Time For A New ECTOs Community Forums Banner

Since [meh] is on the outs, the Agents Of Indecision [meh] banner is outdated. It's time for a new one.



Banner theme can be anything:

As for actual banner themes, it doesn't matter specifically. Whatever works for the majority. Just try and come up with something we won't all get sick of in about a week. Wink



Text on the banner:

Choices:

1) A banner with ECTOs Community written on it

OR

2) A banner with both resident guild names on it:

We Play High End For Double [Onyx]

Visionary Masterminds [xEYE]

OR

3) No text on the banner at all. (Just a banner image)


Although the first and third options don't seem all that enticing, keep in mind that the header message underneath the banner has both tags listed (Home Of [Onyx] And [xEYE]) so the relevant info is up at the top of the forums regardless.



Banner Dimensions:

NO GREATER THAN 1000x300 pixel dimensions

This is completely irrelevant to the post sorry, but what exactly is xEye? Is it a kurzick guild, sister guild, guild for alts, something else entirely?

It's another guild entirely, although it is meant to be complimentary to meh (and now Onyx) rather than a competing guild. This community has people who go way back, people who just joined up, people who want a hardcore approach to high end as meh/Onyx offers, people who may not jive with meh/Onyx's style and would rather take it a bit more casual but still want to be an active part of this community, people who are still active as hell, people who used to be active and don't really play all that much anymore, etc.. Basically, people from all directions who are heading in all directions, but with the common interest of wanting to stay in touch in some capacity. This greater community has existed for years, and from this point forward it doesn't have to be all meh/Onyx or nothing (ie. GTFO). I sure as hell don't want people to feel that way. The main goal is to offer enough options so everyone has something to relate to and in that way we can (hopefully) keep as many people around as possible for as long as possible (...until Guild Wars 2). This is where xEYE comes in.


I am still finalizing the About xEYE thread (minor setback with my virus problem last week), which will explain more in detail about xEYE's specific approach. As for the guild itself, it is still relatively young so there's not much going on just yet. Plans are to build it up very soon, however.


EDIT: FWIW, xEYE is Kurzick and people are welcome to roster hop if they need to work on their titles or what-not (or for any other reason). Not an issue at all. John, for instance, finished up his Kurzick title as a (temp) member of xEYE.

i need to get up and do a few things around the house... but um... a banner with the pyramid eye thingy and an onyx could be the alternative to actual text on an image or textured bg. just a thought. bbl.

The P in Play is kind of hard to see. Doesn't look bad. The chest should be highlighted more in order to see it better.

Ill try and make something. i mean, the ones we have had in the past are probably a little better than what ill put together, just because i dont have the cool pictures of guildwars areas that other have had. unless someone has some pictures? i can make something out of them.

lol Blake, it's a code that you can type in your sig whenever you make it to display other users names. Whoever looks at it, it displays their name. I got confused with it the first time as well. Here is the link to get all the codes.

Change the font color to something more appealing to the eyes. That color can end up giving someone a headache.

Change those plans!

Instead Of Visionary Masterminds [xEYE], use We Farm Your [ECTOs] instead! Smile


I still have to install Photoshop on this computer after my Windows 7 installation, so for the next few days at least, I'm shit out of luck with regards to working on images myself.

They're alright, Blake. Nothing really jumps out at me though. The one with the blue font and the fiery eyes (your first one) was the best IMO.

What I would like to see is a banner where the names don't look so slapped on over the rest of the image but blend in nicely.
