PostSubject: ECTOs Community Forums Banners: A Retrospective Gallery   2011-06-13, 9:56 pm

Here are all of the banners we've used on these forums over their lifespan:




Fatal Ultimatum [FU]


Legends In Our Own [Mind] was a failure in everyone's mind. With the onset of a new establishment and community identity, a new banner came too:









We Farm Your [ECTOs]


Our original ECTOs Community forums banner was a giant Guild Wars logo that Reave threw in there, for the original ECTOs Forumotion forums (now gone), but I didn't save it. It was nothing major - just the logo clipart from GuildWars.com in jumbo size.


A bunch of the then-current guild members posed for this shot, which became known as our Tonic Pose Crotch Bambi banner. This banner was originally used on our old Farmers Unite [FU] Forumer forums when we originally started building up ECTOs and then used here after these forums were set up:





Spart made this Sin banner which we used for much of our 2009 SC peak era:





Spart's GW2 Dragons banner:





Our short-lived ECTOs Alliance in late 2009 also saw us welcome another guild into the ECTOs Community forums fold - Peace With Quiet [Hush], and a banner was made to represent that:





Agrippa (Dan) made the awesome Double Aatxes emblem and with the (then) new-addition of the endchest and Dhuum to the UW, I put together a banner that actually represented our guild name properly:





As [meh] began to fade, the ECTOs Community had grown to span two guilds instead of [meh] alone. I set up a side guild [xEYE] and gathered up all the other people besides myself who had grown disenchanted with being in [meh] itself. Reave and I thought a forums banner depicting the ECTOs Community was the best way to go. This was Reave's concoction:





These next two banners were made by Reave for older forums themes. I still think the top one uses a font like it's an ad for cookware or something of that sort, lol. I always hated the bottom banner & the theme that came with it:








Here is a revision of our old Agrippa Double Aatxes banner using the badass GW2 font that a member on GW2Guru made:





As our (collective) interest in Guild Wars 1 faded and We Farm Your [ECTOs] was put into retirement, it was time to revert the forums to a more community-driven focus:





When it appeared that the end had truly come, but as they say, in time all things begin anew:








A mock "Pimp My Ride"-esque ECTOs Banner that I threw together as a joke during the ECTOs-Hush banner creation days:









Agents Of Indecision [meh]


Quick [meh] banner whipped up for that guild's early formation stages:





Ghost's [meh] banner that was used for most of the short-lived [meh] run:





A couple of unused Reave GW2 art [meh] mockup banners:

I liked the tonics one the best because it reminds me of when we actually had enough people online to do that.
