Hello GUNners
You may have had a few minor heart attacks visiting the site today
We're implementing a MONTH LONG CELEBRATION
of the STAR WARS UNIVERSE
LightSaberBattle
As many of you know, May the Fourth (4 May) is the international Star Wars day
Here at GUNetwork we celebrate all month!

We have a few graphical elements (banners, buttons, users online tabs) in regard to this

and WE WELCOME USER SUBMITTED MATERIAL

Any suggestions for color settings, any new banners or forum buttons you may develop
We'd be glad to implement them!

So let's make this a community effort
and have the best Star Wars dedicated month on the internet!!!

As a personal idea and request
I'd love it if these two banners:
May the Force be with us! Star Wars Month Event 4I9E18xQ May the Force be with us! Star Wars Month Event Z7h4FC9S
would be animated!
kind of like this
http://i.imgbox.com/tFvB9XEM.gif
but using the images I posted as a basis.

and it would be great if we had this animated:
May the Force be with us! Star Wars Month Event 500px-Hyperspace-SWPuzzle
for the background!

Big Props to the GFX crew for making the new banners and Users Online and forum buttons!

Let's see some more!
May the Force be with you!
LightSaberBattle

Hope we have a great Star Wars month on the site this year!

I wonder what kind of surprises Disney has for us on Wednesday?

Considering the fact the the first Rogue One trailer only released last month, I doubt we'll get another one so soon. Probably in another 3-4 months, though.

As for Episode 8, they haven't even finished shooting it yet. We'll probably get the reveal of the official name for it, though. I would also expect a teaser for it sometime in November-December.

This event is just perfectly timed as I'm watching every Star Wars movie again. Started yesterday evening with Episode 1 and currently watching Episode 2. I am having goosebumps all over my body during the entirety of the movie. May the force be with ya'll!

Good question
all banners must the 900x200
not smaller, not larger

the forum category and subforum buttons are 50x50

the users online buttons should be no wider than 105 pixels, but height may vary between 250-400 pixels

Cheers

I like the new design of the forum for this event the chosen colors make well with the background.
I hope there is more information about the future movies or the mysterious game developed by Visceral.

Some quick advice for this whole thing. I would say to change the background of the site from an animated one to a static one. Animatedd b ackground looks really compressed and tacky, makes the site look like it's some geocities website from the 90s. Also adjust the thickness and the position of the lightsaber beam in these parts
Spoiler:
 

Make it so the beam is small enough to act as an underline for the text, rather than blocking it out.

Other than that, everything seems to be fine, Happy Star Wars month TongueTril

@sixshooter it's not blocking it and no the site does NOT look like a ' geocities website from the 90s '

I'm looking at this from a design perspective. The overall appearance is fine, the background just makes it look tacky and old because of the compression, also backgrounds are rarely ever animated anymore. There's no need to get so defensive about it, I wasn't attacking anyone or anything, just offering some points that could help the site overall.

And yes, while the lightsaber beam doesn't entirely block the text, it really isn't good for readability

you're perfectly apt to bring solutions to the problems you've referred to, SixShooter
now if you're willing, that's a different story
the header bars are in the topic starter and have been there since the start
also you can right-click and "view background image" on the headers to see them too.
making them thinner and lower isn't really what I'm thinking would be favorable
that's why I've suggested an animated version.

It's a nice theme, I like it. The back ground is fine, I think it adds to character and also I quiet like the idea of this Star Wars Event.

Thumbs Up

I recorded this footage in SpaceEngine and made it an seamless infinite loop. If you look closely, you'll see how super compressed it is. But that's only because I don't know the maximum file size is for optimal performance on this site.
