotation, I would suggest replacing 44 with it.
44 is a nice clean banner but perhaps a bit too simple. The font is nice but other than that is is just a woman's face on a plain black background.

I agree with Cruz, as we replace more banners the decisions are becoming more difficult.

I think that banner 44 is very classy and sexy at the same time.
I vote on replacing banner 50 instead. the text looks low-res and the white background of it contrasts to the dark blue background of the site too much. also, the "artsy" style of the MGS characters are lower quality than the clear, hirez image of the woman in 44 (she's Elizabeth from Bioshock right?)
so I vote either 50...
or 46 now that I think of it. the source image has a poor contrast (the suit and the tank in the background aren't very clear or well defined because they're mostly mono-chromatic and small and overlapping) and the sky also looks like it's been extended towards the left. furthermore the text doesn't match anything in the picture chromatically, although it's a cool font style. I'd lean towards replacing 46 rather than 50, but either are okay.

I'll also vote YES on the Psycho banner to replace 7

we will add 5 more banners to rotation when we'll have 5 excellent banners to add at once.

personally I'd nominate the following:
Spoiler:
 

that last one with hitman is amazing InLove
but feel free to suggest different banners for the extra 5.
These are my top 5 from the most recent uploads
but I may not have noticed others well enough
also, we really need a good, simple Mad Max (game) banner
Mad Max Muscle Car I saw that one was posted by someone,
but it had this weird ashy hashing under the text...
let's get on it Thumbs Up

I did the Mad Max one:
for reference:
 
I was really surprised no one else had made one. I'm working on another at the moment  but there are a lot of good promotional shots out there so others should put their designs forward.

I agree with DVAted 44 is an excellent banner, and is very aesthetically pleasing. It represents the game and character very well. Its Elizabeth from Bioshock 4; more specifically the DLC Burial at Sea (great DLC btw). That DLC has a very strong, sexy noir vibe and the banner nails that in a simple way. So I'd vote no to replacing it. I vote for replacing no. 46 with my Witcher 3 Banner.

I also think that adding 5 more banners would be a good idea, there are a lot of good banners being made. The 5 that DVAted suggested are excellent and I'd vote for them.

My mind was just blown by OakshieldDream just now
I expected her to keep trying but she outdid herself with these:

Spoiler:
 
mind=blown

With those 3 and the Mad Max banner just put together by xzisted we have 4 more
https://i.imgur.com/AOJRY12.png
and anticipating another great Mad Max banner from AdvancedTerror
I suggest we raise the banner limit to 60 instead of 55
But then, like, we should stop increasing the limit for like... till November at least, when Fallout 4 comes out haha

What do you think? Too many banners? I just...
I just can't choose between these new ones closed eyes smile

I would say lets put them all in. 60 banner to rotate. And then lets make a break with banners. And perhaps focus on other things like mod banners hehe or GUN wallpapers.

I'm in agreement, I think 60 banners is a nice round number to stop at for now. As said before, now that we're getting to the higher quality banners to put into rotation the decisions are becoming much more difficult.
Also with the great improvements that @OakshieldDream has made I would not be opposed to her joining the GFX Specialist team. Thumbs Up

Cruz brings up a good point about the Mod banners. We haven't reached 10 in the rotation yet but there have been many banners created thus far. Are we still waiting approval from the mod authors?

As the number of banners we recieve rise from day to day, we should make a brake. I will make a list with all new posted banners from thelast few weeks, to have a better overview. So we can pic out the best 10 banners to fill in the 60. i will start the list on saturday. What do you think?

That sounds like a good idea to me. I know that with my recent absence I'm sure I have missed out on seeing some great banner submissions.
Also having all the banners posted together allows for better comparison between them so it would make choosing a favorite a little easier.

So many good banners to choose from but only 10 spots open, this has definitely become more difficult. BrickWall Headbutt
It took a bit of time and careful consideration but I have managed to narrow down the selection of recent entries to 10 banners that I think would be excellent additions to the current rotation.
The following banners are listed in numerical order, not preference.

My picks:
#5
#6 (after a resize to 900x200)
#8
#10
#11
#13
#17
#18
#20
#22 (after a resize to 900x200)

Again this was a tough decision, all the banners were fantastic and I'd choose them all if I could. Thumbs Up

Great lineup, Cruz Thumbs Up

My Top 10 choices are
2, 8, 9, 10, 11, 14, 16
and 6, 21, 22 by Oakshield
apparently her banners were auto-down-sized when she uploaded them.
they need to be resized, like Drayce pointed out

Also, I think there are about 5 more I'd select closed eyes smile but we only decided on 10
It is a really tough decision, though, good job from everyone Applauses
Cheers

Concerning the 24 banners above, the 10 banners I choose are numbers 1, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 14, 16, 17, and 18.

Spoiler:
 

I'd vote yes for both of these too, that Witcher banner is cool.

Awesome work @Cruz011 this makes the whole process a lot easier.

My selections are:

#1
#2
#6
#8
#10
#14
#16
#17
#18
#22

These banners are all really good, to choose just ten was difficult, these are the ten that just stand out a bit more.

I vote YES for @xzisted's "Passion Never Dies" mod banner.

I also vote YES on @xzisted's banner, however it needs a tiny fix. Underneath the image where the mod description and author is located the background should be transparent.
