I've been thinking about ways to create some activity in the forums, and recently I thought the idea borrowing the forum banners feature from YouChew to this website. Ironically I had this idea by the time the topic dedicated to banners on YouChew got locked because the site ran out of slots for new banners and new members would concentrate in this thread and place one hundred of those in the same page.
But yeah, banners. The first time I mentioned them was when I was working on the new character poses for the website and had the idea of placing them in three themed banners. The dev team and testers liked them a lot. I believe creating banners in the forum's header, with some coding and such, could entertain all members and give more life to this place.
The banners should have a bit of restrictions, like the resolution and the quality of the images (many banners made by new members from YouChew had the dreadful sin of having the pics stretched out like if they were made in MS Paint in one minute), not to mention that the banners should represent something relatable to the community.
Here's my concept banners from a year ago.
The colors look dull because lol JPEG.
Anyway, what do you guys think?
