Vote for what banner you want to be used.

Hey, who knows, maybe we can use both. :) I know theres an option to have switching banners.

Both are good, on one hand insanes shows fans at their "finest" but z's shows a wide variety, i gotta vote Z.

Hmm a very tough decision....I think I like Insanes better, since it does show some friends in action. But over all they are both good.

I'd go with the top one..

Z's is too red. And Insane's has both Darth Tater and Midnight Madness on it. Tough choice because I like all the crap on Z's, but I'd go with Insane's.

Oh crap. It's a tie. If Z and Insane vote, they'll just vote for their own and that won't help :p

We could ask the admins if they could do a switching one that'll load one at random, win-win I say.

Katarn07
08-01-2005, 03:36 PM
Yeah, yeah. That just may work. They had alternating banners in JKII.net before, didn't they? I really only lurked in the Swamp once in a while at night and read the stuff in the RPG sections.

My stores didn't open at midnight. TPM toys came out on Monday. I had off, someone died and there was a memorial in her memory. Since my school was a part of the church, the faculty couldn't be in two places at once. Anywho, we went to the stores when they opened. It was crazy! We didn't do anything special for AotC. We went Sat morning for RotS like we did TPM. They had a Wal Mart employee dressed in full stormie gear and everything! Not as many people showed as for TPM....

I think the switchin banners would be good, since the people the population of voters (Total of FOUR people :p) are split and seem to like both.

What was this topic about? I was too distracted by that pointless dribble :p

Anyone know when the banners at LF will go into effect? I know they're working on all the other technical stuff before doing visually pleasing effects.

Some forums have new banners don't they?

Katarn07
08-04-2005, 11:50 AM
There's only one banner per entire network. When you go into individual areas, say collecting vs EU, they're gonna have different banners. Has anywhere else got it? I only come here and post a bit in the Swamp at JK.net.

It's not even decent for SW as a whole. It's got all PT stuff on it. That ain't SW. Get some OT stuff too. Fricken' Darth Vader is where it's all at. He is SW.

Did I tell you I finally watched Mr. Deeds? One of the first movies I picked up when I started at Hollywood. That was the funniest part of the whole movie is when they sing that on the plane. And 'my back hurts!' which is something me and my friends just shout out at random.

daring dueler
08-04-2005, 01:18 PM
Yah lol, i like that part in the plane.. Also im a fan of ym back hurts, after he beats that guy lol...

yah lol, i love the plane scene.
Also it is funny he yells my back hurts, after going down the banaster lol..
I like when he just beats that guy who was "mugging" the girl.

08-04-2005, 01:23 PM
Yeah. Not my fav Sandler movie though. I haven't seen that new one yet nor do I really have a big desire to do so.

daring dueler
08-04-2005, 01:38 PM
I havnt seen it either, his new stuff is lacking what Happy Gilmore and Billy Madison had.

Shallow plot and complete lunacy? I agree! That's what this world needs more of.

daring dueler
08-04-2005, 01:52 PM
Yup, that is what is needed lol. Nice way to describe it by the way.

We need more hand to hand combat with Bob Barker.

Katarn07
08-04-2005, 02:05 PM
Hehe, yeah. Wedding Crashers is probably far funnier than that last Sandler movie (or in my book, all but maybe possibly his earliest movies).

daring dueler
08-04-2005, 02:09 PM
Id say its safe to say funnier than all of them. Im a much bigger fan of vince vaun and own wilson then adam sandler. Btw i cant wait for that 40 yr old virgin movie, Steve Correl is the $hit.

He acts like Brick in some scenes. Brick was one of the best parts of Anchorman.

*was talking with matt and figured he'd try a little photoshopping to see about a color scheme that would work well with both pictures so we could rotate them*

Z, change ur background color lol. If it werent red, it would look better.

Katarn07
08-04-2005, 04:54 PM
Or more than just red. That was my quaft. Is that a word? Quaft? If not, it is now.

EDIT - No. It's not a word. My definition for it is 'minor complaint' ;)

Quaft is a good word, like retinue, thats my word.

Guys - pick one banner.

And do it soon, so I can make a color scheme for it.

Zed's is ok in the action figure part, but over to the left it starts to look like throw up. >_>;

Vomit. Orally excreted, half-digested waste.

Its not waste, you see it becomes waste once fully digested, and is excreted through the intestines and anal cavity.

El Sitherino
08-04-2005, 07:36 PM
Its not waste
So you'd eat it again eh?

I consider it waste when it starts to look like ****.

daring dueler
08-04-2005, 07:42 PM
but it is not technically waste, you said you consider it waste based on looks, but if that were true, then noone would eat indian food....not that anyone does...

08-04-2005, 07:50 PM
Whatever it is, it's what the color scheme reminds me of on the left part of zeds banner.

08-04-2005, 09:29 PM
Why the hell can't we have two? ;_; What if I change the backround to a darker color, something like one of these:

http://img73.imageshack.us/img73/5278/banner3copy6uo.jpg

I think that way we could use Sithy and my banner.

The only reason I used red was because SOMEONE told me to try to get it like the red cards. >_>

Aye, heres what it looks like with the banners in the template you posted

Looks too pixely now. Meh, one banner? I'll go with Sith's then unless Z makes it less pixely.

Oh, and I confused Quaft with Qualm. That's what I was thinking of....

Uh, Katarn, I saved it in paint, so its gonan be pixely. look at the banner I posted above them, the ones with them on the layout I just quickly did in paint.

Katarn07

I don't care one way or the other then.... I'll let you argue because I think they both look good and I can't decide.

ZBomber
08-05-2005, 03:54 PM
They should both be used. >_> But apparently none of the admins want to do it because it takes too much work or something, but hopefully one will.

Katarn07
08-05-2005, 03:58 PM
They used to do it with vB2 and I doubt an upgrade would get rid of something like that. It must take too long or they just don't care. I wouldn't if I were them :p

Thats actually not a bad idea, but I dunno how it would look.

I combined Sithy and my banner, and took the strong points of each one. Sithy had unique stuff, like the midnight madness, EU figures, and the darth taters. I included my Boba Fett, series packages, and the backround. I also added a 12 Inch greivous.

Awesome. Use that or the new one Sith is modifying. Either way is good by me. I hate Grievous with a passion, but I'll admit save for his flimsy arms, that 12" Grievous is one of the best pieces they've done.
